Reese Witherspoon Plays a Makeup-Free Role in Wild

Almost two decades ago, a lady (Reese Witherspoon) started out on a hitchhiking tour in order to face the things that were troubling her inside. Her name was Cheryl and she was facing the challenges of drug addiction, a painful separation and the recent demise of her mother whom she loved more than life

See hot Photos of Reese Witherspoon below.

Reese Witherspoon plays the hitchhiker sans makeup or any ornamentation in the film adaptation of the book. The director tried to make the movie as close to reality as possible by removing certain objects and articles of civilization. 

Reese appears her rugged self without any lipstick or mascara and it is a very brutal film in its portrayal of a female in the raw. She was even refused a brush to straighten out her hair. That was the extent to which the film went in its closeness to nature.

As the crew shot the scenes of Reese facing the elements in the wild, it was a visceral experience alright. She was left to her own devices and had to literally tough it out against the rock solid reality of existence itself. 

“She went method with the hair and no makeup,” says director Jean-Marc Vallee. “We wanted to see Reese out there, not vain at all, not concerned with her image, and she went for it. Wait until you see her in the film. It’s a new Reese.”

It was an epic journey that Reese undertook in the film and it literally imitated the actual adventure of Cheryl. The real-life Cheryl was often available on set to guide Reese in the minor and major details of the whole drama that unfolded on the screen. 

The cameras were poised for the poses that Reese made during this documentary of sorts. From backpacking over uneven terrain to setting up a tent, the movie shows how one woman tried to come to terms with her inner anxieties and issues and managed to emerge from it all a transformed person. 

“The more we were shooting, the more the character, and Reese, got comfortable with Mother Nature, with the wilderness,” Vallee told EW.

Reese meanwhile got to get more in touch with Mother Nature in tooth and claw. She had never seen the Great Outdoors through such firsthand lenses. But now she has finished filming Wild and it is a living testimony to her perseverance and magnanimity as a human being.

Chelsea Handler thinks she’s A-list, she’s ‘setting up a clique of power women’


Sandra Bullock turned 50 years old over the weekend. She celebrated with a big bash that included Chelsea Handler. Sandra and Chelsea have been friends for a few years, I guess. Sandra has been on Chelsea Lately, and Chelsea sucked up to Sandy at Sandy’s hand- and footprint ceremony last year. Personally, I always thought Sandy was too smart to really buddy up to Chelsea in a big way, but I bought the idea that they were “Hollywood friends” in that they share the same social group ...

Charlize Theron rolled her eyes & said ‘Oh my God’ when Tia Mowry said ‘hi’


I don’t have an opinion of Tia Mowry. I think I’ve seen her interviewed before and she seems like a nice person. I guess she’s sort of B-list or C-list, but she owns it. So, Tia Mowry spoke to In Touch Weekly about a recent A-list celebrity encounter she had and her story is SO FUNNY. The celebrity encounter? Charlize Theron.
