Watch Kirsten Dunst do a cheer from ‘Bring It On.’ Feel your ’00s heart burst.
It has been 15 years since the Toros and Clovers went head-to-head at the National Cheerleading Championships, but, even after all this time has passed, Kirsten Dunst hasn’t forgotten her Bring It On days.
On The Late Late Show with James Corden, the talk show host excitedly asks, “Do you still remember any of the cheers from Bring It On?” and – without a moment of hesitation, in true Torrance Shipman style – Dunst replies, “Of course I do!”
While she doesn’t remember all of the dance moves, she does remember the cheers and asks the audience to pick one for her to do. Immediately, one enthusiastic Bring It On fan begins cheering, “Brrr! It’s cold in here…” and Dunst beautifully joins in, making our hearts beat to the sound of nostalgia. The best part is that the entire audience clapped and cheered along, proving just how widespread this fandom is.
“Oh, look at this! It’s like a Bring It On reunion in here!” exclaims Corden, making us wish that Gabrielle Union, Eliza Dushku, and Jesse Bradford would magically transport themselves there. Meanwhile, Jeff Daniels (the other guest that night) definitely didn’t know what was happening, but seemed to enjoy the enthusiasm anyway! He even discussed his wife’s cheerleading past, revealing that she still remembers her high school cheers.
Dunst also mentions that the film’s cast had no idea that Bright It On would be a huge success. “We were just a couple of young people in San Diego making a Universal movie that nobody cared about,” she admitted. “None of us knew that it would become a hit. The opening weekend, we were all surprised. I think I cried.” She then goes on to explain that there wasn’t a big push for the movie, but viewers fell in love with it anyway.
This wasn’t the only Bring it On reunion this month —last week, Kirsten Dunst, Eliza Dushku, Jesse Bradford and Gabrielle Union got together for the film’s 15th anniversary and talked to Entertainment Weekly about their time filming.
Honestly, we are down for ALL the Bring it On nostalgia. Watch our girl KiKi totally nail this Bring it On cheer like a pro:
Now, if only we could get the entire Rancho Carne High School and East Compton cast together so that they can sing Toni Basil’s “Hey Mickey!” [Image via Beacon Communications]
