Reese Witherspoon says the most important thing in a name for a girl is that a man can whisper it into his pillow.

But we're not supposed to know that.

Model and it girl Cara Delevingne posted a revealing video on Instagram featuring models and actresses Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel, Kate Upton, and Tennessee Thomas huddled together in a lift at the Met Gala earlier this week. It was swiftly removed.

In the video, the celebrities soon start joking about how to pronounce Delevingne.

"If you force me to say your last name, I'll be f***ed," Witherspoon is heard joking.

In a second video Witherspoon attempts to say the name despite her previous reluctance.

"I love you Caara, Car-a, I don't know what your f***ing name is," she joked before slowly purring "Del-e-ving-ne."

Once the mum-of-three got the formalities out of the way, she imparted some unusual words of wisdom to the Burberry model.

"The most important thing for a name for a girl is that a man can whisper it in his pillow," she quipped.

The Washington Post's Style Blog lamented the removal of the videos saying they offered a rare glimpse of something the outside world rarely sees: celebrities being themselves.

"While Witherspoon might not want to be known for her, um, special advice about naming conventions, it's way better than any tightly-controlled interview she's given. In fact, she seems kind of fun," the Washington Post wrote.

"Sure, the videos weren't very classy. But it was an extremely unusual glimpse into something that we often forget when we see famous people: Beneath the airbrushing and media spin, celebrities really are people, just like us," the Post wrote.

Cara was clearly entertained by the actress, captioning the video, "I ??U @reesewitherspoon #wisewords #loveitwhenyousaymyname #cheeky."

The Oscar-winning actress spent a lot of the evening with the 21-year-old British model - they were both wearing outfits by designer Stella McCartney. As well as posing together for photographs on the red carpet, Cara also uploaded videos from inside the event.
