Reese Witherspoon: ‘It’s Tough Being a Woman’

Reese WitherspoonREESE Witherspoon says it’s “tough” being a woman.

The Legally Blonde actress — who has two young children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and recently split from longtime boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal — admits she feels pressure to conform to certain ideals.

“It’s tough being a woman,” Reese told the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper. “You are supposed to be self-sufficient, but we all need our sisters. I have three women friends who will drop anything to help me and I will do the same for them.

“I believe in those female bonds, because a lot of stuff happens with men and marriage and divorce, but family and friends are paramount.

“I can remember my own mother struggling with her weight and self-esteem. It was hard for me to watch her, because I thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world.

“When we women talk about our bodies and our looks, we have to be mindful of the effect this can have on little girls.”

“Certainly, being in a relationship is important to me,” Reese added. And according to the Mail, the actress flat out refused to discuss her recent split from Gyllenhaal.
