Reese Witherspoon Sports a New Look

May 8, 2014 Reese Witherspoon, Atom Egoyan

Reese Witherspoon has undergone a complete make-over for her upcoming movie Devil's Knot which will hit theatres on May 9.

In the film, she portrays a real life mother of three boys who were murdered 1993 in Arkansas.

"It's unreal how generous she was and how she completely allowed herself to become this southern mom," Devil's Knot director Atom Egoyan tells me. "That to me was awe inspiring and it was to the other actors as well. She was part of this ensemble and she really wanted it to be as authentic as possible."

Witherspoon says she put on a systematic make-up which gives the illusion that she isn’t wearing any.

"I think that's a huge statement to her quality as an actress, to assume a role like this and to be so invested in it and at the same time be modest it about," Egoyan said. "It's not a traditional role. The film doesn't centre around her…But she saw this was a story that needed to be told and committed herself to it."

Witherspoon becomes the movie's unofficial consultant on all things southern. "She wanted to make sure that the story was told in the south [they shot the film in Atlanta] and that it shouldn't resort to clichés," Egoyan said, adding, "She was definitely an extras expert. She was sort of obsessed by how people looked. That was so great. I loved that."

Egoyan fears the case of the murdered boys may never be solved. "I pray we might find out what happened but it seems unfathomable given the time that has passed, all the mistakes that have been made, all the records that have been lost," he said. "There was so much that was done wrong after the crime."
