In Arkansas, we call this grinning like a possum.
Blind gossip item from the UK's 3AM girls revealed:
WHISHPER 22 February
actress left organisers in chaos when she pulled out of accepting
her award with
hours to spare? The A-lister decided she didn't want to fly
to the UK, so a
fellow star was drafted in at the last second.
Wow. I wouldn't have thought Reese Witherspoon would do that, but I watched the BAFTA ceremony on BBC America (much truncated for American audiences, I expect) and Christina Ricci said a terse Thank You for the Best Actress award for Reese. Rather tacky, actually. I expected she was more genteel than to bail on such a high-profile event last-minute, especially when she was taking top honors.
Yes, hide! Hide your face in shame, Reese! Come to think of it, with that period attire you may want to use a fan to cover up that gummy possum grin of yours. And those nails! Sheesh!
