 Reese Witherspoon Biography

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1976, Reese Witherspoon began seriously pursuing her acting career after enrolling at Stanford University. Her early critical successes included roles in films such as Pleasantville and Election, but it was her portrayal of Elle Woods in the box-office hit Legally Blonde that marked a turning point in her career.

Witherspoon went on to win an Academy Award in 2005 for her role in Walk the Line, a biographical musical film about the love story of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. Recent films include Water for Elephants, This Means War and Wild for which she received another Oscar nomination. In 2017, she produced and starred in David E. Kelley's HBO series, Big Little Lies.

She stars alongside Steve Carell and Jennifer Aniston in the Apple TV+ series, The Morning Show, which offers an inside look at the lives of the stars of a morning show and the unique challenges they face.

Witherspoon began her career in local commercials. Her first role was in a 1991 made-for-TV movie called Wildflower, directed by Diane Keaton and starring Beau Bridges, William McNamara, and Patricia Arquette. That same year, at age 14, Witherspoon attended an open casting call for The Man in the Moon, intending to audition as a bit player. She was instead cast in the lead role, immediately capturing the attention of critics.

She has since built up an impressive filmography, playing both comedic and dramatic roles, including performances as Vanessa in Freeway and Tracy Flick in Election. She was the voice of the animated character Greta Wolfecastle in The Simpsons episode The Bart Wants What It Wants. She also played Jill Green, Rachel's sister, in season six of "Friends."

She achieved fame and a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination for her role as a fashion designer major who decided to become a law student to follow her ex-boyfriend in the 2001 film Legally Blonde, and became a leading environmental lawyer in its sequel Legally Blonde 2, for which she received a reported $15 million paycheck, making her one of Hollywood's top-paid actresses.

She has garnered critical praise and awards for her turn as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line. Carter Cash, who died in 2003, personally approved of Witherspoon to play her. Witherspoon won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, NYFCC, the FFCC, the SFFCC Award for Best Actress, the Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) for best actress in a lead role, the British Academy's BAFTA for best actress in a lead role, the "Favorite Leading Lady" at the 32nd Annual People's Choice Awards, and the Academy Award for Best Actress for this role.

Recently, Witherspoon has been featured as one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. Her article was written by friend and fellow costar in the Legally Blonde movies, Luke Wilson.

Witherspoon also runs a production company, Type A Productions. Some believe the company is named after her childhood nickname "Little Miss Type A," but she clarified the misconception in Interview: "People think I named it after myself ... But it just isn't who I am at all. It was actually an in-joke with my family because at 7 I understood complicated medical terms, such as the difference between type A and type B personalities. But I just wished I'd named the company Dogfood Films or Fork or something. You carry that baggage all your life."

In 2015 Witherspoon was named a Glamour Women of the Year.

Witherspoon has been an important figure in the Time's Up movement, which focuses on gender equality and anti-harassment in the entertainment industry.
