Jay-Z And Beyoncé Just Surprised Reese Witherspoon With A Lot Of Champagne After Their Hilarious Golden Globes Moment

What do you do when your table has run out of water at the Golden Globes? You lean over to ask Jay-Z and Beyoncé if you can have some of their champagne, of course!

It pays to have friends in high places who own a pretty expensive champagne company. Just ask Reese Witherspoon!

At the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Reese was lucky enough to be sitting at the table next to Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who'd arrived at the event with their own bottles of alcohol.

. @Beyonce and Jay-Z just walked in. They're waiting until Kate McKinnon finishes speaking to take their seats. Is their bodyguard carrying bottles of alc for them?

In case you didn't know, Jay owns a stake in Armand de Brignac champagne, more commonly known as Ace of Spades because of its unique bottle design.

The Golden Globes just so happened to be sponsored by rival brand Moët & Chandon. Of course, Jay couldn't be seen drinking that — so he made sure to bring his own supplies.

Well, when Reese and Jennifer Aniston's table had run out of water, the Legally Blonde actor — being the icon and legend she is — took matters into her own hands.

The moment became something of a meme on Twitter. Reese posted on her Instagram with the caption "Hide your champagne, y'all! 😂🥂"

But Reese was in for a big surprise — when she got home from New York, she was welcomed with even more champagne!

Posting a bunch of videos to her Instagram story, Reese revealed Jay and Beyoncé had sent her a bunch of flowers and a case of Ace of Spades for good measure!

And the attached note even had a little inside joke about their exchange at the Golden Globes: "More water."

Even though it was only 11:30 a.m., Reese didn't hesitate to crack the bottle open with her mom for a little early lunchtime tipple.

Betty, in particular, was a big fan.

So the moral of the story: SHOOT YOUR SHOT IN 2020! Who knows, maybe Jay-Z and Beyoncé will send you a case of fancy champagne too.

Reese Witherspoon asked Beyoncé for some of she and Jays champagne that they brought into the Golden Globes. I’m carrying this same energy all 2020. Simply ask. For anything. Because you never know.
