Emily Scarvie

Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, who both star in the upcoming animated film "Sing 2," sat down with Ellen Degeneres to play a rapid-fire game, including naming their first celebrity crushes. According to Witherspoon, her first crush was on a classic rockstar.

"Jim Morrison from The Doors," she said, before adding, "I was a weird kid."

She explained that The Doors movie had just come out and who she really had a crush on was Val Kilmer (as Jim Morrison).

McConaughey was impressed by his costars response, and revealed his first celebrity crush, saying, "I did have a little bit of a crush on the young lady sitting to the left of me from 'Man in the Moon'" (which Witherspoon starred in when she was 14).

Understandably, Witherspoon was surprised by her long-time friend's response, yelling, "What? Somebody write this down!"
