What sweet memories for Reese Witherspoon!

ET’s Cassie DiLaura sat down with the actress at the premiere of « Something From Tiffany’s, » where she discussed the parallels between her new rom-com and her iconic Tiffany moment in 2002’s « Sweet Home Alabama. »

« I think there’s something so magical about that Tiffany moment, » Witherspoon said. « I hear about it all the time, people say, that ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ moment, really sticks with people. I always love collaborating with the brand, because it’s just this beautiful, timeless, classic brand. and not everyone likes something in a little blue box?”

As for what she loved most about filming that « magical » scene at the beloved jewelry store — a scene she recreated in 2015 — Witherspoon told ET she had to have Tiffany all to herself .

« I think I was 24, and it was a night shoot, so we were up all night, and they had closed the whole store, so we were allowed to walk around and look at all the jewelry, everything, » said « The Morning Show » star. « And it was just magical. It was very magical. »

Witherspoon’s latest turn behind the camera brings the same sparkle, with « Something From Tiffany’s » bringing that rom-com magic to a new Christmas movie. In the film, which will be released on December 9, Zoey Deutch stars as a woman whose life is turned upside down when an engagement ring meant for someone else leads her to the person she’s meant to be with.

« It’s just a classic, sort of, incomprehensible Christmas movie, you have New York at Christmas, » said Witherspoon, who serves as executive producer on the project. « It’s just one of those movies that you want to sit down and watch over and over again. »

As the holiday season approaches, Witherspoon said she will be doing just that, as she and her family warm up by the fire.

« Oh, so much fun, » she said of how the holidays will be like back home. « We just bake a lot and sit cozy by the fire, I watched the Lindsay Lohan movie – loved it. Loved it. Stuff like that. Things that are like, cozy and Christmas and holidays .

« Something From Tiffany’s » premieres December 9 on Prime Video.
