Reese Witherspoon Confirms She’ll Return as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 3

By  | 

Earlier this week, it was reported that Legally Blonde 3 is a go and that Reese Witherspoon was set to reprise her iconic role of Elle Woods for the threequel. While the news seemed pretty accurate, it wasn’t official, as the blonde beauty was reportedly still in talks with MGM. We guess all that talking worked because the 42-year-old actress just confirmed that LB3 is, in fact, happening, AND that she’ll be returning as Elle.

Reese slipped on the sequined pink bikini Elle wore in her Harvard Law application video in the first film and jumped in the pool to tell fans the good news.

“It’s true… #LegallyBlonde3” she captioned the vid.

Legally Blonde was released in 2001 and quickly became a fan-favorite. The flick’s sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, came out two years later.

We don’t know anything about which, if any, other cast members are returning, or what the plot will be about. We do know, however, that Reese is going to be one of the producers on the film, so we already know it’s going to be AMAZING and fans feel the same.
