Reese Witherspoon's Instagram is a gift, friends, and if you're not currently following her, consider this my gift to you. Last week, she posted an exceptional throwback photo of herself and Selma Blair sometime in the 90s. She posts the exact memes your fun aunt probably owns in fridge magnet form (see: Monday Lisa). And Tuesday, she shared a behind-the-scenes snap of the Big Little Lies cast, featuring one Meryl Streep, Serious Actress, hilariously ruining the photo.
In the photo, Zoë Kravitz, Meryl, Laura Dern, Reese and Nicole Kidman are presumably posing for press shots (note the stylist carefully positioning Nicole/Celeste's hair). Zoë, Laura, Reese and Nicole are diligently doing their jobs, looking solemnly into the camera—and then there's Meryl, sporting the same wide-eyed, open-mouthed grin your fun aunt adopts in selfies with a bottle of prosecco. Honestly, just drink in the photo. Thank you, Meryl. Thank you, Reese. My phone wallpaper was overdue an update.
Sounds like Reese, like the rest of us, has a whole lot of admiration for Mindy. Just to recap: as IndieWire reports, Mindy recently wrote and co-starred in Late Night, is working on a Netflix series about "the complicated life of a modern-day first generation Indian American teenage girl, inspired by Kaling’s own childhood," will write and star in a wedding comedy movie set in the U.S. and India, and is also adapting Four Weddings and a Funeral for Hulu. How could Reese—or anyone—not be inspired?
