Cary Elwes Reprised His Role From 'The Princess Bride' For A Commercial, And It's Made Us Believe In True Love Again

- Page 1

Cary Elwes is a veteran actor of stage and screen, and he's had plenty of memorable roles in movies like Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Liar Liar, and Saw. However, chances are, you know him best as Westley from The Princess Bride.

As the young farm boy who disappears, becomes a Dread Pirate, returns to save his true love Buttercup, and fights a combination of Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, and Wallace Shawn to get to her, Elwes was pretty much everybody's favorite swashbuckling action hero while growing up. He was unmatched with a sword, quick-thinking, and of course, witty as hell.

However, what always shone through was his unabashed, genuine love for Buttercup and the fact that he would do absolutely anything to save her. I mean, he even comes to death's door and has to be revived by a literal miracle in his quest!

This is of course helped out by the fact that Elwes and co-star Robin Wright were absolutely smitten with each other during filming, which definitely shines through in the performance. Ultimately though, the point is, for most of us, Elwes is never not going to be Westley.

Well apparently we're not the only ones who think so, because Elwes himself reprised the role for a charming as hell commercial for Culligan Water, and it's every bit as amazing as you'd think!
