Take2MarkTV recently posted an old interview they did with Reese during the Cruel Intentions press tour – its a good watch:
I sat down with Reese Witherspoon in 1999 on the press tour for “Cruel Intentions.” We talked about why they reshot part of the movie’s big ending, as well as how good she is at reading people’s intentions. We also discussed the shooting difficulties of a big pool scene and how the success of another youth-oriented film might have helped in getting this movie the green light.
Golden Globe-winning actress Reese Witherspoon sat down to talk to HFPA journalist Margaret Gardiner about her decades in Hollywood, from her start in films like Cruel Intentions, Election, and Legally Blonde, to turning points in her career like Wild and Walk the Line, to her recent forays in television with The Morning Show and Big Little Lies, to her outside work like her use of fashion and her ongoing monthly book club that highlights and celebrates great and noteworthy works, and more.
We’re starting back at the beginning as we work on the TV Appearances section of the Gallery, and today have screencaptures and/or stills from Reese’s first appearances on US talk shows! Reese appeared on Leno and Conan in 1998, and during the latter show she talked about Pleasantville, Twilight/Paul Newman and Cruel Intentions. In 1999 she appeared on Letterman during which she talked about The Man In The Moon and her pregnancy, and then on Conan a couple of months later she was more heavily pregnant and talked about food cravings and Election. All were great interviews – Reese was so endearing in them and I loved hearing her talk about her movies!
Screencaptures and/or stills are in our Gallery, and the videos that are available online are posted below for you:
We’re going to start to work our way through updating and (trying so hard to) ‘complete’ the TV Appearances section of our Gallery now. The first additions are super rare and special, and deserve their own post.
Way back in February 1999, MTV aired a “special weekend of winter programming” at The Snow Summit Mountain Resort in Southern California. They featured music video premieres, snowboarding competitions, performances and reality shows/competitions … and a half hour special with the cast of Cruel Intentions! Reese, Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair joined host Carson Daly on the slopes for a chat about the film while 15 fans watched a preview of the film in a mountain chalet; when they’d finished watching, Reese and the cast joined them in a chalet for a Q&A session. Reese spoke about trying to make her character and relationship with Sebastien believable. We’ll have videos for you soon, but for now we’ve added screencaptures from the show to our Gallery. They are very small and of poor quality but very rare and a great addition none-the-less!
Reese has made so many TV appearances over the years, we’re hoping some of you will be able to help us complete this section. We have many of her appearances on major talk shows from the past 10 years, but if you have videos of appearances from before this, or any international shows then please get in touch!! Also, if you happen to have saved any of the videos from the site many years ago (10+ years ago) when we had a Video section, we’d really appreciate it if you could get in touch, as we lost most of them during changes in site hosts. Thank you!
Entertainment Weekly have given us the gift we always knew we needed – a Cruel Intentions reunion! The cast and crew sat down with the magazine to revisit the film for it’s 20th anniversary, and it makes a fantastic read!! Find the article text below, and we have scans in our Gallery:
Cruel Intentions cast spills all the details on making the seductive teen drama
Welcome back to Manchester Prep. In 1999, audiences gaped (and gasped) as Hollywood’s teen royalty engaged in sexual debauchery and 1-percenter power games in Roger Kumble’s erotic, darkly comedic modern classic, which returns to theaters Friday [22nd March] in honor of its 20th anniversary.
Here, in an EW exclusive, the filmmakers and cast members revisit the original tale of gossip girls and pretty little liars.
After watching 1996’s coming-of-age black comedy Welcome to the Dollhouse, playwright Roger Kumble felt inspired to pen a dark story centered on a young cast. So he took the soulless aristocrats of the 18th-century French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses and reimagined them as depraved upper-class Manhattan teens.
ROGER KUMBLE (writer-director): It’s just a great story. It’s got drama and comedy and tragedy, and you can’t do that so often these days. Movies have to fit in a box. You don’t know where to put Cruel Intentions in the aisle, you know?
Reese took time out of her holiday in the Caribbean to chat to fans on Facebook live yesterday. She and co-star Laura Dern also did an interview on Instagram. They revealed that they are considering a second season of Big Little Lies…
