As we posted about last night, Miss Reese attended the Golden Globe Awards last night, looking ravishing in red. We posted the first look at her at the event last night, and I have now added our first 31 HQs from the night to the Gallery! Unfortunately this is all I’ve had time for today, but many, many, many (!) more will be added in the next day or so. Plus, further down this post is a short but sweet video interview with Reese on the red carpet.
During the show Reese served as a presenter, introducing the film ‘The Descendants‘ as a Best Picture – Drama nominee. Film fans will know that ‘The Descendants‘ is directed by Alexander Payne, who directed Reese in Election. Reese sweetly – and proudly – spoke of him as her friend. I will probably be able to get a video and caps of her presenting, and again those will be up in a day or so, as will tidbits from the goings-on during the night.
For now, enjoy these fabulous HQ shots of Reese lighting up the red carpet…
• The Golden Globe Awards x31
Reese has now walked the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards in Beverley Hills, and she’s looking pretty gorgeous! She’s wearing a red Zac posen dress, with her tousled blonde hair down. She spoke to Ryan Seacrest on the E! red carpet show with Jimmy Fallon, and they chatted about various things, including controversial show host Ricky Gervais, about whom Reese said “He’s so wrong, he’s right – I like it.”
I’ve added the first photo to our Gallery, and be sure there will be many more to follow tomorrow!
The People’s Choice Awards were held last night, where Reese was nominated for Favourite Movie Actress. Unfortunately she did not win – the award instead went to Emma Stone – nor was she in attendance. Water For Elephants did pick up the award for Favorite Drama Movie, but lost out on Favorite Book Adaptation to Harry Potter. See the complete list of winners here.
Additional presenters have been announced for the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. As previously reported, the prizes will be awarded in a ceremony to be held on Sunday, January 15 in Los Angeles and aired live on NBC. Ricky Gervais will host.
Among the artists who will take part in the event are Jessica Biel, Robert Downey Jr., Jimmy Fallon, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Adam Levine, Rob Lowe, Katharine McPhee, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mark Wahlberg, and Reese Witherspoon.
As previously announced Antonio Banderas, Jake Gyllenhaal, Salma Hayek, Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Clive Owen, Freida Pinto, and Natalie Portman will also be presenters.

Additionally, it was confirmed that Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon will appear on the post-late night show on January 22.
Read the full article (just about Chelsea’s show, no further mention of Reese) at AccessHollywood.com.
To mark the start of promotion for This Means War, Reese is gracing the cover of the new February 2012 issue of US Elle! A slightly photoshopped cover is more than made up for by the absolutely gorgeous photoshoot inside! The interview is really nice too, and Reese talks about the movie, her new husband, and love. The interview also features several interesting quotes from friends and former directors and co-stars, who all talk glowingly about Reese, of course.
The cover has been added to our Gallery, along with scans from the full spread which do unfortunately have horrible watermarks right through the middle! You can see still the stunning photos in them, but rest assured I will be replacing these with better quality scans as soon as possible 😉
Props to the always amazing @MagazineShelf for the alert to this.
“I’m more womanly. I feel sexier. I’m more comfortable with my sexuality as I get older. When I was younger, I didn’t know why men were starting to look at me. Now I know why men are looking – and I’m cool with it.” – Reese Witherspoon in Elle
Aussie Reese fans should pick up a copy of the new February 2012 issue of Marie Claire, as Miss Witherspoon is on the cover! It’s a gorgeous cover with Reese looking very striking. It is an old photoshoot, though, from 2009, and I believe the photos inside are from last years Marie Claire US spread. Not sure whether the interview is new or not.
Check out the cover by clicking the thumbnail above, and I’ll be adding scans to our Gallery asap.
As it’s January 1st already, I would like to take a second to wish all of our visitors and fellow Reese fans – as well as Reese herself – a very Happy New Year! I hope 2012 brings you lots of happiness and success.
2011 was a pretty special year for our Reese, as she walked down the aisle with Jim Toth in March. Professionally, she spent several weeks on a massive worldwide promotional tour for Water For Elephants, then began filming new movie Mud in Arkansas and doing re-shoots for This Means War. Glamour Reese Witherspoon site-wise, we underwent a make-over with a new tribute layout to Legally Blonde to celebrate the iconic movie’s 10 year anniversary. Glamour Reese Witherspoon also reached 10 years online … a fact that will be celebrated a bit late but soon, due to my poor memory and busy offline life! Thank you for visiting and supporting GRW in 2011 – we hope you enjoyed your visit this year, but we promise you more of the same and better in 2012, all in honour of the loveable Reese and her loyal fans!
December 27th 2011 – Actress and producer Reese Witherspoon sits down with TIME to talk about her career and charitable work
Reese Witherspoon will star in Devil’s Knot, the Atom Egoyan-directed drama about the West Memphis 3. As Deadline revealed just after the West Memphis 3 murder defendants were released from prison August 19, The Sweet Hereafter and Chloe director Egoyan came aboard to direct a script that was originally written by Scott Derrickson and Paul Boardman, the team behind The Exorcism Of Emily Rose. Witherspoon will play Pam Hobbs, the mother of one of the murder victims who initially believes the trio murdered her son, but she is eventually persuaded that the three suspects are innocent and wrongly accused. Filming begins next summer.
Egoyan has spent the last six weeks working with Boardman on a rewrite. The script is based on investigative reporter Mara Leveritt’s 2003 book Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three, an in-depth chronicle of the sensationalized trials that sent the three to prison for the murder of the three 8-year old boys who were found hog-tied in a drainage ditch. The project is not a rush job. Derrickson and Boardman began writing it in 2006 when the film first took root at Dimension Films. It will be produced by Elizabeth Fowler, Clark Peterson, Richard Saperstein and Boardman. Saperstein was Dimension president and he acquired the film. After he left, Dimension eventually put the project into turnaround and Saperstein became re-involved as producer. The package includes life rights deals with some of the figures in the case, and especially Ron Lax, a private investigator who has been working pro bono on trying to overturn the verdict since 1993. There are no rights deals with the West Memphis 3 defendants Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr because at the time, two were serving life sentences and Echols was on death row. The plan is to finance the film independently, but the filmmakers might well make a domestic distribution deal before getting underway.
CAA and Management 360 rep Witherspoon.
Glamour Reese Witherspoon would like to wish you all, and Reese and her loved ones, a very Merry Christmas! I hope your holidays are filled with shiny presents, yummy food, and most importantly of all, a lot of Christmas joy!
“I make my mother’s champagne punch, which is basically just champagne and ginger ale. Everybody has too much to drink and sings loudly. It’s fun! We watch the kids rip through their presents. They have the best time.” – Reese on her Christmas traditions
Just a small update today – I’ve added another 60+ photos from the This Means War re-shoots that we had pics from earlier this month. In some of these photos we can see Reese filming additional scenes with co-stars Chelsea Handler, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.
Updates will likely be slow/non-existent from now up until Christmas, due to the busy holiday season! However, I will be adding more film screencaptures plus new/additional content asap after Xmas Day itself (if not sooner, depending on time!). I’m hoping I might have time to get in a few Christmas-sy Reese treats too!
