She’s already planning to host dinner parties for Jen just so she can meet potential suitors.” Given Reese Witherspoon’s own experience with a contentious divorce and dating after said divorce, she likely relates to Jennifer’s situation – and the source says as much, adding that because Reese settled down with agent Jim Toth after her divorce from a big movie star, she’s advising Jennifer to do the same.As it’s explained, “Reese advised Jen to go for a guy who works behind the scenes rather than another big star whose ego could get in the way of their relationship.” Unlike Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner did not have affairs with anybody during her marriage, even if her marriage was crumbling for the better part of the past three years.Legally Blonde is a 2001 American comedy film adapted from the novel of the same title by Amanda Brown.It was directed by Robert Luketic, scripted by Karen Mc Cullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, and stars Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber, and Jennifer Coolidge.The critics' consensus states that "though the material is predictable and formulaic, Reese Witherspoon's funny, nuanced performance makes this movie better than it would have been otherwise".Witherspoon received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, and the 2002 MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance.
The film was released on July 13, 2001, and received positive reviews from critics.
Sounds like a classic Hollywood screwball comedy setup.
Throw in attractive stars Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, flip a few SUVs, and what could go wrong?
Fashion merchandising student Elle Woods is taken to an expensive restaurant by her boyfriend, the governor's son, Warner Huntington III.
She expects Warner to propose, but he breaks up with her instead, reasoning that she is not serious enough for his political aspirations. After much effort, Elle scores a 179 on the Law School Admission Test.
A big part of that was that Jennifer truly was head over heels in love with Ben, and probably tried her best to make a reconciliation work – even if her (now ex) husband had too many issues to ever truly put in the past.
