Reese Witherspoon is the cover model of the February 2012 issue of Elle, and in the accompanying interview, the actress opened up about her husband Jim Toth, the realities of aging in Hollywood and living a less-than-perfect life.
“Jim said, ‘I’m gonna show you every day what a good partner is, what a good person is,’” said Witherspoon, when asked if she thought she would ever marry again. “‘I’m going to take care of you. I’m gonna do this so much that you’re gonna get used to it.’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ I’ve never had anybody like that in my life.”
Witherspoon also revealed her realistic approach to love. “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,” she said. “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.”
