Glamour Reese Witherspoon is an unofficial fansite dedicted to supporting and promoting the career of Reese Witherspoon. We have no contact with Ms Witherspoon or her family or management. No copyright infringement is intended through the use of content within this website ...
“And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.”
Elle Woods is right, there’s no beating pink, and so we are celebrating her with her favourite colour in our new layout here at Glamour Reese Witherspoon! It’s been 10 years (can you believe it!!?) since our favourite blonde lawyer lit up our screens in Legally Blonde, released exactly 10 years ago this past Friday. The character has become somewhat iconic in modern cinema, and the film catapulted Miss Witherspoon right onto Hollywood’s A-List, and she’s been at the top of that list ever since. It also gained her a legion of new fans, including many of you reading this, I expect. It seemed fitting to celebrate the anniversary of the film with a super-fun themed layout here, and I think Mycah did Elle justice. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page for more Elle!
Not only does Legally Blonde celebrate 10 years this year, but so does this very site you are looking at. Yep, Glamour Reese Witherspoon was created by our lovely friend April all the way back in 2001. I think it goes without saying what an incredible job she did building this site up and creating an online haven for Reese fans to enjoy, and I know it inspired me to start my own fansites. GRW has always heightened my love for Reese, so I wanted to mark that, too, with this special layout. But more on the site’s anniversary later in the year (I think it started in November, to be exact).
Enjoy the new layout – comment on it if you wish! – and check back throughout the coming week for as many updates as I can fit in, including content, photos and scans.
Elle:Here it is! Professor Callahan:It’s pink… Elle:Oh! And it’s scented! I think it gives it a little something extra, don’t you think? Ok, well, see you next class!
Continuing our massive Water For Elephants promotion catch-up (make sure you don’t miss our first huge update below!), I’ve now started to work on the remaining public appearance photos.
I’ve added another 50+ gorgeous HQs from the Water For Elephants press conference – these are a real treat! Over to Paris, and we have 20+ additional HQs from the premiere held there. From the Spanish events, we have 40-odd more HQs from the Barcelona premiere, plus I’ve finally added photos from the press conference held in that city the day after the premiere. I’ve also added photos from the two events held in Sydney – a fun-looking photocall with Tai the elephant, and a red carpet premiere. Reese looked casually cute at the Sydney photocall, but she really turned on the glitz for the premiere, looking stunning in a little blue dress and gorgeous curly hair – I love this look on her! It’s probably my favourite of the Water For Elephants promotion, alongside the New York premiere.
Speaking of the New York premiere, I’m still sorting through photos from that and the London premiere, as there are more photos from them both than you would believe! I’m hoping to get them added slowly over the next week, so keep an eye on the Gallery for them.
Photos from the most recent events Reese has attended are coming tomorrow/Monday…
Finally, an update, I hear you say! To try to stop being the world’s worst webmaster, I have some massive updates for you featuring all the remaining photos from the Water For Elephants promotion a couple of months ago.
Part 1 of the massive update is full of photoshoots, magazine scans, and tv appearance screencaptures. First up we have additional photos from the shoot Reese did for the LA Times earlier this year. We have over 100 new magazine scans/clippings for you to browse through, most of which are thanks to Mirik. Big thanks goes to our friend Mia for gorgeous scans from a recent issue of Madame Figaro which featured a new photoshoot image of Miss Reese. I’ve also added images from Reese’s Vogue cover spread.
In the TV Appearances section we now have screencaps from all of Reese’s Water For Elephants tv interviews – the new additions are from Conan, Ellen, Le Grand Journal and The Graham Norton Show. Reese looked so beautiful on each show (particularly Conan, I think!) and was her usual funny and animated self, so there are lots of super-fun expressions in there. I’ve also added HQ stills from the Ellen and Graham Norton appearances.
This makes close to 2,000 new photos, so you have a lot of beautiful Reese to browse!! Catch-up appearance photos are on the way … Oh, and maybe something else a little bit special

The studio has picked up the romantic comedy pitch “Who Invited Her?” about a woman who crashes a bachelor party getaway.
Wedding-themed movies are all the rage in Hollywood — see the success of Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part 2 — and now DreamWorks and Reese Witherspoon are trying a knot.
DreamWorks has picked up Who Invited Her? a romantic comedy pitch from Sascha Rothschild that has Witherspoon attached to star and produce. Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff will also produce via their Krasnoff Foster Entertainment banner.
The story centers on a woman who crashes a bachelor party getaway.
Rothschild wrote How to Get Divorced by 30, based on her article in LA Weekly. The project is set up Universal.
Witherspoon is a producer on This Means War, in which she also stars. The movie, which also stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, will be released in February.
To date, the Johnny Depp-Penélope Cruz vehicle Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the biggest worldwide box-office hit of 2011, having grossed $623.71m. In North America, the top movie is Fast Five, the fifth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, which has scored $196.02m. Rio, Thor, and The Hangover Part II have also performed remarkably well.
As I mentioned in a previous post, apart from two late 2010 releases, Oscar winners The King’s Speech and Black Swan, 2011 moviegoers continue to ignore dramas about human relationships. At no. 20, Francis Lawrence’s Water for Elephants, starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, and Christoph Waltz is the sole drama — outside the action/thriller/horror genres — among the year’s top 25 releases.
In North America, Water for Elephants has taken in $54.4m after five weeks. Internationally, the $38m-budgeted circus drama has just passed the $50m milestone after adding $3.7m this weekend as per The Hollywood Reporter. Total to date: $50.7m. Water for Elephants has thus passed the $100m milestone, cuming at $105.1m worldwide.
As of May 22, Water for Elephants’ top overseas markets were: Australia with $6.85m, Germany with $5.75m, France with $5.39m, the United Kingdom with $5.19m, and Mexico with $2.73m. The film also earned more than $1m in Brazil (up to May 15), Italy (despite a slow start), Russia/CIS, Spain, and Sweden.
For comparison’s sake: Reese Witherspoon’s previous star vehicle, James L. Brooks’ $120m comedy How Do You Know, collected only $30m in the US/Canada and $17.49m internationally earlier this year. Its top foreign markets were Germany ($3.11m), Australia ($2.73m), and Spain ($1.62m).
Robert Pattinson’s previous non-Twilight Saga vehicle, the romantic drama Remember Me, went on to gross $19m in North America and $36.96m internationally in 2010. Remember Me’s top international markets were the United Kingdom/Ireland ($5.49m), France ($3.53m), and Russia/CIS ($3.48m).
As posted about last night, Reese attended the Barcelona premiere of Water For Elephants. I’ve now added lots more photos, most of which are in HQ! I’m also posting a bunch of videos from the event, which you can view further down this post.
Pics from today’s press conference coming up in a little while, or tomorrow, depending on time.
REESE Witherspoon admits it was “a little scary” having to cut her hair for new movie Water For Elephants.
The Oscar winning actress had the option of wearing a wig to play her platinum blonde character but instead spoiled her own luscious locks.
“I debated about whether or not I was going to wear a wig,” says Reese.
“Ultimately, after lots of discussion and screen-testing, I decided, ‘I’m just going to cut my hair. I’m just going to dye it white. I’m just going to do it.’ It was really transforming for me if a little scary. In the end I didn’t even recognize myself.”
Reese recently admitted her Hollywood stardom hasn’t come without a price.
“Sometimes I will sit in the car and cry,” she said.
“Because I can’t get out. That’s the only thing: I mourn the loss of my privacy.
“With whatever I’ve lost, I’ve gained tenfold in life experience.”
REESE Witherspoon has poured scorn on rumors an elephant farted in her face while making new movie Water For Elephants.
The Oscar winning actress says she was stunned to read that she had supposedly endured smelly situation for almost a minute while filming the romantic drama.
“It’s not true at all,” says Reese. “I love that that story came about but I don’t know where that came from.”
Meanwhile, Reese has revealed she wore cowboy boots on her wedding day.
The Legally Blondeactress — who married Hollywood agent Jim Toth at her ranch in Ojai, California, in March — admitted while she wore a pair of skyscraper Jimmy Choo heels during the ceremony, she was quick to kick them off in favor of something more comfortable at the reception.
“I danced for four hours until I had to put cowboy boots on,” she said. “I changed into cowboy boots. From those awful uncomfortable shoes.”
The 35-year-old star — who has two children, Ava, 11, and Deacon, eight, from her marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe — also revealed she was nervous about throwing her wedding bash, as she doesn’t like being the center of attention at events.
“I don’t like having birthday parties. I like going to parties,” she said. “I just don’t like it when it’s about me. Which is so bizarre but then once I’m there, I’m having the best time.”
