Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon

Today’s birthday girl is Reese Witherspoon.

I wanted to call Witherspoon her generation’s Doris Day.  Curiously, the actresses share the same zodiac sign.  But after thinking about the part they played in popular culture, Witherspoon really doesn’t fit that description as aptly as her fellow Aries, Sarah Jessica Parker.  Parker’s “Carrie Bradshaw” is more akin to Day’s numerous roles as a sex-crazy career girl.

That leaves me wondering whom I should compare Witherspoon to.  Bette Davis?  Nope.  Joan Crawford?  Nope.  Maybe I’ll get back to you on this one . . .

  1. A girlier Rosalind Russell? I’ve been thinking way too much about this.

    • No. That’s not it, either.

  2. You were right the first time. Reese is like a modern-day Doris Day. Doris didn’t play sex-crazed. She played the girl next door, just like Reese. Films like Touch of Mink or Pillow Talk or Glass bottom Boat–many of the 60’s films.
