Reese witherspoon and joaquin phoenix dating
" After "Sports Widow," Witherspoon will likely make "Whiteout," about a U. Marshal searching for a killer in Antarctica as the sun is about to set for six months."I've always wanted to do a thriller, so I'm developing a couple of thrillers that I'm really excited about," she said.Witherspoon recalls, "It took us about three months to trust each other because we didn't know each other at all in the beginning and we couldn't even look at each other when we had to sing to each other because it was so embarrassing. ' "It took about three months before we responded to each other's work and saw improvement."I'd sing too loud and he'd say, 'It's driving me crazy, she's singing too loud. It took a long time before we really felt comfortable with each other."

Although Joaquin was able to meet with Johnny before he died last fall (see "Johnny Cash Dead At 71"), Witherspoon never had the chance to meet June or her husband.Fortunately, director James Mangold, whose diverse credits include "Identity," "Kate & Leopold," "Girl, Interrupted" and "Copland," videotaped several interviews with June that he passed along to the actress. I visited her house, got to walk through her closet and stuff."I've got every country music aficionado/interviewer/reporter/journalist from Nashville sending me their tapes, so I've gotten a lot of support like that," Witherspoon added. I know that sounds strange, but just to see her things and see all her musical instruments and see where she lived and spent a lot of her time, a lot of that kind of stuff has been really helpful.Friends of the family have been on set and I've had a lot of time to sort of absorb that side of it." Witherspoon is nearly finished shooting "Walk the Line," due next year, and will follow it up with "Sports Widow," about a wife so frustrated by her husband's addiction to watching football that she schools herself on the sport beyond even his knowledge.
