Even A-Listers can get star-struck.

Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon said she was so nervous about the prospect of meeting the Duchess of Cambridge at a fundraiser that she couldn’t even decide what to wear.

“I must have tried on like six outfits,” Witherspoon, 35, tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview to air Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I m meeting a princess. You don t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don t know, maybe we can be friends.”

Witherspoon’s preparations for the event, which Prince William also attended, apparently prompted some teasing from the star’s husband, Jim Toth.

“My husband just thought I was so dorky,” said Witherspoon, whose new movie, This Means War, opens Friday.
