Reese Witherspoon on the Best Party She’s Ever Hosted and More!

Our Editor-at-Large, Darcy Miller, caught up with the actress and Draper James-founder to talk all-things parties, weddings, hosting, and gifts.

Working in this industry—and as a frequent wedding guest—I’m always on the lookout for thoughtful gift ideas. That’s why I was thrilled to discover Draper James, Reese Witherspoon’s shop in Nashville. Named for her grandparents (Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon), it’s a charming southern home-and-clothing boutique. On a recent visit, I got a peek at the new Wedding Collection, full of gifts that you can easily make personal with a handwritten note or even a toast for the newlyweds. I also asked if Reese, who’s the ultimate host and gift-giver, would share some tips. Whether throwing a shower or attending a wedding, she knows just what to do, what to wear, and what to bring. Here’s some of her advice.

What was the best party you ever threw, and what made it great?

“Well, I throw a lot of parties, and a lot are in the backyard with barbecue or a tray of enchiladas. But my favorite ever was my 40th birthday—it was New Orleans-themed, with mint-julep cups and a second-line band. I got to share my southern upbringing with all my favorite people.”

How about the most memorable bridal shower you ever attended?

“It was at a barn in Bolinas, California. We watched the sun go down, drinking Napa Valley rosé. We sat at long farm tables with fresh farm-to-table food.”

Favorite shower theme?

“I love a garden theme. Hosting outside takes the pressure off having your house look perfect—you can let Mother Nature do all the work!”

How about a go-to cocktail?

“I learned to make southern sweet tea from my grandmother—she always served it when anyone dropped by. I’ve added my own twist to her recipe: I mix it with vodka for an easy cocktail, or add rum to make an iced-tea mojito.”

If you had to pick one detail for a successful party, what would it be?

“Great drinks and good music are all you need. Even if the food is bad! If the music is good and the drinks are flowing, everyone is happy.”

Tell me about the Wedding Collection and why you love it.

“These gifts are perfect for engagement parties and bridal showers. There’s a lot to celebrate when it comes to weddings, so we created gifts to honor all the special moments and people involved. ”

Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine Sets Two Novels For Screen

Reese Witherspoon’s new company Hello Sunshine has set up to produce the Gail Honeyman novel Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and the Catherine Steadman novel Something in the Water.

The latter will be adapted by Julia Cox and was acquired by Fox 2000 for Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter to produce with Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey and Jaclyn Huntling. Witherspoon will develop that one solely to produce, but Eleanor Oliphant will be a potential star vehicle for her.

Witherspoon, who produced the book-generated films Gone Girl and Wild and the HBO series Big Little Lies before splitting with Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea, formed Hello Sunshine and set Neustader to be Head of Film and TV, with the goal of continuing to find female-centric literary properties for film and TV projects.

Both of these books are by female first-time authors. Eleanor Oliphant is the story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine who goes from living a lonely life to realizing the only way to survive is to open your heart. The novel was just published by the Penguin Random House imprint Pamela Dorman Books. Something in the Water is about a woman whose life is on the upswing. She’s about to get married and is establishing a successful career as a documentary filmmaker. Then she’s thrown a curveball that challenges her ethics and priorities and her life begins to slip from her grasp. APA sold the book and reps the scribe and author. The novel will be published by Bantam in the U.S. and Simon & Schuster in the UK after making a splash at the London Book Fair.

Eleanor Oliphant author Honeyman is repped by The Artists Partnership, Emily Hayward Whitlock and Madeleine Milburn Ltd.

May 12, 2017   •  Category: "Home Again", Gallery Updates, Video UpdatesComments Off on First “Home Again” teaser trailer

The first teaser trailer for Reese’s upcoming romantic comedy Home Again has just been released! The films hits US cinemas on September 8th.



HOME AGAIN stars Reese Witherspoon (“Big Little Lies,” Wild, Walk The Line, Sweet Home Alabama) as Alice Kinney in a modern romantic comedy. Recently separated from her husband, (Michael Sheen), Alice decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters. During a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets three aspiring filmmakers who happen to be in need of a place to live. Alice agrees to let the guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways. Alice’s unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand. HOME AGAIN is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create. And one very big life lesson: Starting over is not for beginners.

A few days ago Reese attended the unveiling of Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell’s stars on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, which she was very excited about! During her speech, which you can watch below, Reese said that Goldie is her idol, and talked about how Goldie helped pave the way for women creating their own films in Hollywood and inspired Reese to become a producer. Reese was joined at the event by Goldie & Kurt’s daughter – and Reese’s friend – Kate Hudson, and director Quentin Tarantino. Reese looked chic in a purple dress by Roland Mouret, with Louboutin shoes and Jennifer Meyer jewellery. We have photos in our Gallery for you, and videos from the event further down this post:
