Reese Witherspoon on Sofia Vergara: 'She's the Next Lucille Ball'

Reese Witherspoon on Sofia Vergara: 'She's the Next Lucille Ball'

Reese Witherspoon is so spring chic on the cover of InStyle magazine’s May 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her friendship with Sofia Vergara: “As soon as I met Sofia, I said, ‘I want to make a movie with you.’ I think she’s the next Lucille Ball. She and I together are such a funny thing because we represent two completely different cultures and kinds of women, but we just love each other. We laughed so much. I couldn’t understand what she was saying half the time. She couldn’t understand what I was saying half the time. But we both love cake, clothes, kids and our families.”

On her role models: “I grew up seeing incredibly strong women like Holly Hunter, Sigourney Weaver and Debra Winger. I want to ensure that my 15-year-old daughter, Ava, grows up seeing those types of strong women playing complicated parts.”

On her friends and fears: “I learned a few years ago that there are people who don’t want good things for you. You’ve got to get away from them. Now I surround myself with supportive friends. I have a close group of girlfriends I call my Southern Mafia. One’s from Oklahoma, one’s from Arkansas, another’s from Tennessee. I get a lot out of my relationships with them. Parenting, getting through your marriage, getting through your day, these are hard things, and I find solace in the fact that other people struggle with the same stuff I do. We all have concerns about our kids, our marriage, our dreams.”
