The actress was delighted with her haul of souvenirs from the 2001 comedy, including dozens of pairs of shoes but she kept them in storage for more than a decade before trying them on with her daughter.

Asked if she kept anything from playing Elle Woods in the movie she revealed she kept the whole wardrobe, including 77 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes.

While Reese was already established as an actress before Legally Blonde, she admitted the movie had a huge impact on her life and career. She told talk show host Graham Norton she was in England making shooting for The Importance of Being Earnest when Legally Blonde came out in the U.S. and she went home and her life had changed forever.
