Reese Witherspoon says “chasing boys” is good fun, especially when you’re young.
The 34-year-old actress has previously romanced film star Jake Gyllenhaal and was married to actor Ryan Phillippe with whom she has two children; Ava, 11, and Deacon, seven.
Reese is currently dating Hollywood agent Jim Toth, and admits she has become wiser about romance as she has grown older. The beauty thinks flirting and pursuing potential suitors can be really enjoyable, and shouldn’t be taken too seriously during a person’s young, free and single days.
“Because boy is it fun, chasing boys – especially when you’re young,” she laughed.
Reese recalled a moment when one of her pals explained to her how essential it is to realise when a man is attracted to you. The friend warned Reese it’s far more important to consider men who are chasing you, rather than wasting efforts on those who aren’t interested.
“You know, don’t follow the guy you’re chasing, look at the guy who’s chasing you. I think that takes time, and sort of life experience to notice,” explained Reese.
The full quote from showbizspy:
“I have a girlfriend who said something really smart to me the other day,” explains Reese. “She was telling me a story about how she would like go to the same coffee shop, and she was really into the guy making the coffee.
“He was this cool guy in a band and she always wanted to go out with him, but she never noticed that the guy giving her coffee every day was totally in love with her! So she said, it’s important to look at the guy.
“You know, don’t follow the guy you’re chasing, look at the guy who’s chasing you. I think that takes time, and sort of life experience to notice. Because boy is it fun, chasing boys — especially when you’re young.”
