Many news sources are reporting on Robert Pattinson having cut his hair (shocking!), and on a recent appearance on the Ellen Show, he confirmed it was for Water For Elephants. He also stated that work on the film starts today – May 20th – in Los Angeles, and photos can be seen at Celebrity-Gossip.net of him on the set today. No sign of Reese yet, but I will keep my eyes out and post the first set photos as soon as I find any! Feel free to post a comment here if you come across any.
‘It’s about a circus in the 1930s based on a book called Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon’. – Robert Pattinson on Water for Elephants
EDIT: I’ve been looking for more details, and come across a video of Reese talking about the project, and a further quote from Robert Pattinson.
“It’s set in the Depression era, when circuses traveled by train and this guy runs away and jumps on a train to be a hobo and by accident, he doesnt realize it’s a circus train. He becomes part of this world because he has no life to go back to and ends up falling in love with the ringmaster’s wife, played by Reese Witherspoon. The ringmaster just happens to be kind of a schizophrenic as well. He’s a most charismatic and terrifying person. He’s Christoph Waltz from Inglourious Basterds. I did a read through yesterday with him. He was sitting right next to me. It was a little terrifying.” – Robert Pattinson
Reese was featured on Entertainment Tonight on March 10th, after the Avon & Vital Voices Breakfast Meeting event. She spoke about the work Avon is doing for anti-violence against women campaigns. Reese also joked that she tells her kids that Michelle Obama’s kids only get dessert at the weekends, and she laughed when asked if she had any political aspirations!
The lovely Brianne has kindly sent us a video of the appearance that aired on TV screens, and I’ve added screencaps of that to the Gallery. You can watch the extended online version below.
In response to the destruction and devastation caused by the earthquake in Haiti, The Advertising Council and the American Red Cross today (Jan 22nd) launched a national television public service advertisement (PSA) featuring Morgan Freeman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tim McGraw, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon.
In the television PSA, the celebrities encourage all Americans to support relief efforts for the Haitian citizens impacted by the earthquake by donating to the American Red Cross. Viewers are directed to visit www.redcross.org, call 1-800-HELP-NOW or text “HAITI” to 9-0-9-9-9 and $10 will be given automatically to the American Red Cross.
Created pro bono by GSD&M Idea City, with the Creative Artists Agency Foundation helping to coordinate the talent, the PSA is available in :30 format. A Spanish-language TV spot, featuring actress Eva Longoria, will also be available to the media next week. Per the Ad Council’s model, the PSAs will air in advertising time that will be donated by the media.
As stated earlier, Reese jetted to London during the Thanksgiving Holiday to do some promos for Four Christmases, even more fabulous interviews have come up and here they are, in addition to a behind the scenes featurette from the film. I will add screencaptures of everything when I’m feeling better, right now I have a sucky flu.
Also according to visitor Elenor, Reese was on The Graham Norton Show Thursday. Online you can see what seems to be the video but it’s for UK residents only. If someone has this video or can obtain it for the other fans please send it in!
As you know Reese has been all over the place, coast-to-coast promoting Four Christmases. I have now rounded up just about all the video interviews, news reports and clips from the promotion I can find/grab for archiving. I have added 19 videos to our upcoming new video archive alone, that site is offline but they can be streamed in an embeded format after the cut (click here) and their screencaptures are in the gallery.
Interviews & Talk Shows: 11 online interview junkets/premiere footage. My personal favorite is ET Online with all the Christmases gifts. Totally cute! Reese also made a talk show appearance on CW 31 on the 24th (the date of her GMA & Regis appearances, so she looks a little tired at the end). I will be adding the Regis and Jimmy Kimmel caps & videos very soon as well as a few more related things. Don’t worry in case you missed them!
News Segments: 5 reports added. Mostly are Reese being interviewed at the premiere of the film.
Four Christmases Footage: Check out 10 off-site clips, on Yahoo! and a TV spot below.
