Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon

“Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“Creating a cultural icon out of someone who goes, 'I'm stupid, isn't it cute?' makes me want to throw daggers. I want to say to them, 'My grandma did not fight for what she fought for just so you can start telling women it's fun to be stupid. Saying that to young women, little girls, my daughter? It's not OK'.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“I loved the beginning where we get to fight like cats and dogs. We had so much fun doing that! Well, I don't know if he enjoyed it as much as I did. I love having that antagonistic relationship in the beginning, and being equally as strong as each other and bullheaded. It kind of reminded me of a Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn-type movie.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“This one just had a really nice spiritual message about how important it is to nurture yourself. I think women are natural caretakers. They take care of everybody. They take care of their husbands and their kids and their dogs, and don't spend a lot of time just getting back and taking time out. So I like that quality and I like that sort of Wonderful Life quality where she gets to see her life for what it was and go back and have another opportunity.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“[And his leading lady echoes that observation.] American men don't want to do comedy that makes them look silly or less masculine, ... But he has no fear. He throws himself into things. In fact, he threw himself out of a second-story window one day. He had the stunt me put down mats so everyone would laugh hysterically.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“Just Like Heaven,”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“I'm definitely happy with the way my career has gone, the success; but I even feel glad that I've experienced some failure in my life. That gives you perspective and humility about this business; it's good to realize that you're always just one movie away from not being in Vogue anymore.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“And I liked all that debate and mock trial stuff in high school. It's important to know how to make your points.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“[Unlike Carter Cash, who was drafted into the family business at a young age, Ms. Witherspoon was a child model and actress by choice. Still, she knows how Carter Cash must have felt as a kid expected to comport herself like a pint-sized grown-up.] That becomes a big, weird part of a person's personality, ... You have to be very adult, businesslike, professional and then have a colorful and childlike personality when you're performing. It's definitely a formative experience.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“We make each other laugh and we have two beautiful children.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]

“He is who he is. He's not posturing or trying to look pretty or have great hair. He's just a real man and he's funny. There are a lot of actors who don't think funny is cool. So it's nice to see someone of his caliber doing comedy.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“Hey, don't put that glass on the table without a coaster. Haven't I taught you better?”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“There seems to be no repercussions for the behavior. It's starting to feel chaotic and lawless.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“I really like the idea that Mark appeals to so many people because he just is who he is. He's not posturing or trying to look pretty or have great hair. He's just a real man and he's funny. There's a lot of actors nowadays, American actors that don't think funny is cool, so it's nice to see someone of his caliber doing comedy.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“It's fun to do a comedy and hook people in and then hoodwink them into watching a serious movie, ... I like to lead in with the comedy and then hit them over the head with a drama.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“I do like the fact that fans think I'm a sweet girl. They'll run up to me and want to talk, but not about me. It's about them. They want to tell me their life stories or what they had for dinner last night ...”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“No one can sing like June Carter so I just tried to sing my very best,”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]

“When I signed on, I just signed on to do the acting part,”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“So then I said, 'I don't think I'm very good. I would really prefer if we just had somebody else do it or we used the original music.' ”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“It did not become an issue until he ... became aggressive, frightening members of the party.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
“This film is really important to me. It's about where I grew up, it's about the music I grew up listening to, so it's very meaningful.”More Reese Witherspoon [09/15/2006 12:09:00]
