America’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon is featured on the cover of the October issue of “Vogue”. Inside, she talks about “Gone Girl”, her son Tennessee and her career.
On the topic of why she didn’t play the role of Amy in “Gone Girl”, she said that the director wanted someone who is “cool and unapproachable” for the part. She said, “What I am, I’m not that.”
When speaking of her two-year-old son Tennessee, she said, “He’s like the blond version of my husband. He’s so pretty. The older he gets, the more and more he looks like him. So cute.”
She also talked about how she was included on the Forbes list of actors and actresses who aren’t worth their paychecks. To that she said, “And there I was thinking I was reading about Ben Stiller! Thank God their articles are so long. I was on page six. Nobody can have got that far.”
Lastly, she talked about rebooting her career. She said, “It’s not that the roles dried up. They just weren’t as dynamic or as interesting as anything I felt I could do.”
She said that one A-list director refused to see her for a role because he said she was too “southern and sweet and huge”. She said, “I was like, all right, back to the drawing board.’ When people underestimate me, it’s actually a comfortable place for me. ‘Oh that’s what you think I am; well, no, I’m not.’ I’m a complex human being. I have many different shades.”

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have already secured their marriage license, so we know that they are going to be married very soon. Apparently, George and Amal have invited “Vogue” Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour to the celebrations and she will be covering the nuptials for a spread in the fashion bible.
Anna Wintour will be one of the select guests invited to the nuptials of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin in Italy next month. Sources said the Vogue editor-in-chief will be attending the Clooney wedding, even though it is expected to take place during the throes of the European fashion shows in late September.
We’re also told the Clooney/Alamuddin wedding will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Condé Nast fashion bible. “She wouldn’t go there and not cover it,” our source tells us.
Alamuddin, we’re told, is expected to wear a gown designed by Wintour’s close friend Oscar de la Renta. A source explained that not only would Wintour want to feature the beautiful Lebanese lawyer in her wedding gown, “she and Oscar are such good friends and [she’d] want to give him some attention.”
On Thursday, WWD reported the groom will wear Armani to get hitched, and that an entire team of designers flew to Clooney’s home in Laglio, Italy, to do fittings with the star and male attendants in his wedding party.
Clooney and Alamuddin are said to be having a small and intimate ceremony, but will have several parties before and after. “They’re going to have top security, but include a really small group. Very intimate, and mostly family,” our source said.
Who else thinks that Amal shouldn’t wear Oscar de la Renta? It just doesn’t seem like her type of wedding dress….it doesn’t appear to fit in with whatever style she is trying to achieve in her every day life. What do you think?

Beyonce covers the May issue of Vogue UK, and today we’re getting our first look at the pictures! I like the cover (enough), but the other two pictures are really rather boring for Vogue, aren’t they?
In the interview, Beyonce opens up about being a feminist, Mrs. Carter and a mother. Here are some clips:
Beyonce a feminist? “That word can be very extreme… But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman. If you’re attractive then you can’t be sexy, and you can’t be intelligent? What is all of that?…”
On being called Mrs. Carter: “I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept. But I’m happily married. I love my husband. I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do.’ The purpose of my body became completely different.”
On motherhood: “I definitely want my daughter to have goals and drive and passion – it has to be a balance. I hope she figures it out. Whatever makes her happy, I’m there. I do feel like I’m going to be honest with my daughter.”
I think Beyonce comes off as a super feminist. Doesn’t she? I mean I don’t think that’s necessarily a horrible thing, but what’s different about a modern-day feminist vs. a plain ol’ feminist? Food for thought.
