Reese Witherspoon: My Daughter Has Access to ‘Anything She Wants to Wear’ in My Closet
We can’t even imagine the gloriousness that is street style superhero Reese Witherspoon‘s closet, but we can imagine that if we were anywhere near it, we’d want everything. And there’s one young lady who has possibly the best proximity to one of the most enviable off-duty wardrobes ever, Witherspoon’s lookalike 15-year-old daughter, Ava. But just what is she permitted to borrow?
“Anything she wants to wear,” Witherspoon tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “She and I just swap clothes.”
Witherspoon adds of the budding fashionista, “She’s got great taste. I love to see the way she has her own sense of style. She’s a young woman and is really developing her sense of what she wants to look like.” That just happens to include rocking a whole lot of her mom’s line, Draper James, like the navy magnolia Nashville Shirt that we’ve spotted on Reese herself multiple times.
“It’s great to see her wear it and work it into her own wardrobe staples,” she says. “But she thinks I’m ridiculous, [saying], ‘I would never wear it like that, I’d wear it like this.’”
However, they do have similar taste when it comes to accessorizing — and beauty! “We actually both love the same hats, that’s what’s funny,” she says (check out her adorable Draper James Panama hat, below). “And we both love makeup. We go to Sephora maybe way too much. Ridiculous. But it’s fun — it’s great to have a girl and get to go shopping together and buy makeup and stuff.”
Aside from being a prime shopping buddy, Ava is also potentially a stand-in stylist. Says Witherspoon, “I really trust and value her opinion; she’s a very smart young woman and she helps me make a lot of decisions.”
To conclude our run of screencaptures from Reese’s impressive 2012-2014 film projects, we have HD screencaptures from Devil’s Knot. I felt the film lacked something overall, but Reese again gave a great performance and she was almost unrecognisable in the role. What did you think of the movie?

Reese Witherspoon to Receive American Cinematheque Award
The American Cinematheque will honor Reese Witherspoon with its annual award Oct. 30 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, the org announced today (July 23rd).
Witherspoon was most recently Oscar-nominated for lead actress in 2014’s “Wild,” which was produced by her Pacific Standard production company.
Rick Nicita, American Cinematheque chairman said: “Reese Witherspoon’s career is a perfect example of an actress flourishing in today’s world. She achieved commercial success early in comedies like ‘Election,’ ‘Legally Blonde’ and ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ and then added major critical success to her resume with movies such as ‘Walk the Line,’ for which she received the Academy award for best actress. She has refused to be limited to only certain types of roles and has continued to impress with her varied choices, ranging from smaller roles in dramas such as ‘Mud’ to a tour-de-force, Oscar-nominated performance last year in ‘Wild.’ She is an active and successful movie producer who is moving her career forward both behind and in front of the camera. The most appropriate role for Reese Witherspoon today is role model.”
The annual gala is a major fundraiser for the American Cinematheque and honors actors in mid-career who are making significant contributions to the film biz. Matthew McConaughey was last year’s honoree.
Besides “Wild,” Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard, in which she is partnered with Bruna Papandrea, also produced last year’s “Gone Girl.” She has also been active in charities including the Children’s Defense Fund, on whose board she serves; the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center; Save the Children; and Stand Up to Cancer.
Just last month, Reese and the Draper James team took a field trip down to Blue Ridge to meet the talented craftspeople who make each and every pair of our jeans. We watched the workers cut, stitch, and sew (42 steps in all!) and left incredibly impressed by their artistry and dedication. We are proud that these workers are continuing the rich history of Southern denim making and even prouder to say that they are making jeans for Draper James!

Reese Witherspoon At Center Of ‘All Is Not Forgotten’ Novel Deal By Warner Bros
Warner Bros late last night closed a significant preemptive acquisition of the GG Walker novel All Is Not Forgotten. Warner Bros president of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman was at the center of this one himself, with Reese Witherspoon and her Pacific Standard producing partner Bruna Papandrea producing. Deal happened right after the book sold to St. Martin’s Press following a five house bidding battle, with plans to publish spring, 2017. The author used a pseudonym but she is Wendy Walker, the author of Four Wives and Social Lives, which also were published by St. Martin’s Press. The movie deal was in the mid six figure against $1 million range.
Warner Bros will be getting more aggressive on the book front, and it seems to make a good deal of sense given the outsized success American Sniper meant to the studio. The studio also wants more with Witherspoon and Papandrea, who’ve proven themselves book savvy producers who last year produced both Gone Girl and Wild. They’ve been a catalyst for other movie deals including Fox 2000’s acquisition of Ashley’s War, the Tzemach Lemmon book about an elite group of women who fought alongside Green Berets and Army Rangers in Afghanistan.
Right now, Witherspoon is producing, but Warner Bros will court her to play a key role. Book is an adult thriller about a teenage girl in picturesque suburban Connecticut who is brutally attacked and raped, and the secrets that emerge during the course of the investigation. Witherspoon will be courted to play the girl’s mother, who decides with her husband to give their daughter a pill to erase her short term memory so she won’t relive the trauma of the rape.
This is Warner Bros’ third project with Witherspoon. They are developing the Maureen Sherry novel Opening Belle and the recently published Second Life by SJ Watson. CAA reps Witherspoon and Watson, who is represented for publishing by Wendy Sherman Associates.
