Reese Witherspoon wore another cute casual outfit out shopping today, though this time she didn't have her kids to accompany her. Reese was once again one of our favorite females of the year and she once again showed her Southern girl sensibilities during an interview for the February cover of InStyle UK.

  • On living in LA: "Sometimes it’s really difficult for me, being far away from home. LA is where my job is and I have to be close, but I never imagined that my children wouldn’t grow up next door to my brother’s children. Or that my mom and dad wouldn’t constantly be around.

  • On Ava: "She’s almost as tall as me — it’s getting scary. But when she and Deacon get home from school, it’s more about gymnastics, horse riding, karate, or whatever."
