Could Estée Lauder be on the verge of signing its second Oscar winner? According to a industry sources, word has it that the beauty giant is in talks with Reese Witherspoon about becoming the newest face of Estée Lauder, joining an illustrious roster that already includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Liya Kebede, Carolyn Murphy, Elizabeth Hurley, and, most recently, Hilary Rhoda.
The 31-year-old actress and mother of two, who won an Academy Award in 2006 for her role in Walk the Line, is rumored to be in the elementary stages of discussion, with the source adding that there is no concrete contract just yet. Witherspoon, just one of a pool of coveted actresses that have yet to pledge their allegiances to any one beauty brand—including Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, and Keira Knightley—recently agreed to be dressed by Nina Ricci’s Olivier Theyskens for all formal public outings, and reportedly has a deal to wear Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry on the red carpet exclusively.
An Estée Lauder spokesperson declined comment. Witherspoon’s publicist was unavailable for comment.

Box Office Mojo has put up a new release date of October 12, 2007 for Reese Witherspoon’s next movie, Rendition. Previous release date was November 30, 2007.
Thanks to walktheline for the heads up.
Video: Presented in 16×9 “widecreen.” (Seriously, it says “widecreen” on the box.) As for the transfer, it’s still the same, non-remastered version of the film, and victim to all the grain and imperfections.
Audio: Dobly Digital 5.1 surround, THX enhanced. This is one part of the DVD that comes through.
Have you been waiting for Freeway to get the Special Edition treatment? Congratulations, you get to keep waiting! This is nothing more than a cheap re-release of the exact same DVD from 1997. C’mon, Lionsgate; you could’ve at least sprung for a real DVD menu.
Director’s Narration: Wow. This DVD is so old, they weren’t even calling ‘em commentaries yet! Writer/director Matthew Bright has plenty to say about the movie (dubbing it an “artsploitation film”), as well as some interesting tidbits on being plucked from obscurity to make his debut feature, but overall a pretty boring commentary.
I have added a couple of new movie stills and replaced some with high quality and color versions. You may also notice that the comments are temporarily offline, due to spam messages. We will switch news scripts soon so they will be available again.
Last but not least, thanks to the wonderful Liv Tyler Fan for making us their site of the month for April!
Penelope the novel was recently released. It is adapted from the screenplay of the movie and none other than Ms. Witherspoon wrote the introduction for it and thanks to Elizabeth, we have it for your reading pleasure! Read on for Reese’s touching introduction and check out Amazon for your own copy! 🙂
I loved reading fairy tales as a child—or better yet, having them read to me—and now my daughter loves them too! The adventures of those beleaguered princesses, so often the youngest, most beautiful, and least appreciated, were magical. Fairy tales tell us who we are and how to live. That’s why they are so powerful. It’s not often that a brand-new tale appears in the world. So imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered . . . Penelope!
Sprung from the brilliantly original brain of Leslie Caveny, Penelope appeared on my desk one fine spring day. I loved the story from the moment I read it, and Penelope came to life in my imagination long before she stepped on-screen.

I have updated the video archive with eight new videos of Reese, two from the 2007 Oscar Fashion Police, thanks to Jess, and six from Reese’s guest spot on two episodes of Friends, thanks to Eric. Happy downloading 🙂
Our favorite leading lady, Ms. Reese Witherspoon, turns 31-years old today!
We launched the Birthday Project a week ago and despite the short notice, we managed to gather 60 contributions from fans from 26 different countries! Quite impressive, if I may so say myself. I want to thank everyone who sent in their lovely entries! We promise to do everything in our power to make sure that Reese herself sees them!
Well, without further ados…
I have bought and scanned the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar for the site. The photos of Reese are divine and she looks so pretty, and the dresses she is in are so lovely. I apologise in advance for the horrible quality, I’m on a new computer and I haven’t worked out everything yet, plus I don’t have my regular software (picture #2 below was the page, the ink apparently bled through), but appreciate them for what they are – Reese! I will re-scan them whenever possible. The article is mostly about her latest fashion hits on the red carpet, with some statements on Nina Ricci’s Oscar Theyskens, those bangs, red lipstick and some really great quotes from Reese. 😉
“The universe constantly reminds you that you’re not in control. You’re not in charge of the whole world.”
Reminder: Today is the last day of our Reese Witherspoon Birthday Project, all pending submissions have been added so if you don’t see yours or haven’t submitted one yet, please do so today! No exceptions will be made, so get them done now. 😉
