Reese Witherspoon Isn't Ruling Out Running for Political Office
"Our standards have become very low in this country."
Witherspoon 2040? I mean, not no …
"I think you'd get a lot of the vote,” Bateman told the Oscar winner.
“Yeah, I mean our standards have become very low in this country,” she replied with a laugh.
But jokes aside, Witherspoon isn’t ruling out a future political run. “I wouldn't say never, because I don't know where I'm going to be when I'm, you know, 65,” she said.
Though any potential campaign is at least a decade or two off, Witherspoon made her position clear. "I think we need better representation and balance," she explained. "Women are 50 percent of the population, but we're not 50 percent of the representation in government, which is bizarre, particularly when they're adjudicating over our bodies.”
"And the lack of representation of people of color, who make up a large, almost majority of this country. What about balance, you know? Just yin and yang. Male, female balance.”
The mother of three encouraged her followers to vote about two weeks ago, sharing a photo of herself and her mail-in ballot. “Feels good to exercise my right to VOTE,” she captioned the image.
Tracy Flick would be oh so proud.
