Reese Witherspoon Dishes on 'Big Little Lies' Season 2, Teases Her Mom Betty About Her Celebrity Crush


Reese Witherspoon brought the best date to her taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show -- her mom, Betty Reese! The Big Little Lies actress, 41, took to Instagram Stories on the way to the show, sharing videos with Betty in the car.

"Mom, are you going to be ok if I tell Ellen who your celebrity crush is?" Reese asked.

"No, don't tell anybody,” Betty insisted.


But Reese was able to convince her mom in another video, saying, "Mom, everyone on Instagram wants to know who your celebrity crush is."

"Charlie, Charlie Who-Nam,” Betty revealed.

"Charlie Hunnam?" Reese asked.

"Hunnam! King Arthur,” Betty explained.

"And why do you like Charlie Hunnam?" Reese asked.

"Because he's King Arthur, and I'm Queen Elizabeth," Betty quipped as Reese laughed.

And Reese made sure to call out her mom once she was on the show. In addition to her inappropriate texts, Betty also likes to hit on men at the Apple Store Genius Bar.

When one expert asked Betty about her storage, Reese noted that her mom had an epic response.

“She said, ‘Don’t worry, I keep all my nude selfies in the Cloud,’” she joked.

Betty’s a big fan of her daughter’s HBO show, mostly because it has “lots of sex.” So can Betty (and the rest of us) expect a second season of Big Little Lies?

“We hope so! Nicole [Kidman] and I produced it, as well, so we’ve been talking to the writer, Lianne Moriarty, who wrote the book about, just new ideas and what these characters could do. It seems like people just love the characters, so hopefully we could go on!” Reese said.
