You can take the girl out of the South, but you can’t take the South out of the girl.

Ask New Orleans-born, Tennessee-raised Reese Witherspoon, who tells InStyle magazine all about how she tries to bring a little bit of Dixie to her life in Hollywood.

“We spend the weekends outside L.A, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse,” she says of her life with her kids and her boyfriend, who happens to be Jake Gyllenhaal. “We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee.”
