Reese Witherspoon Gets

Excited to share her upcoming film with her fans, Reese Witherspoon posted a photo of herself in character on the set of “Wild” on Friday (October 18).

The “Legally Blonde” star wears a white t-shirt with a heavy backpack in the pic, which she captioned, “Here”s first pic of me as Cheryl Strayed in WILD. So excited to play @cherylstrayed in a movie!”

In the film based off of Strayed”s autobiographical bestseller, a woman hikes 1,100 miles alone on the Pacific Coast Trail.

Sharing the photo herself, the author gushed on Facebook, “It”s an extraordinary experience to see Reese Witherspoon dressed in the clothes I wore on the trail, her hair the same style and color as mine then, with my beloved/loathed Monster on her back packed just the way I packed it. I”m humbled and awed and so excited for you to see the movie!”
