GLAMOUR: Sexier in the way that you look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I look good”?
REESE WITHERSPOON: It’s more like, “This is what I’ve got. And I’m going to make the best of it.” 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.” When somebody comes up to me and says, “You look hot in that movie,” I always respond, “But was I funny?” For me, it’s not really about how you look but about the joy or the bit of light that you bring to whatever you do. I know I’m just more attracted to people who have a light about them.
“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.”
GLAMOUR: Everything seems to be going so well for you. Right now, what would you say you love most about your life?
REESE WITHERSPOON: Sunday mornings. Even when I was a child, Sunday morning was a barometer for how the week was going to go. You can learn a lot about yourself with what you’re doing and who you’re with on a Sunday, I think. 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.
