The “Wrinkle in Time” star turned 42 on Thursday and Garner showed her some social media love by sharing a video of herself in full marching band regalia playing “Happy Birthday” on a saxophone.
In the Instagram clip, Garner pivots toward the camera before launching into a very passionate performance of the birthday song. After it’s over, she flashes a big smile before marching off into the distance.
Garner is a proud former “band geek” and played alto saxophone (she dubbed hers “Sally the Sexy Saxophone”) in the John Adams Middle School marching band when she was a teenager.
She reunited with the instrument for Vanity Fair back in 2016 to show off some of her secret skills and busted out a rendition of “Mary Had A Little Lamb.”
Garner even tipped her hat to her musical past when she attended a Texas A&M football game in October, declaring, “Once a band geek, always a band geek.”
We fully expect Witherspoon to pay it forward for Garner’s birthday in April with a symphony-backed birthday tribute, OK?
