Cast of Legally Blonde: Where Are They Now?


It has been 14 years since Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) brushed off her LA lifestyle to attend Harvard Law School in hopes of getting back her hunky, yet skeezy, boyfriend Warren (Matthew Davis). She taught every girl that you can be stylish, smart, and have great hair while kicking courtroom butt. Since then, there has been a sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde, a musical, and a spinoff, Legally Blondes. So where is the cast that started the Elle Woods craze? Fame10 has the latest on what theses Hollywood stars have been doing since Elle won her first case through her knowledge of proper hair maintenance.

Elle’s former boyfriend stayed in the acting biz after filming Legally Blonde (since he didn’t make it as a lawyer after graduating from Harvard) and was recently Alaric Saltzman in The Vampire Diaries. He also played Jeff Sefton in the series Cult. It looks like the 37-year-old actor still hasn’t found a replacement for Elle as he is currently unmarried.
