Reese Witherspoon Topics
When I was a question on Jeopardy, that's when I felt famous.
I'm a fast-talking, sharp-shooting, tough girl. I like to think that I'm really tough on the outside, with a caramel-sweet center.
As an actress, I have always sought out roles that portrayed women as strong and powerful, such as Elle Woods, who was in the Legally Blonde movies.
I always say funny doesnt sag, which seems like a good rule of thumb. People should be more interested in your personality than how you look in a bikini. As an actress, you think about longevity, probably more than men. You hope to have a long lasting career.
I am lucky Ive had a few shots getting second chances. Thats nice. I thought I knew everything about love and relationships in my 20s, the ignorance of youth is bliss. As you get older, you start to realise that you dont really know anything and life is a great traveling journey. Life is unexpected...you just never know whats going to happen. I would love to have more kids.
My children are the best part of my day. I used to be very competitive and aggressive but when I had my first child at 22, it put my whole life in perspective and helped me get out of my very narrow-minded focus on my career. Having kids stops the endless cycle of self-obsession.
As an actress, it would be lovely to think that were all Meryl Streep or Diane Keaton who just works endlessly but thats not true. Its important to cultivate a personal life that makes you just as happy as your professional life and I work really hard on that. I spend time with my kids and my girlfriends. Its important to enrich yourself in lot of different ways.
I like to take classes, I read a lot, I have a lot of interests so your whole life isnt just about making movies. Thats a dangerous place to be.
I get it, girls, that its cool to be a bad girl. But it is possible to make it in Hollywood without doing a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed.
I was jogging and I got hit by a car...it's not funny at all. They said I am very hard headed because I landed right on my head and I have a scar, hence my new hairdo. I don't remember much about it but miraculously, and thank God, I am fine.
I'm a big organizer person. I can spend a good three hours on my sock drawer. It's fantastic!
The thing that bugs me about today's kids is that everyone gets MVP. Everybody receives the award! No! That's not right! I vividly remember the two weeks of crying when I didn't make the volleyball team. It made me interesting.
I came from a wonderful family- very intelligent people, very eccentric people, a wonderful southern family. I've been very lucky and blessed that there was a lot of love in my family, no matter what else was going on. We all love each other very much, so it really is a gift and I think that's a huge part of how I was able to achieve what I did.
I'll be honest with you. Comedy is what I want to see at the movies these days. Life is frickin' hard, man! When I go to the movies, I want to see people smiling, enjoying themselves, and having some fun. I've made other kinds of movies, for sure, but it's pretty apparent to me that [comedy] is what people want. I enjoy those kinds of movies.
My grandmother was one of the greatest inspirations in my life. She taught me how to be a real woman, to have strength and self-respect, and to never give those things away.
Vince is the funniest person I've ever worked with in my entire life. There were days when we were shooting things, I would laugh so hard it would ruin the take, and I was afraid I was going to pee on myself, it was so funny.
Family is all we have in life, but I don't know how I feel about marriage. Obviously, I'm not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again. You sort of reconstitute your family. You find a family with people who come into your life for a reason.
I think kids do best when they only have a couple of things that they really enjoy. I try and stay away from the gluttony of things. They don't appreciate it as much. When they only get one or two things, they really like it.
I want to not perpetuate any more of this kind of garbage that's out there in the media about women falling in love blindly. No one's life is perfect, and I'm sick of whatever tabloid stuff or this or that story tries to portray. My life is just as realistic as everybody else's. Whoever thinks someone has a perfect life, I'm so eager to dispel that.
Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.
