Reese started work on the set of Big Little Lies on Friday. She shared a picture on her Twitter and Instagram pages:

I’ve now added photos from the rest of the 2006 events Reese attended. This includes the Toronto Film Festival premiere of Penelope, and the Teen Choice Awards, where Reese won the Choice Movie: Drama/Action-Adventure Actress award for Walk The Line.
To celebrate Christmas, I’ve updated the Gallery with over 900 HQ photos from Reese’s fabulous win at the Oscars in 2006. Reese wore a 1955 Christian Dior gown that she found in a vintage boutique in Paris – she later said about the dress “Oh my dress. I still have it, it’s been properly stored away. I’ll never wear it again; it was a moment in time. Maybe Ava will – it would make a pretty wedding dress”. I love this dress more with time, and her hair and make-up are just perfect. The photos are obviously just gorgeous, so enjoy browsing through them all!
Reese Witherspoon Sells Divorce Drama to ABC
‘Fear the Walking Dead’ writer Meaghan Oppenheimer will pen the script for ‘Please Don’t Go.’
ABC is looking to Reese Witherspoon for a divorce drama.
The network has picked up a script for Please Don’t Go, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Created by Meaghan Oppenheimer (Fear the Walking Dead), the project follows the personal and professional life of a ruthless divorce attorney in Dallas. Raised in the trailer parks of Texas, she has left behind a life of struggle amid squalor, working her way into a corner office and mansion in Dallas’ most prestigious neighborhood. But beneath her facade of togetherness, she’s plagued by self-destructive tendencies and long-hidden family secrets that begin to unravel her life.
Oppenheimer will exec produce the ABC Studios entry alongside Witherspoon and her studio-based Pacific Standard topper Bruna Papandrea.
Please Don’t Go marks the latest sale this development season for Pacific Standard. The company also is readying a romantic mystery drama from Rob Long for ABC and is among the producers attached to HBO’s Big Little Lies, in which Witherspoon will star.
Oppenheimer (The Remains) is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Morris Yorn. Witherspoon is with CAA, LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.
Divorce comedies have been one of the bigger trends to emerge this development season as broadcasters look for the family dynamic that isn’t currently on the air. ABC is teaming with romance novelist Nicholas Sparks and super-producer Shonda Rhimes for two different divorce comedies. HBO, meanwhile, has Sarah Jessica Parker comedy series Divorce coming in 2016.
Jean-Marc Vallee to Direct All Episodes of Nicole Kidman-Reese Witherspoon HBO Limited Series
The ‘Wild’ director and his producing partner will also exec produce ‘Big Little Lies.’
HBO’s Big Little Lies adaptation continues to draw A-list talent.
Jean-Marc Vallee (Wild, Dallas Buyers Club) has signed onto direct all seven episodes of the Nicole Kidman- and Reese Witherspoon-headlined limited series, the pay cabler announced Thursday.
Additionally, the Oscar-nominated helmer and his producing partner Nathan Ross have come onboard the series, which hails from TV veteran David E. Kelley, as executive producers. The project marks a reunion for Vallee, Witherspoon and Big Little Lies co-star Laura Dern, who all worked together on Wild. The film earned Oscar nominations for both actresses. Before Wild, Vallee earned an Oscar nomination for film editing for Dallas Buyers Club.
In addition to Dern, Shailene Woodley, Adam Scott and Zoe Kravitz have joined the limited series in recent weeks.
Witherspoon also will executive produce Little Big Lies, like Wild, through her Pacific Standard banner. Her producing partner, Bruna Papandrea, also will executive produce along with Kelley and Kidman, who will produce through her Blossom Films shingle with production partner Per Saari.
“I am thrilled to be making my TV debut with HBO tackling this material,” said Vallee. “After reading David’s amazing scripts, I spontaneously jumped at the opportunity to reteam with Reese and Bruna, as well as collaborating with Nicole and Per.”
Vallee was previously attached to direct the pilot episode of the series. However, his increased involvement is the latest in a growing trend. HBO found similar success when Cary Fukunaga signed on to helm the entire first season of True Detective, for which he won an Emmy. HBO’s sister channel Cinemax boasts Oscar-winning director Steven Sodenbergh, who has directed every episode of period drama The Knick, which he also exec produces.
Australian novelist Liane Moriarty will serve as a producer on Big Little Lies, which debuted atop the New York Times’ best-seller list. She previously penned best-sellers What Alice Forgot, Three Wishes, The Hypnotist’s Love Story and The Husband’s Secret.
Vallee, whose credits also include Demolition, is repped by David Weber.
Over the past couple of days I’ve continued on the lengthy task of completing the Events section of our Gallery, and have added photos from some of the events Reese attended in early 2006. This was during her Walk The Line awards season run, and new additions include pictures from the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards – where Reese won the Best Actress awards – as well as the Oscar Nominees Luncheon and a couple of Walk The Line photocalls in Europe. Reese looks absolutely gorgeous, and the Golden Globe pictures are some of my favourites! Enjoy them all in our Gallery….
Reese hosted the lighting of the National Christmas Tree in Washington D.C. last week – photos can be found in our Gallery and there are some videos further down this post…
Reese has lent her voice to Conservation International’s new ‘Nature Is Speaking’ campaign, which aims to give nature a voice to encourage people to take care of it. Reese voices the ‘home’ video, which you can watch below. Find out more at natureisspeaking.org and conservation.org
Nature Is Speaking is Conservation International’s invitation to the human race to listen to nature.
Nature is essential to every aspect of human life and well-being — we want to make sure it’s included in the conversation. People are taking more from nature than it has to give, and as a result, we’re putting our own lives on the line.
Nature’s message to humanity is simple: Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.
Reese Witherspoon: By lending my voice to nature, I hope to remind people at this critical moment that people need nature and its great gifts
