Most days, I feel like I have given up on having much faith when it comes to celebrities. If these past two years have taught us anything, it's that we are all truly just trying our best to make it through the day, and I don't need millionaires complaining about their rich people problems.

Of course, there are a select few amounts of people who don't fall into this category, and Ms. Reese Witherspoon is one of them.

I mean come on — who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon.

If you had asked me yesterday if I was one of her biggest fans, I would have said absolutely. I've seen all of her movies, read all of her book recommendations, and even try to wear floral dresses more in honor of her.

However, it seems I was completely lying to myself.

It seems I have been in the dark about one of the most important parts of her — her own stinkin' first name!

Yep, that's right — Reese Witherspoon is her last name.

I know, right? BUT STICK WITH ME!

Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon has been going by her last name since entering show biz all those years ago, and honestly — that's kind of iconic.

The last name Reese belongs to the actress' mom, while Witherspoon (obviously) belongs to her dad.

We love a hyphenated last name, especially ones as cool as Reese friggen Witherspoon.

Would you look at that — you learn something new every day!
