VIDEO: Reese Witherspoon: When I Realized I Was Becoming Like My Mother
The This Means War star dishes on parenting and why she decided to embrace her inner sexy action hero
As much as they try to avoid it, most women find a moment after they have kids when they realize they just might be turning into their mom. And for Reese Witherspoon, it was no different.
“It’s usually something while you’re parenting,” the star of This Means War (in theaters Feb. 17) tells iVillage exclusively. “A phrase slips out like, ‘Because I said so.’ And then you go, ‘Oh, that sounds like my mother.'”
The 35-year-old mom of two (she has Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8, from her marriage to Ryan Phillippe) also admits that she’s still struggling to find a balance between career and motherhood — even now that her kids are getting older. “At every age it’s a different set of difficulties. Certain things get easier, certain things get harder.”
Watch our exclusive video interview with the actress and her sexy costars, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, to find out the one thing Witherspoon’s new hubby, Jim Toth, did not do to woo her — and to hear why Pine says his favorite chick flick is Lady and the Tramp.
Reesse continued her talk show rounds last night, appearing on Conan promoting This Means War. Unfortunately I can’t find an embeddable version of the full interview yet, but I will keep looking! For now, below are a couple of clips from the interview.
I will add screencaps from the full interview in the coming days, so check back for them.

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon Has a Girl Crush on ‘Cute’ Rachel Bilson & ‘Lovable’ Jennifer Aniston
This Means War star Reese Witherspoon celebrated Valentine’s Day on the set of Conan last night. Getting in the spirit, Reese shared her celebrity crushes — girl crushes, that is!
“I have a girl crush on Rachel Bilson because I think she’s so cute,” Reese told Conan O’Brien on his show. “I also have a major girl crush on Jennifer Aniston. But, I mean, doesn’t everybody have a girl crush on Jennifer Aniston?”
“Dogs have crushes on Jeninfer Aniston,” Reese Joked. “There are dogs that are like, ‘I wish it were me in Marley & Me. She’s so cute.’ ”
But Reese’s crush shouldn’t come as a surprise. She recently revealed her crush while presenting Jen an award. “I played her younger sister on Friends mainly so I could meet Jennifer Aniston,” she explained. “She’s just so lovable and amazing.”
Reese also admitted she is in love with Pinterest!
“From what I can sort of see, it’s mainly for women and it’s mainly just a collection of the most amazing, wonderful craftiness on Earth!” she gushed.
Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, Chelsea Handler and director McG from ‘This Means War’ get downright foul-mouthed in the best way possible in this episode of Fanswers. Your questions got them very rowdy friends…and it makes us all the more excited to watch the movie!
USA Today have a fantastic new interview with Reese, Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and McG in which they talk all about the casting and filming of the movie. It’s a really good read so don’t miss it! Alongside the interview is a new photoshoot picture, most likely taken just before or after the LA premiere of the movie, based on the dress Reese is wearing in it.

Reese Witherspoon gets all kinds of action in ‘War’
This is one heck of a visual Valentine.
That’s what most moviegoers will likely think mere minutes into This Means War, as Bond-like CIA hunks Tom Hardy, 34, and Chris Pine, 31, spend an hour and a half battling (not quite to the death) for a sassy, svelte Reese Witherspoon, 35.
But back on the chilly Vancouver set, the cast says it was more of a battle of the wits. Especially with Chelsea Handler on hand playing Trish, Witherspoon’s best friend.
The bawdy Handler “never even stayed on the script, I didn’t even know what she was saying,” grins Witherspoon, who plays Lauren Scott, a consumer products watchdog.
Today at the Four Seasons hotel, Witherspoon is sandwiched between Hardy and Pine in a little black dress, kicking up her red-soled Louboutins as she talks. As Handler ad-libbed, “I would try not to laugh, but they’d usually put me off-screen so they couldn’t see my face. I was crying I was laughing so hard.”
The guys, whose characters spend most of War wooing Witherspoon, engaging in hand-to-hand-combat over her and pranking each other in her name, were always late to the best jokes.
