‘I regret not doing Legally Blonde’
American actor Christina Applegate has said that turning down the lead role in the film, Legally Blonde (2001), is one of her biggest regrets. The 43-year-old star was finishing up her stint as ditzy Kelly Bundy on US sitcom Married... With Children when she was offered the role. However, Applegate was tired of being typecast as “a dumb blonde”, so she rejected the role, which eventually went to actor Reese Witherspoon and turned her into a household name, reported New York Daily News. “I kept getting scripts for dumb blondes and here’s one of my biggest regrets: one of those was Legally Blonde,” she said.
