Witherspoon Leaves Wma

LEGALLY BLONDE star REESE WITHERSPOON has become the latest star to leave Hollywood's WILLIAM MORRIS AGENCY (WMA).

While HALLE BERRY, SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR and director MATTHEW VAUGHN dumped WMA after controversial comments made by the company's president DAVID WIRTSCHAFTER in a recent magazine article, Witherspoon is moving on because her longtime agent STEVE DONTANVILLE is set to retire.

And despite high expectations that big agencies will vie for Witherspoon's business, sources tell trade publication VARIETY that the actress isn't sure whether she'll take on a new agent, after having spent 15 years with Dontanville, who signed her on her first movie.

Other stars who are with Dontanville through WMA include KIEFER SUTHERLAND and ANNE HATHAWAY. Their future representation is uncertain.
