Cheryl Strayed, the author who Witherspoon portrayed in the 2014 film Wild, wrote on Instagram, "Happy birthday to this glorious woman! I love you wildly, dear @reesewitherspoon and I'm so grateful for the light you shine in my life and so many lives."

Alyssa Milano, who was in 1996's Fear with Witherspoon, honored the actress with a throwback photo. "Happy Birthday to this magical unicorn. Love you, lady! You continue to inspire me all these years later. So grateful there is you," wrote Milano, 50, as Witherspoon responded on her Instagram Story: "What a throwback!! love you."

During a 2021 InStyle interview with Gayle King, Witherspoon explained that with age she has realized nothing is more important than family time. The star is married to husband Jim Toth and has three kids: daughter Ava, 23, and sons Deacon, 19, and Tennessee, 10.

"More time with people I love. I'm 45. I know who I want to spend time with and who I don't," she said at the time. "And that is one of the great things about getting older — it just clears out so much space. I want to be with my mom, my kids, and the people who fill my tank. And everybody else, I wish them well."
