Reese Witherspoon Says Ryan Phillippe Divorce Was 'Very Humiliating'

By Chloe Bunker on March 4, 2009

LOS ANGELES — Reese Witherspoon hit a low point when she split with Ryan Phillippe in 2006, a divorce that was both "very humiliating and very isolating" in her eyes. But the actress says it was the right way to feel at the time.

"If it's not painful, maybe it wasn't the right decision to marry to begin with," the 32-year-old star reasons in the April issue of Elle. "Those are the appropriate emotions."

The "Walk the Line" star says things went from bad to worse as her friends and family tried to pick her back up from the divorce.

"When people get in your face and say, 'This will pass,' you think: Are they crazy?" she explains to the mag. "I'm never gonna feel any better than I feel right this minute and nothing's ever gonna make sense again. And I still have moments where I'm like, 'Nothing's ever gonna make sense again.' "

Witherspoon and Phillippe married in 1999 and have two children together, Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4. After her marriage tumbled, Witherspoon said she looked at herself in the mirror to find answers.

"You see a lot of people play this blame game. Blame, blame, blame. You know? And it's a really easy thing to do, and I'm certainly guilty of it," she tells Elle. [You have to] look at yourself and go, 'What part of this do I need to own? Which part of this is my responsibility? And that's the painful work that you have to go through to hopefully get some real life knowledge out of it."

As for her current beau, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, Witherspoon says she couldn't be happier.

"He's fabulous," she says. "He really is a fantastic guy."

Reese Witherspoon Talks Holiday Shopping for the Kids

By Chloe Bunker on November 30, 2008

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Reese Witherspoon admits she wasn't always the glamorous star that her fans have come to know over the years.

"I was a very scrawny little kid with gigantic glasses," the 32-year-old actress tells the BBC in an interview to promote her upcoming movie, "Four Christmases." "There are always those pictures that come out that are so mortifying."

Witherspoon says it was easy to relate to her character in the holiday film, in which she stars alongside Vince Vaughn.

"I know what it feels like to be thrown up on or doing all that kind of stuff," she explains. "I thought it would be quite funny because my character's so scared of children."

"I never knew anything about kids until I had my own," adds Witherspoon. "I'd never even held a baby until I had my own baby so I totally understood where she was coming from."

Witherspoon has two children, Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5, with her ex-husband, actor Ryan Phillippe. While the "Walk the Line" star has yet to begin her holiday shopping due to her new film's busy promotional schedule, she admits that she doesn't like to spoil her children too much.

"I'm a little strict about that kind of stuff," she explains of her shopping plans. "I think kids do best when they only have a couple of things that they really enjoy. I try and stay away from the gluttony of things. They don't appreciate it as much. When they only get one or two things they really like it."

Witherspoon says her holidays always involve plenty of time in the kitchen.

"I really enjoy that part of it," she admits.

The Academy Award-winner also says her children have a unique tradition involving her Oscar.

"They put a little hat on him and a little scarf so he doesn't get cold," she says.
