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.”

Actually, I don’t think What needs to chill out at all, I think she is simply pointing out some very real, though certainly inconvenient, issues.

I think What’s frustration comes from the fact that here are people who have it in their power to make a real difference in the world, but choose not to, and instead focus on replacing their wardrobes…

But I guess addressing a audience has its perils! I don’t mean to appear self-righteous, or anything, but I imagine the average reader will indeed be more interested in fashion, celebrities, and gossip, rather than poverty, celeb hypocrisy, etc..

Right on Ashley! I am sure WHAT has to keep telling herself that she is happy and has a happy life when in reality she obviously has some anger built up and has to take it out on a fashion post. Get over it WHAT. Oh and on the actual point of this post Reese is great.

And Annon when people are reading this mag of course they are interested in fashion, stars and gossip. I am sure a lot of the readers are interested in poverty but they don’t read People mag and post on the blog but instead donate to charities.

Just because someone has in interest in fashion or celebrity gossip does not mean they don’t know about world issues. Give me a break, you sound ridiculous. In fact,last time I checked, most people were multi-faceted. Its called a guilty pleasure and everyone has one. Some come on these blogs to take a break from reality and read about something light-hearted, there is nothing wrong with that you and What seriously need to get over yourselves. If you think you are so above all this, than go somewhere else, its that simple.

She is my idol…not only because she is amazing at everything she does but also because everytime i meet someone new they always tell me i look like her and it gives me butterflies just to hear that over and over : ] She is totally an awesome actor and i really hope to meet her one day.

Hey kids, be warned, this blog and many others are now the property of “WHAT” (as in “what-the-heck-makes-you-think-you’re-all-that). Get set to steep yourselves in the miseries of the world, many of which are already a part of your everyday life, because “WHAT’S blog” is no longer for frivolous diversion, but for her self-righteous rantings.

Reese: YOU are inspiring! You are beautiful, smart,
sassy and a great actress. When I read the blogs of others who critique you, I smile and see their comments in green.
They are simply jealous… of a woman who has worked her
derriere off to be where she is, walked through the pain of a divorce with her posture straight, tall and humble and
who makes it obvious that she loves her children. You
go grrrl, you are looking hot!

Look at that sexy thing.She looks so good. I want to be her because she is so pretty.

I think you’ve taken an ingenious (if unique) approach to collecting data.
My personal opinion (soon to be subject to rebuttal by WHAT) is that we/society is fascinated with celebrity life for several reasons:
A) We’re all pretty aware, firsthand, of the ills of the world and need the occasional diversion.
B) It’s quite intriguing to dissect the differences in our lifestyles and try to imagine what it would be like to live extravagantly, and how they happened to arrive at such “luck.”
C) I have personally found that keeping track of celebrity’s lives makes mine look so much better. I mean sure, the two pairs of shoes I own are from Payless and they have 500 dresses from designers I can’t pronounce, but my spouse is devoted to me and my children are happy & healthy, and nobody hides in my bushes trying to get a picture of me without my makeup. I’ve never been caught on film without my panties and I always know which direction to drive on the interstate. I am of the opinion that we are so intrigued by celebrities BECAUSE of their human fallibility – that they make us that much more grateful for our average little lives and the fact that they aren’t played out in front of the whole world.
Not that I would mind having $30 million…

She has never looked better…love the hair, and soft makeup!!!
