Actress Reese Witherspoon is worth every penny of the $15 million (GBP9.3 million) she gets for each movie, according to her Legally Blonde co-star Jennifer Coolidge.

Statuesque actress Coolidge, who most recently worked with Witherspoon on LEGALLY BLONDE 2: RED WHITE + BLONDE, admits she's thoroughly impressed with the Hollywood beauty's workmanship.

She says, "There are people that handle making money well and people who don't, and Reese happens to be one of those people who handles everything well.

"I don't know how she does it all, but she's totally unfazed by her new light. No matter how much pressure she's under, I've never seen her have a scary moment as you see so many people experience in this town.

"She's a very levelheaded person. She's one of the actresses that deserves every penny she gets. It I were a studio, I'd give her $15 million."
