Reese Witherspoon, but more importantly our favorite lawyer Elle Woods, dressed up as “The Pink Lady” for a four year old fan battling cancer.
According to the boy Will’s mother, Witherspoon as Elle Woods cheered up the boy when he was sick and he’s a really big fan of Legally Blonde and refers to Witherspoon as “The Pink Woman.”
“When he feels good enough to want something, he wants Legos and ‘The Pink Girl,’” Will’s mom wrote in a letter to Witherspoon. “He finds comfort in it and loves the Pink Lady.”
She asked for a photo with a sign that says “Team Will” to cheer her son up. Witherspoon not only made a sign, she posted a video sharing her support for her young fan.
Reese wrote on her Instagram for will too. “I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor—and I’m sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers,” she wrote. “Just know—I’m a really big fan of YOURS!”
I personally love when celebrities do stuff like this, it shows they’re a little bit more human. I mean, queen of perk Elle Woods, would clearly do anything for her fans and this is why I love her.
