Film Review - This Means War

Reese Witherspoon

Awards Season is now well and truly over, so if you've been waiting for one of the year's guilty pleasures, then wait no longer, it has arrived.

A film that encourages you to laugh at it, as much as with it, This Is War takes a ludicrous premise, and does increasingly ludicrous things with it. What more could you want?

Reese Witherspoon's new husband Jim Toth thinks her life is "bizarre"

Reese Witherspoon's new husband Jim Toth thinks her life is "bizarre".

The 'Water for Elephants' actress – who married the Hollywood agent in a small ceremony in March – thinks Jim is shocked at suddenly being the centre of attention having always been behind the camera and working with talent out of the public glare previously.

She said: "He thinks it's totally bizarre. I think you have an instinct when you're with the person you want to build a life with. You learn more as you get older about what you need in a partner."

Reese Witherspoon “didn’t have to think” before accepting Jim Toth’s
marriage proposal.
The 'Water for Elephants' actress – who married the Hollywood agent
last month – was absolutely certain she wants to spend the rest of her
life with Jim and didn’t hesitate in agreeing to get engaged.
She said: "I knew he was The One all right. A clue was when he asked
me to marry him and I said yes right away. Didn't have to think about
it. It just feels like the right thing at the right time in my life."
Reese - who has two children Ava, 11, and seven-year-old Deacon from
her previous marriage with actor Ryan Phillippe – liked Jim from when
she first met him but says the pair can't agree on who pursued who at
the beginning of their relationship.

The 'Water for Elephants' actress married agent Jim Toth last month and the pair, along with Ava, 11, and seven-year-old Deacon - her kids with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - jetted into Belize on April 4 for a romantic six-day stay.

An onlooker told UsMagazine.com: "They definitely looked like a happy family. The kids seemed like they had no problem with him around."

Despite Reese's superstar status, the foursome didn't receive any special treatment as they landed in the tropical Central American country.

Reese Witherspoon was “surprised” Jim Toth wanted to be with her

Reese Witherspoon was “surprised” Jim Toth wanted to be with her.

The ‘Water for Elephants’ actress – who split from first husband Ryan Phillippe in 2006 after seven years of marriage – tied the knot with the Hollywood agent last week but admits she never expected to find love again because she has too many “quirks”.

She said: “You’re surprised somebody wants to be with you because, boy, I’ve got a lot of quirks and wrinkles.”

However, the 35-year-old beauty believes her marriage to ‘Cruel Intentions’ co-star Ryan – with who she has children Ava, 11, and seven-year-old Deacon - helped her “learn” a lot about relationships and particularly communication with a significant other.

Reese Witherspoon keeps a make-up bag wherever she goes.

The ‘Water for Elephants’ actress – who is engaged to Hollywood agent Jim Toth – hates to be caught without her favourite cosmetics, though she insists she tries to limit what she takes with her.

She said: “I have a bunch of different make-up bags – one in my car, one in my handbag and one at home.

“I try to keep them small, but I have about five lipglosses, mascara, cover-up, lipstick and blush.”

One of the things the actress relies on keeping in her make-up bag is a white eyeliner pencil, as she believes it keeps her looking refreshed.
