London: 'Legally Blonde' star Reese Witherspoon says she wants to be friends with the Duchess of Cambridge.

The 35-year-old actress met the British royal during a charity fundraising event last year and now she would love to be closer to her, reported a website.

"I don't know, maybe we can be friends. I would like to hang out. I am not sure she (Kate) wants to hang out with me. I could see that happening. Call me. Call me anytime. I don't know, maybe we can be friends. I would like to hang out. I'm not sure she wants to hang out with me," Witherspoon said.

 "She was really nice. She was lovely. She's so composed. She seems like such a nice lady and I think it's so nice nowadays to see someone with such nice composure who carries herself so beautifully," she said.

The actress also said that her husband Jim Toth thinks her love for Middleton is hilarious. "My husband just thought I was so dorky. Whenever I am super-excited about things my husband calls it the double-barrel. That's when I smile so big I look like a child," she said.
