She says the stats about her salary are just rumors. "No, none of that's true. You know, I don't even read any of it 'cause it's like, one day you're up, next day you're down. I just try to keep focused on the work. And try and just stay in movies that people want to see!"
Reese also has been busy shooting a new film called "Four Christmases" with Vince Vaughn, and advocating for women's issues such as breast cancer as the first global ambassador for Avon cosmetics. In March she will address the United Nations in honor of International Women's Day, a role that the actress says she relishes.
Witherspoon says right now she's feeling "really good" in her life. "I feel very, like, grateful — I'm, I'm really lucky. I've had, you know, a lot of ups and downs, and I'm not going to lie and say it was easy. It's not been easy, but I'm finding some peace, you know, I feel, like, good and I'm so lucky to have two beautiful, healthy, lovely, giving sweet children."
With Valentine's Day coming up this week, Reese is helping her kids who "love it" get ready and cut out little valentines for them to take to school.
"As soon as I get done here I have to run to the arts and crafts store because I have to make Valentine's Day cards and boxes. It's too fun. It's like having a second childhood. You get to go and do it all over again."
