A few celebrities in the press promoting new works have mentioned Reese as one of their favourites recently!
In the Dec. 10 issue of Billboard magazine, where Swift covers the magazine as it’s Woman of the Year, she says, “I have a lot of role models. Faith Hill is a big role model. Reese Witherspoon is a role model of mine – she’s not in music, but I love everything she stands for. Shawn Colvin is a huge role model for me. Her writing has been consistently great and thoughtful…” (huffingtonpost.com)
In exchange for the honor, we asked the star to tell us which Hollywood ladies she admires. “I really like Reese Witherspoon. Anne Hathaway, I really like,” she said. “I love all their work.” (mtv.com)
THR: Whom do you most admire in Hollywood?
Fonda: Interestingly enough, one of the women I’ve always admired is Sherry Lansing. I got to know her when I was at Columbia Pictures working on a film about nuclear energy that Michael Douglas produced, The China Syndrome. Her grace on the job, her kindness, the generosity of her spirit — they all really, really struck me, which is one of the reasons that I’m so excited about getting this award. I also very much admire Helen Mirren, Vanessa Redgrave and Meryl Streep, who did her first movie, Julia, with me. I’m probably one of the very first people who ever saw her onscreen. I just am in total awe of her! She’s beyond anything one could ever imagine an actor to be. There’s so much talent out there — female talent of all ages, and I just love watching them all work. Whether it’s Reese Witherspoon or one of my favorites, Annette Bening. (hollywoodreporter.com)
