Reese Witherspoon is honestly one of our all-time favorite actresses. She stole our hearts as early as the 1990s, but she's still making waves on the television screen and in Hollywood. Her newest project was Big Little Lies, where she absolutely slays the fiery role of Madeline Mackenzie. As well, you should watch out for her new show, The Morning Show, with Jennifer Aniston.
However, we're here to talk about movies, and this gal has had her fair share of great ones. With two Oscar nominations, and one win (for Walk the Line (2005)), it's safe to say this brilliant woman has an incredible track record. In case you're searching for your next binge, we made a list of her most popular films. Here are her 10 highest-grossing movies of all time.
10 Just Like Heaven (2005) - $48.3 million
This comedy drama stars Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. David is a lonely architect who moves into a new apartment. However, things get a bit more complicated when he begins to fall in love with the spirit of the beautiful woman who used to live there.
Yeah, it's a bit different, we'll say, but it still got a 6.7/10 on IMDb, and we love these two actors. We suggest giving it a go for a heartfelt and hilarious story that will definitely be your pick-me-up for the day.
9 This Means War (2012) - $54.7 million
This action romantic comedy stars Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy, and Chris Pine. In case we even need to say more (which we don't think we do), this movie follows a pair of C.I.A. agents as they find out they're dating the same woman.
This is a pretty interesting twist for a movie about the C.I.A., and you can bet your money that it's quirky, funny, and absolutely outrageous. Still, we absolutely love this cast, and we think it's worth your time for an easy and fun watch.
8 Water for Elephants (2011) - $58.7 million
This movie is stunning. Taking place in the 1930s, a veterinary student (Robert Pattinson) takes a job traveling with the circus. However, things get more complicated when he begins to fall in love with the beautiful and brilliant Marlene (Reese Witherspoon), who just so happens to be the ringmaster's wife.
This drama romance is honestly sensational - it's a stunning visual, and will have you absolutely mesmerized by the romance, circus, and '30s life. Definitely go watch it, right now.
7 Legally Blonde (2001) - $96.5 million
This movie is likely where Reese made a name for herself, and it's also likely that we'll never, ever forget it. We all know her iconic role as Elle Woods, a sorority queen who takes on law school.
If you haven't seen this film, can you really call yourself a Reese Witherspoon fan? The sequel even managed to gross $90.2 million, which is pretty impressive. Also, a little birdie told us there's a third one coming out, so, try not to get too excited.
6 A Wrinkle in Time (2018) - $100.5 million
This movie had a pretty powerful women cast. With Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon, this magical children's film was truly brought to life. It also has Chris Pine and Zach Galifianakis, if you wanted a couple famous men, too.
This fantasy film follows a teenage girl as she investigates the disappearance of her scientist father, who ends up in a magical time warp with her younger brother. Honestly, this film isn't fantastic, but it's still stunning to watch, and is a pretty powerful movie about growing up and finding yourself. Plus, this cast is stellar.
5 Walk the Line (2005) - $119.5 million
This is the movie where Reese won her Oscar. In fact, it also had four other Academy Award nominations. If that isn't enough information, maybe us telling you that Reese's co-star is the absolutely brilliant Joaquin Phoenix.
If that's STILL not enough, this biography drama is a chronicle of Johnny Cash's life. Starting from his early days on a cotton farm to his rise in fame in Memphis, this infamous artist's story is one definitely worthy of your time. There, now we know you'll go watch it, if you haven't already.
4 Four Christmases (2008) - $120.1 million
This romantic comedy follows a couple as they struggle to fit in a Christmas with each of their divorced parents. Directed by Seth Gordon, this movie stars Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn.
This story is actually pretty cute, and we're sure many of us can relate to it. This is a quirky and fun Christmas movie to watch on a cold night with your boo or your bestie. We promise it'll get you into the Christmas spirit.
3 Sweet Home Alabama (2002) - $127.2 million
This is another romantic comedy, except we're sure this one is a classic that most of us have seen. A young woman, who's recreated her life in New York City, returns home to Alabama to finalize her divorce with her husband, who she's been separated from for seven years.
Reese takes the lead in this one, and stars alongside Patrick Dempsey and Josh Lucas. This film is definitely quirky, and you can expect a Legally Blonde vibe from Reese's character as she ventures back to Alabama.
2 Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) - $198.3 million
While we think Reese is a brilliant actress, usually the highest-grossing films are animated family flicks. Clearly, this is no exception. Reese Witherspoon is actually the main voice, playing Susan. Her character is transformed into a giant, on her wedding day, after being struck by a meteorite.
If that wasn't exciting enough, she joins a team of monsters to defeat an alien trying to take over the planet. This movie is actually pretty hilarious, and we definitely recommend it. Plus, it's got the voices of Rainn Wilson, Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Kiefer Sutherland, Paul Rudd, and many more.
1 Sing (2016) - $270.4 million
Of course, this bombshell's highest-grossing film is also an animated family film. Sing is quite brilliant, though, and takes place in a city of animals. When a theater is struggling to survive, the owner tries to save it by hosting a singing competition, but it becomes grander than he ever could have imagined.
With Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon as the leading voices, you'll also hear Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, and Jennifer Hudson. It was also nominated for Best Animated Motion Picture at the Golden Globes, so we think it's worth your time. Plus, there's a sequel coming, so you better get caught up.
