Continuing with old movie screencaptures, today I have watched and capped American Psycho for you. Reese plays Evelyn in this 2000 horror/thriller. This was the few Reese movies I’d never seen before so I was glad to watch it finally, and while it’s definitely not one of my favourite movies (far too bloody for me!), I thought it was a fairly interesting take on a male psyche, with some clever sardonic wit. It was again a very, very different project for Reese and she was hilarious!
The recent Elle US interview actually gave us some insights into Reese and director Mary Harron’s casting of her in the project – Harron told the magazine that Reese didn’t want to play the secretary, as was originally intended, because she felt she was too much of a victim. Reese obviously wanted to play a character with more control and zest, something which Evelyn certainly had and a quality that, Reese says, saved Evelyn [I won’t give away a spoiler!]!
I’ve added screencaptures from the film itself, plus the trailer, a (very funny) deleted scene, and the cast interviews.
Have you seen this movie? What did you think of it? It certainly brings up a lot to discuss. Share your thoughts and reviews by posting a comment if you wish…

Check out this super rare treat of Reese talking to MTV way back in 1991 – that’s 21 years ago! I can’t believe Reese has been working in Hollywood for that long, can you?
Unfortunately those outside the US can’t view the video (thanks, MTV), but hopefully there will be some other way for us to get it, and if so I will of course post here.
Reese Witherspoon is slated to sit down with MTV News on Tuesday for an exclusive interview and premiere of a previously unseen clip from her upcoming film “This Means War.” The special, “MTV First: Reese Witherspoon,” will air on Tuesday at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV.
But before we look to the future, we are going to take a peep at her past. MTV News has uncovered a precious vintage gem, a 1991 interview with the then up-and-comer. “Ever since I was 7,” the already precocious and sassy rookie told MTV News when asked whether she had always had her sights set on a career in Hollywood. “I just thought, I always wanted to do something really outgoing ’cause when I was little I was really kind of quiet, but you know, I’d always be really creative at home and stuff, and finally I started, you know, speaking out and doing little things to impress everybody.”
She further explained that once she had decided that acting was something she wanted to do, she took the necessary steps to make sure she’d be ready for fame and stardom. “I started taking little acting classes and improv classes and, you know, [that] turned out to be what I was going to do,” she said. “I was always going to do something really out there, really far away. Does that make any sense? No, not really.”
Reese will be a guest on The Graham Norton Show next Friday (February 3rd)! The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC1 in the UK on Friday nights at 10:35pm. Tune in if you can! I will do my best to post a video here for you asap after the show airs.
Episode 13 of 23, Series 10
Duration: 45 minutes
Among the guests on Graham’s sofa are Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, who discusses her new film This Means War; comedian Reginald D Hunter; and Doctor Who and Upstairs Downstairs star, Alex Kingston. Plus there is music from indie band the Musgraves.
Katherine Heigl mentioned Reese in a recent interview, saying that she loves watching Reese’s movies:
AP: Since leaving the show, you’ve starred in several romantic comedies. Are you worried about being typecast?
Heigl: They tend to be the movies I watch when I’m home and hanging out and want to relax. I want to watch Kate Hudson, I want to watch Reese Witherspoon, I want to watch all those great movies that make you feel good. So I loved being a part of them and I didn’t mind being typecast, but any time you start to wander outside the box a little bit people start to get confused. … This one is an interesting one because it wasn’t a conscious decision not to do romantic comedy. … The book explores so many different themes that in order to honor it properly and do right by it we couldn’t just turn it into a romantic comedy.
Reese Witherspoon is unsure how her new movie ‘This Means War’ with Chris Pine and Tom Hardy ends.
The Oscar-winning actress – who stars alongside Chris Pine and Tom Hardy in the romantic spy comedy – admits multiple endings were shot for the final scene, meaning she does not know which of the lead actors she ends up with.
She said: “We shot endings where I could end up with Tom, or I could end up with Chris, or I could end up alone. Or I could end up with Chelsea Handler!”
The blonde beauty wears a number of vertiginous pairs of heels in the film, directed by McG, and she was shocked when Chris Pine – best known as Captain Kirk in ‘Star Trek’ – asked her to keep them on during a sex scene.
She told Total Film magazine: “Tom and Chris were both Obsessed with my shoes. Both of them! Obsessed with me wearing high-heeled sexy shoes. I was actually doing a sex scene with Chris and he said, ‘Can you keep your shoes on?’ I was like, ‘OK,’.”
TheSun.co.uk have posted a great 9 minute sneak peek at This Means War! It looks pretty funny, don’t you think…?
Another version of the video, which you can find further down this post, has an additional sequence at the beginning, showing a big action scene (just not with Reese).

Today I have added screencaps from Reese’s 1998 movie Twilight, in which she played Mel. She only had a very small role, but she was her usual sassy self, and it must’ve been an amazing experience for working alongside Susan Sarandon, Paul Newman and Gene Hackman. Plus, the movie is very ‘old Hollywood’ and unlike anything she’s ever done, either before or since then. It goes without saying that I enjoyed her scenes, and really liked what she bought to them, especially seeing her character development.
Some of the screencaptures do contain slightly nudity, so please be aware they may not be suitable for all viewers.
“This Means War,” Fox’s comedy-action film starring Reese Witherspoon and Tom Hardy, will keep its R rating, the MPAA’s appeals board ruled Thursday.
Fox had asked the Motion Picture Association of America’s Classification and Rating Appeals Board to give McG’s movie a less-restrictive rating.
After hearing statements from Ted Gagliano, president of feature post production for Twentieth Century Fox and from Joan Graves, who chairs the Classification and Rating Administration, the board upheld the R.
The board ruled that the movie has “some sexual content” — enough to give it an R.
For an appeal to be successful, two-thirds of the board must vote that the rating is “clearly erroneous.”
The board reviews between 800 and 900 movies each year. Usually, fewer than 12 are appealed.
Fox did not immediately return a call and email seeking comment.
“This Means War” is about two CIA operatives who become enemies when they find out they’re both dating the same woman.
The movie is set for a Feb. 14 release.
I have now added good quality screencaps from Reese’s super-sweet presentation at the recent Golden Globe Awards. I posted the video here if you missed it/want to watch it again!
Dumas, Ark. seldom gets attention in national news, but when two A-List celebrities come into town, Arkansas gets its name on the map. When Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey came to town, people were wondering if the world was coming to an end. Luckily, it’s not, and the two were in town to shoot a movie called “Mud.”
Jeff Nichols, a native award-winning Arkansan, brings his next feature to Southeast Arkansas. The movie was filmed in the areas of Dumas, Dewitt and Stuttgart.
The cast and crew only shot in Arkansas for two weeks, but that was enough time to get people buzzing about “Mud.”
Area residents had the opportunity to participate in the film as extras and stand-ins. They needed residents to play high school teens. The movie asked people who were teenagers between 16 and 20 years old to participate in the movie as extras.
Dumas was thrilled to hear that a movie was to be filmed featuring parts of the town, especially one starring Reese Witherspoon.
The financial benefits defiantly outweighed the inconvenience in the street closings and local business closings. Multiple businesses were paid for the use of their store fronts, parking lots and the entirety of buildings.
The world premiere of This Means War will be held at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on February 8th! Reese will most likely be in attendance, along with her co-stars Tom Hardy and Chris Pine. We can’t wait to see the photos, and will of course be bringing you lots of coverage here the day after.
