No actress has that Southern charm quite like Reese Witherspoon. The "Legally Blonde" actress was born Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon in New Orleans, but spent the first few years of her life in Germany. She and her parents finally settled in Nashville, Tenn., which is probably how she got that polite Southern accent that helped her score the role as June Carter Cash in "Walk the Line." A supporter of the Save the Children organization, Reese aided families affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2006.
