Reese Witherspoon Is Fun, Dammit

September 18th, 2007 // 6 Comments

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.”

    This woman rocks! Have any of you seen her in Election or Freeway??? If not, purchase immediately. I very first saw her in the movie, Freeway I, and could not believe my eyes. I knew then that she would be a HUGE success.

    She looks about as ‘fun’ as a lobotomy in these photos though.

    t-bone! I can’t believe it! we agree on something! :)

    Freeway was the first thing I saw her in, too, and she blew me away. I think Election was the next thing I saw her in, and the difference in characters, both played SO well by her, made it evident that she was going to be big.

    Fun nastybugger! Must have the same sick sense of humor.

    I LOVE Reese! She may be “boring” in the sense that she’s not out flashing her cooter and making a drugged-out disgrace of herself, but she’s a gorgeous and talented lady. I support her TOTALLY (despite some of whack movies- but TBone’s right…Freeway is one of the best movies EVER.)

    She looks like Leonardo DiCaprio when she wears that baseball cap.
