Kaling, who’s producing and co-writing the highly anticipated third installment of Legally Blonde, recently told Extra that it is in the 22-year-old’s hands. “Listen, I believe I could do anything, and when that’s something she wished to do, just what a joy to possess her for the reason that,” Kaling said in a fresh interview.
Considering we’ll be picking right up with Elle Woods (Witherspoon) at 40 yrs . old, this may be the perfect chance of Ava to defend myself against the role of her mom’s on-screen daughter. I cant wait to see what folks will think about just how we wrote Elle Woods,” Kaling told Access Hollywood back January 2021. “We wrote Elle Woods at 40, just how Elle reaches 40 versus how she was at 21 has been really fun to assume.
Needless to say, should they do go that route, Ava wouldn’t normally function as first Witherspoon child that Mindy Kaling spent some time working with. The OG Legally Blonde star’s 18-year-old son Deacon Phillippe just made his acting debut in the 3rd season of Kaling’s Netflix series DO NOT HAVE I Ever. I had heard Reese say that Deacon was thinking about performing and he could be, Kaling told Extra.
He’s so funny, so talented. He’s obviously, like, very handsome, and we’d an enjoyable experience with him on set, and he could be like his mom where after he wrapped, he sent me a handwritten note, thanking me to be on set, she continued. “You can just tell Reese is his mom. You’re exactly like, ‘Oh, you’re an excellent person. I cannot imagine anyone saying a negative thing about you. You’re among those.'”
