Reese Witherspoon took a sunny stroll with a friend yesterday in Brentwood. The actress, who frequently fits in outdoor workouts, traded her usual jogging routine for a walk as she chatted up her exercise partner. Reese has been taking a break from work in recent months and has been spending lots of time with her loved ones during the hiatus. She regularly attends Sunday church services with her husband Jim Toth and kids Ava and Deacon Phillippe, shops at the Brentwood Country Mart near her home, and meets up for casual meals with her friends.
Not all of her outings are low-key, however. Earlier this month, she stepped out in a sexy LBD for the LACMA Art + Film Gala's red carpet, and she also made a showstopping appearance in Nashville at the recent CMA Awards. Reese was an attendee rather than an honoree at both events, but it was recently announced that she'll be given an award by the Gene Siskel Film Center in 2012, and she's also currently up for a People's Choice Award.
