Reese Witherspoon has a lot going on in life, like… I dunno, getting drunk and arrested? And movies, I guess. Just not Legally Blonde 3 – she turned that down, according to Jennifer Coolidge. There were plans to do a third movie and everyone was game for it until Reese put the breaks on it. That’s okay, no hard feelings!

From New York Daily News (via DS):

“That was Reese’s choice [not to make the third film].”

Coolidge added: “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.”

To be honest, I’ve only seen the first movie and not even the entire thing, I don’t think, so this sorta doesn’t matter to me, but um… it was great from what I saw of it? I hardly think the world of cinema is going to die without a third one, though. After all, sequels do tend to get progressively worse.
