Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria to Walk 2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet Together
Women in Hollywood are preparing to make a statement at the 2018 Golden Globes.
As the countdown continues for the start of award season, two beloved actresses are teaming up for Sunday’s big show.
E! News has learned Reese Witherspoon and Eva Longoria will walk the red carpet together Sunday night in support of Time’s Up.
The movement launched on New Year’s Day aims to promote equality and safety in the workplace. The initiative also addresses legislation, corporate policy and hiring practices.
According to the New York Times, Time’s Up has also been urging women to wear black at the Golden Globes to use the red carpet as an opportunity to raise awareness about the initiative.
“This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment,” Eva shared with the publication. “For years, we’ve sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This time the industry can’t expect us to go up and twirl around. That’s not what this moment is about.”
Jennifer Aniston, Shonda Rhimes, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Rashida Jones are just some of the many Hollywood stars also supporting the initiative in various ways.
The Blast was first to report Eva and Reese’s red carpet news.

Powerful Hollywood Women Unveil Anti-Harassment Action Plan
Driven by outrage and a resolve to correct a power imbalance that seemed intractable just months ago, 300 prominent actresses and female agents, writers, directors, producers and entertainment executives have formed an ambitious, sprawling initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in Hollywood and in blue-collar workplaces nationwide.
The initiative includes:
— A legal defense fund, backed by $13 million in donations, to help less privileged women — like janitors, nurses and workers at farms, factories, restaurants and hotels — protect themselves from sexual misconduct and the fallout from reporting it.
— Legislation to penalize companies that tolerate persistent harassment, and to discourage the use of nondisclosure agreements to silence victims.
— A drive to reach gender parity at studios and talent agencies that has already begun making headway.
— And a request that women walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes speak out and raise awareness by wearing black.

Reese Witherspoon, Ted Sarandos Co-Hosting Fundraiser for Gavin Newsom
Several of Hollywood’s politically minded elites will pay up to $29,200 apiece to gather Friday at the Pacific Palisades home of Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth to raise funds for Gavin Newsom’s campaign in his run for governor of California.
Beyond Witherspoon and Toth, the evening’s event is being co-hosted by Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos and his wife, Nicole Avant, the former U.S. ambassador to the Bahamas.
Other co-hosts include TV producer Steven Bochco and his wife, Dayna; Phoenix Pictures CEO Mike Medavoy and his wife, Irena; TV producer Ryan Murphy and his husband, David Miller; and ICM founding partner Chris Silbermann and his TV producer wife, Julia Franz.
The minimum “suggested contribution” to attend the gathering, according to the invitation, is $1,000, though $5,000 gets you a “co-host photo reception.” A “VIP clutch” goes for $10,000, and $29,200 is the “primary maximum” by law.
Newsom, a Democrat, is California’s lieutenant governor and was mayor of San Francisco from 2004-2010. He was an early advocate for the legalization of marijuana and same-sex marriage and is a vociferous critic of President Donald Trump.
The politician hosted The Gavin Newsom Show on Al Gore’s now-defunct Current TV and is married to Jennifer Siebel Newsom, an actress who produced the feminist-themed documentary movies Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In.

Comments Off on Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon and More Pass the Ball to Support Women’s Soccer
Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Zendaya and More Pass the Ball to Support Women’s Soccer
“What are you going to #PassTheBall for?”
That’s the question Julia Roberts asks in a fun PSA supporting the National Women’s Soccer League. Lifetime has teamed up with an all-star celebrity lineup including the mother of three, Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon, James Corden, Zendaya and David Beckham for the special campaign.
“By passing the ball, you will help get the word out about these amazing athletes and the game they love,” Roberts says in the video.
For the Oscar winner, soccer is close to her heart: her daughter and two sons all play the sport. “On weekends we usually hit about four games on Saturday and sometimes one on Sunday,” she shares exclusively with PEOPLE. “It’s thrilling to see a whole group of kids grow up.”
As for life as a soccer mom, Roberts calls it “a total commitment.” “It has to be a family commitment for sure,” she adds. “It’s wonderful to be outside watching kids play the game they love — watching them grow from little kids playing on half a field to young men and women playing their hearts out.”
Asked why it’s especially empowering see girls kick the ball alongside her daughter, Roberts says, “I remember growing up my brother played soccer in high school and we had a had soccer team, but I didn’t know any girls who played soccer back in ye olden days.
“So it’s great to see everybody have an opportunity to participate in what is in our house our favorite sport.”

Jamie Foxx Announces Telethon for Hurricane Harvey, Reportedly Featuring Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton
Hollywood’s A-listers continue to step up in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastating impact on Houston, Texas.
On Tuesday, Texas native Jamie Foxx announced on Instagram that there will be a telethon on Sept. 12 to raise money for those in need.
“Just wanted to let everyone in Texas know, we got you,” Foxx says, adding that he’s donated $25,000 to GlobalGiving, a non-profit organization that provides a global crowdfunding platform for grassroots charitable projects. “From a fellow Texan, my heart goes out. My prayers go out. September 12 we have a telethon that we’re doing. We’ll give you more details, so we can raise as much money as we can for everybody down there.”
The Sept. 12 telethon will take place simultaneously in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville, and will be aired by all the major networks for one hour, according to TMZ. The star-studded event is reportedly being organized by rapper Bun B and the same team behind the widely praised Ariana Grande One Love Manchester concert.
Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton will reportedly host from Nashville on Sept. 12, while the Los Angeles portion will be hosted by Foxx and tentatively Hilary Duff, who was born in Houston.
Fellow Houston native Michael Strahan is being tapped to host the New York portion of the telethon, TMZ also reports, and organizers are also hoping to secure Kelly Rowland as well as Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons — both born and raised in Houston as well.
Stars such as Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson and the Kardashian family have already donated to Hurricane Harvey relief, most notably Sandra Bullock, who donated $1 million to the Red Cross on Tuesday.
