As Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling were doing press for their latest movie "A Wrinkle in Time" Tuesday, one entertainment reporter thought it would be the ideal time to present Witherspoon with 15,000 words on one of her best-known movies... and the actress absolutely loved it.

This really could have gone either way, and with interview time so precious, it really was a gamble.

"I wrote a 15,000 word dissertation on Legally Blonde at University, and somehow the universe let me give it to Reese Witherspoon herself", Ford writes on Twitter.

During the interview, Witherspoon said that the essay "really touches [her] heart".

Deandre Ayton is clearly the best player in college basketball, and I think Virginia will be overmatched by them in the Elite 8. Providence has bounced out in the round of 64 in three of the last four years, going 1-4 against the spread in the tournament .

And if you want to have a read of Ford's 15,000 words yourself, you can. "I wrote my university dissertation on Legally Blonde and strong female characters", Lucy told Reese. The moment was made even more awesome by Kaling and Oprah, who looked over at the huge document, both whispering "Wow".

While Ford conducted her interview after giving Witherspoon the dissertation, Witherspoon made sure to ask her one burning question that Elle Woods most definitely would have approved of before their time ended.

As fans of Reese Witherspoon well know, the Oscar victor famously played ambitious sorority girl-turned-Harvard Law School valedictorian Elle Woods back in 2001's Legally Blonde, inspiring countless girls to pursue their dreams no matter the doubt and boundaries in their paths.

"I actually put perfume on it before I left", Lucy said to which Reese responded, "I know you did!"
