Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Laura Linney and Megan Mullally have realised their dreams with a little help from America's INSTYLE magazine - by meeting their inspirations.

In a photoshoot, called INSPIRATIONS, in the new issue of the glossy style magazine, stars of stage and screen were asked to name the people who inspired them to act and then paired up with them.

Witherspoon chose her Vanity Fair director Mira Nair, Linney Meryl Streep and WILL + GRACE star Mullally rocked out with Yoko Ono.

Also included in the spread were Aaron Eckhart with his mentor JEFF BRIDGES, Blair Underwood with Sidney Poitier, Topher Grace with his Wonder Boys co-star Michael Douglas and Marisa Tomei with her heroine Gena Rowlands.
