Reese Witherspoon tell USA Today, all she wants for Christmas is a new chicken coop!
The Oscar-winning actress and star of the upcoming Four Christmases says she’ll stick to family tradition this holiday: a big Southern-style dinner and caroling around the tree. On Christmas Eve, she’ll go to church and watch the annual pageant where her children, Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5, will perform.
But after Santa has arrived and the last bites of Witherspoon’s home-cooked specialties (turnip greens, pecan-coated sweet potatoes and sugar-baked ham) have been eaten, the actress says she’ll retreat to the farm she owns outside Los Angeles.
“We feed the chickens and the pigs — I have two pigs, and boy are they really pigs. They just get down in that mud and roll around,” she says, painting a picture in stark contrast to her neatly pressed Derek Lam dress. “I like getting down in there and working in the garden. Oh, I want someone to build me a good chicken coop … like a man who can just get down there and build it … ooh.”

On November 16 Reese attended a press conference for Four Christmases. She looked absolutely cute! I have added pictures to the gallery.
- Public Events: “Four Christmases” – Press Conference
Last night was the premiere of Reese’s new flick Four Christmases. She truly looked divine in a stunning cocktail dress and vintage tresses.
I’m just on my way to bed when I saw pictures have become available. There is tons so I will be back later with lots of images, stay tuned
Reese is on the cover of the November 23 issue of Parade! Check out the cute photos of Ms. W and the fantastic article below. Reese talks mostly about family, her relationships and children.
“Do I need men? I don’t think it’s about needing men. It’s about love… Everybody needs love, Everyone deserves it.”
“Family is all we have in life, but I don’t know how I feel about marriage, Obviously, I’m not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again. You sort of reconstitute your family. You find a family, with people who come into your life for a reason.”
“It takes perseverance and determination for any young woman to navigate the movie business, It’s deeply offensive when they are objectified, treated like sex toys. It’s so easy to get attention early on in your career when you promote only the sexual side of yourself. It gains you popularity, but it doesn’t mean anything. Five years later, no one knows your name, and you wonder why.
ET’s Steven Cojocaru is with Reese Witherspoon as she reveals whether she has wedding bells in her future!
Cojo caught up with Reese as she was promoting her new film, Four Christmases. In the comedy, mayhem ensues when a couple, played by Reese and Vince Vaughn, visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas Day.
Watch all the holiday catastrophes when Four Christmases hits theaters November 26th!
View the clip under the cut!
Just moments ago, Reese presented Male Vocalist of the Year to winner Kenny Chesney in Nashville, Tennessee.
I have updated the gallery with the first available pictures from the big event, 37 at this time. Miss Reese looked amazing in a beautiful black lace gown, silver accessories and red lips and nails! I must say one of her best looks in a long while! What a vision!
Reese was shown a few times in the audience during the Miley & Billy Ray Cyrus presentation and the Reba McEntire / Brooks & Dunn performance. She looked to be having a total blast! I sadly wasn’t able to make proper clips but I did film her presentation with my camera so the quality is super low but atleast you can her if we don’t get a better clip soon. View it here (Download Mirror #1). Check back tomorrow for more coverage.
- Public Events: The 42nd Annual CMA Awards – Red Carpet
Thanks to Lindsey for informing us that the ET report is available on their website, view it after the cut. It’s actually slightly different than the one that aired so a clip from the actual show is still welcomed!
“I love to cook — I make an applesauce cake every morning on Christmas morning,” says Reese. “There’s a lot of food involved in our Christmas.”
In Four Christmases, in theaters November 26, Reese and Vince find their annual holiday escape plans foiled when fog grounds their San Francisco flight. When their relatives catch wind that they’re still in town, they find themselves forced out of obligation to endure a Christmas get-together with each of their respective divorced parents and wild siblings, played by Robert Duvall, Jon Favreau, Mary Steenburgen, Dwight Yoakam, Tim McGraw, Kristin Chenoweth, Jon Voight and Sissy Spacek.
“Everyone can relate to having to travel and the burden of having to make it to different homes for Christmas,” says Vince. “We have the fun job of raising the stakes and going even further with it to make it funny.”
“I think a lot of us thought a lot about how important it is to accept your family for who they are,” says Reese about making the holiday comedy, adding, “Christmas is always great with kids around, so I’m really lucky I have two great kids. We have our traditions: we get to make cookies for Santa before Christmas Eve, and hang stockings and decorate the tree.”
Tonight is the CMA Awards, Reese has been confirmed as a presenter! Check back this evening for hopefully a lot of coverage!
And tonight also be sure to watch the Entertainment Tonight Four Christmases report. The official film wesbite, www.fourchristmasesmovie.com has also been launched, there are some new stills of Reese and the desktop sections features a new image. Thanks to Lilly for the heads up!
Any clips from the shows are more than welcome, but I’ll do my best to try and get it as always. But no guarantees.
Reese is nominated for Favorite Female Movie Star at the 2009 People’s Choice Awards. She is up against Angelina Jolie and Keira Knightley. As well as Favorite Star 35 & Under. Vote here!
