Does Anyone Still Care About Reese Witherspoon?

Does Anyone Still Care About Reese Witherspoon?

Dec 21, 2010

How do you know when Reese Witherspoon's star has done a nosedive off the Brooklyn Bridge in the middle of winter? How about when her co-stars are Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson, and the girl still can't suck $10 million out of her latest film, How Do You Know, on opening weekend. C'mon, you're in a film with Jack f**king Nicholson! Written and directed by James L. Brooks, who helped Nicholson get a freakin’ Oscar. $8 million? That’s it?

It's hard to pinpoint exactly what it is, though. You remember liking Witherspoon at one point (Election was great and Walk the Line was impressive), but then all of a sudden you just stopped caring. Was it the break-up with Jake Gyllenhaal? Is she not involved in enough scandals? Does she need to take off her clothes? Is the Paul Rudd reunion a waste if it's not an Overnight Delivery sequel? What does Reese Witherspoon need to do to get us to care about her again (and don't say "star in more movies")?
