“Extra’s” Terri Seymour caught up with Reese Witherspoon at the “March of Dimes Celebrates Babies" event, where she accepted the Grace Kelly Award.

The new mom dished the holidays, the possibility of working with her friend Mindy Kaling – and getting her body back to normal after having son Tennessee James in September.

Witherspoon explained, “I don’t’ know if I’m bouncing back. I’m slowly crawling back. You know all of your joints feel wobbly and your head is sort of confused.”

She said, “You just have to be gentle and patient with yourself and just sort of you know… slowly get back to your health.”


Reese gushed about her two-month old. “He’s great, he’s wonderful, healthy, happy, so great.” For his first Christmas, Reese said she is looking forward to building gingerbread houses and making their own ornaments.

Terri also asked Reese, who recently had lunch with Mindy Kailing, about working on her show, “The Mindy Project.” Reese said, “Oh, I would love to. I love Mindy, she’s so smart… it’s so great to have such a talented female writer out there, so hopefully we’re going to collaborate soon. I would love it.”
