That, and publicly declaring your best friendship. Witherspoon made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she discussed how she came to be acquainted with Queen Bey and Jay Z — and where their friendship stands now, after the Carters sent her a case of champagne and an entire Ivy Park wardrobe. She explained how things went down when she requested champagne from Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the Oscars, telling DeGeneres, "So I was thirsty and so was [Jennifer] Aniston and Jay-Z seemed to have a giant bottle of champagne so I was like ‘Excuse me Jay-Z. Pardon, can I have some champagne?' And he was like ‘Yeah, do you want some champagne?'" jenniferaniston/Instagram. "Yes, he sent me a case too. Don’t act like you’re the special one," DeGeneres joked, adding that Beyoncé had also sent her some Ivy Park gear. "No, no, no she sent me clothes and I said ‘I think Ellen might like these’, so she sent you clothes," Witherspoon joked. "Because Beyonce and I are really good friends. In fact, some might say best friends." What's the next level of friendship? An official Instagram post? A double date?
