The Bella Twins were given the cold shoulder by Reese Witherspoon's media company back in 2020.

The former WWE stars, who now go by their birth names, Brie and Nikki Garcia, claimed they felt snubbed by the actress when trying to promote their memoir, Incomparable, three years ago.

Brie and Nikki Garcia were ignored when trying to pitch their memoir to Reese Witherspoon's book club.

"When our book came out, I DM'd Reese Witherspoon's book club," Brie explained to a news publication during a recent interview. "I was like, 'Hey, I know you like stories about women. I think you guys would really love this story. It feels very up Reese's alley.'"

The professional wrestling tag team thought their story would be perfect for Reese' Book Club, especially since Hello Sunshine prides itself on "putting women at the center of every story," per a focus statement on the company's website.

"No one ever wrote me back, but I wrote them this long DM. I wrote to them twice. I'm like, 'Hello Sunshine, anyone home?'" she continued, reiterating her disappointment by the Legally Blonde star's lack of response.

"I feel like our stories ... wrestling is a big part of it, but there's so much more of our childhood, what we fought there..." Brie noted. "There's just so much to our story that I feel would really empower not only women, men as well, and so we've loved that."

Despite being ignored by Witherspoon, the 40-year-old athletes still felt immensely proud of the work they put into their memoir — and would even be interested in telling their story on the big screen.

"After we published our memoir, I had always thought, 'I would love to make this into a TV series or a movie,'" Nikki confessed, adding, "and also add in so much more of our lives, so much more of what we couldn't fit into one memoir. Because technically Brie and I could have probably wrote three books in a row."

The professional wrestling tag team fantasized about turning their memoir into a TV series or biopic.

The idea sparked a conversation about who would be cast for the theoretical television show or film, as Nikki knew without a doubt she'd want Selena Gomez, 31, to play the role.

The twins even thought the Wizards of Waverly Place alum could play both of them simultaneously like Lindsay Lohan did in The Parent Trap in 1998.

Continuing to daydream, Nikki said her second choice would be Wednesday star Jenna Ortega, 21, causing Brie to chime in: "Actually her and Selena, that would be good!"
