Reese Witherspoon has dealt with the challenges of COVID-19 like the rest of the world. We’ve been in this together since the start. Most of us felt the strains of COVID-19 in unimaginable ways. It changed life as most of us know it forever. COVID-19 is still swirling among us and we’ve now developed what is known as a ‘new norm.’
Now that the pandemic is somewhat better contained and lives are resuming some type of normalcy, Witherspoon chose to use her celebrity status to help a few people smile. Most of us can relate to the disaster known as 2020 and likely have a few horror stories to share. But, laughing is the best medicine, especially during times like this. Witherspoon decided to garner laughs with her 2020 meme challenge. Everyone has the opportunity to show how COVID-19 and the other events of the year have shaped their lives.
For a brief moment, Witherspoon provided us a way to forget the world’s problems and laugh for a second. Everyone needs this moment.
The New #2020MemeChallenge Witherspoon Style
Witherspoon shared a three-by-three collage featuring a selfie from her favorite movies. The collage begins with photos of the Hollywood actress in her Elle Woods in Legally Blonde role enjoying life with her southern sweet smile. January and February certainly brought us cold days and plenty of snow, but little did we know what the following months would bring!
Each month features a different actress in various roles and portraying different emotions and appearances to describe the month in a pcture. By August, Witherspoon posts a shot of Cheryl Strayed in Wild, distressed and frazzled. Maybe the remainder of the year will show us better days and better months!
Reese kept the meme simple and sweet, adding the caption “Yup. #2020callenge.”
Really, that caption sums up this year perfectly. Everyone knows its been one of the most eventurful, challenging years ever. No descriptions needed to detail this crisis!
