Reese Witherspoon Brentwood Country Mart Lunch Pictures

Reese Witherspoon Gears Up For a Big Filmmaking Honor!

Reese Witherspoon smiled in LA.

Reese Witherspoon smiled yesterday after having lunch with friends at the Brentwood Country Mart. She was decked out for the occasion in a pair of Rich & Skinny jeans, which she complemented with a two-tone bag from Celine. Reese is now gearing up to celebrate her first Thanksgiving with husband Jim Toth. She's in California prepping for the holiday after a recent trip to her home state of Tennessee. Reese attended the 2011 CMA Awards in Nashville, where she joined a long list of celebrity guests like Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman, and Keith Urban.

More travel is in Reese's future next year. She's being honored by the Art Institute of Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center next June, and on the 23rd of that month will travel to the Windy city for "A Summer Evening With Reese Witherspoon." The annual fundraiser will include a Q & A session with Reese, conducted by a yet-to-be-announced guest host.
