Christina Applegate says she wishes she hadn't passed on Legally Blonde.

The 43-year-old actress revealed as much in an interview with Entertainment Tonight this week. Applegate had the chance to pursue the role of Elle Woods, but was reluctant to play a character similar to her Kelly Bundy on Married with Children.

"The script came along by way, and it was right after I just finished Married, and it was a blonde who was in that first script dimwitted but ends up going to Harvard," the star recalled. "I got scared. I got scared of repeating myself. What a stupid move that was, right?"

"Reese [Witherspoon] deserved [the part], and she did a much better job than I ever could," she lauded. The movie catapulted Witherspoon to greater fame and was a box office and critical success, earning over $141 million in theaters.
