Reese Witherspoon Reveals If She'd Ever Go Into Politics

Reese Witherspoon is opening up about whether she’d run for political office one day.

The 44-year-old actress and producer was a guest on the “SmartLess” podcast with Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes, and was asked about her possible political aspirations.

“I think you’d get a lot of the vote,” Jason told her.

“Yeah, I mean our standards have become very low in this country,” she joked, adding, “I wouldn’t say never, because I don’t know where I’m going to be when I’m, you know, 65.”

Reese did go on to talk about her concerns with representation in politics.

“I think we need better representation and balance. Women are 50 per cent of the population, but we’re not 50 per cent of the representation in government, which is bizarre, particularly when they’re adjudicating over our bodies,” she shared. “And the lack of representation of people of color, who make up a large, almost majority of this country. What about balance, you know? Just yin and yang. Male, female balance.”

Reese has starred in movies where her characters were very involved in politics, including Legally Blonde 2, and Election.

If you missed the news, a third Legally Blonde movie is in the works!
