Photos of Reese Witherspoon With Deacon Phillippe, Quotes About Her Farm, Weirdest Chrismas Gift, and Dressing Up Her Oscar
Reese Likes Her Holiday Spirit With a Dash of Country

Reese Witherspoon went casual to take Deacon to the market in LA on Saturday. She's starting to make the rounds promoting Four Christmases, while figuring out how to juggle the holidays with Ryan and their kids. In two recent interviews, Reese's inner country girl shines through as she talks about an odd Christmas gift and how she gets her Walk the Line Oscar into the holiday spirit. Here are some highlights:

  • On her strangest Christmas present ever: "My dad's a doctor, and his patients used to always send him weird things because we grew up in Tennessee — so it's country. One year they sent a dead squirrel . . . as dinner. So we had it in the freezer for like three years . . . my brother and I were daring each other to touch it for like $10."
  • On the location of her Oscar: "I keep it in my front den. We like to dress it up for Christmas. We put a little Santa hat on it and scarf because it gets cold."
  • On going to her Ojai farm post-Christmas: "We feed the chickens and the pigs — I have two pigs, and boy are they really pigs. They just get down in that mud and roll around. I like getting down in there and working in the garden. Oh, I want someone to build me a good chicken coop . . . like a man who can just get down there and build it . . . ooh."

Leave it to Reese to make sure her Oscar stays warm, and as for a helping hand on her farm, we think we know just the muscle man for the job.

She's a country girl but she can't touch dead squirrel? Oh please Reese, people eat them! She seems normal but quite innocent which is strange.

lol! I like reese, she's so normal, but with just a hint of 'crazy' that makes her easy to relate to!

That's so cute that she dresses up her Oscar! I would love to raise some pigs, they are so cute...but I would probably feel like a big hypocrite because I love to eat bacon.

you have to laugh at the thought of her dressing up her oscar for the holidays no? i think that it's great that regardless of all her success, she's still such a great girl who knows values and all that. i hope that we get to continue to see more of her like this. she's really amazing.

Deacon is adorable. I think Reese trys to sell herself as the down home country girl a little too hard. I just don't buy her shtick.

I live in Ventura, and Ojai is only 10 miles from my house. It is weird to think that she and her family are so nearby.

I agree with xosofiaxo She does seem very down to earth. I think she looks even better since her divorce. Great sense of style and grace. I do hope she does some more dramatic roles soon. I was amazed with her acting in Walk The Line.

I like Reese. I am not really looking forward to her Christmas movie with Vince, but I am sure she has a bunch of other movies in the works that are more my style. :)

She's awesome. If I had an Oscar it'd probably be kept with me at all times, I wouldn't want it out of my sight just so I could always be sure it was real. LMAO
