Reese Witherspoon Knows Rom-Coms Need an Image Makeover
Romantic-comedy heroines can seldom have it all. They’re either professionally successful and unlucky in love, or great with the kids and unfulfilled at work or in the bedroom.
But in “Home Again,” a comedy due Sept. 8, Reese Witherspoon is a walking empowerment meme, complete with a wardrobe of pristine white blazers: she’s a newly separated 40-year-old, the mother of two precocious girls who starts a promising career as an interior decorator and shacks up with a hot 27-year-old.
“It never would have even crossed my mind that she couldn’t be all those things,” the writer-director Hallie Meyers-Shyer said, adding, “That wasn’t my experience growing up.”

(A follow-up is being discussed with Liane Moriarty, the author of the novel on which it’s based, Ms. Witherspoon said.)

These are edited excerpts from the conversation.Continue reading this entry »

Home Again director Hallie Meyers-Shyer spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about her movie and its star:
Reese Witherspoon Talks Family, Her Mindy Project Gig and Her First Red Carpet: “I Wore Cowboy Boots!”
You can take the girl out of Nashville, but you can’t take Nashville out of the girl!
It’s no shocker that Reese Witherspoon is a southern girl through and through. The actress has never been shy about discussing her Southern belle upbringing, and when E! News’ Jason Kennedy spoke with her at the Home Again premiere, she shared a fun fact about her first premiere in Los Angeles.
“You know what’s crazy, my first premiere was here in this building, right there,” she revealed. “I was 14 years old and I wore cowboy boots.” Not the typical red carpet glam you’d expect, but Reese had her reasons. “Well, I was from Nashville,” the actress shared.Continue reading this entry »
