Reese Witherspoon's Idea of Relaxing: Organizing Her Closet for Four Hours!

Reese Witherspoon's Idea of Relaxing: Organizing Her Closet for Four Hours!

Reese Witherspoon stuns in a Michael Kors Collection dress on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s February 2016 issue, on newsstands January 19.

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

On how she plans to celebrate her upcoming 40th birthday: “You know, live music, eating, kids [with friends and family in Nashville]….I wanted to hike Machu Picchu. But then I was like, ‘Wait, I did enough hiking last year.’ I’m done with hiking for a minute.”

On what she likes to do when she’s at home “relaxing”: “You know what I like to do? Reorganize bookshelves and my sock drawer. [My husband] Jim’s like, ‘What have you been doing for four hours in your closet?’ I’m like, ‘Um, reorganizing my underwear?’”

On life now vs. when she was in her 20s: “I’m much more open now. In my 20s, I was scared of everything. I didn’t know what my career was. I didn’t know why people liked my movies. I was wary of interacting with people. I was 25 when ‘Legally Blonde’ came out, 26 for ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, and 29 for ‘Walk the Line’. And I was scared, really scared. Now I feel like a different person. It’s a great thing getting older. You are who you are; you say what you mean.”

    I´m so sorry for being absent for such a looong time (20 days),
    because the past post I said I´d have more time.
    But it wasn´t so. I´m so sorry, Reese !
    I will have only a few times time for the next month again.
    (Of course, I did a comment on each of the past 3 threads)
    Reese, you are looking like a beautiful red rose on the cover of Harper´s Bazar ! And the photo with the lil´ piggie is also the best photo of the past 26 photos since my past comment, really !!! Makes me wanna´ (Kiss & Embrace !!)² !!!! you ! Love you still endlessly, honey-moon-leopard !
    Reese, your latest 26 Instagram-photos are all faaaaantastic !
    I´ve seen the most of the most favourites already on the past 3 threads.
    Here my other favourites:
    1. The dog on “Let me guess. You. Right now. Am I right??”
    Yup, that dog has a yearning inside. And so does I.
    2. The dancing couple on “Mood”. Makes me wanna´ sing “Let´s dance” like David Bowie. And makes me wanna´ dance the blues with you.
    3. Your quote “The distance between dreams and reality is called action”. Usually that´s true. Except when the “dream” is an astral-journey. I still try to visit you by astral-journey. Some weeks ago I flew via astral-journey to your city, but I couldn´t find you.
    4. Your flashback on “What a year. We´re coming for ya, 2016!”
    So fine to see Heather with you.
    5. You and Bruna Papandrea at the set of Big Little Lies.
    6. You, winning the Golden Globe some years ago. You are looking so incredibly happy there. That´s so maaagical for my heart !
    7. “I need vitamin sea”. I too ! My heart needs a spoon – a Witherspoon !!
    8. Rooney and Mara on MM. Indeed, “Carol” is a magic movie !
    9. The lil dog on “Todays mood” – so cuute !
    10. The comment of Mark Zuckerberg. So right !
    All women are free to be the nerds they wanna´ be ! Free like a bee ! BTW: Makes me remember you in that bee-costume in the movie ´Penelope´ ! I´d really like to see you again in that costume one day !
    11. You and Selma and the dog Brutus on “Think Pink”. Reese, why is that photo in black and white this time?
    12. That SweetHomeAlabama-photo ! So romantic !
    13. You and that donuts ! Please, Reese, don´t eat too much of them. Donuts content a lot of so called trans-fats. Ask Betty. Trans-fats are unhealthy.
    14. The photo that honors David Bowie. So right. He made brilliant songs !
    15. The photo that contents your favourite 9 photos.
    16. The book “Year of Yes” – Yes, you say yes to all what you are.
    Selfacceptance is soooooooooo important ! So right !
    And I´d say yes to your heart, in case you´d quit with Jim in a certain future – of course, that is meant hypotheticly. At the moment you 2 are one BIG BEAUTIFUL HEART AND SOUL. And I accept that and I´ll support you 2 with all my wisdom.
    1000-SUNS-POWER-FOREVERYouWillBeInMyHeart, Darlin´ !!!
