June 12, 2009   •  Category: "Monsters Vs. Aliens", Career, News & Gossip, The FamilyComments Off on Reese Witherspoon Swears Off Raunchy Roles

She’s an Oscar-winning actress and one of Hollywood’s hottest stars — but even Reese Witherspoon’s children, 9-year-old daughter Ava & 6-year-old-son Deacon, are surprisingly “embarrassed” of their uber-famous mom.

“My children are embarrassed at me all the time. They’re like ‘mom you’re being really stupid’,”Witherspoon told us in a recent interview. “When ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’ came out Ava told me I’m the coolest mom in the third grade. I said ‘can you put it on a piece of paper and sign it for me please’. I was cool once.”

And as cool and yet hot as the majority of men (and women) think Witherspoon is, she won’t be baring too much for the lights and camera.

“I had my first baby when I was 23, so for me, no. I’ve always been choosing roles knowing that I have a daughter and I have a responsibility to her and to the world to be representing women of strength,” the 33-year-old added. “These are the women I know in life. I think it’s a natural extension of parenthood for you to feel like you’re responsible for the worlds you create, whether they be silly or serious. I think you are responsible for the art you put in the world.”

While these are certainly inspiring words of wisdom, don’t be fooled — this mama was more than happy to embrace her childhood habits while lending her voice to “Monsters vs. Aliens”.

“It’s definitely not hard. It’s like you go in and it’s about how imaginative you can be. For me, that’s just a fantastic opportunity to be free and act like a 5-year-old,” Witherspoon added. “We just go in the sound booth and be silly and eat candy and drink caffeine and bounce off the walls. The older I get the more I regress. I really have just become very silly.”

Reese Witherspoon’s son wanted to kill things after watching her new movie.

The blonde actress was amazed when a trip to see Monsters vs Aliens – in which she voices the character of Susan, a woman who swells to 42 ft 11 ins tall and then helps save the planet from an alien invasion – brought out Deacon’s violent tendencies.

Reese – who has nine-year-old daughter Ava and five-year-old son Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe – told BANG Showbiz: “I took my kids to see it a couple of week’s ago. As I was driving home from the theater I said to my children in the back seat, ‘So, what do you think is the message in this movie?’ My daughter really thoughtfully said, ‘I think it’s about never letting someone underestimate you and always living up to your true potential.’ I said, ‘That is so astute, yes, Ava, that is exactly what the message is.’

March 12, 2009   •  Category: "Monsters Vs. Aliens", Articles & Interviews, The FamilyComments Off on Reese on Her Action-Girl Future

Reese Witherspoon could soon be seen high-kicking her way through an action film.

The Legally Blonde star – who has so far stuck mainly to the romantic comedy and drama genres – is voicing the part of Ginormica, a superhero/monster in new 3D animation Monsters Vs Aliens, and it’s made her think about doing something similar in real-life.

“It might be fun, it actually has gotten me excited. I have never been in an action film before so the last third of this movie is so action-packed, it made me very excited. I think maybe I could do that,” she said.

Even Reese Witherspoon finds it difficult to globe-trot at her leisure.

“It’s hard to travel when you have two small children,” she says. But her work as Avon’s global ambassador has taken her around the world in the fight against domestic violence and breast cancer and for emergency-relief fundraising.

A two-day summit on women’s issues brought Witherspoon to the nation’s capital on Tuesday, where she unveiled Avon’s latest fundraising initiative: the empowerment necklace. The small silver chain is an offshoot of last year’s empowerment bracelet, which helped raise $4 million for the Avon Women’s Empowerment Fund.

February 12, 2009   •  Category: Articles & Interviews, Media Alerts, The FamilyComments Off on Even Reese Witherspoon Can Be an Embarrassing Mom

She might be an Oscar-winning actress but to her two kids, Reese Witherspoon is sometimes, well, just embarrassing, she says in a new interview.

To illustrate her point, the actress tells the story to Parents magazine of taking her 9-year-old daughter Ava to see country star Carrie Underwood.

“She said, ‘Mom I really appreciate you taking me to the concert, but will you please not embarrass me in front of Carrie Underwood by singing because she’s a real singer and you’re just, like a movie singer,” says Witherspoon, who won a Best Actress Oscar for playing singer June Carter Cash in 2005’s Walk the Line.

February 6, 2009   •  Category: Articles & Interviews, Media Alerts, The FamilyComments Off on Redbook: Reese Witherspoon on Movies and Motherhood

Reese is inside Redbook magazine’s March 2009 issue. Here is a some of the article via their website.

Reese Witherspoon on Movies and Motherhood
The manners and morals of a movie-star mom

I’m not a super-strict parent, but I think it’s important to have rules for children. It gives them a sense of structure — and that’s what we are all seeking. We just want to know when we’ve done something right or wrong. That’s what I’m trying to teach my own children [Ava, nine, and Deacon, five].

I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, and my parents taught me to respect my elders. We’d say things like “yes, ma’am” and “no, sir” to adults. But kids in Los Angeles don’t do that. I’ve drawn the line at my children calling adults by their first names. I tell them they can call people “Miss Shannon” or “Miss Heather” but that using only the first name is too familiar. Maybe I’m just old-fashioned.

Reese was just on Good Morning America. I have added caps from the interview and the clip may be streamed after the cut.

The showed some new scenes from Four Christmases, and Reese laughed it up as she discussed filming with Vince Vaughn. She also discussed how she’ll spend the holidays stating that lots of cooking and caroling is a staple for her family’s traditions. She said one of the reasons she wanted to take part in Christmases was because while she wasn’t a child of divorce her children are and wanted to see it from other’s eyes and about it. It was a good little interview and I’m sure you will enjoy it!

November 24, 2008   •  Category: "Four Christmases", Articles & Interviews, Gallery Updates, News & Gossip, The FamilyComments Off on Reese tells USA Today: “I want someone to build me a good chicken coop.”

Reese Witherspoon tell USA Today, all she wants for Christmas is a new chicken coop!

The Oscar-winning actress and star of the upcoming Four Christmases says she’ll stick to family tradition this holiday: a big Southern-style dinner and caroling around the tree. On Christmas Eve, she’ll go to church and watch the annual pageant where her children, Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5, will perform.

But after Santa has arrived and the last bites of Witherspoon’s home-cooked specialties (turnip greens, pecan-coated sweet potatoes and sugar-baked ham) have been eaten, the actress says she’ll retreat to the farm she owns outside Los Angeles.

“We feed the chickens and the pigs — I have two pigs, and boy are they really pigs. They just get down in that mud and roll around,” she says, painting a picture in stark contrast to her neatly pressed Derek Lam dress. “I like getting down in there and working in the garden. Oh, I want someone to build me a good chicken coop … like a man who can just get down there and build it … ooh.”
