Last month, it was revealed Hollywood superstar Reese Witherspoon would be coming to Australia for her first ever speaking tour.
And Jacqueline Nagle, the Queensland mother who persuaded Reese to travel Down Under, told Sunrise on Wednesday why the Legally Blonde star was chosen to headline her $2,000-a-head event for women in leadership, titled the Simpatico Conference Series.
‘What I wanted was somebody who brings everything to the table,’ Jacqueline said of the 40-year-old actress-turned-producer, who will serve as keynote speaker for the events scheduled for Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in July.
Sunrise co-host Samantha Armytage asked how she expected an Oscar-winning star like Reese to ‘be inspirational to the average, everyday working Aussie woman.’
Jacqueline, who’s career has spanned several industries, replied: ‘If I just wanted a Hollywood superstar, there are hundreds we could have chosen.
‘But what I wanted was someone who brings everything to the table. So it’s about being an Oscar- winning actress, absolutely.
‘But it’s also about the fact she has her own production company, she has her own retail business, she is a working mum.Continue reading this entry »
Reese Witherspoon Gushes About Her Children: My Daughter Ava Is ‘So Much Cooler Than I Am’
An adoring mom! Reese Witherspoon opened up about her three children at the Tiffany & Co. 2016 Blue Book Event in New York City on Friday, April 15.
The Wild star, 40, couldn’t help but gush to Us Weekly about her eldest daughter, Ava Phillippe, 16, who recently dyed her hair pastel-pink before attending the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this weekend.
“She’s so much cooler than I am!” Witherspoon told Us, laughing. “She’s very cutting-edge, and she knows a lot about fashion, and she has her own sense of style, which is amazing.”
The Oscar winner also noted that she often finds herself going to her mini-me daughter for fashion advice.
“We try to kind of confer about new styles,” she explained. “She tells me whether or not I can wear things.”
Witherspoon, who is also the mom of sons Deacon, 12, and Tennessee, 3, quipped that she feels mommy guilt “every day, all day long,” adding, “Every time I travel, it’s very hard.”
The actress even raved about her husband, Jim Toth, who she celebrated her fifth anniversary with last month.
“I think what’s great about he and I is we’re both the heads of our family and we share everything — the responsibilities and the highs and the lows together,” she told Us. “It’s really beautiful to be on that journey with someone that you truly love and who truly respects you.”
Toth, 45, and Witherspoon are currently teaching their “sweet” son, Tennessee, how to read — and they’ve had some help from the toddler’s older siblings!
“He’s learning to read,” the Walk the Line star explained. “And that’s a really great thing, to have my older kids teaching my younger children how to read. Incredible memories that we’re making.”
Reese attended Tiffany & Co’s Blue Book Gala tonight in NYC – here’s a cute picture her friend Naomi Watts posted of the two at the event, and you can see more on Reese’s Twitter & Instagram pages. We’ll have pics up here in our Gallery for you asap…
Reese Witherspoon Is Excited for the ‘Cruel Intentions’ TV Show: ‘I’ll Be Watching!’
Daddy’s little angel, a paradigm of chastity and virtue, is ready for some naughty TV.
Reese Witherspoon, who iconically played Annette Hargrove in the classic 1999 film, Cruel Intentions, stepped out at Stand Up To Cancer’s Standing Room Only event in New York on Saturday and told ET she’s looking forward to seeing the racy drama’s television spin-off.
“I’m excited!” Witherspoon exclaimed. “Sarah’s a good friend of mine, and our kids are in preschool together, so I’m really excited. It’s a lot of the original people involved, so yeah, I’ll be watching.”
Sarah Michelle Gellar will once again portray Kathryn Merteuil in the NBC revival, which is set 15 years after the events of the film. The show focuses on Bash Casey (American Crime’s Taylor John Smith), the son of Kathryn’s stepbrother, Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe in the movie), and Annette, as he enters the world of sex, power and corruption.
Perhaps Witherspoon will get so excited that she’ll agree to a cameo in the show?
Witherspoon also opened up about what the event — which honored SU2C co-founder Katie Couric with donors American Airlines, Merck and MasterCard — means to her, and how her husband, Jim Toth, continues to inspire her to give back.
“Obviously cancer affects so many people in my life and in everyone’s lives. I mean, literally, I don’t know a person whose life hasn’t been affected by this devastating disease,” she said. “My husband lost his father seven years ago to lung cancer, and it has been a mission of his to raise as much money as possible for cancer research.”

Reese Witherspoon Showed Us How to Throw a Classic Southern Party
Another perfect L.A. day made for an outdoor get-together—warm, sunshiny, breeze rippling the backyard pool. But there’s something distinctly un–Bel Air in the air. The smell, for one thing, which is almost like…homemade biscuits. Could there be carbs on the premises? And coming from the speakers—is that Toby Keith, lamenting that if women come a dime a dozen, he ain’t got a penny?
On the patio is the smoking gun: a cauldron of hot-popping fat. A deep fryer must be grounds for a citation here in the land of sea vegetables and hemp milk. Either the apocalypse has come or there’s a Southerner in the house.
Fortunately, it’s the latter. In this case, the Southern girl is Reese Witherspoon, born in New Orleans and raised in Nashville. The actress and producer loves to throw a party, and today there’s a good excuse: She’s celebrating the first anniversary of Draper James, her line of fashion, housewares, and other little touches essential for gracious living. It’s a uniquely Southern combination of tradition (a monogrammed mint julep cup modeled after vintage barware) and humor (a tote bag that says TOTES Y’ALL, which is so popular, it’s sold out twice). “I wanted to make the kinds of things I grew up with and things that would make people happy,” she says. “Southerners don’t take themselves so seriously, and at Draper James, we didn’t want to take ourselves too seriously, either.”Continue reading this entry »

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth’s Ideal Date Night Involves Sleeping In the Next Day
Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth ended their Saturday night by dancing onstage to Jamie Foxx’s hit “Blame It (On the Alcohol)” – a charity event-turned-date-night for the couple.
The pair, who served as co-chairs for Stand Up to Cancer N.Y.C.’s Standing Room Only event at Cipriani Wall Street, told PEOPLE that the party was “sort of” a romantic outing.
Then how would the actress define a real, quality date night? “Going to a nice dinner and not having to wake up at the crack of dawn with the kids,” she said. “That’s nice.”
Witherspoon, who celebrated her fifth anniversary with Hollywood agent Toth in March, and a week earlier, her starry 40th birthday party, indicated that they usually include their children in their festivities.
“They were at my party, it was really fun,” she said. “Except for the little one [son Tennessee, age 3]. We had cake with [him] the next day.”Continue reading this entry »
Southern Living magazine have named Reese one of their Innovators Changing the South, saying:
Of course we swooned when we heard that one of our favorite actresses, one who hails from Nashville, was opening a storefront and online store. But when we saw the gorgeous pieces Draper James offers, from charming accessories and dresses to classic choices for Southern decorating, we really fell in love. Even better? Draper James prioritizes made-in-America, made-in-the-South products, and the company is continually working to make the offerings even more authentically Southern.
