As effortless as they make, well, pretty much everything look, sometimes celebs need a little help getting the things they want to do done. Case in point? Kristin Cavallari, who called upon private NFL chef Mike Kubiesa for a little help in the kitchen this week. Or Elsa Pataky (aka 1/2 of the cutest low-key couple on Instagram), who was open to getting new lunch box ideas from Instagram fans. Reese Witherspoon also got a little aid in the kitchen when she turned to a cookbook by a fellow famous face. We get by with a little help from our friends, indeed. Check out the results of their aided quests, along with seven other of this week鈥檚 celeb DIYs below!

1. Reese Witherspoon: Reese supported gal pal @gwynethpaltrow by trying her hand at the actress鈥檚 recipes from her cookbook, It鈥檚 So Easy: Delicious Weekday Recipes for the Super-Busy Home Cook ($21). 鈥淭rying my best, @gwynethpaltrow, to make it look like #ItsSoEasy! #WishMeLuck!鈥
