Reese Witherspoon Auditioned to Be Cher in 'Clueless'

Reese Witherspoon Auditioned to Be Cher in 'Clueless'

Reese Witherspoon is pretty in pink while posing with model Alessandra Ambrosio at the launch of Christian Louboutin‘s new boutique at the Brentwood Country Mart on Thursday (June 11) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 39-year-old actress was also joined by Molly Sims and Karolina Kurkova at the event.

Clueless writer/director Amy Heckerling just revealed that Alicia Silverstone is not the only actress she saw for the role of Cher. Reese, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tiffani Thiessen, Keri Russell, and Alicia Witt were all in the running too.

“I met with Reese because everyone said, ‘This girl’s amazing. She’s going to be huge.’ I saw some movie where she had a southern accent. Maybe it was on TV, a movie of the week. But I did see some scenes of hers and went: Wow. She’s amazing. But Alicia is Cher,” Amy told Vanity Fair.

DO YOU THINK Reese Witherspoon would have been a good Cher in Clueless?

FYI: Reese is wearing a Roland Mouret dress, Christian Loubotin shoes, and vintage jewels.
