Reese Witherspoon celebrates 20 years of ‘Legally Blonde’ with rare photos

21

Two decades after the popular rom-com ‘Legally Blonde’ first hit theatres, the beloved film is still near and dear to star Reese Witherspoon’s heart. And her latest Instagram post is proof of that!

The 45-year-old actor, who played Elle Woods in the hit 2001 comedy, celebrated the movie’s 20th anniversary on Tuesday by sharing several rare behind-the-scenes pictures from the film on her Instagram account.

“Omigod you guys ….#LegallyBlonde premiered 20 years ago TODAY!” Witherspoon wrote in the post’s caption.
The Oscar winner went on to say that “playing Elle Woods was the role of a life time and I’m so honoured to have been a part of sharing her story with you all.”

She said, “Time flies when you’re busy using legal jargon in your every day life. But truly… playing Elle Woods was the role of a life time and I’m so honored to have been a part of sharing her story with you all. Every meme, graduation cap, musical number, halloween costume and bend and snap has brought me so much JOY over these past two decades! I wonder… what will Elle do next?”

Some of the images Witherspoon shared included shots from the movie’s alternate ending, which featured Elle sharing a kiss with Emmett (Luke Wilson) on the courthouse steps and a blonde Vivian (Selma Blair).

“Originally it ended at the courthouse right after the trial,” ‘Legally Blonde’ co-writer Karen McCullah told back in 2018.

“Everyone was congratulating Elle, and Emmett came up and gave her a big kiss. Then there was a tag where it was a year in the future and she and Vivian, who was now blond, had started the Blonde Legal Defense Fund and they were in the quad handing out pamphlets,” McCullah added.

Blair, also celebrated ‘Legally Blonde’ turning 20 on Tuesday by sharing rarely-seen photographs from her time on set.
