Of course, the 41-year-old and Big Little Lies star didn’t always have a perfect life and was hit with a couple of  hard truths of her own through the years. Let’s take a look at how Reese has managed to create a life that most of us dream about.

Early Life

Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon was born on March 22 in 1976  in Nashville, Tennesse. Her father Dr. John Draper Witherspoon practiced privately as an otolaryngologist until 2012. He also served as a lieutenant colonel in the United States Army for some time. Her mother, Betty was also very accomplished having earned five degrees including a Ph.D. in nursing. She worked as a Nursing Professor. Witherspoon has an older brother John Jr., who works as a real estate agent. As a child, Witherspoon was a huge scholar who enjoyed reading and tending to her studies. The southern belle ventured outside of the books at a very early age and began modeling and appearing in t.v. ads at the tender age of 7.


As an overachiever and knick named by her parents as “Little Type A,” Reese began taking acting classes and developed a love for it. In 1991 her lessons finally paid off, and she was cast as Dani Trant in The Man in The Moon. That same year Witherspoon was cast in the movie Wildflower with Patricia Arquette. Witherspoon continued to act in a variety of films and shows like starring in the movie Pleasantville in 1998.


In 1999 things really started to take off for Witherspoon and her acting career. She starred in the cult 90s classic Cruel Intentions with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and landed a huge follow-up role in the movie Election. Witherspoon’s roles in these films would prove her to be an actress of substance versus just “another dumb blonde.” That year Witherspoon also guest-starred on the hit show Friends alongside future BFF Jennifer Aniston.


The early 2000s were extremely good to Witherspoon who’s star status rose tremendously when she starred as Elle Wood’s in the uber-successful chick flick Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. The films were a great clap back at Witherspoon’s haters and to those in the industry she felt were typecasting her. Witherspoon’s next two films, Vanity Fair and the Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line also did incredibly well at the box office. Witherspoon had officially secured her spot as an A-list actress.


The next five years would take Witherspoon on a few unexpected turns. After 7 years of marriage, Witherspoon divorced from Ryan Phillippe with whom she had a daughter, Ava and son Deacon. Careerwise, Witherspoon struggled to find roles that really showcased her best work although she did explore comedy in Four Christmases and continued to star in love triangle themed dramas like This Means War. In 2011 after a year or so of dating Witherspoon tied the knot with Jim Toth, a talent agent. Together the couple have a son.


In 2013 Witherspoon ventured out into more substantial roles, and in 2014 she starred in the critically acclaimed film Wild. Witherspoon returned to comedy in Hot Pursuit and did some voice acting work in Sing! In 2016, Witherspoon took to t.v. with the hit show Big Little Lies. The show received critical claim and was Witherspoon’s most celebrated achievement since her Legally Blonde Days. As of January 2018, Big Little Lies was picked up for a second season which resulted in a hefty pay increase for Witherspoon and her co-stars.
