Tig Notaro Reveals She Once Had A Pretty Awkward Meeting With Reese Witherspoon

Tig Notaro really doesn’t recognize too many celebs.

Notaro explained how she and her wife Stephanie had been attending a meeting with Reese Witherspoon when she proved just how little she knows about the world of showbiz.

Appearing on Wednesday’s “Late Show”, Notaro revealed how Witherspoon was talking about being the shortest cast member of “Big Little Lies”.

The “Legally Blonde” actress explained how Nicole Kidman was 5 foot 11 and Shailene Woodley was 5 foot 8. However, Notaro thought Witherspoon meant Kidman “leans” 5 foot 8, and so told a story about how her ex used to hunch over as she was conscious about her height.

As Stephen Colbert looked at the comedian with a confused expression, Notaro told him: “Your response is very similar to Reese’s response.”

“[My wife said] ‘What in the hell were you talking about in there?’ That’s when I realized that I didn’t know there’s an actress named Shailene.

“What I heard was Nicole Kidman’s 5 foot 11 and she leans 5 foot 8.”

“The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on Global.
