Is this the return of our fave Gemini vegetarian? Reese Witherspoon teased a third ‘Legally Blonde’ movie in a new interview on Oct. 22, and she has a pure gold idea for the sequel: Elle Woods as President of the United States!
Reese Witherspoon, 39, is so ready for another Legally Blonde movie. While on Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe, Reese brought up the possibility of Legally Blonde 3 — her hope is that Elle Woods would be president in it! She then outlined the policies Elle would enact as POTUS. Okay, we need Hollywood to make this movie ASAP — what, like it’s hard?!
Reese announced on Rachel Zoe that she thinks the “world is ready” for Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 3: “A lot of writers over the years have come up with different ideas for it,” she revealed. “I actually think it’s kind of great right now because we’re talking about women in politics and how important that is to get more women. And I think it’d be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court justice or someone who runs for office, like president!” An all-pink Oval Office? We would die!
“I think we’re ready to see Elle and see what she’s up to lately,” Reese added. She said that making another movie in this series isn’t her call (“I don’t know…call MGM. I have no idea”), but Reese has proved herself to be influential behind the scenes. As the producer of two major films — Gone Girl and Wild — maybe she’ll help get another Legally Blonde film off the ground! Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde was made all the way back in 2003, and it’s high time for Elle Woods to grace our screens with the bend-and-snap once again. The Broadway musical in 2007 didn’t really cut it — we want more!
HollywoodLifers, would you die if they made another Legally Blonde movie? Tell us in the comments what you’d like to see happen in third sequel!
