Caitlyn Jenner: Reese Witherspoon “Never Wanted To Meet Bruce,” But Wants To Meet Me
In a new excerpt from the magazine’s July cover story, Jenner says that people find Caitlyn to be a lot nicer than Bruce Jenner. She shares, “[My mother and I] had a conversation the other day, we were talking about a lot of things, and, you know, she goes, ‘You know what, I think I can have a better relationship with Caitlyn than I can with Bruce.'”
Jenner admits that, previously, her relationship with her mother, Esther, was always a little tense. But since revealing she is transitioning, she says a lot more people are trying to get to know her, including Witherspoon. Jenner goes on to reveal, “Mark, who is the producer on [Diane Sawyer’s ’20/20′] piece, says, ‘Well, I had breakfast with Reese Witherspoon this morning and she couldn’t stop talking about you. All she wants to do is meet you.'” The star adds, “She never wanted to meet Bruce, you know, but Caitlyn it is.”
The former Olympian also says that she hopes older generations will be happy for her, even if they don’t understand her decision to transition. “I hope they all understand that life is very complicated. That [gold medalist they remember] was me in 1976. I did that and I am extraordinarily proud of what I was able to accomplish,” says Jenner. “I make no excuses for it, but that was all of me that did that, it wasn’t just Bruce.” What do you think about Caitlyn Jenner’s comments from her Vanity Fair interview?
