Reese Witherspoon Bounces Back

Reese Witherspoon Bounces Back

Reese Witherspoon has managed to bounce back and continue on with her career after ending a seven-year marriage with Ryan Phillippe.

Four Christmases, Reese‘s latest film, is a romantic comedy in which she and Vince Vaughn play a couple forced to spend the holiday with the families of their divorced parents.

“I just thought this was a different kind of Christmas movie,” the divorced mother of two says. “I’d never seen anyone do the idea of a blended family and how they have to go to a million different places, but I hear people complain about it constantly.”

Malinda Williams, one of boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal‘s co-stars in the film Nailed, tells OK!, “They’re both very intense actors in the way they work. I think they make a great couple.” Plus, she adds, both have their priorities straight. “Reese seemed very humble and down-to- earth – very grounded and normal.”

    Four Christmases looks BAD! I think I’ll wait for it to be on TV next year.

  • Kristen

    I think it looks funny – love Reese. She has great comedic timing.

  • Hater

    I would definitely do me some Reese!


    This is how you handle a divorce.

  • are you kidding

    What red hot career is that? You mean the one where she’s had 3 box office bombs in a row? And true love with Jake? He’s gay and their body language when they’re together shows how just how not in love they are. Jared, how much does Reese’s PR team pay you to feature this crap?

  • love them

    And how do you know what Jake’s sexuality is or what is real or fake, #6. My guess is you know nothing and you make yourself sound very stupid by saying that you do.

    Love Reese, Love Jake.

    4 Christmases looks like it’s going to be so funny. I think that baby scene is so hilarious because he seems like a jerk. I laugh every time I see that scene. I have always love Vince V in movies. I can’t wait. My friends and I are going to see it this week-end.
    I never paid any attention to Reese before but now I’m beginning to like her a lot. The more I hear her talk, the more I like her. I like what she said about her divorce. She is so mature about it and not disgustingly whinny like Jennifer Aniston is. Reese don’t seem to want a pity party. Now she is busy living her life. Beginning to love her.
    I’ll bet this move is going to be a big hit.

  • Jill*Ann

    On divorce: “There are things in my life that are hard to reconcile, like divorce. Sometimes it is very difficult to make sense of how it could possibly happen. Laying blame is so easy. I don’t have time for hate or negativity in my life. There’s no room for it. When you make wrong choices, you have to take responsibility for them: ‘What part of this do I own?’ I struggle to figure out what made me make those choices. All I can hope for is that I’ve learned something from it and won’t make the same choices again.”
    That’s what Reese had to say about her divorce. She sure can teach pathetic desperate Jennifer Aniston a thing or two. Jen took the easy pathetic way out. Like a spoil sick child Jen she blames someone else instead of looking at herself. That way she never moved on with her life. That’s why you know Jen in going into another divorce-She didn’t learn from her mistakes.
    I love Reese and I think she is going to be fine. I really hope her movie is a big success.

  • jenny

    Read the reviews. The movie is supposed to be really terrible. The most disappointing thing is that one reviewer said it totally lacked a holiday mood or spirit. I like my holiday movies to put me in a warm fuzzy mood. Like The Holiday, Love Actually even Fred Claus they weren’t great movies but they at least put you in a Christmas frame of mind.

  • Lari

    At least Reese sends her kids to school..

  • Ivana

    # 6 you look at J&R pictures like we all do…

    so how on earth you can know body language between this two, you watch picture… you can’t hear their voices and their smile… you can’t even felt what they going throw in that moment….

    And the thing that Jake is gay… i have my point of view… i think that people, who think that Jake is gay…. are gays, who simply can’t forgive him for choosing woman…
    Hey BBM was a just good movie:)))) nothing more..

  • bet

    I figur out loonies are going to bring jen in this woman thread.

    How many time this woman bring the subject about her divorce , million time .
    Even no media attack this woman about her divorce, no girlfreind of her ex husband keep reminding her in every interevew that she cheat on her husband. but this woman keep addressing her divorce in every of her intereview. Yet the loonies like to talk about jen who talk about her divorce one time at the biggining , but loonies love to complain about her. but the only time jen bring about the divorce is one time. yet loones love to attack jen.

  • Kristen

    I’m with you Ivana

    Sounds to me like #6 wishes that Jake was gay.

    # 13 – she really only started addressing question about her divorce. Up until then she made very few statements. None of which were negative. She and Ryan’s marriage may have ended painfully – but they both handled it with dignity and grace. And that is hard to come by – not just in Hollywood – but everywhere.

    Love her style

  • anonymous

    She has said some things about her divorce…in fact she’s using it to sell her movies…Did she really have an affair with her costar in Walk the Line…heard that was the real reason they split…Even Lamey says Reese knows how to use the media when she wanted that Oscar and played happy family with Ryan..then was over! Still think Reese and Jake are just good friends…that is why she says she doesn’t want to marry him…

  • Rachel

    I love Reese! She and Jake are adorable. I wish them all the luck in their relationship and her with her movie.

  • bet

    How she feel the pain of divorce, if she is already in serious relationhsip with in a short time.

  • dianel

    I think Reese is such a sweet person I’ll go and see this movie it sounds like it will be funny

  • Four Christmases is a piece of


    Some of the reviews:

    `Four Christmases’ is zero fun

    “[An] oddly misanthropic, occasionally amusing but thoroughly cheerless holiday attraction.”

    Hollywood Reporter
    “Four Christmases to deliver a quadruple dose of dysfunctional family hijinks to genuinely dispiriting results.”

    “Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Jon Voight, Mary Steenburgen and Vaughn’s Swingers chum John Favreau also star, but there’s more clever comedy being done by birthday-party clowns and teenagers dressed as Amy Winehouse for Halloween parties than this redemptive rom-com.”

  • ewwww

    Reese is dog ugly.

  • http://jj topbrit

    #9 she handled it so well because she was already involved with jake dumbass,what did she have to protest about

  • Ivana

    She maybe scare that her second marriage would finish like first one..
    She probably have lot of fears….. for example kids, how they will react on new daddy… it’s not simple…
    I think that Reese and Ryan marriage was over long ago…. but they tried because of kids, when Reese win Oscar… Ryan couldn’t stand jealousy and he find Abbie.. :)))

    Personally i don’t believed that Reese have an affair with costar..
    I think that her only relationship after Ryan was and still is Jake …

    Kirsten Thank you :-)

  • Career problems

    What top? LOL

    “Four Christmases” is Reese’s THIRD BAD MOVIE in a row – Rendition was bad, Penelope was a disaster.


    Reese Witherspoon needs her gay “boyfriend” so very much!

    How else would she be so “happy” and “on the top” after Ryan replaced her with a younger woman? LOL

    Reese is pathetic PR wh0re.

  • rosebud

    I don;t like Reese anymore—she has made some very poor choices and is a very very bad role model

  • Ivana

    My last post was answer to anonymous… :))))

  • Shameless

    Reese is making a fool of herself buy this over the top false advertising.

  • My Eyes, My Eyes!

    God, Reese is one ugly b!tch

  • love them

    What is phony, fake, dumbass and idiotic is some of the posters here.

    Reese and Jake seem like better people than you ever would be.


    There is no Reese and Jake.

    Just a lame showmance.

    “PAY ATTENTION MANNISTON – This is how you handle a divorce”

    Jen, learn from the pro!

    How hard is to find a GAY actor in Hollywood? Ha?

    It’s so easy to fake a little romance for paparazzi and tabloids just find the right gay guy.

    The best part – my Avon customers love it!

    @ Anonymous # 15

    It’s called a press junket. It’s part of any actor’s job.

    I have NEVER heard she had any affairs. Ryan however, was accused of MANY prior to Abbie.

  • Ivana

    Ryan even confess that he cheated Reese… i heard that he used to have some problem with drugs, but personally i don’t believe in that…
    he always have ” mama boy ” look even when he is serious … :)))

  • dannie

    Screw the pathetic haters.

    Both Reese and Jake are talented actors who seem like good people. No one is perfect and they sure don’t deserve the hatred they get.


    Living with someone like Reese must have been H E L L for Ryan.

    It doesn’t surprise me that Reese needs a fake boyfriend for PR, she used Ryan for PP long after their marriage was dead.


    … she used Ryan for PR long after their marriage was dead.

  • Reese is a phony

    Those who know Reese Witherspoon will tell you that she is not a good person.

    She is just good at pretending.

  • Nessa

    I love Reese, I think she is a real down to earth women. She is very mature about her divorce. I think this movie is going to be so funny.
    I wonder why jen aniston fans hate Reese. My guess is they want Reese movie to fail like jen’s movie is going to fail. Plus Jen fan’s hate any women that have kids.

  • se

    Hollywood represent a decadent society! It is a kind of guetho whose they are only clown of bad circus.
    Divorce is very bad for the families. It is the motive that lot of families became poor!
    Reese Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie can make their sex program in Hollywood studious and put horner in their husband only problem.
    It is only necessary find another man whose can sleep besides them in bed…
    For the must part of families in the world divorce means that mothers are alone with their children….because the man abandon them to support another women…
    Even if these mothers work, they become not enough money for themselves and their children!
    All these story about divorce and how all these §Pr&ostitutes§ find another men and abandon their children with Nannies is horrible!

  • reggie

    Hey Jakey boy, haven’t you seen the news? Reesy isn’t going to marry you. You are barking up the wrong tree. Wasting your valuable time and sperm for nothing. Drop her and find a woman who really wants you. Stop dithering. Or don’t you want to get married? Then the question is why? Is Chris in the way? LOL

  • Kristen

    You really are an unstable person. So just because a woman is divorced she should never have another relationship because she would be a prostitute. Would you stay with a man who cheated on you SEVERAL times? Have you ever been in a similiar situation. If not – then stop judging any divorced woman. I ama not defending Reese – I’m defending women. Your statements about women are ignorant, sad and rather disturbing.

    By the way, I’d rather leave my kids with a pack of dogs than with you

    Some odd comments from Witherspoon:

    Melbourne, Nov 25 : Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon revealed that the idea of working with real life beau Jake Gyllenhaal made her pick ‘Four Holidays’.

    “I usually take movies based on scripts and who I’ll be working with,” she says earnestly of her latest comedy, Four Holidays.

    “And the main reason I did this movie was to work with Jake,” Herald Sun quoted Resse, as saying.

    The ‘The Man In The Moon’ actress revealed that the flick is lighthearted comedy.

    “The main reason I wanted to make this movie was to work with Vince because he’s so funny and so great,” Reese said.

    “Jake is funny, too, Am I not talking about Jake? Jake, Jake, Jake,” she added.

    No dear, you’re talking about Vince V. Can’t you tell the difference between Jakey and Vince? Are you smoking something funny? Your grammar is off too. It should be “WHOM I’ll be working with” not “who”.

  • Todd

    These are Aniston fan’s for sure who attack any thing better than Jen. Pathetic lots they are.
    Reese is a beautiful women and from the pre-views it made me laugh and that’s good enough for me to go see it.

  • reggie

    Do others sense an estrangement between Jakey and Reese? She used to hop over to Europe to see him all the time. Recently she hasn’t hopped at all. And now she kinda makes fun of him. And points out pointedly that she isn’t about to marry anybody. So “take that” Jake and smoke it. I have the sense that the relationship isn’t going very well. Anybody else think the same?

  • reggie

    4Xmases has gotten lousy reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes where most reviews are posted, it has a 23% rating. That is only 23% of reviewers liked the movie. Looks like a bomb in the making. Gad, bad.

  • y

    her chin makes her look like a special child.

  • shelby

    Reggie, Reese has stated on all of her recent interviews that she is going to London over THanksgiving to promote her movie Four CHristmases. But in reality she is going to be with Jake as he is still in London promoting his own movie right now. She is NOT taking her kids along with her on this trip either.

  • Lauren

    who? oh yeah..
    the girl who’s dating Jake.
    Reese? is thought it was miss “I’m – too – blond – and – silly” ._.”
    god dammit, i want to kill her.
    Jake is doing mistakes, okay but this is WAY TOO MUCH.
    break up, honestly.
    this is for the best! i promise :]
