Reese Witherspoon’s Parents Banned Her from Hollywood

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Features,

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon's parents banned her from moving to Hollywood because it is "where crazy people live."

The Walk the Line star first started acting in Tennessee when she was 12 and quickly found herself getting cast in more and more parts, but her parents - who are both medical professionals - were wary of her pursuing it as a career while she was still a teenager. Speaking at a Young Women's Conference held at Brentwood School in Los Angeles this weekend, she said, "I started doing commercials when I was 12. One day there was an advert in the paper that said, 'Do you want to be in a movie?' I was like, 'Heck yeah I want to be in a movie!' I grew up in Nashville, they're not making a lot of movies there. My dad's a doctor and my mom is a professor of pediatric nursing. So I thought I was going to be a doctor. I was sure I was going to be. And then the universe just showed me this different possibility. Thank God my parents did this, but they told me I had to stay in school. I was allowed to work in the summers but I couldn't work in the school year. They said, 'You're not moving to California, that's where crazy people live.'"

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Weddings, Rumors,

Justin Theroux and Jennifer AnistonJennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are reportedly planning two weddings. Friends of the couple say they plan to celebrate their marriage in both New York and California, with "his and hers" events.

"Justin grew up in New York, most of his family are on the East Coast, so rumor is that after 'Jen's wedding' in California, there will be something in New York. There's certainly going to be a wedding party on the East Coast. It might not even be until the summer, but Justin has taken charge of his side of the organization and is really getting into it. He's arranging live music and the theme is going to be very rock 'n' roll," a source said.

While Justin, 41, is organizing a party, 44-year-old Jennifer's ceremony is likely to be more romantic and chilled out. "Jen wants it to be really relaxed and quite classic. it will be traditional," another source said.

The pair are also thought to have agreed to divide their time between the East and the West coast once they are married. "Jen knows how much Justin misses New York. So she's conceded that once they're married they can buy something there," one source added.

San Andreas FaultThe southern end of the 800 mile San Andreas Fault in California is currently being wired so that scientists will know when “the big one” hits. Bill Curtis, a technician with the U.S. Geological Survey, says that even the “smallest little bump shows up there.” Eleven stations will be set up with each having two sensors that measure speed and acceleration. This project certainly came at the right time because of the 250 small tremors that recently struck. All were picked up by stations on the east shore of the Salton Sea. All told, there is a network of 300 stations across the state.

Hanks is one of the executive producers of , a scripted series which showcases a family of polygamists (who are also Mormon). TLC did the same thing, only theirs was a reality show - and never quite managed the success HBO’s project has found.

Text Messaging While Driving Verboten in CA

Text MessagingThe Governator signed a bill in July that requires Californians to use hands free devices when driving and using a cell phone. He has now gone one step further by banning text messaging while driving. The SB28 makes drivers keep their “hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road,” Schwarzenegger said in a written statement. Other states have already adopted the law and considering the statistics about how dangerous the practice is, we hope they all do.
