Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon’s father was John Draper Witherspoon, an ear, nose, and throat doctor who was serving in the United States Army Reserve as a lieutenant colonel when she was born. As a result, Reese spent four of years of her childhood in Wiesbaden, Germany. They would later return to the U.S. where she would spend the rest of her formative years in Nashville, Tennessee. As a Nashville teen, she would answer an open casting call on a whim at the age of 14 that earned her the lead role in The Man In The Moon.
