'Iron Man 3' hit theaters today, and since the film stars Gwyneth Paltrow, the conversation naturally turns once again to why so many people hate her, inspiring some to defend her much like we've done for Anne Hathaway in the past. And with Reese Witherspoon's recent arrest video made public, the jokes about her personal life just keep coming -- but why don't we ever have to defend male celebrities?
It's like 'Stand By Me' for a new generation.
At this point, we're starting to understand that all one needs to do to sell a pilot these days is to pick any work of classic literature, chop words off the title, and set it in the modern day. 'Alice in Wonderland' becomes 'Wunderland,' even Green Arrow comics become 'Arrow,' so what's the latest hack n' slash adaptation coming to The CW? Why, an adaptation of Charles Dickens' 'Great Expectations' of course, courtesy of Reese Witherspoon! Guess which word they chop off!
As if we needed another self-help book adaptation after 'What to Expect When You're Expecting.' But this one somehow already sounds worse -- the best-selling book 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus' by John Gray is getting its own film, starring Reese Witherspoon, and it just picked up a director... which means it's really happening.
Reese Witherspoon turns 36 today, but it seems her own birthday isn't what's foremost on her mind right now. Friends (or should we say, "tattletales") have been blabbing all over the place that the actress, who married Hollywood agent Jim Toth last spring, is pregnant with her third child.
