London , Aug 5 (ANI): Reese Witherspoon has been a favourite amongst directors, but even astronauts couldnt escape the charms of the Legally Blonde star.

Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin has himself chosen the actress to play his wife in a new biopic.

Reese herself is no stranger to biographical movies shes already won an Oscar for the Johnny Cash flick Walk the Line.

Aldrin, 78, was the second man to step foot on the moon, and he is now hoping to cast Reese as his partner Lois.

“Lois likes Reese Witherspoon because she played a similar part in Walk the Line, The Sun quoted Buzz, as saying.

He added: “My experiences post-flight were ones of not being very productive for quite a while - depression and alcoholism, things like that. I was trying to recover from that and ran into (Lois) afterwards.”

Reese has just finished working alongside Vince Vaughn in Four Christmases, as well as voicing a character in new Kiefer Sutherland animation Monsters vs. Aliens. (ANI)
