Reese Witherspoon celebrates the 20th anniversary of 'Sweet Home Alabama

Reese Witherspoon has paid tribute to the film that "completely changed" her life. 


On Saturday, the Big Little Lies star shared a series of clips from the 2002 romantic comedy Sweet Home Alabama on Instagram.

In the film, Witherspoon plays Melanie, a New York fashion designer who returns to her small Southern town to face a divorce from her first husband, played by Josh Lucas. 

The film also stars Melanie Lynskey as her former best friend and Patrick Dempsey as her current partner who awaits her return to Manhattan. 

Dakota Fanning, in one of her first roles, portrays a younger version of Witherspoon's character. 

“Sweet Home Alabama came out 20 years ago and it completely changed my life. 

Great memories of making this movie with this amazing cast - Josh, Patrick, Dakota, Melanie, Jean, Ethan, Mary Kay, Fred and Candace of course.

Witherspoon wrote in the caption of her post. “So many great scenes and my favorite line… ‘So I can kiss you if I want to.’ Do you remember the first time you saw that?

The Hello Sunshine producer often pays tribute to his past work on social media. Last year she celebrated the 20th anniversary of Legally Blonde -

in which she plays sorority president-turned-Harvard law student Elle Woods - with a special message about how important the film is to her. 

"Every meme, graduation cap, musical number, Halloween costume, and bend and snap over the past two decades has brought me so much JOY!" he went out "I thought... what will Elle do next?"
