She’s been wowing audiences with her onscreen charisma, feisty personality, and irrepressible spirit since her auspicious debut in 1991’s The Man in the Moon, and has played some truly iconic characters, including Tracy Flick, Elle Woods, Melanie Smooter/Carmichael, and Annette Hargrove, as well as brought real women like Cheryl Strayed and June Carter Cash to life. She’s also racked up plenty of awards and nominations, started her own lifestyle brand, produced smash hits like Gone Girl and Big Little Lies, and become known for her philanthropy through several international children’s aid organizations. She’s even recorded a duet with Michael Bublé! It’s safe to say that Reese, who will soon be seen as Mrs. Whatsit in Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, is a real renaissance woman. We can’t see where her career takes her next!
