Reese Witherspoon Tells Vogue, 'I Don't Wake Up to Make Movies'Reese Witherspoon's life may seem like a fairy tale, but at the end of the day, she's just Mom, not a movie star.

The actress, who graces the cover of Vogue's May issue, says that despite her hectic schedule, she feels that she's achieved a peaceful balance in her life.

Witherspoon, who stars in the upcoming 'Water for Elephants' opposite Robert Pattinson, says of her trade, "You know, it can be a crazy life. Sometimes you feel like you are on a speeding train and you just don't know where it's going. You can start to lose your identity and what it is that you are really working for."

While she's eager to continue her career in the movie industry, it's not the allure of the limelight that gets her out of bed in the morning.

"I don't wake up to make movies," she says. "I wake up to have a wonderful family and to cultivate the best life for all of us, and it's great to now have a partner in that," she says of husband Jim Toth, whom she married in late March. "Being a parent to me is such a great privilege; that I get to chaperone these beautiful little souls through life."
