- Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington revealed that they both auditioned for parts in the 1995 film Clueless, which ultimately starred Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, Paul Rudd, and Brittany Murphy.
- The Little Fires Everywhere leads also shared that they first met while workshopping and reading scripts at Leonardo DiCaprio's house.
Could you imagine what Clueless would've looked like with a young Reese Witherspoon or Kerry Washington? The accomplished actresses, who are now starring in Hulu's Little Fires Everywhere, shared that they once contended for roles in the iconic '90s comedy that ultimately starred Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, Brittany Murphy, and Paul Rudd.
"One thing that is public and it came out last year, I auditioned so hard for Clueless and I didn’t get it," Witherspoon told Buzzfeed in a video interview.
"Really?" Washington replied. "I did too!" They didn't share what roles they were vying for, though.
The Scandal alum used the coincidence to propose a fun idea: "We should do like a remake."
"Recreate a scene from Clueless!" Witherspoon answered. "That would be so fun!"
Washington also shared how she first met her current costar. "I will say that Reese and I met at a kind of workshopping, reading, working of a script at Leonardo DiCaprio's house—just a little name drop," she said. "And it was for a movie that eventually went, but neither of us was in it."
"Neither was Leo," Witherspoon laughed.
Imagine saying no to Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, and Leonardo DiCaprio? Way harsh, Tai.
