Comments Off on President Obama to Paul Rudd: I Loved You in ‘I Love You, Man’
It’s too bad Paul Rudd is married (for multiple reason) because if he had needed a best man in his wedding it sounds like President Barack Obama would be more than happy to step in!
While Paul was filming How Do You Know with Reese Witherspoon in Washington D.C., the co-stars were able to get a private tour of the White House.
As part of Entertainment Weekly’s cover story, Reese recalls what happened while they were on their tour.
“While we were getting a tour, we got a message from the Oval Office that Obama wanted to say hi to us,” she begins the story.
“We went to the Oval Office, and there was Hillary Clinton having a meeting with Joe Biden. It was insane,” she says. “Then Obama came out and he turned to Paul and said, ‘I loved you in I Love You, Man.’ ”
“I grabbed Paul and I was like, ‘Are you freaking out right now?’ ” she remembers. “He’s like, ‘I’m freaking out!’ We were so tongue-tied it was ridiculous.”
“Obama was like, ‘What are you guys doing in town?’ I started talking about the movie and I was like, ‘We’re doing a movie and… uh, I’m playing a character, who, uh…I’m working with Owen, uh…Owen…’ I could not remember Owen’s last name,” Reese explains.
“And Paul goes, ‘Wilson!’ Like it was a party game.”
Reese Witherspoon has revealed her number one turn-off is men correcting her grammar.
The Oscar-winning Tennessee-born actress – who is dating agent Jim Toth – revealed her pet hate at a preview for her new movie James L Brooks’ How Do You Know.
Reese told People: “I had someone correct my grammar on a blind date once, and I knew within the first 10 minutes that the date was over.
“I don’t even remember what I said – I probably said ‘ain’t’.
“Just don’t correct my grammar. I’m from Tennessee. I probably say everything wrong.”
In the film Reese’s character is caught in a love triangle between two men played by Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson.
As well as knowing when she is not in love, Reese claims she now knows when she is.
She told Entertainment Tonight: “I’m old enough to know that I don’t know anything about love or relationships. I just try to go with my instincts and advise other people to do the same.
“My friends are a barometer for my relationships. “I kind of look at them to reflect to me how I seem.”
The 34-year-old mother to daughter Ava, 11, and son Deacon, seven, split from her ex-husband and children’s father Ryan Phillippe in 2007. She dated Jake Gyllenhaal for almost two years until 2009 and began dating Jim in January.

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon: Manners cost nothing
Reese Witherspoon has insisted good manners cost nothing.
The Hollywood actress, who grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, said that her mother Betty made sure she grew up knowing the importance of being courteous.
She told The Sun: “I was always taught that good manners cost nothing – but are worth such a lot. My mother even sent me to etiquette lessons. It was close to the old-fashioned English upbringing, where you learn where to place the knives and forks. I had that bred in to me, even though we lived in Nashville, Tennessee. I was taught to be polite in conversation, smile a lot and treat people with respect.”
She admitted her childhood in the South left her with a need to be a people pleaser. “Whenever I talk about what it means to be a girl from the American South, I always end up talking about guilt. We can’t stand anyone not liking us. I send a lot of thank-you notes and buy plenty of gifts.”

Comments Off on Video of Reese to appear in Democracy Forum
Reese news is slow again, but here’s an interesting little tidbit:
Congressman Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) and Arizona’s Secretary of State Ken Bennett (R) will team up at a “Democracy Forum” on October 30 in Tucson to promote civil discourse on the key national issues of immigration and the economy. Dr. Peter Likins, President Emeritus of the University of Arizona, will emcee the free, public event taking place from 1:30 until 4 p.m. at the Arizona Historical Society/Museum.
At the Forum, Secretary Bennett and Congressman Grijalva, who are from differing political parties, will each present their position on immigration and the economy then the audience will ask questions, discuss the issues and vote on them. The National Student/Parent Mock Election is spearheading the Democracy Forum, which is designed to bring parents, grandparents, children and public officials together in a bipartisan, intergenerational, multi-ethnic forum.

On behalf of my partner in crime Jess and all the loyal Glamour visitors, I want to wish Reese a very happy and wonderful 34th birthday. Feel free to leave your birthday wishes as a comment.
Though not exactly Reese related, Brittany was a costar of hers back in the 1996 film Freeway so I thought it would be relevant to post. Both TMZ and ONTD are reporting that Brittany Murphy died this morning from cardiac arrest. Most people remember her from her performances in films like Clueless, Girl Interrupted, and Riding in Cars With Boys. She was only 32.
The staff of Glamour wants to send our heartfelt condolences to Brittany’s friends and family. Brittany will be missed by her fans.
