REESE'S GHOSTWRITERS: If you thought Reese Witherspoon's acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards sounded a little, well, raunchy for her, that's because we hear it was written by the raunch queen herself, Chelsea Handler. The two recently shot the film The War Room and are now so chummy that Handler was one of three stars (with Robert Pattinson and Patrick Dempsey) who roasted Witherspoon before handing her the Generation Award. Witherspoon's least characteristic quote: "When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed -- you hid it under your bed. And if you take naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people!" She referred to Pattinson, who played her son in Vanity Fair and her lover in Water for Elephants, as "the biggest motherf--er in Hollywood." Neither Handler's nor Witherspoon's spokespeople got back to THR.

Candid on Camera

Photographer to the stars and WireImage co-founder Kevin Mazur's subject for his first documentary, Sellebrity, hits close to home: paparazzi. After all, WireImage is famous for shooting stars on red carpets, onstage and on the street. Mazur started the project three years ago, and it was submitted to various film festivals. "I'm friends with Marc Anthony," Mazur tells THR, "and he said, 'Nobody knows this business better than you.' " So Anthony, wife Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Elton John and more were interviewed and wound up narrating the doc. "We talked to stars, people on the street, newsstand owners and some photographers," says Mazur. "But most of these guys turn out to be hypocrites. They'll take pictures of celebrities, but they wouldn't be in the film."
