Tom Hardy & Chris Pine Fight Over Reese Witherspoon In ‘This Means War’
Tom Hardy, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine chat with Access about doing their own stunts in their new movie, “This Means War.” Also, the trio answers questions about who’s the better kisser, who flubs the most lines and more.
Another press interview for This Means War. I think The Insider will also air an interview with the cast on their TV show tomorrow.
Reese, Chris & Tom Lock Lips for ‘War’
February 06, 2012
Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy form an explosive love triangle in This Means War, the new action-comedy from director McG (Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Terminator Salvation), and the three stars tell The Insider’s Brooke Anderson what it was like to lock lips and shed their clothes for the sake of the movie!
In theaters Valentine’s Day, This Means War finds dangerous CIA operatives Chris and Tom, inseparable partners and best friends, falling independently for Reese. But when they discover that they’re vying for the affections of same girl, all bets are off – and may the best man win!
Fox is waving the white flag on what is supposed to be a worth-the-price-of-admission movie which in and of itself is a rarity these days. The studio was supposed to open its ‘romantic action comedy’ This Means War on Tuesday aka Valentine’s Day. But the studio hasn’t seen the pic’s poor tracking pick up at all in recent days, while Sony Pictures/Screen Gems’ The Vow is soaring in wannasee. So Fox has decided to get out of the way. In an unusual move this late in the game, the studio will sneak This Means War on Tuesday and then hope word of mouth spreads before its new release date of Friday, February 17th. I don’t get what the moviegoing public’s problem with this pic is: Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, and Reese Witherspoon are just as cool casting as Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams (though apparently not as box office) and the trailers have been engaging (though thrust into a lot of clutter) and the film didn’t look dumb (and that’s is half the battle with this genre).
Reese Witherspoon plays a woman trying to choose between the serious-but-sexy Tom Hardy and the sweet-but-slick Chris Pine in the upcoming This Means War. Picking between the two leading men might sound like a tough task, but Reese said she welcomed the challenge the role presented when we talked with the trio at a recent press day for the project. During our chat, Reese revealed the surprising — if scary — risk one guy took to try and win her over in real life, while Chris admitted to feeling some nerves over his onscreen fistfight with Tom, who has a pretty impressive mixed martial arts background. Check out our interview with the costars and check out This Means War when it hits theaters on Valentine’s Day!
“This Means War” star Reese Witherspoon spills on her racy countertop make-out scene with costar Chris Pine. Listen in!
Reese attended the press conference for This Means War last Saturday, and pictures have now surfaced online. I’ve added 14 HQ photos from the conference, and you can see that Reese is looking as adorable as always, and sporting some of her trademark funny expressions!
With all the rumours about Justin Bieber wanting to star
as Reese in a re-make of Fear, I thought it was an opportune time to dig out my DVD and re-add screencaptures from it to our Gallery! So, I’ve now made and uploaded over 1,000 screencaps from the film itself, plus caps from the Menu’s & Trailer. Unfortunately my DVD doesn’t have any other special features/extras.
Reese plays Nicole Walker in this dark and chilling tale of teenage ‘love’ and obsession. It’s one of my favourite early Reese movies, and definitely one of the seminal points in her career. I loved her edgy, mid-90’s era. Despite having seen it a couple of times, I still find myself thinking ‘Don’t do it Nicole’ several times throughout the movie! And then of course there’s the infamous rollercoaster scene. It’s a tense thriller.

I’ve added screencaptures from most of the press interviews and TV appearances Reese has given lately, including the hilarious After Lately appearance, and the first online promotional interviews for This Means War.
The After Lately episode was really funny, so I will see if I can find an embeddable video to post here, but if not I’ll try to make time to upload the video I have. Reese was on top comedic form as an overly nice then ultra bitchy ‘Reese’.
I’ll add caps from the Graham Norton Show in the next few days.
Locking lips with leading men like Chris Pine and Tom Hardy is just a typical day at the office for Reese Witherspoon.
Access Hollywood caught up with the “This Means War” star on Friday and got the dirt on which of her handsome co-stars is a better kisser.
“I would say [who], but then someone would cry,” Reese told Access at the “This Means War” junket in Los Angeles on Friday, while sitting between Chris and Tom. “Then the other person would be like, just proud and rude.”
After a bit of coercing, Reese finally chose the “Star Trek” hunk as the winner of the lip-lock battle.
“OK… Chris,” the 35-year-old said.
“Aww, man!” Chris said with a laugh. Thanks! “
“I can vouch for that!” Tom — who will next be seen on the big screen as super villain Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises” — jokingly added.
