Reese Witherspoon thinks Ariana Grande absolutely “nailed” her homage to Legally Blonde in her music video for “thank you, next.”
Taking to Instagram the 42-year-old actress expressed how blown away she was at Ariana’s recreation of the iconic character Elle Woods.
The video pulled inspiration from some of Grande’s favorite movies, including Mean Girls, 13 Going On 30, Bring It On and Legally Blonde. She even enlisted Jennifer Coolidge to reprise her Legally Blonde role, Paulette Bonafonte, for a scene in the middle of the video.
Witherspoon posted a comparison photo on her Instagram page, adding, “Thank u, next” and an applauding emoji. The Oscar-winner also added a heart emoji and the hashtags “Elle Woods Forever” and “Think Pink.”

Jennifer Garner, whose 13 Going On 30 character made a cameo in thank you, next, also praised the 00s nod.
