Reese Witherspoon to play seducing nanny

Reese Witherspoon is set to seduce her children's nanny - in a movie adaptation of hit novel 'The Manny'. The actress, who is currently divorcing Ryan Phillippe, has been lined up as the top choice to play a married career woman who falls for her children's male nanny. Author Holly Pearson told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "I'd love to see Reese in the part. The lead character Jamie Whitefield is very successful but she's very likeable too, and someone you can relate to. Reese has those qualities. What's more, she's just been through a marriage break-up and this makes her seem a little more vulnerable. As for the part of the hunky manny? He's got to be smoking hot. Just like Brad Pitt in 'Thelma and Louise'."

Blonde beauty Reese, 30, filed for divorce from Ryan in November. The pair first met at Reese's 21st birthday party and have two children - Ava, seven, and Deacon, three. Reese has always claimed she and Ryan chose not to hire a full-time nanny, despite their gruelling work schedules. Reese said: "We weren't the kind of children that were shadowed. We didn't have nannies. We didn't have housekeepers. This whole Los Angeles culture is so foreign to me."
