Reese Witherspoon Does The Bend And Snap For Legally Blonde Anniversary

Can you believe that Legally Blonde turns 15 today? It feels like just yesterday Elle Woods was teaching us how to “bend and snap.”

What makes a movie like Legally Blonde so loved? Elle teaches fans that you shouldn’t be so quick to judge others. In the movie, people thought Elle was no more than a “dumb blonde” but she surprised everyone when she was the top student at Harvard Law School. Elle also teaches us that you should wear what you want without caring about what others think! Just look at Elle, she wore nothing but pink outfits during her years in college!

Reese Witherspoon, the star behind Elle Woods, went on Twitter and Instagram to announce the movie’s anniversary. She came up with a way fans can celebrate the movie’s birthday by suggesting that fans use the hashtag, #LegallyBlonde15. “Share pictures of you wearing pink, a picture of your pet, your law degree, anything that reminds you of Legally Blonde.” Reese also teased us about doing the bend and snap!

True to her word, Reese posted herself doing the bend and snap on Instagram!

Resse Witherspoon told Instagram that she loves the movie because “It wasn’t necessarily about the girl getting the guy.” She added, “I have a feeling that I will be doing the bend and snap until I am 95.” Here is Reese teaching us how to bend and snap!

It’s been 15 years since the movie “Legally Blonde” introduced the world to Elle Woods, the pink-clad, Chihuahua-toting sorority student who aced the LSATs, got into Harvard Law School and inspired a generation. “I have had so many women say, ‘I went to law school because of ‘Legally Blonde,’” says star Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon). “It actually had a meaningful story. And it was about female empowerment. It wasn’t necessarily about the girl getting the guy.” To celebrate the anniversary, make sure to show off your pet Chihuahua, law degree or even your best “bend and snap” — “That is still the most asked request I get from people. I have a feeling I will be doing the bend and snap until I am 95,” says Reese — and tag #LegallyBlonde15 in the caption. Video by @reesewitherspoon
