Happy Birthday Reese Witherspoon!

If you have followed my blog at all it is no secret that Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite people in all of Hollywood. She is someone who speaks her mind, sometimes gets drunk, and most of all, she works hard. She currently is putting together more female based content with her production company Southern Pacific and she wants to make women more than just a love interest in movies.

Over the weekend Reese had a pretty epic birthday bash, my invitation was lost in the mail, but hey, it’s okay! I will just write a blog she will probably never read wishing her a happy birthday!

So happy 40th birthday Reese, thank you for bringing Elle Woods to life along with the many other memorable roles you have played. You are a true inspiration!

Reese Witherspoon Had The Best Birthday Ever


photo credit

So technically Reese Witherspoon doesn’t turn 40 until March 22nd, but over the weekend she celebrated it, and she had a seriously awesome celebration. It was filled with stars like Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, and Kate Hudson, just to name a few.

Oh not only did Keith and Taylor attend but they did a mini performance of ‘Shake It Off’ for Reese, how perfect is that? Just casually having Taylor Swift perform at your birthday party, no big deal. I guess my invite probably got lost in the mail, so my feelings aren’t too hurt by it.

Let’s be real though, a video of Reese singing ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, does it get any better than that? I don’t think that it does.

Happy birthday Reese, thank you for being one of my inspirations for the past 15 or so years!

Reese Witherspoon Mourns The Death Of Her ‘Legally Blonde’ Costar Bruiser Woods

reese witherspoon mourns death of dog bruiser woods 02photocredit-JustJared.com

“With a sad heart, I have to let all the #LegallyBlonde fans know that Bruiser Woods (also known as Moonie) passed away yesterday, He was a sweet little Chihuahua who was very loved. I will never forget all the days we spent together … I’m sure his tail is wagging in the sky. Sending love to his trainer, the wonderful @tailsticks #RIPBruiser 💔,”

I feel like Reese Witherspoon owes a lot of her career to Bruiser Woods aka Moonie. He was one of her best costars of all time. Screw Joaquin Phoenix, Moonie was a legend. Easily one of the best dogs to ever be on film!

What other dog could help a young blonde make her way through Harvard Law? Only Bruiser could.

Rest in puppy peace Moonie! Easily one of the best dogs on film of all time.

Reese Witherspoon Gave An Incredibly Powerful Speech At Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards

(image and article credit)

If you have followed my blog at all you are probably aware that I love Reese Witherspoon and I have since ‘Cruel Intentions’. I always found her an incredible actress and reading about her actions off screen make me love her even more. Minus that whole DD thing, hey we all have our moments, right? She is a woman who has come a long way. Most people assumed that Elle Woods was just going to be another ditsy blonde character when in reality she was a strong headed woman who went after what she wanted. At first she thought it was a man but by the end she realized it was her future, she wanted to change her world and she did. I know that most people wouldn’t consider Elle Woods a trailblazer but in the movie world, she was and still is.

Now I know that the speech below is long, but I reccomend you reading it, most people now have the attention span of a fly, take a few minutes and really read her speech, she is truly incredible.

Reese Witherspoon: I can’t thank Glamour magazine enough and Conde Nast and Cindi for asking me to be here. You just made this night so amazing. These incredible, inspiring women are doing so many things to change how we perceive women, and I hope Amy Schumer and all the other nominees that when you consider making your biopic, you’ll give me the rights first, which would be great. Although Amy, I’ll have to play your grandmother in the movie (by Hollywood standards), and you’ll probably have to play your own mother.

I’m so excited that so many young women are here tonight.This all started for me when I was a little girl. I was 14 years old when I learned that I love acting, and I still do. Acting allows me to slip into the skin of all kinds of different women, and not in a creepy Silence of the Lambs way…but in a way that lets me explore the full spectrum of humanity. Every woman I’ve ever played is passionate and strong and flawed, except for Tracy Flick. She’s 100% perfect, but she made me say that. But I also learned at 14 years old that I was ambitious. Really ambitious. Did I say that out loud? Let’s talk about ambition.

I want everybody to close their eyes and think of a dirty word, like a really dirty word. Now open your eyes. Was any of your words ambition? I didn’t think so. See, I just kind of started wondering lately why female ambition is a trait that people are so afraid of. Why do people have prejudiced opinions about women who accomplish things? Why is that perceived as a negative? In a study by Georgetown University in 2005, a group of professors asked candidates to evaluate male efficient versus female efficient in politicians. Respondents were less likely to vote for power-seeking women than power-seeking men. They also perceived ambitious women as looking out for themselves. They even reported ambitious women as provoking feelings of disgust.

Now, in my life I have always found more comfort in being the underdog. Whether people thought I couldn’t do something or they said it was impossible, I always rose to the challenge. I enjoyed reaching for the impossible. I remember when I was 18 years old and applying to colleges, I had this male college counselor, and he said, “Don’t even bother applying to Stanford, sweetie. Your SAT scores aren’t good enough.” But I did it anyway, and I got in. (But it wasn’t because of my SAT scores!)

When I got into the film business, I was doing dramas, and casting directors didn’t know if I could be funny. So I did a comedy, Legally Blonde, and then my entire career I was pigeonholed. I did comedies, they didn’t think I was serious. I did dramas, they didn’t think I was funny. And I got older and they didn’t think I could still be viable. So about three years ago, I found myself very curious about the state of the movie business. I really wondered how the digital evolution was affecting the landscape of filmmaking and specifically why studios were making fewer and fewer movies. So I started asking questions, and I decided to meet with the heads of each of the different movie studios that I had been friends with for years and I had made many movies with them. Each of the meetings started with something very casual like, “How are your kids?” and “Wow, has it really been that long since Walk the Line?” At the end of the meeting, I sort of casually brought up, “So, how many movies are in development with a female lead?” And by lead, I don’t mean wife of the lead or the girlfriend of the lead. The lead, the hero of the story. I was met with nothing, blank stares, excessive blinking, uncomfortable shifting. No one wanted to answer the question because the fact was the studios weren’t developing anything starring a woman. The only studio that was was turning a man’s role into a woman’s role. And the studio heads didn’t apologize. They don’t have to apologize. They are interested in profits—and after all, they run subsidiary companies of giant corporations.

But I was flabbergasted. This was 2012, and it made no sense to me. Where was our Sally Field in Norma Rae or Sigourney Weaver in Alien or Goldie Hawn in, you name it, any Goldie Hawn movie: Overboard, Wildcats, Private Benjamin? These women shaped my idea of what it meant to be a woman of strength and character and humor in this world. And my beautiful, intelligent daughter, who is 16 years old now, would not grow up idolizing that same group of women. Instead, she’d be forced to watch a chorus of talented, accomplished women Saran wrapped into tight leather pants, tottering along on very cute, but completely impractical, shoes turn to a male lead and ask breathlessly, “What do we do now?!” Seriously, I’m not kidding. Go back and watch any movie, and you’ll see this line over and over. I love to ask questions, but it’s my most hated question.

I dread reading scripts that have no women involved in their creation because inevitably I get to that part where the girl turns to the guy, and she says, “What do we do now?!” Do you know any woman in any crisis situation who has absolutely no idea what to do? I mean, don’t they tell people in crisis, even children, “If you’re in trouble, talk to a woman.” It’s ridiculous that a woman wouldn’t know what to do.

So, anyway, after going to these studios and telling people about how there’s barely any female leads in films and the industry’s in crisis, people were aghast. “That’s horrible,” they said. And then they changed the subject and moved on with their dinner and moved on with their lives. But I could not change the subject. I couldn’t turn to some man and say, “What do we do now?” This is my life.

I’ve made movies all my life, for 25 years, since I was 14 years old. It was time to turn to myself and say, “OK, Reese, what are we going to do now?” The answer was very clear. My mother, who is here tonight, a very strong, smart Southern woman, said to me, “If you want something done, honey, do it yourself.”

So, I started my own production company, Pacific Standard Films, with the mission to tell stories about women. And I was nervous, y’all. I was spending my own money, which everyone in the movie business always tells you, “Don’t spend your own money on anything.” I was warned that on the crazy chance Pacific Standard would acquire any good scripts we would never make it past our first few years in business because there just wasn’t a market for buying female-driven material. But like Elle Woods, I do not like to be underestimated.

I’m a very avid reader. In fact, I’m a complete book nerd. So is my producing partner, so we tore through tons of manuscripts and read so many things before they were published, but we could only find two pieces of material that we thought were right. We optioned them with our own money, and we prayed that they would work. Both had strong, complicated, fascinating women at the center and both were written by women. And lo and behold, both books hit number one on the New York Times bestsellers list. One is called Gone Girl, and the second is calledWild. So we made those two films last year, and those two films rose to over half a billion dollars world wide and we got three Academy Award nominations for women in acting performances. So that is year one. Against the odds, Pacific Standard has had a year two and year three. We bought five more bestselling books. Next year, we’re going to make two of those, Big Little Lies and Luckiest Girl Alive, into films. We have over 25 films in development and three television shows, and they all have female leads of different ages and different races and different jobs. Some are astronauts, some are soldiers, some are scientists, one is even a Supreme Court justice. They’re not just good or bad; they’re bold and hunted and dangerous and triumphant like the real women we meet every single day of our lives. But our company isn’t just thriving because it feels like a good thing to do. It’s thriving because female-driven films work. This year alone, Trainwreck with Amy Schumer, Melissa McCarthy’s Spy, Pitch Perfect 2, Cinderella, the Hunger Games franchise, those made over $2.2 billion worldwide. Films with women at the center are not a public service project, they are a big-time, bottom-line-enhancing, money-making commodity.

I think we are in a culture crisis in every field. In every industry, women are underrepresented and underpaid in leadership positions. Under 5 percent of CEOs of fortune 500 companies are women. Only 19 percent of Congress is women. No wonder we don’t have the health care we deserve or paid family leave or public access to early childhood education. That really worries me. How can we expect legislation or our needs to be served if we don’t have equal representation? So here’s my hope: If you’re in politics, media, the tech industry, or working as an entrepreneur or a teacher or a construction worker or a caregiver, you know the problems we are all facing. I urge each one of you to ask yourselves: What do we do now? That’s a big question. What is it in life that you think you can’t accomplish? Or what is it that people have said that you cannot do? Wouldn’t it feel really good to prove them all wrong? Because I believe ambition is not a dirty word. It’s just believing in yourself and your abilities. Imagine this: What would happen if we were all brave enough to be a little bit more ambitious? I think the world would change.credit

If this doesn’t get you motivated to go out there and change the world, I don’t know what will.

Reese Witherspoon Looks Incredible On The Cover Of Women’s Health Magazine!

Credit: http://www.womenshealthmag.com

Reese is incredible, let’s be real. She is one of my favorite actresses and she has been for well over a decade, she is just perfect. She embodies everything that I want to be. She is strong, hilarious, and seems like she knows how to have a good time. I mean you don’t hang out with someone like Chelsea Handler and have a bad personality, I am just going to throw that out there.

Here are a few little excerpts from her interview that I absolutely loved. Again I think that Reese is such a powerful woman in Hollywood with a great passion for everything that she does.

On any secrets she hasn’t told about herself: “I am a bit of a hip-hop dancer. That’s sort of a secret a lot of people don’t know. I like to dance. I’ve got a dance in my heart at all times.”

On how things have changed since her first magazine shoot: “I remember when I booked my first cover of a magazine. I was so excited and then I got the magazine cover to show everybody and my eye was blinking and you couldn’t even tell it was me. But it didn’t diminish my excitement. It’s always fun and it’s really nice to collaborate with talented people and get to play with the clothes and the jewelry. I’m very much a girly girl so I enjoy all that stuff.”

On ambition: “How wonderful it would be for our culture not to see ambition as an ugly thing within a woman’s personality! In our society, when we see women who want to succeed or who view themselves as leaders, it’s like ‘How arrogant!’ Well, I think it’s fantastic.”

A few other things I loved while reading her interview was how she brought up the fact her production company Southern Pacific is all about bringing books to life. Alright, books are always better than the movie, but hey that is fine. Most people don’t realize she was one of the producers for “Gone Girl” and that movie was insanely good.

Being an ambitious woman is something that women should strive to be. Whatever you want to be, be a good one, that is one of my favorite sayings of all time.

Reese is going to be around forever and I am beyond excited about that.

‘Cruel Intentions’ costars Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair reunite!

640_cruel_intentions_reunion_instagram

This is very important this is not a drill! These ladies all reunited last night for an absolutely incredible reason, the ‘Cruel Intentions’ Musical. That is right! There is a musical based on that perfect movie from the 90’s and if you get to go because you live in California, I am insanely jealous.

Looks like the three ladies had an amazing time, they were snapping pictures and posting them on Instagram the whole time! I have always wondered if they would remake ‘Cruel Intentions’ then I realized no one could ever play Kathryn like Sarah Michelle Gellar did, she just completely slayed the part.

I think we can all agree that ‘Cruel Intentions’ is an absolute classic, right?

Anyway here are a few more pictures from the reunion!

reese witherspoon selma blair sarah michelle gellar cruel intentions reunion 02

and yes they even recreated “the kiss”

Just wanted to end off this article with a quote from the baddest bitch out there Kathryn “Eat me, Sebastian! It’s okay for guys like you and Court to fuck everyone. But when I do it, I get dumped for innocent little twits like Cecile. God forbid, I exude confidence and enjoy sex. Do you think I relish the fact that I have to act like Mary Sunshine 24/7 so I can be considered a lady? I’m the Marcia fucking Brady of the Upper East Side, and sometimes I want to kill myself. So there’s your psychoanalysis, Dr. Freud. Now tell me, are you in… or are you out?”

Reese Witherspoon Slays The 2015 Met Gala Red Carpet!

reese witherspoon met gala 2015 03

Honestly how is Reese Witherspoon even real? I mean does she even age? In my opinion Reese can do absolutely no wrong. Except maybe that movie with Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, whatever that was it wasn’t good.

Look at this though! Reese just slaying the red carpet, all five foot nothing of her showing some leg, incredible eye make up, and a gorgeous necklace! I do wish she did something different with her hair, but whatever I am game for anything that Reese does!

Slay Reese slay!

Top Ten Best Dressed Women Of The 2015 Oscars!

Tonight there has been a lot of hype over the red carpet and for good reason! The Oscars are the Super Bowl of fashion and I think we can all agree that I know nothing about fashion. For the Grammys’ I tried really hard to put my fashion knowledge to what I liked and what I didn’t It was very clear that I didn’t know what I was talking about. So I called in two fashion experts to help me out!

Let me introduce my guest bloggers @emilyyfrancesca & @Hannahhhdoll ! These two girls know fashion and I am proud to call them friends as well! Their first comment of the night “winter whites/Ice Blue, pinks and Reds are the trend of the carpet tonight! A lot of texture so far too!”

So let’s get this show on the road! Here are the best dressed at the 2015 Oscars!

10. Jennifer Hudson

Emily & Hannah: In Romona Keveza This yellow against her skin tone is phenomenal.  The silhouette is perfection and that skinny gold belt ties everything together. Those emerald earrings? Gorgeous.

Willi: I think she looks great! Her hair looks great, her dress fits her body perfect! Fat Jennifer Hudson from those Weight Watchers commercials would be so proud of this version of Jennifer Hudson! (See why I needed the help of Em and Han?)

9. Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, 2015 Academy Awards, Couples

Emily & Hannah: In Suhair Murad: One of the hottest trends of the night is this icy blue color. The girl can wear anything. Love the vampy lip with that ice blue. Most unlikely combo but it is working!

Willi: Alright, I don’t love this dress but I can respect that she is working her legs like that! Damn girl, you are killing it. Let’s be real her best accessory is her husband John Legend, I love me some John Legend.

8. Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie, 2015 Academy Awards Oscars

Emily & Hannah:  In Saint Laurent: A black dress for the red carpet? Can sometimes look a little flat BUT the shear black sleeves add dimension, not to mention that 1930’s choker she is wearing, it was originally made for a duchess but girl can rock it!

Willi:I like that she went with black, it is very different from the whole white and light blue that most people are wearing on the carpet. I think that she looks very elegant, everything is so perfect! Also I can’t wait to see her kill it in Focus.

7. Kerry Washington

kerry washington

Emily & Hannah: In Miu miu: Kerry Washington is channeling her inner Olivia Pope, for those of you who don’t know, that is her character on Scandal.  White hats on people!

Willi:I am going to agree with whatever Emily and Hannah said. I like Kerry Washington in general and I think that she always looks incredible on the red carpet. It also reminds me that every time I see a commercial for Scandal I should really start to watch it. Maybe now I will get into it!

6. Jenna Dewan Tatum

channing tatum jenna dewan oscars 2015 01

Emily & Hannah: In Zuhair Murad. This is how you do it. She is the epitome of glamour, not to mention having Channing Tatum as you man would make any girl feel beautiful! She radiates beauty and glamour in this dress.

Willi: This is the first time I have ever been like, damn Jenna! Can we talk about her eye makeup? Like damn, they look so incredible with her makeup this time around. Jenna you killing it! Can’t wait to hear about your after party dance off with Channing because it is bound to happen.

5. Jessica Chastain

jessica chastain oscars 2015 03

Emily & Hannah: In Givenchy: This looks like it was tailored to her body. We rarely see her in this navy blue but it is stunning with her red hair. The necklace is subtle and classic. Everything about this is beautiful.

Willi: They said it all. Jessica looks absolutely flawless.

4. Reese Witherspoon

reese-witherspoon-oscars-2015-academy-awards

Emma & Hannah:  In Tom Ford. One word, ICONIC. This is something the ladies of the old glamour era of Hollywood would wear. The black detail is perfect. Again with the snowy whites and blues.

Willi: In my opinion Reese is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and can do no wrong. I do wish that she had some bangs or did something a bit different with her hair. She looks so glamorous though!

4. Jennifer Aniston

jennifer-aniston-oscars-2015-academy-awards

Emily & Hannah: In Versace: Her red carpet sexy streak continues and this dress does not disappoint! The color is perfect with her tan skin and dirty blonde hair. It’s too bad she was snubbed because this is a dress to win in! Stunning.

Willi: Can we just take a moment to remember that Jennifer Aniston is 46 years old. If I look even half as good as Jennifer Aniston I will be so happy! I love that she had some sheer material at the bottom of her dress. Again, like Reese, Jen can do no wrong in my book. I do love that she went with a more natural look for make up though!

3. Anna Kendrick

anna kendrick oscars red carpet 2015 01

Emily & Hannah: She looks stunning! The cut and style of the dress is beautiful, however the color is a little off. She has definitely started the pink trend of the night. Plus the girl is hysterical!

Willi: I totally disagree with my buddies on this one! I think that the color is perfect, the cut is perfect, everything is so perfect! Anna Kendrick is going to be around for a long time and she is going to rock every red carpet. Who would have thought that she would be the biggest thing to come out of Twilight, am I right?

2. Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana, 2015 Academy Awards Oscars

Emily & Hannah: To keep going with the pink trend, she is wearing a blush tone satin gown that is stunning against her skin. Not to mention she just had twin boys! Wonder Women!

Willi: I will literally just repeat the same thing that both Em & Hannah said. Zoe just gave birth to twins, I mean she is killing it! Good for Zoe!

1.  Rosamund Pike

rosamund pike

Emily & Hannah: In Givenchy: This is hands down the best dressed of the night! She took a major risk with the red shoe but it works perfectly! Everything from the neckline to the slit is amazing! This is her night style wise.  What a dress to win in, but we all know it’s going to Julianne Moore.

Willi: Rosamund killed it in Gone Girl, and she just slayed the red carpet. I will say that she deserves an Oscar tonight but I feel like it is already set in stone that Julianne Moore will win. Rosamund, you won the red carpet, that is almost as good, right?

Oscars 2015: Complete List of Nominees & My Predictions

If you follow my blog you may remember that I put together this list when the Grammys were happening. I am horrible at predictions but I always find it fun to see how many I get wrong, and how many I get right. Now, I got most of them wrong for the Grammys. For the Oscars though? I will probably get all of them wrong. I have seen most of the movies, but I also watch and follow all of the other awards, so I like to think I know a pattern when I see one.

So here is the deal, bold is who I think is going to win, and italics are who I would love to see win! So yeah, I am giving myself basically two guesses per section, I may get both guesses wrong though knowing my past.

I also did remove catagories that I don’t know anything about, I figured that was only fair.

Woman Crush Wednesday: Reese Witherspoon!

Since I usually have a Man Crush Monday, I figured that it was about damn time I went along with the trend of Woman Crush Wednesday! Why you ask? I will respond by saying, because I want to! Boom, end of conversation. There were many women I could have chosen, I had to think about all of them, Reese seemed to be the perfect fit for the first one ever. She is nominated for another Oscar, she is flawless, and she is one of my favorite actresses.

I have heard a lot of people hate on Reese due to her lack of taste in choosing movies over the past few years and I can’t disagree with them. No wanted to see ‘This Means War’ but ‘Wild’ is her big comeback movie. She isn’t wearing make up in most of the movie, plus she is playing such a raw and emotional character.

Since the 90’s Reese has been one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and that is a title that I don’t think will ever leave her. She seems to have a great personality, minus the whole getting arrested thing and asking the officer if he knew who she was, that’s not the point! The point is that she is one of America’s sweethearts.

So congrats on all your success but mostly being my first Woman Crush Wednesday, I hope you bask in the glow!
