Reese Witherspoon finds herself having to pick between two suitors — Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd — in her new romantic comedy, ‘How Do You Know,’ in theaters December 17. Who will she choose?
“You’re looking at people that are at points in their lives that could go any way,” says Reese.
The laughable love triangle from Oscar winner James L. Brooks finds Reese as Lisa, a woman facing a difficult transition in her life who jumps into a relationship with the self-centered Matty (played by Owen). Then she meets George (played by Paul), a man who’s facing financial ruin and a federal investigation for shady deals made by his father’s company.
“Lisa and Matty have been dating for a few weeks,” explains Reese. “George and Lisa meet and it turns out to be the most horrible date ever.”
“What would happen if two people were to meet on the worst day of their lives?” asks Paul.
As the relationships progress, the three characters get more tangled as they try to navigate their own choices.
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway laughed with actress Reese Witherspoon at the Avon Foundation for Women event in NYC, chatting about her new movie with Jack Nicholson (“How Do You Know”), her shoes (Louboutin) and doing a mini-triathlon (with her 11-year-old daughter, Ava).
“It was hard,” Witherspoon said of the triathlon. “My results showed my lack of training. Ava pointed out that a 5th-grader passed me.”
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.
