Again, apologies for the lack in updates. Things have been very busy in my end and now that Reese is done promoting Penelope in the US, things are getting more quiet again. To make up for it, I come bearing amazing gifts, powered by Mariana! Believe it or not, Penelope is already available on DVD in Brazil so she has created 200 caps of Reese’s little role for us and scanned the covers. The caps should not be spoilery even if you have not seen the film since her role really is so small. In addition, I’ve added one more HQ still from the movie as well as capped a Simply Entertainment Penelope special.
By the way, Penelope will be released on DVD in the UK on June 9, 2008. Pre-order now at Amazon!
The extended DVD edition of Walk the Line is releasing today, and you can pick up your own copy at your local store or via Amazon.com. The DVD is packed with some new features and scenes, here is an article about the disc. Be sure to check it out and witness Reese Witherspoon’s award winning performance in a new light (or for the first time)!
We hope to have a copy of this soon and have caps and clips as soon as possible.
Reese Witherspoon turned 32 on March 22nd. On behalf of all of her fans, Glamour Reese Witherspoon extends it’s warmest wishes to Reese and hope she had a fantastic birthday amongst her loved ones!
US direct-sales company Avon is teaming up with global fashion house Emanuel Ungaro to launch two new signature fragrances, one for women and one for men. U by Ungaro for Her and U by Ungaro for Him are slated to launch globally starting this August, initially in the US. The new scents will appear in Avon’s brochure, which more than five million Avon representatives distribute throughout the world. The brand’s ambassador, American actress Reese Witherspoon, will feature in global print and television ads for the two fragrances.
Both were created by noses at International Flowers and Fragrances (IFF). The women’s juice is a fresh, woody floral featuring top notes of bergamot blossom, wet freesia and pepper blossom, among others, with a base note that blends iris, sandalwood and musk. The men’s scent is a woody aromatic watery blend that combines top notes of green mandarin leaf, ruby red grapefruit and pomegranate with middle notes of cardamom, cedarleaf and immortal flower. The base note is composed of vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, tonka bean and Peru balsam.
Avon teamed with French fashion heavyweight Christian Lacroix for the creation of a signature fragrance line last spring, resulting in what the beauty brand says was its most successful launch to date. Selective fragrances for the Ungaro brand are manufactured by Italian company Ferragamo Parfums.

Reese Witherspoon will voice Susan Murphy aka Ginormica in the upcoming Monsters vs. Aliens movie. Monsters vs. Aliens is directed by Rob Letterman (who directed Shark Tale) and Conrad Vernon (who directed Shrek 2), two very experienced DreamWorks team members. The film hits theaters on March 27, 2009.
Monsters vs. Aliens is a throwback to those B-movie glory days of the ’50s when Martians invaded our backyards and rubber monsters stalked the Earth.
But the DreamsWorks sci-fi spoof, landing March 27, 2009, also transforms a once-tacky Ike-era gimmick into an eye-popping 21st-century experience as the first computer-animated feature to be shot in 3-D.
Studios such as Disney have dimensionalized CGI films, but only after a non-3-D version was made.
DreamWorks, which will preview Monsters for ShoWest exhibitors in Las Vegas today, is commit- ted to doing all its animated releases directly in 3-D from now on. “This isn’t our father’s 3-D,” says the studio’s animation chief, Jeffrey Katzenberg. Though it still relies on funny glasses, “the digital projection puts a perfect image on the screen. There is no ghosting, no eye strain or nausea.”Continue reading this entry »

In Africa, funds were dedicated to organizations that support efforts to battle poverty through various health and education programs, including delivering medical supplies and providing clean water.
