Photos and Quotes From Reese Witherspoon's Parade Magazine Cover Talking About Marriage

All Reese Witherspoon Needs Is Love, Not Marriage

Reese Witherspoon looks wholesome on this week's cover of Parade magazine. The actress has been promoting Four Christmases and talking a lot about her family life as well as showing off her inner country girl charm. We love Reese's honesty and in this interview she talks about her divorce from Ryan and how she feels about marriage now that she's in a serious relationship again. Here are some highlights:

  • On marriage: "Family is all we have in life, but I don’t know how I feel about marriage. Obviously, I’m not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again. You sort of reconstitute your family. You find a family, with people who come into your life for a reason."
  • On divorce: "There are things in my life that are hard to reconcile, like divorce. Sometimes it is very difficult to make sense of how it could possibly happen. Laying blame is so easy. I don’t have time for hate or negativity in my life. There’s no room for it. When you make wrong choices, you have to take responsibility for them: ‘What part of this do I own?’ I struggle to figure out what made me make those choices. All I can hope for is that I’ve learned something from it and won’t make the same choices again."

  • On wanting to be understood: "I feel like I am seeking understanding. Popularity is not part of it. Popularity is literally about behaving the right way and saying the right things. To me, that was easy. But I wanted to be understood. I still feel like no one really knows me."
  • On her celebrity status: "The biggest detriment of my life is tabloid fame, it removes me from people. When I first meet someone, it is so hard for me to overcome everything they’ve read about me. It’s not fair. It’s difficult, because I’m the kind of person who just wants to hug people."
  • On love: "Do I need men? I don’t think it’s about needing men. It’s about love. Everybody needs love. Everyone deserves it. [...] I definitely still have a capacity to love. [...] Things change but your ability to love remains intact. Oh, I have a lot of hope for love! I do!"

Reese has always seemed like a sweetheart and her optimistic nature really shines through and hopefully thanks to Jake she can do more than just hope for love.

Reese Witherspoon needs to end a showmance with Jake (she makes a fool of herself) and start making better movies - "Four Christmases" is an awful film.

I dunno. I think she's awesome but the pics don't do her justice. She looks like just another pretty soccer mom.

I am a fan of Reese, because she seems so down to earth. I plan on going to see "Four Christmases" just because Reese is in it.

She looks bland in those photos, but there is too much photoshopping. Her interview sets her as such a down to earth individual. She deserves a break from paparazzi.

She's barely recognizable on the cover.

She looks terrible on the cover. It doesn't even look like her! The interview is good, she seems like a warm and thoughtful person.

I love what she said about divorce. She didn't try to get pity or whine about it. She is so well adjusted and mature. Sounds like she is beautiful inside and out. She is a saint.

Family is great but is it "all we have in life" I think that is such a trite statement that is all tied into her new movie. If she was in Marley and Me she would be saying pets are the most important things in life....typical Hollywood blah blah blah

Love her, but why did they do that to her face on the cover? Doesn't even look like her anymore- rounded out her face and chin somehow. Strange :ponder:
