Is Woody Allen looking for a new muse? The Oscar-winning director, whose last few flicks have featured Scarlett Johansson, is trying to court another Hollywood heavyweight and fellow Oscar winner for his films – Reese Witherspoon.
“Woody Allen is dying to work with Reese Witherspoon on a comedy or on a drama,” a source tells OK!. “He’s a huge fan of her work. He would cast her in a heartbeat.”
Sounds like an open invitation, Reese.
Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon are neighbors and drinking buddies? Who knew?
“I always wanted to be a European movie star, wear giant sunglasses, elaborate neck scarves, smoke hand-rolled cigarettes, and have savoir faire and gravitas,” Reese admitted onstage at the BAFTA/LA Cunard Britannia Awards last night.
Obviously, the perky all-American actress couldn’t become one. So she became friends with one.
“Imagine my good fortune when Kate Winslet moved into my neighborhood, rang my door bell and said, (insert British accent here) “Dahling, Sam is off shooting, and I believe our children are the same age. Could they possibly have a play date and oh, by the way, it’s almost 9 o’clock and I’ve had nothing to do drink, do you have any wine?”
As earlier reported, Ms. Witherspoon attended the 16th Annual BAFTA/LA Cunard Britannia Awards yesterday in Los Angeles. There she presented an award to good friend Kate Winslet. Reese did not appear on the red carpet as she went to another event earlier the day – Children’s Defense Fund’s 17th Annual Beat the Odds Awards, which Reese attends annually. For more information on the cause, please click here. The gallery has been updated with images from both events.
By the way, the gallery registrations are currently closed. This is because we are opening the new gallery in the next few weeks. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Reese Witherspoon is desperate to work with Hollywood actress Kate Winslet — because they have so much in common. The Oscar-winning actress insists she’d love to appear alongside the Titanic star on the big screen, because they both successfully juggle their careers with motherhood. Winslet has two kids, Mia, 7; and Joe, 3; while Witherspoon is mum to Ava, 8; and Deacon, 4. And Witherspoon believes the pair are so alike, they’re almost “the same person”.
She says, “I had a chance recently to hang out with Kate Winslet and (Winslet’s husband) Sam Mendes. We just really get along. We’re from different countries but we’re sort of the same person. We’re the same age, we have children who are the same age. I just love Kate. I think she is just so great and I’d really love to work with her.”

Pictured: Reese with Jake Gyllenhaal and Marc Jacobs at Kate Hudson’s Halloween party last Saturday.
I’ve added three videos featuring Reese at the Rome Film Festival. The Sky Life video is especially a must see. There’s a brief interview, where Reese talks about Rendition and her stunning Nina Ricci dress.
Okay, we would never normally post and ask for donations but this is an emergency. Mycah, fellow Glamour Reese Witherspoon webmaster, is in a horrible situation right now. Her house burned down earlier this week and she really needs our help. If you enjoy her work on this site and can spare anything at all, please consider donating. She is okay but her family lost their home and all possessions and they have no place to stay. You can read about the incident here. If you can help at all, Mycah’s PayPal address is email@example.com. I’m sure that any donations will be more than appreciated.
