Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson
The ‘Water for Elephants’ actress tied the knot with Hollywood agent Jim Toth in a romantic ceremony last month and she was keen for the royal couple to attend so they would ask her to their highly-anticipated nuptials on April 29.
She told US TV show ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’: “I can’t even contain my enthusiasm for the royal wedding! I’m kind of bummed I’m not invited to the royal wedding. My girlfriend asked me if I was invited. Well, no, but I invited them to my wedding!”
While Britain’s future king and queen failed to attend, Reese – who has two children, Ava, 11, and seven-year-old Deacon, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe – says she enjoyed every minute of her big day.
She revealed: As my girlfriend says, ‘You only get married for the second time once!’
“It was so much fun. My daughter helped me pick out my dress. She was my maid of honour. It wasn’t stressful.”
Reese recently revealed she “didn’t have to think” before accepting Jim’s marriage proposal because she was absolutely certain she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.
She said: “I knew he was The One all right. A clue was when he asked me to marry him and I said yes right away. Didn’t have to think about it. It just feels like the right thing at the right time in my life.”
