Reese Witherspoon is relaxed and sexy on the cover of Red Magazine’s June 2013 issue as photographed by Simon Carter. Inside Reese talks, friendships, feminism, pinterest, family and success.
On women putting themselves down: “As women, we shrug and smile and say, ‘Oh…me?’ because it makes it socially acceptable for us to be successful. But there is a balance between being an arrogant jerk and being someone who is proud of their accomplishments. We need to let successful women show off and support them. Because men don’t spend any time putting themselves down. They don’t waste their breath. You have to be the best version of yourself and, if that means you have to be a bit self-promoting, then it’s okay. It really is. Because who’s going to believe in you more than yourself? Other than, maybe, your mother.”
On losing her mind after giving birth to baby Tennessee: “Ever since I had the baby, I can’t remember anything. Serious, this child stole my brain. I’m losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. But you can’t keep up with everything. I’ve got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby.”
On her obsession with Pinterest: “My husband [Jim Toth] says; “Are you buying those things?’ and I’m like, “No, I’m just putting pictures of them on my electronic pinboard.’ Then I get to organize them: So this is my dream kitchen, these are my favorite hand bags, these are hotels I want to visit, jewelry I really need to buy… I have a whole board of monogrammed accessories, I like to my name on everything.”
The importance of girl friends (Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore): “Oh my gosh, I don’t know what I would have done so many times in my life if I hadn’t had my girlfriends. They have literally gotten me up out of bed, taken my clothes off, put me in the shower, dressed me, and said, ‘Hey, you can do this,’ put my high heels on and pushed me out the door! But you do have to work at friendships as much as you would any relationship. So, even when I’m really busy, we always manage to find each other on Saturday nights for a drink.” “They’re [Cameron & Drew] just as charismatic and fun as you would imagine. It’s nice to hang with Drew because we both just had babies and we can support each other. And Cameron is such a funny, bright gal. She’s an incredibly sharp business-minded woman, but she disguises that side of herself. It’s her secret alter ego.”
