Reese Witherspoon: The Biographyby Lauren Brown
Highly ambitious from an early age, Reese became involved with acting when she was seven, and her career
At thirty-one years old, Reese Witherspoon is an Academy Award winner and one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. But the Southern belle is as down-to-earth as they come, putting family first and maintaining her values in an industry that often has none.
Highly ambitious from an early age, Reese became involved with acting when she was seven, and her career took off with her first major movie role in The Man in the Moon when she was just fourteen. Since then, Reese has traversed the movie spectrum, from smaller independent films such as Freeway to high-profile films like Sweet Home Alabama and Legally Blonde, which truly cemented her as a box office star.
Brown delves into Reese's decision to put a hold on her acting career to pursue an education-a hold that couldn't last when the scripts kept rolling in-her work with her production company, Type A, and, of course, her high-visibility relationship with Ryan Phillippe, whom she met at her twenty-first birthday party. Brown also details Reese's Best Actress Oscar win for portraying June Carter Cash in 2005's Walk the Line, her recent divorce from Phillippe, and what lies ahead for the actress in her life and career, including her relationship with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. Reese Witherspoon: The Biography gives fans a close-up look at Hollywood's golden girl.
