Reese’s new UK Glamour magazine cover hits newsstands today, and to promote the occassion, some photos and quotes from the spread have been posted online! Below are the quotes released, and you can find the photos in our Gallery – Reese looks absolutely beautiful!
“Once I turned 35 I felt so much better but the anticipation leading up to it was miserable. It was less, ‘How do I look?’ and more, ‘What do I want to accomplish in life? Is this the career I love? Is this the legacy I want to leave for my kids?'”
“A lot of women who go through different things – like going through a divorce or whatever – talk to me and I always say, ‘You’re going to get through this. I know that sounds simple, but you really are. You’re going to be a different person, but you’ll be a better person.’ You have to look at all sides of everything – really look at your own behaviour. And be clear about the sort of person you want to be. And write it all down. I wish I’d written down more. All these life experiences. The good and the bad – all those feelings,”
“I’m not for it. I’m not against it. I have plenty of friends who do stuff and if it makes you feel good, great. But I don’t think it’s the fix for some sort of unease that you’re having about who you are as a human being. I don’t think I need plastic surgery at this point. Can we just go day-by-day on that one?”
The mother-of-two revealed she works out for an hour five days a week, doing yoga, spinning or running and admitted she has adjusted her diet to keep in shape.
Reese said: “”I don’t worry about it. I have the body I earned. I had two kids and I’m still strong and healthy.
“And you start to have a different respect for your body the older you get. Instead of tearing yourself apart all the time, you start to go ‘Oh wow’.”
“I have this fixation about this black leather The Row purse, but it’s so prohibitively expensive, I will not allow myself to buy it. I literally go to the store to visit it. Too much money – it feels decadent. I can’t wrap my brain around it. If I bought it, I’d only feel upset about it and take it back.”
Check out this super rare treat of Reese talking to MTV way back in 1991 – that’s 21 years ago! I can’t believe Reese has been working in Hollywood for that long, can you?
Unfortunately those outside the US can’t view the video (thanks, MTV), but hopefully there will be some other way for us to get it, and if so I will of course post here.
Reese Witherspoon is slated to sit down with MTV News on Tuesday for an exclusive interview and premiere of a previously unseen clip from her upcoming film “This Means War.” The special, “MTV First: Reese Witherspoon,” will air on Tuesday at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV.
But before we look to the future, we are going to take a peep at her past. MTV News has uncovered a precious vintage gem, a 1991 interview with the then up-and-comer. “Ever since I was 7,” the already precocious and sassy rookie told MTV News when asked whether she had always had her sights set on a career in Hollywood. “I just thought, I always wanted to do something really outgoing ’cause when I was little I was really kind of quiet, but you know, I’d always be really creative at home and stuff, and finally I started, you know, speaking out and doing little things to impress everybody.”
She further explained that once she had decided that acting was something she wanted to do, she took the necessary steps to make sure she’d be ready for fame and stardom. “I started taking little acting classes and improv classes and, you know, [that] turned out to be what I was going to do,” she said. “I was always going to do something really out there, really far away. Does that make any sense? No, not really.”
Reese, Christoph Waltz and Robert Pattinson appeared on the French TV show ‘Le Grand Journal’ today. You can watch the videos (I think there are 2 parts) HERE or click the screencap below, as I don’t seem to be able to embed them! Screencaps will be added asap.
ABCNews.com have posted a great new interview with Reese, including a short out-take in which she breaks into song! Unfortunately they have disabled embedding, so just click the links below to watch the videos:
Where does Robert Pattinson begin and Edward Cullen end? At this point in the young “Twilight” thesp’s career it’s tough to separate the heartthrob actor from the heartthrob bloodsucker, but he’s currently making his second attempt at changing all that – after one false start with the disappointing “Remember Me” – with “Water for Elephants”, the upcoming adaptation of Sara Gruen’s bestselling historical novel. In the film, Pattinson plays Jacob Jankowski, a circus veterinarian who gets involved in a messy love triangle with equestrian beauty Marlena (Reese Witherspoon) and her ruthless animal-trainer husband August (“Inglourious Basterds’” charming Christoph Waltz).
Given the talent pedigree of the film, which was directed by “I Am Legend” helmer Francis Lawrence, it would seem a smart choice for Pattinson to take on the more “adult” role opposite Witherspoon and Waltz, though the actor certainly wasn’t about to admit to that kind of career calculation to a room full of image-burnishing journalists (he needs to stay “relatable”, after all). He’d rather have us believe he accepted the part merely for the opportunity to work with “Tai” (in the film she’s named ”Rosie”), the trained elephant who in the film is purchased by August to help boost his traveling show’s anemic ticket sales.
“I basically decided to do the movie at that point”, said the elegantly-rumpled Pattinson of first meeting the pachyderm, who’d earlier been on display outside the swanky Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica where the press conference was being held. “I hadn’t read the script or anything!”
Luckily he wasn’t on the panel for Pattinson to unintentionally offend screenwriter Richard LaGravenese – only Lawrence, Waltz, and Witherspoon, the latter speaking in that slight Tennessee drawl as she described her own first encounter with the enormous animal.
As posted about a while ago, Reese is on the cover of the May issue of US Vogue. Well I am now finally able to provide you with more coverage from the issue! My fabulous friend Luciana has sent me some perfect HQ photos from the Water For Elephants themed photoshoot, and Vogue.com have also posted the interview, which you can read below.
Now all we need is scans of the magazine! Let me know if you can help with this 😉
What do you think about the new photoshoot and interview? I think the interview is great, and shows off the ‘new’ Reese. She seems really happy and contented at the moment, which is wonderful!
Reese Witherspoon: A Day at the Circus
On March 26, Reese Witherspoon was married to talent manager Jim Toth in a simple, elegant affair at her ranch in Ojai, California. Vogue’s Jonathan Van Meter spoke to the actress a few months before her wedding and discovered that, although the actress learned to ride an elephant for her role in the film, that’s nothing compared to balancing fame, love, and family.
Here she comes, waving like Miss America but looking like a blonde Audrey Hepburn. She is dressed in all black—leggings, cardigan, Wayfarers, and a kitten heel. The wave is hilariously exuberant, and even from a block away, as she strides purposefully toward me, I can see that the smile is comic: forced and way too big. And with that one winning gesture—a perfectly timed little burst of goofball—Reese Witherspoon signals that she is not only painfully aware that the sidewalk has suddenly become a runway lined with paparazzi yelling her name on an otherwise quiet Thursday afternoon in Santa Monica, but also that she is OK with it. Look at my weird life! she shouts without saying a word.
It’s a beautiful sunny day in early February, and we are meeting at the Blue Plate Oysterette, a hip little seafood joint not far from the Santa Monica Pier. Witherspoon, still at the curb, stares at the outside tables for a moment and then looks back at the photographers in the street still snapping away. She glances at the hostess, then at me, and finally says, with an ironic exclamation point, “How about inside!”
