reese witherspoon, instyle, farmIn the latest issue of InStyle magazine, Reese Witherspoon opens up on her life outside of the Hollywood spotlight — saying that her and boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal enjoy a bit of downtime in the country.

“We spend the weekends outside L.A, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse,” she says. “We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee.”

Granted, California is no substitute for the real thing — and Witherspoon admits it can be tough. “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 L.A.—I gravitate toward them.”

Witherspoon is on the cover of InStyle‘s November issue, on sale Friday.
