Reese in a tent and a new rep
Well this kinda slipped under the radar...
But first - Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth were in Austin this weekend for Matthew McConaughey’s wedding. They recently worked together on Mud. Did Reese sleep in one of the tents and use a luxury portable toilet? Who gives a sh-t about the wedding menu? There are other more important details I wish these people would provide.
So on March 21, Us Weekly broke the story that Reese was pregnant. A year ago, Reese had sold her wedding photos to PEOPLE. That it was Us that had the exclusive was surprising - if Reese were to make that announcement, it seemed very unlikely that she’d go to them before going to the publication that has always had a great relationship with her.
I wrote at the time - click here for a refresher - that I’d heard from sources that she’d been considering new representation. Nanci Ryder has repped Reese for a long time...
And now, it turns out her publicist is Meredith O’Sullivan. Some of O’Sullivan’s other clients include Halle Berry, Demi Moore, James McAvoy, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Nicole Kidman, Rachel McAdams, Russell Brand, Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Seacrest, Sam Worthington, Stephen Moyer, and Will Smith.
In February, This Means War underwhelmed critically and commercially. She’s had few professional wins since winning the Oscar. Her baby news was handled awkwardly. Now she has a new PR team. Someone’s working on a new game.
