Popular American actress Reese Witherspoon strikes a pose in Emporio Armani on the cover of Elle’s February issue. Reese opened up about meeting her now husband and how he changed her views on marrying again in the publication. She also shared her embarrassment over making so much money.
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.”
