Jennifer Coolidge talks 'Legally Blonde' turning 20, teases 3rd film

·2 min read

Jennifer Coolidge has a lot to say about the 20th anniversary of "Legally Blonde," which occurs on July 13. The "American Pie" actress, who played the lovable and hilarious Paulette Bonafonté, had some thoughts on how the 2001 movie should celebrate its milestone.

"I'm curious if there will be fireworks," Coolidge, 59, joked to Entertainment Tonight. "I don't know what they will do. I feel like it will be a big deal."

She continued: "It's going to be like a giant jet ride to somewhere really far away and I think there must be a party in some big castle or something. At least that's what I will be hoping for."

As for how she feels about "Legally Blonde" turning 20, Coolidge quipped, "All I had to do was age 20 years and I am at the anniversary. I mean, I didn’t even have to work for this. Twenty years went by and then you get credit for, you know, being alive and making it to 20."

"You see, all of the other girls when we made 'Legally Blonde' were like 11," she teased. "My journey was much harder."

The "White Lotus" star was also asked about the upcoming third "Legally Blonde" movie, but refused to reveal anything.

"I have not seen the script," Coolidge said. "I am told Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon are talking about it and I hear it is going to be finished soon. I heard it is close but I haven’t seen it, I really haven’t."

She humorously remarked, "I hope I am alive by then."

"Legally Blonde 3" is set to arrive in theaters in 2022, a little under 20 years since the franchise's second installment -- 2003's "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde" -- hit the box office.

In addition to Coolidge and Witherspoon, "Legally Blonde" also starred Luke Wilson and Selma Blair.
