All the Times Reese Witherspoon Won Our Hearts and Blew Our Minds
We at Totally Good Time are eagerly anticipating the second season of Big Little Lies. All we know so far is that we can expect it some time in 2019, which seems like an eternity to wait. But while we do, we'll surely be revisiting some of the many memorable performances by the show's star studded cast.
To say Reese has been involved in a lot of projects is the understatement of the century. Here are some choice moments, curated by us, for you to feast upon. If you savor these, and chew slowly, they'll get you through the rest of 2018 and then suddenly, it will seem, season two will be upon us!
We also have a Big Little Lies sweatshirt to keep you warm on those especially trying nights of waiting and wishing season two were here already! Or you can show your allegiance to Madeline with our I Love My Grudges tee.
Pleasantville (1998) Transported with her dorky brother David (Tobey Maguire) into some kind of alternate black and white universe, Jennifer (Witherspoon) is a disruptive force, injecting color and chaos everywhere she goes.
Cruel Intentions (1999) In this nod to Dangerous Liaisons, proud and pure virgin Annette (Witherspoon) wins the heart of soulless, sinister Sebastian (Ryan Philippe - who she would later marry IRL!) much to the chagrin of his equally evil sister Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar).
Election (1999) Witherspoon plays Tracy Flick, a success obsessed candidate for school president willing to lie, cheat, and steal to get elected. When student government teacher Jim McAllister (Matthew Broderick) decides to intervene in the name of ethics, it's war.
Legally Blonde (2001) Elle Woods (Witherspoon) wants one thing only, to become Mrs. Warner Huntington III (Matthew Davis). Warner is apprehensive, on the grounds of Elle being too blond. She shows him, gets herself accepted to Harvard, and learns a thing or two from it all... If you're team Elle (as you'll surely be) you may want to snag this sweatshirt . Or maybe this tee.
Walk the Line (2005) Reese stole the show and won her first Oscar (we think there are more to come) for her portrayal of June Carter Cash, mistress and eventual wife of Johnny Cash (Joaquin Phoenix). Reese also revealed impressive singing chops, and has us hoping that one day she'll record a kitschy country western album.
