Reese Witherspoon - Jennifer Coolidge: 'Reese Witherspoon Turned Down Legally Blonde 3'

Reese Witherspoon torpedoed plans to bring her hit film Legally Blonde back to the big screen in a third film, according to her co-star Jennifer Coolidge.

The Oscar winner played ditsy school girl-turned-lawyer Elle Woods in two films, the 2001 original and 2003 sequel Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, alongside Coolidge as her confidante Paulette.

Coolidge has now revealed movie bosses put together plans to revive the franchise with a third installment, but Witherspoon refused to take part, telling the New York Daily News, "That was Reese's choice (not to make the third film)."

However, Coolidge remains full of praise for the Walk The Line star, adding, "She's such a good actress. It was weird, she carried Legally Blonde. She had a baby at home or two babies at home and she was doing Legally Blonde during the day. It was bizarre how much that girl can handle. I was blown away by her."
