Reese Witherspoon took to social media this week after fact-checking a story about herself that she falsely claims reported that they had listed one of her Nashville homes for sale.

The star of “Legally Blonde,” “Walk the Line” and other movies, posted a screengrab on Instagram of a “exclusive” Variety story that she was parting with her chic mansion — except the house is pictured with the article was not yet the hare, Vanity Fair reported.

“Hey @variety,” Witherspoon wrote. “This house is so nice, but it’s not mine!”

Meanwhile, celebrities such as “NCIS” star Mark Harmon prefer to avoid social media at all to keep track of their own personal life.

“It’s not even a choice. It is who we are,” he told Closer Weekly. “We have to stay at home. A lot. I’m not a Twitter guy or a Facebook guy. Our sons do not.”
