Usually coy about her two-year relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, Reese Witherspoon has revealed a nugget or two about their life together. Here's a hint: It's pretty idyllic stuff.

Opening up to the November issue of InStyle magazine, the 33-year-old discusses domestic details with her actor beau.

“Jake is a great cook—he does a lot," she says. "We spend the weekends outside L.A, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse. We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee.”

And while she won't be drawn on whether she'll marry again, she admits that her divorce from Ryan Phillippe was a learning process.

“You have to keep it together for your kids and for yourself too. I’m trying to learn from the things that have happened in my life, live more in the moment, and have more fun," she says, "Going to more concerts. Jake and I went to Coachella this year.”

As well as holding down her acting and producing career, she's juggling motherhood to Ava, 10, and Deacon, 5.

“Sometimes it’s really difficult for me, being far away from home. I never imagined that my children wouldn’t grow up next door to my brother’s children," she admits, "Or my mom and dad wouldn’t constantly be around. At least I have a lot of southern friends in L.A.—I gravitate toward them.”
