What Comes First For Reese Witherspoon?

Reese Witherspoon talks family life and her working world

In her cover feature as part of Glamour's Women of the World, Reese Witherspoon spoke real truths: for her, it's all about family.

"My family comes first," she told the magazine. "I haven't made a movie probably in a year and a half. I'm focusing on my business, but I also want to spend time with my teenage daughter. It's terrifying that my oldest child is about to leave. I can't imagine not sitting at the foot of her bed saying, 'So what happened at school today?'"

Witherspoon, of course, is referring to her daughter Ava, 16, her daughter with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. She's also the mom to 12-year-old Deacon, and she and husband Jim Toth recently welcomed Tennessee, three years ago.

"Look, you do what you can," she said about protecting her sons from sexist material. "But it's hard. When I find things egregiously misrepresentative of women, I'll make a point to say to my son, 'Turn that off. I don't want you to see women behave that way. And I don't want you to see men treat women that way.' You hope you're saying the right things -- but also, as a kid becomes a teenager, you feel like there's a ticking clock for you to tell them everything they need to know. My kids make me laugh every day. They're so supportive."

And honestly, if your Mum is Reese Witherspoon, how can you not be?
