If, like me, you’re feeling a lot of things after watching Ariana Grande‘s ‘Thank U, Next’ video then prepare yourselves because the OG stars of the iconic 00s films referenced in the music video have reacted to it in the very best ways.
The five minute and 30 second experience threw us back to the times of Mean Girls, Suddenly 30, Bring It On, and goddamn Legally Blonde with a blessed cameo from Jennifer Coolidge AKA Paulette Bonafonté who has not aged a day.
Firstly, Mean Girls gave Grande the greatest honour of all.
You can definitely sit with us…this is like, a really huge deal.— Mean Girls (@MeanGirls) November 30, 2018
Jennifer Garner, star of the beloved Suddenly 30 shared the music video to her Instagram with the caption: “Every now and then something comes along and just brightens your day. @arianagrande you’re adorable. Thank you, pretty girl.”
They even got the same bloody detailing in the house.

Back on Garner’s Insta, Grande commented she had “watched this movie every night before bed growing up” and thanked Garner for being her inspiration. SO THEN, Garner replied that she and costars Mark Ruffalo and Judy Greer “will THRILLER with you any day of the week and twice on Sundays.”
AND THEN: “We’ll even ask @reesewitherspoon to bring her bend and snap.”
she's gonna shit her pants when she sees this pic.twitter.com/lJhFcQneE6— yiğit (@howimoveyou) December 1, 2018
Speaking of incredibly nice human being Ruffalo, he also tweeted his support for the video with THIS:
Just a tad overwhelmed, Grande retweeted the kind words three times to her feed and honestly, can’t blame her.
one more time. i'll log out now. i can't handle this shit. https://t.co/PPEzPP3Gsb— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) December 1, 2018
Not an OG star but still a babe Kris Jenner – who utters the words “Thank u, next, bitch” in the video – wrote “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.”
Jonathan Bennett, the real Aaron Samuels from Mean Girls put it simply.
And last but not least we have Reese Witherspoon, star of the heavenly film Legally Blonde.
In the music video, Grande does her own version of The Bend and Snap which Witherspoon LOVED and rated 10/10. As Grande revealed – “we tried to put our own twist on it so legal wouldn’t come for us.”
omg we tried to put our own twist on it so legal wouldn’t come for us but THANK U. this is the biggest honor. love u more than words. ???? https://t.co/BKHjCgS9jk— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 30, 2018
Also, Troye Sivan looking like an angel.
Happy 1st day of December.
Ariana Grande and Jennifer Coolidge doing the bend and snap has given me the energy to live for at least another year— jon (@prasejeebus) November 30, 2018
