It’s been more than 17 years since Elle Woods taught moviegoers the bend-and-snap, and now Reese Witherspoon is preparing to reprise her role as everyone’s favorite Harvard Law grad in Legally Blonde 3.
On Monday, ET’s Brooke Anderson caught up with Witherspoon at the Hollywood premiere of her new docu-series, Shine On With Reese, and the 42-year-old actress was eager to chat about the highly anticipated sequel.
“Oh, it’s gonna be so fun!” the Oscar winner gushed. “I got to go to a meeting the other day where we talked about all the new plot points and all the characters and some returning characters and some new characters. I mean, I got so excited just in the meeting. I was like, ‘This is gonna be good.’”
Always a pro, Witherspoon quipped that she couldn’t tell us a single thing about what Elle Woods is up to these days, but all in good time.
The actress initially confirmed the news about Legally Blonde 3 in an Instagram video back in June. The film is currently set to be released on Valentine’s Day 2020, and it will be the first time fans have seen Elle Woods since 2003’s Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. The movie was also turned into a Broadway musical in 2007.
One Witherspoon character fans will be seeing sooner rather than later is the feisty Madeline Martha Mackenzie on the second season of Big Little Lies. After the actress was photographed launching an ice cream cone at Meryl Streep on the set of the HBO drama, she had a thing or two to say about the incident.
“Yes, I did that. It’s a top 5 moment in my career for sure,” she noted, adding, “But I can’t remember the other four.”
