Reese has performed in movies before

Reese Witherspoon has confessed to being a secret Pitbull fan.

The actress – who is mum to Ava, 13, and Deacon, 9, from her marriage to Ryan Phillippe and 8-month-old Tennessee with second hubby Jim Toth – usually listens to country music but she admits that the rapper’s catchy songs get her dancing.

The other day I discovered this song by Pitbull, which I love,’ says Reese, 37.

I was singing along to that and dancing while I was preparing a meal in the kitchen. I think Ava and Deacon were almost shocked when they came in and saw me really rocking out.’

Reese showed off her impressive vocal skills when she starred as June Carter in Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line but she says she’d rather perform in her kitchen than in public.

There was a time after that film when I would get requests from school groups to sing, but I would never do that,’ the actress tells The Ticket.

Sometimes friends would ask me to sing a June Carter song if we’d had a few drinks together.

I prefer to restrict my singing appearances to my kitchen and to as small an audience as possible!’
