I regret to announce that I have decided to leave the staff of Glamour Reese Witherspoon. Before anyone freaks out, let me just say that Mycah will continue the site as it is – GRW is not closing down! It is only me who is stepping down. The site is not going anywhere. Mycah has been without internet connection for a few months but will be back with updates soon.
I have been a fan of Reese for over a decade and running the site since 2005 so this is not a decision that I came to lightly. In fact, I have been thinking about it for a good while. While I still adore Reese Witherspoon and will continue to follow her career, perhaps occasionally report news here and stop by at the forum, I do not have the motivation to continue running the site. I suppose this mainly sources from the fact that Reese has been acting in movies very little lately. While I sincerely respect the fact that she prefers to spend time with her family, out of the spotlight, it is not super-motivating for me to continue running the site. I know that we have Four Christmases to look forward to but I am personally not very much into romcoms and I would prefer to see Reese work on something more substancial and challenging a la Walk the Line.
Who knows, I may very well be back in the future if things change but for now, I feel I am not doing justice on the site when I have so little motivation – and time – to update.
See you around!
Many fans have asked us where Reese is and what she is up to at the moment so I thought I’d write a little catch up. Four Christmases is currently in post-production and will be released in the US on November 26, 2008. Penelope is already available on DVD in many countries, including the UK, and will be released in the US on July 15 (as earlier reported). Reese has presumably finished recording her voice for for Monsters vs. Aliens. Besides her other voice role in The Bear and the Bow, we do not know what exactly she will take on next but I doubt she’ll film anything this summer. You may also have been new Avon commercials airing worldwide.
Currently Reese is reportedly living in Jake Gyllenhaal’s London home in Notting Hill as he films scenes from his new film, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
One insider reveals: “Reese loves England and has been really looking forward to spending this time living with Jake.”
It sounds like Reese’s summer will be a fun and relaxing one!

The 2008 Teen Choice Awards nominations have been announced and Miss Reese has gotten a nod for Choice Movie Actress: Drama for Rendition! Jake Gyllenhaal also got a nod for the film, for Choice Movie Actor: Drama.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s divorce was finalized Thursday, Los Angeles court records show, indicating that financial and custody settlements have been reached.
Details weren’t immediately available, however, the ex-couple have continually sought a shared custody arrangement over children Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4.
The documents, dated June 12, only read: “[The court finds] the parties have settled all their remaining issues in these proceedings.”
I managed to squeeze in an update today, which consists of three sets of photos of Reese in Tokyo these past few days – as previously mentioned. She looks stunning and classy at each event so be sure to view the shots below!

Miss Witherspoon is currently in Japan as an Avon Ambassador, bringing a message of empowerment and hope to the Asia Pacific Region. She has attended a couple of events and, as you can see from the preview on the right, she’s looking absolutely lovely.
Unfortunately I am unable to update the gallery with pictures at the moment because I just moved (to another country as well) and I do not have stable net connection. Mycah is also very busy because she started a new job earlier this week. We will get to it as soon as possible so please bear with us as usual. We hope to get some planned renovations done starting next month and catch up on the inbox. Things have been so hectic in both of our lives recently so we’re a little behind and we apologize for this.
Today, Avon Global Ambassador, Reese Witherspoon visited Japan to bring a message of empowerment and hope to the Asia Pacific region. Ms. Witherspoon was the guest of honor at a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony where she met female breast cancer survivors. In addition to the tea ceremony, Ms. Witherspoon met with Avon Representatives and introduced the region to Avon’s first-ever global fundraising product, the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet.
Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon will star in an untitled Cameron Crowe romantic comedy adventure at Columbia Pictures.
Columbia was the winning bidder, beating out four rival studios, in landing the fully developed project, which is being produced by Scott Rudin. Crowe, who wrote the screenplay, is also producing.
Studio is keeping the logline of the contemporary-set project under wraps.
What a fun surprise! Reese Witherspoon attended a new event yesterday in Beverly Hills – the 2nd Annual Kidstock Music And Art Festival – and she’s sporting a brand new hairdo! It reminds me a little bit of her Sweet Home Alabama look. Very cute!
