In the new issue of Elle magazine, Reese Witherspoon opens up about her split from her ex-husband Ryan Phillipe. She says: “I thought, Okay, half of the parking lot has dealt with this. More than half of the parking lot has dealt with this. Okay, let’s make it a little bigger. Half of this city has dealt with this. Okay, let’s make it a little bigger – half of this country, until I finally got out of the car."
The article also tries to clear up those Jake Gyllenhaal romance rumors. Gavin Hood, who directed them in their new movie Rendition told Elle, “The only time they ever saw each other was in a wardrobe test. There’s one photo that caught them saying hi to each other in the parking lot…they did not have an affair on set. The young lady had enough to deal with.”
And what’s her take on everyone’s obsession with Hollywood failure? "Everybody is hung out to dry now. It’s one thing if you’re up for it and you want it, and you go out without your panties on. But if you’re wearing your panties – gosh darn it, leave me alone!"
