Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon reveals make-up bag stash
Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she keeps spare make-up supplies in her car, house and handbag.
The actress said that she can’t stand to be without her war-paint and told Glamour magazine that she tries to make sure that she can always get her hands on her foundation and mascara.
‘I have a bunch of different make-up bags – one in my car, one in my handbag and one at home,’ she confessed.
‘I try to keep them small, but I have about five lip glosses, mascara, cover-up, lipstick and blush.’
The 34-year-old added that she has started paying more attention to her skin care now that she is getting older.
‘I’ve always used moisturiser and SPF, but as you get older you really have to take care of your skin – you must take off your make-up and put on your moisturiser,’ she said.
Reese Witherspoon spends every birthday in the spa.
The 34-year-old actress – who has two children, Ava, 11, and Deacon, seven, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe – marks her special day in the same way every year, relaxing with a close friend and indulging in her favourite treats.
She said: “Every year on my birthday, I go with my best girlfriend to a spa, get facials and massages, drink Champagne, and eat cake.
“We’re both moms, so to take four hours out of the day to gossip and catch up is really fun.”
Though Reese takes care of her appearance, she admits she still falls foul of the occasional beauty disaster.
In an interview with the British edition of Glamour magazine, she explained: “I recently dyed my eyebrows for a movie, so I have to pencil them in. It’s a pain, but they look funny if I don’t. Don’t ever dye your eyebrows.”
As well as disliking what her role in ‘Water For Elephants’ did to her eyebrows, Reese is also recovering from the impact her work has had on her hair.
She said: “I’m enjoying having longer hair again. I cut and dyed it white over the summer for a movie, so I’m taking vitamins and willing it to grow.”

Comments Off on ‘Speak out to your partner so he respects you’-Reese Witherspoon
HOW DO you raise strong and confident daughters and sons respectful to women? By talking to them, according to actress Reese Witherspoon.
“It’s important to instill in them the idea that it’s very important to respect women, and for a woman to speak out to her partner [so that he] respects you,” Witherspoon said, speaking via phone patch from Atlanta, Georgia, on Tuesday.
The Oscar-winning actress was at the kick-off of the 16-city “Avon Believe World Tour,” a global effort underscoring the company’s heritage of empowering women. The event jumpstarted Avon’s 125th anniversary celebration.
Since 2007, Witherspoon has been Avon’s global ambassador and honorary chair of Avon Foundation, a charity that supports women, with special focus on breast cancer awareness and prevention of domestic violence.
“One of the main points we talk about at the Avon Foundation is education, talking about things,” she noted. “It’s important to begin speaking about these issues with your children before they’re in that age where they start to leave home and want to hang out with their peers. The best thing you can do as a mother is to talk to your kids about these issues, hopefully before they come up in their lives.”

We can all enjoy the photos though.
These scans were made exclusively for Glamour Reese Witherspoon, so please do not re-post them on other sites/forums/tumblrs etc.. Thanks!
In movie news, How Do You Know hits cinemas in the UK today! If you have a chance make sure you go and see it. I saw it today and I enjoyed it – it’s not my favourite movie of Reese’s, but it was a different kind of role for her which she played really well, and I loved seeing her alongside Paul Rudd again!

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon: I am over-achiever
(I’m pretty sure these are old quotes, but it can’t help to be reminded of Reese’s wonderful down-to-earth-ness!)
Reese Witherspoon has confessed she has a “little bit of that over-achiever syndrome”.
The 34-year-old star has had a hugely successful Hollywood career so far, appearing in hit films such as Cruel Intentions, Legally Blonde and Walk the Line. She also has her own production company called Type A Productions, and admits the name stems from her desire to push herself and be the best she can be.
“It’s a childhood nickname. My mother used to call me Little Miss Type A,” she replied when Total Film asked how she acquired the name for the business.
“I like to be organised, I like to push myself. I probably do have a little bit of that over-achiever syndrome.”
As well as being a successful film actress and producer, Reese is also a devoted mother to 11-year-old daughter Ava and seven-year-old son Deacon, her children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. The star believes she has instilled good manners in her children, something she considers fundamental in life.
“I’m strict with my kids, too. I believe in ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’ and being kind and respecting your elders. I make them write thank you notes. It’s important. Those things were instilled in me and have really been helpful in my life,” added the actress.

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon admits she isn’t perfect

When asked if she considers herself to have flaws, she replied: “How long do you have? It’s a long list. Shall I go alphabetically? A, annoying. B, belligerent… Yeah, I have a lot of flaws. There are a parts of myself I could do without.”
One of the things the 34-year-old beauty admits is a flaw is her inability to stop over thinking things, though she has learned to calm herself through exercise.
She explained to Total Film magazine: “I ruminate a lot. I’m always in my head, thinking and thinking. Sometimes that can be counterproductive, so when I do put on my running shoes and go run it helps.”
Despite admitting her constant thinking can be frustrating, the ‘How Do You Know’ actress it can be advantageous for helping her come up with ideas for her production company, Type A.
She added: “I’m kind of a daydreamer. I’ll come up with an idea and then I talk to my producing partners and we try and find the right writers or directors who are interested in doing the material.”

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon Says She’s ‘Really Thrifty’
Reese Witherspoon may be an Oscar-winner, but she insists her worldwide success hasn’t made her extravagant. Instead, she has kept the principles of her frugal upbringing in New Orleans, Louisiana.
She explained: “I’m pretty good with money. I’m really thrifty. I grew up in a really thrifty family so i don’t spend a lot of money on things that are frivolous.
“I have a house, two cars, I have a regular life.”
While she says she leads a “regular life,” 34-year-old Reese — who recently announced her engagement to Hollywood agent Jim Toth — recently splashed out on a barn for the pets she keeps with her children.
She said: “I’m building a barn. I think it’s cool. I really do have animal friends, I have donkeys, I have goats, I have pigs.
“I wanted the donkeys to be called Honky Tonk and Badonkadonk but the kids weren’t so into it.
“Do I milk them? No. The goats are kind of worthless. They’re pretty nasty and don’t do anything. But I have chickens and they provide eggs.”
