Reese Witherspoon Facts: 35 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About Lil' Spoon

5 December 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Believe it or not, Reese Witherspoon has been a leading lady for nearly 25 years.

After a string of starring roles while still just a teenager, Witherspoon truly broke out in "Pleasantville" (1998) as a 1990s high schooler transported to the '50s. It was her turn as the perky Elle Woods in "Legally Blonde" (2001), though, that proved the actress was here to stay. Since then, her career has only blossomed (Oscar, included), and this holiday season, the actress seeks salvation on a 1000-mile hike in the docudrama "Wild."

From her years spent in Germany to her favorite thing about being a mom, here are 35 things you (probably) don't know about Reese Witherspoon.

1. Reese Witherspoon was born March 22, 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana to John Draper Witherspoon Sr. and Mary Elizabeth Reese.

2. Her birth name is Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon.

3. Witherspoon's father was an otolaryngologist, while her mother was a professor of nursing at Vanderbilt University. »

How could The Hunger Games movie series be expanded?

3 December 2014 4:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Plans are apparently afoot for more The Hunger Games movies after Mockingjay - Part 2 hits cinemas in 2015. But where next can the story go?

We recently reported that The Hunger Games world might not be quite as finished as we thought when the final film of franchise is released in November 2015. That Lionsgate is reported to be having conversations about how to prolong the movie series.

But where could it go if it chooses to do that?

The stories themselves have already been expanded to a degree, with the film adaptations of Suzanne Collins' books looking beyond Katniss Everdeen’s perspective. While the novels saw only what Katniss saw, the films began investigating what was happening with other characters, like President Snow or Gale Hawthorne, while she was busy trying not to get killed in the arena.

21 November 2014 2:09 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Hard to believe, but coming into The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Francis Lawrence had only directed four other movies. Making his feature debut in 2005 with Constantine, Lawrence went on to tackle the adaptation of I Am Legend starring Will Smith, the 2011 drama Water For Elephants and, of course, 2013's Catching Fire, the second installment of the Hunger Games franchise. The strength of that film solidified Lawrence as the man who would see the series to the end with Mockingjay Part 1 »

Reese Witherspoon’s Wild Ride

3 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Reese Witherspoon has had a bumpy nine years since her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line (2005) led to a best actress win at the 2006 Academy Awards. Despite a few pitfalls, Witherspoon is on an uphill climb that could possibly lead straight to her second Oscar nomination for her role in Wild, director Jean-Marc Vallee’s adaption of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir.

Critics have praised Witherspoon’s performance of Strayed, a woman determined to overcome her personal challenges — drug use, divorce and grief — by hiking more than 1,000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail alone. Her gritty performance paired with Vallee’s directorial prowess (Dallas Buyers Club won Academy Awards for best actor and best supporting actor) may be the right recipe for Oscar success.

Prior to her role in Walk the Line, Witherspoon was well-known for her roles in romantic-comedies, such as Legally Blonde »

How Reese Witherspoon could end up with three Oscar nominations this year

12 August 2014 7:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Eight and a half years ago, Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar. It came for her leading performance as June Carter in James Mangold's Johnny Cash biopic "Walk the Line." But things fell off after that for a little while. Gavin Hood's "Tsotsi" follow-up, "Rendition," went nowhere with audiences or critics. James L. Brooks' "How Do You Know" stalled. Francis Lawrence's "Water for Elephants" didn't really move the needle. Holiday rom-com "Four Christmases" and spy caper "This Means War" completely bottomed out. And then early last year, that unfortunate Atlanta arrest incident. But all the while, the actress, who has virtually grown up in the film industry, has been priming the pump with a few projects that will make it to screens this year. At the end of the season, she could well end up with as many as three Oscar nominations. The stage has truly been set for a career turnaround. »

Production Begins on Gus Van Sant’s Sea Of Trees Starring Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, and Naomi Watts

30 July 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

"The McConaissance" continues as Gus Van Sant’s new project Sea of Trees starts shooting today.  As you may have guessed, the film stars Matthew McConaughey as well as Ken Watanabe and Naomi Watts.  Penned by Chris Sparling, the story follows a man who enters the “Suicidal Forest” at Mount Fuji with the intention of taking his own life.  When he is interrupted by a Japanese man who is having second thoughts about his own suicide, the two “begin a journey of reflection and survival.” This sounds exactly like the kind of film I feel Van Sant should be doing and it makes me glad that 50 Shades of Grey dalliance ended for him when it did.  Hit the jump for the full press release on Sea of Trees starting up.  The film will shoot on location in Massachusetts and Japan with no release date set as-of-yet. Here’s the press release: Bloom, »

Can ‘The Divide’ Do for We Tv What ‘Mad Men’ Did for AMC?

11 July 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Next week, We tv will premiere “The Divide,” marking the basic cabler first attempt at an original scripted series — a leap into its rebranding strategy to be less known for femme-focused programming.

Created by writer-director Richard Lagravenese (“Behind the Candelabra,” “Water for Elephants”) and “Scandal” actor Tony Goldwyn, the eight-episode series follows a case worker and a district attorney both struggling to maintain their morals in a corrupt and racist justice system where an inmate is behind bars for a crime he (maybe?) didn’t commit. (Goldwyn also directed two episodes during his off time from leading the free world on “Scandal.”) If this sounds more high-brow that what’s expected from We tv, that’s because it was a project originally workshopped for sister channel AMC.

At the channel’s Television Critics’ Assn. panel on Friday at the Beverly Hilton hotel, the creators and stars commented on this inevitable »
