Reese Witherspoon Beauty Advice Interview
If You See Reese Witherspoon With a Smoky Eye, Her Daughter, Ava, Was Probably the MUA
POPSUGAR: So today is all about fragrance — tell me a little bit about how you wear it. Are you the spritz-on-your-wrist or walk-into-it person?
Reese Witherspoon: I'm definitely spray in the air and walk through it — two, three times. Forward. Back. Forward. Out.
PS: Do you have specific scent memories that are linked to particular perfumes?
RW: Perfume reminds me of my grandmother. She always loved beautiful floral fragrances like rose and gardenia, and my mother was the same. I remember all the bottles lined up on her dresser and just thinking she was so feminine and gorgeous.
PS: Do you remember when you first started wearing perfume and what you wore?
RW: I do, actually. I think the first perfume I ever bought was Betsey Johnson. Doesn't that just say that I grew up in the '90s?
PS: Totally. Tell me about your title with Elizabeth Arden as storyteller-in-chief. Can you talk about the role that storytelling has played in your own life?
RW: It's all I ever wanted to be when I was little. I loved reading. I loved books. I just loved telling other people's stories. The fact that I've been able to transform my life and be a storyteller for as long as I have, and now have the opportunity to help women get their stories made into film and television, [is] just really a dream come true.
