Our hearts are filled with love and respect for this wonderful woman, and we thank her for everything she’s doing. We can’t wait to see what she’ll do next, and we’ll be here to support her along the way. Happy Birthday, Reese!
Reese and Oprah appeared on ITV’s This Morning earlier today – they chatted about their favourite messages from the film, the importance of female leads in this film, and pulling out their “inner warrior”. They then took part in a quiz on how well they know each other, and interviewer Alison Hammond presented them each with a framed picture – Reese’s was one of her favourite quotes “I’m gonna squeeze the juice out of this orange”! Here’s the video – it’s a fun interview!
Reese and her A Wrinkle In Time co-stars Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden on Monday. The three-some were joined by Storm Reid to perform a “4D” version of the movie, directed and narrated by James Corden – don’t miss Reese’s lettuce costume or mini-meltdown! During the interview Reese, Mindy & Oprah talked about Reese being an “over-planner” on the set of their movie by scheduling numerous activities for them, Oprah’s love of bathing, how Reese learnt to drive when she was 11, and briefly Big Little Lies season 2. Reese was her typical perky, hilarious self, and her impression of Mindy Kaling was brilliant! Watch clips below and find HD screencaptures in our Gallery:
On Tuesday evening Reese attended the London premiere of A Wrinkle In Time, looking fabulous in a powder blue dress by Elie Saab. Reese accessorised with Louboutin heels, Tiffany jewellery, and a bag by Edie Parker. She was accompanied on the red carpet by her daughter, Ava, who sported a brand new bob haircut.

On the red carpet and during the Q&A Reese talked about the message of resilience and self-empowerment the film promotes, and the importance of hope and resilience in the world. She also spoke about her admiration for young co-star Storm Reid. Watch the Q&A and a red carpet interview below, and find the first high quality photos in our Gallery.

A Wrinkle in Time creators encourage girls to channel their inner warriors, pursue their dreams
HP joined Ava DuVernay and Reese Witherspoon to celebrate Black Girls Code and its mission to boost women of color in tech.
Everything starts with a story. Just ask Sasha Williams, a 16-year old with big dreams. On Feb. 24th, Williams didn’t just get a selfie — she got a hug and words of encouragement from Ava DuVernay, the directing powerhouse whose work, from 13th to Selma, tackles inclusion and racial division head on and continues to find new ways to define the art of storytelling.
The occasion was an event organized by HP, Disney and Nissan to bring together girls from Black Girls Code, a nonprofit that nurtures the tech skills of girls of color, to celebrate the release of DuVernay’s big-budget film, A Wrinkle in Time. With seven chapters in the U.S. and South Africa for girls 7 to 17, Black Girls Code runs after-school programs, summer camps and hackathons where local groups build projects ranging from websites to robots.
Giddy and tearful, Williams was electrified by her encounter with the director. “I’ve always looked up to [Ava]” says the young California native, who hopes to one day become a virtual-reality game designer. “And now, for her to take on this story about a little black girl trying to become a warrior, about being who you are, it’s just really inspiring.”
Williams wasn’t the only one energized by the moment. At the event, part coding challenge/part affirmation, 40 or so girls were treated to the first public showing of the film, as well as talks with several of the movie’s stars, including Storm Reid, who plays the story’s hero, Meg Murry; Reese Witherspoon; Chris Pine; and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.Continue reading this entry »
