Witherspoon: Husband Not Jealous Of Money

Hollywood starlet REESE WITHERSPOON insists her hunky actor husband RYAN PHILLIPPE bears no envy for the multi-million paycheques she earns.

Although the actress - who's expecting her second child with the CRUEL INTENTIONS star - admits they have "fights like any married couple", she says they often laugh about the massive difference in their salaries.

Witherspoon reportedly collected a cheque for $16 million (GBP10 million) for hit sequel LEGALLY BLONDE 2: RED, WHITE AND BLONDE.

She says, "Ryan made a joke about it at the last ACADEMY AWARDS (MAR03). We had to announce one of the winners, so he handed me the envelope and said, 'You open it - you make more money than I do.'

"Ryan has a great sense of humour and it was our way of bringing to light an issue that everyone has been talking about behind our backs as if we don't know about it.

"I thought it was the perfect way to let the world know that, yes, we know about this, too! And it really doesn't matter to us. He's incredibly supportive of me, as I am of him.

"We work as a team and the bottom line about the money issue is that it's part of our job. What's really important to both of us isn't who earns how much, but how we get along with each other within the family. And we get along just fine."
