Archive for the ‘“Monsters Vs. Aliens”’ Category
I’m continuing to work on the Public Appearances section of our Gallery, and have now completed the 2009 category. We already had photos from all the events Reese attended, but many have now been replaced with HQ versions, plus there are several additional photos too. The focal point of the year was the promotion of Monsters Vs Aliens which had a big world tour, and Reese also continued her work with Avon by attending events for them. I particularly love her looks at the Berlin photocall and premiere for Monsters Vs Aliens! Pictures from press conferences are always a highlight, too, and we have over 100 gorgeous HQs from the Monsters Vs Aliens one. As always – enjoy! 😀

A couple of months ago I added screencaptures from the Monsters Vs Aliens DVD extras, and a lovely visitor expressed interest in screencaptures from the movie itself … so that’s what you have today! HD screencaptures from the film can now be seen in our Gallery. I’ve added a minimal amount of screencaptures as it’s only an animated role, but I’ve captured all scenes so you can see what Reese’s character Susan/Ginormica gets up to in the movie. I thought it was a fun, entertaining movie, and Reese really brought Susan to life in such an endearing way!

I rented a copy of Monsters Vs Aliens to see if Reese was featured in any of the extras, and lucky for us, she was! The Modern Monster Movie-Making featurette on the DVD had footage of the main cast in the studio recording their voices, and there is a short but sweet bit on Reese. In it, she talks about breaking the speakers with her shrieking, and how funny some of the lines were. I’ve added screencaps from this featurette to our Gallery, and I also decided to make a few caps from it of Reese’s character Susan Ginormica.
If you’re interested in seeing more, better quality, screencaps of Reese’s character in this movie then let me know, as I will be able to make HD caps from the film if you’re interested.

Movie stars often talk about how they aren’t really like the characters they play on screen.
Reese Witherspoon proves the point with silence. Her character Lisa in How Do You Know, the new James L. Brooks comedy opening Friday, is as taciturn as Witherspoon is talkative.
“I’ve never really played a character that wasn’t very verbal,” she said in an interview. “I mean, all I do is talk in movies!
“So this is a nice departure for me, to learn to, as my mother always says, ‘Never miss an opportunity to shut up and listen!’”
Good thing Witherspoon didn’t heed that advice making Walk the Line, the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic, where she played June Carter Cash and both talked and sang her way to an Oscar.
In How Do You Know, Witherspoon’s plays a baseball star who would rather get in touch with her ball and glove than her emotions. She amusingly finds herself romantically involved with two men: stereotypical jock Matty (Owen Wilson) and sensitive businessman George (Paul Rudd). (A fourth character, played by Jack Nicholson, is there to complicate their lives in other ways.)
If this were a real-life romantic triangle and not a movie, Witherspoon would be talking the ear off a sympathetic friend or family member.
“Oh, yes. I talk endlessly about my romantic conflicts, my loves lost and gained — my life is a non-stop dialogue with my friends. So this very interior character, who knows she’s feeling things but she’s not sure what they are, really doesn’t know how to talk about them.
“And when people want to talk about it, Lisa wants them to stop talking. It’s a really interesting woman to see on film. Conversely, Paul’s character just can’t stop talking!”
So what would Witherspoon tell her intimate associates, if she were to find herself in the unlikely position of having two suitors at once? Which of the two guys, cocky Matty or chatty George, would she choose?

She’s an Oscar-winning actress and one of Hollywood’s hottest stars — but even Reese Witherspoon’s children, 9-year-old daughter Ava & 6-year-old-son Deacon, are surprisingly “embarrassed” of their uber-famous mom.
“My children are embarrassed at me all the time. They’re like ‘mom you’re being really stupid’,”Witherspoon told us in a recent interview. “When ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’ came out Ava told me I’m the coolest mom in the third grade. I said ‘can you put it on a piece of paper and sign it for me please’. I was cool once.”
And as cool and yet hot as the majority of men (and women) think Witherspoon is, she won’t be baring too much for the lights and camera.
“I had my first baby when I was 23, so for me, no. I’ve always been choosing roles knowing that I have a daughter and I have a responsibility to her and to the world to be representing women of strength,” the 33-year-old added. “These are the women I know in life. I think it’s a natural extension of parenthood for you to feel like you’re responsible for the worlds you create, whether they be silly or serious. I think you are responsible for the art you put in the world.”
While these are certainly inspiring words of wisdom, don’t be fooled — this mama was more than happy to embrace her childhood habits while lending her voice to “Monsters vs. Aliens”.
“It’s definitely not hard. It’s like you go in and it’s about how imaginative you can be. For me, that’s just a fantastic opportunity to be free and act like a 5-year-old,” Witherspoon added. “We just go in the sound booth and be silly and eat candy and drink caffeine and bounce off the walls. The older I get the more I regress. I really have just become very silly.”

Reese Witherspoon has revealed she would love to be invisible.
The Hollywood actress voices a character in new 3D animation film Monster Vs Aliens and said she’d like to try being invisible if she was a superhero.
She said: “It would be nice to have just every superpower, why do I have to choose just one?! I would probably choose invisibility, it would be nice to escape out of certain situations and of course spy on people.”
Reese, 32, added that she would use her powers for a bit of good and a bit of evil.
