Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Top Our List Of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, when movie lovers’ thoughts turn to romance films. Older folks might think of putting on Casablanca; Gen X’ers, Say Anything. What does it say about the millennial generation that the most popular love story of their time involves a young lady, a vampire and a werewolf?
That’s why Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson land at the top of our list of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples. We looked at the top-grossing romantic movies of the last three years. Twilight was by far the biggest box office winner over that period, earning $1.17 billion.
The fact that we get to track the couple’s off-screen romance along with their on-screen love just adds to the overall romance of the films. The couple is reportedly back together after breaking up over Stewart’s fling with the married director of her film Snow White and the Huntsman.
Pattinson is also a member of the 10th place couple on our list alongside Reese Witherspoon. Their film Water for Elephants earned $59 million in the U.S. in 2011. Those aren’t Twilight numbers, but considering that the movie brought in an extra $58 million internationally and only cost $38 million to make, it was a small hit.
Mud screened at the Sundance Film Festival last nightwith Matthew McConaughey taking on promotional duties because unfortunately Reese was not in attendance. Reviews from the film are coming online, and below are the ones I’ve come across so far.
There is also an interesting interview with Matthew McConaughey up at HitFix, in which he talks a lot about the film.
‘Mud’ is a great story, but not a particularly great film.
Dripping in regional specificity and broad metaphor, Jeff Nichols’ new film feels more like a big, fat American novel you get assigned in 10th grade than the follow-up to ‘Take Shelter.’ That earlier film’s ominous tone and psychological portraiture is traded-in for large, gestural story beats that itch to be broken down and discussed for their symbolic meaning. When you are done explaining just what Boo Radley represented, then you can sink your teeth into Joe Don Baker’s character “King.”
There are worse crimes, though, than being grand, and ‘Mud”s coming of age tale certainly is that. Young Tye Sheridan plays Ellis, a good kid living “on the river” in Arkansas with an underachieving but caring father and a mother looking for change. He and his buddy Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) discover a boat stuck in a tree on an island, but they also discover a curious dude living there. It is Matthew McConaughey, charismatic as ever, but this time with a snake tattoo and a pistol stuck in the back of his jeans.
The first trailer for Mud was released earlier this week! The movie looks more intense that I had expected, and I think it’s going to be a really interesting film. Reese certainly seems to have a good part.
Along with the trailer comes a release date for the US – April 26th – and an official website – mud-themovie.com.
Watch the trailer below, and find screencaptures from it in our Gallery.
This is a bit gossipy, but maybe something more official will come of it?
Vergara, Witherspoon: Comic dream
Sofia Vergara could be teaming with Reese Witherspoon on an upcoming project. The two funny gals were spotted “laughing and joking” together over tea at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills yesterday, and sources exclusively tell us the meeting was about working on a movie together. “They are both great comedic actresses, and a joint project could be fantastic,” a source told us of the potential union. A spy added, “Sofia and Reese couldn’t be more different, but they got on famously, they were laughing the whole time. They were heard talking movies and brainstorming ideas.” Witherspoon has taken time off from working as she gave birth to son Tennessee James in September. Vergara has been flexing her comedic chops on “Modern Family,” and also in ads for Pepsi.

Last weekend, Reese and her husband attended Sean Penn’s Haiti Benefit Gala in Los Angeles. They were two of many celebrity guests attending the event to raise money for Penn’s Haiti charity. US Weekly says that Reese bid $125,000 for something, although the article further down this post gives a different figure and more details. Check out the HQ photos of Reese watching the auction in the audience in our Gallery:
Mindy Kaling on Reese Witherspoon: “We Want to Work Together!”
It seems as if everyone in Hollywood is dying to guest star on The Mindy Project — Reese Witherspoon included!
At FOX’s Winter TCA Tour cocktail party in Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 8, series creator and star Mindy Kaling chatted with Us Weekly about why she’d love to see Witherspoon make a cameo on the freshman comedy. (The two were first spotted on a lunch date in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood on Dec. 1, 2012.)
“She is a fan of my book which is a really nice thing. She wrote me a nice note about it,” the Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? author, 33, said of Witherspoon, 36. “We want to work together; we’re just trying to think of a good project.”
Reese is one of the several celebrities who have joined together to make a PSA demanding new legislation to provide better gun control in America. Watch the PSA below, and check out the official website for more information.
A group of artists joined our effort to Demand A Plan and recorded a powerful, personal message. Please take a minute to watch the video and share it with your friends and family.
I am very excited to finally have online our brand new layout! This was made for us by Mycah, with a finishing touch by the lovely Lindsey, using Reese’s exceptionally gorgeous photos for last year’s UK Glamour magazine. This new design feels super classy and ethereal, and I think it’s a nice constrast to the fun pink Legally Blonde layout we had before. I could just stare at these photos for hours. Make sure you refresh the page and/or visit other pages within this site because the header image will change each time the page loads.
You may also notice a new mini special feature on the sidebar – 11 Of The Best. This is to celebrate Glamour Reese Witherspoon’s whopping 11 years online (as of November 2012), and highlights some of my favourite Reese moments from the past 11 years. It took me a long time to whittle it down to just 11
If you notice any errors then please let me know, but otherwise, please enjoy the new layout ^_^
After more hard work, I have now continued and completed our 2003 Appearance photos gallery category, with the addition of over 400 more pics from events Reese attended that year. It was a relatively quiet year for her, as she mainly just did promotion for Legally Blonde 2.
I was never overly keen on Reese’s style this year, but after looking through all the photos again whilst sorting them to upload here, I have had a change of heart – in particular, I now adore her look at the New York premiere of Legally Blonde 2, it’s so pretty and elegant … it might even be one of my new favourites! I think Reese looks really happy in this year too, perhaps because of the little one she was carrying!

First off, Happy New Year to all our visitors!! I hope 2013 brings you lots of great things
Reese made a very funny appearance on the Christmas Day episode of the Chelsea Lately Show, with the two friends talking about Reese’s new son, and the possibility of Chelsea babysitting for Reese. Reese then tested Chelsea’s ability to look after a baby! It was a very funny interview – I always love Reese’s interviews with Chelsea because the conversation feels like two friends chatting together on television, and I think we see more of the real Reese than we do elsewhere.
Watch the interview below (I hope it will work for everyone!), and find HD screencaptures from it in our Gallery:
