Reese Witherspoon - biographyReese Witherspoon is an actress who stormed into the sparkling world of Hollywood and boldly took one of the places along with the most famous film stars.
ChildhoodHer full name is Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon. She was born on March 22, 1976, in New Orleans, in the family of John and Betty Witherspoon.
When she was still a young child, Reese was lucky to have been selected as a model for a florist's television advertisements, after which she started taking acting lessons.
Acting careerHer pathway to fame was neither long nor thorny, as compared to most movie stars. Reese did not have to camp out on the doorsteps of agencies and go to countless castings. The very first ones where she went, accompanying her friend, and not even hoping for good luck, were the most fortunate. Reese was in the right place at the right time and got her first film role.
2001 brought Reese one of her most prominent acting successes - the leading role in the comedy Legally Blonde. The picture was a smashing success, and although the role of Elle Woods was originally supposed to be given to Tori Spelling, at the last moment the film producers offered the role to Reese and certainly did not regret it. A curious fact is that when she signed the contract, Reese set a condition that she would keep all the outfits and accessories after the shooting of the film.
The biopic Walk the Line was released in 2005. The tragic story of the legendary country singer John Cash was doomed to become a success - the acting duo of Reese and Joaquin Phoenix melted the hearts of the harshest critics.
In 2018, the actress played one of the main roles in the film A Wrinkle in Time, where she was joined on the set by Zach Galifianakis and Chris Pine. She also played the main role in the film “Home Again”, where her partner was the superb Michael Sheen.
