Who’da thought it? But in the topsy-turvy world of celebrity, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara are now officially BFFs.

The 42-year-old Colombian and the 39-year-old Louisiana-native have been spending an incredible amount of time together in recent months — delightfully posting dozens of snaps of their outings to social media.

Reese and Sofia were at the Met Ball this week


The duo grew close during the filming of Hot Pursuit — the Anne Fletcher-directed movie released earlier this year to disastrous reviews. Still, the unfavourable response hasn’t put a dampener on their friendship. Indeed, just this week Reese and Sofia were snuggling up to one another at the Met Ball in New York.

Yesterday, Reese launched her much-hyped website, Draper James, which sells clothing, accessories, homeware items, and stationary. It proved to be a huge success too; within hours, many of the items had already sold out.

Meanwhile, Sofia is currently locked in a legal battle with her former fiancé Nick Loeb over embryos they had frozen during their relationship. She’s now moved on to Joe Manganiello, whom she is due to marry later this year, and wants the embryos destroyed — against Nick’s wishes.
