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,’.”

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.
Interesting tidbit about this: Reese’s friend Kate Hudson was attached to star in this project many years ago.
Filming is scheduled to begin in the Spring.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Reynolds will play Margaret and Walter Keane in an indie biopic about the couple whose art — especially paintings of doe-eyed children — became a pop phenomenon in the 1950s and 1960s.
While their art was reproduced and marketed around the country, their home life was unhappy: Margaret Keane was the artist, but her husband took credit. In fact, it carried Walter Keane’s name, rather than the shy Margaret’s.
When the two divorced, both claimed rights to the paintings. Ultimately — in federal court — Margaret Keane painted a picture to prove that she was, in fact the artist. When the judge asked Walter Keane to paint, he declined, saying his sore shoulder prevented him from painting.
The judge found for Margaret Keane.
Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski wrote and will direct the film. Tim Burton is producing through his Tim Burton Productions. Lynette Howell and Jamie Patricof are producing through their Electric City Entertainment.

“We are ecstatic to have this dream cast for our dream project,” the directors said in a written statement. “Walter is a larger-than-life antihero — charming, funny, dangerous, and a little crazy. Ryan will knock it out of the park. As for Reese, she will be perfect as Margaret — soulful, decent, transforming from vulnerability to learning to fight for herself.”
Alexander and Karaszewski know their biopics: They wrote “Ed Wood,” “The People vs. Larry Flint” and Andy Kaufman biopic “Man on the Moon.”
With Burton, they’re working on a new version of “The Addams Family.”
“Big Eyes” has been on Alexander and Karaszewski’s to-do list since at least 2009.
