Rom-com fans, listen up! Julia Roberts just answered all our prayers when she gave us the ultimate '90s flashback on Instagram this past week. In a frankly adorable video, the actress re-created one of the most iconic scenes from her 1997 hit My Best Friend's Wedding as she jammed out to "I Say a Little Prayer," giving us all nostalgia. The best part? Roberts's gal pals Penélope Cruz and Kate Winslet were there to sing along!
At Lancôme's Stars & Wonders gala in Monaco, California, on Wednesday, April 19, one of the bands playing at the event covered Dionne Warwick's 1967 classic tune "I Say a Little Prayer," according to People. Cue the My Best Friend's Wedding flashbacks!
In case you've skipped the 1997 rom-com classic (first of all, shame on you), the entire cast breaks out into spontaneous singing at one point, with stars Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Rupert Everett, and Dermot Mulroney all crooning "I Say a Little Prayer" in the middle of a restaurant. It's ridiculously silly, totally iconic, and rom-com gold.
And sitting in the Stars & Wonders audience on Wednesday, Roberts relived the famous scene. When the band began playing the song, Penélope Cruz, of all people, jumped up to lead an impromptu singalong, recording the magical moment for the 'Gram. Getting up from her table, Cruz headed over to Kate Winslet who joined in, literally standing on her chair to rock out. Then Cruz went to find Roberts, the star of the iconic scene herself!
The rom-com star immediately started shaking to the beat and singing those burned-into-your-brain lyrics, basically replicating the My Best Friend's Wedding rehearsal dinner where she first sings the tune. Ahh, so much nostalgia!
All we can say is thank you to Penélope Cruz for giving us the blast from the past we needed this morning. You're the real MVP.
