I’ve got my hands on a copy of the This Means War DVD this weekend, and have added screencaptures from the extras for you. Unfortunately there were only 3 deleted scenes and 3 alternate endings on it. The deleted scenes were funny – especially the one where Lauren freaks out – but you can see why they were cut. The alternate endings were … well, better than the actual ending, in my opinion!! I’m still disappointed by who she chose, and just hope that Reese works with the other guy again in the future Still, enough of my opinion, here are the screencaptures …
Reese Witherspoon: “My full-time job is being a mother”
Being pregnant was no obstacle for Reese Witherspoon as far as Cannes is concerned. Though she’s five months along in her pregnancy, Reese was her typically bright and energetic self when she appeared at the fabled French film festival to promote her new film, MUD, starring Matthew McConaughey as a fugitive on the run looking to meet up with his long lost love (Witherspoon). Along the way, he meets up with two young boys anxious to learn about the world. Witherspoon posed playfully with McConaughey along the Croisette, signed autographs for fans, and generally looked radiant while her husband/agent/prospective father of her child Jim Toth was at her side. “This is such a beautiful and happy time in my life and I was very pleased to be able to come to Cannes and support the film,” Witherspoon said. “I play a kind of messed-up country girl in the film but I loved the fact that the story was set in the place where I grew up and was about these two boys learning about the world. I remember what it was like riding dirt bikes and getting into mischief with my brother, and I thought it was a beautiful story that took me back home in a way.”
The 36-year-old Witherspoon was sporting a serious baby bump in her black Versace dress and pink stilettos as she was seen making the rounds of various receptions at the prestigious film festival.
Witherspoon grew up as a part of an affluent family in Tennessee. Her father was distinguished surgeon and her mother was a top surgical nurse and later teaching nurse. She was famously married to actor Ryan Philippe for nine years until their 2008. She admits to having suffered for a time until meeting Hollywood agent Jim Toth two years ago. They were married in March of last year. She has two children from her former marriage to Ryan Philippe, Ava, 12, and Deacon, 9.
Today’s update is over 1,000 gorgeous HD screencaptures from This Means War! Reese looked so pretty in it – I loved her wardrobe and her hair – so there are lots of great shots in here. The movie itself was entertaining and had some funny moments, but I wouldn’t say it’s one of Reese’s best, and definitely not one of her best performances. My main problem with the film was the ending – I thought it was completely the wrong ending, and didn’t make sense, as she had much better chemistry with the other “product” (as Trish called them!). Still, I’d recommend the movie if you’re looking for some light fun, as Reese is as watchable as always.
I’ll add screencaps from any DVD extras soon. But now, hop on over to the Gallery to enjoy the pretty new HD film screencaps!
Examiner.com have posted a new interview with Chris Pine to promote the DVD release of This Means War. Here are the bits in which he mentions our Reese:
JORGE CARREON: Still, how does it feel play a character that embodies a certain amount of charm and power like FDR?
CHRIS PINE: Kind of ridiculous. [LAUGHS] I’ve never thought of myself as that kind of guy, but it’s fun to do. The opportunity that (director) McG gave me in This Means War was to really go full-tilt and really explore the comedy side and have some fun with action. It’s important not to be pigeonholed and, of course, Hollywood does like to fit everybody into these re-made things. But I think any actor that enjoys what they do likes to do different things and will search out different ways to express themselves. Before I took on this role, I met with Reese and we sat down and had a long lunch. From one meeting, I knew that I would love to spend time with this lady. Romantic stuff is always so much easier when you get to sit across from someone that you actually like. I loved Reese and I said, “God, this is going to easy-peasy trying to fall in love with a woman whom I as a human being already love.”
CARREON: Nice to see the women caught in War are not your usual rom com gals?
PINE: What’s fun about Reese and Chelsea is that they’re empowered women. Chelsea speaks like the gruffest dude on the planet. And you have Reese who plays this woman who’s very powerful and very successful in her chosen field. I think the women represented in this field are like you do not want to mess with these women at all! Chelsea will fu*k some shi* up! [LAUGHS]
‘Red Tails’, ‘This Means War’ Top Home Entertainment Charts
The Fox war drama took the top spot, while the Reese Witherspoon romantic comedy came in second during a week in which four new releases reigned supreme.
Four new releases debuted in the four top spots on both national sales charts the week ending May 27.
The four, with box office earnings of between $19 million and $55 million, also finished in the same order on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.
The roll call: 20th Century Fox’s Red Tails ($49.9 million), a war drama about a crew of African American pilots during World War II, debuted at No. 1. The film, which stars Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard, generated 48% of its first-week unit sales from Blu-ray Disc.

O Omelete esteve no Rio de Janeiro para entrevistar a atriz Reese Witherspoon, que veio ao Brasil divulgar Guerra É Guerra. Ela fala da sua participação na comédia romântica de ação, do seu Oscar, de seus projetos futuros e do que anda lendo ultimamente, entre outras curiosidades.
