Reese Witherspoon's Girl Crush Makes Her Even More Lovable (VIDEO)

reese witherspoon on ellenEllen DeGeneres certainly has a way of bringing out the best and most real side of Hollywood stars. Her latest feat: Getting Reese Witherspoon to dish about her exciting experience preparing to meet the Duchess of Cambridge. Believe it or not, the A-lister was a ball of nerves before meeting Kate Middleton!

Reese, who appears on Ellen today to promote her new flick This Means War, explained how she flipped when she was approached to meet Kate and Wills at a charity event. "I was like, 'Yes!' -- my husband just thought I was so dorky. He was like, 'Why are you so excited?'" Awww. It's because Reese is such a down-to-earth, sweet person and a class act, that's why! 


Maybe some celebs think they've simply met and seen and done so much around the globe that they think they're on par with the Windsors or that they shouldn't exactly get all worked up about a meeting with the young royal newlyweds. But Reese isn't the average Hollywood snob. She knew it was a big, important deal to "meet a princess," and so she was sufficiently starstruck.

In her one-on-one with Ellen, Reese explained:

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. So we went and it’s always funny. 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.

Too, too cute! I also love that she also told Ellen that she "would like to hang out" with Kate. She said, "I’m not sure she wants to hang out with me, [but] I could see that happening." Sounds like someone has a friend/girl crush! (Then again, who wouldn't feel that way about the Duchess? Judging from what we know about her, she seems like a good time.)

But all in all, it's so refreshing to see a celebrity being as real and unpretentious as Reese. Her hubby shouldn't judge, as her attitude sounds like the perfect way to ultimately strike up a friendship with the royal couple. Move over Posh Spice -- Reese is movin' in!
