Reese Witherspoon: “My Family Comes First”


Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon covers Glamour‘s “Women of the Year” issue and opens up about family life with husband Jim Toth and her three children: daughter Ava, 16, and sons Deacon, 12, and Tennessee, 3.

On her priorities: “My family comes first. I haven’t made a movie probably in a year and a half. I’m focusing on my business, but also I want to spend time with my teenage daughter. It’s terrifying that my oldest child is about to leave. I can’t imagine not sitting at the foot of her bed, saying, ‘So what happened at school today?’ “

On raising a healthy teen: “Look, you do the best you can. But it’s hard. When I find things egregiously misrepresentative of women, I’ll make a point to say to my son, “Turn that off. I don’t want to see women behave that way. And I don’t want to see men treat those women that way.” You hope you’re saying the right things—but also, as a kid becomes a teenager, you feel like there’s a ticking clock for you to tell them everything they need to know. 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.”

On her ‘village’: “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.”

On her hit movie Legally Blonde: “I was debating whether to do Legally Blonde, and I saw this interview with Gloria Steinem about how important Goldie Hawn’s role in Private Benjamin was for women; by the end of the movie, the character socked her fiancé in the face at the altar because he didn’t understand who she’d become through her journey. I was like, “I feel like Gloria Steinem told me to do Legally Blonde. That’s how Elle Woods is too!” She starts out thinking she’s gonna follow a man, but in the end she’s like, “I don’t need you.”

Sandra Bullock: ‘My Son Understands What Racism Means’

*EXCLUSIVE* Sandra Bullock and little Louis catch 'The Lego Movie' together

When it comes to discussing tough topics, single mom Sandra Bullock keeps the conversations open with son Louis.

In a new interview with BET, the Our Brand Is Crisis star, 51, revealed that she is “absolutely” already talking to her 5-year-old about racism.

“It’s an open conversation we have. He fully understands what that means,” the Academy Award-winning actress said of her son’s knowledge of racism. “He doesn’t understand why people judge each other based on color of their skin, but he knows they do. He also knows there’s sexism, he knows that there’s homophobia.”

While it can be a cruel world, the actress understands that she needs to prepare her son.

“I want him to know the truth, but I also want him to know the good in the world as well,” she said. “Those are hard conversations to have. It’s not any conversation any parent wants to have with their child, is that you’ll be judged by the color of your skin rather than the content of your character. But it exists, and I want him to be safe and I want him to be aware.”

She added: “I think if you don’t start the conversation early on, you’re doing them a disservice. Once he leaves that house and I’m not with him, it’s his life and how he approaches it is his decision. But I want to know that I did the best I could as his mom to educate him on the ugliness in the world, and also the beauty.”

Reese Witherspoon Stops By Her Office With Ava

Girls’ day out!

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon stepped out with lookalike daughter Ava, nearly 16, in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Friday (August 14). The stylish duo were seen leaving Reese’s office together.

In a recent Instagram image, the Wild actress, 39, is seen barefoot with her teen aboard a yacht.

“Excuse me! Can we catch a ride back to the beach?” the mom-of-three captioned the fun photo.

Also mom to sons Deacon, 11, and Tennessee, nearly 3, the Oscar winner recently opened up about balancing work and motherhood.

“No, and no one’s really doing it perfectly,” Reese said of parenting. “I think you love your kids with your whole heart, and you do the best you possibly can. But, you know, right now I’m feeling sad missing my little 2-year-old, and my daughter’s about to finish her freshman year of high school, and my son has a golf tournament this weekend that I hope I don’t miss. There are some sacrifices you make, and it hurts your heart sometimes, but my kids tell me they’re proud of what I’ve accomplished, and that just means everything. I grew up with a working mom, and I have so much respect for the things she did as a nurse and a teacher. I would never begrudge her that.”

Excuse me! Can we catch a ride back to the beach?

Blake Lively: ‘Breastfeeding Is A Full-Time Job’


New mom Blake Lively covers the May issue of Allure and opens up about family life with husband Ryan Reynolds and their 3-month-old daughter James.

On how motherhood has changed her: “I feel like I’ve figured out the most important thing to me. And everything supports that… And also, having a child makes you realize that we pass on for a reason. You think, ‘I have to go, because it makes room for you.’”

On breastfeeding: “[It’s] a full-time job. I’m, like, driving down the road, pumping.”

On her baby bump reveal on Preserve: “My brother took that photo—he’s an amazing photographer. That moment was really neat, and I was scared to take that picture because I’m very private. I had a feeling that we weren’t going to get away with our privacy for a while. That was my way of owning that moment. I can’t be someone like Beyoncé and be like— [her 2011 VMAs announcement],” she joked. “But it was important for us. It was a struggle, because we want to keep our privacy, but we also don’t want our lives to be exploited by other people. So we did it simply; it was a quiet way, an elegant way.”

On the concept of “having it all”: “Most of the things I do are all-consuming, but somehow I find a way to do it all. It’s not having it all; it’s about doing it all, but it’s dangerous to dilute that to a catchphrase. Having it all could be having a happy, healthy family, and you could be a mom who stays at home, and that is the most admirable thing you could do. Or it could be having a profession that you really believe in, and not having a family, and doing what fulfills you… If it’s not a part of a conversation with someone face-to-face, those bites are why women tear each other apart or why the media will tear people apart…But I look at the big picture,” Lively says, noting that her career has provided her with extra advantages. “Most women don’t get that. There’s a lot of pressure on women to be a certain thing, and there are compromises you have to make. You don’t get to be with your family all the time; most women don’t.”
