Legally Blonde 2 star Reese Witherspoon has paid tribute to late screen idol Katharine Hepburn.

The pregnant beauty took the time to remember the AFRICAN QUEEN star - who died on Sunday (29JUN03) - to reporters at the premiere of sequel to her smash hit romantic comedy.

She said, "She was such a classy actress, and I think everyone in Hollywood feels the loss."

However, other stars of the new movie were in a more jovial mood.

Co-star Jennifer Coolidge made fun of Demi Moore's recent red carpet appearance with toyboy ASHTON KUTCHER saying, "I'm following Demi's lead - I'm dating the guy from Malcolm In The Middle."
