‘Four Christmases’ Premiere Was Missing a Lead

Betsy Waldman / November 21, 2008

Reese Witherspoon, 32, dazzled in a blue strapless dress Thursday night at the Hollywood premiere of her romantic comedy Four Christmases, out in theaters next Wednesday.

The event, held at the Hollywood Boulevard Mann’s Chinese Theater, was also attended by Four Christmases co-stars Katy Mixon, Sissy Spacek, Kristin Chenoweth, Mary Steenburgen (who brought along hubby Ted Danson as her date) and Jon Favreau.

New mom Minnie Driver also made an appearance, wearing a white lace-lined dress with see-through sleeves.

Noticeably absent was the male lead in the film, Vince Vaughn.

While initial reports had Reese Witherspoon seeming at odds with the much-taller Vaughn, 38, last night she told USA Today he was the “funniest co-star she’s ever had.”

Vince was said to be in Bora Bora working on another film.

Next up for Reese is the animated 3-D feature Monsters Vs. Aliens, which is set to be released in March 2009.
