Reese Witherspoon: EW Cover Girl!

Reese Witherspoon: EW Cover Girl!

Reese Witherspoon takes the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, on newsstands Friday, December 10!

Here’s what the 34-year-old How Do You Know actress had to share:

On handling a divorce in Hollywood: “It definitely sometimes feels like a suit that I wish I could zip off. But I don’t feel bad about any of the things I’ve gone through, whether it’s divorce or breakups or anything like that, because that’s all part of the life journey, and I have those experiences just like anyone else. And I think it deepens what you tap into creatively. [Pauses] My favorite quote is from Martha Stewart: ‘I have a short memory for painful things.’ And I do. I have one of those incredible memories where I just erase painful things. Maybe that’s really unhealthy, and I probably need to see a therapist. But I don’t dwell. You just keep going forward. Also, I have kids. What are you going to do? Are you going to teach them to be one of those people who keep looking in the rearview mirror, or are you going to teach them to be one of those people who go, ‘Tomorrow’s another day’?”

On whether she Googles herself: “Oh, only in very, very dark moments—moments of pure self-loathing—do I type my name into Google. [Laughs] And I know what I’m in for. You never read anything positive—you always go straight to where you know they’re going to say something nasty about you.”

On coming up in Hollywood when there weren’t so many blogs: “God, I wish I would have known—I would have done more bad s—!”

Reese is the best!

# 2

is that a shemale? BAD BAD picture! she looks much better than this!

# 3

I cannot stand this phoney-@ssed woman! She sounds hard and shallow and selfish in this interview. I agree you should always try to look forward, but if you are a real person, you allow yourself to experience pain. I will not see her movies.

And where is the bigger picture?? ;)

I saw How Do You Know. All the funny moments are in the trailers. It isn’t very good and she has NO chemistry with Owen or Paul for that matter. You never believe that her character is into either one of them. Plus that she has a distracting mustache the ENTIRE movie. I don’t know if it was a lighting issue or what. I don’t think Reese is a person who has a lot of FEELINGS so naturally breakups don’t bother her. Unfortunately her lack of emotion was one of the problems with this movie.

Sounds good. She’s just keeping it moving which is very healthy.

@JP fans are fallen angels:

this is 2010. Jake is with Taylor Swift and Reese is with her agent boyfriend.

She is so incredibly into herself. She doesn’t feel pain! She’s plucky and optimistic! For her kids!!! People say bad thing about her and it doesn’t matter! Because she’s so awesome! And she never did anything bad!!

why is she famous? she’s ugly and has no talent.

She was very fun and easy in her early work and the shotgun wedding was a nice touch

This phony b i t c h.


Hey Reese! Jay Leno called – he wants his chin back!

i can never understand where all this hate for reese comes from. i dont see anything wrong with this woman. she seems like a nice person and a great mom. and she’s definitely not the worst actress in hollywood. so what if she likes to move on from the pain, thats a good thing. who the hell likes mopey people who constantly dwell on things that can’t be changed

She’s annoying.

i like her! beautiful children!

Reese Witherspoon is so dumb, phony and fugly.

@Hello?: This is 2010.
Jake Gyllenhaal’s showmance with Reese Witherspoon ended last year.
Jake is now bearding with Taylor Swift.
Reese has CAA gigolo for photo ops.

Do people have really low reading skills?
How can “I erase painful things” be read as “she doesn’t feel pain”.
She said SHE WENT THROUGH those experiences.

She’s awesome! People hate her because they envy her~
