Reese Witherspoon is the cover girl for the January issue of Glamour Magazine. The photos shoot is meh (go to Glamour’s slideshow here), but the interview is surprisingly un-Reese. She’s talking about sex, y’all. Can you believe that? Hearing Reese even reference any sex act is like hearing a nun fart. Reese tells the magazine that she feels “more confident” in her sexuality now that she’s in her mid-thirties. My guess is that it has less to do with age and more to do with dating a heterosexual man who knows how to give a woman an orgasm. Applause for Jim Toth. Well done, dude.
Reese on her sexuality: “I think as a woman, you get older, you feel more confident in your sexuality. You’re not as intimidated by it, not as embarrassed by it. Sexuality and femininity is an accumulation of age and wisdom and comfort in your own skin. I feel better – so much better now than I ever did in my twenties… I am calmer; I know who I am. And as a result, I feel much sexier.”
Advice to young women/young actresses: “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 rom-coms: “I watch them all the time. I love all my fellow female romantic comedy queens, like Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner and Katie Heigl. I also think that the questions romantic comedies ask about men and women are universal.”
On having more kids: “I would love to have more kids. Kids are the best part of my day. I don’t wake up to make movies. I wake up to hang out with my family.”
On being grateful: “I’m really, really lucky. I’ve got a lot of love in my life. I’ve got great friends. I have two great kids whom I make pancakes for every Sunday. I’m very blessed.”
On her pregnancies: “Both of my pregnancies were easy. I didn’t know anything; I just went into it. I never held a baby until I held my own baby.”
On her boyfriend Jim Toth: “…what I’m finding out is that it’s very comfortable to be with somebody who understands my career, but doesn’t do what I do. [Jim Toth]’s a great guy. He’s wonderful.”

I like this Reese – but I’ve always been a fan of hers. I like how Southern and anal retentive she is, because I identify with exactly those qualities. I know she’s supposed to be a bitch in real life, but she seems like she maintains a good façade of hospitality and professionalism in her public life, so I don’t really care how she is in private – it’s none of my business. I also think she’s probably going to end up marrying Jim Toth – as well she should, he seems like a nice, quiet guy who is happy to let her have the spotlight.

Go Reese! I LOVE her!
i love reese. she’s so cute. but these pictures look more like pleasantville reese than current reese….
I hope she and Jim Toth get married, take their shoes off at the door, and live happily ever after.
I loved her as June Carter. I’m not a romantic move girl, but that movie makes me swoon…
She is so hot
Yea….finally someone worth talking about! Love her, love her southern down-home cuteness. I also hope she & Jim marry and live happily ever after.
That cover looks nothing like Reese. It more looks like Rosie H-W. with the addition of a chin.
Reese is cute as a button but I hear her inner bitch screaming loud & clear.
he’s definitely bringing out her inner sexy. so good for her on finally finding it.
now maybe jen garner will find hers too…
Reese definitely gives off the biggest bitch vibes but she is so talented that I don’t care. I mean I have wanted to hate her ever since Cruel Intentions but it’s never stuck.
Uh This whole interview (as well as the pics) was vanilla and MEH. I mean Reese didn’t say anything about sex that was even remotely interesting. I thought she was gonna go into postions or locations or lubes. You made it sound like she had something naughty and kinky to say, it was like…nothing. I am in my 20s and it shouldn’t take until your 30s to be confident in your sexual self, and heck she was married a majority of her 20s. Ryan must be a meh lover.
I wouldn’t even gather she was having sex from that comment. That sex comment was like code for “I am ok with being on top now.”
“I would love to have more kids. Kids are the best part of my day”
Wasn’t one of the reason’s she split with Jake was because he wanted kids and she didn’t? Ooh, burn! She looks fab and sounds like she’s in a great place now. As for her ex, well he goes on “dates” to coffee houses with Little Miss Teen Dream whilst coming to terms with yet another movie that disappointed at the box office.
@Nicky….maybe she didn’t want kids with Jake(?)
I think she’s spot on! I spent so much time in 20’s being insecure with my body & my being. But 30 was awesome (all freakin’ year long!) and it’s just been getting better since.
I also think her ability to be *ahem* sexually satisfied has to do with her self-confidence level, and not necessarily her men’s sexual prowess. Speaking from experience, it absolutely has to do with a lot of things – how you feel about the man you’re with, you’re connection to one another (outside the bedroom as well), and self-confidence.
Hearing Reese even reference any sex act is like hearing a nun fart.
So funny and so true.
@ MLN – exactly how I feel.
My 30’s are kick the sh*t outta my 20’s.
@brin, I get that impression. I remember reading interviews from when she was with Jake and she always said she was happy how things were and gave no indication of wanting more children. Whatever the reason, she seems like she’s come out of that relationship better off than Jake.
I love the bottom pic. To me, it looks like she is laughingly mocking Lohan.
She looks so beautiful in these pics and you can see the confidence.
Aw, I just love her.
I saw the title and immediately thought of Cougartown. Not that Reese is a cougar but that show has a hilarious song called “Confident in my Sexuality” that cracks me up so much.
The shoot is fab.
I’m loving her hair right now. I was actually looking at pictures of her current haircut – thinking of growing mine out.
She is way to skinny in the last picture.
i LOVED her chemistry with vince vaughn in ‘four christmases’!
such a sexy lil’ minx. 🙂
that dvd is definitely in my holiday movies lineup. i sure hope they do a sequel.
I like her and I hope she and her family will have great happiness and enjoy all their days.
@Manda: “She is way to skinny in the last picture”
Uh.. why? She looks great. Don’t people know the difference between a healthy slim woman and an anorexic anymore? Is it because you [we] are so used to seeing fat people every day that the sight of a beautiful slim one confuses us, makes us comment on how they’re “too skinny”?
It’s ridiculous. Fat has become “normal” now but that doesn’t make it the preferred or ideal body type.
I’m Southern and anal retentive so I feel her.
She’s been around so long I keep thinking she’s in her 40’s.
What a great hair-do. Looks terrific on her. And it settles down that forehead. A nod to the “foreheadily-challenged” among us.
She’s gorgeous! one of my fav actors
Wow, I thought she was much older. She’s starting to look a little “hard”, and like she might have had something done.
I love her too. I think she’s talented and ambitious, and seems like a really good mom to her kids.
I’d be curious to know what kind of bitchy she supposedly is – the kind who treats people poorly and doesn’t care and really is a lousy person, or the kind who simply knows what she wants and doesn’t settle for less and gets labeled a bitch? I have a feeling it’s the latter, but who knows.
@Manda – I agree with you, about her looking too skinny in the last picture. It’s almost like she’s partially disappearing when she turns sideways. I think it’s because they went a bit overboard with the ‘retouching’ & took out too much. Or else the lighting caused a shadow problem.
@PrimeO – She’s welcome to her opinion, & she didn’t make it sound insulting by calling her ‘anorexic’. Lighten up, huh?
Gorgeous. Love her. She is one of my favourite actresses. 😀
You summed her up perfectly Kaiser, gotta love RW hehe 🙂 .
That last photo is def ‘shopped. She’s in fantastic shape but isn’t that “stupid skinny”, as we call it.
Wow she always looks great – so sexy here but never, ever slutty.
Sigh. I wish women who are not naturally forthcoming about their sexuality didn’t try to forcibly go there, just for form’s sake, or at the behest of their team etc etc. It’s always so undignified and cringe inducing.
Some people are naturally verbally slutty, others are better off keeping it zipped and looking mysterious or stitched up or whatever.
Never really felt much one way or the other about RW, except at the start of her career when it looked like she might have a bit of gumption choosing less obvious, left field roles. That didn’t last! Pity, I think with her candy-arse wholesomeness she might have been a great subversive indie choice.
@ lucy2 – I agree with you; she’s just the kind of gal who knows what she wants and won’t settle for less. But she also strikes me as a perfectionist, one who won’t settle for less in that aspect either. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Personally, I get a rather prissy vibe from her. Whatever, I still really like her.
She looks too much like Carrie Underwood on the magazine cover which is not really a bad thing. I just think people should look like themselves.
