Nothing Is Sweeter Than Reese and Oprah Together at Last

30 August 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Reese Witherspoon is known for being a popular celebrity Bff (remember her trip to Napa, CA, with Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore?), and it looks like she's hit it off with yet another famous lady. This time, Reese hung out with none other than Oprah Winfrey! The two buddied up at the Telluride Film Festival on Friday, posing for pictures with friends amid the scenic backdrop of Telluride, Co. "Celebrating #WILDmovie . . . #sograteful #someonepinchme," she wrote in the caption of her Instagram with Oprah, Laura Dern, and Cheryl Strayed. Reese and Laura popped up at the festival to promote their new movie, Wild, which is inspired by Cheryl's bestselling memoir. It's just the latest stop in what has been a headline-grabbing Summer for the actress. On Wednesday, Reese donned her Legally Blonde ensemble to show support for a fan with cancer, and earlier this month, she slipped into her bikini »

Telluride: ‘Wild’ World Premiere Brings Tears And Oscar Talk For Reese Witherspoon

29 August 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Telluride Film Festival  got started with a bang this afternoon — with a special Patrons screening in front of Friday night’s official launch — as Fox Searchlight’s December release Wild  had its World Premiere and first-ever public screening. The best-selling nonfiction book by Cheryl Strayed about her hike across the 1,100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail has been turned into a beautifully crafted cinematic journey by director Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club). Reese Witherspoon, who also co-produced, delivers her best screen work since her Oscar-winning turn in Walk The Line, and this three-dimensional portrayal of a woman searching for herself — after a disastrous divorce, the death of her beloved mother (perfectly played by Laura Dern), sexual promiscuity, drugs and a stint on the streets — is certain to put her back in the thick of the Best Actress race this year. It’s a whale of a tale and a great role. »

8 Reasons It's Time to Let the Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston Feud Die

28 August 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's time, everyone. We know it's so easy to bring up what happened between Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston whenever anyone talks about them or writes about them. But, c'mon. This feud or rivalry or whatever you want to call it with Jen and Angelina needs to be dead and buried. Why? Glad you asked: 1. It's been nine years. Yep. It's been nine years since Brad and Jen divorced. As in almost a decade. Why are we still talking about something that happened nearly a decade ago? Well, we did just bring up Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch in 2005 because he was so in love with Katie Holmes. But that was for nostalgia's sake. Also, that was an insane »

Review: Alejandro G. Iñárritu's 'Birdman' opens Venice with a sure-fire Oscar bet

27 August 2014 2:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - Truth or dare? This is a game played by two characters in magnificently acidic metatextual comedy "Birdman." It's also the film as a three-word question. Truth or dare? Real stage actor or star? You can have your artistic integrity, or you can have a hit. You can go Method, or you can really fly. You can be Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton), or you can be Birdman (Riggan Thomson). Initially, "Birdman" poses as a trenchant critique of the seemingly endless parade of men in capes that is the summer blockbuster season (Michael Fassbender and Robert Downey Jr. are name-checked as fine actors currently otherwise occupied), but it's actually rather more nuanced than that. The values of the sober-minded art espoused by a poisonous critic (Lindsay Duncan) and the untrustworthy joys of escapist cinema are both probed and prodded in this film. It's impossible for a film featuring the nightmare »

No clarification on why Oprah was there, but does Oprah need an excuse to be in the movie or simply be around the movie constantly being excited about it? Oprah is beyond reasons. 

Epps even kissed the ring of Richard Pryors wife. The man is going to play this part.
