Reese Witherspoon Opens Draper James in Dallas, Talks HBO, Jessica Alba, Malcolm Mitchell and Fashion

Next month the entrepreneurial actress starts shooting “Home Again,” a new film produced by Nancy Meyers that her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer has written the script for and will also produce.

In the increasingly crowded field of actresses-turned-entrepreneurs, Reese Witherspoon certainly ranks near the top, having just opened her second Draper James store, at Highland Park Village in Dallas.

The Southern-inspired collection debuted as an e-commerce business last May and its first boutique bowed in Nashville, Tenn., last fall.

En route to Wednesday’s press day, an in-store luncheon and launch party for the new 1,800-square-foot Draper James boutique, Witherspoon said, “Ever since we went live about a year ago, Dallas has been one of our top cities. Customers in Dallas just really seem to love the brand, which is a celebration of Southern lifestyle. I’ve always been a big fan of the Highland Park Village. It’s a great place for communities and families to get together, to enjoy a meal and to see a movie.”

Interior designer Mark D. Sikes created the store’s welcoming Southern aesthetic with contemporary accents. His work can also be seen in Draper James’ Nashville store and the New Orleans-born Witherspoon is currently working with him on a new home in Nashville as well.

Having hosted events with writers like Emily Giffin, who wrote “First Comes Love” and Kimberly Whitman of “Monograms for the Home” in the Nashville store, Draper James plans to have book signing parties for other authors in the Dallas location. Through Pacific Standard, the production company she cofounded with Bruna Papandrea, Witherspoon has secured the film rights for numerous titles including Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” before it was published. As a literacy advocate, the actress is also big on posting about her favorite reads via Twitter and Instagram. She also recruited NFL rookie Malcolm Mitchell to join her book club, and the pair have tweeted book recommendations.

Witherspoon said, “I was just so inspired by his story and how important books have become in his life. He’s inspired a lot of people to expand their literary knowledge. I love that he’s been so open about it and he’s also written a book himself.”

Reese did a live Facebook chat yesterday, and chatted about the possibility of further sequels to Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama, her upcoming movie Home Again, Wild, and her dogs … among many other things! Watch the full live chat at ETOnline.

Reese Witherspoon Is Down to Make More Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama Movies

Without a question, two of Reese Witherspoon’s most beloved films are Legally Blonde (2001) and Sweet Home Alabama (2002). They’re untouchable pieces of entertainment that most of us can quote verbatim. (I call lies on anyone who says they haven’t tried the bend-and-snap. I’m doing it right now.)

And Witherspoon knows just how classic these two gems are. She already made a sequel to Legally Blonde in 2003, but get this: She is down as hell to bring Elle Woods to life again and do another Sweet Home Alabama flick. Proceeds to blast Hoku’s “Perfect Day” at frightening decibels.

”[Legally Blonde] was really fun,” Witherspoon said during a recent Facebook Live chat. “A lot of people have asked me if we’re going to make another Legally Blonde, and we’re thinking about it.” But what would the plot be? An Elle Woods baby? Paulette Bonafonté gets her own talk show? The RETURN OF VIVIENNE KENSINGTON?! The possibilities are endless.

As are the possibilities for a Sweet Home Alabama sequel. Don’t get too excited, though: There are no concrete plans in the works. However, Witherspoon is ready to get country the second everyone else gets on board. (And isn’t that the hardest part?)

“We are not making a Sweet Home Alabama sequel that I know of,” she said. “But if Disney wants to make a sequel, they can just call me: I would happily make Sweet Home Alabama 2.”

December 17, 2015   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Pacific StandardComments Off on Jean-Marc Vallee to Direct All Episodes of Nicole Kidman-Reese Witherspoon HBO Limited Series

Jean-Marc Vallee to Direct All Episodes of Nicole Kidman-Reese Witherspoon HBO Limited Series

The ‘Wild’ director and his producing partner will also exec produce ‘Big Little Lies.’

HBO’s Big Little Lies adaptation continues to draw A-list talent.

Jean-Marc Vallee (Wild, Dallas Buyers Club) has signed onto direct all seven episodes of the Nicole Kidman- and Reese Witherspoon-headlined limited series, the pay cabler announced Thursday.

Additionally, the Oscar-nominated helmer and his producing partner Nathan Ross have come onboard the series, which hails from TV veteran David E. Kelley, as executive producers. The project marks a reunion for Vallee, Witherspoon and Big Little Lies co-star Laura Dern, who all worked together on Wild. The film earned Oscar nominations for both actresses. Before Wild, Vallee earned an Oscar nomination for film editing for Dallas Buyers Club.

In addition to Dern, Shailene Woodley, Adam Scott and Zoe Kravitz have joined the limited series in recent weeks.

Witherspoon also will executive produce Little Big Lies, like Wild, through her Pacific Standard banner. Her producing partner, Bruna Papandrea, also will executive produce along with Kelley and Kidman, who will produce through her Blossom Films shingle with production partner Per Saari.

“I am thrilled to be making my TV debut with HBO tackling this material,” said Vallee. “After reading David’s amazing scripts, I spontaneously jumped at the opportunity to reteam with Reese and Bruna, as well as collaborating with Nicole and Per.”

Vallee was previously attached to direct the pilot episode of the series. However, his increased involvement is the latest in a growing trend. HBO found similar success when Cary Fukunaga signed on to helm the entire first season of True Detective, for which he won an Emmy. HBO’s sister channel Cinemax boasts Oscar-winning director Steven Sodenbergh, who has directed every episode of period drama The Knick, which he also exec produces.

Australian novelist Liane Moriarty will serve as a producer on Big Little Lies, which debuted atop the New York Times’ best-seller list. She previously penned best-sellers What Alice Forgot, Three Wishes, The Hypnotist’s Love Story and The Husband’s Secret.

Vallee, whose credits also include Demolition, is repped by David Weber.

Laura Dern Boards HBO’s Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman Drama

Jean-Marc Vallee will direct multiple episodes of the David E. Kelley limited series co-starring Shailene Woodley and Adam Scott.

HBO’s Big Little Lies continues to add to its impressive cast.

Enlightened alum Laura Dern is returning to the premium cable network with a co-starring role in limited series Big Little Lies, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The casting also marks a Wild reunion for Dern with star/EP Reese Witherspoon.

From David E. Kelley, the comedic drama centers on three mothers (Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley) of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder. Dern will take on the role of Renata Klein, a powerful career woman and anti-bullying crusader who is at the center of schoolyard politics on and off the playground. Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) also co-stars as Witherspoon’s husband.

Based on Liane Moriarty’s book of the same name, the drama hails from David E. Kelley (Boston Legal, Ally McBeal) who is writing the limited series. HBO landed the project in May following a bidding war with Netflix.

Kidman and her Blossom Films banner, as well as Witherspoon and her Pacific Standard shingle, optioned the rights to the twisty thriller/soap and No. 1 New York Times best-seller, which was published in July, as a potential feature film before refocusing the drama for television. Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club) will direct multiple episodes of the series.

November 10, 2015   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Awards & Nominations, Career, Gallery Updates, News & Gossip, Pacific Standard, Public Appearances, The Family, Video UpdatesComments Off on Reese at Glamour’s Women Of The Year Awards

As posted about previously, Reese is one of Glamour magazine’s Women Of The Year for 2015, and last night she attended the awards ceremony in New York to receive her honour. Reese was presented with her statue by Goldie Hawn – one of her acting heroes – and Reese gave an impassioned speech about female empowerment in Hollywood. She wore a pretty blue floral embroidered dress by Erdem for the event; I really love this look on her, and it’s great to see her wearing something new! Reese’s husband accompanied her to the event and they posed together backstage.

Check out our first HQ photos from the night in the Gallery, and scroll on down this post to read Reese’s full speech, articles from the event, and some video footage from the red carpet.

Reese Witherspoon’s Moving Speech at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards: “Like Elle Woods, I Do Not Like to be Underestimated.”

At tonight’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards, Goldie Hawn presented Reese Witherspoon with an award for her work creating stronger roles for women in film. Witherspoon’s speech was so inspiring and powerful, you’ll want to read every bit of it in its entirety. Here it is, below.

Reese Witherspoon: “I can’t thank Glamour magazine enough and Conde Nast and Cindi for asking me to be here. You just made this night so amazing. These incredible, inspiring women are doing so many things to change how we perceive women, and I hope Amy Schumer and all the other nominees that when you consider making your biopic, you’ll give me the rights first, which would be great. Although Amy, I’ll have to play your grandmother in the movie (by Hollywood standards), and you’ll probably have to play your own mother.

I’m so excited that so many young women are here tonight.This all started for me when I was a little girl. I was 14 years old when I learned that I love acting, and I still do. Acting allows me to slip into the skin of all kinds of different women, and not in a creepy Silence of the Lambs way…but in a way that lets me explore the full spectrum of humanity. Every woman I’ve ever played is passionate and strong and flawed, except for Tracy Flick. She’s 100% perfect, but she made me say that. But I also learned at 14 years old that I was ambitious. Really ambitious. Did I say that out loud? Let’s talk about ambition.
