Reese Witherspoon - Southern Belle

Reese Witherspoon was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana but moved to Nashville, TN early on. Her father, John, is a surgeon and her mother, Betty, is a pediatric nurse. Reese has said that if she wasn't an actress she would've become a physician too. While growing up, she went to a private girls school and only considered acting a hobby. Things changed in Reese Witherspoon's junior and senior years of high school when she landed the lead role in a feature film The Man in the Moon. Reese Witherspoon suddenly found herself faxing in her homework assignments.

Reese Witherspoon - No Scream Queen

Reese Witherspoon's teen thriller Fear, in 1996, really started to get her noticed by the public. The flick, which also starred Mark Wahlberg, had movie peeps offering Reese roles in Scream, Urban Legends and I Know What You Did Last Summer - but she turned them all down. She didn't want to be labeled a "scream queen" and Reese says horror films, "aren't her cup of tea."

Reese Witherspoon - Love Letters

Reese Witherspoon threw herself a big bash for her 21st birthday, which included about 300 guests. One of the guests was fellow actor, Ryan Phillippe. Unfortunately, as fate would have it, Ryan was jetting off to North Carolina the very next day to film I Know What You Did Last Summer (the movie she had just turned down). The pair wrote each other letters the entire time he was away. Ryan and Reese were engaged in 1998 and married in 1999. They also filmed the blockbuster hit Cruel Intentions together.

With her passion for pink, her pint-sized dog Bruiser and her hottie boyfriend, played by Luke Wilson, Elle Woods is a smart, sassy role model for tons of girls.
