Reese Has Found Herself a Great Cook in Jake

Reese Witherspoon flashes a big smile on November issue of InStyle. She's been hard at work all Summer shooting How Do You Know?, but Reese managed to find the time to chat about Jake, her exercise regimen, and missing her Southern home. Here's more:

  • On life with Jake: "Jake is a great cook — he does a lot. We spend the weekends outside LA, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse. We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee."
  • On working out: "I try to exercise every day. I like to run for about an hour, and I'm big into working out with girlfriends . . . It's an acquired skill, being able to discuss your love life, children and friends, all while you're running! But we have mastered it."
  • On her Southern upbringing: "Sometimes it's really difficult for me, being far away from home. I never imagined that my children wouldn't grow up next door to my brother's children. Or my mom and dad wouldn't constantly be around. At least I have a lot of Southern friends in LA — I gravitate toward them."
