Reese Witherspoon and the ‘SNL’ cast finally apologized to their moms for childhood antics
Mother’s Day on national TV is the best time to say, ‘I’m sorry.’
Reese Witherspoon’s best moment on Saturday Night Live this week was a perfect mix of touching and funny, and came during her monologue.
In honor of Mother’s Day, Witherspoon explained that she was “a real nightmare from the ages of 5 to 37” before inviting cast members on stage with their real moms to apologize for actual things that had happened in the past.
The parade included Sasheer Zamata apologizing for slapping a girl and making her mom pay to fix her victim’s broken glasses and Beck Bennett admitting to his mom that he used a vibrating squiggle pen she purchased for him for “sexually experimenting.”
Of course, the moms got a chance for their own revenge, showing a reel of embarrassing footage of their kids that included teenage Aidy Bryant singing Britney Spears and Cecily Strong doing a play as a cocaine addict. The only person who got off relatively easy is Keenan Thompson, whose teenage years were already public knowledge from his time on Nickelodeon.
A former YouTube reporter for the Daily Dot, Rae Votta has more than a decade of experience in the digital and entertainment industries. Her work has appeared on AOL, Huffington Post, Out Magazine, Logo, VH1, Current TV, Billboard, and NYMag. She joined Netflix in 2016.
