    Here we are going to share some information about the actress' net worth, earnings, career, and awards. 

    Reese Witherspoon's net worth and earnings

    As of 2018, Reese has an estimated net worth of $85 million, but some sources claim that her estimated net worth is $120 million. We are not sure where the figures have been extracted from. 

    Nevertheless, the actress' estimated net worth back in 2017 was $80 million, while she is reported to have an annual salary of $9.4 million. 

    Taking a closer look at the earnings from films, her biggest pay cheque was for her portrayal of Elle Woods in 2003's Legally Blondes 2: Red, White & Blondes. For the role, she received a hefty pay cheque of $15 million which marked her as one of the Highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. She held a place in the list from 2002 to 2010 without missing a year. Her earnings also ranged between $15 to $30 million in the late 2000's. 

    Moreover, in 2007, she became the highest-paid actress in the American industry, receiving $15 to $20 million per film. But after 2010, the movies she started to appear in fared poorly and in the years 2011, 2012 and 2013, she was marked as one of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood. 

    Likewise, some of her earnings from other films like How Do You Know, Four Christmases, Gone Girls, and Wild are $15 million, $14 million, $216,091 and $138,581 respectively. She also earned $12.5 million and $15 million for her roles in Sweet Home Alabama and Vanity Fair

    On TV, Resse and her co-star Nicole Kidman reportedly received $1 million for each episode of Big Little Lies. 

    Witherspoon indeed makes the majority of her earning through her career as an actress, but the actress also receives a fair amount of endorsement deals and sponsorships. Back in the late 2000's and early 2010's, when the actress was at the peak of her career, she attracted many endorsement deals. She appeared on numerous covers of magazines and even launched her own fragrance line.

    During those days, Reese earned more than $2 million per annum by endorsing products. But as of 2018, it is fair enough to say that her earnings through these deals have decreased drastically.
