On the same day Jennifer Aniston and company staged a Friends reunion on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Reese Witherspoon also went back in time.

But she didn't do so just for humor.

Instead, the Oscar winner dressed as Elle Woods (her beloved character in Legally Blonde) to support a four-year old fan with cancer.

Holding up a handmade sign on Instagram, the actress explained:

"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. I hope it makes you laugh!"

Witherspoon continued:

"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!"

You heard her, THGers? Get to it!

Look for Witherspoon to be one of MANY stars who will participate in Stand Up to Cancer's fundraising telecast on September 5. It will air on every network.
