Reese Witherspoon On Her 'Part Time Job' & Life With Jake Gyllenhaal

Reese Witherspoon is one of Hollywood’s most sought after actresses, but sometimes work takes its toll.

"My mom, who’s a nurse, called me the other day when I was really stressed out from working a 15-hour day," Reese told InStyle’s November 2009 issue. "She was like, 'Yeah, but think of it as a part-time job.' And I thought, 'That’s actually right.' It puts it in perspective. I work incredibly hard for three months, but then I get a break. It’s about really enjoying my time off."
