In this interview Reese talks about How do you know and tells us about a weird date that she has gone. Reese also talks about aging in her carrer like her character in the new film. Read the article and see:

How do you know it’s not working? Ask Reese Witherspoon, who goes on the date from hell in “How Do You Know.”

In real life, she says, “once I went on a blind date and he corrected my grammar. I knew in the first 10 minutes that the date was over.”

In the new romantic comedy, Witherspoon plays an athlete who must chose between two suitors played by Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson.

Q. What was it like to play a more non-sentimental woman who is confused about love?

A. It was interesting. I’ve done a lot of comedies where the woman talks about the man. She runs around going, “What should I do?” She cries to her girlfriends about love. The woman I play in this movie has a hard time conveying her own emotions. She doesn’t even really want to talk about things. She says to her boyfriend, played by Owen Wilson, “If I wake up in the middle of the night crying, just ignore me.” No woman would say that in real life to her boyfriend! I usually play more verbal characters. This woman is more internal.

Q. You play a woman who is not that interested in settling down and getting married. Can you relate?

A. I have a lot of friends like that. This role was written so beautifully. I love that she’s not afraid to be honest about not wanting what other women want. Obviously, it’s not like me. I have two kids and a very settled-down life.

Q. Your softball player character must leave the sports biz because she’s getting older. Ever worry about aging in Hollywood?

A. It’s a parallel to being an actor. As a woman, we have a time. It’s our time to work, we work a lot, and then hopefully you shift and become the Meryl Streeps or Diane Keatons of this business. I do know actresses have a shelf life and an expiration date.


How Do You Know, Interviews

Watch the interview below!

“I literally think I look bad in every picture,” she confided on Chelsea Lately tonight, enjoying a reunion of sorts with her This Means War costar, Chelsea Handler.

“I don’t know, who feels good looking at themselves?” the Oscar winner wondered, acknowledging thatalso she hates watching herself on film. “Nobody, right? It’s torture. Why would you want to watch yourself being stupid and pretending to be somebody else?”

You that haven´t watched How Do You Know film, can read some reviews here. And for you who have seen, may give your vote for the movie too. It has too many reviews so I selected only two. How Do You Know boasts a quartet of likeable leads — and they deserve better than this glib, overlong misfire from writer/director James L. Brooks. And you can read the complete reviews clicking here.

Keith Cohen:

Brooks seems to have lost touch with reality and has clearly run out of ideas. The boring story does a poor job of creating a romantic triangle. It also fails as a comedy, generating few laughs.

The screenplay would have been worked better on the stage since the scenes fit the format of separate acts in a play. The movie is void of any effervescence and doesn’t have the forward momentum that holds your interest. Witherspoon is a real cutie who lights up the room with her mere presence, but is woefully miscast as a female jock. Rudd tries to inject some humor. Witherspoon and Rudd deserve to be together in a better movie. Wilson just wants to have fun and could play this role in his sleep. Nicholson acts like he is making a guest appearance on a talk show.

Dana Stevens:

How Do You Know definitely falls into the latter category, in the grand James L. Brooks style. Primarily known as a creator of classic television (The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Simpsons—do I really need to adduce further credits here?), Brooks has made only six movies in his long career, some good (Broadcast News, Terms of Endearment), some lousy (Spanglish). But all of them have shared a certain generosity of spirit, featuring neurotic, long-winded characters who are allowed to speak their piece even if it slows down the plot. When you remember a James L. Brooks movie, what comes to mind are the speeches: Albert Brooks in Broadcast News describing the many disguises of the devil to Holly Hunter, or Helen Hunt in As Good As It Gets patiently and compassionately explaining to Jack Nicholson why he’s way too crazy to get involved with. The fact that her character ends up with him anyway is one of that odd movie’s many weaknesses. That romantic ending in the bakery still makes me mad.


How Do You Know, Movies, Reviews

A truly great romantic comedy is hard to come by these days. All too often we’re subjected to tired cliches, overused personality types, and slapstick comedy in the place of a predictable but uplifting movie about love. With that said, How Do You Know is the rare gem of a love story that has all the right moves: big laughs, enchanting characters, and a sweet aftertaste.

The latest from writer/director James L. Brooks (As Good as it Gets) centers on Lisa (Reese Witherspoon) and George (Paul Rudd), as they each face a road block in their thirty-something lives. Lisa, an aging softball player who believes strongly in age-old affirmations, has just been cut from the national team and is struggling to figure out how to spend her time, and more important, whom to spend it with. George, a goofy good guy, thinks he has it all together until he’s subpoenaed at work for suspicion of stock fraud and is facing the real possibility of facing jail time for a crime he didn’t commit.
