Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon has admitted that it’s sometimes “really difficult” to live so far away from her family.
Reese, 33, lives in LA with her children Ava and Deacon, but she is from Tennessee where her family still live.
However Reese, who is dating actor Jake Gyllenhaal, admitted that she tries to recreate a little bit of the south in California.
She said to InStyle magazine: “We spend the weekends outside LA, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse. We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee.”
However Reese admitted that it doesn’t compare to her old life in the South, she said: “Sometimes it’s really difficult for me, being far away from home. I never imagined that my children wouldn’t grow up next door to my brother’s children.
“Or my mom and dad wouldn’t constantly be around. At least I have a lot of Southern friends in LA - I gravitate toward them.”
