Matt played Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) Warner Huntington III in the comedy-drama Kul. Tight and superficial, he dropped Elle for Selma Blair`s character, Vivian Kensington, because he believed the dirty blonde wasn`t good enough for his serious ambitions at Harvard Law School. He backed Donald Trump`s running mate, Mike Pence, which was not well received by some Legacies fans who started a petition to replace him. She also founded a media company, Hello Sunshine, which is now valued at $200 million. In the latter, Matthew wears a large bushy beard, a completely different look than the clean-shaven Warner. “I absolutely loved and loved Selma,” Davis news.com.au said in September 2017. His character has always been loved by The Vampire Diaries fandom, but he was in hot water with some fans and his former co-star Paul Wesley when they got into a Twitter feud over the 2020 vice presidential debate, according to Us Weekly. The tweets have since been deleted, and it appears Davis has abandoned that Twitter account, as the Twitter profile is now private and contains someone else`s picture as a profile picture. Bush attended Yale University before attending Harvard Business School. As a student, he had at least one thing in common with Woods.
In Legally Blonde, she is president of the Delta Nu Sisterhood. During his time at Yale, Bush served as president of his fraternity. Matthew Davis, also known as Matt Davis, is an American actor. He is best known for his roles as Warner Huntington III in Legally Blonde, Adam Hillman in the ABC comedy What About Brian from 2006 to 2007 and Alaric Saltzman in the fantasy drama The CW The Vampire Diaries from 2009 to 2017, as well as the spin-off series Legacies from 2018 to 2022. He starred in CW Cult`s short-lived mystery horror drama as Jeff Sefton and had a recurring role in the CBS crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as Sean Yeager. LEGAL Blonde star Matthew Davis is completely different from his lawyer Warner Huntington 21 years after the film`s release. Meanwhile, Reese`s place in the Hollywood elite was cemented by her role as Elle in Legally Blonde. After splitting from Cruel Intent actor Ryan Phillippe, the father of her first two children, Witherspoon married agent Jim Toth in 2011 and they had a son a year later. Shocked and heartbroken, Woods began the date, thinking that her beloved boyfriend would propose to her. After wallowing in chocolate and television, Woods decided to go to Harvard Law School to get her boyfriend back.
In addition to his busy life as an actor, Davis took on the role of “father” and welcomed his first child in March 2020 with his wife, Kylie Casciano, a baby girl named Ripley Nightingale Davis, according to People. While it`s nearly impossible for Davis to distance himself from Warner, nostalgia is certainly not the only thing he has for him these days. Warner relied on his family`s connections to succeed, but Davis seems to be on his own. Davis married actress Kiley Casciano on December 23, 2018, and their first child, a girl, was born in 2020.     Their second daughter was born on January 24, 2022. According to Mother-Daughter Movies: 101 Films to See Together, a book by Rosemary Rogers, Davis was inspired by former President George W. Bush. The actor read a biography of the 43rd US president before taking on the role of Woods` friend. After Legal Blonde, Matthew Davis starred in the film Blue Crush in 2002. Among other films and several television shows, Davis landed a pivotal role in The Vampire Diaries in 2009 as Alaric Saltzman.
He also played the same character in the Vampire Diaries spin-off series The Originals and Legacies. Davis immediately applauded: “Paul loves to vote for criminals and losers, just like in 2016. Your opinion on this subject carries little weight for me. Next. Wesley then tweeted a statement correcting Davis and telling his fans that he didn`t vote for Trump in 2016 (via his girlfriend). Davis later apologized for the inaccurate and insensitive comment with a follow-up tweet: “I apologize for getting sharp last night. It`s been so combative here these days and it makes me nervous. I`m really sorry if I upset someone by being a hole A last night” (via Us Weekly). That apology, as well as most of the couple`s exchanges about the debate, has since been erased, but fans can rejoice, Davis and Wesley appeared to suppress their feud over the course of the evening, and Matt Davis has pulled out of Twitter for now.
And more recently, she received more awards for the HBO series she produced and starred in, Big Little Lies (2017-2019), and her most recent show, Little Fires Everywhere (2020), became the most-watched drama on Hulu in the streaming platform`s history. “I`m thrilled and I don`t know anything,” Davis Entertainment Weekly said at Comic-Con 2018. Legal Blonde 3 is in the works — it`s slated for release in May 2022 — and Davis is about to reprise his role as Huntington. He told Entertainment Weekly in 2018 that he “would like to see where the writers think Warner is at this point.” Legally, blonde fans couldn`t help but sympathize with Elle Woods when Warner Huntington III dropped her instead of asking for her. Many people can understand the despair that Reese Witherspoon`s character felt after the breakup, when she threw a box of chocolates on her TV screen and shouted the word “liar” in response to the soap opera she saw. However, the situation had a positive side. She followed Warner to Harvard Law School, where she excelled on her own and realized she didn`t need Warner to be happy. This film was an important turning point in Witherspoon`s career.
Legal Blonde immediately became a classic, so much so that some fans shared his disdain for Matthew Davis, who played Warner in the film. But according to Jessica Cauf, who played Elle`s other girlfriend, Blair wasn`t the only person Davis had a crush on. Woods, a student at a fictional California university, thinks her boyfriend will propose to her. But instead, Huntington breaks up with her for Selma Blair`s Vivian Kensington, saying he must “marry a Jackie, not Marilyn”. To the surprise of her friends, family and college counselor, the Ivy League school accepted her. She appeared in all her pink dresses with fluffy pens, ready to win back Huntington`s back. As the film progressed, she realized that it wasn`t the type for her. “She said, `That`s so cute! OK, let`s work on the stage,” he said.
“Since I was 15 and watching A Far Off Place, I`ve had the most crush on Reese,” Davis told Movieline shortly after the release of Legally Blonde in 2001. However, it is the role of Alaric Saltzman from The Vampire Diaries for which Davis is best known. In fact, Matthew Davis has been an integral part of the CW network for over a decade. Not only did he star in The Vampire Diaries and its two spin-offs, The Originals and Legacies, but he also anchored the network`s short-lived horror drama, Cult, starting in 2013. As for Hungtington, he came from a wealthy family and had political ambitions. And as Kensington Woods says, he couldn`t go to Harvard Law School alone. His father had to make a phone call. Davis starred in the fantasy drama The CW The Vampire Diaries, playing Alaric Saltzman since 2009 and starred in CW Cult`s short-lived mystery horror drama as Jeff Sefton the same year. Davis had a recurring role in the CBS crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation from 2013 to 2014 in season 14, as CSI Sean Yeager. He appeared in the sixth episode titled “Passing Pawns,” the eighth episode titled “Helpless,” and the 13th episode titled “Boston Brakes.” He then returned to the hit show The CW The Vampire Diaries as Alaric Saltzman. Davis is currently starring in The CW Legacies, a spin-off of The Originals, where he reprises his role as Alaric Saltzman.
