Reese Witherspoon confirms Legally Blonde 3 with awesome nostalgic clip

To everyone's surprise, she gets in. Both comedies were critically and commercially successful, and now Reese Witherspoon will be coming back as Elle Woods for the third time.

It was recently announced that Reese Witherspoon was returning for a third Legally Blonde, and now MGM has revealed when Elle Woods will be back on the big screen. The Oscar-winning actress made the announcement in the most Elle way possible by slipping into her iconic pink sequin bikini in a clip shared to Instagram and Twitter on June 8. Legally Blonde has accumulated a loyal following since its premiere 17 years ago, thanks to Witherspoon's bubbly and honest portrayal of the air-headed sorority girl who chases a boy to Harvard only to realize her true calling as a lawyer. Then, not only does she earn a diploma, she earns a measure of self-respect in the process. The original came out in 2001, and the sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde came out in 2003.

A carefree Witherspoon, 42, floats across a stunning infinity pool in the short video, which she captioned: "It's true. Who would wanna do this?' He said, 'Every actress in Hollywood wants this part" and it was just a lightbulb moment for me that I thought I have to do better.

No further details about Legally Blonde 3 have been released. "And I have to create more and do better for other women, and create opportunities for other women".
