Reese Witherspoon strikes a pose for the new issue of Vogue and looks pretty darn gorg doin' it!

In the interview with the mag, Reese finally opens up about her current main squeeze, Jake Gyllenhaal, who she calls "very supportive."

"Suffice it to say, I'm very happy in life, and I'm very lucky to have a lot of really supportive people around me who care very much for me, and, you know, that's all you can hope for in life," the actress adds. "I am very blessed in that way."

Reese also opened up a bit about her divorce from Ryan Phillippe. The mom of two says that her new movie, Four Christmases, about children of divorced parents dealing with the holidays, opened her eyes to a situation she will soon find herself in for the first time.

"There are so many dynamics that people deal with all the time, and you don't really see it in movies very much," she said. "You don't see the blended-family Christmas very much. And it really is a complication in a lot of people's lives now. How do you see your mother and your father and not hurt anyone's feelings?" she continued. "You know, I didn't grow up like that. I mean, my parents are still married, and my grandparents stayed married, but it's a situation my own children will have to deal with, so it was of interest to me."

As for her co-star in the flick, Vince Vaughn, Reese attests to the fact that he really is as hysterical as we think.

"Vince is the funniest person I've ever worked with in my entire life," she said. "There were days when we were shooting things, I would laugh so hard it would ruin the take, and I was afraid I was going to pee on myself, it was so funny."

Comedy "is what I want to see at the movies these days," Reese said. "Life is frickin' hard, man. I want to go to the movies and see people happy and enjoying themselves and having some fun. I've made other kinds of movies, for sure. But it's pretty apparent to me that's what people want. That's what I want. I enjoy those kinds of movies."

Amen, sister! That's what I'm always trying to tell my husband -- a little cheesy, feel-good romantic comedy is almost always the way to go.
