Reese Witherspoon Quotes

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Children

I take the kids to church and Sunday school. They love it. I really think it’s important for a child to feel that there are things that are bigger than your life out there.

I feel very blessed to have two wonderful, healthy children who keep me completely grounded, sane and throw up on my shoes just before I go to an awards show just so I know to keep it real.

Whether it was making my bed or making a movie, my mother and father never hesitated to say how proud they were of me, and that means so very much to a child.

I'd always ask my grandma,

I’d always ask my grandma, who was so, so smart, why she didn’t work, and she would explain that her parents didn’t approve of her working after she had children. She didn’t feel like she had choices.

One hundred percent my mother, who would always say, “If you want something done, do it yourself.” She must have said that 100 times to me – as a child, as a young woman, yesterday on the phone.

Men rise through the ranks because of potential, but women have to prove themselves – while trying to have children and having no family leave.

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Fashion

Costumes, fashion, it’s all an expression of self, and the more you push the boundaries – the more that people work at creating alternative ideas – the more it changes people’s ideas of beauty.

I don’t want to discount the beautiful work that the fashion houses do, but somehow, just focusing on what you’re wearing feels reductive.

I didn’t really understand fashion until I started going to Paris and seeing the ateliers and how hard these people work. It’s art.

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Film

As an artist, I feel more

As an artist, I feel more strongly than ever that my job on earth is to tell the stories of the invisibles, and women have been invisible on film for a long time.

But with the right kind of coaching and determination you can accomplish anything and the biggest accomplishment that I feel I got from the film was overcoming that fear.

That said, I’d love to do a musical, either in film or on stage.

Exploring female rage on film doesn’t frighten me – it might frighten a lot of people in my business, but, gosh, I know a lot about that, from personal experience and friends’ experiences.

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Giving

Obviously, this isn’t the time in my life that I would have chosen to do this, but I feel like life gives you these challenges for a reason. I feel so happy and glad to be in the place that I am. I really feel blessed. This is something I need to face and take control of.

Doing begets more doing. It sounds simple, but I’m a firm believer that action can solve so many worries, and just powering through, no matter what, can give you the confidence you need when you feel like you’ve got nothing to offer.

There’s no bad consequence to loving fully, comma with all your heart. You always gain by giving love.

And I want to say that my grandmother was one of the biggest inspirations in my life. She taught me how to be a real woman, to have strength and self-respect, and to never give those things away.

Your body is just a vessel for who you are as a person. And until you work on what you give back to the world, it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside.

I traveled all over the South looking for factories – to keep production in the South. I wanted to give back to the place and people that raised me.

We need to give artists

We need to give artists a lot of free room to create.

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Husband

It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.

I think women are natural caretakers. They take care of everybody. They take care of their husbands and their kids and their dogs, and don’t spend a lot of time just getting back and taking time out.

That said, my kids are at home right now with my husband and I’m missing something important at my daughter’s school which makes me feel sick inside. It’s a lot of balance and a lot of really hard decision making.

My husband is my biggest supporter on earth. He encourages me to put myself out in the world in ways that feel scary, and he’s like, “I’m always gonna catch you. I’m always gonna be there for you.” My supportive mother and family. Honey, it’s such a village.

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Jurney

I think movies are great and I have a great time making them but they’re not what keeps you warm at night, or what’s ultimately the most important thing in anyone’s life journey.

I thought I knew everything

I thought I knew everything about love and relationships in my 20s, the ignorance of youth is bliss. As you get older, you start to realise that you don’t really know anything and life is a great traveling journey. Life is unexpected…you just never know whats going to happen.

I like my body so much better after I had kids. Is that a crazy thing to say? I’m more womanly. I feel sexier.

Whether it was making my bed or making a movie, my mother and father never hesitated to say how proud they were of me, and that means so very much to a child.

That said, my kids are at home right now with my husband and I’m missing something important at my daughter’s school which makes me feel sick inside. It’s a lot of balance and a lot of really hard decision making.

One hundred percent my mother, who would always say, “If you want something done, do it yourself.” She must have said that 100 times to me – as a child, as a young woman, yesterday on the phone.

My husband is my biggest supporter on earth. He encourages me to put myself out in the world in ways that feel scary, and he’s like, “I’m always gonna catch you. I’m always gonna be there for you.” My supportive mother and family. Honey, it’s such a village.

Women are wives and mothers and girlfriends, but not the center of our own stories. No one’s the good guy; no one’s the bad guy. We all do deplorable things and very honorable things.

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Love

I take the kids to church

I take the kids to church and Sunday school. They love it. I really think it’s important for a child to feel that there are things that are bigger than your life out there.

I love to cook comfort food. I’ll make fish and vegetables or meat and vegetables and potatoes or rice. The ritual of it is fun for me, and the creativity of it.

That said, I’d love to do a musical, either in film or on stage.

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Mom

I like my body so much better after I had kids. Is that a crazy thing to say? I’m more womanly. I feel sexier.

I was all of these women. I’ve been a young mom; I’ve been a divorcée; I’ve been a single mom. I’ve been the working mom versus the nonworking mom.

Realizing you’re not anything special to the kids is always a great sort of reminder that you’re just a regular person. A regular, embarrassing old mom.

My kids make me laugh every day. And they’re so supportive. As I get older, they understand those things I worried about – the guilt of being gone – in a way that’s so healing for me, when they say, “Mom, we know you love what you do. We love to watch you do what you do.”

Reese Witherspoon Quotes On Parent

I don’t think I realised how stressed I was, being a single parent. It was really, really stressful. It’s not easy on anybody.
