Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon has admitted to our very own Lorraine Kelly that she has a weakness… Accents! Particularly, the Scottish brogue.

She made the revelation during an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine, alongside her Sing co-star Matthew McConaughey.

Showbiz reporter Ross King asked Reese and Matthew about the most difficult accents to get right.

Reese suggested South African and Matthew suggested Russian, before Reese went to on say she thought Scottish might be the trickiest.

She laughed: “Scottish, I was supposed to … I don’t even wanna talk about it.

“I tried to do a Scottish accent once, it was bad, I had to quit the movie…”

“It’s not my finest moment! No, I don’t wanna talk about it any more.

“That just came out and I really wish it hadn’t!”

It remains a mystery which film Reese tried to master a Scottish accent for.
