- Reported, February 02, 2013



 

Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon is professionally known as Reese Witherspoon, is an American actress, film producer, and television producer. Witherspoon landed her first feature role as the female lead in the film The Man in the Moon in 1991; later that year she made her television acting debut, in the cable movie Wildflower. In 1996, Witherspoon appeared in Freeway and followed that appearance with roles in three major 1998 films: Overnight Delivery, Pleasantville and Twilight. The following year, Witherspoon appeared in the critically acclaimed Election, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.

Witherspoon's upcoming films signal a departure from the love triangle theme. In September 2011, nearly a year after beginning work on This Means War, Witherspoon began filming Jeff Nichols's coming-of-age drama Mud in Arkansas. Witherspoon plays the supporting role of Juniper, the former girlfriend of a fugitive (Matthew McConaughey), who enlists two local boys to help him escape capture and rekindle his romance with Witherspoon's character. Mud premiered in May 2012 in competition for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, but did not win. The movie had its American debut at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2013, and will have a limited release in selected theaters on April 26, 2013.

Witherspoon's next film will be Atom Egoyan's same-named adaptation of the true crime book Devil's Knot, which examines the controversial case of the West Memphis Three. Like Mud, the story is set in Arkansas. Witherspoon plays Pam Hobbs, the mother of one of three young murder victims. In an interview subsequent to Witherspoon's casting in the film, Egoyan noted that although the role requires "an emotionally loaded journey", he "met with Reese, and...talked at length about the project, and she's eager to take on the challenge". The movie was shot in Georgia in June and July 2012. Witherspoon was pregnant with her third child during filming.

Numerous other projects have been announced, including the Disney film Wish List, to be written by Glenn Berger and Jonathan Aibel and directed by Bridesmaids helmer Paul Feig, and an adaptation of the self-help book, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. Witherspoon is also set to jointly star in and produce a number of movies under her Pacific Standard banner, including the comedy-drama Rule #1, a film based on Cheryl Strayed's memoir Wild, a film version of upcoming children's book series Pennyroyal's Princess Boot Camp, the raunchy comedy Who Invited Her, and the comedy The Beard. She is also set to produce, but not star in, a film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl.

Witherspoon received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on December 1, 2010, at 6262 Hollywood Blvd. She became a mum again just four months ago when she welcomed her son Tennessee into the world.
