Reese Witherspoon starred in Legally Blonde years ago, but her fans have never forgotten that iconic dance involving bending and snapping. And so, just like the character that she portrayed, Reese showed the moves to Walmart shareholders, reported the Daily Mail.
Taking on the role of Master of Ceremonies for Walmart’s annual shareholders meeting, Witherspoon persuaded the audience to join her doing the “bend and snap” moves. And at 39, Reese hasn’t lost her Legally Blonde agility.
Watch below to check out her dance moves.
Also showing that you’re never too old to charm an audience was Carol Burnett, who at 82 hopped onto the stage at the University of Arkansas Bud Walton Arena. But that’s not all, as more celebrities wowed the Walmart shareholders audience.
Among those performing while Reese emceed were Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, and Rod Stewart, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Social media exploded with excitement over the unexpected star-studded event.
“.@RWitherspoon spends day as Walmart associate in Santa Clarita; introduces bend and snap and stock at #WMTShares “
“Y’all I saw Carol Burnett AGAIN! Bless my heart. ;) #dying”
“Mariah Carey was amazing #WMTShares”
As for Reese’s Legally Blonde moves, Witherspoon hinted that a sequel might be in the works, reported Glamour.
Visiting Watch What Happens Live to talk about her movie Hot Pursuit, Reese segued to the topic of whether Elle Woods, the blonde bombshell who became a lawyer in the movie, might have a future in yet another film.
“Somebody pitched me an idea the other day,” commented Witherspoon. “Somebody thought it would be really funny if Elle went to jail.”
Legally Blonde 2, shown below, was a success, but it’s been many years since Reese portrayed Elle.
However, several years ago, Reese’s Legally Blonde co-star, Jennifer Coolidge (who, as the character Paulette, received help from Elle in reclaiming her dog from a brutal ex-boyfriend), said that Witherspoon had decided against a Legally Blonde 3.
“[It was] Reese’s choice not to make the third film,” said Jennifer.
However, sequels sometimes take a while to get made, with rumors recurring again and again, as is the case with Sarah Jessica Parker and her fans’ longing and dreams for Sex And The City 3, as the Inquisitr reported.
When Sarah Jessica recently shared a photo of herself with a caption hinting at a possible sequel, #SATC3 immediately started trending.
“Well. I guess the cat’s out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I’m under strict gag order until then. Xx, Sj,” wrote Parker.
However, it turned out to be about her shoe design collection.
