Happy 42nd Birthday To Reese Witherspoon.
I’ve liked Reese Witherspoon ever since The Man In The Moon back in 1991. I’ve even liked all her girly romcoms despite not being a girly romcom girl. She comes across as so wholesome & likable (which I’m sure some people find annoying). I do wish she’d find a different sort of role that would make Hollywood take her more seriously as an actress, though. She was very good in Walk The Line but it still feels like she’s somewhat ignored even though she has an Oscar. And I have to admit that I’ve not seen Wild (I just checked and it has disappeared from Netflix). Damn – I feel like that’s one I really should’ve seen before making this list. Seems like a more gritty role than usual?
Well, I’ll add Wild once I’ve seen it. And, of course, A Wrinkle In Time (released tomorrow in the UK – 4.2 rating on IMDb. Ouch!). Of all that I’ve seen (counting down from 19), these are My Top Ten Reese Witherspoon Movies:
18. Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde
17. American Psycho
16. This Means War
15. Little Nicky
14. Water For Elephants
13. Four Christmases
11. Monsters Vs. Aliens
9. TIE: Sweet Home Alabama & Just Like Heaven
Yep, I love Cruel Intentions. I don’t apologize. But I do apologize for Fear being way too high. It’s really shit but it’s a guilty pleasure. And I like that roller coaster scene…
Saw But Don’t Remember Well Enough To Include In List:
Twilight, How Do You Know
Some I’ve Not Seen:
Jack The Bear, Freeway, Overnight Delivery, Best Laid Plans, The Importance Of Being Earnest, Vanity Fair, Rendition, Devil’s Knot, The Good Life, Inherent Vice, Wild, Hot Pursuit, Home Again, A Wrinkle In Time
Part of me wonders if I liked the Just Like Heaven movie because I adore The Cure song.
I bloody love her! And yes, you do need to see Wild. It is excellent.
Yay! I actually wasn’t sure if she had many fans but it appears she does. I think she’s very likable. I’ll watch Wild sometime for sure. 🙂
I love Reese, she’s a beautiful and talented lady.
Agreed! Glad to see she has plenty of fans. 🙂
I’m a huge fan.
I like her too! Don’t feel bad. I enjoyed Fear also. LOL
Yay! Glad so many others like Reese. And that at least one person also liked Fear. Lol. 🙂
Haven’t seen it either, but her performance in Freeway is supposed to be a knockout, so you’re a big fan of hers, you should check it out.
Cool. Thanks for the tip! I’m curious about that one. Will check to see if it’s on any of the services. 🙂
I adore her! Have you watched Big Little Lies? If you haven’t, you really should. It’s very goid TV plus eventhough everyone’s praising Kidman, I thought Witherspoon was more nuanced.
Yep! Watched it after reading the book (which is much better). But when I heard Reese was cast, I was very happy as she was SO perfect for that role! Kidman was good but not at ALL what I pictured. Reese was the best. 🙂
Love Cruel Intentions!
Yay! Glad to hear from a fan. I love it too. 😁
