“Reese Witherspoon’s career is a perfect example of an actress flourishing in today’s world,” American Cinematheque chairman Rick Nicita said a statement. “She has refused to be limited to only certain types of roles and has continued to impress with her varied choices, ranging from smaller roles in dramas such as Mud to a tour-de-force, Oscar-nominated performance last year in Wild. She is an active and successful movie producer who is moving her career forward both behind and in front of the camera. The most appropriate role for Reese Witherspoon today is role model.”
The American Cinematheque Award is typically awarded to an “extraordinary filmmaker in the entertainment industry, who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion picture” and the ceremony is one of the organization’s biggest fundrasiers.
12 Things Reese Can’t Live Without
The actress shares with Elle Decor, some of the inspiration behind her up-and-coming lifestyle brand, Draper James. Check out!
For actress Reese Witherspoon, the idea of creating a lifestyle brand began with her new Nashville home. “I started looking around for little things that reminded me of Southern traditions, like monogrammed napkins and silver julep cups,” says the Hollywood A-lister. When she couldn’t find the perfect resource, she launched her own. Witherspoon’s new label, Draper James, provides one-stop shopping for her modern take on genteel Southern style, from eyelet dresses and pearl earrings to a sterling magnolia-shaped bowl by a Charleston silversmith. This fall, she’ll open a Draper James boutique in Nashville designed by Mark D. Sikes, who is also helping with her house. “We are aiming for that mix of traditional and contemporary that says, ‘I love where I am from, but I have also traveled the world,'” she says.
“The city has a sense of ease. It’s where I grew up, so I’m biased.”

Reese to adapt “Napkin Notes” Memoir for the Screen
Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea’s Pacific Standard banner is developing a film adaptation for New Line of Garth Callaghan’s memoir Napkin Notes: Make Lunch Meaningful, Life Will Follow.
Witherspoon and Papandrea will produce “Napkin Notes,” which New Line optioned last September. Mike Binder, whose credits include “Black or White,” “Reign Over Me” and “The Upside of Anger,” has come on to adapt the script. Toby Emmerich, Andrea Johnston and Richard Brener are overseeing for New Line.
Callaghan’s book, published by HarperCollins, details how he began writing short inspirational notes on napkins to put in his daughter Emma’s lunchbox daily to connect with his daughter. The practice took on far more significance after Callaghan was diagnosed first with kidney cancer and subsequently received four other cancer diagnoses.
“Napkin Notes” is Pacific Standard’s ninth development project. Witherspoon and Papandea formed Pacific Standard in 2012 in order to remedy the absence of movies with female protagonists. They have since produced “Wild,” “Gone Girl” and “Hot Pursuit.”
The banner has been developing Jessica Knoll’s “Luckiest Girl Alive” at Lionsgate, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon’s “Ashley’s War” at Fox 2000, S.J. Watson’s thriller novel “Second Life” at Warner Bros. and Maureen Sherry Klinsky’s upcoming novel “Opening Belle” with an eye to Witherspoon starring in the Wall Street comedy. Pacfiic Standard is also developing an adaptation of the novel “Big Little Lies,” “The Engagements,” “Pennyroyal’s Princess Boot Camp” and “The Outliers.”
