Comments Off on President Obama to Paul Rudd: I Loved You in ‘I Love You, Man’
It’s too bad Paul Rudd is married (for multiple reason) because if he had needed a best man in his wedding it sounds like President Barack Obama would be more than happy to step in!
While Paul was filming How Do You Know with Reese Witherspoon in Washington D.C., the co-stars were able to get a private tour of the White House.
As part of Entertainment Weekly’s cover story, Reese recalls what happened while they were on their tour.
“While we were getting a tour, we got a message from the Oval Office that Obama wanted to say hi to us,” she begins the story.
“We went to the Oval Office, and there was Hillary Clinton having a meeting with Joe Biden. It was insane,” she says. “Then Obama came out and he turned to Paul and said, ‘I loved you in I Love You, Man.’ ”
“I grabbed Paul and I was like, ‘Are you freaking out right now?’ ” she remembers. “He’s like, ‘I’m freaking out!’ We were so tongue-tied it was ridiculous.”
“Obama was like, ‘What are you guys doing in town?’ I started talking about the movie and I was like, ‘We’re doing a movie and… uh, I’m playing a character, who, uh…I’m working with Owen, uh…Owen…’ I could not remember Owen’s last name,” Reese explains.
“And Paul goes, ‘Wilson!’ Like it was a party game.”

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon breaks down watching herself on screen
Reese Witherspoon broke down in tears on the set of upcoming movie “This Means War” when she was shown playback footage of her performance, because she found her acting “horrifying.”
The “Legally Blonde” star admits she struggles to watch herself onscreen and rarely ever revisits her projects once filming wraps – but she made a fool of herself in front of director McG after he called her over in between takes to review certain scenes.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, “I can’t even watch playback of myself on a movie. McG was showing me some footage of ‘This Means War,’ and I just went apoplectic. I couldn’t talk, I started to cry.
“I don’t watch any movie I’m in. What’s enjoyable about that? It’s horrifying! I’ll see it in a dark room one time with my managers, who I’ve been with for 18 years, and we’ll talk about it for 10 minutes afterwards – and that’s it…”
And Witherspoon blames her insecurities for her refusal to watch her own takes: “I’ll just focus on something stupid, like, ‘I hate my laugh. Why did I smile?’ Sometimes I look at myself and think, ‘Dude, I have the biggest, goofiest smile on earth.'”
Female athletes aren’t typically the subject of American movies. In a culture where sex, action, and 3-D sells tickets and wins big at the box office, it’s hard to imagine an athletic heroine winning over an American audience. But in the new romantic comedy, “How Do You Know,” Academy Award-winning writer and director, James L. Brooks, takes a risk and places a professional woman softball player at the center of his plot.
In the film, Reese Witherspoon plays the protagonist, Lisa, who is consumed with her sport and at 31-years-old has no plans to get married and have a family. When she is cut from the national team because she is deemed too old to play, Lisa finds solace in a casual relationship with Matty (Owen Wilson), a major league pitcher who is so much of a womanizer that he keeps an assortment of new women’s clothing in his closet as emergency morning-after attire for his conquests.
At the same time, Lisa goes on a blind date with George (Paul Rudd), a businessman who runs a company started by his father, Charles, (Jack Nicholson). George is recently the subject of a federal investigation and now a nervous wreck. Unemployed and emotional, Lisa soon finds herself in the midst of a love triangle with two equally handsome and complicated male suitors and she wonders if she’s even the marrying type.
Sunday afternoon in the basement of the Ritz Carlton in Manhattan, Reese Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd, Kathryn Hahn and James L. Brooks gathered for a press conference to promote their new non-traditional romantic comedy, in an intimate and ornate room with chandeliers and impressionist paintings on the wall.
Witherspoon, a petite blonde, sat sandwiched between Wilson and Rudd, and instantly broke the ice, admitting, “I’m really not that athletic. [Brooks] wanted … [me] to work with coaches and train so I did that for four months [and] three hours a day. … I’m still not any good at softball but I learned a lot.”
Reese Witherspoon’s two children were left horrified when they saw their mother knocked to the ground in a freak softball accident, which left her with a black eye and a bloody nose.
The Hollywood actress was practicing for her role in new movie “How Do You Know” last year by playing a game of softball at home with her family and friends.
But the game ended in agony for Witherspoon after she was hit in the face with the ball.
The “Legally Blonde” star fell to the ground and was left covered in blood, much to the horror of her daughter, Ava, and son, Deacon, who both witnessed the shocking injury.
Witherspoon tells Access Hollywood, “I got popped in the eye. I got a black eye. Oh, I got a bloody nose… I was just practicing at home with friends and stuff and I just, you know, throw to keep my arm in shape and stuff…
“They (my kids) were there when I got it and I hit the ground – that freaked them out a little bit.”
But Witherspoon admits her kids later felt proud of their mom’s wounds, adding: “They thought it was cool. It’s like I’m the only mom at school with a black eye!”
“Extra’s” resident bad boy Steve Santagati chatted with actress Reese Witherspoon about her new romantic comedy “How Do You Know,” and got Reese to open up about some of her worst dating experiences.
Reese co-stars in the film with Owen Wilson, and said that she dated a guy similar to Wilson’s character — the type of player who has a bathroom drawer full of toothbrushes.
“I have seen the toothbrush drawer,” Witherspoon told Steve about spending the night at an unnamed ex’s home. “I woke up with the toothbrushes and it was horrifying.”
That’s not the worst of the actress’ dating nightmares. Reese said she once “had an experience where I opened up the closet looking for a washing machine or something, and it was like a line of bikinis… different sizes of bikinis with the tags on them. I was like ‘Oh God’.”
Witherspoon has dated her share of A-list men, including “Love & Other Drugs” star Jake Gyllenhaal, but the 34-year-old star has moved on — and into the arms of Hollywood agent Jim Toth.
When asked if she would recommend other stars to avoid dating a fellow thespian, Reese replied, “I have a whole list of things I’d recommend. I could give a seminar.”
Catch Reese in “How Do You Know,” and we know it opens December 17.
Actress marvels at the ‘fervor’ around her ‘Water for Elephants’ co-star.
Reese Witherspoon became a household name in the late ’90s with a string of scene-stealing turns in films like “Pleasantville” and “Election.” Around the same time, Leonardo DiCaprio was transforming from teen heartthrob to mature Hollywood A-lister, thanks to the nearly $2 billion success of “Titanic.”
Over a decade later, Witherspoon has been thinking back to that pop culture period. It’s the only way she can make sense of the overwhelming popularity of her “Water for Elephants” co-star Robert Pattinson.
“The only thing I can compare it to is when Leo was in ‘Titanic,’ ” she told MTV News while promoting her upcoming movie “How Do You Know.” “It was that kind of fervor about a person. The women lining up outside the set — it was just unbelievable — till 5 o’clock in the morning waiting to just glimpse him.”
The Tennessee set of “Water for Elephants” was basically no different than what happens when the “Twilight” vamp goes anywhere. As director Francis Lawrence told us in the fall, “[E]very day there would be, like, 50 people [staked out] … . [T]here would be people camped out in the hallways of our hotel. All day, all night long, it didn’t matter. People were there to try to catch a glimpse.”
Witherspoon, of course, got an up-close-and-personal glimpse of RPattz, and she was happy to report back to us: “He is extraordinarily attractive. I’m not gonna lie,” she said.
“Robert is such a great guy from a great family,” she explained. “That’s the thing that’s so funny. He’s not really this bad boy; he’s just a great guy and really worked hard on ‘Water for Elephants.’ He really worked long hours, long days. He looks totally different in the movie.”
Reese Witherspoon has revealed her number one turn-off is men correcting her grammar.
The Oscar-winning Tennessee-born actress – who is dating agent Jim Toth – revealed her pet hate at a preview for her new movie James L Brooks’ How Do You Know.
Reese told People: “I had someone correct my grammar on a blind date once, and I knew within the first 10 minutes that the date was over.
“I don’t even remember what I said – I probably said ‘ain’t’.
“Just don’t correct my grammar. I’m from Tennessee. I probably say everything wrong.”
In the film Reese’s character is caught in a love triangle between two men played by Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson.
As well as knowing when she is not in love, Reese claims she now knows when she is.
She told Entertainment Tonight: “I’m old enough to know that I don’t know anything about love or relationships. I just try to go with my instincts and advise other people to do the same.
“My friends are a barometer for my relationships. “I kind of look at them to reflect to me how I seem.”
The 34-year-old mother to daughter Ava, 11, and son Deacon, seven, split from her ex-husband and children’s father Ryan Phillippe in 2007. She dated Jake Gyllenhaal for almost two years until 2009 and began dating Jim in January.
She’s been married to Ryan Phillippe, had a long term relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, and now she’s with Hollywood agent Jim Toth. Reese Witherspoon reveals to ET how she gauges who is right for her relationship-wise.
“I’m old enough to know that I don’t know anything about love or relationships,” she disclosed. “I just try to go with my instincts and advise other people to do the same.”
The ‘How Do You Know’ star did admit that she has a way of determining whether her relationships are going to work out. “My friends are a barometer for my relationships,” she told ET. “I kind of look at them to reflect to me how I seem.”
In her upcoming movie written by Oscar winner James L. Brooks, Reese plays Lisa who is caught in a laughable love triangle. Lisa faces a difficult transition in her life, and jumps into a relationship with the self-centered Matty (played by Owen Wilson). Then she meets George (played by Paul Rudd), a man who’s facing financial ruin and a federal investigation for shady deals made by his father’s (Jack Nicholson) company. ‘How Do You Know’ hits theaters Dec. 17.
