Reese and Mindy Kaling were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey as part of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday show on her OWN channel recently. Here are some snippets:
The Gallery has been updated today with HD screencaptures from Reese’s first movie – The Man In The Moon. The quality is gorgeous, and there are lots of beautiful shots of young Reese. This is without a doubt one of my favourite Reese films and performances – she carries the film so naturally and confidently, it’s incredible to think that this was her very first acting role. The film itself is summed up just perfectly by famed movie critic Robert Ebert:
Roger Ebert: When this movie was over, I sat quietly for a moment so that I could feel the arc of its story being completed in my mind. They had done it: They had found a way all the way from the beginning to the end of this material, which is so fraught with peril, and never stepped wrong, not even at the end, when everything could have come tumbling down. “The Man in the Moon” is a wonderful movie, but it is more than that, it is a victory of tone and mood. It is like a poem.
“The Man in the Moon” is like a great short story, one of those masterpieces of language and mood where not one word is wrong, or unnecessary. It flows so smoothly from start to finish that it hardly even seems like an ordinary film. Usually I am aware of the screenwriter putting in obligatory scenes. I can hear the machinery grinding. Not this time. Although, in retrospect, I can see how carefully the plot was put together, how meticulously each event was prepared for, as I watched the film I was only aware of life passing by.
Reese fell into this role after she responded to a casting advert in a local paper – she thought it would be fun to try out as an extra in the film. She didn’t know she got the leading role until she was sent the script and noticed her character was on every page!
Reese Witherspoon: “I came in with such innocence, not seeing this as a debut performance but a wonderful summer job! I was so worried I was gonna get fired! It’s like, I’d better learn my lines and I’d better wake up early and be there early for the car to pick me up. I took it very seriously, but I also had a really good time.”
Enjoy the updated HD screencaptures:

Jennifer Aniston talked about her upcoming TV show with Reese during a recent appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show:
On this episode of “Secret Talent Theatre,” Reese Witherspoon teaches you Southern slang words and phrases. Find out what “caddywonked,” “fit to be tied,” “hoecake,” and other words mean from Reese herself.
Watch some of the biggest actors and actresses in Hollywood show off their secret talents. From Oprah Winfrey cleaning up dog poop and Emma Stone hopping on a pogo stick, to Natalie Portman translating Hebrew slang and Dakota Johnson sticking things in her teeth, the cover stars of Vanity Fair’s The Hollywood Issue have more than a few tricks up their sleeves.
The Draper James Spring 2018 collection has recently been released, and Reese and daughter Ava have been photographed together to promote the collection! You can see the photos and read their interview together at DraperJames.com – what a treat!! It’s a very pretty photoshoot. Here’s the behind the scenes video:
The Gallery has been updated with HD screencaptures from all the recent A Wrinkle In Time trailers, TV spots and featurettes. There are lots of new shots of Reese as Mrs Whatsit – the film looks like it’s going to be visually stunning! There are guaranteed to be a million more promotional videos in the next 6 weeks leading up to the films release on March 9th….
Here’s another batch of additional photos from 2018 events to date – this includes the SAG Awards and Producers Guild Awards. I really love both looks on Reese – the green SAG dress is so vibrant and different for her, and the Producers Guild dress is so pretty and feminine! Lots of great shots with Laura Dern at the SAGs, as well as screencaps of Reese cheering Nicole on during the show I think the SAG Awards might’ve marked the end of awards season for Big Little Lies – I don’t think there are any more major TV awards that will feature the show, so enjoy the cast photos from the SAGs! And congratulations once again to the cast and crew for their incredible awards season run and well deserved recognition!
