Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Reese Witherspoon transformed into “Pink Lady” Elle Woods from her hit movie Legally Blonde to send a hopeful message to a four-year-old boy battling cancer.

The Oscar-winning actress sent the message to four-year-old Will after learning that he was a big fan of Legally Blonde.

“This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine. Will -- I hear that you’re fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you’ve been watching a lot of Legally Blonde and loving it. I hope it makes you laugh!”

Witherspoon captioned an Instagram photo of herself holding a sign with the hashtag “Team Will.”

“I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor -- and I’m sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers. Just know -- I’m a really big fan of YOURS!” Witherspoon wrote. “PS anyone else – feel free to make your own sign for Will and post it with the hashtag #TeamWill so he can see it. ...I’m sure he’d love that!”

In addition, the mother of three made a short YouTube video titled “The Pink Lady’s Message To Will.”

FOX via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Even animated characters are accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

In a new video released online, a shirtless Homer Simpson takes on the challenge. He nominates his neighbor Ned Flanders -- twice -- his co-worker Lenny and Donald Trump before spilling a glass of water on his head.

However, Bart then dumps gallons of water, plus penguins, a bear, hockey players, a snowman, Santa Claus, an ice cream truck and more, on his unsuspecting dad from a helicopter.  

The 26th season of The Simpsons premieres on Fox on September 28. You can catch up on previous seasons by tuning in to the ongoing Simpsons marathon on FXX, which concludes on Labor Day.

Elsewhere in celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge news, Bridesmaids actor Chris O'Dowd got drenched in a video in which he nominated "Baby O'Porter," thus revealing that he and wife Dawn O'Porter are expecting a child. Dawn is seen pouring water on her baby bump.

So far, the Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $94.3 million for the ALS Association.

Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- Joan Rivers has been rushed to a New York City hospital after an emergency call that she was in cardiac arrest, according to a law enforcement source. According to the New York City Fire Department, Rivers is in critical condition.

Rivers was transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital Thursday morning after receiving a call that a woman was in cardiac arrest at an Upper East Side clinic, ABC News confirmed.

TMZ reported earlier that Rivers was having surgery on her vocal chords at the clinic.

Rivers' rep had no other information immediately available when contacted by ABC News.

Later on Thursday, E! Online tweeted that Rivers was in "critical but stable condition."

Rivers, 81, had been hard at work of late, co-hosting her E! TV show Fashion Police and doing stand-up comedy. According to Ticketmaster, she had seven shows planned across the U.S. for November.

"Ignore aging: Comedy is the one place it doesn’t matter. It matters in singing because the voice goes. It matters certainly in acting because you’re no longer the sexpot. But in comedy, if you can tell a joke, they will gather around your deathbed," she wrote in The Hollywood Reporter in 2012. "If you’re funny, you’re funny. Isn’t that wonderful?"
