Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon says she knew one first date was over when the guy corrected her grammar.
NEW YORK, (UPI) -- Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon says she knew one first date was over when the guy corrected her grammar.
Witherspoon was in New York last weekend promoting the romantic comedy "How Do You Know" when she was asked if she'd ever had a disastrous first date, such as the one her character has in the film with the man played by actor Paul Rudd.
"I had someone correct my grammar on a blind date and I knew in the first 10 minutes that the date was over. Yeah, you just don't correct someone's grammar," Witherspoon, a divorced mother of two, told reporters in Manhattan Sunday.
So, what did she say wrong?
"I don't know. I'm from Tennessee. I probably say everything wrong. I probably said 'ain't' or something," she replied.
Co-starring Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson, "How Do You Know" opens in U.S. theaters Dec. 17.
