Reese Witherspoon Throws It Back

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

Since the ’90s,  the stunning, adorable and of course seriously talented Reese Witherspoon has come a very long way. But that doesn’t mean in any way that she’s completely over the past, and doesn’t love a good nostalgic throwback moment like the rest of us….

Her latest throwback photograph takes us all the way back to 1998 when she played in Pleasantville, starring side by side with Tobey Maguire.  She shared an iconic photo from an issue of Teen People, making it a double throwback since the magazine unfortunately came to an end in 2006.

The ’90s photo is also seriously nostalgic in that Reese’s hairstyles represent the beauty trends of the time in the best and most spot on way possible.  Most of us, stars included are likely to cringe and try to hide the fact that we once looked like this, but Reese decided to laugh about it rather than be embarrassed, and it’s more than epic.
