Reese Witherspoon for Vogue US May 2011

Reese Witherspoon goes retro in the new issue of Vogue US (May 2011). The photo shoot was inspired by her new movie, Water for Elephants, directed by Francis Lawrence. Check out the interview excerpts, photos (click to enlarge) and movie trailer below:

On her husband, Jim Toth (they were married on March, 26): “He’s wonderful. He’s just a really great guy, and I feel really lucky."

On being in a good place in her life: “I mean . . . it sort of indicates that at other times I was not in a good place. Which is true. I have had my share of heartbreak. But I think your friends really know when you are at your happiest. Even though I am nervous and excited and all those things people feel when they are about to get married, I think I am mostly very calm right now. Usually, I’m a little bit of a squirrel. I have a squirrelly energy.”

On being 35 years old: "I’ve had some really kind of sad moments lately. You don’t go backward! And I think 35 for a woman is a big thing. I remember when I was a little girl looking up at my mother at 35 doing her hair in the mirror, and I thought, my mother has never been more beautiful. She had years of wisdom you can't erase. And now I feel the same way when I look in the mirror. You can't pretend you are an ingenue. You can't pretend you are wide-eyed and innocent. It's on your face! It's in your body. It's in your voice. It's in your reactions to things when people say, 'I just did the most morally corrupt thing I've done in my life' and you literally don't blink. You've either done it yourself or you know someone who has."

"I definitely know now that I know nothing. When I was 26 I would have told you a lot of things that I thought I knew really, really well. I was a little more shut down in my 20s. I was really scared of a lot of things and a lot of people."
