Reese: I steer clear of my own pics

Reese Witherspoon says nobody enjoys seeing pictures of themselves

Reese Witherspoon doesn't enjoy seeing herself in photos and on screen, describing it as "torture".

Despite making four appearances in People's 100 Most Beautiful issues, the mother-of-two told US talk show host Chelsea Handler on her show Chelsea Lately: "I literally think I look bad in every picture."

The How Do You Know star added: "I don't know, who feels good looking at themselves? Nobody, right? It's torture. Why would you want to watch yourself being stupid and pretending to be somebody else?"

Reese, who used to date Jake Gyllenhaal and was married to her Cruel Intentions co-star Ryan Phillippe, has spoken of how she Googles herself when she's feeling in the mood.

"Only in very, very dark moments - moments of pure self-loathing - do I type my name into Google," she told Entertainment Weekly.

"I know what I'm in for. You never read anything positive... You're fat, you're ugly, you're tired, you're worthless, you don't have a career any more, you're a bad actor. It's just an affirmation of every horrible feeling you have about yourself.

"Fortunately, most of the time I'm busy enough that I don't have time to type my name into Google," she added.

There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
