Reese Witherspoon Talks Oprah on Conan
Everyone knows media mogul Oprah Winfrey is a gift to the entire universe— someone literally made a YouTube compilation of the six best giveaways hosted on her show. Remember that time she was the cool aunt you wish you had, giving away brand new cars to everyone in the live-studio audience?— but in case you forgot, Reese Witherspoon will be happy to refresh your memory. During her vibrant segment on Conan, the Big Little Lies actress, who’s starring in 2018’s A Wrinkle In Time alongside the network queen, dished on how “amazing,” she really is, adding that Winfrey was generous enough to bring everyone free muffins. “…Sometimes you just felt like you were in Oprah Magazine.” Watch the full clip below (totally worth it. I don’t know where Winfrey gets her muffins, but if Witherspoon thinks they’re Instagram-worthy, they must be delicious!)
A Wrinkle In Time is yet another adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 fantasy novel of the same name. It focuses on 13-year-old Meg Murry, whose father, a government scientist, has disappeared after tampering with the fifth dimension. Witherspoon and Winfrey will be playing Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Which, a duo of cosmic beings who help Meg, her brother, and their friend Calvin exploit a “wrinkle,” in the fifth dimension to try and save her father. Fan Fest favourite, Chris Pratt, will be playing Meg’s father, Dr. Alex Murry, and 12 Years a Slave actress, Storm Reid, will breathe new life into Meg Murry. Want to see more before the movie comes out? A Wrinkle In Time (part of a quartet) has spawned numerous retellings over the years, including an older Disney movie, a graphic novel adapted by Hope Larson (Batgirl), an opera put on in the 90s, and even a stage play.
