Thu, 28 Aug 2014 17:57:12 +0000

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Reese Witherspoon transformed into “Pink Lady” Elle Woods from her hit movie Legally Blonde to send a hopeful message to a four-year-old boy battling cancer.

The Oscar-winning actress sent the message to four-year-old Will after learning that he was a big fan of Legally Blonde.

“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 captioned an Instagram photo of herself holding a sign with the hashtag “Team Will.”

“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!” Witherspoon wrote. “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!”

In addition, the mother of three made a short YouTube video titled “The Pink Lady’s Message To Will.”
