Reese Witherspoon Reveals How She's Stayed Relevant In Hollywood: 'Funny Doesn't Sag'

Reese Witherspoon is getting candid.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the actress revealed exactly what she's done to stay relevant in Hollywood.

It's funnier than you'd think.

Reese Witherspoon is one funny lady.

Whenever she's not making us laugh with her many movies and TV shows, she's crushing the social media game.

Like the time she recreated this iconic scene with her "Friends" sister, Jennifer Aniston!

Reese's production company, Hello Sunshine, even made The Morning Show, the award-winning TV show that brought the Green sisters back together again.

Or when she hilariously turned to her 15-year-old son, Deacon, to learn about the social media app, TikTok.

This. Is. Everything.

"@deaconphillippe tries to teach me how to Tik Tok 😂 I think I nailed it...," she captioned the hilarious vid, which you can watch here.

Of course, she's played some funny and iconic characters onscreen as well.

She tore up the film scene in the early '00s with so many hits, including Legally Blonde, Sweet Home Alabama, and Four Christmases.

And now, in a new interview with "Vanity Fair," Reese even revealed that being funny has helped her stay relevant all these years.

“I always had a thing about exploiting sexuality. When I came up in the business, there were all these men’s magazines we were told to cater to," she began.

"I was never in Maxim. I was never picked as a GQ girl, and I’m okay with that because that’s not how I wanted to be viewed."

You do you, girl!

She continued:

"That’s not how I see myself. I always say, ‘Funny doesn’t sag.’ I always just wanted to be funny, you know?"

She went on to say that you can't be "rendered obsolete" if you remain being funny.

"Guess what gets rendered obsolete? Your boobs go south, your face goes south, your [expletive] goes south, but you can always be funny."

Reese even named some of the women who she looks up to for this.

"And those are my idols, my heroes—Goldie, Holly Hunter, Diane Keaton, Nancy Meyers—smart and funny.”

These are important lessons that Reese has made sure to pass onto to her daughter, Ava.

While on the subject of women's sexuality, she said, “I can tell you what my daughter would say. Why should a woman have to sublimate her own sexuality, because that’s not her responsibility, the way she’s viewed, right?"

"Her sexuality shouldn’t be diminished because she’s having a conversation about consent."

She continued: "You should be able to be sexual, to display your sexuality, because consent is consent, no matter what.”

During the interview, Reese also opened up about a very difficult subject from her past.

She revealed that she was "assaulted" and "harassed" in her early days working as an actor.

"Bad things happened to me. I was assaulted, harassed. It wasn’t isolated," she said.

"I recently had a journalist ask me about it. She said, 'Well, why didn’t you speak up sooner?' And I thought, that’s so interesting to talk to someone who experienced those things and then judge them for the way they decide to speak about them."

She continued: "You tell your story in your own time when you’re ready. But the shame that she tried to put on me was unreal, and then she wrote about how selfish I was for not bringing it up sooner."

"There wasn’t a public reckoning 25 years ago when this stuff happened to me. There wasn’t a forum to speak about it either."

When the #MeToo movement happened, she was happy to see that social media had become a safe space for victims.

"Social media has created a new way for people to express themselves that I didn’t have."

"That’s the great strength in power and numbers. I think we have a lot of judgment and that’s unfortunate because we’re all tenderfooted in these new times."

She continued:

"We’re trying to find our identity. That’s what I really like about 'The Morning Show.'"

We're so proud of how far the actress has come, both professionally and personally!
