Watch: Reese Witherspoon Tries to Pronounce Cara Delevingne’s Name to No Avail



Reese Witherspoon might be a big time movie star, but at heart, she's a simple southern girl. Yeah, she might be on Hollywood's A-List, but that doesn't mean she's one to put on airs. Not even at the Met Gala (post-Met Gala?), surrounded by a slew of posh international comrades.

Cara Delevingne posted a video to her Instagram earlier of the actress, who clearly had a great time at the event, in an elevator with Zooey Deschanel, Kate Upton and a few others. In the clip, the actress tries desperately to pronounce Delevingne's admittedly tricky name. Witherspoon first calls her 'Cara,' with her country twang, but then quickly corrects herself with the proper British pronunciation, which would be 'Cah-rah.'"

"I don't know what your f****n' name is," Reese quipped, then went on to try and pronounce Delevingne. "That's super French," she said, then whispered, "Day-lah-veen."

In a second video posted by Ms. Day-lah-whatever, Witherspoon announces, "If you force me to pronounce your last name, I'm going to be f***d!" Cara eggs her on, and the result is priceless. "Day-lah-vingy," says Witherspoon.

"We don't know," Upton chimed in. Yeah… they're not the only ones!

Watch both hilarious exchanges above and below.
