Reese Witherspoon & Wild's Cheryl Strayed React to 'Gilmore Girls' Shout Outs!

CAUTION! Minor spoilers ahead if you haven’t finished Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix!

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life‘s episodes of Summer and Fall heavily mentioned the hit movie and book Wild, written by Cheryl Strayed and starring Reese Witherspoon (as Cheryl).

“Gobsmacked & honored by the Wild homage in @gilmoregirls Year in the Life. I watched it yesterday with my daughter, Bobbi (who is named after my mother). Like so many people, in Lorelai and Rory, I see pieces of myself, my mother, and my daughter. That scene when Lorelai wanders behind the closed store near the trail and looks out across the wild landscape then calls her mom? Took my breath away and made me cry (after laughing at so many others parts). I reached for my daughter’s hand and told her someday she’d understand why I was crying. She said, “I understand already, Mom.” Amy Sherman-Palladino, Daniel Palladino, Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and all the people who made this show: thank you. Y’all touched so many of our hearts. #gilmoregirls #staywild,” Cheryl wrote on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Reese took to Twitter to express her thoughts!
