I'm a fan of the talented Reese Witherspoon, so this was definitely a good read.

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 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.

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.

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!
