Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Elijah Wood + More!
JENNIFER GARNER SAYS ‘ALL WOMEN IN THIS TOWN OWE A DEBT OF GRATITUDE’ TO REESE WITHERSPOON FOR HER PRODUCTION COMPANY: Jennifer Garner spoke with The Hollywood Reporter at the premiere for her new Apple TV+ show The Last Thing He Told Me. Garner executive produced the show alongside Reese Witherspoon, and shared that she’s been getting more involved behind-the-scenes in recent years thanks to the Legally Blonde star. “Honestly, Reese is behind that, she has really pushed me. She said to me a few years ago, ‘Nobody is sitting around thinking, what can I shoot in L.A. that’s going to have a 50-year-old woman in it?’ She’s like, ‘You’ve got to create your own stuff,'” Garner said. “All women in this town owe a debt of gratitude to Reese.”
ELIJAH WOOD COMMENTS ON NEW ‘LORD OF THE RINGS’ MOVIES: Elijah Wood told GQ in a recent interview that he’s “fascinated” and “surprised” by Warner Bros. announcing the development of more Lord of the Rings movies. “Obviously at the core of that, is a desire to make a lot of money,” he said. “It’s not that a bunch of executives are like, ‘Let’s make really awesome art.’ And, again, not begrudging anybody because, of course, it is commerce. But great art can come from commerce. So those two things are not mutually exclusive.” Wood added that Peter Jackson‘s trilogy “came out of a passion for these books and wanting to see them realized,” and he hopes that the new movies will be made “with reverence for Tolkien’s material and enthusiasm to explore it.”
