Reese Witherspoon’s Pity Party: “I Couldn’t Afford A Nanny!”

|

A little over a year after her divorce from Cruel Intentions co-star Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon has decided to let her agony out in the new issue of Elle Magazine. “[The divorce] was very humiliating and very isolating,” she says. Despite “fabulous” boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal, she “still has moments where I’m like, ‘Nothings ever gonna make sense again.’”

Divorce does suck, but Reese’s pity party gets out of control when it comes to her first taste of motherhood. “When I first had Ava, I couldn’t afford [a nanny]. And it was so hard. I was out in Los Angeles, living [away from my family]. I really didn’t have any friends. And I had a baby. No one else who was 22 had a baby. I couldn’t go out.” Both she and Phillippe were making six figure salaries before and after Ava’s birth, collectively making $750,000 for Cruel Intentions alone (according to IMDb). That’s plenty for a nanny, Reese. Most young families don’t even have one parent making that kind of cash.

Just in case her ridiculous claim of poverty wasn’t alienating enough, she also wants you to know she doesn’t worry about her weight. “I’m made of cookies after the holidays. Everything inside me is made of sugar and flour and a little red wine—a lot of red wine.” White whine, too.
