Star sightings: Reese Witherspoon, Harrison Ford, One Direction



Reese Witherspoon, Harrison Ford and members of the boy band One Direction all have been spotted out and about in Atlanta in recent days.

Witherspoon just got to town to work on the film “Devil’s Knot,” also starring Colin Firth. She dined at Bistro Niko on Saturday and the Atlanta Fish Market on Sunday.

“She was with her husband and two children, with no makeup, hair up in a ponytail and sweats,” said our well-placed source, a person with direct knowledge of the encounter. “She was very sweet, and when she came up to the hostess stand, she said ‘Hey y’all.’ She was placed at a very private table, and one that had the AC cranking. She was really appreciative of that.”

Witherspoon is expecting Baby #3. Imagine being pregnant in this heat!

Also checking out the Atlanta Fish Market recently: the Brit-Irish band One Direction, in town last week to perform at the Gwinnett Arena (here’s a review of their show), and Jewel, who’s in Atlanta working on the Lifetime movie “Ring of Fire,” about the life of June Carter Cash. Witherspoon portrayed JCC in the movie “Walk the Line,” of course. Maybe she and Jewel can compare June notes while they’re both in town.

Finally, Harrison Ford dined at Veni Vidi Vici last Thursday. He’s here working on “42,” the movie about Dodgers great Jackie Robinson. That movie filmed last week at the Biltmore in Midtown and is out in Hiram this week.

The one on the far left looks like a guy from One Direction… the rest are definitely not in the group.
