In an interview for the January issue of Glamour magazine, Reese Witherspoon opens up about her children, relationships and why, at 34, she feels sexier than she ever did in her twenties.
“I think as a woman, you get older, you feel more confident in your sexuality,” The Oscar-winning actress said.
“You’re not as intimidated by it, not as embarrassed by it. Sexuality and femininity is an accumulation of age and wisdom and comfort in your own skin. I feel better—so much better now than I ever did in my twenties. I am calmer; I know who I am. And as a result, I feel much sexier.”
“There’s always going to be somebody younger or sexier. That’s why I like to say, and it’s become my famous line, ‘Funny doesn’t sag.”
Reese, who already has 25 movies to her name and is already lined up for another six next year, also made it clear in the frank interview what matters most to her: “I would love to have more kids. Kids are the best part of my day. I don’t wake up to make movies. I wake up to hang out with my family.”
Reese already has two children, Ava, 11, and Deacon, seven, from her seven-year marriage to actor Ryan Philippe.
Speaking about her divorce, she said: “I’m a very optimistic person, and I feel very lucky to have the chance to try again, you know.”
After the young couple separated, The walk the Line star became romantically involved with fellow actor Jake Gyllenhaal — who we recently reported is rumored to be dating 20-year-old Taylor Swift — and Reese is now dating Jim Toth, an agent at top Hollywood talent agency Creative Artist Agency.
“I don’t want to disparage any of the other relationships that I’ve had that were meaningful and wonderful,” Reese said.” But what I’m finding out is that it’s very comfortable to be with somebody who understands my career, but doesn’t do what I do. ”
“I’m really, really lucky. I’ve got a lot of love in my life,’ she added. “I’ve got great friends. I have two great kids whom I make pancakes for every Sunday. I’m very blessed.”
Glamour’s January issue featuring the ravishing, and indeed very sexy looking Reese Witherspoon, hits the newsstands on December 7.
