Would Reese Witherspoon Ever Compete in a Singing Competition?
In the new movie “Sing,” Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey show off some of their singing chops — but if they had a sing-off, who would win?
While chatting with “Extra’s” Renee Bargh, Reese admitted she might not be winning any singing competitions. “I wouldn’t be the best. I’d be, like, okay.” Matthew chimed in, “That’s not what you said this morning,” to which Reese shot back, “No, you asked me if I’d win a dance competition and that was a yes… Other people shouldn’t even try.”
Reese does love watching shows like “The Voice,” saying, “There’s something very hopeful about them. I still get emotional when I see people breaking into the business because I’ve had a lot of those feelings. I had bad auditions and good auditions. It’s hard to put yourself out there and be vulnerable.”
“Sing” is in theaters now.
Sing opened at #2 at the US box office this weekend, taking $35,290,000 on its opening weekend. It has taken an estimated $76,692,640 in the US so far, and a total of $93,954,652 worldwide.
Trivia fans will be interested to know that Reese was once attached to star in Passengers, the 3rd ranking movie of the week.
Box office report: Rogue One reigns again, Passengers stumbles
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story kept fanning the flames of Disney’s record-setting year at the box office, storming past a crowded slate of new holiday releases to claim the top spot on the domestic chart for the second week in a row.
The Gareth Edwards-directed space opera — which takes place shortly before the events of Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope — fell just under 59 percent across its sophomore frame, finishing the three-day weekend with an estimated $64.4 million. The film’s four-day gross is estimated to tally $96.1 million for a $555 million worldwide haul in just 10 days.
Unadjusted for inflation, Rogue One‘s $318.1 million North American total is now the fourth-largest in Lucasfilm’s history and the ninth-highest of 2016. By the end of its run, Rogue One will likely dethrone fellow Disney release Finding Dory ($486.3 million) as the year’s top-grossing picture.
At a distant second is Illumination and Universal’s Sing, the animated family musical featuring the voices of Scarlett Johansson, Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, and Seth MacFarlane. The film bagged $35.3 million for the three-day weekend, a number that inflates to an estimated four-day take of $56.1 million. Sing‘s holiday numbers are just over half of what Universal’s summer hit The Secret Life of Pets ($104.4 million) did in July, meaning the $75 million film will likely finish in the $150-$200 million range.
Rounding out the top three was the Jennifer Lawrence/Chris Pratt vehicle Passengers, a $110 million space-set, Morten Tyldum-directed sci-fi romance with a first-weekend gross proving its leads are as prone to stumbles as other A-list stars.Continue reading this entry »

The star, 40, is gearing up for the holidays by making sure all her family’s favorite things are under the Christmas tree, especially for her three children: daughter Ava, 17, son Deacon, 13 (from her first marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe), as well as son Tennessee, 4 (with her husband of five years, agent Jim Toth).
“My kids already have fond memories of our Christmas traditions,” says Witherspoon, wearing the Winter Deer Skirt ($195) from her clothing line Draper James in the photo below. “They’re definitely not grown up. They still love presents.”
