Reese Witherspoon Reprises Her Iconic 'Legally Blonde' Role For Charity
Rex Features

Reese has treated us to an Elle Woods reprieve and it's all in aid of a poorly four-year-old boy. This is too sweet...

Reese Witherspoon has just answered all of our teenage fashion dreams by reprising her most iconic character ever, and it's all for a very good cause. 

Who can forget the 'bend-and-snap' or THAT pink PU suit? The role of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde (hands down, every girl's real favourite film whether they'll admit to it or not) put actress Reese Witherspoon on the map. It sold the fact that girls could be smart and, ahem, stylish if they so wanted to be and it seems that even 13 years (yes, THIRTEEN) after its initial release, the cult film is still attracting a host of new, young fans. 

So much so, that Reese decided to dress up as her beloved Elle and share a snap on Instagram to show her support for a fan with cancer.

'This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine' wrote the 38-year-old Oscar winning actress alongside the image of her dressed in Elle Woods' signature pink palette, complete with a string pearls.

Speaking directly to the young child, Reese went on to say in a sweet video: '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!' The cute-o-metre just broke...

In the pic itself, Reese can be see holding up a handmade sign which reads 'Get Better Soon! #TeamWill'. 

The starlet continues, saying: 'I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honour. I'm sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers. Just know - I'm a really big fan of yours. Anyone else - feel free to make your own sign for Will and post it with the hashtag #TeamWill so he can see it....I’m sure he’d love that.' 

We don't know about you, but we couldn't love Reese Witherspoon any more right now. Check out her adorable video to poorly Will below...
