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.

    I've always loved Reese Witherspoon. She's smart, sweet, and real. This book was a nice summary of her life up to 2007. Being a biography, the facts are there, but some of it comes off making Teese harsher than I think she is, and vainer as well. I much prefer autobiographies, where things are directly from the person. Maybe one day, when she's much older. I look forward to that book. I've always loved Reese Witherspoon.

    I rather liked this book. At first I didn't want to read about Reese, however my opinion on her has changed. Before I really didn't think that she was a smart person because she always has the rolls of rather unsmart people. However it turns out she is extremly down to earth and smart. She seems like an amazing human, and I enjoyed reading this book. However I think the story would be better told from herself and not someone else. I rather liked this book.

    Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon? She is a classy, smart woman who is good at what she does. She is impressive and inspirational. The book makes her sound too perfect though, and I was wondering more about her. Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon? She is a classy, smart woman who is good at what she does.

    One of the better celebrity biographies of modern cinema. Although 10 years old, it's still a good thorough book that gives you the important points of Witherspoon's career. Actually have read this one twice! One of the better celebrity biographies of modern cinema.
