In our task to complete the Gallery we move on from the infamous love triangle period, and onto the critically acclaimed ‘Reese-renaissance’ period! Today the Mud section has been completed, with a few additional stills, trailer screencaps and posters. This was an enjoyable, slow-burning film with great performances, writing, directing, cinematography etc. Although Reese’s role was small, the film is definitely worth a watch – I love that Reese changed direction with her career and took this role, working with the fantastic Jeff Nichols and such a varied cast. I hope she does more like this in the future….
We continue our task of completing the Gallery with updates for This Means War, the final movie in Reese’s ‘love triangle era’. We’ve added a few new stills, lots of posters, screencaptures from the fun B-Roll footage, additional promotional photoshoot pictures, and more. This was a fun movie, but we didn’t like Reese’s character and the ending was very unsatisfying! We hope Reese and Tom Hardy work together again…
Reese graces the cover of the new February issue of US Vogue! The magazine features a story on her as the “moral compass of Hollywood” (which is a great title for her!), and features an extensive new interview and a new photoshoot – including a photo with Betty and Ava. It’s a fantastic article exploring how Reese’s career has developed, and focuses mostly on her recent move into production and business; there are also some great quotes from Cheryl Strayed, Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. I also liked reading about where her Oscar is, and that she has hardbound copies of scripts from her movies!
Read the full article below, and find high quality photos from the cover and the shoot in our Gallery. We’ll have scans for you soon. Make sure you pick up a copy when you can!
Reese Witherspoon: Activist, Advocate, Hollywood’s Moral Compass
The first time Reese Witherspoon found herself suspended from school was in third grade, when she was caught running a custom-barrette business from her desk. (She painted store-bought barrettes and sold them at a profit; when her paint pens leaked onto her desk, she was apprehended.) Another time was during her junior year, at a private girls’ high school in Nashville, when she complained to her English teacher that the work they were doing wasn’t challenging enough. Witherspoon was in many ways a model student—good grades, popular, a soccer player and cheerleader—but she also had a reputation for telling teachers what they were doing was wrong.
“I always tended to be outspoken with my opinions,” she says. “Whether they were appropriate or not.”
More than two decades later, Witherspoon is still fighting the status quo. Insofar as Hollywood is an extreme version of high school, a fishbowl of fragile egos, insecurity, and often-misdirected sexual energy, she has taken it upon herself to be a champion of the overlooked and the underestimated. She may still bear the imprint of the perky-blonde roles that kept her in American-sweetheart mode for the better part of two decades, but something’s changed beneath the surface. Witherspoon has become a formidable businesswoman, launching a company that has a hand in just about every imaginable sector of contemporary media, and she’s become a formidable activist as well, fighting for greater representation in Hollywood of people of color, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and—most of all—women.
“The idea is to put women at the center of the story,” Witherspoon says, sitting barefoot and in jeans in the kitchen of her sunny, sprawling Los Angeles home as her three dogs—a German shepherd named Nash (short for Nashville), a French bulldog named Pepper, and a lab named Hank—amble and snort among the rooms. “I was sick of making movies where I was the only female lead on the set. I was sick of seeing scripts where there was one female role, badly written, and yet every actress in town wanted the part because there was nothing else.”
There is perhaps no greater example in the history of television of putting women at the center than Big Little Lies, the HBO sensation that picked up eight Emmys in 2017. Witherspoon executive-produced the series with Nicole Kidman, with whom she also stars alongside Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley. In the second season, which airs in late spring, Meryl Streep will bring the show’s number of female leads to six.
HBO aired a new teaser trailer for its 2019 shows during last night’s Golden Globe Awards – and it included new footage from Big Little Lies season 2! We see Meryl Streep pleading to know what happened to her son, and the 5 leading ladies in a line-up. Have a watch…
‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 ‘Looking at June’ Premiere, Nicole Kidman Says
Now that HBO has revealed “Game of Thrones” will be returning for its eighth and final season in April — though the official premiere date is still TBD — it’s high time the premium cabler tells “Big Little Lies” fans when they’ll get Season 2 of their fave series. Except maybe “BLL” star Nicole Kidman already beat them to the punch.
Kidman — who plays Celeste on HBO’s adaptation of the Liane Moriarty novel — made a quick appearance alongside her husband on CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen” Dec. 31, and dropped what she believes to be the premiere month for the sophomore installment of “Big Little Lies.”
“June, I think. We’re looking at June,” Kidman said when Cohen asked her when we can expect the second season to premiere. “We’re still in the midst of editing it, but, um, thanks for asking ’cause we’re glad that people are excited about it.”
HBO declined TheWrap’s request for comment on a June premiere date for Season 2.
Steve Carell mentioned the upcoming Morning Show TV Project that he’s working on with Reese and Jennifer Aniston, in a recent interview to promote his new film. He talks a bit about the genre of the show and the producers!
You’re also returning to TV, alongside Jennifer Aniston returning to TV. This new world of programming for Apple seems so interesting because they’re lining up some great content, even though we haven’t gotten to see any of it yet. So, what was it about that TV series that reeled you back in.
CARELL: It’s very well written, and there’s some co-stars and great directors. I didn’t really think twice about it. I don’t want to give too much away about the content itself, but I thought it was smart and interesting, and equal parts dramatic and funny. It doesn’t fall into a category. You can’t call it a drama or a comedy. It straddles that, which is interesting. And the actors that are in it are great. I’ve shot three episodes so far, and it’s been really wonderful. When somebody suggested it and I was offered the part, I knew that Reese [Witherspoon] and Jennifer were producers and in it, and all of the producers involved are very high caliber. They’ve got a good pedigree, as they say. You never know, but with all of that, you hope it turns out well. So far, it feels really good.
Do you feel nervous about such a new avenue for content, or do you feel like they know what they’re doing?
CARELL: I don’t really think about that side of it, but as a company, Apple seems to work things out quite well for themselves. They’re an excellent corporation, and they make more good choices than bad, that’s for sure. I have a lot of faith in Apple, as a company, but you never know. You never know how stuff is gonna turn out, but it’s all good intentions. The scripts were very smart and didn’t take an easy approach to some of the themes that they were looking into, which is something. David Frankel came in to direct two of the episodes, and Mimi Leder, who’s great, is directing a bunch of them, as well. They’re getting really good directors to come in. I have high hopes. We’ll see. It’s been really fun.
A couple of days ago Reese interviewed Michelle Obama on the Denver stop of Michelle’s ‘Becoming’ book tour. The two-some spoke about Michelle’s career, family, and being the President’s wife at the city’s Pepsi Centre. Find an article and social media posts from the conversation further down this post, as well as short video footage within a fan’s vlog (fast forward toward the end of the video to see the actual footage). And we have a few photos in our Gallery.
Obama recounted Inauguration Day in January 2017, when she said she was “feeling the weight of all that we had done being flipped over” as she listened to Trump give a speech on a stage that lacked diversity.
She also told actress Reese Witherspoon, who interviewed her on stage at the event, that it was “surreal” to hear “some people literally taking my voice as their own.”
She did not refer specifically to first lady Melania Trump repeating a paragraph of an earlier Michelle Obama speech in her 2016 remarks at the Republican National Convention. But Witherspoon joked in response that a “very similar person” also stole the voice of her fictional character from “Legally Blonde,” an apparent reference to a speech President Trump made in 2017.
