The DailyMail.co.uk have posted some preview photos and quotes from Reese’s interview with Graham Norton, which will air here in the UK tomorrow night. Reese talks about her recent car accident, and the reason behind her new fringe…
Many Hollywood stars get a fringe for a new look or to give a more youthful appearance.
But Reese Witherspoon admitted she decided to cut her hair after she was left with a scar following a road accident in September.
The Oscar winner ended up with a cut on her forehead and a black eye after she was knocked down by a pensioner’s vehicle while jogging.
The mother-of-two, 35, recalled the accident in Santa Monica during an interview on tomorrow nights’ Graham Norton Show.
Assuring Norton she had totally recovered following the ‘particularly un-showbizzy’ incident, she said: ‘I was jogging and I got hit by a car, it’s not funny at all.
‘They said I am very hard headed because I landed right on my head and I have a scar, hence my new hairdo.
‘I don’t remember much about it but miraculously and thank God I am fine.’
Witherspoon refused to press charges against the 85-year-old driver, who was cited by police for failing to stop for a pedestrian.
However, the actress joked the pensioner was now using a bus instead.
She added: ‘She was 85 so they took away her licence and gave her a

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon Calls Taylor Swift ‘Profound’
At the 2011 MTV Movie Awards when Reese Witherspoon took the stage to accept her Generation Award, she used the moment to stand up for every young woman out there.
During her headline-making speech, she proudly told the girls watching the show that “I know it’s cool to be bad. I get it … but it’s also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show.” Now, many months later, Witherspoon sat down with MTV News on Tuesday (January 31) for “MTV First: This Means War.” And, during the lengthy chat, she opened up about her speech.
“Well, I have a 12-year-old daughter, and I take it all very seriously. I think there’s not a lot of positive images out there for young women, honestly,” she explained. “I don’t know, I just feel like shining the light on the good was an incredible move on MTV’s part and that you don’t have to sell yourself short and objectify yourself in order to be popular or liked or loved. And there’s many different ways to the watering hole and you can maintain you self-respect and still accomplish things.
“I don’t watch certain reality shows but there’s ones where people are doing cool, interesting things, like ‘Project Runway.’ But I’m not into women hating on other women or hitting each other or beating the crap out of each other to make money for a bunch of other people,” she continued. “I think that’s not what I want my kids to see.”
That feminist stance has made her the go-to role model for a new generation of stars, including Taylor Swift, who cites her as one of her idols. “I think it’s an accumulation of life experiences and hopefully you handle yourself with grace and dignity and life and that’s all you can hope for and hope to pass on to people,” she said of her own role-model status.
“And I think [Swift is] just an exemplary young lady,” she added. “It’s kind of interesting to see what a profound songwriter she is. I don’t even think anyone has realized, the long term is going to be the bigger revelation. It’s incredible how quickly she writes songs. We’ve hung out a couple of times; we live near each other in Nashville.”

Comments Off on Katherine Heigl on romantic comedies and Reese
Katherine Heigl mentioned Reese in a recent interview, saying that she loves watching Reese’s movies:
AP: Since leaving the show, you’ve starred in several romantic comedies. Are you worried about being typecast?
Heigl: They tend to be the movies I watch when I’m home and hanging out and want to relax. I want to watch Kate Hudson, I want to watch Reese Witherspoon, I want to watch all those great movies that make you feel good. So I loved being a part of them and I didn’t mind being typecast, but any time you start to wander outside the box a little bit people start to get confused. … This one is an interesting one because it wasn’t a conscious decision not to do romantic comedy. … The book explores so many different themes that in order to honor it properly and do right by it we couldn’t just turn it into a romantic comedy.

2011 was a pretty special year for our Reese, as she walked down the aisle with Jim Toth in March. Professionally, she spent several weeks on a massive worldwide promotional tour for Water For Elephants, then began filming new movie Mud in Arkansas and doing re-shoots for This Means War. Glamour Reese Witherspoon site-wise, we underwent a make-over with a new tribute layout to Legally Blonde to celebrate the iconic movie’s 10 year anniversary. Glamour Reese Witherspoon also reached 10 years online … a fact that will be celebrated a bit late but soon, due to my poor memory and busy offline life! Thank you for visiting and supporting GRW in 2011 – we hope you enjoyed your visit this year, but we promise you more of the same and better in 2012, all in honour of the loveable Reese and her loyal fans!

Comments Off on Taylor Swift, Abigail Breslin and Jane Fonda love Reese!
A few celebrities in the press promoting new works have mentioned Reese as one of their favourites recently!
In the Dec. 10 issue of Billboard magazine, where Swift covers the magazine as it’s Woman of the Year, she says, “I have a lot of role models. Faith Hill is a big role model. Reese Witherspoon is a role model of mine – she’s not in music, but I love everything she stands for. Shawn Colvin is a huge role model for me. Her writing has been consistently great and thoughtful…” (huffingtonpost.com)
In exchange for the honor, we asked the star to tell us which Hollywood ladies she admires. “I really like Reese Witherspoon. Anne Hathaway, I really like,” she said. “I love all their work.” (mtv.com)
THR: Whom do you most admire in Hollywood?
Fonda: Interestingly enough, one of the women I’ve always admired is Sherry Lansing. I got to know her when I was at Columbia Pictures working on a film about nuclear energy that Michael Douglas produced, The China Syndrome. Her grace on the job, her kindness, the generosity of her spirit — they all really, really struck me, which is one of the reasons that I’m so excited about getting this award. I also very much admire Helen Mirren, Vanessa Redgrave and Meryl Streep, who did her first movie, Julia, with me. I’m probably one of the very first people who ever saw her onscreen. I just am in total awe of her! She’s beyond anything one could ever imagine an actor to be. There’s so much talent out there — female talent of all ages, and I just love watching them all work. Whether it’s Reese Witherspoon or one of my favorites, Annette Bening. (hollywoodreporter.com)
Back to the missing October/November events, and today I have added over 120 photos from the Elle Women In Hollywood Tribute that Reese attended a few weeks ago. She was there to present her friend and Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston with one of the Elle awards on the night. Reese looked smart in a Bocanegra trouser suit with a Maje camisole and Christian Louboutin shoes, and accessorised with a Lambertson Truex clutch and Irene Neuwirth earrings that added a splash of colour to her outfit. During the event, Reese was snapped greeting Jennifer backstage, and chatting with Jennifer’s boyfriend, Justin Theroux, their friend Chelsea Handler, and Camila Alves.
Photos are in our Gallery now, and further down this post you will find videos and articles from the event.
