Reese Witherspoon Credits Her Brother With Getting Her Through The Biggest Mistake Of Her Life

Seriously, she divorced a beautiful, beautiful man. Call me shallow but it’s like she barred herself from being able to look at that everyday. Why exile yourself from Fantasy Island? Reese Witherspoon says that her older brother John really helped her get through her painful divorce from Ryan Phillippe. He called her several times a day. He was probably looking for some of that “Legally Blonde” money.

“It’s been a challenging year. But I feel I am so lucky to have a wonderful family and great friends,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

“My brother calls me three times a day to see how I’m doing and that’s a real stabilising element in my life,” she added.

Seriously, she has to miss being able to rest her head on Ryan’s abs. Then again, they were carved out of heavenly marble so maybe that wouldn’t be too comfortable.
