LOS ANGELES: Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon teams up with “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara in “Hot Pursuit,” a female-driven comedy directed, produced and led by a strong presence of women on set.
Academy Award winner Witherspoon, also one of the film’s producers, plays an uptight police officer who has to protect the more outgoing widow of a drug boss, played by Colombian-born Vergara.
“It’s not just that it’s better, you know? It’s just that it’s comfortable,” Vergara said at the film’s premiere Thursday night, when asked about having more women involved in a production.
“We all were taking care of each other like ‘Oh you need to sit straight because your dress is not looking good,’” she said.
“It’s an easier kind of communication working with just women,” Witherspoon said at the premiere. “We think the same things are funny. It’s also we just enjoy the process. It’s fun.”
