Reese remains a popular cover girl around the world – we have scans from Nouveau magazine in the Netherlands, and Malaysian Women’s Weekly for you today, along with some clippings from the People Awards Season Special magazine. I like the feature title of ‘Hollywood’s Guardian Angel’ in Women’s Weekly 😉
Reese can be seen on the cover of the new April issue of Marie Claire UK – it’s the same interview as the earlier US edition, but it has a couple of new photos from the shoot. I love this photoshoot, and I’m glad they’ve chosen a slightly different shot for this cover. Pick up a copy asap if you can, and find the scans in our Gallery:
Reese made an appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday to promote A Wrinkle In Time. She chatted about her recent visit to her Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Time’s Up, the importance of representing women in film, Big Little Lies season 2, Little Fires Everywhere with Kerry Washington, and her upcoming Untitled Morning TV Show with Jennifer Aniston. Reese also received a special message from Dolly Parton who had been on the show last week; Reese mentioned that she “has a show coming on in about a month” in which she interviews Dolly Parton, so we’ll keep an ear out for more information on that in the coming weeks! Watch the interview below, and find screencaptures in our Gallery:
Lots of new A Wrinkle In Time stills & posters have been released recently, and our Gallery has been updated with them in beautiful high quality. Along with the stills and some international posters are high quality versions of the artwork used for the posters, which are intricate and colourful!
Reese promoted A Wrinkle In Time on two US late night chat shows this week – The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and Late Night With Seth Meyers. On Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night, Reese chatted about a Bruce Springsteen Broadway Show she went to, Oprah’s on-set ‘rules’, Times Up, and Big Little Lies season 2 (they start it next week!). She then met US figure skating Olympian Adam Rippon, who she had shared some mutual admiration with during the recent Winter Olympics. Reese wore a little blue dress by Roksanda on this show.
The day after, she made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and chatted about the movie and her co-stars, her appearance hosting SNL in 2001 (that was Seth Meyers’ first appearance on the show), and Big Little Lies season 2. Reese hilariously demonstrated how she responded when she found out that Meryl Streep agreed to join the show! I loved this interview and Reese’s look on the show – it reminded me of late 90’s Reese!
There a few clips from the show further down this post (we’ll have more in our video archive when it’s launched) and photos and HD screencaptures in the Gallery:
‘A Wrinkle in Time’: Stars get frank about motherhood, parity and Oprah for president
It turns out, Reese Witherspoon is a killer travel guide.
Last year, when she, Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling moved with the cast of A Wrinkle in Time (in theaters Friday) from California to New Zealand, it was Witherspoon who knew about all the best spots and local adventures.
“Reese has friends in any corner of the world; generous friends who say, ‘We’d like to take you on a helicopter tour,’ ” says Kaling, 38, sitting next to a laughing Winfrey, 64, and Witherspoon, 41.
“Or, ‘Would you like to come to our island?’ ” Winfrey says.
The fast friends represent director Ava DuVernay’s vision of what a modern adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic 1962 sci-fi novel looks like in 2018: Take protagonist Meg Murry (in the book, a young white girl from Connecticut), and cast her as a black child from Compton. Replace the three granny-esque “Mrs.” — celestial guides who mentor Meg — with black, white and Asian faces.
“I just wanted to do something that would make a kid go, ‘Wow, I want to fly like that.’ But who’s the person flying? It’s the person who never gets to fly. The black girl,” says DuVernay. “It’s a really big deal to have a scene in the movie, where a black girl says to a Caucasian boy, ‘Do you trust me?’ And he says yes and he follows her. I can’t think of another film where that happens.
“She’s not a Jedi. She’s not a superhero. She’s a girl in a plaid shirt and glasses and she does extraordinary things. That touched me and I related to it.”
Reese Witherspoon visited the United Nations in New York City earlier today, and participated in a press conference to mark International Women’s Day. Reese talked about a variety of issues affecting women with Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the UN Women Executive Director, and actress and playwright Danai Gurira. Read more about how the UN marked International Women’s Day below, and find a video of the press conference. High quality photos are in our Gallery for you. Fantastic to see Reese speaking somewhere as illustrious as the United Nations about a topic she is so passionate about.
Commemoration of International Women’s Day amidst unprecedented global movement for women’s rights
Rural and urban activists take centre stage as Monica Ramirez, Reese Witherspoon, Danai Gurira join the event at the United Nations
Coming on the heels of unprecedented global efforts for women’s rights, equality and justice, International Women’s Day, 8 March, will put a spotlight on the tireless work of activists who have been central to these extraordinary movements worldwide. Under this year’s theme, “Time is Now: Rural and Urban Activists Transforming Women’s Lives”, events around the world will capture the vibrant work of activists and their mobilization for change.
Through marches of solidarity, viral social media campaigns, cultural efforts and powerful grassroots organizing, people across the world are galvanizing for a future that is gender equal. While some of these movements have captured the headlines, other efforts persevere far away from the limelight. Rural and urban activists continue to mobilize, disrupt the status quo, and influence a broad range of policy, legislative and social reforms, from founding projects to end violence at the workplace to providing access to services for ethnic, immigrant and minority women, working every day to leave no one behind.
UN Women Executive Director, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, said: “We know that healthy societies include a wide mix of voices, yet millions of women around the world are being silenced and their potential cramped. The current solidarity movements have to be a tipping point for accountability; an end to impunity and the cyclical poverty of women in both rural and urban areas. Lively political activism from both men and women must target change for those who need it most”.
The female A Wrinkle In Time cast appeared on US chat show Nightline yesterday, and chatted about their films, the dolls made of their characters, and the changes happening in Hollywood at the moment. Here’s the video:
