“When we were filming that movie, I had this moment where I thought, ‘Wow, this woman is a really brilliant, powerful person,'” he recalled. “Not just because she was a fantastic actress and comedian — she was in her mid-20s at the time — I told the director, I told a couple of people, ‘Reese is going to manage a movie company.’ They were like, ‘Really?'”

Lucas’ most recent comments regarding the film came a month after Witherspoon reminisced on the famous endeavor. it chatted with the actress at the premiere of her latest producing effort, Something From Tiffany’s, which reminded her of her and Patrick Dempsey’s scene in the renowned jewelry store in Sweet Home Alabama.
“I think there’s something so wonderful about Tiffany’s moment, and I hear about it all the time… That moment from Sweet Home Alabama just really sticks with people,” she stated before recalling what it was like to film the sequence.
“I think I was 24 years old, and it was a night shoot, so we were up all night, and they had closed down the entire store, so we were able to roam around and look at all the jewelry, everything,” she explained. “It was simply magical, extremely magical.”
While fans wait for a Sweet Home Alabama sequel, they can catch up on Lucas on Yellowstone season 5, which airs Sundays on Paramount Network. In the series, he plays a younger version of John Dutton, a part currently played by Kevin Costner.

“Obviously, there’s the passion of the fans and the people who love the show so much, and that grows all the time as people discover it… but what I am struck by more than anything is the level of passion and the family-like atmosphere that this crew and cast has together.”
“They work out in the middle of nowhere Montana, they’re quite secluded, and they work incredibly hard; everyone participating in the show is aiming to accomplish something extraordinary and pouring their lives and hearts into it.”
