Thanks to Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon was sent to the emergency room after filming a fight scene for their new film, Hot Pursuit. The two actresses were guests on Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and laughed about the incident that must have been a terrible experience for Reese.
As People magazine recaps, 39-year-old Witherspoon had to go into the hospital after she believed an appendix burst from a kick she suffered from Vergara, 42. She had some internal bleeding and had to have it looked into.
As it turned out, she had an ovary popped!
A smiling Sofia said about Reese, “She went to the emergency room. I sent her to the emergency room.”
Everyone knows how animated the Modern Family actress is, and she showed that while describing the fight scene.
“I push her and I push her, and I kept telling her, ‘I think I’m pushing you too hard,’ and she was like, ‘No do it real.’ “
Witherspoon said Vergara is “tough” and really goes for it when she’s in a scene. Vergara is good at physical comedy, as her fans can attest to.
Sofia further made fun of Reese’s attempt at speaking Spanish while they were having fun making the movie. Reese had to speak the language for Hot Pursuit and Vergara wasn’t exactly diplomatic when she critiqued her. In fact, she said her speaking skills were “horrible.”
Witherspoon said Vergara wasn’t even “nice about” what she said.
“She wasn’t even nice about it. She was like, ‘This is terrible. You sound terrible.’ And then we saw the whole movie and she goes, ‘You guys that speak Spanish because Spanish people, people think that’s so funny.’ “
Vergara said her favorite part of the movie was seeing her co-star speak Spanish. Clearly, she enjoys watching an American who might be a little rusty at speaking a foreign language attempt it.
Luckily, Reese Witherspoon wasn’t badly hurt, and they were able to pick up with filming, obviously. The comedic actresses talked more about their bonding experience. They had baking contests on the set while they filmed the movie, ABC News reports.
According to the movie’s official website, Hot Pursuit is about a “by-the-book cop” — played by Witherspoon — who tries to protect a “sexy and outgoing widow” — Sofia Vergara — “of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.”
Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon can be seen in Hot Pursuit when the film hits theaters on May 8.
