New York: Actress Reese Witherspoon turned down the chance to make `Legally Blonde 3` because she wasn`t interested in reprising her role as lawyer, Elle Woods.
The 37-year-old actress has played the ditzy lawyer in `Legally Blonde` and `Legally Blonde: Red, White and Blonde`, but will not be part of the third installment.
Jennifer Coolidge, who played Elle`s friend Paulette in the films, said, "That was Reese`s choice."
However, despite Witherspoon`s reluctance to rejoin forces, Coolidge had nothing but praise for the star, claiming that she made the movie a success.
"She`s such a good actress. It was weird, she carried `Legally Blonde`. She had a baby at home or two babies at home and she was doing `Legally Blonde` during the day. It was bizarre how much that girl can handle. I was blown away by her," she said.
