Reese Witherspoon Says No More Pink!

03/15/2007 at 04:00 PM ET

It’s nice to know that Reese Witherspoon has wardrobe dilemmas like rest of us. “I recently put a big pile of clothes on the floor of my closet, and I looked at a lot of the stuff and thought, ‘That’s not me at all! What was I thinking?'” the Oscar winning actress tells Harper’s Bazaar in the magazine’s new issue. “[For Legally Blonde] I went through a pink phase like you wouldn’t belieeeve,” says the actress who recently made a big statement in a yellow Nina Ricci dress at the Golden Globes. “Then there was a Marni phase when I was doing Sweet Home Alabama that was out of control.” Gracing the cover of Bazaar’s “Look Great At Every Age” issue, the newly single mom says she celebrated her big three-oh birthday last spring “playing Boggle and eating fried chicken” with her friends. And, as it turns out, being a Friend-of-Reese’s comes with more perks than mere Boggle matches. “I give away a lot of shoes. It’s really nice to be me. And it’s really nice to be my friend who has the same shoe size.”

Personally, I hate pink, so way to go Reese! :)
She looks awesome! Would love to see her as a brunette again though!

To add to my argument, Reese told this story to a magazine so I think she does have “control” over what comes out of her mouth. Many people would use the opportunity to speak to a magazine for something a little more important than cleaning out their closet. Maybe she could have given all those clothes and shoes away to a woman’s shelter, I doubt her friend is needy.

Don’t be mistaken by celebs, she may not be a Paris Hilton clone in terms of behaviour but she’s still another richie rich living in luxury in a world full of poverty. If you’ve ever seen an interview where any actor or actress talks about working 16 hour days on movie sets don’t bother feeling sorry for them. The reason they have to work crazy hours is because their overblown salary takes such a huge chunk out of the films budget that there is never enough money to hire the ideal amount of workers or rent the locations for a decent amount of time so the crew is always understaffed and overworked. It’s the same deal on every movie set with a big star who demands a big paycheck; everything needs to be done super fast and all the “little people” have to work insane hours just so a person like Miss. Witherspoon can make $20 million for acting in a movie. No one on earth deserves that kind of money when more than 20 million kids in the world are starving. She a greedy, self absorbed rich girl just like the Hilton’s, Lohan and all the others, she just has a cleaner social life. She has enough power to change the greed some of the greed in Hollywood but she just allows the big money truck to dump out the millions every time she does a job that so many little girls (who have hardly any clothes in their closet)dream about being able to do(and never will). She has stated very often that she is extremely bothered by the paparazzi, well what goes around comes around; a greedy life has consequences.

To the “Student”: do you honestly believe that by asking such a simple question you will get the answer? That would hardly take up any brainspace, leave alone lecture time, would it?

I think Reese is an amazing actor. Yes she wears all the makeup that hollywood makes her, and dyes her hair and all, but that does not mean in anyway that she is “fake” or “snobby”. I have read articles about her, and she is real, just as real as anyone of us nonstars. And she has that natural beauty. If she were not to wear makeup, she would still be beautiful, because she has the natural facial structure of an angel. Honestly, I wish I could have her face and hair.

SHE IS very beatiful girl

I like Reese b/c she is not constantly in the papers or the news. She doesn’t do the Lindsay, Paris or Brittney thing. Her family is too important for her to be out partying or being half dressed out in public. She is not trashing Ryan in the papers all the time. She is a pretty good actress too. As for this pic or her, I dont think its the best. It’s giving the wrong meaning of her. This pic belongs on the cover of Hustler or Playboy.

Oh no, God forbid Reese speak about clothing to a… gasp…FASHION MAGAZINE!!! Seriously What, you sound like an idiot. Maybe YOU should take a lesson from yourself and talk about something besides celebrity gossip. You aren’t any less frivolous than anyone else so get off your high horse.

Juliette on

Gee What, if you really “have a life”, why do you waste so much of your time on writing eleborate posts that only bring negativity into the world. If you really care so much about all the poor people in the world, mayby you should spend that time on helping them instead of being a grumpy old nerd and putting down Reese Witherspoon. I think she is wonderful and unlike you she gives of a positive vibe!

Janedoe 1083,

If you think that stars are mentally children, and this article is self centered, then why are you reading people magazine? Go clean out another closet or something.

Alice on

Janedoe 1083 didn’t write that, What wrote it. Along with a bunch of other rude comments. Apparently, she thinks she is above everyone but she spends an awful lot of time arguing over celebrity gossip.
