Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon is professionally known as Reese Witherspoon,
is an American actress, film producer, and television producer. Witherspoon
landed her first feature role as the female lead in the film The Man in the Moon
in 1991; later that year she made her television acting debut, in the cable
movie Wildflower. In 1996, Witherspoon appeared in Freeway and followed that
appearance with roles in three major 1998 films: Overnight Delivery,
Pleasantville and Twilight. The following year, Witherspoon appeared in the
critically acclaimed Election, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
Witherspoon's upcoming films signal a departure from the love triangle theme. In
September 2011, nearly a year after beginning work on This Means War,
Witherspoon began filming Jeff Nichols's coming-of-age drama Mud in Arkansas.
Witherspoon plays the supporting role of Juniper, the former girlfriend of a
fugitive (Matthew McConaughey), who enlists two local boys to help him escape
capture and rekindle his romance with Witherspoon's character. Mud premiered in
May 2012 in competition for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, but did
not win. The movie had its American debut at the Sundance Film Festival on
January 19, 2013, and will have a limited release in selected theaters on April
Witherspoon's next film will be Atom Egoyan's same-named adaptation of the true
crime book Devil's Knot, which examines the controversial case of the West
Memphis Three. Like Mud, the story is set in Arkansas. Witherspoon plays Pam
Hobbs, the mother of one of three young murder victims. In an interview
subsequent to Witherspoon's casting in the film, Egoyan noted that although the
role requires "an emotionally loaded journey", he "met with Reese, and...talked
at length about the project, and she's eager to take on the challenge". The
movie was shot in Georgia in June and July 2012. Witherspoon was pregnant with
her third child during filming.
Numerous other projects have been announced, including the Disney film Wish
List, to be written by Glenn Berger and Jonathan Aibel and directed by
Bridesmaids helmer Paul Feig, and an adaptation of the self-help book, Men Are
from Mars, Women Are from Venus. Witherspoon is also set to jointly star in and
produce a number of movies under her Pacific Standard banner, including the
comedy-drama Rule #1, a film based on Cheryl Strayed's memoir Wild, a film
version of upcoming children's book series Pennyroyal's Princess Boot Camp, the
raunchy comedy Who Invited Her, and the comedy The Beard. She is also set to
produce, but not star in, a film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl.

at 6262 Hollywood Blvd. She became a mum again just four months ago when she
welcomed her son Tennessee into the world. So itís not surprising that Reese
