She's an Oscar-winning actress, a devoted mother, and a down-to-earth Southern belle. And she's only thirty years old. In this fascinating biography of Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Brown chronicles Witherspoon's participation in local talent shows, her Hollywood debut, and her Academy Award for Best Actress. Brown also highlights the actress's emphasis on maintaining her values in an industry that often has none. Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon was astonishingly ambitious from a young age. By seven, she appeared in commercials and was already taking adult acting classes. In 1990 she earned her first starring role in the film Man on the Moon, and suddenly Hollywood took notice. Brown delves into Witherspoon's decision to put a hold on her acting career to pursue an education - a hold that couldn't last when the scripts kept rolling in - her work with her production company Type A, and, of course, her high-visibility relationship with Ryan Phillippe, whom she met at her 21st birthday party. The first-ever biography of the star, Reese Witherspoon gives fans a close-up look at Hollywood's golden girl.
