Glamour Reese Witherspoon is an unofficial fansite dedicated to our Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon. The gallery houses over 97,000 images, we offer hundreds of media downloads, detailed information and the latest news on Reese and her career. We strive to bring you a complete archive on Reese’s career and an informative fansite without being intrusive of Ms. Witherspoon’s personal life. We aim to promote and support Reese’s professional career, provide fans with a fun and informative resource to get their dose of Reese, whilst also hopefully appealing to those looking to find out more about Reese. Hopefully you enjoy the website as much as we enjoy making it!
Glamour Reese Witherspoon was originally opened by April in November 2001 and Riikka joined the site as a co-webmaster in 2004. During the summer of 2005, April decided to leave the site due to other commitments, so she offered Riikka the opportunity to take over. She was joined by Lisa, who ran the site with her until October 2006. The website was then operated by Riikka and Mycah with the help of ‘walktheline’, our dedicated video staffer. Riikka left the site in 2008, and Mycah decided to step down in late 2009. Mycah gave the site to Lisa, and the current owner joined her on the staff soon after. Lisa then left the staff, leaving me as the sole owner, bringing us up to today.
Glamour Reese Witherspoon was created and has been maintained to show our love for Reese Witherspoon. We first noticed Reese in Cruel Intentions, and started to follow her career more when Legally Blonde was released. Reese is a tour-de-force on screen – she is a natural at comedy, but is moving and authentic in dramatic roles too. She has such screen presence and charisma that we enjoy watching her regardless of the genre of film she is making. Off screen, we admire how she values and protects her personal life, and her Southern manners. She seems like a dignified and good-humoured woman who knows what she wants and values her principles. In recent years, we’ve watched as she’s used her status and power to develop roles for women in entertainment and business. We admire how she’s developing her career and championing women in business.
We often receive emails asking why we do not display paparazzi photos in the Glamour Reese Witherspoon gallery. The reason is very simple; we believe that those images invade Reese’s privacy, and Reese has been very vocal against them. Glamour Reese Witherspoon is all about respecting Reese as an actress and we do not wish to support gossip-y journalism or paparazzi photography, or anything else that might be harmful to Ms. Witherspoon and her family. We understand that people are curious and there is nothing wrong with that but let’s remember that we should draw lines between what’s Reese’s public life and what is her private life. Reese actively speaks out against the paparazzi’s actions because of the dangerous situations that they have forced upon her and her children. She clearly does not like the paparazzi, and as fans, we respect that. Because of this, stalkerazzi photos can not be found at Glamour Reese Witherspoon – the only exception being when Reese is photographed at work on film sets.
“I understand that public life is a choice, but hiding behind bushes at the pre-school and jumping out and frightening the children? These people are really predatory, and they have a lack of regard for children as human beings. Every day they’re at the nursery school, and they jump out and try to get a reaction on your child’s face. I feel it’s unfair to my kids. I ‘ll say, ‘Please don’t frighten the children,’ and they’ll say, ‘F*ck you. I don’t care about you. I don’t care about your children!'”
– Reese Witherspoon, Vanity Fair magazine (2004)
