They also touched an important matter going on now on Renee Zellweger change and many other topics on being a woman in Hollywood and being an actress. Here’s a piece of the interview and you can read it fully over at www.hollywoodreporter.com
Reese, you’ve had success as a producer this year with Gone Girl and Wild. A lot of actors have transitioned into producers, but far fewer actresses have done that. Why is that?
WITHERSPOON I can’t speak for other people. I just recognize that about three years ago, I started seeing this complete lack of interesting female leads in film. First I got mad, really mad. And then I was like, “It’s nobody’s fault; if you’re not proactive about things …” I’d had a company before, but it was basically about trying to develop things that I would eventually be in. So I just switched the idea: If I can develop anything for any other women, I don’t care who it is; I just want my daughter to grow up seeing complex, interesting, nuanced women in film. So I started it with my own money — you know, the first thing people tell you is, “Don’t put your own money into anything” — so I was like, is this really dumb? But I got a great partner [Bruna Papandrea] and the first two things I sent her were Gone Girl and Wild. And those were the first books that we optioned.
Did you ever think about starring in Gone Girl?
WITHERSPOON I was always open to doing it, but whenever David Fincher says he wants to do a project, you just sit back and say, “Whatever you want to do.” We had a long conversation where he was like, “You’re not right for it. And this is why.” And I actually completely agreed with him.
‘Real women do curse. They sleep around, they use drugs, they do all sorts of different things and some of them are good mothers and some are bad mothers. They are multi-faceted.’
Surprising words, you might think, for the woman still best known as a ditzy law student in Legally Blonde. But then the latest Hollywood epic, Wild, is new territory for Reese Witherspoon.
Based on a best-selling 2012 book of the same name, the £30 million film is the remarkable story of how writer Cheryl Strayed set off on a 1,100-mile hike to ‘find herself’ after a bitter divorce and the death of her mother.
The book chronicles Strayed’s descent into heroin abuse, nights of casual sex – and how she ‘emotionally rebuilt’ herself during her epic journey.
The film is tipped to earn Witherspoon her second Oscar. She says: ‘After Cheryl’s mother died, she was very self-destructive. She was married but she slept around. She had no respect for her husband and she had no respect for herself.
‘She was so angry and in such pain that she wanted to do anything to help herself feel alive – that included having sex with strangers, doing drugs, putting herself in dangerous situations.’
While the book and film closely guard the identity of the husband whose rejection prompted the marathon walk – both refer to him simply as ‘Paul’ – The Mail on Sunday can today reveal that he is 48-year-old baker Marco Littig.
I’ve updated the gallery with HQ images of Reese on stage and off from the 18th Annual Hollywood Film Awards that took place yesterday during which Reese presented the award for ‘Hollywood Breakthrough Director’. Reese was wearing a J. Mendel piece from his Spring 2015 collection.
Reese was the opening ceremony of Los Cabos International Film Festival to promote her new movie Wild with a press interview conference and the premiere of the movie. Enjoy the few HQ pictures I found!
After winning the 2005 Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in “Walk the Line,” Reese Witherspoon unfortunately caught the Oscar curse, also known as the Cuba Gooding Jr. syndrome, which pulls certain stars into obscurity instead of further propelling their careers. During the years following her big win, Witherspoon starred in a series of fluffy comedies that were box-office duds and gradually became persona non grata for leading major studio releases.
Recently, she’s been trying her hand at a female version of The McConnaissance as she takes on more daring and challenging roles in indies. The tactic seems to be working. After receiving praise for her supporting role as the profoundly damaged romantic obsession to Matthew McConaughey in “Mud,” her performance as Cheryl Strayed in “Wild,” based on Strayed’s autobiography about her 1100-mile hike across the Pacific Crest Trail, is getting rave reviews.
