“They’ll look back on it fondly and it will probably promote you having a long, fruitful, delicious relationship with your kids the way you do with your mom, because I know how much you love your mom,” Ross said.
In a talk with Tracee Ellis Ross for Interview Magazine, Witherspoon was asked to name “the last thing that gave you delight.” She responded, “Dancing around my kitchen this morning to different Top 40 songs. I’ll do anything to make people laugh, it’s sad. I’m sure my children find it horrifying, but my mother used to do the same thing.”
“I never expected the kind of relationship that I have with them, but it’s so rewarding to be able to have kids that you can process life with a little bit, and they help me understand the complexities of what it means to be a human now,” she said. “So I’m really, really grateful that these little humans are in my life. Adult humans. I have two adult children now, Tracee. It’s crazy.”
Witherspoon, then, shared that being close with her adult children has been a “rewarding” experience in her life.
