Reese Witherspoon has finally shared the recipe for her favourite green smoothie with fans.

The Legally Blonde actress took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a video in which she explained that she skips breakfast and has the healthy drink each day about 10 or 11am.

“This is the smoothie that I drink every single day, and I have probably for eight years, nine years, I don’t even know,” she said, noting that she doesn’t get hungry again until about 1pm. “It has a lot of vegetables in it.”

After explaining that the recipe is inspired by Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie, Reese took two heads of romaine lettuce, fresh spinach, celery, one pear, one apple, a banana, one lemon, as well as half a cup of coconut water and popped them into a blender.

Depending on what is in her fridge at the time, she will also sometimes add in other green vegetables, a scoop of protein powder, or some almond butter.

“You can put in anything green (from) the refrigerator. If you have lettuce and you didn’t make that salad that you wanted to make, you can put it in there,” the 44-year-old said, before insisting that the smoothie is delicious. “I know it looks like it tastes gross. But it tastes so good! It’s so good, I love it so much.”

And elsewhere in the clip, Reese credited her Little Fires Everywhere co-star Kerry Washington with introducing her to the recipe a decade ago.

“I sat next to (Kerry) at an awards show and I didn’t really know her, but I said, ‘Your skin is so beautiful. What do you do?’ and she said, ‘I think it’s from this drink that I drink. It’s really changed my skin and it makes my hair and nails really strong.’ So thank you, Kerry, for sharing the recipe,” she smiled.

Mindy Kaling to co-write Legally Blonde 3

Mindy Kaling has signed on to co-write Legally Blonde 3. Rumours of a follow-up to the 2001 comedy and its 2003 sequel have been swirling for years, but Reese Witherspoon confirmed she would be reprising her role as sorority girl-turned-lawyer Elle Woo…

Mindy Kaling has signed on to co-write Legally Blonde 3.

Rumours of a follow-up to the 2001 comedy and its 2003 sequel have been swirling for years, but Reese Witherspoon confirmed she would be reprising her role as sorority girl-turned-lawyer Elle Woods for a third instalment back in 2018 and the script has been in development ever since.

According to Deadline, Witherspoon’s friend and A Wrinkle in Time co-star Kaling has been hired to write the script with Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor.

It was previously announced that the franchise’s original scribes Kirsten ‘Kiwi’ Smith and Karen McCullah would be penning the screenplay, but according to the publication, Kaling and Goor won’t be doing a makeover on that script but writing a completely new take.

Legally Blonde 3 marks the second feature film Kaling and Goor have written together following a wedding comedy starring The Mindy Project creator and Priyanka Chopra. That project was won by Universal executives in a heated auction last year. Kaling’s recent solo writing credits include Late Night, starring herself and Emma Thompson, the TV version of Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Netflix’s Never Have I Ever.

The news comes shortly after Luke Wilson, who played Elle’s love interest Emmett in the movies, told Entertainment Tonight that he hadn’t talked to Witherspoon about the third film but “always kind of hears rumours here and there”.

“Never anything official about them doing another Legally Blonde, but I’d love to do another one,” the 48-year-old continued. “I mean, just that character Reese played was so funny at the time and that has kind of become this iconic character now.”

Witherspoon will also be producing the follow-up via her Hello Sunshine banner alongside the franchise’s original producer Marc Platt.

Luke Wilson has not yet discussed a potential Legally Blonde revival with Reese Witherspoon.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Old School actor was asked about the possible third instalment in the hit movie series.

In response, Luke admitted that while he’s “not talked to Reese about it”, he “always kind of hears rumours here and there”.

“Never anything official about them doing another Legally Blonde, but I’d love to do another one,” the 48-year-old continued. “I mean, just that character Reese played was so funny at the time and that has kind of become this iconic character now.”

Luke portrayed Emmett Richmond, the love interest of Reese’s Elle Woods – the naive sorority girl who tries to win back her ex-boyfriend by enrolling in Harvard Law School – in the original 2001 film.

He reprised the role for the 2003 sequel, Legally Blonde: Red, White & Blonde, and when it comes to ideas for a third flick, the star is certain the couple will have started a family.

“I would say they definitely have a few children and I just think that it’d be really funny if Reese had a little mini-me, a version of herself,” Luke added. “I would definitely think that they’d have a couple of children.”

Last year, Reese teased the possibility of a third instalment during a chat with Entertainment Tonight and insisted she wanted to reunite the original cast.

“It’s just a development project right now, so we’ll see,” she shared. “I love Jennifer Coolidge and Luke Wilson and Selma Blair and so there’s so many great characters that people love.”

Jennifer Lopez urged pal Reese Witherspoon to get cracking on another Legally Blonde sequel during an impromptu Instagram Live chat on Monday.

The Big Little Lies actress called on the superstar to touch base during the coronavirus lockdown and chat about her new Quibi show Thanks a Million, and was stunned to learn the Jenny from the Block hitmaker and her family had been watching her 2001 movie Legally Blonde.

“Oh, my God, we watched Legally Blonde the other day,” Lopez said. “Literally, like, four days ago. Oh, my God, I forgot… I can’t believe I didn’t tell you. They loved it. Loved it. It was so much fun. You were so amazing in that. It’s so great… And then my daughter’s like, ‘I want to know what happens to her’. And I said, ‘There’s a 2 and a 3, I believe’.”

Witherspoon quickly corrected her, adding, “Well, no, there’s a 2 but I’m thinking we might be working on a 3.”

And Lopez responded by encouraging her to make it happen.

“You should. You should. That character was so amazing and so empowering and inspiring,” she gushed. “Yeah, it’s great for girls.”

Witherspoon, who recently revealed the next Legally Blonde sequel is “in development”, then turned the tables on her pal, urging J.Lo to return to Las Vegas for another residency.

“One of my biggest regrets is that I didn’t see you in Vegas,” Witherspoon said.

“You never know, I might wind up back in Vegas doing another residency,” Lopez responded. “Right now, I think I’m going to be touring the next couple of years once this all kind of gets back in order and people start going to concerts again, but I’m going to send for you. I’m going to send you tickets and you’re going to have to come.”

Margot Robbie studied Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods to prepare for Bombshell role

Margot Robbie studied Reese Witherspoon’s character from Legally Blonde to prepare for her role in Bombshell.

The 29-year-old Australian actress plays the young and enthusiastic Fox News staffer Kayla Pospisil in the new movie, who is a composite character created by screenwriter Charles Randolph to highlight the widespread sexual harassment and abuse conducted by late network chief Roger Ailes.

Margot told Variety that she struggled to understand the conservative character, but was inspired by Reese as Elle Woods from the 2001 comedy, as she was “incredibly smart” but “underestimated because of their looks”, just like Kayla.

“Every day, I’d do the monologue from Legally Blonde,” she added.

The Oscar-nominated actress also did some secret social media sleuthing to further understand her character’s political leanings, and created a fake Twitter account to work out what motivates “young millennial conservative girls”.

“I didn’t understand her to begin with,” she explained to Variety. “But my process is to do a ton of research, consider every single option, know every single situation, scenario, thought and motivation inside and out, so I can step onto set and then let it all go.”

Margot revealed she was urged by Bombshell director Jay Roach to watch footage of Katherine Harris, Florida’s former secretary of state, to perfect her dialect in the movie. The Republican politician became famous during the aftermath of the George W. Bush v. Al Gore presidential election of 2000, and was also played by Laura Dern in Roach’s HBO movie Recount back in 2008.

“I just love the sounds of her vowels – they’re incredible,” Margot shared.

Bombshell, which also stars Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman, is in cinemas now.

Kim Kardashian asked for Reese Witherspoon’s approval before wearing her Legally Blonde-inspired look for Halloween.

The reality TV star is following in her late attorney father Robert Kardashian’s footsteps by training to become a lawyer, and last Thursday, decided to transform into Witherspoon’s bubbly sorority girl-turned-Harvard Law School student character Elle Woods for a bash.

Sharing several snaps on her Instagram page, Kardashian donned a pink dress and blonde wig, and also uploaded a video showing her parodying Woods’s famous Harvard admissions video essay.

The look was met with acclaim from fans, as well as Witherspoon, who commented, “Elle Woods forever,” adding the 100 emoji.

And speaking to Entertainment Tonight Canada, Witherspoon revealed Kardashian actually reached out to her for her blessing before debuting the costume.

“She actually wrote me and said, ‘I’m gonna do it.’ And I was like ‘Go for it!'” The Morning Show actress said. “It turned out great. She did a great job.”

“I’m impressed with that!” her co-star in the Apple TV+ series, Jennifer Aniston, added.

Aniston hadn’t yet seen the clip, but after her pal gushed over the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s project, she enthused: “That’s incredible, you have to show me that!”

Meanwhile, a third Legally Blonde movie is currently in the works, with Witherspoon hoping co-stars Jennifer Coolidge, Luke Wilson and Selma Blair will return for the flick.

Reese Witherspoon is hoping to reunite with her original Legally Blonde castmates on the upcoming third movie in the popular franchise.

The actress will reprise her role as Elle Woods, a naive sorority girl who tries to win back her ex-boyfriend by enrolling into Harvard Law School, in the reboot.

Reese’s flick will follow on from the 2001 original and its 2003 sequel, and a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, she speculated over which fan favourites may return for the feature.

“It’s just a development project right now, so we’ll see,” she told reporters at a screening of her new Apple TV+ series The Morning Show at the Paley Center in New York on Tuesday.

“I love Jennifer Coolidge and Luke Wilson and Selma Blair and so there’s so many great characters that people love,” Reese continued, naming Elle’s onscreen pal Paulette, her boyfriend, Emmett, and on/off friend Vivian, respectively.

She added: “If we end up doing it, hopefully they end up all being there.”

Earlier this year, Reese revealed during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she was still working on the project.

“We’re definitely talking about it…,” the 43-year-old said. “I mean it’s sort of about women being underestimated and I think it’s a good idea… Things have changed, but not that much has changed! I love playing that character. She’s so amazing.”

MGM executives previously indicated they are looking to release the third instalment in May 2020.

Reese Witherspoon cried for three days after losing dream role

Reese Witherspoon was once so upset after losing out on a role, she cried “ugly tears” for three days.

The 43-year-old shared the emotional story in a heartfelt Instagram post on Tuesday, telling her millions of followers that despite all the success she’s had, there are still roles she wishes she could have played.

“When I first started as an actor, I went on an audition for a part that I wanted more than ANYTHING,” she wrote. “This was an incredible movie with a huge male movie star as the lead. I had three callbacks, then a screen test and one day my agent called and said, ‘You didn’t get the part, the lead actor liked working with the other actress more.’

“Oh boy, did I cry. Ugly tears. For 3 whole days.”

The Legally Blonde star also revealed casting agents frequently shot her down for parts she was desperate to get.

“Over the years, I lost as many parts as I got,” the actress added. “I was always considered TOO something. Too short. Too feisty. Too energetic. I once got told I seemed too smart to play a young female character. I’m not gonna lie, sometimes all the rejection would hurt my feelings, I would take it personally. I definitely cried in the shower a lot in my twenties.”

But the Oscar winner’s low points have made her tougher and stronger.

“What I didn’t know then was: rejection teaches you perseverance and how to get tough,” she shared. “And you also learn… not every path is right for you.”

Reese Witherspoon’s daughter wishes mum had kept pink Legally Blonde look

Reese Witherspoon’s daughter wishes her mum had saved one of her key Legally Blonde looks for her.

Ava Phillippe, who is Reese’s daughter from her marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe, became a student at the University of California, Berkeley last year, and now she has teamed up with Amazon bosses to rave about life at college as part of the company’s Off to College campaign.

As part of the collaboration, Ava sat down with editors at U.S. InStyle to discuss her decorating preferences as well as the clothing she gravitates towards as a co-ed.

Showing off her room in a filmed segment, the influencer says, “I’m absolutely obsessed with my cotton Calvin Klein duvet from Amazon’s Off to College storefront. It’s like laying on your favourite T-shirt while studying!”

Of course, the discussion over higher education led to talk of one her mum’s most famous film roles, in 2001’s Legally Blonde, in which she played a Harvard Law student Elle Woods. A fan of the character’s eye-catching style, Ava wishes Reese still had Elle’s signature pink ensemble.

“There is a pink halter dress my mom wore on a date in Legally Blonde that I think is so fun and cute,” the 19-year-old reveals. “All the outfits from that movie are iconic, but this particular dress is something I could see myself wearing.”

But the outfit doesn’t necessarily fit into the look’s Ava prefers.

“Comfortable and casual. I walk around campus a lot, so it’s become really important for me to make sure that, above all else, my outfit is functional and comfortable – something I wouldn’t mind wearing or walking all day,” she notes.

She also looks to her roomate for inspiration, revealing the two respect one another’s style preferences.

Reese Witherspoon regrets wearing brown lip liner with a light-coloured lipstick in the 1990s.

The Legally Blonde actress, who made her debut in 1991 film The Man in the Moon, can pull off just about any fashion or beauty trend, though tends to stick with a classic look.

However, Reese experimented with the brown lipliner fad made popular by stars like Gwen Stefani and Drew Barrymore at the height of the ’90s, though she now wishes she didn’t follow the crowd.

“I think in the ’90s when we did the thing where you had brown lip liner that was darker than my lipstick – that was an odd beauty moment. For some reason, I just took that one a long way,” she told Refinery29. “We also plucked our eyebrows really severely. I really wish I hadn’t plucked my eyebrows, but thank God they grew back.”

Reese continues to have a big fan of beauty and skincare products, though is now more focused on caring for her complexion.

And while the Elizabeth Arden ambassador genuinely uses the brand’s Retinol Ceramide Capsules, she isn’t afraid to try out drugstore products too.

“(I like to use the cleanser) Cetaphil. I use the face wash, and I travel with it. I like the Revlon eyelash curler; it’s as good as any eyelash curler I’ve ever used. I love drugstore make-up, too. I remember going as a little girl to the drugstore down the street from my grandmother’s house, and I’d spend hours looking at nail polish and lipstick and blush,” the 43-year-old recalled.

Recently, Reese also shared that she looks to her 19-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe for make-up tips as the teenager has become quite the cosmetics whizz, especially when it comes to the application of eyeliner and highlighter.

“If I have to do my make-up for a dinner or something, I’ll be like, ‘Ava, can you fix my eyeshadow? I can’t remember what goes in the crease,’ because she has this intense knowledge about how to shade. It’s crazy,” she smiled.
