Who knew Reese Witherspoon could have had a career as an event planner? The Oscar winner has revealed that she’ll be helping friend Sofia Vergara put together her wedding to fiancé Joe Manganiello. Reese told Extra’s Mario Lopez at the Oscars (Feb. 22) that she’s looking forward to her friend’s special day and is happily part of the circle of friends helping to plan the nuptials.
“We’ve already talked about the wedding, we have a lot of plans,” she said. “I gotta help, I’ve gotta be there for my girl! So I’m excited.”
The Oscar-winning actress and Modern Family star had plenty of time to become close friends when they co-starred on upcoming comedy Hot Pursuit, which is slated for a May release, and the pair clearly hit it off.
Reese added how charismatic and funny her friend and colleague is: “Oh my God! Sofia Vergara is so funny, as you know,” she said. “But I can’t wait for people to see her in the movie. It’s just a great new character for her to play and I think people will love it.”.
A date hasn’t yet been set for the Vergara-Manganiello nuptials, but Colombian actress Sofia is sure of one thing – her and Joe’s wedding is going to be "really big”.
“We’re trying to figure it out right now, because he’s working during the summer, and I’m kind of promoting the movie that I have with Reese Witherspoon,’ she told Extra’s Mario Lopez.

“Its gonna be crazy because we want to do something really big. We have to; we tried to make a small list and it didn’t work out.
“Oh my God, it’s gonna be insane,” the 42-year-old added. "We have to plan a lot so I don’t know if it’s going to be this summer”.
Hot Pursuit, originally titled Dont Mess With Texas, sees Reese play a police officer who must protect a drug dealer widow and criminal witness, played by Sofia. It also stars Sean Penn and Selma’s David Oyelowo.
