Reese Witherspoon Wary of Marrying Again
Reese Witherspoon, still recovering from her split from Ryan Phillippe, says it's too soon to think about remarrying.

"There are things in my life that are hard to reconcile, like divorce," the mother-of-two tells Parade magazine. "Sometimes it is very difficult to make sense of how it could possibly happen. Laying blame is so easy."

Yet the 32-year-old actress says instead of finding fault, she focuses on moving forward.

"When you make wrong choices, you have to take responsibility for them: 'What part of this do I own?'" she says. "I struggle to figure out what made me make those choices. All I can hope for is that I've learned something from it and won't make the same choices again."

One choice she doesn't know if she'll repeat: Tying the knot.

"Family is all we have in life, but I don't know how I feel about marriage," says the Four Christmases star, who has been dating Jake Gyllenhaal off-and-on since last year. "Obviously, I'm not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again. You sort of reconstitute your family. You find a family with people who come into your life for a reason."
