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!
If anyone was able to record either pieces of footage and would consider donating it to Glamour Reese Witherspoon, please send us an e-mail.
