A-list actress Reese Witherspoon, is clearly one of Hollywood's most beautiful starlets and America's sweetheart. She captured our hearts when she played the role of Elle Wood's in Legally Blonde, proving on-screen and off-screen that a girl can be both beautiful and intelligent. Witherspoon talked about the rejections she faced in Hollywood in an interview with Daily Mail in 2011, "You have to be focused and tough because it takes a tenacious personality to deal with rejection. When I first came here (to LA), all I heard was, 'No, not right–not tall enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough.'" She admitted, "I didn't really care about their opinions. I'm stubborn." Elle Woods would be proud of Reese.
