Reese Witherspoon Walks for Breast Cancer

Reese Witherspoon, Avon Global Ambassador and Honorary Chair of the Avon Foundation, joins walkers at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Washington, D.C. on Sunday. The weekend-long event attracted 3,500 participants who raised $8.1 million.

Here’s what Reese, 32, had to say at the event:

On her kids Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4: “[They have] always kind of known me to be who I was, and if people know Mom at the grocery store, I think they kind of like it. Obviously, if you’re not having the greatest day, it’s not always easy, but for the most part, (fame) brings a lot of positive things into our life.”

On her role as an Avon ambassador: “I’ve always been very focused on creating positive images and doing things to give back to women.”

On her Four Christmases co-star Vince Vaughn: “He’s great! He’s so funny. We had a great time riffing off each other. Sometimes I would just cry from laughing so hard.”

On her daughter Ava: “She has a very giving spirit, so it’s great to encourage that. There’s a great responsibility to educate your children and show them what’s important in life, which includes giving back.”

On why she participated in this event: “I am very excited to be partnering with the Avon Foundation and to help them continue to affect real change. I feel a great responsibility in my own life to give back to society. As the Honorary Chairman of the Avon Foundation, one of my first experiences last year was to meet Avon Walk walkers at a training walk in Los Angeles. Now I am proud to support the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer here in Washington, D.C. and hope my presence can in some measure express my deep appreciation for all the women and men who participate in the Avon Walks, and for all of the people who dedicate their lives to breast cancer research and care.”

Aww- I love Reese. God Bless her always.

# 3

Doesn’t get better than Reese.

# 4

She is such a PR ***** I can’t stand her!!! She makes me sick!! And is uglier than sin!

# 5

I always have a feeling that Reese’ children will grow up as a caring person as their mother. Reese will have a lunch with her mother and her children on Mother Day next weekend. It is very easy to imagine how her mother feels to have such a great daughter. :)

Is she preg? Check her tummy!

# 7

Rse – How do you know that Reese will be having lunch with her mother and children on Mother’s Day next week? Do you know her personally and know her true plans for that day? My my, and what about her boy toy Jake ? Won’t he be there as well?

her forehead is pregnant.

awesome
she is a role model for evryone out there

She does look pregnant in some of the photos.

She is a doll. I love her she is so talented. Seems like a great mom. Come on ladies, have you never been bloated??????

She would like to show herself to the press.!
It seems like a insect whose the DDT spray would be hit and it can’t get your bearing or find orientation. How many “charity shows” she showed her horrible face…
It is better she take some color feather behind her body and say for another people that she is a peacock.
Charity organization is a serious thing. It isn’t a way for people promote yourself.

She is so cute. Can’t wait for her next movie. I saw her hot pics on a millioniare dating site called [Ri c h k i ss . com]. Was it her? I’m not sure. Charlie sheen said he found great dates there before. Maybe the celebs like that special site.

S has Projection problem. if the problem is too severe, u need a doctor.

This glasses are so big to her small face, they are probably Jake’s..
She is so cute on this pics….

@s – do us a favour and take your mental problems elsewhere!

I don´t care whether Reese does use this for a little self promotion or not – it is an important cause and should get all attention and support it deserves.

Nina – I bet you are a girl/woman and you must have breasts. Don’t you think it is necessary for you to put aside your dislike (I think “hate” would be too strong) against Reese and see the reasons behind her action? She did not promote any movies, she tries to raise money for women who suffer from breast cancer. Don’t you think it needs also your support, as a woman?
I would prefer to support her action than some shopping actions from some celebs.

Solaris, you are amazing person!!!!
Your comments are so mature…..

I am an Avon Rep. myself and we’re so proud to have Reese on our “team”!! And her braided hair looks so cute here …

People hating Reese and calling her ugly sound so ANGRY!! Wonder what their problem is?

Taking issue with someone who is trying to help those with breast cancer is sick.

Reese looks a little like Britney in these photos. She seems happier than she has in years.

JJ,

give us a break with Phonyspoon PR.

The one and only reason Reese was there is because Avon paid her to be there. Charity my a55!
