America Ferrera's 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants' co-stars celebrate her

The magic of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants remains. America Ferrera, Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel and Amber Tamblyn star in first of two movies about a group of jeans-wearing best friends Department, 18 years later, the four actors once again came together to support Ferrera at a Barbie screening and Q&A. The event was held on December 15 in New York City as part of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations Series.

Forever blue and pink

Ferreira posted a video of their reunion on Instagram, her caption expressing how touched she was by the appearance of her three old friends. "The sorority all dressed in pink to celebrate my performance in Barbie last night," she wrote. "I love these women with all my heart."

In the video, the foursome posed cutely for photos (including selfies) and exchanged warm greetings. As Ferrera mentioned in her caption, Lively, Bledel, and Tamblyn all made the effort to wear pink. That's enough to warm fans' hearts, but Ferrera took the nostalgia up a notch by adding audio from the movie, in which Bledel's character Lena says: "You can call me crazy, but from science There's no way a pair of pants could fit me," and everyone else chimed in with "And me."

Fans - including Barbie 's Nicola Coughlan (Diplomat Barbie) - loved it. "All the emotions!!" Coughlan wrote in the comments. Another fan added, "OMG YES CHILDHOOD IS FINALLY GONE!!!," while someone else said, "Seeing this made this movie even better [sic]."

Sisterhood is eternal

The four women's real-life friendship has been well-documented over the years. The friendship they formed on the set of the 2005 film continued into the 2008 sequel and subsequent films. During that time, they experienced huge life changes, such as getting married and having children. Tamblyn discussed the key to their longevity in May 2017, telling Bustle it's all about "patience."

"I think patience is good in any friendship, you know? Especially poor Blake (Lively)," she said of the then-mother of two (now four). "She has two kids. So, sometimes I'll text her and you don't hear back for a week and you're like, 'Hello?' ! "Oh, I forgot, you have two kids under two. This is crazy."

It also helps that they support each other. Tamblyn further shared with Bustle how her Sisterhood co-stars supported her when she made her directorial debut in 2017, Paint It Black . “We all care about each other’s affairs and support each other,” she said.
