    Elle Woods, is that you?

    Reese Witherspoon wore her Legally Blonde character's signature color to support a cancer-stricken fan via Instagram Wednesday. With a handmade sign in hand, the star explained her actions in the caption.

    "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!" said the 38-year-old Wild star, who has three children of her own.

    "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," she wrote. "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 star, who will participate in Stand Up to Cancer's fundraising telecast Sept. 5, has been increasingly active on Instagram. "Can you tell I have teenage kids?" she tells Vulture, referring to Ava Phillippe and Deacon Phillippe. "It's a great way to communicate with people, and I'm actually having fun with it. For an actor who doesn't ever get to see my audience, it's a great way to correspond and talk to my fans."

    It's also a great way to support for causes close to her heart.
