I just think Reese Witherspoon is great and such a Hollywood anomaly (her birthday was Friday.) She carries Lands' End bags! She goes to church! She went to college! She actually didn't like that she was pregnant before she got married (to Ryan Phillipe!) Yes, so her last 6 films haven't been that great but she is still America's sweetheart and I love her style. Let's take a look at 10 things I love about Reese Witherspoon:
1) A Far off Place
She was in one of my favorite movies as a kid: A Far off Place. It made your parents being murdered and trekking across the Kalahari dessert seem so glamorous. No, but really if you haven't seen this film, it is excellent. It's actually pretty serious and heavy for a Disney flick (but it should kind of get credit for turning Disney on to Africa pre-Lion King.) Anyway young Reese is, as always, excellent.
2) Legally Blonde
For those of us that hadn't been following Reese's career before then this was considered her breakthrough role. It was a box office smash and made Reese a star. I personally love this fulm and will watch it alomost every time iti s on TBS or E because it made me believe (way back in hugh school) that it was okay to be really girly and feminine and still expect people to take you seriously. You can have your pink cake and eat it too! We will forgive her for Legally Blonde 2.
3) Sweet Home Alabama
Oh such a romcom if there ever was, but I loved it. Yes, Patrick Dempsey was way too understanding about it when she left him at the alter but still. Southern people are funny when they meet people from new York ,And of course, Candice Bergin was there Loved her outfits in this movie as well.
4) Reese's style
Speaking of fashion, I love Reeses's style. I have actually written about it before but we need o talk about it again. It is that perfect mix of trendiness and old-fashioned class. And I also love that Reese actually looks like she had a baby unlike everyone else in Hollywood (that's a compliment actually.)
6) The fact that she is a producer and may be adapting Gone Girl for the big screen.
“It’s just an incredible feat that Gillian was able to accomplish,” Reese said. “You really can’t anticipate where it’s going, but it’s one of those books you can’t stop reading.”

8) This Means War
Yes, the film got terrible reviews and was pretty tidiculous but you know what I am cool with any movie where Chris Pine and Tom Hardy are fighting for a girls hand. Especially when that girl is Reese and her BFF is Chelsea Handler. And her outfits in this movie were amazing.
