Reese Witherspoon thinks Tracy Flick would be running the Tea Party now

Posted on

Reese Witherspoon thinks that Tracy Flick, that eager student politician she played in Alexander Payne’s Election back in 1999, would probably be in charge of the Tea Party today. She revealed that and more in a 73 Questions video for Vogue, which she also covers for October, continuing to make the case, as she did for EW, that she is “a lot of fun to hang out with.”

What are some other things we learned about Witherspoon from this video? Well, she can do a backflip on a trampoline, and the following: She would invite “all the female senators” over if she were hosting her ideal dinner party. She’d cook lasagna and talk about why there aren’t more female senators. If she were a hip hop artist, her stage name would be “Little Spoon.” She would love to make a cameo on Girls. (Make this happen, Lena.) The movie that made her cry from laughter is Bad Grandpa. She thinks the cutest thing on planet Earth is “babies in their Halloween costumes.” Her favorite song lyrics are “all the immediate unknowns are better than knowing a tired and lonely fate,” from Rilo Kiley’s “Does He Love You?”

Good choice, Reese.
