Kim Kardashian’s Halloween portrayal of Elle Woods’ college entry video in Legally Blonde has gone viral, and now Elle Woods herself, Reese Witherspoon, has offered her perspective.
Kardashian’s video kept to Elle Woods’ script, recreating scenes like the hot tub, the toilet paper debate and what just happened on “Days Of Our Lives.”
Witherspoon retweeted Kardashian’s video and wrote “Elle Woods forever!” with a few swirly hearts thrown in for good measure.
That’s so totally what the real Elle Woods would have said.
Elle Woods forever! 💞💞💞 https://t.co/vXtrgHuzKr

Not everyone was happy with Kardashian’s performance, though her efforts to stay true to the film were noted.
“Now we know why you’re the actress and Kim isn’t. Impression is pretty lame but 5 stars for effort. But having said that ‘there’s only one Elle Woods’ no one can replicate you,” said one fan.
“Oh no Reese. Love you but she is [thumbs down] you can tell she had work done on her face but u are a natural beauty & not a fake person overall like her!” said another
Here was another meh response:
“It’s not Reese Witherspoon good, and I’m pretty sure she was using a cue card in the swimming pool scene ….. but not bad.”
Witherspoon has recently spoken about a possible Legally Blonde 3, though plans are very early right now.
“It’s just a development project right now, so we’ll see,” she said, according to ET.
So maybe Kardashian can be a stand-in for Witherspoon on set?
