Reese Witherspoon discusses “Legally Blonde” and its impact on her life during an appearance on Friday’s “Graham Norton Show”.
Talking about fame, Witherspoon says: “I was in England making ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ when ‘Legally Blonde’ came out in America. When I went home my life had changed forever.”
Revealing she kept a few — very expensive — souvenirs from the 2001 flick, she continues, “I kept the whole wardrobe, including 77 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes. I had it written in my contract! I didn’t touch them until the 15th anniversary and then had a lot of fun trying them on with my daughter.”
Witherspoon is joined on the show by her “Morning Show” co-star and fellow executive producer Jennifer Aniston.
Aniston says of her role on the much-talked-about series, “My character has a lot of rage. I have meltdowns, which were really fun to do because as a rule I just don’t do that in my personal life.”
Witherspoon interjects, “I had meltdowns a lot, but mine were very close to the surface. I have three kids!”
When asked about exec-producing the series, Aniston adds, “We were very hands-on. It was very different to the last time I was on television. This was like a film schedule. It was such hard work, but so much fun.”
