Legally Blonde is one of those movies that we all look back on fondly! Starring Reese Witherspoon as the sorority girl turned law student, Elle Woods, the film is a staple of the early 2000s when it comes to movies geared towards young audiences! The Legally Blonde cast touched our hearts both then and now when we remember this film.

Having been released in 2001, it has been over 20 years since we were introduced to these iconic characters. With the news that Legally Blonde 3 could be in the works, we would love to see everyone back in their respective roles! However, since the film has continuously been pushed back, it’s difficult to guess when we might be able to see them.

With a possible script in the works, we already know we will likely see Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Coolidge back as Elle and Paulette, respectively. Plus, with scheduling and stars having success elsewhere, bringing back the same people would likely take some work. But it’s worth it to find out where everyone is today.

With it being so long since the first film was introduced, how old were the Legally Blonde cast at the time the film was released versus today? Here’s what we know!
