the other night the star of Legally Blonde became an Oscar winner.
Luckily, Reese Witherspoon didn't win for Legally Blonde 2, bur rather for her run as Johnny Cash’s lady in Walk the Line. Shortly after it came down, Dread Central got a heads-up from a reader who saw over on Hollywood.com a report that Witherspoon also recently won the highest-paid actresses award when she signed on for the horror flick Our Family Trouble, for which she will reportedly get a paycheck in the realm of $29 million.
Our Family Trouble is the story of a first-time mother who is plagued with unexplained phenomena to the point she doubts her own sanity. When she returns to her home in Tennessee, she becomes obsessed with the legend of the Bell Witch and believes the evil spirit is out to harm her son.
Other reports seen online state that Witherspoon’s publicist denied the hefty paycheck rumors, but I guess it doesn’t really matter one way or another; she’s still set to star in a horror film about the Bell Witch, which is news enough!
We’ll have more on Our Family Trouble soon enough,
