‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ Stars Reunite 18 Years Later

‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ Stars Reunite 18 Years Later

The bond lives on! The ladies of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are as close as ever, and they proved that this weekend when they reunited to celebrate America Ferrera’s role in Barbie.

Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, and Amber Tamblyn showed up for a SAG-AFTRA-hosted Barbie screening in New York City this weekend to support Ferrera, who played Gloria in the film.

The four, who first met while filming their 2005 classic, donned their best doll attire and stood together for pictures. Someone captured a highlight video of the gathering, and Ferrera posted it on Instagram.

“The Sisterhood came through all in pink to celebrate my performance in Barbie last night,” she wrote. “I love these women with all my heart.”

The clip shows the friends hugging, smiling, and flashing funny faces for selfies. Ferrara stood out in a white dress while the other three chose to wear Barbie-themed looks.

The Friends Hope to Reunite Again For ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3’

The actresses have famously remained close since starring in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and the sequel, which premiered in 2008. With all of the ladies being successful stars, it’s not easy to get everyone together at once, but they manage to talk often. And it’s not uncommon for two or three of them to get together.

“America Ferrara, Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel — those are three women who I met when I was 16 years old,” Lively told People in 2020. “And I’ve been lucky to call them my friends and mentors ever since.

According to Lively, their relationships began with shared morals and goals, and the glue was thick enough to remain nearly 20 years later.

“What they do  — whether artistically, politically, socially, personally — they really use their voice,” she continued. “And whether people agree with their voice or not is not the thing that I’m most concerned with as much as it’s nice to see women who are not only empowering themselves but empowering other women to stand up and to really fight and work for what they believe in.”

The bond is so strong that all four of the stars would like to return to the screen for a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3.

“We love each other,” Ferrara also told People. “And we love this series, and we are so proud of the work that we did together that it would be wonderful to come back [and] do another one.”
