Reese Witherspoon covers Elle Magazine, opens up about how her children changed her life.


Reese Witherspoon, 37, covers the November issue of Elle Magazine, dubbed the “Women in Hollywood” issue. Penelope Cruz, Melissa McCarthy and Shailene Woodley also have covers (I’ll post those below). Witherspoon looks amazing on the cover, doesn’t she?

In the interview, she talked about her children, and how they made her a better woman. “Somebody was saying to me the other day, ‘Oh, people get less interesting when they have kids.’ I just don’t think that’s true,” the Oscar winner says. “I feel like I was so confused before I had kids, I almost got in my own way.”

Witherspoon has two children with her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe. 14-year-old Ava, and 9-year-old Deacon. She also has a 12-month old son, Tennessee with her second husband Jim Toth. “Having kids made me clearer about who I was as a woman. I just wanted to exhibit good qualities for my daughter. I was a little competitive before I had kids — probably really competitive, to be honest,” she said. “It really made me let go of that.”

Reese is not only in front of the camera, but she’s also behind it. In 2000 she founded Type A Films, which merged with Pacific Standard in 2012. “I started noticing a couple years ago that I wasn’t seeing women as the stars of movies,” she recalls. “I’m seeing them as the guys’ girlfriends, or so-and-so’s wife. I just thought: God, if I don’t start buckling down and start producing some movies, what’s my daughter going to see in the movies?”

Penelope, Melissa and Shailene’s covers after the jump!
