I’ve always loved Reese Witherspoon. I loved her in Legally Blonde, Cruel Intentions, Sweet Home Alabama and Wild. I actually remember watching her on Oprah and Oprah asking her if she had a private chef. Her response, “Yes, I do. And her name is Reese.” And she said it with her great smile and laugh, and I thought, wow, what a great woman who is focused on her family and being grounded.
And now I love her even more after reading her interview in this month’s InStyle.
In the article, Reese talks about how she’s grown in Hollywood, how her grandmother inspired her love of fashion and how she hopes to be the best role model for her daughter. My favorite quote, “I was always pretty outspoken, actually, but now I’ve learned to say sorry when I make mistakes too.”
This is a great piece of advice. I’ve noticed that a lot of people don’t know how to acknowledge when they make a mistake. It takes a far greater person to admit to a mistake, to learn from it and to not do it again. Reading that it took Reese a while to learn this gives me hope for the future, that people can change.
Reese also talks about how women are natural born problem solvers and that there should be gender equality in Congress. Now, I don’t want to go on a political tangent, but I have to agree. Women are definitely under represented in the government and the workforce in general. I usually don’t like when celebrities push political agendas, but for some reason when Reese says it, I listen. She’s calm, collected and I can tell she really thinks about what she wants to say. And for that, I appreciate her opinions.
And, let’s face it, women are the far better gender! 🙂 (just kidding, sorta)
Do you love Reese Witherspoon? What’s your favorite movie of her’s? Do you think women are the better gender?
