Reese chats about the pressures of the red carpet and the travesty of the media’s focus on what actresses wear on the red carpet at award ceremonies, rather than their performances. She also talks about her kids perceptions of what she does, and what she loves most about life at the moment…

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon likens bond with Chelsea Handler to a ‘giraffe and turtle’
Reese Witherspoon plays a woman wedged in a love triangle between two CIA agents and best friends, played by Tom Hardy and Chris Pine, in the action/romance Valentine’s Day comedy “This Means War.”
But it’s her on-screen and off-screen friendship with co-star Chelsea Handler that has everyone raising eyebrows.
Even the typically sweet actress is confused about how she became so close to the potty-mouthed late night comedian.
“We’re the most unlikely friends – like on ‘Animal Planet’ where the giraffe and turtle make friends,” Witherspoon told Fox411’s Pop tarts column regarding her Handler friendship. “That’s us.”
The Oscar-winning actress, who last year tied the knot for the second time with Hollywood agent Jim Toth, also said she knows precisely what characteristics a man requires to keep her happy.
“Great character, loyal and honest,” she declared.
And if Witherspoon, who won her Oscar for her moving portrayal of country music legend June Carter, was ever to stand before Jennifer Lopez on “American Idol” – she already knows what tune she would belt.
“’Angel from Montgomery,’ the John Prine song,” she quipped.
Oscar winning star Reese Witherspoon sits down with the MediaJor (Jorge Carreon) to dish about the joys of making her first real action pic, “This Means War,” the importance of having the counsel of good friends and why Cheetohs will forever remind her of pal/co-star Chelsea Handler.
Australian tv show The Project aired an interview with Reese today to promote This Means War, and the video is now online. It was an interesting interview, in which Reese talked about how the movie is about women taking their power back, why Chelsea Handler is such a good friend, and the differences between Tom and Chris. Watch it below, and check the Gallery for screencaps very soon…

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.

“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.
