On Tuesday, Reese shared the happy news that she would be gracing the cover of Time Magazine for its inaugural 100 Most Influential Companies issue.
Her cover was one of five different images released throughout the world and focused on her growing ‘media empire.’
Following a career slump in the mid-2000s, which saw the actress appearing in several critical and commercial disappointments, she co-founded the production company Pacific Standard in 2012, which was a merger between her earlier production company and Australian film producer Bruna Papandrea’s production company.
After Papandrea parted ways with her, Pacific Standard became a subsidiary of her media company Hello Sunshine in 2016.
Even as her acting career was at its nadir, Reese has produce acclaimed and successful projects, including the Ben Affleck–starring thriller Gone Girl (2014) and the drama Wild from the same year, which earned her another Oscar nomination.

Some of her most successful productions have been in television, including the hit HBO series Big Little Lies, which she also starred in.
Since 2019, she has starred in and executive produced The Morning Show for Apple TV+, and she starred in and executive produced the Hulu miniseries Little Fires Everywhere in 2020.
In her Instagram post about the Time cover, Reese included a gushing not about how special it felt to be recognized for as a producer.
‘If you told my third-grade self, the one who started her first business customizing hair barrettes out of her desk, that one day she would be on the cover of Time Magazine as a businesswoman, She would have said, “That’s So Rad!” *or something very 80s like that,’ began the mother of three.
‘Honestly, I can’t properly express what a humbling experience it is to be recognized by @time as a business leader. (It’s sort of feels like AHHHHHH / eeek/ gulp/ sob!),’ she said.

Speaking of Hello Sunshine, she added, ‘The minute my career became about amplifying other women’s voices, and creating more for others, the world opened up for me in the most incredible ways. I really credit all the incredible people I stand shoulder to shoulder with @hellosunshine. Without their infinite creativity and endless hard work, this company would never become all that it is.’
In her cover story, Reese paused to muse about what trajectory her career might have taken if she hadn’t been labeled a ‘good’ girl by the media, in contrast with stars like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, who were labeled ‘bad girls.
‘What if the media had decided I was something else?’ she said.
‘I would be in a totally different position…. I want to say it’s my decisions or the career choices I made, but it felt very arbitrary. And kind of sh**ty.’
