Even celebs aren’t immune to getting star-struck once in a while. Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon said she was so nervous about the prospect of meeting the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, at a fundraiser that she couldn’t even decide on what to wear!
The actress revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show (airing today) that “I must have tried on like six outfits. I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don’t know, maybe we can be friends.”
Of course, her excessive wardrobe planning prompted some teasing from her husband, Jim Toth. “My husband just thought I was so dorky,” said Witherspoon, whose new movie, This Means War, hits theaters today.
And when Ellen showed a picture of the actress positively beaming while chatting with Middleton, she explained, “Whenever I am super excited about things, my husband calls it the double-barrel. That’s when I smile so big I look like a child.” But who could blame her — she’s talking to royalty!
Naturally, the Duchess more than exceeded the star’s expectations. Witherspoon gushed, “She was really nice. She was lovely. She’s so composed. She seems like such a lady and I think it’s so nice nowadays to see someone with such nice composure [who] carries herself so beautifully.”
So is a possible friendship blossoming from their little rendezvous? Well, if there is, Reese is totally for it. She admitted on the show, “I would like to hang out. I’m not sure she wants to hang out with me. I could see that happening.” “Call me,” she added. “Call me anytime.”
