Reese Witherspoon Wants to Do a Buddy Comedy with Jennifer Garner (Exclusive)
Reese Witherspoon stepped out Thursday for the premiere of "The Last Thing He Told Me,” marking her first red-carpet appearance since filing for divorce from James Toth.
Witherspoon was all smiles supporting her good friend Jennifer Garner, who stars in the seven-part series about a woman who forms a bond with her stepdaughter while searching for the truth behind her husband’s disappearance.
“Extra’s” Melvin Robert caught up with Reese on the carpet and asked about Jen going on a letter-writing campaign to get the job .
Reese insisted, “She didn’t have to… When I heard she wanted to do it I was like, ‘Yes.’ I’ve been such a fan of hers for so long. But she’s also a dear friend.
Both women served as executive producers on the show alongside Lauren Neustadter, and Reese’s Hello Sunshine media company collaborated with Apple TV+ on the thriller.
Talking about Jen and her role, Reese said, “What I know about her to be so true, she is such a leader. Such a woman who steps up to any challenge. And I think you see that in this part. I mean she will do anything to figure out where her husband has gone and take care of her stepdaughter.”

“The Last Thing He Told Me” is streaming on AppleTV+.
