Being “Blonde” brings in big bucks!
RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Reese Witherspoon has finalized negotiations to reprise her role as lovable diva Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 3 – for a whopping $12 million!
“Reese has put her all into making this happen because she knows it’s what the fans want,” an insider told Radar. “So it’s a huge relief to her that this has finally been given the go-ahead.”
It’s also a huge relief to her bank account! Combined with the $1.1 million per episode she is earning for her new Apple show, Witherspoon is flourishing financially.
“A big sticking point was Reese’s salary, and now she’s getting a major payday,” the source added.
Maybe Witherspoon finally has enough money to help her 70-year-old mom, Betty Reese, whom Radar revealed is still working, on her feet all day, as a hostess at a local restaurant in Franklin, Tennessee.
But making all that money won’t be easy for the super-stretched superstar.
“This will be hectic as hell for her, but she’s back at the very top as one of the most in-demand stars around,” the source confessed. “So Reese knows she can name the highest possible price!”
