"Is it scented?"

Posted on

In case you've somehow missed it, the cast of A Wrinkle in Time is a truly iconic group of people, including Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon.

While doing press for the film, reporter Lucy Ford sat down with the perfect trio to chat about A Wrinkle in Time, but before she started she planned to present Reese with something special — her 15,000-word university dissertation on Legally Blonde:

4 years ago I wrote my university dissertation on Legally Blonde, and I'm about to give it to @RWitherspoon herself. I may cry https://t.co/AKKtH4BSw6

Lucy shared footage of the moment she presented her idol with the gift, and it's honestly one of the most special and pure celebrity reactions I've ever seen. You just need to watch the whole thing:

The moment I handed @RWitherspoon my 15,000 dissertation/love letter to Legally Blonde - and yes, it was scented. I blacked out somewhere between her taking it and Oprah saying 'wow' #WrinkleInTime https://t.co/56XV8FElqV

Honestly, this GIF of Reese finding out someone wrote 15,000 words about her has extended my life by approximately 20 years.

After Reese told Lucy how much the gesture meant to her, she just had one question:

The answer was a big fat YES — Lucy literally sprayed the document with perfume, making her my true hero.

It was just a perfect throwback to this iconic Legally Blonde moment:

People couldn't get enough of the heartfelt exchange:

This video cleared my skin, boosted my GPA, washed and folded my laundry, and gave me the motivation to get out of bed. Thank you. https://t.co/TXiDMUfxsd

@lucyj_ford @RWitherspoon People make fun of me because I say Elle Woods is my idol, they say “she’s a character, she’s not real” . She’s real to me. I love Reese Witherspoon 💕 this made me cry! Congrats!! https://t.co/t8SAhx2DUT

Sorry everyone @lucyj_ford has done the ultimate fangirl and applications for future fangirls are now closed. THIS IS EPIC! https://t.co/I1JrFhLKU7

As an added bonus, Lucy shared her dissertation, so the rest of us can check it out:

I attached the wrong link like an idiot. For anyone wanting the ACTUAL dissertation, here is the link: https://t.co/6ORZ20Izfd https://t.co/Kic7fopyZx

Thank you for blessing us with such a perfect fangirl moment!
