Reese Witherspoon Defends Eating "Delicious" Snow Following Fan Criticism

Reese Witherspoon Sends Fans Into a Frenzy After Eating Snow

Reese Witherspoon likes to eat snow. What? Like it's wrong?

On Jan. 19, the Legally Blonde star shared a TikTok video showing herself enjoying a "Chococinno" made of snow collected from outside her home, topped with cold brew coffee and chocolate and salted caramel syrups. She was met with mixed reactions.

"No no no.. snow is not made to eat.." one user commented. "U can get seriously sick."

In a second TikTok, the Oscar winner attempted to show that she practiced safe snow consumption. "There's so many people on here saying snow is dirty so we went and took snow from the backyard and we microwaved it and it's clear," she said. "Is this bad? Am I not supposed to eat snow?"

The 47-year-old then shared another TikTok defending her frosty snack. "OK so we're kind of in a category of 'You only live once' and it snows maybe once a year here. I don't know! Also, I want to say something. It was delicious," she said, laughing. "It was so good."

Reese explained, "We drank out of the tap water. We actually put our mouths on the tap and then sometimes like in the summer, when it was hot, we drank out of the hose, like, we put our mouth on the hose, growing up."

She then joked, "Maybe that's why I'm like this," adding, "So what you're saying to me is I have to filter the snow before I eat it? I just can't. Filtered snow. I don't know how to do that."
