Strike – a pose!
Reese Witherspoon hit up her local lanes to celebrate her birthday with a night of bowling in Nashville on Saturday.
Before taking her turn, the actress – with her blue ball in hand – flashes a sly smile in a picture she posted to her WhoSay account.
“Having a ball at my birthday! #nashvegas #goodfriends #bowlersnotballers,” Witherspoon, who turned 38, captioned the shot.
But what’s a birthday without a sweet selfie with the woman who made it all possible?
“Thank you to my amazing mother! #happybirthday #9months #birthandbeyond #alltherest,” she wrote, along with a happy photo of the mother-daughter duo.
