In the June issue of Red magazine, cover star Reese Witherspoon reveals the impact baby Tennessee has had on her life, how wonderful it is to have great girlfriends, and the need to celebrate every success.
The Hollywood star is candid about the stresses and strains of running a large family, “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. It’s like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times [puts on robotic voice]: ‘Where is Ava? She’s okay. Good. Where is Deacon? He’s okay. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he okay? Yes. Great. Back to Ava...’ It doesn’t stop.”
Speaking of friendships Witherspoon counts Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore as her true bosom buddies, "They’re 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.”
As for her career successes, the actress is relaxed enough about her achievements to place her academy award in the living room. "Because Lord knows every day is not a success, every year is not a success. You have to celebrate the good." Here, here. Witherspoon's recent lapse of judgement has been widely documented but we look forward to reading the full interview in the June issue on sale May 1. You go girl. (Red)
