Elle Woods is back! Well, sort of. Reese Witherspoon channeled her "Legally Blonde" character on Instagram in honor of a young fan who is battling cancer. Wearing pearls, a pink dress, and holding a handmade sign, Reese explains her support for #TeamWill.

"This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine. Will—I hear that you're fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you've been watching a lot of 'Legally Blonde' and loving it," she captions the photo.

Reese continues, "I hope it makes you laugh! I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor—and I'm sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers. Just know—I'm a really big fan of YOURS! PS anyone else—feel free to make your own sign for Will and post it with the hashtag #TeamWill so he can see it....I’m sure he’d love that!"

The actress also posted a short video clip as "The Pink Lady," giving a shoutout to Will on behalf of Elle and Elle's dog, Bruiser.

Reese is set to participate in Stand Up to Cancer’s nationally televised fundraiser on September 5.
