Reese Witherspoon Just Recreated One of Legally Blonde’s Most Iconic Scenes

According to the Hollywood trade, the third movie - plot unknown - will be "much in the spirit of the first film", when optimistic Elle headed to Harvard Law to prove that her sorority pink lifestyle didn't exclude her from scholastic and professional success.

Reese Witherspoon confirmed she is returning as the ditzy, yet lovable lawyer in Legally Blonde 3.

To everyone's surprise, she gets in. In the clip, Elle is wearing a pink bikini on a pool float, just like she was in the video essay she sent in with her Harvard Law School application.

Witherspoon tweeted, "It's true", with a video of herself in character as Elle. Then, not only does she earn a diploma, she earns a measure of self-respect in the process. She originated the role in the 2001 comedy and reprised it for 2003'sLegally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. Witherspoon is now filming season two of HBO's hit drama series Big Little Lies and is in pre-production on her untitled TV project for Apple, starring alongside Jennifer Aniston in a series that is said to be a behind-the-scenes look at a morning TV show broadcast from NY.

"I think it'd be kind of a cool thing to have her be a Supreme Court Justice or somebody who runs for office, like president", Witherspoon said during a podcast in 2015.

No further details about Legally Blonde 3 have been released.
