Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon has quite a bit to smile about this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Witherspoon stars with Vince Vaughn in the new romantic comedy, “Four Christmases” and it’s the number one movie in the country.

Witherspoon won the best actress Oscar in 2006 for playing June Carter in “Walk the Line.” Nevertheless, the actress knows her way around a chick flick. The Tennessee native’s breakout film was the 2001 comedy, “Legally Blonde.”  The next year, she had another hit with the romantic comedy, “Sweet Home Alabama.”

Witherspoon’s latest film, “Four Christmases” brought a lot of holiday cheer to the box office with an estimated $31.7 million debut. The family animated film, “Bolt” took second with around $26.6 million, followed closely by the vampire romance, “Twilight” in third with $26.4 million, “Quantum of Solace” in fourth with $19.5 million and rounding out the top five another new film, the Nicole Kidman-Hugh Jackson epic adventure, “Australia “with $14.8 million.
