Reese Witherspoon told Jimmy Kimmel that her sons sent "trash-talking" videos to Ashton Kutcher.
She and Kutcher were trying to get to know each other before shooting "Your Place or Mine."
Witherspoon said her children got involved and mocked his favorite NFL team, the Chicago Bears.
Reese Witherspoon said that her children taunted her "Your Place Or Mine" costar Ashton Kutcher over his love of the Chicago Bears.
Witherspoon and Kutcher play best friends in the upcoming Netflix rom-com, and while promoting the movie on Thursday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Witherspoon explained that they made an effort to get to know each other after being cast in the movie in order to act like lifelong friends.
The "Legally Blonde" star recalled: "We didn't really know each other when we started the movie so about a month before we started, I FaceTimed him and I said, 'You know what. I think we kind of need to get to know each other because in the movie we have known each other for 20 years. Like, we've literally known every boyfriend, girlfriend, every bad story, good story, about our parents, everything.'"
"He was like, 'Okay what do you want to do?'" Witherspoon continued. "And I was like, 'Every day I want you to send me a video of something about your life, and I'm going to send you a video of something about my life.' And so we did. It was really fun because you got to see my dogs, and he got to see me drinking on the front porch talking shit."
Witherspoon said that during this activity her two sons started to appear in the videos and "trash talk" his favorite NFL team, the Chicago Bears.
"My kids started getting into it and so my kids started trash-talking his NFL team too," she said. " Because he's a big Bears fan, right? And one of my sons is an [Philadelphia] Eagles fan and one of my sons is a [Pittsburgh] Steelers fan. No one is a Bears fan in my house. So, the trash-talking my boys were doing, and then [Kutcher] just gave it right back to them."
Witherspoon also recalled one of her few encounters with Kutcher before they were cast in the film. She said she met him at a party where the "That '70s Show" actor brought his own cooler to drink out of.
"I saw him walking through this party. He came in, you know, he's so handsome, he's so tall, he's so from Iowa. And he's just a really cute guy and he walked in, and he was with somebody, and he had a cooler," Witherspoon said. "I thought, 'That's interesting, he brings his own [drinks to parties].'"
"Your Place or Mine" premieres on Netflix on February 10.
