We Just Learned the Most Hilarious Fact About This Choreographer, Thanks to Reese Witherspoon

November 9, 2017

You know that feeling when you think you know everything about your favorite choreographer, but then a random celeb completely blows your mind with a juicy and hilarious fun fact about them? Same.

What are we talking about? It all started last week at the Wall Street Journal Innovators Awards, where actress Reese Witherspoon and choreographer Ryan Heffington were honored for their achievements. Witherspoon gave a heartfelt speech about roles for strong women in Hollywood, and Heffington (in true Heffington fashion), did this in lieu of a speech:

But the real fun started later, when Witherspoon began Instagramming about her fellow awardees (sadly this happened on her Instagram story so it has since disappeared), and revealed the best-kept secret about Heffington: Before he was Sia’s go-to dancemaker, he was in one of the most iconic movie scenes of all time.

That’s right. The “Bend and Snap” from Legally Blonde, starring Witherspoon herself.

We probably don’t need to tell you that Heffington is the one with the mustache and the spot-on snap. And as mind-blown as we are about this revelation, it also kinda makes perfect sense.

Thank you, Elle Woods Reese Witherspoon, for making our day.
