Academy Award®-winning actress Reese Witherspoon will be a presenter at the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony, telecast producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer announced today.
In 2005 Witherspoon received her first Oscar® nomination and took home the award for her leading performance as June Carter in “Walk the Line.” She’ll be seen next in “Water for Elephants” and “This Means War.” Her other film credits include “Monsters vs Aliens,” “Four Christmases,” “Penelope,” “Rendition,” “Sweet Home Alabama” and the “Legally Blonde” films.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2010 will be presented on Sunday, February 27, 2011, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live on the ABC Television Network. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.

Last year it was reported that Reese would be fronting a new movie entitled The Pioneer Woman, and later that year a writer was attached. However, we’ve heard nothing more about it since then, and Ree Drummond, the author of the book the film is based on, says she hasn’t heard anything either:
Ree & Reese: Ree Drummond, whose blog, ThePioneerWoman.com, led to the publication in 2009 of the best seller The Pioneer Woman Cooks, now has a best-selling memoir, The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels — A Love Story. It lands at No. 20 [on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list]. Drummond’s new book tells how she met and married her husband, Ladd. They live on a working ranch in Oklahoma with their four kids. Last year, Columbia Pictures said it had optioned The Pioneer Woman with Reese Witherspoon in mind to star. Drummond says she hasn’t heard anything since then. Is Witherspoon right for the part? Drummond says, “I’m kind of an Amazon woman compared to her, but I couldn’t be more pleased.”

A very low quality new individual poster of Reese as Marlena in Water For Elephants has just found it’s way online! The picture looks like it was taken by camera, and it’s very blurry, but you can still how gorgeous it is! Marlena is seen posing with the elephant ‘star’ of the film, Rosie.
I’ve also added another new poster, one that focusses on Robert Pattinson, but Reese and Christoph Waltz can be seen in the background (in what looks to be a new photo!).
Reese Witherspoon thinks it can be “dangerous” when movie stars don’t have hobbies.
The 34-year-old American actress is one of Hollywood’s most successful stars, having achieved critical acclaim for her roles in films varying from light-hearted comedies such as Legally Blonde to dramas including Walk the Line, the 2005 movie for which she won the best actress Oscar.
Reese takes her acting seriously, although is adamant her career will never rule her life. She has witnessed other A-list stars who have let jobs ruin their personal lives, and she has no plans to follow suit.
“I like to take classes, I read a lot – I have a lot of interests so your whole life isn’t just about making movies. That’s a dangerous place to be,” she asserted.
Reese admires Hollywood icons such as 61-year-old Meryl Streep, who has been nominated for an astounding 16 Academy Awards during her career, and has won two. However, the actress doesn’t intend on working quite as hard as Meryl, and counts spending time with her and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe’s two children; 11-year-old daughter Ava and seven-year-old son Deacon, as more important.
“As an actress, it would be lovely to think that we’re all Meryl Streep or Diane Keaton who just works endlessly but that’s not true,” she told Total Film.
“It’s important to cultivate a personal life that makes you just as happy as your professional life and I work really hard on that. I spend time with my kids and my girlfriends. It’s important to enrich yourself in lot of different ways.”
A new poster for Water For Elephants was released this week, and I added it into our Gallery a few days ago!

Vanity Fair released their Hollywood’s Top 40 list – an annual ranking of Hollywood’s biggest earners, which includes actors, producers and directors.
Top of the list is James Cameron, who earned an estimated $257 million dollars in 2010. The bulk of his earnings came from the 3D blockbuster Avatar.
Uber-hottie Johnny Depp made a huge leap from 21 in 2009 to number two in 2010. He earned $100 million from his movies Alice in Wonderland (also a 3D flick), Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and The Tourist alongside Angelina Jolie (who is three spots behind Jennifer Aniston at number 21).
Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tim Burton, Adam Sandler, Todd Phillips and Robert Downey Jr make up the rest of the Top 10.
The success of the Twilight series had turned its stars Taylor Lautner (9), Kristen Stewart (13) and Robert Pattison (15) into hot property, with all of them listed in this year’s list.
Rapper-turned-actor Will Smith fell short of the top 10 coming in at 11. He is on course to turning his kids, Jaden and Willow Smith, into top earners if rumours of an Annie remake are anything to go by.
Other stars who made it onto the list are:
Tyler Perry (17), Jennifer Aniston (18), Sandra Bullock (22), Daniel Craig (28), Tom Cruise (35), Reese Witherspoon (36) and Eddie Murphy (40).
