Fans of the 1999 cult classic Cruel Intentions delighted in seeing the film’s three stars – Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar – reunite for a fun outing in Los Angeles. In Reese’s words, it was the "best girls night of the year.”
The trio found the perfect setting for their get-together. They headed out to watch the unauthorised musical parody of Cruel Intentions at Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Feliz.
It has been 16 years since Reese, Selma and Sarah appeared as Annette Hargove, Cecile Caldwell and Kathryn Merteuil respectively in the teen adaptation of the 1792 novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, which also starred Ryan Phillippe as Sebastian Valmont.
It was actually the second time that Sarah had been to the Cruel Intentions musical, having sat front row at the 11 April show. Just a few days later, Ryan – Reese’s ex-husband – went along to watch the parody and posed with cast members backstage.
While Ryan was absent from this week’s reunion, all three ladies took to social media to share their excitement about the girls night. Coincidentally, Thursday also marked the 49th birthday of Cruel Intentions director Roger Krumble, and Selma also shared a throwback photo of herself with "the man who made that movie, one of my favourite people”.
This isn’t the only Nineties reunion that Sarah has had lately. Over the weekend, the actress caught up with her former Buffy The Vampire Slayer co-star Alyson Hannigan to celebrate the third birthday of Alyson’s daughter Keeva.
Of course, all three actresses have come a long way since Cruel Intentions. Oscar-winner Reese can currently be seen in the comedy Hot Pursuit opposite Sofia Vergara, and is reportedly set to play Tinkerbell in Tink, a live action film.
Sarah will next act in the second season of Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels alongside her husband Freddie Prinze Jr, while Selma is filming her new role as Kris Jenner in the FX series American Crime Story, based on the OJ Simpson trial.
