Does This Mean a Legally Blonde 3 Is Coming Soon?

Can you believe it's been over 15 years since Legally Blonde first hit theaters? Last summer, Reese Witherspoon commemorated the anniversary with an adorable Instagram tribute, but now she's looking ahead and revealing new info about a possible third installment of the flick.

In an interview with E! Online, Witherspoon explained exactly why she thinks Legally Blonde 3 should happen in the near future. "I do think it's a good time to do it," she told the site about filming another sequel. "I think women need that kind of positivity right now."

Witherspoon, who stars in HBO's upcoming show Big Little Lies, went on to explain how she is very mindful about which roles she plays: "It's a great privilege to be a woman in America," she told E! Online. "We have many rights and freedoms that a lot of women don't have all over the world. I try to celebrate that. I try to live that to its utmost, particularly the freedom of speech, being able to express myself, [and] create shows like this to show how important women are in our world." Head over to E! Online to read the full interview and learn more about her new show.
