I’ve added 52 HQs from the press conference – with many more coming up! This is Reese’s first outing since March so I am super happy to see her out and about and looking so gorgeous! 🙂
According to Female First, Reese has had a classy new designer handbag named after her. Mary Norton was looking for a tag for a new clutch accessory when she saw the elegant actress on the red carpet at an awards show.
The designer says: “It has a clean, classic look. It made me think of Reese, who is a down-to-earth mom and an elegant woman.”
The new leather bag, which features a jewelled clasp, can be bought at Norton’s Los Angeles store for around $1,000.
The annual “Celebrity 100 Power List” by Forbes Magazine has listed Oprah Winfrey as the number one most influential and highest earning person of this year. Reese listed at a very respectable #80 this year. Her web rank being #47, press rank at #62 and her pay at $7 mil.
It’s been a tough year for the Oscar-winning actress. Not only did she endure a very public split with husband Ryan Phillippe, but she backed out of Bunny Lake is Missing just weeks before filming was scheduled to start. Then she fired her agent. This winter, she’ll star in Rendition with Jake Gyllenhaal, her first film since winning her Academy Award last year.
Thunder’s Mouth Press is publishing the first ever biography book on Ms. Witherspoon, titled Reese Witherspoon: The Biography. This unofficial biography has been written by Lauren Brown and will be released on August 28, 2007. Brown has written books on several other celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan and Emma Roberts.

Yahoo! has posted the following update concerning Reese and Ryan’s divorce:
Ryan Phillippe wants joint custody of his children with Reese Witherspoon.
Witherspoon filed for divorce on Nov. 8, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split, and she asked for physical custody of the acting couple’s two children — 7-year-old Ava and 3-year-old Deacon. In the Superior Court divorce petition, Witherspoon, 31, asked for visitation for Phillippe, 32, and “exclusive use of the family residence.”
In a response filed Tuesday, Phillippe also cited irreconcilable differences but asked for joint legal custody and physical custody of the children as well as visitation granted “to both parties, equally allocated.”
A telephone message left Thursday for Witherspoon publicist Nanci Ryder wasn’t immediately returned.
The documents filed with the court in November and this week do not list separate or community property, saying the nature of the assets has yet to be determined. Witherspoon’s petition requested that the court not grant any spousal support to Phillippe. There was no request for support in Phillippe’s petition.
