Is Reese Witherspoon the most fun actress in Hollywood right now? It sorta seems like it if you pay any attention to the Internet. The actress has always been likable in films like Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama, but recently she’s become a viral-video sensation due to leaked videos of herself in an elevator at May’s Metropolitan Costume Gala and weeks later singing onstage at a charity event with Kenny Chesney. Earlier this week, Witherspoon was filmed and photographed having a good ol’ time at a wedding event in Capri, Italy. Basically, the takeaway is that Reese is not only a great actress but the A-lister you most want at your event.
EW talked to the actress for this week’s Fall Movie Preview—Witherspoon appears in three movies this fall including the Oscar-buzzy Wild and produced the highly anticipated Gone Girl—about being caught on camera having a good time. “I have to say I am a lot of fun to hang out with,” says the Academy Award-winner, who admitted she had no idea these videos had become so popular. “People go, ‘You’re really fun!’ And I’m like, ‘Was I not fun before?’ I like to have fun and I enjoy it, man. I would wanna sit next to me at an awards show!”
