Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon has fled Hollywood and moved back home to Charleston, South Carolina with her two children.

Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon has fled Hollywood and moved back home to Charleston, South Carolina with her two children.

Witherspoon announced she was separating from husband Ryan Phillippe in October, after seven years of marriage.

The couple have two children, Ava Elizabeth, seven, and Deacon, three.

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.

The Walk The Line star recently claimed she was coping with life after the split saying: "I'm doing fine. I'm getting out a little more now. You'll be seeing more of me."
