Turns out, even celebrities sometimes regret their very public fashion choices - just ask Reese Witherspoon about that.

In a video that she recently posted to Instagram titled Rating my Throwback Outfits, Reese, who last year became Hollywood's richest actress, is seen breaking down some of her most iconic looks with the hilarious flair she brings to all of her comedic roles. 

Starting off with a green velvet look that she donned at the premiere of Romeo + Juliet back in 1996, Reese says, "She's looking cute. The boots are a lot. Also, I think I’m chewing gum, so I give myself — I'm going to give it a B."

The 46-year-old actor goes on to analyze a pretty classic outfit that she wore back in 1994 at the premiere of True Lies. Of the white shirt and blue jeans ensemble, Reese says, "Now, c'mon, this is classic. I'm liking this. She's got pearls. She's a little young for pearls; it's a little 'old lady,' but that’s OK. I'm going to give her an A."

In the video, Reese, who nailed springtime style with the perfect candy pink coat and matching trousers just a few months ago, grades herself while seated on a couch and looking through a series of photos she has printed out. 

Although all her comments are pretty funny, it is her opinion of a holiday-themed outfit that she wore while walking down the street with fellow Big Little Lies actor Laura Dern that seems to elicit the most heartfelt response. 

"Who are these Christmas cuties?," Reese says while looking at the photo. "Dern and Witherspoon out for Christmas lunch. Ten out of 10 -  A-plus! Dern, call me."

Overall, it seems like Reese approved of most of her past looks - and we couldn't agree more with her.

Fans of the actor quickly took to the comments section to express their own opinions about the various looks that Reese dissected on camera.

"Loving the white blouse & jeans," one follower wrote. "Classic is right. 🔥"

"You look great in those outfits, Reese!," yet another commented. 

"You always look great :)," a third user noted.

There's just something about The Morning Show actor's bubbly personality and candid disposition that always tugs at the heartstrings, but Reese is also known for using her spotlight to shed light on serious topics.

Back in May, Reese, Cher and Hillary Clinton lead backlash to Roe v Wade abortion leak, for example. 

Reese specifically addressed the Spreme Court on Twitter. "Hey SCOTUS," she wrote on the social media platform. "Let Roe Vs. Wade stand. You did it in 1992. Stare Decicis. This has been decided."

We have got just one thing to say to Reese in response: keep on using your celebrity to make us laugh and draw attention to serious matters!
