Reese Witherspoon strikes a pose in Emporio Armani on the cover of Elle’s February issue.
Here’s what the 35-year-old This Means War actress had to share:
On how she met her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth: “It happened out of the blue. This really drunk guy was hitting on me [at a friend's house], making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me. He was like, [slurring, scowling, pointing finger in her face] ‘You don’t know me.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I know. I don’t know you!’ Jim came over and said, ‘Please excuse my friend. He’s just broken up with someone.’ Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That’s just kind of who he is, a really good person.”
On thinking she wouldn’t marry again: “Jim said, ‘I’m gonna show you every day what a good partner is, what a good person is. I’m going to take care of you. I’m gonna do this so much that you’re gonna get used to it.’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ I’ve never had anybody like that in my life.”
On aging: “Nothin’s going north. It’s all going south, might as well put in on film now. But not without a lot of padding and a push-up bra.”
