Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon Launches the Avon Women’s Empowerment Bracelet to Honor the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day
Avon Empowerment products and programs in more than 50 countries have raised more than $30 million to end violence against women
Even as women and men around the world celebrate the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day on March 8th, violence against women remains a global epidemic. The domestic violence statistics for just one ordinary day in the United States are staggering: on average, three women will be murdered by an intimate partner i, more than 70,000 domestic violence victims will receive services from domestic violence programs and another 10,000 will be turned away for lack of resources, and domestic violence hotlines will receive more than 22,000 calls. Around the world, the statistics are equally horrific: one in three women will be raped, beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime.ii
“Although the problem may seem insurmountable, there are ways for women and men everywhere to help bring an end to violence against women across the globe,” said Reese Witherspoon, Avon Global Ambassador and Honorary Chair of the Avon Foundation for Women. “The Avon Empowerment Bracelet is a simple, but powerful, way to raise funds to reduce violence against women. As a woman and as a mother, I urge you to join me on this very special anniversary of International Women’s Day to end this epidemic by wearing and giving the bracelet to friends and family.”
The new bracelet, part of the Avon Women’s Empowerment product collection, is accessibly priced at just $10.00 each. One hundred percent of net profits ($8.04 for each bracelet sold) will benefit Avon Foundation for Women programs dedicated to ending violence against women. The new bracelet features assorted faux-stone, glass and silvertone beads with an “infinity” charm on a stretch bracelet, representing the unlimited opportunities for women when they live violence-free lives. The Empowerment products are available through Avon Sales Representatives in more than 50 countries by calling 1-800-FOR-AVON or by visiting www.avon.com.
Here is the much publicised new trailer for Water For Elephants! This is the one that premiered on Amazon.com on March 3rd. Below that, is a TV spot for the film that aired the same day on American Idol, although it’s just a teaser for that new trailer.
We also some new stills from the movie, which I will be adding – alongside screencaps from the trailer – to the Gallery in a minute. EDIT: Screencaps and new stills are now in our Gallery!

Comments Off on Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon Talk Their ‘Water for Elephants’ Forbidden Romance
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson share a smooch and more in the upcoming ‘Water for Elephants,’ and the onscreen lovebirds are talking about their forbidden movie romance with ET! They also share a nugget of obscure movie trivia — they were once cast in a film as mother and son!
In ‘Water for Elephants,’ Reese plays the married star performer in a circus who catches the attention of a bachelor animal caretaker, played by ‘Twilight’ star Rob. When ET visited the Los Angeles set during production on the film last summer, Reese rode atop an enormous elephant for a scene involving an elaborate 1930s parade.
Reese gushed about sharing love scenes with Rob, proclaiming, “I am so lucky. He’s so amazing and wonderful and sweet and just the nicest guy too, so you can just add that to the soup. I mean, he’s just so good looking and he’s a really nice person.”
Rob said the pair hadn’t yet shot their love scenes, but shared, “Reese has only got two days [of work] left [on the film]. So … they must expect me to be very professional about it.” He also gave a tidbit about one love scene — he says it ends with his character getting beaten up!
The first batch of photos from last night’s Oscars have now been added to the Gallery! Reese looked stunning I think … I was wondering what kind of look she’d go for this year, and I was so happy to see she’d gone for a full-on sexy and glamorous look. I was a little in awe when I first saw her appear on the red carpet on my TV screen! This may be one of new favourite looks of hers. She’s wearing Armani Privé, with Neil Lane jewellery (love those emerald earrings!). Once inside the ceremony, Reese presented the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, which (deservedly) went to her American Psycho co-star Christian Bale for his role in The Fighter. After presenting him with the award she posed backstage with him in the press room.
Post-ceremony, Miss Reese headed on over to the Vanity Fair After Party, where she was seen chatting to her good friend Michelle Williams, as well as Michelle’s BFF Busy Phillips, and Elizabeth Banks. Her fiance Jim Toth was also with her. It looks like she had a fun time!
So, onto Gallery updates! I’ve added 49 exclusive HQs from the red carpet/show/press room, as well as photos from the Vanity Fair Party, and of Reese rehearsing her presentation the day before. And further down this post is a video of the Best Supporting Actor presentation. This is just the very start of our coverage – check back tomorrow for tons more photos, videos, as well as any tidbits/quotes/articles/etc I may find.
And don’t forget to leave a comment to tell us what you thought of Reese’s look!
