Reese Witherspoon has just found out that she’s 63% Irish, and she is super excited about it.
The actress joined Conan O’Brien on his talk show to promote her latest television show Big Little Lies.
She told Conan, “I called your producer on the way here in the car because I was very excited. I did one of those genetic testing things and I found out that I’m 63 percent Irish.
“I had no idea. I had no idea! I thought I was Scottish and Welsh. It turns out my parents are just full of s**t I guess. But now I’m Irish!”

The Legally Blonde star continued, “It just makes so much sense. I’m a really good drinker. I love St. Patrick’s Day. Potatoes are delicious. I’m looking forward to meeting all my cousins.”
The talk show host then interrupted by jokingly saying, “No, no. You don’t want to meet those people,” as Conan himself is Irish.
The blonde beauty then tried her hand at an Irish accent, “Now I get to say things like, ‘It’s in me genes! I love that Conan O’Brien. He’s such a nice fella.”
Finally, she finished off her Irish rant by comparing Conan to an Irish mythical creature, “You’re kind of like a giant leprechaun.”
