Reese Witherspoon has just fulfilled all of our teenage dreams by reprising her iconic role as Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods.
There was no bend-and-snap or Delta Nu unfortunately, but we’re still loving the short clip, which Reese touchingly filmed as a shout-out to a sick fan.
The actress apparently received an email last week from a mum whose 4-year-old son Will is a huge fan of “The Pink Girl,” as he calls Elle Woods. Will is currently battling cancer and has apparently been watching Legally Blonde over and over while he is treated in hospital.
“Will has been watching it, like four times a day,” said his mum Julie. “When he feels good enough to want something, he wants Legos and 'The Pink Girl.' He finds comfort in it and loves the Pink Lady.”
The email asked for a picture of Reese holding a note to Will, and the actress gratefully obliged, posting an image with the caption “Will – I hear that you're fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you've been watching a lot of Legally Blonde and loving it. I hope it makes you laugh!”
She then went one step further and posted a video of herself in character, sending get well wishes to young Will from herself “and Bruiser.” Awww!
Fans have taken to Twitter and Instagram to share their own #TeamWill pictures and messages.
We wish him all the best!
