3. Reese Witherspoon
One redditor worked as a background extra on the set of How Do You Know, which was were they had a wonderful run in with Reese Witherspoon. "I had my dog, Don Corleone (the dog-father) with me, as I was playing a dog walker. Owen Wilson, bless his heart, was very into his lines, repeating them over and over to himself. This was only weird for me because I was standing with him, Reese, and Reese's makeup lady," they shared.

"I don't know if you've ever been an extra, but the bottom line is, you're treated like cattle. Actors will rarely if ever talk to you. Which is fine! It's not their job to chat up the extras. Reese came up to pet my dog, asked his name, and we talked for the whole night shoot. Her makeup lady consistently told her not to pet the dog, which made her pet the dog more, rub her face in his face, etc. She was so damn sweet to me. Asked me about myself, treated me like I was a fellow actor, and it pretty much made my life."
