Reese Witherspoon on the December 2016 Cover InStyle Magazine

Reese Witherspoon is enjoying some success with her clothing Draper James and she is the December 2016 cover star for InStyle magazine. On the cover which was shot by Thomas Whiteside, Reese is wearing a ARMANI PRIVE dress which was accessorized with MESSIKA, CHANEL, DE BEERS and TIFFANY & CO jewelry. In the issue, she talks being a working mother, choosing who she works, her inspiration and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview which was conducted by Dolly Parton. For more on her feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand on November 11th.

On her inspiration:
When I was probably 5 years old, I wanted to be Dolly Parton. I was skipping around the blacktop at school by myself, and my P.E. teacher said, 'Why aren’t you playing the game [with the other kids]?' I said, 'Well, I’m not going to play the game because, Ms. Wright, I’m going to be Dolly Parton when I grow up.

On choosing who she works with:
I think that’s another good part of getting older. I’ve realized that life is too short to spend my time with anybody who doesn’t appreciate me, treat me with respect, or bring value to the relationship. I’m much more confident now, and I feel like I have the ability to say, Nope, I don’t want to work with that person.

On her clothing line Draper James:
It’s a new chapter for me starting a business, going around passing the hat, and promoting it all over the place. It’s a different experience, but I’m enjoying learning something new. I’ve been acting for about 25 years, and I still love it, but I like the challenge of trying something else too. I find there are a lot of people talking about New York and Los Angeles, but there’s a whole world out there in between, and that’s who I like to tell stories about and make products for – people who love the life they have and have a sense of style that’s uniquely their own.

On being a working mother:
I’m just trying to hold on, trying to make it through. My older kids help with the little one. It’s nice to have a big family.” “My mom worked, and I think it’s good for kids to see women working and being successful. I think it’s going to make them hard workers because they see that I don’t get much sleep. But I love what I do. I want them to grow up with passion. This is the one life you get, and you have to live it to the very end.
