Reese Witherspoon Shares Childhood Girl Scout Photo (& Wow, She Looks Exactly the Same)

Reese Witherspoon just proved with this vintage picture that she has barely changed over the years.

The Legally Blonde actress must have been digging through old photo albums, because she decided to share a rare snap from her days of being a Girl Scout. She posted the throwback to her Instagram, saying: "I bet you can guess who sold the most cookies for Troop 1077. @girlscouts."

In the photo, a young Witherspoon is dressed in a delightfully official outfit, including a white button-up and blue neckerchief with the signature Girl Scout green vest and pants. The troop number 1077 is visible on the vest, as well as some patches and a ribbon.

While the 44-year-old actress was a proud scout back in the day, she has shown her continuing support for the organization (and especially its cookies) in previous social media posts. Last February, she shared a boomerang of herself pouring a box of Thin Mints onto a plate and said, "Just doing my part to support the dreams of young female entrepreneurs... #teamthinmints."

Witherspoon's celebrity friends were clearly in love with the pic, like Mindy Kaling who commented, "REESE," and Natalie Portman who said, "Whaaaaaa? The cutest." Bryce Dallas Howard showed her appreciation for Witherspoon's cookie-selling accomplishment, saying: "Yes she did;)."

We would certainly buy some cookies from little Reese if she showed up at our door.
