When Rick tells the Captain, “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship,” in Casablanca, he may as well have been referring to Beyoncé and Reese Witherspoon, who have solidified what appears to be a bona fide Hollywood power friendship of late.
What makes a Hollywood power friendship, you ask? Well, it’s simple.
Q: Have the ultra-famous alleged members of said friendship engaged in major gifting moments, chronicled on social media?
A: Yes. At the Golden Globes, Witherspoon reportedly garnered the courage to ask Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, for some of their table’s champagne after her own table ran out of water, and came away successful. (It was all revealed on Jennifer Aniston’s Instagram.) To further cement that friendly gesture, Bey and Jay sent Witherspoon a case of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Champagne a few days later, with a note that said, “More water.”
Y‘all Jay and Bey sent Reese Witherspoon some champagne! Lmao

Q: Have the alleged members of said friendship upped their generosity with swag?
A: Yes. On Wednesday, Witherspoon Instagrammed an adorable video of herself in Beyoncé’s gift of head-to-toe Ivy Park, writing, “Does this officially make me the newest member of the #Beyhive? ?”
Q: Are the alleged members of said friendship undeniably at the top of their game?
A: Yes. Obviously, nobody else is, or ever will be, Beyoncé. And Witherspoon, an A-list actor, has also become a powerful Hollywood producer with her production company, Hello Sunshine, which had a hand in Gone Girl, Wild, Big Little Lies, and The Morning Show (Witherspoon also starred in the last three). We’d imagine she and Beyoncé have plenty to chat about at Extremely Important Businesswoman luncheons.
