Comments Off on Obama gets celeb support from Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon
President Barack Obama attracted major star power for a mid-week visit to Los Angeles, drawing out A-listers such as Julia Roberts and Reese Witherspoon to a fundraising event in Beverly Hills.
The president arrived at LAX shortly before 5 p.m., whisked off to address the LGBT Leadership Council at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, an event hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
Following a four-song set from “Glee’s” Darren Criss, Obama discussed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell to a crowd that included Cher and son Chaz Bono, “Modern Family” actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and George Takei.
“What makes America exceptional is eventually we get it right, what Dr. King called the arc of the moral universe — it bends toward justice,” Obama told the crowd of 600.
Following his speech, First Lady Michelle Obama’s husband headed off to a much more exclusive fete — a fundraising dinner thrown by “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy at his Beverly Hills home.
Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Jane Lynch and HBO honcho Michael Lombardo awaited him, where he spoke again about LGBT issues and the course of his first term.
Tables near an outdoor fountain accommodated eight to 10 guests, and seats weren’t cheap — the event came with a $40,000-per-couple price tag. President Obama is scheduled to depart after a breakfast meeting on Thursday morning.

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.)

Comments Off on Status update on The Pioneer Woman – new writers attached
The success of the blog turned book turned movie Julie & Julia sent Hollywood on a frenzied search to uncover possible blogs for film adaptations. Back in 2010 Sony had jumped on mommy blogger Ree Drummond’s The Pioneer Woman, optioning it for a possible Reese Witherspoon vehicle. The blog—like the book that would follow The Pioneer Woman: From Black Heels To Tractor Wheels—detailed how Drummond’s kismet meeting with a charming cowboy inspired her to leave behind her city slicker life in favor of a home on the range.
With Witherspoon’s warm yet sharp charisma, this proposed picture seemed a good fit for her. Unfortunately, The Pioneer Woman stalled out in 2011 when executive producer Laura Ziskin died. The unfinished screenplay—penned by Robert Harling of Steel Magnolias fame—was shelved and he moved on to create the ABC dramedy series GCB. Witherspoon remained attached to the property, but the future of The Pioneer Woman movie was uncertain.

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon: Birth is sensual
Reese Witherspoon says giving birth is “very intense”.
The actress is believed to be expecting her third child, but is yet to confirm the pregnancy.
In an interview conducted before she was spotted showing off a visible baby bump, Reese discussed her experiences of labour.
She has two children – 12-year-old Ava and Deacon, eight – with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and admits becoming a mother changed how she looks at herself.
“Giving birth is a very intense, also on a physical level,” she is quoted as saying by Italian magazine Gioia. “But now I am aware of my body, and I feel sensual. When I was young I was unsure about my body. Now it’s different – I have cellulite and stretch marks.”
The 36-year-old star is happily married to Hollywood agent Jim Toth.
They are believed to have told their close friends and family that they are expecting their first child together.
Reese loves being a mom and her children will always come first in her life. The close-knit family enjoy being outdoors and keeping active.
“I am trying to spend as much time as possible with my children,” she explained. “We go to the cinema, we walk and sing. Ava loves running and Deacon loves riding. We have a ranch in Ojai with a lot of different farm animals. We spend a lot of time looking after them.”
When Reese isn’t working or exercising with her family, she loves cooking up a storm in her kitchen. She learned how to prepare her favourite meals from her grandmother.
“I grew up in Tennessee and I love cooking. Food is part of the culture in the South. I am great at preparing traditional dishes like fried chicken or recipes with cabbage,” she added. “I am also good at making grits. I learnt these recipes from my grandma, an amazing cook.”
