Elle Goes Hollywood
It’s that time of the year again when Elle celebrates women in Hollywood with a special issue. Elle fave Reese Witherspoon covers the new issue (on stands October 22nd) and opens up about her children changing her. “Somebody was saying to me the other day, ‘Oh, people get less interesting when they have kids.’ I just don’t think that’s true,” she explains. “I feel like I was so confused before I had kids, I almost got in my own way. Having kids made me clearer about who I was as a woman. I just wanted to exhibit good qualities for my daughter. I was a little competitive before I had kids- probably really competitive, to be honest. It really made me let go of that.” The issue also features Penelope Cruz, Melissa McCarthy, and Shailene Woodley. We’re amused with Woodley giving a glimpse into what the next five years could carry for her: “I’m so young, and I’m single, and I just want to drift,” she says. “I’m just going to be a drifter. I want to do something totally different before Insurgent [the second film in the Divergent trilogy]. Maybe I’ll work in a tea shop. Or live in Amsterdam. Or be a nanny. Life experience only helps us as actors. I need new experiences to draw upon.” Somebody’s got ambition.
