Tara Reid doesn't understand the success of the 'Sharknado' franchise.

The 39-year-old actress - who previously starred in 'American Pie' and 'The Big Lebowski' - is surprised by the popularity of the movies, saying they are all ''ridiculous''.

She told Fox News: ''I didn't think there would be a second, and now we're up to a trilogy.

''All the time, I'm thinking, 'How am I going to pull this off? How am I going to say this dialogue? You've got to be kidding me.' It's ridiculous, and I have to say it seriously. But somehow it works.''

Meanwhile, Tara recently hinted that a new 'American Pie' film is in the works.

The blonde actress - who appeared in the original 'American Pie' in 1999, as well as two sequels, 'American Pie 2' and 'American Reunion' - suggested another film could be added to the series, with the movie set in Las Vegas.

She said: ''There's actually talks about [a fifth movie], they may be doing it in Las Vegas.''

Previously, it was believed that 'American Reunion', which hit cinema screens in 2012 following a nine-year hiatus, would be the final film in the series.
