Reese Witherspoon shared the ultimate cute Throwback Thursday photo with her followers as she shared an old picture of her days as a child cheerleader on her official Instagram account on September 13. The stunning actress proved that she’s always been an all-American girl in the cute black and white photo which showed her on top of the cheerleading pyramid.
The adorable photo shared by the Sweet Home Alabama star showed a young Reese with her arms out straight as she smiled from ear to ear by being held up by her fellow cheerleaders.
Witherspoon was decked out in the full cheerleading gear in the upload, including a cheerleading top with the word “Generals” written across it.
She then revealed in the caption that she stumbled across the throwback photo while looking for photos to feature in her new book Whiskey in a Teacup, but didn’t confirm exactly how old she was when the adorable childhood photo was taken.
“Say hi to little cheerleader Reese! #TBT,” Reese captioned the photo, with a crying laughing emoji and a heart.
“I loved writing #WhiskeyInATeacup because I had the chance to walk down memory lane! I’m so proud to share with y’all where I come from and some amazing memories from my childhood,” she then added in the caption of the adorable Instagram photo.
