  • Reese: I want to not perpetuate any more of this kind of garbage that's out there in the media about women falling in love blindly. No one's life is perfect, and I'm sick of whatever tabloid stuff or this or that story tries to portray. My life is just as realistic as everybody else's. Whoever thinks someone has a perfect life, I'm so eager to dispel that.

  • Reese: (on meeting her husband Jim Toth) It happened out of the blue. This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me. He was like, 'You don't know me.' And I was like, 'Yeah, I know. I don't know you!' Jim came over and said, 'Please excuse my friend. He's just broken up with someone.' Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That's just kind of who he is, a really good person.

  • Reese Witherspoon: (on giving Christmas gifts to her children) I'm a little strict about that kind of stuff. I think kids do best when they only have a couple of things that they really enjoy.

  • Reese Witherspoon: (revealing she's not yet ready to marry Jake Gyllenhaal) 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.

  • Reese witherspoon: (on working with Vince Vaughn in "Four Christmases") Vince is the funniest person I've ever worked with in my entire life.
