To celebrate their 25th anniversary, In Style have gathered several of their most famous cover stars from the past 25 years to each take a trip down memory lane and look back at their previous In Style covers. As well as talking us through their covers, the stars have been photographed for the current issue in a way that reflects their current selves. Reese tells us about her covers from 2002, 2004, 2009, 2015, 2016 & 2019, and for the latest photoshoot was snapped in May in New York City.

You can browse through all of the featurettes at InStyle.com. Read Reese’s article at InStyle.com or below, and find the photo in our Gallery. We’ll have scans for you asap.

Reese Witherspoon Doesn’t Want You to Worry

“In my early 20s I used to worry a lot. I was worried about being a good mom. I was worried about being a good actress. I worried about whether or not people respected me, or if I was kind enough. But in the end it all works out. Really!”

I was on my first InStyle cover in 2002, when I was 26. I had always been a fan of the magazine, so it was a big deal. Looking at that cover now, I can’t help but feel tender toward baby Reese and anyone else who’s going through that phase of life when they’re discovering who they are, especially in the public eye. I know what she’s about to go through and endure and triumph over, but she has no idea what’s to come, despite the fact that she does look all coy and knowing. I’m an actor: I might look like I know things sometimes, but I don’t.

Since then I’ve been on the cover of InStyle five more times. I guess you could say I’ve been swimming in the soup. It’s been a huge privilege and an honor. Sometimes I do cringe when I look back [at images of myself], but it’s only because I can’t believe I cut my hair or plucked my eyebrows a certain way. More than that, I usually just think about what a lovely way it is to remember milestones in my life, like finishing a project I was really proud of or having kids. It’s crazy how time flies, but I’ve learned so much about myself over the years. There’s a pretty good quote in my 2002 cover story where I said, “Listening to other people’s ideas about who you are can eat you up. Do they like me? Do they hate me? You could think about it all day long.” That’s something people say in their 20s. Once you’re in your 40s you don’t care what people think.



I came up in a time when Hollywood was about one body type, one beauty standard [blond hair and blue eyes]. Still, I was confident that the substance of what I had to say was more important than any external validation. I was always just being myself: a young mom, a comedian, a goofball. I’ve always been a goofball. I feel more comfortable making funny faces than serious faces, and even at 26, I wasn’t appearing on the covers of men’s magazines. That kind of hypersexualization made me feel awkward, and if I felt that way, I didn’t want to make other women feel that way.

Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon on all things Big Little Lies season 2, possible season 3

The second season finale of Big Little Lies — and that epic court battle between Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and her mother-in-law Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) — had fans sitting on the edge of their seats.

Now, Kidman and fellow BLL star/executive producer Reese Witherspoon talk with EW exclusively about that ending, the reports that have surfaced that season 2 director Andrea Arnold supposedly lost creative control to season 1 director Jean-Marc Vallée, and whether fans will be able to enjoy another season of the women from Monterey, Calif.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was it like to get everyone back for another season?
REESE WITHERSPOON: The collaboration was otherworldly, particularly having Meryl joining the cast. And then having audiences respond the way they do and love these characters and take them into their homes and hearts. That’s a big deal. That’s lightning in a bottle. I think Nicole and I frequently text each other and say, “Can you believe this is happening?”

NICOLE KIDMAN: Meryl in that cardigan, with those teeth and delivering that dialogue, I mean, that is such a unique character. I’ve never seen that on screen. That makes me happy. I’ve not seen that kind of strangely unique, woman-in-a-cardigan, wielding those verbal swords. It was sort of delicious. We’ve always said this show needs to be delicious. And hopefully it will still culturally penetrate. Obviously, so much of what we are grappling with is, “I believe you, I don’t believe you.” And to have a woman on the stand saying “I don’t believe you” with such vehemence to another woman, a momma to a momma, all of those things — for that to get lost is sad. We are trying to interweave all of these story lines, six women and their story lines, and having seven hours is still not really enough. We started to put our toe in the water with euthanasia; we started to deal with the cultural ideas of… once again there is a society that says “I don’t believe you; I believe you brought it upon yourself.” Those things are still very much in existence: “you caused someone to rape you,” “maybe you didn’t realize what you were doing,” “maybe actually it’s your fault that he wanted to hit you.” All of those things are very prevalent in this culture right now. To have them discussed and still in an entertaining way, and then to be dealing with the weight of a secret, how do you heal when you are still holding on to secrets? All of that is very complicated. Trying to deal with these complicated issues and have them still resonate with people in an entertaining way was something we were open for. Did we succeed or fail? Reese and I always say, “Hey, we are always going keep trying.”

How Reese Witherspoon went from A-list actor to bankable producer of Big Little Lies

Reese Witherspoon took control of her career as a teen and is still calling the shots as a producer of successful films and TV shows including Big Little Lies.

It pays not to underestimate Reese Witherspoon.

The Oscar-winning actor, mother of three and super producer of Foxtel’s Big Little Lies has been finding a way to go after what she wants since her teenage years.

Enrolled to study at prestigious Stanford University, the then 18-year-old was largely taking on college at the urging of her mother Betty.

Having played small roles in movies since the age of 14, Witherspoon had already set her heart on a career in showbiz, but was being thwarted by her more sensible mother determined her daughter would get a tertiary education.

That was until Hollywood kept calling.

“I called my mother and I said, ‘Mum, they want me to be in a movie and it pays more than my tuition.’ I could barely afford my tuition, so she was like, ‘OK, well as long as you promise to go back.’ I did the movie and then I got another movie. I called her and she was like, ‘It’s fine if you are doing it but as long as you go back to college’,” a routine conversation that would continue, Witherspoon explained, “until I bought her a house when I was 27 years old. Then she was fine!,” she laughed.

More than 40 movies later, Witherspoon is still calling the shots in her career — plotting her own course and creating her own opportunities with her production company, Hello Sunshine.

She would apply this same single-minded focus and determination when it came to her latest success story — co-producing HBO drama hit, Big Little Lies with Australia’s own Nicole Kidman.

Reese Witherspoon spills the beans on friendship with Big Little Lies co-star Nicole Kidman

Friends and business partners, Big Little Lies co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman share an intense and complex bond.

In an candid new interview with news.com.au, Witherspoon lifts the lid on their relationship, which — like that of so many female co-stars in Hollywood — has faced many a tabloid report of “secret feuding”.

“We’ve gotten along, we’ve had fights, and we’ve gotten over it,” explains Witherspoon.

The Oscar-winning actresses and producing partners clearly spend a lot of time together. “We’ve had every kind of experience together. We’ve been on vacation, we’ve worked together and we’ve disagreed about things, but I think that’s the beauty of having a real partnership with someone. Ours is a real friendship. It’s not a fake, phony Hollywood picture, you know? I really value that about our friendship.”

Prior to their collaboration as producers on Big Little Lies, they knew each other socially but became close friends once they started working together on the award-winning series, which is available to stream on Foxtel.

“Nicole and I were talking today about how fortunate we are to have each other through this (Big Little Lies) process. It’s the biggest success I’ve ever had with another woman, in my entire career, and hers. For me, to have that experience with her, to be in the trenches with her, it’s been everything.”

Both actresses are hands-on producers and were on-set much of the time.

Reese Witherspoon Reveals The Best Beauty Tip Her Mom Ever Gave Her

Reese Witherspoon owes her best beauty secrets to the women who raised her.

“I’ve learned so much from my mom to my grandma, and I think that it’s so great that I am able to pass it on to my daughter,” the “Big Little Lies” actress and Elizabeth Arden ambassador told Access exclusively at the brand’s garden party in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

May 2, 2019   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", "How Do You Know?", "The Morning Show", Articles & Interviews, Charity, Gallery Updates, Hello Sunshine, Media Alerts, News & Gossip, The Family, Times Up, Video UpdatesComments Off on Reese and “Big Little Lies” co-stars on the cover of In Style!

The 5 (original) ladies of Big Little Lies – Reese, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley – are gracing their own covers of the US edition of In Style magazine this month! Each lady has their own cover, and inside the magazine has a new interview and photoshoot with each of them. Reese talks about ambition, female leadership, and her friendships with her Big Little Lies co-stars, and the accompanying photoshoot is a throw-back to the 60’s!

The magazine hits news-stands on May 17th (2 weeks away!), but you can read the interviews below and find the photos in our Gallery:



The 5 Stars of Big Little Lies Have a Lot to Say — About Each Other

Guess which actress is the most “rigorous,” who’s a “ninja,” and who reliably keeps “old-lady candies” in her purse.

Big Little Lies is a Very Big Deal. It is an epic, insanely entertaining, tremendously acted hit. It features an ensemble of women, from longtime movie stars to burning younger talents who are each Big Deals on their own (oh, and coming up in Season 2, Meryl Streep). But it represents more than that. It is, frankly, a triumph for the ladies. BLL is great work done by great women, with respect and craft, the conscious sharing of opportunity, and, most significantly, very real friendships.

The lives of the cast — Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoë Kravitz — have overlapped in myriad ways. Nicole and Reese have a production partnership (Big Little Lies is their brainchild). Reese starred with Laura in Wild. Laura starred with Shailene in The Fault in Our Stars. Shailene starred with Zoë in Divergent. Nicole has known Zoë since she dated her father, Lenny Kravitz, 16 years ago. And so it goes. These women’s relationships run much deeper than “ensemble cast”; rather, they have influenced and enriched each other’s lives.

“I love watching myself age on screen!” Reese Witherspoon on shattering ageing taboos & why she will never try fasting

Reese Witherspoon has become a flag bearer for feminism and equal opportunities in Hollywood and we couldn’t be more here for her. As her career goes from strength to strength, her empire grows from producing films – that put women at the focal point – to a full lifestyle company with Hello Sunshine. And, we are ALL preparing for the return of Big Little Lies, aren’t we? Tight lipped on the events of series two, Reese simply coyly confides, “you better get excited – it’s good!”

If that wasn’t enough, she will also star alongside Jennifer Aniston in Apple TV Plus’s main show, The Morning Show – and she’s produced it too. Her formidable work in film makes Reese the perfect placement as Elizabeth Arden’s Storyteller-in-chief. Are you tired just reading this? This woman is BUS-AY!

Here Reese opens up about how we can further the conversation around beauty and feminism, her foil proof (AND FREE) beauty hack and why beauty is so important to her self-care rituals…

How do you use beauty to empower you?
I love lipstick – I always have a lot of lipstick in my purse. I really feel like a strong bold colour really pulls me together and helps me put my best face towards the world. I really like a strong red like the ‘Red Door’ tone from Elizabeth Arden. I am really enjoying the new Limited-Edition Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick in ‘Pink Punch’ this summer because pink is the new red (laughs!). It just makes me feel like I am ready to face the day. I feel like it finishes a great outfit, just like a great accessory.

A lot of beauty interviews with female celebrities can be quite sexist and reductive. How do you think we can further the conversation around beauty and feminism?
First of all, I want to acknowledge that this is a great question! There has been such an elevation about the way we talk about women and beauty, but we can always go further. For so many years, as young women growing up, we were just presented with one beauty standard. Now it’s so empowering for women to see themselves represented in beauty campaigns, Instagram and influencers who have all kinds of backgrounds. There’s a lot of body positivity messaging, too. I am particularly love Jameela Jamil who is addressing the way we talk to women in advertising and the importance of really seeing beauty as a universal thing, that is accessible to many with broader messaging.

April 18, 2019   •  Category: Articles & Interviews, Elizabeth ArdenComments Off on Allure interview: Reese Witherspoon Explains Why She’s Proud of Her Gray Hair and Fine Lines

Pick up a copy of the May issue of Allure magazine for the full version of this interview:

Reese Witherspoon Explains Why She’s Proud of Her Gray Hair and Fine Lines

The Hollywood powerhouse serves up some big little truths — on aging, self-involvement, and the beauty ritual that changed her life.

Reese Witherspoon is one of those famous people who serves as a pop culture benchmark for anyone watching movies in the last 20-or-so years. Just like there’s a Spice Girl for everyone, there is a Reese Witherspoon for everyone (or at least for most relatable stages in your life) — naive heroine Annette in Cruel Intentions, the plucky and determined Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, a triumphant June Carter in Walk The Line, and of course, the indomitable Madeline Mackenzie in Big Little Lies. The Academy Award-winning actress has lived many lives, but in all of them her beauty journey has evolved to become the Reese Witherspoon who gave Allure’s beauty director this 15-minute interview, beginning here.

The best beauty tutorial
“My makeup artist, Molly R. Stern, taught me how to put on fake eyelashes. She hates that I put on a full strip, but I’m from the South — I love a good ol’-fashioned drugstore strip lash. I pop it on, put a little liquid liner over it, and I feel like my eyes look more open. I made a mess the first time, but then Molly showed me how to make it better. Always put liquid eyeliner over it.”

Her biggest beauty regret
“In the ’90s, we plucked our brows really thin. I said “we” — at least I did. And it just looked awful. Thank God, they grew back, but, I mean, who knows what they might look like now if I hadn’t plucked them into oblivion! ”

The never-again lipstick color
“Brown. Like, dark brown. It looked terrible, and it was immortalized on my driver’s license photo when I was 16 years old.”
