The US comedian felt the only original way to commemorate friend Reese Witherspoon’s turning of age was in her birthday suit.
The brazen blonde, 41, chose to wish the Sweet Home Alabama star happy birthday in the cheekiest way possible, by posing in no more than knee-length black socks.

Captioning the snap simply: “Happy [email protected],” she let her lack of clothes leave a lasting impact.
It’s not the first time the Chelsea star has posed nude on the social network site. In January last year she posted a pic of her riding topless ‘for peace’ on a camel, save for pasties featuring the Star of David.

She captioned the image at the time: “A Muslim allowed a topless Jew to sit on his camel. And we say we can’t live side by side? I say we try and we can and we will. And, you don’t even have to be topless. L’chaim.”

Reese, who turned 40 on March 22, celebrated by gathering her A-list pals at the Warwick in LA on Sunday. Guests included Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Taylor Swift, Isla Fisher, Courteney Cox and Chelsea herself.
The mum of three even took to the stage during the party to sing Sweet Home Alabama from her 2002 film with Nicole Kidman’s husband Keith Urban.
Not content with just one celebration, the Wild star posted a snap of her seated at a dinner table next to pal Nicole Kidman on Monday evening with her face illuminated by birthday candle light.

Clearly overcome by birthday love, the actor captioned the shot: “This is 40 ... I am one lucky gal’’
The stunning blonde was inundated with birthday wishes from her Hollywood friends over the weekend, including Gwyneth Paltrow who captioned a picture of them together with: “Happy 40th birthday to you, #reesewitherspoon you fearless, hilarious, brainiac. #lifebeginsat40 and#sorryforthehighheels.”
