Reese Witherspoon took the stage at the Beat the Odds Awards sponsored by The Children's Defense Fund, joined by a handful of other celebs in LA Thursday night. She's been busy promoting Four Christmases but it must have been nice to take a break and start getting into the spirit of giving back. Her romantic comedy has been a hit at the box office so far, proving that Reese deserves her spot as the third highest paid actress in Hollywood. She's down two slots from taking the title last year, thanks to Angelina at No. 1 and Julia Roberts at No. 2, but having a hit movie at the end of 2008 sounds like the perfect way to climb back to the top next year.
