Hollywood beauty Reese Witherspoon is delighted to be living in London at the moment - because actors are not given special treatment there.

Witherspoon - who is five months pregnant with her second child - is currently filming an adaptation of Vanity Fair in the British capital and can't believe how calm the natives are about celebrities.

She says, "It's been great coming here for a few months because there's not as much pressure on us. It's not the same kind of celebrity that we have in America. It's more relaxed.

"I can go to the grocery store. I can take my kid to the park, and nobody cares. It's an escape. And I enjoy the idea here that actors and actresses are really just working people, they're part of a crew that get movies made, and there's not a lot of special treatment."
