February 26, 2008   •  Category: "Penelope", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on Reese Witherspoon and Christina Ricci Are Pros at Letting Go

There is a short video interview with Reese on People.com, check it out, the article is below. Captures and a downloadable file will come when we have time.

Reese Witherspoon and Christina Ricci have similar outlooks on dealing with very different struggles – just let it go.

In addition to producing and acting in the new flick Penelope, Witherspoon, 31, is also juggling single-motherhood. She tells the Associated Press that cutting herself some slack is the only way to get through.

February 22, 2008   •  Category: "Penelope", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on Witherspoon Back in Producer’s Chair with Penelope

She might be a tad shy about cracking the whip on set but Reese Witherspoon is every bit the shot-caller.

“I hate being in charge, so I’d say I’m more of a collaborator,” laughs the producer and co-star of the independent film “Penelope,” opening February 29.

“I don’t want to be the one to tell (the crew) that they have to stay for two extra hours or come in at 6 o’clock in the morning.”

Witherspoon’s production company, Type A Films, grossed $125 million worldwide five years ago with its first project, “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde.” Now Witherspoon, 31, is back in the producer’s chair with the magical love story “Penelope.”

“When my producing partner, Jennifer Simpson, brought me the script, I just loved the idea,” she remembers.

“There’s a great girl at the centre of the story who’s sassy and funny and smart and opinionated, yet she has obstacles to overcome.”

February 19, 2008   •  Category: "Penelope", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on About.com Article – Reese Talks About Penelope

The romantic fantasy movie Penelope is the first film Reese Witherspoon’s production company, Type A Films, developed from the ground up. Oscar-winner Witherspoon (Walk the Line) believes producing is a natural progression for an actor, and she’s determined to continue putting out films under her Type A banner. “I’ve been on sets for 15 years now [and] just being a part of the filmmaking process you absorb so much that you don’t even realize you are looking at. Whether it is lighting, or shot composition, or casting, you realize how important every element is,” offered Witherspoon.

Penelope tells the story of a young girl from a wealthy family who’s cursed with a pig’s nose. Only when someone of her own class and status accepts her for who she is will she be free of the horrible curse. Christina Ricci plays the part of Penelope, although at one point in the process Witherspoon considered playing the title role herself. “I thought about it, but I got busy with other commitments and the movie ad to go forward. We decided to cast it, but I always knew I wanted to be in it in some capacity. It was kind of fun for me to get to play a smaller character and get to be a broad,” laughed Witherspoon.

February 15, 2008   •  Category: "Four Christmases", "Penelope", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on MoviesOnline Interview

MoviesOnline sat down recently with Reese Witherspoon at the Los Angeles press day for her new movie, Penelope, a modern day romantic tale about a girl coming to terms with who she is. Witherspoon produces and stars in the film which is directed by Mark Palansky from a script by Leslie Caveny. She also talks about Four Christmases, Children’s Defense Fund (in which she says she is going to New Orleans again next month), the Oscars, and so much more. Be sure to check it out!

Penelope Wilhern (Christina Ricci, Sleepy Hollow), born to wealthy socialites (Catherine O’Hara, Home Alone, and Robert E. Grant, Gosford Park), is afflicted by the Wilhern spell that can only be broken when she finds love. Hidden away in her family’s estate, the lonely girl meets a string of suitors in her parent’s futile attempt to break the curse. Each eligible bachelor is enamored with Penelope and her sizable dowry … until her curse is revealed.

February 9, 2008   •  Category: "Rendition", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on Deep Dark Secrets

Reese Witherspoon has a bone to pick — the Oscar-winner is sick of being known as Hollywood’s most obsessively organised actor.

The 31-year-old says she often regrets giving her film company the name Type A Productions — a tongue-in-cheek choice the self-confessed perfectionist made many moons ago.

“People immediately assume that I have a very controlling personality,” Witherspoon says with a sigh.

“It’s up for interpretation that term — Type A — and to me it was just about getting things done and being diligent about them happening, which didn’t seem very negative, but sometimes people think of it as a very uptight personality trait.

“I’m just much more easygoing than that — I go with the flow.”

October 21, 2007   •  Category: "Rendition", Articles & Interviews, Gallery Updates, Public Appearances1 Comment

Reese is currently in Rome, Italy to promote Rendition alongside director Gavin Hood and co-star Jake Gyllenhaal. They attended the press conference just a few moments ago and she looks super cute! I’ve added the first images for your viewing pleasure. Read on for a reportage on what Reese, Jake and Gavin had to say about the film.

Hailing from a country where an apartheid-era state death squad operated under the name Civil Co-operation Bureau, South African film maker Gavin Hood strips away at another sinister euphemism in his latest movie Rendition.

Speaking at a news conference at the Rome Film Festival where the film screened Sunday, Hood said: “Extraordinary renditions, enhanced interrogation – these are just fancy words. We wanted to put a human face to these abstract ideas.”

October 19, 2007   •  Category: "Rendition", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on Witherspoon Takes Dramatic Step in Rendition

Actress’s all-American appeal helps film get message across, director says

Before her latest film, if anyone had asked Reese Witherspoon what the term “extraordinary rendition” meant, she might have answered with a blank stare.

The words could be bureaucratese for something as innocuous as a tax deduction. But as Witherspoon’s Rendition spells out darkly and melodramatically, the term actually stands for a U.S. government practice of transferring terrorism suspects to other countries, where their interrogations could subject them to abuse and torture.

“I don’t think I realized what the term was called,” Witherspoon told The Associated Press at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, where Rendition played in advance of its theatrical release Friday. “The term is not really in the popular vernacular.

“It sounds like public-policy rigmarole. It doesn’t sound like anything that you would connect with the torture and detainment of innocent people.”

October 19, 2007   •  Category: "Rendition", Articles & InterviewsComments Off on 60 Seconds: Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon made her first film, The Man In The Moon, aged 14. Last year, she won an Oscar for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk The Line and later separated from her husband Ryan Phillippe. Her new film Rendition is about the transfer and harsh interrogation of US non-citizens in countries where they are suspected of terrorism.

Did Meryl Streep’s involvement in this film help attract you to the project?
Of course. I was nervous the day I had to work with her. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do it but she was wonderful. She’s completely intimidating, completely professional and had a thousand ideas – but as soon as you cut, she’s the nicest, warmest, funniest person.

Who else has intimidated you on set?
Matthew Broderick when I did Election. I’d grown up watching his films and always thought he was so funny. He had that wonderful wry comic wit. I was more scared to meet Matthew than anyone I’ve ever worked with. He was an icon and I had a crush on him when I was little. I used to think he was so cute.

Did you tell him?
Of course not! And I certainly never told his wife.

Have you ever felt prejudice in your own life, as you and your husband do in Rendition?
Yes, when I went to Stanford University when I was 19. I’d already done several films and I really felt this prejudice against me because I was an actress. Some of the students thought I’d only got in there because I was an actress but I applied the same way as everyone else under my real name, which is not the same as my acting name.
