Reese determined to have fun at Globes

Reese Witherspoon hasn’t written an acceptance speech in the lead-up to the Golden Globe Awards because she “doesn’t worry about those things”.

The annual ceremony takes place on Sunday evening in Los Angeles, and the 38-year-old actress is nominated for a Best Actress trophy for her performance in Wild. But she’s made it clear she’s not stressing herself out by over-preparing.

"No, no, no, no, no," Reese told E! News when asked if she had written an acceptance speech. "You know, all those things, I don't even worry about those things. I'm determined to have a good time. It's important to have fun and enjoy yourself."

The biopic sees the blonde beauty playing Cheryl Strayed, a woman who embarked on a harrowing 1,100-mile solo hike.

With her priorities in the right place, Reese will surely have an enjoyable time alongside her peers and colleagues in the industry. The city’s Beverly Hilton Hotel will be teeming with Hollywood’s biggest names as they show up for the event in their best red carpet attire. Reese has some stiff competition for the Best Actress nod, including Jennifer Aniston for her work in Cake, Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl, Julianne Moore for Still Alice and Felicity Jones for The Theory of Everything.

As well as waiting to receive awards, many of the actors are responsible for handing them out. Jared Leto, Melissa McCarthy, Matthew McConaughey, Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lopez are among those announcing the winners on the night.

Birdman is leading the way in the nomination stakes with seven chances at a win. It’s followed closely by Boyhood and The Imitation Game, which each have five.
