The Friends: The Reunion TV special premiered on Thursday, and as expected Reese was one of the ‘guest stars’. She wasn’t there in person unfortunately – she’d taped a short snippet talking about what she enjoyed about the show. Reese said one of the most exciting things for her on the show was Joey saying his iconic “how you doin'” line to her, and she also talked about her disbelief when she was offered the role of Jill Green, and how great each of the characters were individually as well as together. Her enthusiasm for the show was clear, and it was great seeing her take part in this special! The whole show is well worth a watch 🙂 We haven’t been able to find a clip of Reese’s segment yet (we’ll keep looking) but Entertainment Tonight had a feature on the guest stars on the reunion, which includes a snippet from Reese. We do have HD screencaptures in our Gallery from the special:
Reese will be making an appearance in the upcoming Friends reunion special!

Reese Witherspoon, 45, has transformed her role in Hollywood from movie star to business leader—and maker of her own fortune. After rising as a child actor, she shot to household-name status for 2001’s Legally Blonde, going on to win an Oscar in 2006 for Walk the Line. But even after those triumphs, for a time she struggled to find satisfying roles in Hollywood, where women’s stories have long been sidelined. She discovered a way to change that in a lifelong love: books. Celebrating books through her book club—and adapting them for the screen—is now the foundation of Witherspoon’s business at Hello Sunshine, the media company she founded in 2016, where she’s established a track record for spotting, and making, hits.
Reese attended the Oscars last night! For her first red carpet appearance since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Reese looked incredible in a red Dior dress, with Bulgari jewellery, and Jimmy Choo heels. She was on hand to present the award for Best Animated Feature (to Soul) at the ‘main’ ceremony (they had hubs in different cities around the world for screenings) at Union Station in Los Angeles. We’ve run out of time today so have added the first handful of photos, but will be back with more in the coming days:
Reese’s 1996 classic Fear was released 25 years ago this month! To mark this, Entertainment Tonight shared a new-old video interview with Mark Wahlberg on the set of the movie – although there’s no footage of Reese, it’s interesting to hear him talk about the movie:
‘Fear’ turns 25! Mark Wahlberg chatted with ET about playing a villain in ‘Fear,’ and reacted to his status as a sex symbol in this 1996 interview. The rapper turned underwear model turned actor took audiences on a roller coaster of mayhem, and Wahlberg described his character as a ‘grown-up Chucky.’ He joked that his natural talent for acting comes from being ‘a born liar,’ but admitted the role was a challenge because he enjoyed working with his co-stars, which included Reese Witherspoon and ‘CSI’s William Peterson. While he was most well-known for his Calvin Klein commercials, and being the titular frontman of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, Wahlberg said he wasn’t concerned that his image might hold him back in Hollywood. In a reference to the movie’s ending, Wahlberg joked that ‘If you like me, you’ll like the movie. If you don’t like me, you’ll like the movie.’
Reese Witherspoon invites Reese’s Book Club pick “Group” author Christie Tate to talk about the importance of therapy. Listen to their honest discussion about letting yourself open up in order to fully realize your voice.
Reese will be presenting at the Oscars this coming Sunday (25th April), and it sounds as if she will be there in person!
