If there was a list of American sweethearts, their names would undoubtedly be at the top of the list. Reese Witherspoon was born Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon on 22 March 1976 and began her acting career when she was a young girl.
Reese Witherspoon made her professional screen debut at the age of 15 in The Man in the Moon, for which she was nominated for a Young Artist Award, but there is no doubt that she made her big breakthrough after playing the “lovely” Elle Woods in her 2001 film Legally Blonde.
Since then she has starred in some major screen productions, including Sweet Home Alabama (her biggest commercial live-action success) and Walk The Line, which won her the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, BAFTA Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and Critics Choice Award for Best Actress.
The mother of three is currently still involved in various acting projects, but when she takes off her “acting shoes”, she owns and manages the production company, Pacific Standard, she is actively involved in children’s and women’s rights organizations and is on the board of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF).
Also, Reece was named Global Ambassador for Avon Products in 2007 and is the Honorary Chair of the Avon Foundation. She was also awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on December 1, 2010. I don’t want to upset her, but her resume is impressive.
Let’s move straight on to the main course and start with the height of Reese Witherspoon.
Reese Witherspoon’s Height
Today is the day for Reese to make it onto a whole bunch of lists because there is no doubt that she would make it onto a list of the “most petite” female stars in Hollywood if there was a list. No one has to tell you that she is small, it’s quite crass. So it’s no surprise that the actress is 1.5 meters 1 inch tall, and you can bet that she will rock every inch she has.
Do you know what would make the height of her Reece Witherspoon even more striking? A big co-star and she had one in the movie Four Christmas 2008. Sources say that her height differences during the shooting caused some challenges, as Reese’s figure shouldn’t be that much shorter than Vince’s. Here’s what the actress had to say about that.
‘He’s 6’5″ and I’m 5’2″. We had a really funny scene, I don’t know if it’s in the film anymore, where he rolls over onto me. We were in bed and then at the very end he rolls over and goes to sleep, but he rolls over and lays on top of me.’
She added: “It was as if a tree trunk had just landed on me. I went on: “Tim-brrr! It was really funny. I was standing on a lot of boxes and they had to build ramps about the size of where I was supposed to be. It was a challenge, especially the kissing scenes. It was hard to get up there to kiss him, but we managed to do it.
As we are dealing with lists today, here is a short one containing some celebrities who share Reese Witherspoon’s height. Lady Gaga, Vanessa Hudgens, and Nelly Furtado are all as tall as the star.
The actress has a tough body, none of us here will testify to that, and even after the birth of her babies she still has it. Some would even say she’s better looking than ever. She had her last baby bump in 2012, and after the birth of her second son and her last child in September of the same year, the actress recovered remarkably.

Reese went all the way to regain her weight, all the way to Mexico, on a weight-loss vacation that is said to be an adventurous fitness and yoga vacation. After the retreat, an insider revealed that “Witherspoon was so inspired by her healthy vacation that she took Bryant’s fitness tips to heart. She did eat less fatty food and wine”.
