Despite hustling hard and working the press circuit like the rent was due yesterday, Hot Pursuit pretty much blew into the box office like a stinky fart and left shortly after. Most people have forgotten about Hot Pursuit, but not Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. During the promo tour for Hot Pursuit, Reese and Sofia acted like they a pair of loyal-to-the-soil summer camp BFFs (see above). But according to Radar, both Reese and Sofia – who were producers on the movie – are pissed off that Hot Pursuit flopped harder than Jon Hamm’s dick after busting a nut, and they’re pointing angry fingers at each other. A source says:
“Sofia and Reese have turned the movie’s failure into a brutal blame game. Reese blames Sofia’s accent and ‘irritating laugh,’ while Sofia blames Reese for not being sexy or funny enough.”
Damn, you know you truly can’t stand someone when hearing them laugh makes your eye twitch. The worst part is, Reese can’t avoid Sofia’s high-pitched laugh for very long, because they both share an agent. Reese and Sofia are represented by Reese’s husband Jim Toth, and they’ve pulled him into their fight.
“Jim is desperately trying to broker peace between them, but then they start accusing him of playing favorites! He can’t win.”
The source also claims that Sofia was hoping Hot Pursuit might be her ticket out of television. The shoot schedule for Modern Family is long and hard, and Sofia is apparently over it. Unfortunately, Hot Pursuit was a pile of doo doo and she has to stick around.
Movies flop all the time, so it’s weird that Reese and Sofia are taking this so hard. They really need to look on the bright side; studios will release a sequel to anything if they think there’s a chance it might make a bit of money. And Hot Pursuit 2 would probably not make more than $20. So if anything, they should be thanking each other for sucking so much that they won’t have to work together again.
