Playing FLASHBACK: A 15-Year-Old Reese Witherspoon Spills About Her First Kiss

Reese Witherspoon could win her second best actress Oscar for her role in Wild -- but back in 1991, she was the bright-eyed 15-year-old starring in her very first movie, The Man in the Moon. ET sat down with the young actress, just before the movie was released.

The young actress shared her first on-screen kiss in the film with co-star Jason London, which had Reese reminiscing about her first real-life smooch.

"My first was in a roller-skating rink," said Reese. "I was 12 years old, and I had a boyfriend, and his name was Graham, and he was a pretty good kisser -- pretty good, Graham!"

Way to go, Graham! But navigating Hollywood wasn't always easy for the young actress.

"It's tough sometimes because people want to make you have all these big decisions and stuff -- that you want to do this script, and you want to do that, and finally I just sit down and say, 'I don't know I'm 15 years old, you figure it out for me!" said Reese "You're not a kid anymore. You have to act like a kid, but you're not a kid anymore."
