Reese Witherspoon and Naomi Watts

We've spotted A-list actresses Reese Witherspoon and Naomi Watts leaving yoga classes together in LA and were excited to see that the two are friends. The story of how they met, however, is even more adorable. Ahead of the 2013 award season — during which Naomi was nominated for an Oscar for her role in The ImpossibleReese confessed to Entertainment Weekly that she had written an old-school fan letter to Naomi to gush about her performance in the film. She started the note with, "Hi Naomi. I know we don't know each other well. I hope it’s OK that I am reaching out to you, because I simply could not contain my enthusiasm about your performance in The Impossible."

The heartfelt letter goes on: "Not since I saw Meryl Streep’s performance in Sophie’s Choice have I been so moved by an actress’s performance. If I have anything to do with it (and I will literally tap dance on Sunset Boulevard for you!), you will be holding every beautiful statue that exists by the end of February." After receiving a letter like that, it's no surprise that a friendship would blossom.
