Reese Witherspoon just channeled Elle Woods for a workout, and we’re bending and snapping!
Reese Witherspoon sure knows how to tantalize us with Elle Woods references. On a recent visit to the gym, she snapped a selfie and quoted her bombshell character from Legally Blonde . A sorority sister turned law student, Elle Woods was plucky, unflappable and intelligent. We sorta wanted to be her. We also sorta wanted to perfect the bend and snap.
Oh — in case you’ve forgotten how to do the Bend and Snap, you can pick it up quick by watching this fun reminder.
Also, let’s not forget what Elle Woods said about the empowering move:
“When used appropriately, it has a 83% rate of return on dinner invitations.
It’s been 15 years since Reese Witherspoon played Elle. That seems like a whole other era. In fact, the leading lady also has ushered in and embraced a new decade of life. She turned 40 this year.
The mega-talented actress and mother isn’t letting anything slow her down. Reese recently starred in HBO’s Big Little Lies, which played to commercial and critical success .
In her 2015 Glamour Woman of the Year speech, Reese talked openly about the difficulties of opening shop:
"I was warned that on the crazy chance Pacific Standard would acquire any good scripts, we would never make it past our first few years in business because there just wasn't a market for buying female-driven material… But like Elle Woods, I do not like to be underestimated."
It’s so awesome that Reese carries a little Elle with her everywhere, from workouts to business decisions!
