It doesn’t yet have a release date, but allow me to make a prediction about the upcoming Atom Egoyan film ”Devil’s Knot,” about the now infamous West Memphis Three murder case — stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth will be on the short list of possible Oscar nominees. “Devil’s Knot” is based on the true events surrounding the West Memphis Three case, in which three teens were convicted of the murder of three children in the early-’90s in West Memphis, Arkansas, despite copious evidence that they were innocent. The young men, now adults, long maintained their innocence, but did not see have their convictions overturned and were not released from jail until 2011. I lovvvve Reese Witherspoon as a dramatic actress, especially when she has such fantastic material to work with. And director Atom Egoyan — who’s done a string of strange but genius movies — is an interesting choice to helm the film, but that makes me all the more interested in seeing it. As for Colin Firth? Bonus! Check out the trailer above. [NYMag.com]

We are so, so, soooo excited that author, advice giver, general badass, and The Frisky staff’s literary life coach (Tiny Beautiful Things is pretty much our bible around here) Cheryl Strayed‘s memoir, Wild, is being adapted into a movie. Earlier today, the film’s producer and star, Reese Witherspoon, posted this photo of herself decked out in Cheryl’s hiking outfit and hoisting the famously giant backpack she carried on the Pacific Crest Trail. Reese really does resemble Cheryl here, doesn’t she? Can’t wait to see the adventure play out on the big screen. [Reese Witherspoon on Who Say]
Reese Witherspoon’s style is typically kind of girlie and casual and very California, which I like, by the way, but I love when she takes risks. This outfit is one such example: all-black, save the totally buttoned up shit, I dig the kicky skirt and sexy boots and OMG that jacket. Perfect for fall and easy to recreate!

We love a good cocktail just as much as we love analyzing the inner workings of celebrities, based off the personality traits presented to us via Us Weekly, Billy Bush’s incisive commentary on “Access Hollywood,” and their one true gift to us plebes — their bodies of work. Maybe as you flip through a waterlogged InTouch, you wondered to yourself “What would Reese Witherspoon be if she were a drink?” Rest easy, friends. We’ve taken the legwork out of life’s complicated quandaries. Curious? Click through…
At first glance, Reese Witherspoon’s outfit is something I could imagine, say, Nancy Reagan wearing. The gold chain, the red accessories, it’s all rather conservative and polished and preppy, no? But then you factor in the sexy pumps, and the skinny cuffed jeans, and it’s got a certain bad girl vibe to it, like Sandy at the end of “Grease.” So yeah, Nancy Reagan + Sandy from “Grease” = one killer outfit, I guess. Find out how to get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
I have very specific neon associations, related to the rise and demise of electroclash music in the early aughts. (Don’t pretend like you weren’t also all up in the club in pointy hot pink kitten heels. I saw you!) So I still tend to shy away from neons — I can’t deal with the Ladytron flashbacks. Howevs, neon has been all over the place lately, as evidenced by the many celebs spotted proudly wearing bright, bold neon tones. Here we have (from left to right) Jennifer Garner, Paula Patton, Hilary Duff, and Reese Witherspoon, all adding a bit of electric brightness to their wardrobes. But who wore it best?
Reese Witherspoon has always been a fashion-conscious lady, but ever since her drunken arrest video was released, she’s been even more on top of her style game. Her preppy, polished outfits convey a message that I’m sure is very purposeful — “Hey, look how put together and professional and clearly not drunk I am!” — but hey, whatever the motivation, she looks fabulous. Click through to check out seven of her best recent outfits!
You didn’t know Reese Witherspoon had a twin did you? Oh wait, sorry, that’s the actress’s 13-year-old daughter Ava behind those shades, looking all movie star-esque. Give her another week and she’ll be taller than mom.

God, could Reese Witherspoon be any cuter?! The formerly drunk and disorderly star wore this bright and sunny outfit to an LA-area Whole Foods to pick up an extremely photogenic bouquet of yellow tulips. Want to steal Reese’s perky outfit for yourself? I found all the pieces, including her exact orange dress, which rings in at the decidedly non-celebrity price of $40 (yes, really). Read on for shopping details! Keep reading »
Reese Witherspoon chose to skip the “I went to Atlanta and all I got was arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct” T-shirt and opted to commemorate her recent arrest with a slightly more subtle memento: an Atlanta Police Department hat. Reese made the fashion statement for her much-photographed arrival at LAX, alongside husband Jim “I had nothing to do with that” Toth. What do you think of Reese’s choice of headwear? Is it a cheeky way to reference an unavoidable topic? Or does it strike you as a little tacky? [Photo: Splash]
