We really thought an Oscar winner would have better enunciation.

'Speak Out' is rapidly becoming Ellen DeGeneres' favourite game and while the playing field is leveled for all her guests who take part, we really thought that Reese Witherspoon would be better able to get her tongue around the phrases given to her.

But we suppose when you can't pronounce your Fs or your Bs, the phrase 'Fuzzy ferrets are better than bald beagles' is never going to be easy.

Witherspoon also talked about the possibilities of a second season of 'Big Little Lies' with Ellen but had the same vague answer that everyone attached to the show has been giving since it ended.
