Reese Witherspoon just wants us to prepare for crypto being ‘the norm’

6th Annual InStyle Awards 2021

Reese Witherspoon is very rich and she’s a successful producer, actress and lifestyler. She’s also something of an Instagram influencer, I guess you’d call it. I mean, she’s much more online these days, and she uses her social media to talk about books, business, clothes, everything. This week, she did a post about habits people can adopt to easily improve their daily lives. Her suggestions: drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning, spend at least 10 minutes outside in daylight, reading 30-60 minutes without distraction every day, and trying to get eight hours of sleep (which is bonkers). Reese’s nice little post got a reply from Ina Garten, the Food Network chef who spends her days getting drunk, cooking chicken and playing cards with her gay-dude friends.

Ina’s comment reminds us all to… you know, give ourselves a break.

Meanwhile, Reese is also getting into crypto?? Girl, can we not??

This is like the mom-influencer version of Matt Damon’s “get laid, conquer the world, buy crypto” commercial. Reese is obviously being paid somewhere, by someone, to do this wide-eyed Mary Kay version of “you want to be prepared, right?? That’s why you need to get into crypto, ladies!” The comments on that tweet were pretty bad.

    She’s ridiculous.

  2. Lizzie Bathory says:

    Crypto dudes paying celebrities to shill for a *checks notes* “currency” tells me they’re getting desperate. Good.

    • DeeSea says:

      Absolutely! The part that I can’t wrap my head around is why someone like Reese Witherspoon would choose to get involved in this BS. She’s mega-wealthy and mega-successful (in multiple legitimate areas), so why would she risk damaging her brand for just another paycheck?

      • BlueNailsBetty says:

        Let me tell you something about well-to-do white women…they desperately want approval from well-to-do white men. So if she needs to jump on the crypto train, she will jump on the crypto train.

  3. Vera says:

    I wish these rich folks could just understand that they are not relatable, they are not speaking to the masses, and the lives/lifestyles they lead (particularly this far into the pandemic) are not at all like the rest of ours.

  4. Gah says:

    Her post about habits is ridiculous. And she’s clearly seeding for some crypto announcement.

    But for real ladies we need to secure the bag- and crypto is part of it.

    If my former babysitter/aspiring actor/sex worker has a coin base account then so should we all.

    celebitchies watch Raoul Pal interviews on YouTube. He is not a crypto bro and is a brilliant futurist.

    It’s def annoying and tone def how Reese and Goop are jumping on the crypto for the masses train and demonstrates how invested (lolz) they are in multiple streams of income.

    We normies certainly have a diff lived experience from them but please please buy some crypto even if it’s 20$ thank you I will step off my soapbox

    • ccsays says:

      Nope, not going to invest in something that’s helping to decimate the environment by using more power than entire nations. Thanks anyway.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Another nope here. It’s decimating our environment at an alarming pace. It’s needs to be regulated AND processed in a more friendly environmental manner. No MORE crypto scams!!

  5. Mc says:

    Wow, I actually do all four of her suggestions. I just like to read, bake in the sun, and go to bed early. But I can def co-sign on the large cosmos.

    • Sarah says:

      I’m not there on the uninterrupted reading (I need to PUT MY PHONE DOWN in the evenings) but the other three are pretty much part of my routine and I like that she said 8 hours rest as I struggle to get that much sleep but have made my peace with being in bed, reading and chilling and seeing the benefits in that. Early to bed for the win!

      • Nope says:

        I assume “30-60 minutes of uninterrupted reading” doesn’t mean on your phone. The idea is putting down your phone and picking up a book or perhaps magazine or newspaper.

        Some people do really well with e-readers, of course. I can say for sure if I’m on my phone or the internet generally I’m always jumping around. News, gossip blogs, shopping, text messages, emails, my work chat app, my kid’s school app, etc etc etc. Totally different experience than uninterrupted reading, and much more frazzling and addictive.

  6. MoP says:

    Bet she didn’t get paid in crypto for shilling for crypto

  7. DeluxeDuckling says:

    Dude celebs have been posting about crypto for ages and I don’t see anyone jumping up their asses

  8. jferber says:

    I saw an article about the MAGATS and Crypto– apparently it’s a match made in heaven. I don’t have the energy or desire to figure out why.

    • Nope says:

      Crime, I think. It’s a great way to hide illicit purchases–sex, drugs, January 6th donations, etc.

  9. Case says:

    I like her post of suggestions. They’re all easily attainable and things I find actually help my mental health a lot when I stick to them.

    As for the crypto — lol, off brand much? That’s kinda bizarre. I understand privately this is something she thinks about, but to the public she’s a cute Southern mom with a book club. It’s a bit incongruous with her image.

  10. Mama says:

    How hyprocritical… she tweets about conservation and protecting the earth and then sells out to crpyto company. Crypto, NFTs, bitcoin do so much damage and increase climate change. I’ve lost any enjoyment I had for her as an actress.

    • Steph says:

      How do cryptos increase climate change? And someone else mentioned they use more power than entire countries? I’ve tried to read a bit on cryptos but I lack understanding big time.

      • CE says:

        I’m also not a tech-bro so bear with my cursory understanding, but apparently the servers they use to generate bitcoins and other crypto currencies use such an insane amount of electricity it negates let’s say, the use of solar power on the same property, or a few years of recycling plastic.

      • Lizzie Bathory says:

        It’s complicated, but in order to generate a crypto “coin” & to maintain the integrity of the blockchain (which is what preserves the value of the “coins”) you need to solve a computer problem and show “proof of work.” The amount of computer processing power required to “mine” coins & maintain the blockchain network is immense. It consumes massive amounts of energy & is horrible for the environment.

        Here’s what you need to know about crypto:
        1) it’s bad bad bad for the environment
        2) it behaves like a commodity, not a currency, so invest accordingly (so if you don’t listen to the late night infomercials telling you to buy gold, then steer clear of crypto as well)
        3) scratch the surface of who’s pushing crypto & things get dark quickly

  11. Becks1 says:

    So I do like her actual suggestions – I don’t start my day with water (I need something hot in the morning), and stepping outside for 10 minutes sounds awful in this cold snap lol, but I do know that I need to make an effort to get more sunshine in the winter, and I do need to be mindful of my sleep habits and I do try to read every day, usually for about an hour and a half overall (not at once.)

    But even though I enjoy her on social media, I am over celebrities telling me how to make my life better. Take you millions and shove it, lol.

    (I’m not actually bitter, I’m just…..over it, I guess, like I said.)

  12. CE says:

    Crypto is TERRIBLE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. As a mom; for that reason alone, Reese should not do this. No one should.
    Anyway, I’m prepared to (hopefully) look back on these lame trends in a few years with a laugh. Who’s with me??

  13. Oria says:

    If Crypto really was as hot as they make it out to be, the celebrities would not push it and tell the mainstream about it.
    They would keep that secret to themselves and make more money.

  14. Katie says:

    I’m not 100%, but I think the insane energy use is mostly associated with mined cryptocurrencies. However, I think the “biggest names” in crypto are all mined.

  15. Molly Fulton says:

    How is 8 hours of sleep bonkers? That’s the dream!

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I would LOVE 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep!!! I wake at around 2-3 every morning until at least 5-8 every morning. I can’t sleep 8 solid hours unless I have surgery that would last that long! I do miss one day a week though, every week! I got to sleep on one day and wake up 2 days later. My body is all out of wack as well as my medications! I have an opiate patch that I place in my cheek every 12 hours, which is hell as they advise you not to drink or talk, which is impossible for me. I usually take a nap.

  16. Mina_Esq says:

    Anything that any government can shut down and outlaw pretty quickly seems like a risky investment. Banks and Western governments will go to any extent to protect their own financial interests. If crypto threatens that, it’s done.

  17. Ritata says:

    “She’s really nice” – sure, she plays that role of a sweet, Southern girl. I doubt that she’s nice, though. Always got a mean girl vibe from her? Anyway, her trying to make crypto happen is bonkers.
