Reese Witherspoon is speaking out about her divorce from Jim Toth and how it differs from her first divorce from ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.
Witherspoon, 47, said in a profile published Wednesday, July 12, by Harper’s Bazaar–
“When I was divorced before, the tabloid media got to tell people how I was feeling or how I was processing, and it felt very out of control.”
This time things are different — better, according to Witherspoon.
“To be able to talk to people directly about what’s going on in my life and just share it in the way that I share great professional experiences or personal experiences, it feels much more authentic to be able to say things in my own voice and not let somebody else control what’s happening. Then, of course, there’s speculation, but I can’t control that. All I can do is be my most honest, forthright self and be vulnerable.”
She described her current situation as “a vulnerable time for me.” She also stated that she does not feel alone in the process.
“I think about how many other people are going through this experience. I don’t feel isolated at all. I feel very connected.”

Aside from her divorce, Witherspoon continues working with her production company, Hello Sunshine, and trying to slow down and take on less. In the past, the 47-year-old actress expressed concern about winning particular roles and being regarded in a specific way. Today, in her forties, she enjoys the “I don’t care” that comes with becoming older.
Witherspoon tells Harper’s Bazaar-
“I think you start to realize there’s a finite amount of time that you have to accomplish what you want to accomplish in this world and that worrying about other people’s opinions of you is a waste of your precious time. It’s a liberation in your 40s to feel free of other people’s opinions. I mean, they’re always there. They just don’t matter as much to you, and it’s a great feeling.”
