Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel and Kate Upton struggled to pronounce Cara Delevingne’s name when they were riding an elevator together during the Met Ball festivities earlier in the week.

Reese Witherspoon Can't Say Delevingne

“If you force me to say your last name, I’ll be f—ked,” said Witherspon in the first video before making a poor attempt. Fellow elevator riders Deschanel and Upton then tried unsuccessfully to say both the super model’s first and last name, with Upton at one point saying, “Karen! We don’t know.”

In the second video, Witherspoon, sounding like her Sweet Home Alabama character Melanie Smooter, says “I love you Kara, Cara. I don' t know what your f–king name is," adding that her last name is “super French” and then somewhat seductively pronouncing it correctly in a whisper.

Still stuck on the aspiring actress’ name, Witherspoon added, "You know what's the most important thing in a name – for a girl? It's that a man can whisper it into his pillow.”

Then, remembering that Delevingne has most recently been linked to Fast & Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez, Witherspoon added, “or a girl,” as the star-studded group exited the elevator.

The videos, posted by Delevingne, have been removed from Instagram, possibly by request of Witherspoon’s management.
