Reese Witherspoon Is Fun, Dammit

Reese Witherspoon wants to try and shake her Type-A persona somewhat and in a recent interview with Elle magazine insisted that she’s a heck of a lot more fun-loving and carefree than most people would think.

“I wouldn’t be able to do what I do if I were [always in control]. I wouldn’t be able to have the empathy or the capacity to understand different lives.”

“I’m fun. I can be really fun. I can tell we’d have a lot of fun if the [interviewer’s] tape was off…”

I’m sure Reese is fun in her own “hey-teacher-you-forgot-to-give-us-homework” sort of way, but it reminds me too much of when someone tells me how “funny” they are. I generally respond by telling them, “Yeah, I’ll be the judge of that because I too consider myself to be funny. You can tell because I’m wearing a shirt that says, ‘Funny Bitch.’ Get it? It validates me in a way that laughter never could.”
