How To Pronounce Cara Delevingne’s Name, According To A Very Drunk Reese Witherspoon

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

What did we do before the days of Instagram videos? Just imagine what our favorite celebrities were like when they got shitfaced? Thank goodness for technology, because now we have video evidence that Reese Witherspoon is one hilarious drunkardCara Delevingne was kind enough to upload video clips that feature a strange gaggle of famous women hanging out at the Met Gala. They’re tipsy, they’re adorable, and they’re… totally incapable of pronouncing Cara’s name.

“I love you, Care-a. Carla. I don’t know what your fucking name is,” Reese says with her eyes droopy and her phone wobbling in her intoxicated hand. “That’s super French. Day-la-veen.” She goes on to add, “The most important thing about a name for a girl is that a man can whisper it in his pillow.” Oh dear.

A second video begins on Zooey Deschanel making a slightly embarrassed face, while Reese continues her monologue about Cara. “If you force me to say your last name, I’ll be fucked,” Reese says. Cara then prompts her to try anyway, and Reese responds “Dee-la-veen-yee.” A for effort!

The scene quickly unravels until everyone in the elevator (bathroom? hallway?) is throwing out their own interpretations of Cara’s name. Kate Upton smiles and looks confused. I honestly can’t think of anything cuter.

If you’re playing along at home, Cara herself pronounces her first name with a short A sound (Car-a, as in car, as in vehicle) and her last name like Del-la-veen with a subtle G sound in there, almost like “vignette.” But, based on this video, it doesn’t seem like Cara would care that much if you never learned how to say it right.
