Witherspoon tried The Cow's pizza with Mindy Kaling while they were filming A Wrinkle In Time in 2017.

She posted a photo of herself and Kaling eating a cheesy slice of pizza in Disney costume.

The caption read: "When we were filming A Wrinkle in Time, Mindy Kaling and I made it our mission to check out all the local eateries. The Cow Queenstown is the most precious little pizza spot in Queenstown. A must visit!"

A The Cow staff says the restaurant found out about the shout out today when a customer rang to let them know.

"It's really cool, we're excited," she said.

On its social media, The Cow posted a reply to Witherspoon's post: "We love you too, @reesewitherspoon".

"You are our all time favourite guest.. well, you and Lamb Lamb (tied). And we're extra chuffed to get a shout out from our favourite cultural commentator. Come back anytime!"
