(Newser) – Reese Witherspoon quashed rumors of an impending engagement to Jake Gyllenhaal in a recent interview with Parade magazine. “I don’t know how I feel about marriage,” she said. “Obviously, I’m not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again.” The actress also discussed her relationship with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, Hollywood’s treatment of women, and turning 30.

The Oscar-winning actress said she “spent a lot of my 20s just trying to make other people happy, rather than trying to figure out if doing that made me happy,” and is still trying to reconcile her feelings about her divorce. Now that she’s turned 30, she has “discovered the importance of even 15 or 30 minutes a day where it is just me.”
