Reese Witherspoon’s Mum Betty Wholesomely Struggles to Name Her Favourite Reese Movie

Hollywood star, entrepreneur and human ray of sunshine Reese Witherspoon has had quite the career hasn’t she? From her Desperate Choices, Election and Legally Blonde days in the early 90s and 2000s to her more recent dramatic roles in The Morning Show and Big Little Lies, her credits are seriously extensive and seriously impressive!

So it makes sense that her wonderful mum and number one supporter Betty might struggle to choose which one of Reese’s movies are her favourites…I mean, really, how can anyone possibly choose?


“I like the Morning Show,” Betty says in an adorable video shared to Instagram on Mother’s Day.

“I like Jennifer Aniston. And I like Reese Witherspoon. But I.. there’s a lot of conflict on that show,” she adds, back-peddling on whether that’s her favourite afterall.

Betty goes on to think and hesitate about the right answer, and after some cricket-chirping sounds play in the background and some lol-worthy glances at the camera by Reese, she does comes up with a favourite:

“Walk the Line and I liked Wild.” But that soon changes to: “the comedies are cute, funny. Legally Blonde was funny.”


Reese proceeds to ask if she should do more comedies and mama Betty wholeheartedly agrees: “I think you’re great at comedy also.”

And then Betty is asked where Reese gets her sense of humour from. That’s when it all becomes crystal clear…

“Your uncle,” Betty answers deadpan.

“Really? I thought I got it from you?” Reese laughs to which Betty responds, “yeah it’s probably me.”
