LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Pregnancy looks good on Reese Witherspoon!
The three-time mom-to-be made the 14-hour trek by plane to the Cannes Film Festival with husband Jim Toth this week, where she arrived looking fresh-faced to promote her new film, “Mud.”
Rocking a long-sleeve, baby bump-emphasizing black Versace dress and a side-swept ponytail, the glowing 36–year-old star looked none the worse for wear in a pair of hot pink stilettos as she spoke with press about the Jeff Nichols-written/directed drama.
“I grew up with my brother in a creek, riding dirt bikes, dirt fishing, everything you see the boys in the movie doing,” Reese told reporters, via People, about why she chose to sign on for “Mud” at the famed festival on Friday. “When I read Jeff’s script, it felt like home. It’s a beautiful story about the place I’m from.”
Reese has a supporting role in the film, while Matthew McConaughey stars, playing a fugitive on the run from bounty hunters while trying to reunite with his long lost love (Reese).
“I like supporting roles but you have to be careful because [big stars] sometimes pull the focus away from the rest of the movie,” Reese said. “But Jeff assured me it was an ensemble movie – and it was.”
