Last night’s generally unremarkable episode of SNL peaked early when it took advantage of its proximity to Mother’s Day to do something kind of remarkable. As part of her opening monologue, guest host Reese Witherspoon declared that the show was going to mark the occasion by bringing each cast member out with his or her mother...and then forcing them to apologize for their childhood transgressions.
Reese Witherspoon has had an interesting time lately: the producer of Gone Girl, nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Wild, and the recent star of the not-so-funny Hot Pursuit. But Witherspoon is funny — she’s also immensely charming and versatile (obviously), and she knows how to light up a room. Unfortunately, she’s not really the star of this week’s SNL, suffering from the same fate that befell Scarlett Johansson in last week’s underwhelming episode. Throughout the bulk of the episode, Witherspoon is more like a supporting player than the star, and I’m growing concerned about how terrible these female-hosted episodes have been lately and what that says about SNL in general.
Smile Reese Witherspoon you’re on camera! The dash cam from the Reese and her husbands arresting police officer has emerged on the Internet. In the video from the arrest last month in Atlanta Reese drops some classic lines such as, "I'm a U.S. citizen. I am allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask."
Onetime Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon just gave birth to her third child a few months ago, but her body is back in fighting shape. She showed it off on the red carpet of the 2013 Oscars, wearing a slim, strapless black and cobalt blue column gown by Louis Vuitton, which was accented by a train.
REESE WITHERSPOON got married at her estate in Ojai, California on Saturday night. Her new husband is showbiz agent Jim Toth. He's 40 . . . Reese is 35. Reese and Jim started dating in January of 2010. They got engaged in December. This was probably one of the most star-studded weddings in quite some time.
