Reese is on the cover of the new December/January issue of In Style US! She is interviewed by US broadcaster Gayle King, and they talk about Reese’s work as a producer, humility and ambition, her daughter and family, Legally Blonde and The Morning Show. It’s accompanied by a beautiful (but slightly photoshopped) new photoshoot. The behind the scenes video of the photoshoot interview is really good too – Reese talks about some of her past characters, what she thinks about some of her past red carpet outfits, the difference between acting and producing, the badass women that inspire her, the movie that made her want to be an actress (Broadcast News & Overboard), and what she thought when walking up to receive her Oscar. Read the interview and watch the behind the scenes video below, and find high quality photos in our Gallery. The magazine hits news-stands on Friday so be sure to pick up a copy!
Reese Witherspoon Isn’t Afraid to Say She’s the Best
With her recent nine-figure money moves and a full slate of upcoming projects, the Morning Show star is like the Lebron James of Hollywood — and she’ll be the first to tell you.
They share a mutual pal in Oprah Winfrey, but “we don’t have a great meet-cute story,” jokes Gayle King about her initial introduction to Reese Witherspoon. Over the years, they have gotten to know each other through corporate gatherings, private dinners, and, of course, regular interviews. (In 2019, King was even the subject as Witherspoon and her Morning Show co-star Jennifer Aniston were the ones asking the questions for a CBS Mornings segment.) When it was revealed this past summer that Witherspoon had sold her female-focused production company, Hello Sunshine, for around $900 million, King was among the first to salute her. “That was a big friggin’ deal,” said King during this talk for InStyle. “When I read it in the paper, I stood up and gave you a round of applause.”
Gayle King: What’s it like to be a badass? Own it, Reese!
Reese appeared on The View on September 15th whilst promoting The Morning Show. Reese looked smart in a purple dress by Gabriela Hearst with jewellery from Raven Fine Jewelers. It was another good interview – she chatted about the sale of Hello Sunshine and her mission to “re-center the world around women’s stories”, the infamous script she read 10 years ago that inspired her to start her own production company, the new season of The Morning Show and how it incorporates the real-world and the “new normal” coming from the pandemic, what made morning shows a good topic for a drama series, why Legally Blonde resonates with so many people, the fun she and Mindy Kaling are having working on Legally Blonde 3, her first appearance on The View, and her advice to new mothers. The videos are below and screencaptures are in our Gallery.
That’s all the coverage from Reese’s talk show appearances, but don’t forget to check out the promotional video interviews here for more interviews, and we’ll have screencaptures from these in our Gallery in time.
Reese attended a photocall for The Morning Show season 2 in Los Angeles last month, just prior to its release on our screens. She posed with some of her co-stars including Julianna Margulies. Reese looked stunning in a smart outfit by Rich Fresh, with Louboutin shoes – I wasn’t sure about this look at first but the more I see it the more I love it, it’s so different for Reese!

‘The Morning Show’ Remakes Itself. Again. The topical news drama, which reoriented its first season in response to the #MeToo movement, was forced by the pandemic to rewrite Season 2 as well.
The second season of “The Morning Show,” the starry Apple TV+ series about a “Good Morning America”-style talk show, was six weeks into filming in March 2020 when everything suddenly stopped cold.
“It was a Wednesday night, and we were discussing a scene that I had to shoot the next day,” recalled Jennifer Aniston, who plays one of the co-anchors of the fictional show-within-the-show and is also an executive producer of the series. “We were getting emails saying that this big company and that big company were shutting down. And then we hear that Tom and Rita got sick” — that would be Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, who contracted Covid early in the pandemic — “and all of a sudden the world is caving in on us.”
The production shut down March 11, the cast and crew scattered and the producers pondered how the show could go ahead. And when they returned (remotely) and decided to rework the season, their most immediate challenge was how to incorporate coronavirus into the story line, when the pandemic had just begun and no one knew how it would play out.
This mirrored, in fact, what happened during the first season, when events in the world — in that case, the ructions over the #MeToo movement — overtook what had been the script.
“The Morning Show,” introduced to great fanfare as the marquee program on the new Apple TV+ streaming service in 2019, was loosely inspired by Brian Stelter’s nonfiction book “Top of the Morning,” about the cutthroat politics of morning television. But while at first it was concerned mostly with the infighting between Alex Levy (Aniston) and her co-anchor Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), it revamped itself with broader ambitions that reflected the changes wrought by #MeToo.

As expected, Reese appeared on the Stand Up To Cancer telecast this weekend – it aired yesterday, but was probably filmed on Friday (?).
