Reese Witherspoon returned to her old Stanford dorm last week to talk to the students of the University's Graduate School of Business. However, the celebrity decided to go on a little side trip.
Apparently, per E News, Reese Witherspoon went to her old dorm at Stanford University. For the record, she attended the Ivy League in the mid-1990s. What is more interesting is that she met a lucky student, who is as beautiful as her, named Caitlyn.
Caitlyn is the new resident in the old dorm of Reese Witherspoon. The latter eventually posted a photo of her trip down memory lane on her official Instagram account. Alongside a photo of her and Caitlyn, the 41-year-old actress said that Caitlyn was "so nice" that she even "welcomed her in".
Famous for the name Elle Woods, a movie character, Witherspoon is also an entrepreneur and a producer now. Her professional screen debut happened in 1991 with the movie "The Man in the Moon". In it, she was nominated for a Young Artist Award.
The following year, she took a role in "Desperate Choices: To Save My Child" and "Jack the Bear". On the other hand, Witherspoon starred in the comedy-drama "Pleasantville" in 1998. This time, she won the Young Hollywood Award for Breakthrough Performance. Nevertheless, her biggest break probably is Elle Woods in the 2001 film "Legally Blonde", wherein she got her second Golden Globe nomination.
According to Today, Witherspoon was an English Literature major. However, she was not able to finish her studies because she had to focus on her acting career. Well, it is now safe to say that things really worked out for her.
The "Big Little Lies" star went back to Stanford University to take part in the school's "View From the Top" speaker series. In it, famous and well-respected members of the community share advice and lessons with the University's current students. Stanford Graduate School of Business also shared a photo of Witherspoon on Instagram during her session. In the end, the actress told the graduates via Twitter to "keep dreaming big."
