Noha Hamid, the fan who mistook Witherspoon for Underwood, posted a TikTok video response, explaining the incident and even sharing photos of the actress to prove she was the one to approach her.
"The craziest thing just happened! I'm with my husband in Nashville, Tennessee, eating at a barbecue place. I swear I see this lady with her husband and kid and I'm like, 'That looks just like a celebrity and I'm trying to think of who, and I'm like, 'Oh, Carrie Underwood?'" Hamid explained.
Noting that Witherspoon was wearing "a big cowboy hat, kind of a mask," so she couldn't see her well, she added that she even Googled Underwood and discovered she lived near Nashville.
"So I wait till she kind of goes back to her car so I can ask her if it's her, not to blow her cover, and then she's like, 'Hey, oh no, I'm not Carrie Underwood, but have a great day!' And I'm like, 'Oh, that's totally her and she's just lying,'" Hamid continued. "I go back and I think about it and I'm like, 'Oh my god, that's Reese Witherspoon.'"
OMGGGG! That was ME. Haha, I swear when I walked away I was like wait, that was totally Reese Witherspoon! I could barley see your face cause the mask and hat but I knew you looked so familiar haha. I LOVE YOU ❤️ @ReeseWpic.twitter.com/Kvy9RcDtMv
