Bauer Reporter Hands Over Dissertation on Reese Witherspoon at Interview

At a recent press junket for the upcoming A Wrinkle in Time movie starring Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling, Ford opened up the interview with a personal touch: presenting Witherspoon her University dissertation on the star and her breakout film Legally Blonde.

“I want to start by saying I’m obviously a gigantic fan of all of you; Reese, I actually wrote 15,000 words on you once,” Ford said before handing Reese a copy of her lengthy assignment.

Witherspoon’s reaction was one not to be missed: she was both bewildered and greatly touched at Ford’s unusual gift.

“Thank you that really touches my heart,” Witherspoon gushed.

The story has struck a chord worldwide and has been picked up by outlets across the globe: Time Magazine, Buzz Feed and People Magazine just to name a few.

The story was also a trending Moment on Twitter on March 13.

A memorable moment for Lucy and the rest of Bauer!
