Reese Witherspoon - Reese Witherspoon refused Legally Blonde 3

Reese Witherspoon turned down 'Legally Blonde 3'.

The 37-year-old actress - who played ditzy lawyer Elle Woods in 'Legally Blonde' and 'Legally Blonde: Red, White and Blonde' - has refused to take part in a third movie because she's not interested in reprising her role.

Jennifer Coolidge - who played Elle's pal Paulette in the films - told New York Daily News: ''That was Reese's choice.''

However, despite Reese's reluctance to rejoin forces, Coolidge had nothing but praise for the star, claiming that she made the movie a success.

She explained: ''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.''

Meanwhile, the actress has been snapped up for the lead role in the big screen adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's best-selling novel, 'Wild', which is based on a screenplay from Nick Hornby.

The book and movie is centred on a 26-year-old woman who finds herself at a crossroads in life following the end of her marriage and death of her mother, and so decides to do a 1,000 mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail all by herself.

The 'Mud' star will also produce the drama through her Pacific Standard production company alongside Bruce Papandrea and Bill Pohlad.
