Reese Witherspoon is a doting mother, an accomplished businesswoman, and has been one of the biggest names in Hollywood for well over a decade — but even the Oscar winner has flaws! (Well, at least one…)

In a recent TV interview, the 40-year-old let it slip that she had to quit a movie because she was unable to master a convincing Scottish accent.

The confessional aired on ITV's daytime show Lorraine, where Witherspoon sat down with Matthew McConaughey to promote their animated film Sing!

When Ross King asked the two actors about the hardest accents they've had to perform, the Legally Blonde star made the slip-up, saying:

"Scottish is really… I don't want to talk about it. I tried to do a Scottish accent once. It was bad. I had to quit the movie."

"The movie" in reference was Pixar's 2012 film Brave — which Reese was supposed to lend her voice to play the lead character Merida, but had to back out due to

Sweet, sweet revenge!

Following the Golden Globes on Sunday, Ben Affleck stopped by Jimmy Kimmel's late night show Monday to chat it up with the funnyman about the awards show.

While there were several notable moments during the presentation, the ONE thing Ben couldn't let go of was Casey Affleck's acceptance speech after winning Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama. That's because Casey forgot to thank his big bro!

Well after the Live By Night star vented and Jimmy pointed out that Ben thanked his little brother after winning his first Oscar, the older Affleck got even by sharing some embarrassing stories about his sibling! And being scared of butterflies is only the tip of the iceberg! LOLz!

But that wasn't the only exciting Globes moment the actor/director commented on as he also pointed out how asinine Donald Trump is for calling Meryl Streep "over-rated" following her speech blasting the President-elect. Couldn't agree more!

Ch-ch-check out Ben as he talks Casey not thanking him and gets even with his little bro (below)!

Every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces the films up for an Oscars — followed by the inevitable griping from fans over which actors were snubbed out of a well-deserved nomination.

This year will be no exception, as the big screen has been graced with far too many phenomenal performances in recent months for everyone to get the nod.

From Emma Stone's spellbinding performance as an aspiring actress in the musical La La Land to Denzel Washington's gripping portrayal of a self-loathing father who squashes his son's dreams in Fences, there are many solid frontrunners in this year's race.

Ben Affleck, Zac Efron, & 'Hillary Clinton' Are Up For Razzies! See The Shameful Shortlist!

no title

Every year, there are a TON of award shows that honor the best of the best in movies and film — and thankfully the Razzies also come around annually to give trophies to the worst of the WORST!

While we still won't know the finalists for the anti-Oscars, known as the Golden Raspberry Awards — Razzies for short — we now have the shameful shortlist of nominees!

Zac Efron made it onto the shortlist for his role in the critically maligned Dirty Grandpa, and Ben Affleck might be a finalist for his role in Batman v Superman! BTW, BvS was nominated in EVERY category except Worst Actress! OUCH!

Hillary Clinton even made the tentative list of nominees… well kind of. The "documentary" Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party received several nominations, including one for Becky Turner, who plays her in the propaganda piece movie. One critic described the movie as "piggybacking a baseless personal attack onto a pseudo history lesson"; we're sure the real Hillary would LOVE to see this flick named one of the worst.

Ch-ch-check out the shortlist of nominees (below) as we wait for the FINAL list that will drop January 23 — only a day before the Oscar nominations announcement!

Despite the mother/daughter duo's fame, no celebrities will be giving a eulogy at the private service held at Fisher and Reynolds' Beverly Hills compound. In case you forgot, the pair were next-door neighbors.

Not to mention, Carrie's daughter Billie Lourd will speak ONLY if she feels up for it. This seems to be the case since Billie and the rest of her fam are planning an epic public memorial service — where Meryl Streep has been asked to
