Actress Reese Witherspoon has added an extra celebrity touch to her home, by naming her dog after late crooner Frank Sinatra.

Witherspoon and her husband Ryan Phillippe have gone as far as to give the English bulldog a chance at carving out his own showbiz career, after he was handed a role in the actress' hit comedy Legally Blonde 2.

Of the choice of name for the canine, Witherspoon explains, "He's Ryan's favourite artist."
