Reese Witherspoon is the epitome of fashion grandeur, today. But a pic of the actress emerged from the '90s that showed a side of her you've likely forgotten -- or never knew about -- particularly Reese's uncanny ability to foreshadow the Miley Cyrus of-of today.

A pic of Reese Witherspoon appears in a Good Housekeeping spread that shows her killing the '90s fashion. 'Memba when you sported baggy cargo pants (TLC), crop tops (Britney), platform shoes (Spice Girls) and other swaggy digs? It's one of those pictures that make you want to go retro in a big way.

Reese Witherspoon's first "Saturday Night Live" hosting stint was also the first show to air after 9/11. While she did have a few memorable performances then, that appearance was mostly marked by nerves. Freed from any overwhelming existential uncertainty about the place of comedy, Reese was able to demonstrate that she is a natural next to the "SNL" cast, happy to play along in roles that took advantage of her sunny personality. This episode also continued the tradition of dedicating the Mother's Day weekend show to the holiday, taking that trend about as far as it could possibly go.

Review: 'Devil's Knot' And Director Atom Egoyan Aren't A Match M
The whole idea of a ‘director for hire’ can be a truly mixed bag. Meaning bringing in a filmmaker who normally develops his or her own complex material to simply helm a flick all ready to go could be a blessing or a curse. In the case of auteur Canadian director Atom Egoyan – the mastermind behind such affecting work as "The Adjuster" and "Exotica" - and his new encapsulated fiction feature film about the famed West Memphis Three entitled "Devil’s Knot" the news is not good. While the material would seem to be right up the alley of the dark themes driven Egoyan, the movie itself provides...
