Last night, Reese Witherspoon, Louisianan actress and Draper James head honcho, was honored last night at the American Cinematheque Awards. Stars such as Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Sofia Vegara, Jennifer Garner, and Matthew McConaughey paid tribute to the 39-year-old actress at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel in Los Angeles.
In what usually is an achievement best left for the end of your acting career, Witherspoon even remarked to Deadline that "I was stunned when they asked me because I haven’t had a lifetime of achievement, I’ve only had a half of a lifetime of achievement."
Jennifer Aniston took to the stage to reword Witherspoon's Wikipedia entry, saying, "Her heroic origin story as a movie star started at 14. She auditioned for a bit part in a movie, but instead found herself cast in the lead role in The Man in the Moon."
Reese attended the event with her 10-year-old son, Deacon, and her 16-year-old daughter/clone, Ava Philippe. With this lifetime achievement award, Witherspoon must have got her hands on some expensive cloning equipment to see what she would look like with pink hair because the resemblance is uncanny.
