Hey, Reese Fans!
And who isn’t a fan of Reese Witherspoon? We definitely are here at Everything Summer Camp—after all, Reese was a summer camper herself back in the day! I posted about this beloved actress and how she attended Camp Monterey. I disclosed that information on the last Blog post I wrote about Reese from a number of years ago.
You can read the previous Blog post I wrote about her by clicking right here. Since it’s been so long since her last post, I thought we could revisit Reese to get to know her a little bit better.
Looking up to Dolly
Reese grew up in Nashville, Tennessee as well as her childhood hero: Dolly Parton. Reese would dream from a young age of someday becoming an entertainer of some sorts. After talking the only commercial agent in Nashville into representing her as a high schooler, Reese went out for a casting call for 1991’s ‘The Man in the Moon’—her film debut.
Reese Bookworm Witherspoon
Reese is a nerd!—a book nerd! And I mean that 100% as a compliment! The word ‘nerd’ doesn’t hold the same negative connotation that it once did and Reese definitely fits the bill. Reese actually has her own production company in which she attains the rights to books and turns them into movies (you know, every author’s dream)!
Not Least is Easter!
She offered the information in an interview with Vogue Magazine that her favorite holiday is Easter. With this holiday approaching soon, I thought I’d share her enjoyment of family time spent hiding plastic eggs on one another and gathering for a special meal.
We love the down-to-earth, family feel that Reese exudes. I hope these facts were new for all of you as well about a wonderful actress and former summer camper. If you have interest in checking out her old stomping grounds at Camp Monterey, give them a closer look some time. And, as always, thanks for reading.
