Witherspoon announced she was separating from husband Ryan Phillippe in October, after seven years of marriage.
The couple have two children, Ava Elizabeth, 7, and Deacon, 3.
According to New York Post columnist Liz Smith, the star was thoroughly disgusted with both marriage and her life in Hollywood and wanted to return to her Southern roots.
Witherspoon moved back to Charleston to be closer to her family and has enrolled both of her children in local public schools.
Reese recently said, "I’m doing fine. I’m getting out a little more now. You’ll be seeing more of me."
