Bad news – Penelope has been delayed again. The film was originally supposed to be released this April, then the studio pushed it back to August 17, which now has been pulled to an unknown release date. No word on when the new release is, but hopefully we’ll hear something soon! I know we’ve been itching to see this film for such a long time already.
In the September issue of Glamour magazine, Reese along with a bevy of beauties including Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and Julia Stiles, are photographed for the ‘Superstars Beauty Secrets’ piece.

You can view the tips to get Reese’s gorgeous natural glow on the official site. The magazine is on stands now and we hope to get a full scan of this soon.
One thing Molly R. Stern adores about Reese Witherspoon: “She’s not the neurotic, ‘Oh, I have a broken capillary!’ girl – she’s comfortable with herself and isn’t putting on makeup to look like somebody else,” says the CoverGirl celeb makeup artist. That realness was apparent the night Witherspoon, 31, won her Oscar. “Former winners kept coming up to congratulate her, and she’d get excited like a 13-year-old – she’s not jaded.” Reese, currently starring with Christina Ricci in the dramedy Penelope, bonded with Stern on a shoot 11 years ago. “Someone had zipped a large portion of my hip skin into a pair of leather pants,” says Witherspoon. “I didn’t even know Molly, and she immediately jumped to my rescue, started telling jokes, wiped my tears, rubbed my hands and made me look flawless.” Today they’re full-on friends. “Whenever my kids are sick, Reese is the first person I call, because she’s had hers longer, is a total know-it-all and likes to help people,” says Stern. Another perk: “She gives me lots of shoes; we wear the same size!”
On the same day Reese Witherspoon was announced as the very first Avon Global Ambassador, there was a walk for Breast Cancer at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and Reese attended having changed into a lovely black dress. We have only located three photos, but never the less she’s beautiful as always. View them here.
I’ve also added another batch of pictures from Reese’s most recent appearance – we now have nearly 200 HQs from the event! View all new additions here. Here’s some really beautiful shots there for your viewing pleasure!
As reported yesterday, the trailer for Rendition was released today and can now be downloaded in high definition over at MovieFone! Be sure to check it out; it looks really, really good and Reese’s scenes are very powerful. I truly can’t wait to see her performance!
“I’m just incredibly inspired by these representatives and I feel really proud to be joining their ranks. I can’t wait to get started on my relationship with Avon and to become an Avon lady.”
Reuters has published a new article on Reese Witherspoon’s Avon involvement, which gives us a bit more insight on her role. I also updated the gallery with 70+ additional pictures from the press conference. 🙂
Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon heeded Avon’s call on Wednesday to become the giant direct-sale cosmetics company’s first ever “Global Ambassador.”
Her duties include acting as a spokeswoman for Avon’s cosmetics and its army of sales representatives whose slogan is “Avon Calling”. She will also be the honorary chairwoman of the Avon Foundation that focuses on such issues as breast cancer and domestic abuse.
“As a woman and a mother I care deeply about the well being of other women and children throughout the world and through the years, I have always looked for opportunities to make a difference,” said Witherspoon.
In a brief interview with Reuters after her news conference, she said she got involved because Avon has a real interest in helping women across the world. “I tried to do the best with balancing work and family. My children are the biggest priority in my life,” said the actress.
Witherspoon, who won the 2005 Oscar for best actress for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line, signed a multi-year agreement, but her compensation was not disclosed.
In addition to her other duties, Witherspoon will also be involved in product development initiatives, and appear globally in Avon advertising, web sites and in the company’s brochures.
While watching Entertainment Tonight this evening they showed a brief clip of Reese at the Avon press conference and also a brief preview of the trailer for Reese’s upcoming thriller, Rendition. The full trailer will premiere tomorrow on ET, and most likely it will make it’s debut online as well. I’m speechless over what I saw because this will most certainly be a Reese Witherspoon performance we cannot miss!
