We all know who Reese Witherspoon is. I mean how can we not?

She has been coined "America's Sweetheart" and according to her IMDB page, she held the role of highest-paid actress in Hollywood in 2007.

She hit the scene at the tender age of 7.

She dabbled in modeling and made her first major acting debut at the age of fourteen, the movie was The Man in the Moon.

Reese is a mother to 3, an actress, activist, and entrepreneur...

She's a woman who seems to have it all.

Just last year Reese posed for Vogue magazine with her look-alike daughter and mother.

As you can see, the Witherspoon gene runs strong.

Yeah, she is definitely a Kween!

As expected, Reese slayed the photo shoot. In fact, I have never seen a bad photo of her.

Reese was once heard saying...

“When you look good, you feel good," or was that Elle Woods?

"Reese" is actually the star's middle name.

Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon was born on March 22, 1976, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Reese is actually her mother’s maiden name.

Her parents often referred to her as "Little Type A."

That was Reese’s nickname as a child. And I’m 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.

Reese has 59 movie credits to her name.

But, she’ll forever be remembered for her role as Elle Woods in the movie, Legally Blonde.

Do you remember some famous quotes from that movie?

I think mine is when “Stifler’s Mom," says, “You look like the Fourth of July! Makes me want a hotdog real bad!"

She branded herself as a role model for girls everywhere...

Women can be smart as hell, and look damn good doing it.

And if you're a huge fan of Reese's, then you should know this...

During their talk, Lopez mentioned that she had recently watched Legally Blonde with her kids.

And they obviously loved it...

"Oh, my god, we watched Legally Blonde the other day," Lopez told Witherspoon. "Literally, like, four days ago. Oh, my god, I forgot—I can't believe I didn't tell you. They loved it. Loved it. It was so much fun. You were so amazing in that. It's so great. And then, my daughter's like, 'I want to know what happens to her.' And I said, 'There's a 2 and a 3, I believe.'"

Witherspoon set us all off with her reply: "Well, no, there's a 2 but I'm thinking we might be working on a 3."

One thing's for sure, we can't wait for the release date, and a chance to get a load more of the iconic Elle Woods. If you're feeling nostalgic keep scrolling to find out why Clueless is returning to the big screen...
