HAMMER: Reese Witherspoon may have a real-life “Election” in her future. In the February issue of “W” magazine, Reese says she would consider running for office someday. She says she doesn`t think there are enough strong female figures in politics. And she wishes that there was someone who represented more of her ideas.
Reese [who, remember, played Elle Woods in not one but two Legally Blonde movies] also talks about what she calls “something in the zeitgeist” right now about women in Hollywood portraying themselves as stupid. She says whether it`s actresses or singers playing dumb, it doesn`t do service to the women`s movement, and that, quote, “It irritates me that the sort of fad that `stupidity is cute` might really be doing some serious damage. It`s the cheap answer, and let`s hope that their moment fades.”

She wouldn’t be the first pol in her family. She’s a descendent of John.
