Reese Witherspoon Wants 'Legally Blonde 3' Now Because 'Women Need Positivity'

by Anna Menta

Since it looks like politicians won't save us from 2017, maybe Reese Witherspoon will.

Because according to Reese Witherspoon, there is actually a pretty solid chance of "Legally Blonde 3" happening sometime very soon.

I don't know about you guys, but a movie about smart, feminine, badass lawyer ladies is exactly what this year needs.

Thankfully, it sounds like Reese agrees with me.

In an interview with E! News, the 40-year-old actress said she was definitely on board with another "Legally Blonde" sequel.

She said,

We've thought about it. I need somebody really clever to come up with a great idea and we'll do it. I do think it's a good time to do it. I think women need that kind of positivity right now.

Um, HECK YES, I need that positivity right now, Reese!

This quote might not sound like a very serious commitment to some, but the fact Reese even admitted she and the filmmakers have "thought about" a third film is practically a marriage proposal in Hollywood speak.

And look, yes, "Legally Blonde 2 Red, White & Blonde" was something of a disaster. I will admit that.

Did I enjoy watching my favorite role model recite mediocre dialogue? No. But that's why we need "Legally Blonde 3" — so that Elle Woods can go out on a high note.

Although, even if Reese thinks the timing is right, it might be a little while before her schedule clears up to make this sequel happen.

Currently, the actress is out promoting her new HBO series, "Big Little Lies," based on the best-selling novel by Liane Moriarty, which premieres on February 19.

The show also stars Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Adam Scott and Alexander Skarsgård, so I think it's safe to say it will be a hit.

OK, well if we can't get "Legally Blonde 3," this year, I will settle for this HBO show with its badass lady-driven cast.
