Reese appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show With Nick Grimshaw to promote Home Again this morning. They also chatted about Reese’s daughter and English slang, and Big Little Lies and the Emmys. Below are a couple of clips, and you can listen to the full interview here (Reese comes in at about 1hr 40mins):

Reese Witherspoon: Viewers don’t want to be force-fed a fantasy

Reese Witherspoon says Hollywood rom-coms have changed hugely in recent years and now show a more realistic portrayal of relationships on screen.

She joined Nick Grimshaw on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show to chat about her new movie Home Again (“I call it a divorce comedy, which doesn’t sound funny at all,” said Reese) and believes it’s a far cry from the ‘fantasy’ the rom-com genre once portrayed to women.

“Rom-coms 15 years ago were fantasy based and it’s ridiculous,” Reese told Nick.

“This one is a little more modern, it’s about messiness and how messy life is.

“I think people want to see real stuff and real dynamics. They don’t want to be force-fed a fantasy where you meet a guy and your life is perfect.”

Reese stars as mum of two Alice Kinney in Home Again, who separates from her husband and starts a relationship with a younger man, leading to dilemmas, questions and one or two laugh out loud moments along the way.

But despite visiting Radio 1 to promote a movie that’s heading to the cinema, Reese says she’s more into binge-watching on the sofa than making a trip to the IMAX – especially since scoring a huge hit with TV smash, Big Little Lies.

“TV is better I think, the roles are better and I love streaming things,” she revealed.

“I’d much rather sit at home and watch stuff. You can eat nachos and binge.”

When it does come to watching things at home, there’s only one thing you can guarantee Reese Witherspoon won’t be watching at home; Reese Witherspoon movies.

“I don’t entertain myself. I watch myself and I just cringe,” she said.

“I roll up in a ball and I think ‘Why did I do that?’ It helps that my children won’t watch anything I’m in.

“I don’t find myself entertaining; I like to be entertained by other people. I get joy from other places. I like Jennifer Aniston movies, Cameron Diaz movies, Sandra Bullock movies.”
