So then I put on rubber boots and I literally get into the trash can and I stomp on the trash and [my son] Deacon thinks it’s so great. We call me ‘the mommy trash compactor.’ Sometimes I’ll sneak in and look at the neighbor’s garbage cans and see if it’s kind of empty. I’ll wait literally until the middle of the night when the children are asleep and I’ll take my extra garbage and I’ll put it in the can.”

–Actress Reese Witherspoon during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

[Ed Note: Someone teach this girl how to compost and recycle. That'll cut her trash habit down in no time.]
