Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Reese Witherspoon Knows Who She Is Now That She Has Kids

Reese Witherspoon ELLE WIH Nov '13 cover

November marks ELLE’s annual Women in Hollywood issue, honoring women who have made extraordinary contributions to the film industry this year. Icons Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz and Melissa McCarthy, alongside emerging star Shailene Woodley, look stunning in Versace, The Row, Marina Rinaldi and Calvin Klein. The icons opens up about their unique experiences as female leads in Hollywood, the women they love to watch, and their hopes for the future.

Check out the highlights via Elle below:

Reese Witherspoon, on what inspired her to begin producing movies:

“I started noticing a couple years ago that I wasn’t seeing women as the stars of movies. I’m seeing them as the guys’ girlfriends, or so-and-so’s wife. I just thought: God, if I don’t start buckling down and start producing some movies, what’s my daughter going to see in the movies?”

Reese Witherspoon, on how her children changed her life:

“Somebody was saying to me the other day, ‘Oh, people get less interesting when they have kids.’ I just don’t think that’s true. I feel like I was so confused before I had kids, I almost got in my own way. Having kids made me clearer about who I was as a woman. I just wanted to exhibit good qualities for my daughter. I was a little competitive before I had kids- probably really competitive, to be honest. It really made me let go of that.”

Melissa McCarthy ELLE WIH Nov '13 cover

Melissa McCarthy, on playing nontraditional female comedic leads:

“A lot of times, women have had all their tools taken away (in Hollywood comedies). It’s like you’re never inappropriate, you have the greatest job, you look great, your hair is amazing, and now go be funny. And it’s like, with what? You have to fall down for us to want to watch you get back up. And it’s like they never let you watch women fall down.”

Melissa McCarthy, on which comediennes she enjoys watching:

“I watch Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Veep and she is so good, because she is playing the world’s biggest asshole narcissist, and yet you can’t take your eyes off of her. In fact, you still strangely like her and almost want to hang with her.”

ELLE WIH Nov '13 Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz, reflecting on her Hollywood stardom:

“The concept of a ‘star’ will always sound foreign and surreal to me because growing up in my country, you’re an actor, not a star.”

Penelope Cruz, on the best piece of career advice she’s ever received:

“How important it is to learn to say no. You’re going to have to put a lot of your time into a project, and you have to know if it’s something you really feel connected with, because it’s not a job you can do like you press a button- no.”

Shailene Woodley ELLE WIH Nov '13 cover

Shailene Woodley, on staying true to herself in Hollywood:

“There’s nothing like walking into a meeting and people expecting me to shake hands, and you hug them. For me, a hug is to disregard all of that bullshit and be like, This is me, Shai. This is who I am. Now let’s talk about real situations. Let’s not talk about all this surface-level stuff.”

Shailene Woodley, on the next five years:

“I’m so young, and I’m single, and I just want to drift. I’m just going to be a drifter. I want to do something totally different before Insurgent [the second film in the Divergent trilogy]. Maybe I’ll work in a tea shop. Or live in Amsterdam. Or be a nanny. Life experience only helps us as actors. I need new experiences to draw upon.”

Reese Witherspoon…Busted!

rs_560x415-130421165248-560.jimreese.mug.cm.42113

You know we’re living in our last days when one of America’s Sweethearts gets arrested for drinking the Jesus juice and then hopping behind the wheel! When we found out, we were convinced someone had turned back the hands of time and that it was April Fool’s Day. We were convinced that Lindsay Lohan was up to no good when we heard about a celebrity being arrested for a DUI, but? Lo and behold, it’s Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon!
We’ll pause while you try to contain yourself.

The Oscar-winning actress and her husband, agent Jim Toth, were booked in Atlanta on Friday morning for DUI and disorderly conduct according to reports. Toth was the one arrested for driving across a double line, while Witherspoon was cited for disorderly conduct. Allegedly, Witherspoon tried to pull the celebrity card when stopped by the Atlanta police…

“Do you know my name?” You’re about to find out who I am!”

And so is the rest of the world! The two were released early that same morning and now Reese has been trying to clear her name and her reputation through the press. Reese was still able to attend the premiere of her movie Mud in New York, however, so clearly she did not let a little DUI take her away from her work. But what do you think, VIPers? Was Reese trying to get free and clear through celebrity or is this a misunderstanding of epic proportions?

Stay tuned!

Angelina To Retire From Acting?

I don’t know if it’s that I refuse to accept this or if I just don’t buy it. Either way, I cannot imagine a future where my favorite Hollywood actress (sit down, Meryl!) has just announced that in a few more years, there will be no more SteelTrap Thundercat on the big screen. Somewhere in a room filled with old Brad Pitt photos and Friends Emmys, Jennifer Aniston is stabbing her voodoo doll and laughing in delight. This is what America’s favorite thin person had to say on her alleged retirement…

“I think I’m going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years, anyway, too much to manage at home, I have enjoyed being an actress. I am so grateful to the job and I have had great experiences and I have even be able to tell stories and be a part of stories that mattered and I have done things for fun. I will do some films and I am so fortunate to have the job, it’s a really lucky profession to be a part of and I enjoy it. But if it went away tomorrow I would be very happy to be home with the children. I wake up in the morning as a mum and I turn on the news like everybody else and I see what’s happening and I want to be part of the world in a positive way.”

To this quote, I scream…AngieJo, get more nannies!! You cannot stop acting! Who’s going to play those action heroine parts? Certainly not Reese Witherspoon! Not Emma Stone! Not Rachel Jennifer Aniston! There’s only one actress out there that I can believe that – even at 115 pounds soaking wet – could kick my ass and make me like it! So to retirement I say to Jolie…

Just say NO!

Drew Barrymore Could Be Preggers


Is Drew Barrymore pregnant?

Drew Barrymore was spotted leaving her gynecologist a few weeks ago and so now the rumors continue to grow that something is growing inside of her that may be calling out “mama!” in a few months. Could it be, heauxz? Is there another generation of Barrymore about to pop out of that hole? Let the nepotism games begin!

New photos have recently surfaced that seem to confirm to me that Drew is indeed carrying a babything. All everyone is waiting for now is confirmation from the suddenly press-shy star, who has not released a statement.

Is this the new Hollywood way to announce a pregnancy? By not announcing it? Currently, Reese Witherspoon is rumored to have a bun in the over with her new husband and she ain’t spillin’ the beans about the frank that knocked her up either. One thing’s for certain is that we won’t have to wait long before their midsections start lying on them. There’s only so much baby a starlet can suck in. Plus, if they’re just fat, it’s Hollywood suicide anyway!

Reese Witherspoon wants to be BFF’s with Princess Kate

Reese Witherspoon stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote her new flick “This Means War” but more interesting, Reese chats about her experience meeting Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. And let’s just say that Witherspoon was smitten. Plus, Reese chats about her Chia Pets collection and Ellen gives her a special gift.

Check out the highlights and a clip from the show below.

ON MEETING PRINCESS KATE, THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE:

Reese: Somebody called me and said we’re having a really small fundraiser would you want to come over and meet the Prince and Princess? I was like, Yes. My husband just thought I was so dorky. He was like, why are you so excited? I must of tried on like six outfits. I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don’t know maybe we can be friends. So we went and it’s always funny. Whenever I am super excited about things, my husband calls it the double barrel. That’s when I smile so big I look like a child.

Ellen: You really do look happy (shows photo) You’re just beaming.

Reese: I was so excited to meet her. Y’all, she’s a princess.

Ellen: Was she nice? Do you think y’all will hang out?

Reese: I mean, I would like to hang out. I’m not sure she wants to hang out with me. I could see that happening.

Ellen: Was she down to earth?

Reese: She was really nice. She was lovely. She’s so composed. She seems like such a lady and I think it’s so nice now days to see someone with such nice composure and carries herself so beautifully.

Ellen: Well, that’s great that you got to meet her and have fun… Maybe you’ll hang out.

Reese: Maybe (looks to camera) Call me. Call me anytime.

Ellen: You can play with your Chia Pets together.

Reese Witherspoon is “embarrassed about” her $15-20 million per film earnings

Reese Witherspoon covers Elle magazine’s February 2012 issue looking rather seductive. Does this make anyone else kind of uncomfortable? I have always thought as Reese as the girl-next-door, you know, America’s Sweetheart…with emphasis on the word “sweetheart”, so why this sexy, just rolled out of bed hairstyle now? Why the thick goth-like eye shadow and writhing around on the beach? It doesn’t work for me, Reese. I was expecting a blond bob or gym-rat pony. Eh.

Anyways, check out highlights from the interview including how she met her now-husband Jim Toth and what she thinks about her womanly figure below.

Kind of. But oh what an unlikely foursome! Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth all met up at the 2nd annual Art Mere Art Pere event at the Smashbox Studios in Hollywood last night. And it was all for a good cause and to enjoy a few cocktails as well.
