Reese Witherspoon seems fun. I wouldn’t have pegged her as a celebrity likely to blossom under the gaze of social media and phone cameras, but based on her behavior at this week’s Met gala, she might be the next YouTube star.

Model Cara Delevingne turned her phone camera on an elevator full of celebrities at this week’s Met gala. While Zooey Deschanel just looked shy, Reese boldly stepped into the spotlight to offer her opinion. “If you force me to say your last name, I’ll be f—ed,” she says. “I don’t know your f—ing name. … Day-la-vig-ny?”

In the second video, Reese reveals that she thinks a woman’s name needs to be sensual. “[The most] important thing about a name for a girl is that a man can whisper it in his pillow,” she says. Sounds sexy, although sadly, I don’t think most parents consider pillow talk potential when they’re naming their baby girls.

The videos are below. Beware, Party Reese swears like a sailor. Don those headphones, unless you want to try to convince your boss you’re watching the unrated version of “Legally Blonde.”
