Reese Witherspoon on life after death

Reese Witherspoon believes in the afterlife.
The Oscar-winning actress has opened up about her spiritual beliefs and how she thinks when you die, you die alone, but when you go to heaven you are given an angel.

Speaking about her thoughts about life after death on Chelsea Handler's Netflix talk show, 'Chelsea', she explained: "I truly believe you're on a spiritual path that is yourself. We're born alone and we die alone.

"I think we go to heaven. I think you get an angel and the wings and a halo and the thing and all that."

And Reese is certain about her beliefs because she says she has seen the ghost of her late grandfather while she was performing on stage in New York and she even admitted she could feel her grandparents presence while she was talking to Chelsea. 

She said: "This is just me, I really believe it.

"I've had car accidents, I've given birth to babies, I swear my grandparents are in the room. I've seen my grandfather in a theater in New York when I was on the stage. I know it."

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old beauty - who has Ava, 16, and Deacon, 12, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and three-year-old son Tennessee with her spouse Jim Toth - expressed an anguish towards those who use religion to promote "intolerance" and "hate".

Talking about her roots, she said: "I grew up, obviously, in the South and there is amazing, wonderful connectivity and people are loving and communitive. "But there is a tiny aspect of it, people [that] use parts of the Bible in order to express their intolerance and their hate and they manipulate it."
