Reese Witherspoon Shares Rare Throwback Photo in Honor of the Super Bowl

She’s an actress, a fashion designer and a mother to three children—Ava (19), Deacon (15) and Tennessee (6). But did you know that Reese Witherspoon is also a former football player?

In honor of yesterday’s Super Bowl LIII, the Big Little Lies star, 42, shared a throwback photo on Twitter that proves her talents are limitless. The pic features a young Witherspoon wearing a “Deer View” football jersey with the number “88” plastered across her chest, and we can’t help but wonder whose idea it was to join the team.

She captioned the post, “Who’s ready for the #SuperBowl? #putmeincoach #throwback #1992.”

Witherspoon shared the photo moments before the Los Angeles Rams took on the New England Patriots. The game took place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, and saw the Patriots defeat the Rams with a final score of 13 to 3. *Sigh*

The Super Bowl was attended by a slew of familiar faces, including Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bündchen, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rebel Wilson, Russell Wilson, Ciara, Jon Bon Jovi, Ludacris, Ellie Kemper and Kevin Hart.

Although Witherspoon didn’t attend the game, it appears she already has her game face on lock.
