Continuing our exclusive scans run, I’ve now added scans from the April issue of UK Elle magazine! A very big thank you goes to Kimberly for kindly contributing scans of the editorial to us (the 2 covers in the album are web-finds). While this isn’t my favourite photoshoot of Reese’s, it’s always nice to see something different from her, and the interview is a typically good read. Plus, it is also always great to see her on the cover of a magazine!
Please do not re-post these scans elsewhere as they were contributed exclusively to Glamour Reese – thanks!

Reese, Christoph Waltz and Robert Pattinson appeared on the French TV show ‘Le Grand Journal’ today. You can watch the videos (I think there are 2 parts) HERE or click the screencap below, as I don’t seem to be able to embed them! Screencaps will be added asap.
ABCNews.com have posted a great new interview with Reese, including a short out-take in which she breaks into song! Unfortunately they have disabled embedding, so just click the links below to watch the videos:

Where does Robert Pattinson begin and Edward Cullen end? At this point in the young “Twilight” thesp’s career it’s tough to separate the heartthrob actor from the heartthrob bloodsucker, but he’s currently making his second attempt at changing all that – after one false start with the disappointing “Remember Me” – with “Water for Elephants”, the upcoming adaptation of Sara Gruen’s bestselling historical novel. In the film, Pattinson plays Jacob Jankowski, a circus veterinarian who gets involved in a messy love triangle with equestrian beauty Marlena (Reese Witherspoon) and her ruthless animal-trainer husband August (“Inglourious Basterds’” charming Christoph Waltz).
Given the talent pedigree of the film, which was directed by “I Am Legend” helmer Francis Lawrence, it would seem a smart choice for Pattinson to take on the more “adult” role opposite Witherspoon and Waltz, though the actor certainly wasn’t about to admit to that kind of career calculation to a room full of image-burnishing journalists (he needs to stay “relatable”, after all). He’d rather have us believe he accepted the part merely for the opportunity to work with “Tai” (in the film she’s named ”Rosie”), the trained elephant who in the film is purchased by August to help boost his traveling show’s anemic ticket sales.
“I basically decided to do the movie at that point”, said the elegantly-rumpled Pattinson of first meeting the pachyderm, who’d earlier been on display outside the swanky Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica where the press conference was being held. “I hadn’t read the script or anything!”
Luckily he wasn’t on the panel for Pattinson to unintentionally offend screenwriter Richard LaGravenese – only Lawrence, Waltz, and Witherspoon, the latter speaking in that slight Tennessee drawl as she described her own first encounter with the enormous animal.
Not sure whether we’ve seen this footage yet or not! Sadly it’s in German so we can’t hear what Reese is saying in the brief interiew bit with her.
Take a behind-the-scenes look at how American Humane Association’s Certified Animal Safety Representatives ensured that “No Animals Were Harmed” during the filming of “Water for Elephants,” including clips of the film’s stars, Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson.
As posted about a while ago, Reese is on the cover of the May issue of US Vogue. Well I am now finally able to provide you with more coverage from the issue! My fabulous friend Luciana has sent me some perfect HQ photos from the Water For Elephants themed photoshoot, and Vogue.com have also posted the interview, which you can read below.
Now all we need is scans of the magazine! Let me know if you can help with this
What do you think about the new photoshoot and interview? I think the interview is great, and shows off the ‘new’ Reese. She seems really happy and contented at the moment, which is wonderful!
Reese Witherspoon: A Day at the Circus
On March 26, Reese Witherspoon was married to talent manager Jim Toth in a simple, elegant affair at her ranch in Ojai, California. Vogue’s Jonathan Van Meter spoke to the actress a few months before her wedding and discovered that, although the actress learned to ride an elephant for her role in the film, that’s nothing compared to balancing fame, love, and family.
Here she comes, waving like Miss America but looking like a blonde Audrey Hepburn. She is dressed in all black—leggings, cardigan, Wayfarers, and a kitten heel. The wave is hilariously exuberant, and even from a block away, as she strides purposefully toward me, I can see that the smile is comic: forced and way too big. And with that one winning gesture—a perfectly timed little burst of goofball—Reese Witherspoon signals that she is not only painfully aware that the sidewalk has suddenly become a runway lined with paparazzi yelling her name on an otherwise quiet Thursday afternoon in Santa Monica, but also that she is OK with it. Look at my weird life! she shouts without saying a word.
It’s a beautiful sunny day in early February, and we are meeting at the Blue Plate Oysterette, a hip little seafood joint not far from the Santa Monica Pier. Witherspoon, still at the curb, stares at the outside tables for a moment and then looks back at the photographers in the street still snapping away. She glances at the hostess, then at me, and finally says, with an ironic exclamation point, “How about inside!”
This aired on TV a few weeks ago, and this video has obviously been recorded from the TV so the quality isn’t great but it’s still a great watch!
This weekend, the angry and not-so-angry birds of the 3D animated smash Rio held onto the top spot at the North American box office for a second weekend in a row. Results for the Easter frame’s three new releases were good as the Tyler Perry comedy Madea’s Big Happy Family, the circus romance Water for Elephants, and the nature documentary African Cats all connected with their respective audiences. Ticket sales for the Top 20 were up a sharp 40% from a year ago which was not a holiday session, but down a troubling 23% from 2010′s record Easter weekend. Most holdovers did remain strong though.
Still attracting large crowds, Rio fended off the Tyler Perry machine to retain the number one spot with an estimated $26.8M over the holiday weekend dropping only 32% from its debut to boost the ten-day tally to a muscular $81.3M. The hold was on par with what Fox saw nine years ago with Ice Age which fell 35% in its second weekend in March 2002 which was not a holiday. With schools out on Good Friday, Rio had a more available audience that day helping to cushion the blow. Both films were directed by Carlos Saldanha as were the Ice Age sequels.
Rio’s sophomore decline was almost even with last spring’s leggy hit How To Train Your Dragon which slipped 34%, but easily bested the second weekend drops for recent spring toons Rango (-41%), Monsters vs. Aliens (-45%), and Horton Hears a Who (-45%). At its current pace, Rio could find its way to the neighborhood of $160M from North America and plenty more overseas. The international haul after three weeks soared to $204.7M after a sturdy $44.2M international frame putting the global gross at a towering $286M with much more to come. The worldwide take should easily climb past the $500M mark in the coming weeks as 3D animated kidpics, especially ones set outside of the U.S., travel very well.
Tyler Perry scored the fourth biggest opening of his career with his latest comedy Madea’s Big Happy Family which debuted close behind in second place with an estimated $25.8M from 2,288 theaters for a robust $11,254 average. While on its way to being another moneymaker for the filmmaker and Lionsgate, this new PG-13 entry showed some audience erosion when compared to the director’s past films. Happy fell behind the openings of Perry’s last two Madea pics – 2006′s Madea’s Family Reunion ($30M) and 2009′s Madea Goes to Jail ($41M). Perry’s most recent comedy, last year’s Why Did I Get Married Too which bowed on Good Friday as well, also debuted better with $29.3M.
While Tyler Perry films tend to draw in his fan base on the first weekend and suffer large declines in following weeks – his films tend to make 45-48% of their totals in the first three days – Happy scored a rare A CinemaScore so word-of-mouth could allow for a slightly better road ahead. African Americans made up the usual share of the audience (81%) but females were a somewhat smaller portion of the crowd at 72%. Married Too was 80% female.
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson drew a solid crowd for their romantic drama Water for Elephants which premiered in third place with an estimated $17.5M. Based on the best-selling novel, the PG-13 film averaged $6,212 from 2,817 locations and played heavily to female audiences, lovers of the book, and Twilight fans that follow Pattinson religiously. Critics had mixed feelings but the built-in audiences came out anyway giving Fox the best opening for an adult drama this year so far. Mature-skewing thrillers and comedies have done exceptionally well this year, but regular dramas have seen more modest numbers on the first weekend. An A- CinemaScore suggests a good run ahead as counter-programming to a steady diet of testosterone flicks about to attack multiplexes.
