On plastic surgery: “I’m not for it. I’m not against it. I have plenty of friends who do stuff and if it makes you feel good, great. But I don’t think it’s the fix for some sort of unease that you’re having about who you are as a human being. I don’t think I need plastic surgery at this point. Can we just go day-by-day on that one?”
On showing off her body in her new film: “I don’t worry about it. I have the body I earned. I had two kids and I’m still strong and healthy. And you start to have a different respect for your body the older you get. Instead of tearing yourself apart all the time, you start to go “Oh wow”.”
On being frugal(ish): Despite earning millions of dollars per movie, Witherspoon admits she can be quite frugal when it comes to shopping. Although she recently splashed out on a black Valentino bag, she revealed she can’t bring herself to buy an expensive bag from The Row – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion label.
“I have this fixation about this black leather The Row purse, but it’s so prohibitively expensive, I will not allow myself to buy it. I literally go to the store to visit it. Too much money – it feels decadent. I can’t wrap my brain around it. If I bought it, I’d only feel upset about it and take it back. However, she justified her purchase of the Valentino bag, because ‘it’s super-plain and beautiful and just feels like something you’ll have forever’.”
