Some celebs will do anything for their friends. Jennifer Garner wore her marching band uniform in a recent Instagram post. Oh, and it wasn’t for a role that she’s playing in a new movie. Nope. It’s all for Reese Witherspoon. Read on to find out why the actress, and mama, got all dressed up for her friend.

Garner may be totally glam on the big and small screens. But back in her teen years, she was a band geek. During junior high school, in her pre-famous actress days, Garner played the alto sax.

The celeb superstar got her sax out recently to play “Happy Birthday” in honor of Witherspoon’s 42nd bday. And that’s not all. Far from it. Garner dressed in full band uniform regalia, including a tufted feather hat and perfectly pristine white gloves. In the video, which she posted on Instagram, Garner plays the perfect band buddy as she marches to and from the frame.

Of course, this isn’t the only time that Garner has relived her junior high band days. Back in 2016 she played “Mary Had a Little Lamb” on the sax for Vanity Fair during a poolside interview video clip.
