Reese Witherspoon has never shied away from politics in her movies. Cases in point: 1999鈥檚 Election, in which she played an overly enthusiastic high schooler bent on becoming student body president, and 2003鈥檚 Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, which showed Elle Woods taking on Washington, DC. It turns out, though, that her political aspirations may not be entirely fictional.

Sitting down with Glamour for a recent cover story, the mother of three was asked if she would ever consider running for office. Her answer was more positive than you might expect. 鈥淢aybe one day I鈥檒l run for office,鈥 she said thoughtfully. (Senator Witherspoon, perhaps? Or even鈥 President Witherspoon?)

She also revealed, however, that she might be more effective working for someone else in office. 鈥淚 actually have a couple girlfriends that I really think they should run,鈥 she explained. 鈥淚 tell them I would be their campaign manager because I think I鈥檇 be good at managing from the sidelines.鈥 (If we were to run for office, we certainly wouldn鈥檛 say no to having Reese Witherspoon by our side.)

Incidentally, the Big Little Lies star isn鈥檛 the only actress who has pondered a political career in recent months. Sex and the City鈥檚 Cynthia Nixon might be running for New York governor, and even Oprah Winfrey has started to think about聽getting into politics. 鈥淚 never considered the question even a possibility, but then I thought 鈥 Oh. 鈥 I thought, I don鈥檛 have the experience, I don鈥檛 know enough鈥 And now [because of the current president鈥檚 lack of past political experience] I鈥檓 thinking 鈥 Oh,鈥 Winfrey said in March in an interview for Bloomberg鈥檚聽David Rubenstein Show.
