    Who the f*ck cares?

  • Happy Jacky

    Oh please not that fake smile hick again!

  • Shafterella Shoestein

    Many others deserved this for their TRUE contributions to the industry, not Witherspoon!

  • Maria

    Oh look, Reese bought herself an award to get some publicity and make people think she is relevant and has an interesting career. Yeah, it won’t help. She’s still a b*tchy, self centered, phony, mediocore actress who’s career is slipping.


    Fake Smug Phony B*tch! Lets talk about that!

  • InTheIndustry

    Just hmmmmm about this whole thing.

  • Pattycake

    Is this like a life time achievement award? Don’t people generally get this toward the end of their career?

  • uh

    @Pattycake: let’s hope this means the end of her career.

  • E Offline

    Her time has been up for a long time now!

  • Samina Kaja

    Kind of silly to give a Renaissance award to her when she hasn’t made a decent film since her Oscar win.

  • The Circles

    of Hollywood are saying that this is not Jim Toth’s child. They are also saying that Alexander Payne has come out of hiding and has been around her allot since her pregnancy. So could it be that what Hollywood is saying is true?

  • …..

    Alexander Payne is an enormous pompous douche bag him and Reese would be a perfect match !! VOM

  • Comatose

    Alexander Payne is gay. He’s known Reese for a long time.
    He was with Sandra Oh from Grey’s Anatomy, but they broke up because he was gay. After they broke up he came out.

    I agree that this award was bought and paid for. It’s just some publicity for her. Everyone knows her career is dead. Plus nobody can stand her. Most of the celebrities at her wedding were people who are clients of her husband.

  • …..

    He’s gay?? He’s such a douche bag seriously met him a few times (whether anyone believes it or not) he’s so rude and thinks he’s so wonderful he doesn’t get that no one cares NO ONE but a sycophant

  • Demitasse

    Dear Reese: No one cares.

  • ace11

  • ab

  • brenda

  • Dirkstar

    the golden ratio & THE MAGIC MOON
    at the same time!
    You are the one, you´re my golden ratiooooooooooo!
