Reese Witherspoon’s production company Pacific Standard produced two of the biggest hits of 2014 and both are getting Oscar attention. Things couldn’t be better for this A list Hollywood star and mother of three.
Reese and partner Bruna Papandrea started Pacific Standard only four years and have been very selective in choosing the movies they produce and well this year they were right on the money with Gone Girl and Wild. On her choices, “I suddenly started to realize that scripts were not that great, particularly for women.”
Not only does Reese produce Wild but she is the star of the movie. Wild is based on Cheryl Strayed’s best selling book and inspiring real life story about her journey and hike on the Pacific Crest Trail after losing her mom to cancer. And now Reese stars in the latest comedy alongside Sofia Vergara in Hot Pursuit.
