Recently, the 39-year-old actress and producer got fans excited when she hinted that she might reprise her role as Elle Woods at some point in the future, and that she has a great idea for the plot of the third film.

In Hollywood, that's about as far from actually happening as you can get. But that doesn't mean it's not possible. After all, the Oscar winning star says that it's the perfect time for a new film following the lovable and self-possessed Elle Woods.
"I think it's a really great time to talk about women in politics because we need more women in politics," Witherspoon shared. "We're 50 percent of the population but we're only 17 percent of the government. We need some balance there."
