“That was Reese’s choice,” Coolidge told New York Daily News.
Witherspoon first appeared as Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde” in 2001, playing the rich pink-loving airhead who proves her smarts when she enrolls in law school. Coolidge played the part of the sidekick as Elle’s best friend Paulette. They both appeared in the 2003 sequel. The storyline has gone on to find success as a musical.
“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,” Coolidge says of her former co-star.
