Reese Witherspoon is featured on this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly and in the adjoining interview she talks her divorce from Ryan Phillipe, Googling herself, and whether or not she’s getting married!
“It definitely sometimes feels like a suit that I wish I could zip off,” the Academy Award-winning actress tells the magazine (via JustJared.com) about her divorce. “But I don’t feel bad about any of the things I’ve gone through, whether it’s divorce or breakups or anything like that, because that’s all part of the life journey, and I have those experiences just like anyone else.”
Here are more excerpts from the interview:
On not dwelling on things:
“My favorite quote is from Martha Stewart: ‘I have a short memory for painful things.’ And I do. I have one of those incredible memories where I just erase painful things. Maybe that’s really unhealthy, and I probably need to see a therapist. But I don’t dwell. You just keep going forward. Also, I have kids. What are you going to do? Are you going to teach them to be one of those people who keep looking in the rearview mirror, or are you going to teach them to be one of those people who go, ‘Tomorrow’s another day’?”
On Googling herself:
“Oh, only in very, very dark moments–moments of pure self-loathing–do I type my name into Google. [Laughs] And I know what I’m in for. You never read anything positive-you always go straight to where you know they’re going to say something nasty about you.”
On all the wedding rumors:
“My mom always texts me, like, ‘Are you getting married?’ I’m like, ‘Mom, come on! You would know if I was getting married.'”
