Inside Reese Witherspoon’s Epic 40th Birthday Bash

Today is Reese Witherspoon’s 40th birthday, and on Saturday night the actress threw quite the party to celebrate.

Flying into LA with her husband, Jim Toth and extended family, Reese rounded up her possy of A-list pals for a birthday ‘do to remember.

On the guestlist included –deep breath– Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Courtney Cox, Isla Fisher, Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, Robert Downey Jnr, Jason Bateman and Toby Maguire. Wow! Reese is clearly one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood!

Luckily for us we were kept in the loop with what went down thanks to the powers of social media – Reese and her celeb mates shared the night via Snapchat and Instagram.

Reese started the night off by sharing with her fans a sneak peek at her outfit from the back of the cab. The Legally Blonde star looked gorgeous in a sparkly mini dress and this season’s ‘it’ shoe, the gold Gucci mules. Jealous, us?


Riding to the party with her mum, Reese shared a hilarious video of the duo complete with sunglasses and disco ball.


The entertainment did not dissapoint, natch. Yep, Reese enlisted the help of none other than Taylor Swift to mark the end of her 30s. Taylor performed a number of her hits before joining in on the celebrations.


After Taylor’s performance Reese herself took to the stage to sing a rendition of Sweet Home Alabama with country singer and Nicole Kidman’s wife, Keith Urban. Of course she did!


Kate Hudson was not shy in sharing what good a night she’d had at Reese’s ‘do. Kate shared a collage of snaps on Insta with the caption: “When you take a shit load of pictures and you still don’t have it perfect so you go for the ole collage post….
Happy Birthday gorgeous girl@reesewitherspoon !!!”


What a party! Who reckons there were some sore heads in Hollywood last Sunday?
