Reese Witherspoon Approves Of A Justin Bieber ‘Fear’ Remake

You’ve already heard actress Reese Witherspoon heap praise upon “Water for Elephants” co-star Robert Pattinson, so it seems only fitting she move on to another squee-inducing celebrity: Justin Bieber.

During tonight’s MTV First: This Means War (airing on MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET followed by a 30-minute interview on, the topic of the “Baby” singer’s rumored “Fear” remake came up, and as far as we can tell, Reese has no trepidations about the Biebs tackling her 1997 drama.

“Oh, really?” she asked, apparently hearing the news for the first time. “Fine, great. That’d be cool. Would he be playing me, or is he playing Mark Wahlberg? Is it like a girl who harasses the family, like a stalker who can’t leave him alone? That would be good, right? I mean girls get crazy about him. Yeah, he’s very talented.”

We hadn’t thought of the role reversal before, but dang-it, Reese, if you haven’t hit on a good thing there. We smell a producer credit, for sure.

Be sure to check in with MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET tonight for MTV First: This Means War.
