There’s something about the royals that makes everyone lose their cool – even Hollywood royalty as Reese Witherspoon.
The actress has said before that she did not follow and care much about the British royals until the day she was lucky enough to meet the Duchess of Cambridge back in 2011. Reese has dedicated a whole page to Kate Middleton in her new book ‘Whiskey in a Teacup,’ where she describes her as an “honorary Southern icon.”
“The scream that issued from my lips upon receiving [the invitation]—you would have thought I was going to die. I wake up early, mind you, but on that day I was up at 4am doing my hair. That’s early, even for me. ‘I’ve never seen you this excited,’ my husband said. He wasn’t kidding.”
“Jim took pictures of me in the car. You can see rays of happiness shooting out of my face. I love Kate Middleton that much. And she did not disappoint!”
“She was just lovely and warm, elegant and composed,” Reese revealed. “She also told a joke, and I immediately fell under her spell. She’s just as magnificent as she seems to be. She’s a very compassionate, socially conscious, deeply caring person.”
“It takes a very special person to decide to commit to that kind of life, to choose to be under public scrutiny every moment. Now that she’s in that position, her entire life is in service, forever. I am so in awe of that kind of dedication,” added Reese of what is really like to be in the company of the Duchess.
