Happy Four Christmases day! Reese’s new Holiday romp is in theatres in North America so be sure to go out and check it out this Holiday weekend. I have tons of things to add tomorrow so be sure to come back for lots of updates! I didn’t get time today because I got caught up with some early guests for my own festivities. Lastly, I’d also like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating!
Here are some critic reviews. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on Reese and the film by commenting or in the forum. Reviews are mixed.

And Ms. Witherspoon serves as a game comic sidekick to the irrepressible Mr. Vaughn, who basically does what he always does, which is to stammer, bluster and wheedle his way through a performance that scrambles the distinction between brute and wimp. He has a tendency, slyly mocked in a church pageant scene, to upstage whomever he’s paired with, and Ms. Witherspoon, though a fine comedian in her own right, is perhaps a bit too decorous and obliging.
From: Baltimore Sun
Witherspoon is at her most winning, struggling to control situations where that’s clearly impossible.
What makes Four Christmases work, despite a few missteps into the overbroad, is that it starts with the ridiculous, then moves toward the sublime. By the end of the film, the audience has taken the same journey as Brad and Kate, and comes to the same realizations about family and relationships: They may not always be fun, and they may take work, but often they’re all we have.
Reese was just on Good Morning America. I have added caps from the interview and the clip may be streamed after the cut.
The showed some new scenes from Four Christmases, and Reese laughed it up as she discussed filming with Vince Vaughn. She also discussed how she’ll spend the holidays stating that lots of cooking and caroling is a staple for her family’s traditions. She said one of the reasons she wanted to take part in Christmases was because while she wasn’t a child of divorce her children are and wanted to see it from other’s eyes and about it. It was a good little interview and I’m sure you will enjoy it!

These past few days I have been adding images from the Four Christmases premiere. Reese wore a navy satin Nina Ricci bustier dress with beaded embroidery and bustled hem. I really love her look and the dress detailing.
For the pictures, I’ve added a whopping 600+ images! Varried in HQ and MQ. Over 400 being hi-res. There’s bound to be some duplicates in here somewhere, but I’m about to head off for another update on the site so I’ll have to resume checks a little later. Either way it’s plenty to keep you occupied. 😉 Enjoy!
I have added a lot of images from Four Christmases. Including tons of production stills, official desktops and a promotional shoot. The movie comes out this Wednesday, the 26th!
Also, be sure to keep checking the TV Alerts. I just found out Reese is going to be on Good Morning America today, before her other scheduled appearance on Regis.
Reese Witherspoon tell USA Today, all she wants for Christmas is a new chicken coop!
The Oscar-winning actress and star of the upcoming Four Christmases says she’ll stick to family tradition this holiday: a big Southern-style dinner and caroling around the tree. On Christmas Eve, she’ll go to church and watch the annual pageant where her children, Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5, will perform.
But after Santa has arrived and the last bites of Witherspoon’s home-cooked specialties (turnip greens, pecan-coated sweet potatoes and sugar-baked ham) have been eaten, the actress says she’ll retreat to the farm she owns outside Los Angeles.
“We feed the chickens and the pigs — I have two pigs, and boy are they really pigs. They just get down in that mud and roll around,” she says, painting a picture in stark contrast to her neatly pressed Derek Lam dress. “I like getting down in there and working in the garden. Oh, I want someone to build me a good chicken coop … like a man who can just get down there and build it … ooh.”
Yay! Reese is gonna be on some upcoming talk shows for Four Christmases! Can’t wait! Clips as always would be appreciated.

On November 16 Reese attended a press conference for Four Christmases. She looked absolutely cute! I have added pictures to the gallery.

Last night was the premiere of Reese’s new flick Four Christmases. She truly looked divine in a stunning cocktail dress and vintage tresses.
I’m just on my way to bed when I saw pictures have become available. There is tons so I will be back later with lots of images, stay tuned 😉
Reese is on the cover of the November 23 issue of Parade! Check out the cute photos of Ms. W and the fantastic article below. Reese talks mostly about family, her relationships and children.
“Do I need men? I don’t think it’s about needing men. It’s about love… Everybody needs love, Everyone deserves it.”
“Family is all we have in life, but I don’t know how I feel about marriage, Obviously, I’m not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again. You sort of reconstitute your family. You find a family, with people who come into your life for a reason.”
“It takes perseverance and determination for any young woman to navigate the movie business, It’s deeply offensive when they are objectified, treated like sex toys. It’s so easy to get attention early on in your career when you promote only the sexual side of yourself. It gains you popularity, but it doesn’t mean anything. Five years later, no one knows your name, and you wonder why.
ET’s Steven Cojocaru is with Reese Witherspoon as she reveals whether she has wedding bells in her future!
Cojo caught up with Reese as she was promoting her new film, Four Christmases. In the comedy, mayhem ensues when a couple, played by Reese and Vince Vaughn, visit all four of their divorced parents on Christmas Day.
Watch all the holiday catastrophes when Four Christmases hits theaters November 26th!
View the clip under the cut!
Just moments ago, Reese presented Male Vocalist of the Year to winner Kenny Chesney in Nashville, Tennessee.
I have updated the gallery with the first available pictures from the big event, 37 at this time. Miss Reese looked amazing in a beautiful black lace gown, silver accessories and red lips and nails! I must say one of her best looks in a long while! What a vision!
Reese was shown a few times in the audience during the Miley & Billy Ray Cyrus presentation and the Reba McEntire / Brooks & Dunn performance. She looked to be having a total blast! I sadly wasn’t able to make proper clips but I did film her presentation with my camera so the quality is super low but atleast you can her if we don’t get a better clip soon. View it here (Download Mirror #1). Check back tomorrow for more coverage.

Thanks to Lindsey for informing us that the ET report is available on their website, view it after the cut. It’s actually slightly different than the one that aired so a clip from the actual show is still welcomed!
“I love to cook — I make an applesauce cake every morning on Christmas morning,” says Reese. “There’s a lot of food involved in our Christmas.”
In Four Christmases, in theaters November 26, Reese and Vince find their annual holiday escape plans foiled when fog grounds their San Francisco flight. When their relatives catch wind that they’re still in town, they find themselves forced out of obligation to endure a Christmas get-together with each of their respective divorced parents and wild siblings, played by Robert Duvall, Jon Favreau, Mary Steenburgen, Dwight Yoakam, Tim McGraw, Kristin Chenoweth, Jon Voight and Sissy Spacek.
“Everyone can relate to having to travel and the burden of having to make it to different homes for Christmas,” says Vince. “We have the fun job of raising the stakes and going even further with it to make it funny.”
“I think a lot of us thought a lot about how important it is to accept your family for who they are,” says Reese about making the holiday comedy, adding, “Christmas is always great with kids around, so I’m really lucky I have two great kids. We have our traditions: we get to make cookies for Santa before Christmas Eve, and hang stockings and decorate the tree.”
