Reese Witherspoon Treats Sofia Vergara to French Desserts in New Orleans

Reese Witherspoon knows the way to Sofia Vergara‘s heart: French pastries.

When filming wrapped recently on the New Orleans set of the actresses’ upcoming not-yet-titled movie, Witherspoon surprised her costar with a box of baked goods that she personally picked out from local dessert boutique Sucré. The luscious confections included a strawberry dacquoise rouge (which Vergara is holding in the picture below), lait praline, summer berry verrine, S&M (strawberry and malt) and s’more skillet.

The Modern Family star, who has a well-documented sweet tooth, appreciated Witherspoon’s gift by posting a shot of herself happily posing with the pastries. “Stop spoiling me @reesewitherspoon!!,” she wrote. “Im going to miss u too much!!!”

Witherspoon clearly was on the right track: Vergara’s Instagram is filled with pictures of herself surrounded by cakes, pies and doughnuts. A few weeks ago, in a photo that showed off her famous derriere, the sexy actress held up a small pink box and wrote, “I worked out on a saturday!!! I deserve my little rum cake!!” In another shot, she’s gazing down at a big chocolate-topped cake: “Now is a happy Friday!!!gracias.”

Vergara and Witherspoon bonded during the film’s shoot and, like girlfriends everywhere, occasionally posted goofy photos of themselves. One on Witherspoon’s Instagram feed depicted Vergara primping over the blonde actress with the caption, “Thanks for the makeup @SofiaVergara Now can you do my hair?”

Before she left New Orleans, Witherspoon, who was raised in the Louisiana hot spot, treated another special someone to a Big Easy sweet: her 21-month-old son, Tennessee James. “Last day of beignets with my boy,” she captioned in an Instagram shot of her holding hands with the tot.

For her part, Vergara is also keeping busy post-filming: She’s rumored to be dating PEOPLE’s Hottest Bachelor, Joe Manganiello.

Let’s just hope the True Blood star has an appreciation for all things sugar, too.

Sofia Vergara is so stuck up! She does not care to have her picture taken unless it’s with someone famous. I don’t know how she has become so famous in the U.S. with that horrible accent! On top of that she’s getting old.. and the botox is starting to ruin her pretty face.

whatever on

yummmm…love random “friends” – associates/co-workers during a shoot is more like it.

All of Reese movies flop so what do her handlers do try to hook her up with a well known star and hope that Sofia will draw people into the theaters to see movie. Sorry but I think this movie is going to bomb. I don’t know Sofia is enough to overcome Reese stink.
