Sofia Vergara praises Reese Witherspoon’s curvy butt
Sofia Vergara thinks Reese Witherspoon has the “biggest butt of any white woman in Hollywood”.
The Modern Family star became close friends with Reese, 39, when they co-starred in crime caper movie Hot Pursuit earlier this year (15).
Reese was recognised for her illustrious career when she was presented with the American Cinematheque Award on Friday night (30Oct15).
As she accepted the prize, Reese was joined by a host of her actress friends, including Mexican star Sofia, who paid tribute to her pal on stage.
It wasn’t just Reese’s acting skills Sofia praised as she also had a few comments about the petite blonde’s physique.
“She has the best skin and the biggest butt of any white woman in Hollywood,” Sofia said. “You know, it's true—you have said it to me, too!"
Hot Pursuit told the story of Reese’s policewoman character and her attempts to transport Sofia’s character safely to court to testify against a renowned criminal.
The film saw both Reese and Sofia flex their comedic skills, and the pair formed a strong bond in the process.
Revealing she nicknamed petite Reese “My Little Pony”, Sofia added she was touched by the actress’ attempts to speak in Spanish when the pair promoted Hot Pursuit among the Hispanic media.
"She was so gracious that she even spoke in Spanish on live TV with a very weird accent but at least she was trying," Sofia told the audience. "It was embarrassing to me."
Kate Hudson was another famous face who took to the stage to pay tribute to Reese.
The 36-year-old actress grew up alongside Reese as a competitor in Hollywood. The pair soon became close friends when Kate was just 11, but the actress admits the rivalry has always formed part of her connection with Reese.
"I can't even tell you the number of times I'd call my agent and I 'd say, 'What happened with that audition?' and he'd be like, 'Well, it's between you and Reese,'" Kate said. "And the other thing that I always heard was, 'Well, Reese has the offer, but if she passes it may come to you.' So that's been my life!”
