Reese made a live appearance on Good Morning America today, where she talked about her new movie Mud, and spoke openly about her recent arrest. USA Today reported on the interview in the article below, and the video is online now too:
Reese speaks about arrest: ‘One of those nights’
The actress spoke about the arrest for the first time on ‘GMA.’
Reese Witherspoon sat down with George Stephanopoulos for a live, Good Morning America interview Thursday, her first since her April 19 arrest in Atlanta. Her husband, Jim Toth, was charged with DUI. She was charged with disorderly conduct.
Getting right to the news, George asked the actress what happened.
“It’s one of those nights,” said Reese, 37. “We went out to dinner in Atlanta, had one too many glasses of wine. We thought we were fine to drive and we absolutely were not. And it’s just completely unacceptable. And we are so sorry and embarrassed. And we know better.”
Reese graces the cover of the new issue of UK Red magazine, with photos from her 2012 Elle magazine photoshoot alongside what seems to be a new interview. Check out the cover in our Gallery, and the interview below. I’ll be on the hunt for scans!
Reese WitherspoonNew baby, new production company and two of the best roles of her career – Reese Witherspoon is at the top of her game. She talks ambition, inspiration and why her girlfriends keep her sane, with Rosamund Dean.
There are some actresses who are so adored on screen, you almost don’t want to meet them, in case the reality doesn’t live up to the fantasy. Reese Witherspoon is one. This is the woman who taught us the ‘bend and snap’ in Legally Blonde, played Rachel’s little sister in Friends, and won an Oscar as resilient, conflicted June Carter in Walk The Line.
Sitting in the bar of the Beverly Hills Hotel where we are to meet for afternoon tea, I wonder: how can the real Reese Witherspoon possibly compete? Then, she strides in, all impenetrably dark sunglasses and stylish black sweater thrown over a red Carven dress.
For a second, she looks intimidating, but then the glasses come off, that megawatt smile comes on and I relax. She actually is the charming southern belle we know and love, her conversation peppered with ‘y’know’ and ‘y’all’.
‘Yeah, people definitely hug me a lot, and hand me their babies,’ she says of her girl-next-door image. ‘But it’s better than people throwing stuff at me, right? I’m always met with smiles.’
Many of you will probably have read about Reese’s recent trouble with the law. Glamour Reese Witherspoon maintains a strict policy on focussing only on Reese’s professional career, but as Reese has released a statement on the issue we felt it was appropriate to post her words. Unless Reese speaks further on the issue then this will be the only post we make about this. We hope you will respect Reese’s right to privacy at this time.
“Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say, I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.” – Reese Witherspoon
We had a fantastic surprise the other day when Reese herself joined Twitter! This was confirmed by her good friend @ChelseaHandler, and the account was verified soon after. You can follow Reese at @RWitherspoon. Her official website and Facebook page have also been updated lots recently, including with personal photos from the set of her new movie The Good Lie.
Four former Best Actress winners will converge on stage at this year’s Oscar telecast, the show’s producers said Wednesday.
Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon will present an award, although the show’s producers were mum about whether or not they will take the stage together. If they do, it may mean a return to a format that was deployed and favorably received during the 2009 broadcast.
During that show, former winners of acting awards appeared on stage together to give short speeches praising each of the nominees. That was revived in a slightly modified form in the 2010 telecast, in which co-stars or celebrity friends of the various nominees were called on to pay tribute before the winner was announced.
Traditionally, the previous winner of an acting award reads out the nominees and hands out the statue without assistance.
Berry won the Oscar for her performance as a grieving widow in “Monster’s Ball” (2001), Bullock for her work as a feisty housewife and football fan in “The Blind Side” (2009), Kidman for playing a depressive Virginia Woolf in “The Hours” (2002) and Witherspoon for channeling June Carter Cash in “Walk the Line” (2005).
Other previously announced Oscar presenters including Mark Wahlberg, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe and “Marvel’s The Avengers” cast members Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo.
The Oscars will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane and will air on Feb. 24.
Matt Damon hijacked the Jimmy Kimmel Live chat show last night, tied Jimmy to a chair, and welcomed several A-list celebrities to his couch … including Reese! Nicole Kidman was the first to join Matt on his couch, and was then followed by Gary Oldman, Amy Adams, Reese, and then Demi Moore. Watch the hilarious introduction and celebrity segments below…! Screencaps will be added soon.
Last weekend, Reese and her husband attended Sean Penn’s Haiti Benefit Gala in Los Angeles. They were two of many celebrity guests attending the event to raise money for Penn’s Haiti charity. US Weekly says that Reese bid $125,000 for something, although the article further down this post gives a different figure and more details. Check out the HQ photos of Reese watching the auction in the audience in our Gallery:
Mindy Kaling on Reese Witherspoon: “We Want to Work Together!”
It seems as if everyone in Hollywood is dying to guest star on The Mindy Project — Reese Witherspoon included!
At FOX’s Winter TCA Tour cocktail party in Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 8, series creator and star Mindy Kaling chatted with Us Weekly about why she’d love to see Witherspoon make a cameo on the freshman comedy. (The two were first spotted on a lunch date in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood on Dec. 1, 2012.)
“She is a fan of my book which is a really nice thing. She wrote me a nice note about it,” the Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? author, 33, said of Witherspoon, 36. “We want to work together; we’re just trying to think of a good project.”
First off, Happy New Year to all our visitors!! I hope 2013 brings you lots of great things
Reese made a very funny appearance on the Christmas Day episode of the Chelsea Lately Show, with the two friends talking about Reese’s new son, and the possibility of Chelsea babysitting for Reese. Reese then tested Chelsea’s ability to look after a baby! It was a very funny interview – I always love Reese’s interviews with Chelsea because the conversation feels like two friends chatting together on television, and I think we see more of the real Reese than we do elsewhere.
Watch the interview below (I hope it will work for everyone!), and find HD screencaptures from it in our Gallery:
Reese is voicing her support for Naomi Watts and her performance in The Impossible in Entertainment Weekly’s new ‘Consider This’ Oscar featurette. Being a big fan of Naomi Watts myself, I am so excited to see Reese doing this! Reese describes the film so powerfully and eloquently.
To see what Reese is talking about, go and see The Impossible when it hits US theatres on December 21st. Check out international release dates at IMDB.
CONSIDER THIS: Reese Witherspoon’s fan letter to Naomi Watts for ‘The Impossible’
With Academy Awards voting underway, EW’s Prize Fighter is kicking off the “Consider This” series, asking folks with Oscar histories of their own to share their personal favorites of the year. Reese Witherspoon, who won the best actress award in 2006 for Walk the Line, shared with us a letter she wrote to Naomi Watts about her role in The Impossible, playing Maria Belon, a mother of three fighting for her family’s survival in the 2004 tsunami:
I know we don’t know each other well. I hope it’s ok that I am reaching out to you, because I simply could not contain my enthusiasm about your performance in The Impossible.
Wow. Just wow. I was blown away by the film. The story of survival and the incredible images of the tsunami and the performances of the entire cast were astounding. By far, one of the best films I have ever seen in my life.
I could not speak for 24 hours after seeing the film. It was more than a movie. It was a mediation on life and family and humanity. It was fortifying.
