Oscar and Golden Globe-winning actress Reese Witherspoon made her mark as a smart, driven and self-respecting actress who refused to take the easy road to stardom with mindless teen flicks and broad comedies. Her sturdy Southern upbringing by an academic family was evident in the focus and confidence she brought to her first starring film role at the age of 14. Uncommon comedic talent paired with her high energy and charismatic spirit first caught critical notice in 1996's indie cult hit "Election," and by 2001, she assumed the role of one of the few leading ladies who could open a film with her delightfully cheeky turn in "Legally Blonde." Her commitment to "real" women characters rendered the occasional lackluster comedy like "Sweet Home Alabama" (2002) watchable, but Witherspoon proved herself to be a serious dramatic contender with her overwhelmingly acclaimed portrayal of June Carter Cash in "Walk the Line" (2004), for which she won a much deserved Oscar. Reese Witherspoon Wallpaper 4. Off-screen, her marriage to fellow actor Ryan Phillippe seemed to echo the perfection of all other aspects of her world, but the couple shocked the public in 2006 when – after two children and many years together, by Hollywood standards - they separated amidst rumors of his infidelity. Ever the fighter and self-professed type-A personality, Witherspoon picked up the pieces with class and discretion, and continued on with her highly bankable career. Reese Witherspoon was born on March 22, 1976, in New Orleans, LA. Her mother was a professor with numerous degrees, including a PhD in pediatric nursing, while her father was a surgeon as well as a lieutenant in the Army Reserves. His military post led the family to relocate to Weisbaden, Germany, shortly after Witherspoon was born. She spent her infancy overseas before the family returned to the United States and settled in Nashville, TN. The youngest of two kids as well as the only daughter, Witherspoon was bookish and ambitious, simultaneously planning to go into medicine like her parents, but also telling the girls in the schoolyard at the private Harding Academy that she was going to be the next Dolly Parton. A family friend recruited the perky blonde for a local TV commercial when she was seven; thus marking the humble beginnings of the girl who would one day find herself among the highest paid actresses in Hollywood. Inspired by her brush with local fame, Witherspoon began taking acting lessons, and when she was 11 years old, took first place in a multi-state talent competition. For the next several years, Witherspoon maintained her focus on schoolwork and cheerleading, as well as absorbing her traditional Southern upbringing, which she would later credit with her strong work ethic and sense of responsibility.

Her accomplished mother and grandmother instilled self-respect and high moral standards, which probably came in handy sooner than expected when their 14- year-old daughter inadvertently landed the lead role in a Hollywood film. Witherspoon and some friends attended a casting call for "The Man in the Moon" in 1990 when they heard the film that was being shot locally. The best they hoped for was to have some fun as extras, but casting agents immediately zeroed in on Witherspoon, who was selected to fly to Los Angeles for further auditions. The inexperienced actress gave a shining performance on her first time out, playing with heartbreaking poignancy, a 14-year-old girl in love with her sister's boyfriend-next-door. It was immediately apparent from her performance that she could handle three-dimensional, passionate characters with both manners and moxie. The girl whose parents had nicknamed her "Little Miss Type A" for her driven and multi-tasking personality followed up with the Diane Keaton-directed cable movie "Wildflower" (Lifetime, 1991), playing a girl who discovers an epileptic teenager (Patricia Arquette) held captive by her father. She held down a fairly regular school schedule at the private girls' school Harpeth Hall, while racking up television credits as a critically ill young woman in "Desperate Choices: To Save My Child" (NBC, 1992) and as a young wife with a wandering eye in the miniseries "Return to Lonesome Dove" (CBS, 1993). That same year, she evaded murderous poachers as the star of "A Far Off Place," a teen-aimed Disney adventure filmed in the Kalahari Desert. Witherspoon graduated from high school in 1994 and entered the prestigious Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, with her sights set on a degree in English Literature. But after only a year, acting tugged her down to Los Angeles where directors were lining up to cast the little firecracker. Witherspoon delivered a breakthrough turn as a sensitive and sassy hostage in the controversial Gen-X satire "S.F.W." (1995) which signaled her move toward more risky, complex roles. She was stalked by a pre-"Boogie Nights" Mark Wahlberg in James Foley's "Fear" (1996), and kissed her nice girl image good-bye in "Freeway" (1996), where she played a gun-toting, trash-mouthed juvenile delinquent, snarling and pouting her way through a modern-day "Little Red Riding Hood." Reese Witherspoon Wallpaper 4. Developing a varied and rewarding career seemed to come naturally to the young actress, who held the lessons taught by her mother and grandmother to heart, avoiding roles that catered to dumbed down female teen stereotypes. After she portrayed the wayward daughter of Susan Sarandon and Gene Hackman in "Twilight" (1998), her all-American fresh-scrubbed look and pert demeanor found its way into Gary Ross' "Pleasantville" (1998), where she and Tobey Maguire starred as 1990s teens who travel back in time to introduce a bold new life force to a 1950s black-and-white world. By the time those films hit theaters, Witherspoon had a bold new force in her own life, having met up-and-coming actor Ryan Phillippe at her 21st birthday party in the spring of 1997. The couple was an instant item and became engaged in late 1998.
