Pregnant Reese Witherspoon Hits Cannes in Fitted, Baby-Bump Enhancing LBD
Ooh la la!
A radiant Reese Witherspoon was all smiles when she stepped out in Cannes, France on Friday to promote her new film, Mud, in which she stars opposite Matthew McConaughey.
The pregnant star, who is expecting her first child with husband Jim Toth, chose a fitted black Versace mini dress with flattering ruched detail that enhanced her growing baby bump. She accessorized with diamond drop earrings, her massive engagement ring, bright fuchsia heels and black Versace sunglasses.
Despite being several months pregnant, the 36-year-old actress didn’t look the least bit jet-lagged at the premiere after having landed in the city the day before.
“The flight over was actually pretty good. I feel great,” she told Us Weekly on Thursday about her trip from LAX to France. “I’m excited about showing the movie. The energy here is great!”
That night, the This Means War actress and her CAA agent hubby attended the Ciroc Vodka Erno Laszlo dinner for The Paperboy, where Toth doted on his expectant spouse.
“She and Jim were talking closely…he was clearly protective of her whenever they were standing up or walking around, practically putting both arms around her,” a witness tells Us. While walking through the event and conversing with friends, the mama-to-be assured that she was “surprisingly not tired.” (Toth and Witherspoon ended up heading out around 11:15.)

Zillions of photos are going to be popping up throughout the day, so I am going to hold off adding anything to our Gallery just yet. Below is a preview photo, and check back throughout the day and weekend for the full batch – there will be a lot!
I will also be going through all the articles and reviews that pop up and start to post them throughout the day.

Comments Off on First two clips from “Mud”
The first two clips from Reese’s upcoming movie Mud have been released online today, in anticipation of it’s premiere at Cannes later this month. Unfortunately neither of them feature Reese, but they give us a good look at Mud and the two kids. I really like the feel of the movie that we get from these two clips, and I’m getting more excited to see more about it!
HitFix.com have an interesting preview of the movie’s chances at Cannes, which is worth a read.
RopeOfSilicon gives us the lowdown on the plot, and clips are embedded below:
McConaughey stars as the title character as it explores his friendship with a 14-year-old boy named Ellis (Tye Sheridan). The two first meet when Ellis and has best friend are exploring the nearby Mississippi river and discover a deserted island where they encounter Mud, a dirty, desperate yet oddly compelling stranger.
Mud is on the run for a crime of passion, and bounty hunters are closing in on him. Moved by the romantic notion of his story and intrigued by the promise of a great adventure, the boys conspire to aid Mud in his escape and reunite him with the love of his life, Juniper (Reese Witherspoon).

Comments Off on “Mud” to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival!
Walter Salles’ On the Road, Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy and Michael Haneke’s Amour will join Rust and Bone by Jacques Audiard and David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis for a trip to the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival.
Also screening in the competition are Holy Motors by Leos Carax, The Angels’ Share by Ken Loach, John Hillcoat’s Lawless, which stars Shia LaBoeuf, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce and Gary Oldman alongside Jessica Chastain in a Prohibition-era drama, and more U.S. titles such as Jeff Nichols’ Mud and Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly with Brad Pitt and Ray Liotta. All in all, U.S. filmmakers will have a strong presence on the Croisette this year.
President Gilles Jacob and artistic director Thierry Fremaux announced the official selection for the May 16-27 festival at a press conference in Paris late Thursday morning.
While the 2011 competition lineup was light on U.S. directors and star power, the Cannes team certainly made up for it this year. “American cinema has come back relatively en force,” Fremaux said.
Pitt, Robert Pattinson, Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard and Matthew McConaughey — who both have multiple projects in Cannes — will add glam to the fest as they make their way down the world’s most famous cinema catwalk.
Back when she was in Rio earlier in the month, Reese gave an interview to a media website/TV show called Omelete. They talked about a variety of things including where Reese keeps her Oscar, whether she wants to go back to Stanford to study, her new film Mud, and more. Watch it below…
O Omelete esteve no Rio de Janeiro para entrevistar a atriz Reese Witherspoon, que veio ao Brasil divulgar Guerra É Guerra. Ela fala da sua participação na comédia romântica de ação, do seu Oscar, de seus projetos futuros e do que anda lendo ultimamente, entre outras curiosidades.
Dumas, Ark. seldom gets attention in national news, but when two A-List celebrities come into town, Arkansas gets its name on the map. When Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey came to town, people were wondering if the world was coming to an end. Luckily, it’s not, and the two were in town to shoot a movie called “Mud.”
Jeff Nichols, a native award-winning Arkansan, brings his next feature to Southeast Arkansas. The movie was filmed in the areas of Dumas, Dewitt and Stuttgart.
The cast and crew only shot in Arkansas for two weeks, but that was enough time to get people buzzing about “Mud.”
Area residents had the opportunity to participate in the film as extras and stand-ins. They needed residents to play high school teens. The movie asked people who were teenagers between 16 and 20 years old to participate in the movie as extras.
Dumas was thrilled to hear that a movie was to be filmed featuring parts of the town, especially one starring Reese Witherspoon.
The financial benefits defiantly outweighed the inconvenience in the street closings and local business closings. Multiple businesses were paid for the use of their store fronts, parking lots and the entirety of buildings.
