And it was all down to a series of photos she uploaded to social media.
Several people were far from impressed with what they saw.
Coined as “America’s Sweetheart” the star is one of the most famous actresses of our time.
Including the fact that, according to her IMDB page, she held the role of the highest-paid actress in Hollywood in 2007.
After dabbled in modeling, she made her first major acting debut at the age of fourteen in 1991’s The Man in the Moon.
Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon was born on March 22, 1976, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Reese is actually her mother’s maiden name.
That was Reese’s nickname as a child. And we’re willing to bet this had something to do with the roles she takes on, and also the name of her own production company… Type A Films.
During her first year out of high school, Witherspoon considered abandoning acting altogether to follow her parents into the medical field.
But, she decided to stick with acting following her success in 1996’s Freeway.
The flick earned her the Catalonian International Film Festival award for best actress.
With acclaimed performances in the likes of Pleasantville (1998), Election (1999), and Cruel Intentions (1999).
And of course, her portrayal of Elle Woods in 2001’s surprise box office hit Legally Blonde, earnt her an entirely new fanbase.
And made her one of the most sought after stars in the business.
The star’s success on both the big and the small screen has continued.
Witherspoon gained even more recognition for her role in Big Little Lies.
The HBO series in which she produced and starred in alongside Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgard, and Laura Dern, garnered significant critical acclaim.
Just as recently as last year, Witherspoon teamed up with Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell on The Morning Show, one of the original programs launched by the Apple TV+ streaming service.
She’s a woman who seems to have it all.
That’s one impressive number!
The star is mom to twenty-year-old Ava, sixteen-year-old Deacon, and 7-year-old Tennessee.
And she regularly posts snaps of her children on social media.
But it seems a new picture has been causing a stir among fans.
Some have gone as far as to mom shame the star for the “dangerous” snaps. Yikes.
And many took to calling the star out on Twitter.
This is not good.
What do you think? Surely this is just kid being a kid?
