Reese Witherspoon, who is promoting her new movie, a action spy romantic comedy, â€œThis Means Warâ€, with Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, is elegant in a chiffon Dior dress on the cover of the upcoming issue of ELLE Magazine (February 2012)- see pictures below.
The 35 year-old talks about aging, her ridiculous earnings, her less-than-perfect life, but more importantly gushes about how good of a person her new husband, Jim Toth, is. Reese is in love.
Here are the highlights of Reese Witherspoonâ€™s ELLE interview:
On meeting husband, Jim Toth, at a friendâ€™s house: â€œIt happened out of the blue. This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me. He was like, [slurring, scowling, pointing finger in her face] â€˜You donâ€™t know me.â€™ And I was like, â€˜Yeah, I know. I donâ€™t know you!â€™ Jim came over and said, â€˜Please excuse my friend. Heâ€™s just broken up with someone.â€™ Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. Thatâ€™s just kind of who he is, a really good person.â€
On thinking she wouldnâ€™t marry again: â€œJim said, â€˜Iâ€™m gonna show you every day what a good partner is, what a good person is. Iâ€™m going to take care of you. Iâ€™m gonna do this so much that youâ€™re gonna get usedto it.â€™ I was like, â€˜What are you talking about?â€™ Iâ€™ve never had anybody like that in my life.â€
On aging in Hollywood: â€œNothinâ€™s going north. Itâ€™s all going south, might as well put in on film now. But not without a lot of padding and a push-up bra.â€
On earning a reported $15 to $20 million per film: â€œEvery time they call and talk to me about money, I get embarrassed about it. A couple of women finally made me feel better: â€˜To get what youâ€™re making, do you know how much money people are making off of you?â€™ Iâ€™m like, â€˜Oh, oh, okay.â€™â€
On living a less-than-perfect life: â€œI want to not perpetuate any more of this kind of garbage thatâ€™s out there in the media about women falling in love blindly. No oneâ€™s life is perfect, and Iâ€™m sick of whatever tabloid stuff or this or that story tries to portray. My life is just as realistic as everybody elseâ€™s. Whoever thinks someone has a perfect life, Iâ€™m so eager to dispel that.â€
