Sorry, Elle Woods. Truth-talking Reese Witherspoon is my new favorite character of hers.
Fans could assume things got a little crazy after the Met Gala earlier this week, but now we have proof, courtesy of supermodel Cara Delevingne. Earlier today Delevingne uploaded two quick videos to her Instagram account that showed herself, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Upton, and Reese “I’m a U.S. Citizen” Witherspoon in an elevator. Everyone appears a little tipsy, particularly Deschanel. (Maybe! Maybe she’s just being adorkable.)
The highlight of the quick vids consist of Witherspoon charmingly pointing out she can’t say Delevingne’s name properly, then dispensing this instantly-iconic gem: “Do you know what the most important thing in a name is, for a girl?” she asks with the perfect Southern twang as she’s walking out of the elevator. “That a man can whisper it in his pillow.”
Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon! I’m shocked. Not really; she sounds like a total delight here, and I hope she lets this side of her personality shine on her next press tour. Watch the NSFW (language!) videos below:
Likely because Witherspoon is America’s Sweetheart, the videos have since been removed from Delevingne’s account. Thanks to Vanity Fair for finding the videos on YouTube once Delevingne got cold feet.
