    On Thursday, Marlon posted a picture with Paris and explained how the legendary film came to be.

    "The original 'white chick' and I... funny story one day my brother [Shawn] calls me at 3am saying 'marlon we should play white chicks'... i replied 'nigga, you high?'." Marlon wrote. "The next day he showed me a magazine with [Paris] and her sister on the cover and said we should play gurls like this. I immediately got it."

    The movie was all love, and a send-up of Paris's huge cultural influence during the early '00s.

    "They were so big and was the gateway to pop culture send up. We did that film in good spirit to celebrate a special time in all of our lives," Marlon explained. "So thank you paris and Nikki [sic] for being muses. Love ya. When we do #WhiteChicks2 'let’s go shopping.'"
