I haven’t done a post like this in a while but today I want to share my favorite Reese Witherspoon Movies with you. She’s a very talented actress who played in many amazing films, so she clearly deserves her own post 😉
#5 – Legally Blonde:
The only way to describe Reese Witherspoon in this role is as divine. Her character, Elle Woods, is cute, funny and smart. She proves everybody wrong, stands up for what she believes and makes her dreams come true. A lovely comedy, I never get tired watching!
#4 – Election:
Election is the perfect dark comedy. Reese Witherspoon plays Tracy Flick a stone cold girl who stops at nothing to become class president. Brilliant is the only word to describe what Witherspoon does in this film. I’ve seen many of her films but this one is among my favourites. I always love a bit of dark humor and in this flick it all comes together perfectly!
#3 – Cruel Intentions:
I’ve seen this movie many times but it never gets old. The soundtrack is wonderful! Being a modern version of Les Liaisons dangereuses, Cruel Intentions captured the spirit of a generation. Reese is one of many stars in this film: Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Selma Blair and many more make this little evil flick so great!
#2 – Walk the Line:
For her role as June Carter Reese Witherspoon won an Academy Award. Each time I see this film I can’t help but marvel at her performance. Not only does she really look like June Carter, she also did an amazing job with singing. I’ve checked out some original videos of June and can confirm that Reese absolutely rocked her role. Her chemistry with Joaquin Pheonix aka Johnny Cash is perfect, so we get one of the best bio-pics ever.
#1 – Freeway:
The last entry in this list is one of Reese Witherspoon’s lesser known movies. However, it’s the one I love the most. In fact, I already wrote about it in one of the first post I ever wrote for this blog!
It’s the darkest version of Little Red Riding Hood you can imagine. Freeway is evil, scary and most certainly a cult film!
Reese Witherspoon is an amazing actress and it was hard to me to only choose 5 movies. So be sure to let me know in the comments which one you’d choose for #1!
