Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling play the majestic, celestial Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who in A Wrinkle in Time, beings who would not be caught dead sitting outside on a park bench eating pizza off paper plates. Fortunately, thanks to Instagram, we don’t have to imagine what such a bizarre occurrence would look like.
Yesterday, on A Wrinkle in Time‘s opening weekend, Witherspoon took to the platform to share an instantly iconic photo. Both women are sitting casually on a park bench, eating enormous, folded slices of pizza — and dressed in full costume. The juxtaposition between the decadent, other-worldly wigs and the grease dripping from the paper plates is spectacular.
“That time @MindyKaling and I tessered straight to the planet that served up the best pizza,” Witherspoon joked in the caption, alongside a pizza and a laughing emoji, “#behindthescenes #awrinkleintime.”
A Wrinkle in Time already debuted at #2 at the box office this weekend alongside Black Panther, so another pizza party may well be in order. If they invited us, we wouldn’t say no.
