Reese Witherspoon Praised as ‘Modern Day Feminist’ at American Cinematheque Fete
The American Cinematheque honored Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and DreamWorks Animation honcho Jeffrey Katzenberg at the organization’s annual fundraising gala Friday night at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.
Witherspoon received the American Cinematheque Award, reserved for an extraordinary artist currently making a significant contribution to the art of the Moving Picture. Specifically not a lifetime achievement prize, it is meant for mid-career recognition. Recent honorees have included Matthew McConaughey, Jerry Bruckheimer, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon and Samuel L. Jackson.
“This whole experience is just overwhelming and unbelievable because I’m really just a girl from Nashville who had a dream,” Witherspoon said. “I grew up on backlots and on locations. I had my entire childhood on film. I went through puberty on film, which is something I don’t feel totally great about, but I don’t regret it at all. It’s preserved forever.”

Reese Witherspoon on How She’s Shaking Up Hollywood, and Why She Feels Like Gloria Steinem Told Her to Do Legally Blonde
Reese Witherspoon is a Woman of the Year because… “She’s making movies, telling stories, giving women opportunities—all because she wants her daughter to have an example of what it’s like to be a responsible human.”
—comedian and 2011 Woman of the Year Chelsea Handler
Just a few years ago, Reese Witherspoon was pitching a new movie to seven studio heads and requested an extra 30 minutes with each executive to ask one question: What do you have in the works for women? “Only one studio was developing something for a woman in the lead,” Witherspoon, 39, recalls. “They said, ‘We’re happy if you bring us something, but it’s not a part of our development.’ ” Stunned, Witherspoon started obsessing over the deficit—bringing it up at dinner parties and business meetings, to a chorus of women saying, “We know!” Yeah, I’ll bring you something, she decided.
So in 2012, Witherspoon cofounded a production company, Pacific Standard, with producer Bruna Papandrea; the duo began buying up books and scripts with female protagonists to turn into films and TV series. And by 2015, Witherspoon found out just how winning her company’s by-and-about-women formula could be. Wild and Gone Girl, its first two films, featured women not as sidekicks or arm candy but as leading ladies who go through unique personal journeys. Stars Rosamund Pike, Laura Dern, and, yes, Witherspoon herself were all nominated for Oscars—and the films banked more than $400 million worldwide at the box office. With her producing and acting credits, Witherspoon landed on Forbes’ list of highest-paid actresses and on Time’s 100 Most Influential People list. Now she’s breaking into a full-on sprint toward equality: Pacific Standard has 32 projects in the works that put women front and center. “Reese gave me the opportunity with Hot Pursuit where I was producing, where I was a main character, where I got to play a strong, Latina woman,” says Sofía Vergara. “It’s amazing, Reese is such a tiny little thing, but she’s such a strong woman—she knows what she wants, and she gets what she wants.”
With her producing business booming, Witherspoon felt she could take on another new challenge this year: a fashion brand. She launched Draper James, a Southern-inspired clothing and home line, with a flagship store in Nashville. Lest you think she’s superhuman, though, she hasn’t taken an acting gig in over a year, so she could spend time with her husband, Jim Toth, and three kids, Ava, 16, Deacon, 12, and Tennessee, 3. (And yes, they are the cutest.)

Matthew McConaughey To Present Reese Witherspoon With American Cinematheque Honor
Matthew McConaughey will present Reese Witherspoon with the midcareer American Cinematheque Award during the organization’s annual gala October 30 at the Hyatt Regency in Century City. Kenny Chesney will perform at the event, which also will honor DreamWorks Animation chief Jeffery Katzenberg with the first-ever Sid Grauman Award.
McConaughey was the recipient of the 2014 American Cinematheque Award so he knows the drill; Witherspoon in fact was one of his co-stars who offered up tributes to him. The award is given to filmmakers “who [are] fully engaged in his or her work,” and “committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion picture.” The Cinematheque said her selection was unanimous, citing her work as both an actress and producer.
Katzenberg’s inaugural award is for an individual who has made a significant contribution to the Hollywood film industry in the continuing advancement of theatrical exhibition.
Paul Flattery and Barbara Smith are executive producing this year’s show, Irene Crinita will produce, and Corrine Mann is the event producer.

Reese Witherspoon to Receive American Cinematheque Award
The American Cinematheque will honor Reese Witherspoon with its annual award Oct. 30 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, the org announced today (July 23rd).
Witherspoon was most recently Oscar-nominated for lead actress in 2014’s “Wild,” which was produced by her Pacific Standard production company.
Rick Nicita, American Cinematheque chairman said: “Reese Witherspoon’s career is a perfect example of an actress flourishing in today’s world. She achieved commercial success early in comedies like ‘Election,’ ‘Legally Blonde’ and ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and then added major critical success to her resume with movies such as ‘Walk the Line,’ for which she received the Academy award for best actress. She has refused to be limited to only certain types of roles and has continued to impress with her varied choices, ranging from smaller roles in dramas such as ‘Mud’ to a tour-de-force, Oscar-nominated performance last year in ‘Wild.’ She is an active and successful movie producer who is moving her career forward both behind and in front of the camera. The most appropriate role for Reese Witherspoon today is role model.”
The annual gala is a major fundraiser for the American Cinematheque and honors actors in mid-career who are making significant contributions to the film biz. Matthew McConaughey was last year’s honoree.
Besides “Wild,” Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard, in which she is partnered with Bruna Papandrea, also produced last year’s “Gone Girl.” She has also been active in charities including the Children’s Defense Fund, on whose board she serves; the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center; Save the Children; and Stand Up to Cancer.
The Teen Choice Awards nominees have recently been announced, and Reese has scored two nominations – one each for Wild and Hot Pursuit. See the full list of nominees here. You can vote online from later today at www.teenchoice.com/
