The Hysterical Difference Between Matthew McConaughey And Reese Witherspoon

24 October 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she and Matthew McConaughey had hugely different lifestyles while filming 2012.s gritty Southern drama, Mud. And, to be honest, it sounds as if McConaughey.s diet and surroundings were both a lot healthier and less depressing than hers. According to Yahoo Movies, Witherspoon made her remarks at a tribute to the Oscar-winning 44-year-old actor that was conducted by American Cinematheque at the Beverly Hills Hilton earlier this week. She was joined by a cavalcade of other Hollywood actresses, each of whom regaled the crowd with a variety of stories that revolved around Matthew McConaughey.s peculiar, yet loveable, antics. But it was Witherspoon.s comments about shooting Mud that proved just how relaxed Matthew McConaughey can be when it comes to his roles. Reese Witherspoon explained that while filming the well received, Jeff Nichols-directed Mud, she had to stay in a motel that was »

The Oscar-winning actor collected the latest in his recent run of prestigious trophies when the American Cinematheque honored him at its annual award celebration Tuesday at L.A.'s Beverly Hilton Hotel, and an A-list contingent of his female costars - including Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Garner - turned out to pay tribute to (and occasional playfully roast) McConaughey.

Matthew McConaughey Gets A ‘Stellar’ Tribute From American Cinematheque

22 October 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

How ironic it was that American Cinematheque, this bastion of all things honoring the history of film, would choose to give Matthew McConaughey its highest honor at a warm, funny and revealing tribute last night at the Beverly Hilton. Because among other things, McConaughey revealed he had actually only even seen two movies — ever — before the age of 18:  King Kong and Orca. And though this non-cineaste didn’t specify which King Kong, I would be willing to bet it was the 1976 remake rather than the 1933 classic.

But as the evening proved, McConaughey — whom the star’s Interstellar director Christopher Nolan referenced as “the new Paul Newman” — more than meets the Cinematheque’s definition of this award for a distinguished mid-point career of excellence and contribution to cinema.

Of course there were many mentions of what is now known as the “McConaissance,” his recent spate of career-changing film choices beginning with The Lincoln Lawyer, »

Reese Witherspoon: Matthew McConaughey Has a "Two-Hour Face"

22 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Matthew McConaughey is one fine lookin' gentleman. Just ask Reese Witherspoon, his co-star in 2012's Mud. "He's handsome and he's got talent," Witherspoon told me last night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where McConaughey was honored with the 2014 American Cinematheque Award. "He's got what my friend calls a 'two-hour face'—you want to watch him for two hours. He might even have a 'six-hour face.' That hasn't been tested yet. Well, it has, hasn't it with True Detective? You could watch him all day." McConaughey's Interstellar co-star Jessica Chastain remembered the first time she saw the Dallas Buyers Club Oscar-winner on the big »

Matthew McConaughey defends rom-coms: 'Criticism is completely unfair'

22 October 2014 5:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew McConaughey has defended the romantic comedy genre.

The True Detective star said that criticism of rom-coms is "completely unfair".

"These things aren't easy," he told GQ. "What's hard is to make them look easy.

"Those kinds of movies are what they are. They get pooh-poohed by critics. They get pooh-poohed by actors themselves. And in a way I get it, but in other ways it's completely unfair.

"There's a buoyancy you need to make them work. I believe I gave them buoyancy. And some of the shoots were very difficult, with me trying to fight for the balls on the guy."

He continued: "What's a romantic comedy? Boy meets girl. They get together. Something happens. Girl takes off. Boy chases girl. They get back together. The end.

"A lot of times the male is somewhat emasculated, meaning he has to crawl back and say, 'I'm nothing without you. If you don't take me back, »

22 October 2014 4:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew McConaughey was honoured with the 28th American Cinematheque Award at the annual ceremony in Beverly Hills last night (October 21).

McConaughey was also joined by former on-screen love interests Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon. Current Interstellar co-stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and director Nolan were also on hand at the ceremony to support the star.

Nolan took to the stage at the event - hosted by Jimmy Kimmel - to praise McConaughy's talent, enthusing: "I'm not a believer in the 'McConaissance'.

"I think Matthew's success of late is the rest of us catching up to what he's been doing. I'm very proud to know him.

Christopher Nolan praises Matthew McConaughey's quest for truth

22 October 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — It was time for a victory lap for last year's Best Actor Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as the "Interstellar" star was honored by the American Cinematheque at the Beverly Hilton's famed International Ballroom Tuesday night. A roll call of the star's leading ladies was on hand to take part in the tribute, which closed with "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan doing the honors of presenting the hardware. Kate Hudson ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "Fool's Gold"), Anne Hathaway ("Interstellar"), Jennifer Garner ("Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," "Dallas Buyers Club") and Reese Witherspoon ("Mud") all took the stage at various moments throughout the evening to tell anecdotes and present clip packages from McConaughey's early years, his romantic comedy stretch, actioners, legal dramas and, of course, the "McConaissance" of late, as it's been dubbed. When Nolan had his turn, however, he bristled a bit at that moniker. "I'm not a believer in the McConaissance, »

Matthew McConaughey Defends the Romantic Comedy Genre

21 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Matthew McConaughey began receiving raves for a string of dramatic roles in films like “Mud,” “Killer Joe” and “Dallas Buyers Club,” there were many who praised the actor for turning his back on the romantic comedies that helped make him a star. McConaughey himself was not one of them.

“I love those movies,” he said in an interview with Variety in January, shortly before winning the Academy Award, praising hits like “The Wedding Planner” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” He even defended the ones that weren’t as well received. “ ‘Failure to Launch’ got panned, but I like it!”

McConaughey is well aware of the spin that others try to put on his career; that he abandoned easy roles and paychecks for darker parts. “The narrative that people keep wanting to get at is the then and now,” he said. “The then and now narrative »

Matthew McConaughey’s Stellar Year Topped with American Cinematheque Award

21 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After accepting the Academy Award for lead actor earlier this year, Matthew McConaughey isn’t done collecting accolades. He’ll be honored Oct. 21 with the 28th American Cinematheque Award.

When McConaughey accepted his Oscar in March, it marked the height of the actor’s transformation from romantic comedy staple to complex dramatic performer. But the directors who worked with the actor before and on the cusp of the McConaissance say that the spark has always been there.

Mark Waters, who worked with McConaughey during his long stretch of aw-shucks romantic roles, says the actor’s dark side was precisely what made him right for 2009’s “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.”

“I was interested in him because I liked his pure bad-boy side,” Waters says. “It may be the precursor to what he was eventually going to move toward, but there was something about the rebel in him and that aggressiveness.”

Matthew McConaughey defends romantic comedies; says they are hard to make

21 October 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Just a little over a year ago, Matthew McConaughey was a has-been in Hollywood. Despite the recent success of The Lincoln Lawyer and some critical acclaim for Mud, but his successly rebirth as a top tier leading man thanks to Dallas Buyers Club and True Detective was just on the cusp of becoming a reality. Back then, McConaughey was still relegated to being a romantic comedy leading man rather than considered the type of actor who would go on to star in Christopher Nolan's »

58th BFI London Film Festival Review – Wild (2014)

20 October 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wild, 2014.

Directed by Jean-Marc Valée.

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Gaby Hoffman, Thomas Sadoski, Brian Van Holt and W. Earl Brown.

Synopsis:

A chronicle of one woman’s 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.

After his Oscar nominated efforts for the superb Dallas Buyers Club, director Jean-Marc Vallée could have chosen pretty much anything as his next project. Courted by many more than Reese Witherspoon, it wouldn’t have been wholly surprising to have seen his name linked with bigger Hollywood projects, whether that had been a $150 million blockbuster, or indeed joining the universes Marvel and DC in the hope that he would help create the next in the ever-growing list of comic-books adaptations. But it was Wild that truly tickled the Canadian maestro, and you can see why.

Another beautifully directed film, Vallée is slowly becoming one of the best new talents in directing right now, »

The panel featured stories about breaking into acting at an early age and »
