Taking care of some career affairs, Reese Witherspoon showed up at an office building in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon (February 5).
The “Cruel Intentions” cutie looked darling in a maroon blouse teamed with a striped sweater, black skirt and black heeled booties as she scurried inside for her business meeting.
Reese recently took a hit to her real estate portfolio by selling her Libbey Ranch home in Ojai, California for a meager $ 4.98 million, which is $ 900,000 less than she paid for it in 2008.
Designed by architect Wallace Neff, the seven-acre California-style estate boasts 5,000 square feet of living space, four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.
What happens to Reese Witherspoon after her fairy tale has ended? The answer, of course, is either Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde or Jake Gyllenhaal, but despite those perfectly satisfactory replies, the actress is intent on giving us another with Happily Ever After. Witherspoon is reportedly attached to star in the comedy, a pitch that just got picked up by Disney after two years of dealmaking with Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 creator Nahnatchka Khan. The high-concept idea picks up a decade after the events of an archetypical fairy tale, following up to see where the prince and princess are now and learning “that even in fairy-tale land, you have to work to keep your relationship and your life together.” They should try going out of their way to communicate their feelings, starting a chore list, and ass-play.
Maintaining her fabulous physique, Reese Witherspoon went for a run in her Brentwood, California neighborhood yesterday afternoon (May 29).
Joined by a muscular personal trainer, the “Sweet Home Alabama” babe looked cute in a purple tank top with black shorts as she worked up a sweat.
And it sounds like Reese is in the running to play Hillary Clinton in the forthcoming biopic “Rodham,” though there’s competition from Scarlett Johansson, Amanda Seyfried, and Jessica Chastain.
Director James Ponsoldt told press, “They’re all wonderful actresses. We’re very fortune that a lot of really great actors are interested in playing these roles. We’re in an enviable position.”
Getting closer and closer to the due date for her third child, Reese Witherspoon showed no signs of slowing down as she was spotted out and about in Brentwood, CA on Monday afternoon (September 17).
The “Water For Elephants” actress was a casual beauty in a blue shirt dress, fedora, and aviator sunglasses while happily making her way out of a friend’s house after a quick visit.
The week-beginning outing comes amidst just-released reports telling that Reese decided to put her Ojai, CA ranch on the market – with the move coming not long after she lent the pad to “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson following the revelation of then-girlfriend Kristen Stewart’s unfaithfulness.
According to a report by E! News, the 36-year-old actress’ realtor, Billy Rose, says the nine-bedroom, seven-bath home (which is listed for a pricey $ 10 million and about 45 minutes outside of Los Angeles) is “unbelievably magical.”
“It just teleports you to another time and another era,” said Rose. “It’s got this grand but elegant presence.”
Showing off her growing midsection, Reese Witherspoon caught a flight at LAX International Airport yesterday afternoon (July 15).
The “Sweet Home Alabama” babe looked beautiful in a patterned maternity top with cuffed jeans and sandals as she got ready to go through the security checkpoint.
Reese was joined by her husband Jim Toth, so it’s likely they were heading off for a babymoon before their child arrives later this year.
As for her career, Witherspoon is signed on to star in “Gone Girl,” based on the Gillian Flynn novel.
thefilmarchive.org April 5, 2010 With the exception of her animated role in Monsters vs. Aliens, Witherspoon did not appear in a live action film for two years following the release of Four Christmases. Witherspoon told Entertainment Weekly that the “break” was unplanned, stating that, “I just didn’t read anything I liked…There are a lot of really, really, really big movies about robots and things- and there’s not a part for a 34-year-old woman in a robot movie.” Witherspoon returned with three films in 2010, 2011, and 2012, all centered around Witherspoon as a woman caught in a love triangle between two men. In an interview with MTV, Witherspoon jokingly referred to this trio of films as her “love triangle period”. The first film was James L. Brooks’s romantic comedy How Do You Know, which starred Witherspoon as a thirty-something former national softball player who struggles to choose between a philandering baseball star boyfriend (Owen Wilson) and a business executive being investigated for white collar crime (Paul Rudd). The movie was filmed over the summer and fall of 2009 in Philadelphia and Washington, DC, and released on December 17, 2010. The movie was both a critical and box office failure. Despite an over 0 million budget, the film earned only .6 million in its opening weekend, leading the Los Angeles Times to call it “one of the year’s biggest flops”. The movie earned mainly negative reviews from critics, scoring 35% on Rotten Tomatoes with 111 reviews …
Proving her hard work-ethic, a very pregnant Reese Witherspoon was spotted on the set of her newest film “Devil’s Knot” in Atlanta, GA on Saturday afternoon (June 30).
The 36-year-old actress donned an outfit that added years to her appearance as she enjoyed a cold beverage before shooting scenes for the movie.
The “Legally Blonde” beauty stars alongside Colin Firth, Mireille Enos, Kevin Durand and Dan DeHaan in the Atom Egoyan directed film, which follows the story of the 1993 murders of three eight-year-old children and the subsequent trials of three teenagers charged with and convicted of the crimes.
It’s based on the novel “Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three,” and is scheduled to hit theaters some time in 2013.
Through a tragic oversight, somehow this didn’t already happen a decade or so ago, so Lionsgate-Summit has gotten straight to work at the necessary task of putting Reese Witherspoon in an adaptation of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from the Venus, the relationship self-help book that humorously posited men and women are from separate planets. Haha, men and women are very different! Reese Witherspoon will finally prove that, and then hopefully fall in love with a jerk with a heart of gold.
Aiding Witherspoon in her ’90s comedienne-like task is director Bryan Buckley. Though this would be his first feature, he’s apparently quite a force in the commercial world. According to Deadline’s report, he’s directed over 40 of the expensive, sadly-anticipated spots for the NFL’s biggest night, earning him the nickname “King of the Super Bowl.” (At least until Elton John took the title through painful literalness.) More recently, he directed those Apple Siri spots, which relevantly showed how men be usin’ Siri to chill gazpacho, women be usin’ Siri to figure out if falling water is rain.
Production is expected to begin in January, so in the meantime, keep an eye on TBS to make doubly-sure no one already made this, because it still really feels like someone must have. Matthew McConaughey would probably be in it.
