Again thanks to my awesome friend Maria, we have another big screencapture update today! Over 1,500 HD screencaptures from How Do You Know? can now be found in the Gallery. Again the caps are full HD/bluray size so are very good quality … which is great for us as Reese looks so beautiful in this movie! She also has some great expressions in this movie, cue the many screencaps. I desperately tried to like this movie, but I found the script too forced and ultimately it just didn’t get me invested in the characters. Despite not enjoying the final result myself, I really applaud Reese taking the role, as it’s a more grown-up, analytical romantic comedy. Plus I would watch Reese and Paul Rudd on screen together in anything – I love them working together!
What did you think of How Do You Know?? Let us know by posting a comment, either before or after you browse our many beautiful screencaps
I’m in an updating mood, so I have a second lot of screencaptures for you now. Again thanks to my wonderful friend Maria, I’ve added over 1,200 HD screencaptures from Water For Elephants, as well as over 700 HD caps from the DVD extras. While this isn’t my favourite movie, Reese does look so gorgeous in it – the 1920′s style really suits her, I love her hair and make-up! The screencaptures are just stunning and in perfect quality – there really are so many great shots in there, you’ll want to take your time browsing them all! Big, big thanks to Maria again for helping us out with these.
Just look at the prettyness ^_^

I have another fantastic screencapture update for you today – I’ve added HD screencaptures from Reese’s 1998 movie Pleasantville, plus screencaps from the DVD menu’s and trailer! As with all HD screencaptures these look gorgeous and are such great quality. Big thanks to my friend Maria for making them for us. Pleasantville is one of my favourite Reese movies and performances from her – the movie is just so smart and original, and Reese is at her best as Jennifer/Mary-Sue. I know our lovely screencapper Maria enjoyed the movie too.
Do you love Pleasantville as much as us? Share your thoughts on the movie by posting a comment if you wish …
In the press release about Reese’s new production company Pacific Standard, it mentioned a project she has just purchased, entitled Wild. Below is some more information about the story and potential film:
Wild, Cheryl Strayed’s memoir of her eleven-hundred-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail, experienced solo, hits shelves later this month. Hollywood darling Reese Witherspoon, however, isn’t waiting until then to get her hands on the project. The Oscar-winning actress has purchased the film rights to the book and will also reportedly star in the film, taking on the role of author Strayed.
Following the death of her mother and divorce from her husband, Strayed acts on a percolating impulse to pack up her life, invest in a backpack we come to know as “Monster,” lace up her (ill-fitting) hiking boots, and begin a solitary journey of a lifetime: one thousand, one hundred miles of challenging terrain, traversing drastic spikes and dips in altitude, treacherous snow cover, days that rise above one hundred degrees and nights that fall below freezing. Making the journey even more exciting (for us, anyway) is Strayed’s naive financial plan: a twenty-dollar bill packed into her supply boxes, sent to various stops along the way, often at post offices hundreds of miles apart. Making the journey more exciting for both the reader and Strayed — and, now, ultimately the viewer — is the cast of characters she meets along the way and the kindness and quirkiness they exhibit. What results is a catharsis unlike any other. Strayed is no wimp, and as she invites readers along on her trip, she also invites them along on her transformation from heartbroken and heroin-dabbling lost soul to a woman full of strength and confidence, wisdom and compassion.

Reese is continuing her This Means War promotion worldwide, and is currently in Brazil. She attended a premiere for the movie in Rio De Janeiro yesterday, looking bright and sunny in a lovely yellow Louis Vuitton dress, and today posed at the press conference in a summery floral Erdem dress. Find photos from both events in our Gallery!
Reese will also be travelling to Germany and Mexico City to promote the movie … I expect Mexico will be next!
To kick off our weekend of massive updates (time permitting!), I have something fantastic for you! I’ve added over 100 more HQ photos from the recent portrait photoshoot Reese did to promote This Means War! It’s such a nice photoshoot, and we are so lucky to be able to get so many HQs from it. Credit goes to ‘jens’ for them.
I’ll leave you to get browsing – enjoy enjoy enjoy….

Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea have joined forces to launch a new production banner, Pacific Standard. The duo will fold a number of projects into the partnership from their pre-existing shingles Type A Films and Make Movies.
Pacific Standard has several properties prepped to go out to the market. One of which is WILD, the soon-to-be published novel by Cheryl Strayed, a powerful and honest memoir that tells the story of an 1100 mile solo hike that breaks down a young woman reeling from catastrophe—and brings her back to life.
Witherspoon and Papandrea look forward to utilizing the relationships they have forged with filmmakers, actors and writers to make smart, character-driven, commercial films both large and small.
“I’ve always been impressed by Bruna’s taste and her skills as a producer. I’m very excited to be working with her. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with someone so smart, fun and formidable.” Witherspoon comments.
“In Reese I have found a like-minded and incredibly passionate partner who genuinely shares the same goals. “I’ve had a wonderful time producing movies independently but I couldn’t be more excited about the company and brand we will create together,” notes Papandrea.
Witherspoon has been active in a producing capacity since LEGALLY BLONDE II. Her Type A credits include FOUR CHRISTMASES and the independent feature PENELOPE. She acquired Peggy Lee’s life rights and partnered with Marc Platt on a biographical film that Nora Ephron will write for Fox 2000.

This Means War is aMcG directed action-packed romantic comedy which sees best friends Tuck and Frank, played by Tom Hardy and Chris Pine, waging an epic battle against each other when they find out that they’re both dating the same woman.
Reese Witherspoon plays Lauren, the woman who gets both men in a tizzy, and as they decide to leave it up to Lauren to choose one of them, the pair use their CIA skills to sabotage each other’s dates with her.
Speaking about Tuck and Frank’s extreme measures to try and win the heart of the girl they love, Chris said: “There’s the unspoken code amongst guys that if a woman does come between you there’s certain rules you have to abide by.
This Means War for Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon
“I think for these two guys who live by a code of rules and ethics it kind of throws them when they meet a beautiful girl.”
One of the lines from the film sees Lauren making reference to Tuck’s small hands, but both Chris and Reese claim not to know what it means.
Chris laughed: “I had to ask McG literally 20 times what that means and it was never answered, but I laugh at it whole heartedly.
Reese added: “We figured we had to say that because the British people have the best sense of humour and can take the p**s.”
This Means War is showing in UK cinemas now.
