Continuing our massive Water For Elephants promotion catch-up (make sure you don’t miss our first huge update below!), I’ve now started to work on the remaining public appearance photos.
I’ve added another 50+ gorgeous HQs from the Water For Elephants press conference – these are a real treat! Over to Paris, and we have 20+ additional HQs from the premiere held there. From the Spanish events, we have 40-odd more HQs from the Barcelona premiere, plus I’ve finally added photos from the press conference held in that city the day after the premiere. I’ve also added photos from the two events held in Sydney – a fun-looking photocall with Tai the elephant, and a red carpet premiere. Reese looked casually cute at the Sydney photocall, but she really turned on the glitz for the premiere, looking stunning in a little blue dress and gorgeous curly hair – I love this look on her! It’s probably my favourite of the Water For Elephants promotion, alongside the New York premiere.
Speaking of the New York premiere, I’m still sorting through photos from that and the London premiere, as there are more photos from them both than you would believe! I’m hoping to get them added slowly over the next week, so keep an eye on the Gallery for them.
Photos from the most recent events Reese has attended are coming tomorrow/Monday…

Finally, an update, I hear you say! To try to stop being the world’s worst webmaster, I have some massive updates for you featuring all the remaining photos from the Water For Elephants promotion a couple of months ago.
Part 1 of the massive update is full of photoshoots, magazine scans, and tv appearance screencaptures. First up we have additional photos from the shoot Reese did for the LA Times earlier this year. We have over 100 new magazine scans/clippings for you to browse through, most of which are thanks to Mirik. Big thanks goes to our friend Mia for gorgeous scans from a recent issue of Madame Figaro which featured a new photoshoot image of Miss Reese. I’ve also added images from Reese’s Vogue cover spread.
In the TV Appearances section we now have screencaps from all of Reese’s Water For Elephants tv interviews – the new additions are from Conan, Ellen, Le Grand Journal and The Graham Norton Show. Reese looked so beautiful on each show (particularly Conan, I think!) and was her usual funny and animated self, so there are lots of super-fun expressions in there. I’ve also added HQ stills from the Ellen and Graham Norton appearances.
This makes close to 2,000 new photos, so you have a lot of beautiful Reese to browse!! Catch-up appearance photos are on the way … Oh, and maybe something else a little bit special 😛

The studio has picked up the romantic comedy pitch “Who Invited Her?” about a woman who crashes a bachelor party getaway.
Wedding-themed movies are all the rage in Hollywood — see the success of Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part 2 — and now DreamWorks and Reese Witherspoon are trying a knot.
DreamWorks has picked up Who Invited Her? a romantic comedy pitch from Sascha Rothschild that has Witherspoon attached to star and produce. Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff will also produce via their Krasnoff Foster Entertainment banner.
The story centers on a woman who crashes a bachelor party getaway.
Rothschild wrote How to Get Divorced by 30, based on her article in LA Weekly. The project is set up Universal.
Witherspoon is a producer on This Means War, in which she also stars. The movie, which also stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, will be released in February.
I’ve now added another 120+ HQs from Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards! These include pics of Reese lighting up the red carpet with her mega-watt smile, and some great shots of her on stage inside the event, accepting her award and in the audience. More HQs to come, plus hopefully some more videos from the night, too…

I’ve now added our first 36 HQs from last night’s MTV Movie Awards. Reese looked sexy in a little black and grey cocktail dress from Zac Posen’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection, with Christian Louboutin pumps, Neil Lane jewellry, and her hair left naturally down. Enjoy these HQs, and check back in the coming days for more!
Congrats once again to Reese on this award!

As posted about last night, our classy and talented Reese was honoured with the Generation Award at the MTV Movie Awards last night! I will start adding photos asap. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a full video of her speech, but below is a link to a short – but memorable – clip of it, embedding of which has unfortunately been disabled, so you’ll have to click the link to watch it. Embedded below that here though, is another short clip, of Robert Pattinson talking about Reese during the introduction to her award. Plus there’s a video of her talking backstage.
To start off our photo updates from this event, we have over 280 fabulous screencaps of Reese on stage, made for us by Jessica.
What a fantastic tribute to Reese. I haven’t seen the actual, full, presentation yet, but just seeing these caps reminds me of so many great moments in her career. And I think it’s very impressive of her to use this opportunity to remind younger fans how you can get somewhere being classy and having manners! Reese is such an admirable inspiration.

Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian might have been blushing as they watched Reese Witherspoon at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards.
Accepting her MTV Generation award, the Oscar-winning actress slammed stars who have appeared in sex tapes and nude-photo scandals, telling them they should be ashamed of themselves.
“I get it, girls, that it’s cool to be a bad girl,” the mom-of-two told the crowd. “But it is possible to make it in Hollywood without doing a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed.”
Witherspoon also appeared to have a message for “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively, who denied last week that she was the mystery blonde in a series of nude cell phone pics making the rounds on the Internet.
Said Witherspoon, “And if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people! Hide your face!”
The “Water for Elephants” star concluded her speech with a message of hope.
“For all the girls out there, it’s totally possible to be a good girl,” she said. “I’m going to try to make it cool.”
Reese will be attending the MTV Movie Awards tonight, where she will receive the Generation award – how exciting!! We’ll be bringing you coverage tomorrow, but tonight you can watch a live stream from the red carpet below … if you’re in the US. If you’re not in the US, then you’re out of luck unfortunately, thanks to MTV’s “country restrictions”.
You can get exclusive coverage of the event through various MTV apps. And, if you’re in the US, you can tune into your TV and watch the show on MTV at 9PM EST.
Reese Witherspoon better make some room on her trophy shelf.
MTV says Witherspoon will receive its Generation Award at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards.
The 35-year-old Oscar winner is being recognized for her range as an actress and for delighting the MTV audience throughout her career. MTV President Stephen Friedman called Witherspoon “one of the most versatile and accomplished performers of her time.”
“Saturday Night Live” star Jason Sudeikis will host Sunday’s ceremony at the Gibson Amphitheater, where Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Shia LaBeouf, Patrick Dempsey, Cameron Diaz, Selena Gomez and Nicki Minaj are among those set to present the prizes.
Fans voted online for the winners in categories such as best kiss, best villain and best line from a movie. MTV chose Witherspoon, who joins previous Generation Award winners Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.
Sunday’s show will also feature a first-look at footage from the latest “Twilight” installment, “Breaking Dawn, Part 1.”
To date, the Johnny Depp-Penélope Cruz vehicle Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the biggest worldwide box-office hit of 2011, having grossed $623.71m. In North America, the top movie is Fast Five, the fifth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, which has scored $196.02m. Rio, Thor, and The Hangover Part II have also performed remarkably well.
As I mentioned in a previous post, apart from two late 2010 releases, Oscar winners The King’s Speech and Black Swan, 2011 moviegoers continue to ignore dramas about human relationships. At no. 20, Francis Lawrence’s Water for Elephants, starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, and Christoph Waltz is the sole drama — outside the action/thriller/horror genres — among the year’s top 25 releases.
In North America, Water for Elephants has taken in $54.4m after five weeks. Internationally, the $38m-budgeted circus drama has just passed the $50m milestone after adding $3.7m this weekend as per The Hollywood Reporter. Total to date: $50.7m. Water for Elephants has thus passed the $100m milestone, cuming at $105.1m worldwide.
As of May 22, Water for Elephants’ top overseas markets were: Australia with $6.85m, Germany with $5.75m, France with $5.39m, the United Kingdom with $5.19m, and Mexico with $2.73m. The film also earned more than $1m in Brazil (up to May 15), Italy (despite a slow start), Russia/CIS, Spain, and Sweden.
For comparison’s sake: Reese Witherspoon’s previous star vehicle, James L. Brooks’ $120m comedy How Do You Know, collected only $30m in the US/Canada and $17.49m internationally earlier this year. Its top foreign markets were Germany ($3.11m), Australia ($2.73m), and Spain ($1.62m).
Robert Pattinson’s previous non-Twilight Saga vehicle, the romantic drama Remember Me, went on to gross $19m in North America and $36.96m internationally in 2010. Remember Me’s top international markets were the United Kingdom/Ireland ($5.49m), France ($3.53m), and Russia/CIS ($3.48m).
Wow, slashfilm.com have posted a real treat for us Reese fans! They’ve found the original ending to Reese’s 1999 movie Election, a real classic Reese movie and a fan favourite!
The YouTube video description gives us more details:
In this never-before-seen ending, Mr. McAllister does not move to NYC, but instead becomes a car salesman and Tracy visits him before leaving for college.
This scene is from the ‘working print’ of the film – it was found on an unlabeled VHS tape at a local flea market. It was NOT included on the DVD!
Watch the video below, and head on over to slashfilm.com for their commentary on the ending.
