Reese Witherspoon's quotes

  • [on Ryan Phillippe]: I'm lucky to find a person to share my life, and the best friend I'll ever have.
  • [on motherhood and her baby]: I feel good, I'm proud of Election (1999) and very proud of this [her child]. It couldn't be a better time. It's always the right time when it happens. You make it the right time.
  • I grew up in Tennessee. We didn't know what Louis Vuitton was. I had to order all my prom outfits out of catalogs.
  • While making Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003), I had like 50 outfit changes. It was great! I'm real into the whole "girlie" thing, it was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it.
  • Attending an all-girls school has its advantages, there are no inhibitions. You can walk to school with your zit cream on and your hair in rollers and nobody cares.
  • It's nice to come home to what's real. - E! Revealed with Jules Asner (2001)
  • [on husband Ryan Phillippe] I don't think I can imagine a better guy than the one I've ended up with.
  • There's something timeless and important about making people laugh, about being the right spot in their day. - as quoted in the December 7, 2004 issue of Woman's World.
  • I was thinking about why I make movies, and I know why. Life is hard. It's nice to go escape and have a good time at the movies. If I can give people a movie about hope, love and the future, then I've done my job.
  • I do think things were meant to happen. I'm just this little girl from Tennessee, and here I am today. I think a lot of things are just out of your hands.
  • Life isn't just about you: It's about family and friends and giving back. - as quoted in Woman's World magazine 2-21-06.
  • [on dual careers and marriage]: Marriage and family come before everything. You don't want to make a movie at the cost of your relationship.
  • I feel like there's a race being run for some unattainable goal - to be the best, the skinniest, the most beautiful. I just admit that's what I'll never be.
  • I think everyone has their own set of problems, and sometimes I feel I'm in the middle of the biggest challenge of my life just trying to maintain normalcy in a kind of crazy lifestyle.
  • Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their lives. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.
  • I feel like there's a race being run in Los Angeles for some unattainable goal - to be the best, the skinniest, the most beautiful. I just admit that that's what I'll never be. (Marie Claire - September 2005)
  • I feel there are certain people who are systematically ripping [feminism] down because of their lack of regard and their ignorance about what the women before us had to go through. (Marie Claire - September 2005)
  • I'm wary of what goal I set, because then I'll have to accomplish it. (Vanity Fair - September 2004 - "Regally Blonde" by Leslie Bennett)
  • I like work. If it's not hard enough, I try to make it harder. I like the process of being daunted by it, tackling it, and knowing I can do it (Vanity Fair - September 2004 - "Regally Blonde" by Leslie Bennett)
  • When I was a question on Jeopardy! (1984), that's when I felt famous.
  • 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.".
  • [on storing her Oscar] I have it out [at home] with the kids artwork... I think it's great when they hold it and dress it up.
  • [on the Academy Awards] It's funny that it all becomes about clothes. It's bizarre. You work your butt off and then you win an award and it's all about your dress. You can't get away from it.
  • If you are not yelling at your kids, you are not spending enough time with them.
  • My grandmother was a quintessential southern lady who didn't leave the house without being somewhat put together. She taught me it doesn't matter what's going on in your life, you've got to show your best self to the world.
  • When you look good, you feel good. I know that's what Elle Woods says, but it's true!!
