Legally Blonde Warner Huntington actor Matthew Davis looks completely different with bushy beard 21 years after hit film | The Sun

LEGALLY Blonde star Matthew Davis looks totally different from his slippery wannabe lawyer character Warner Huntington 21 years on from the film's release.

Matt played Elle Woods' (Reese Witherspoon) love interest Warner Huntington III in the cult comedy drama. Stuck up and shallow, he ditched Elle for Selma Blair's character Vivian Kensington, believing the ditzy blonde isn't good enough for his serious Harvard Law School ambitions.

Since then, Matt has become best known for playing Alaric Saltzman in The Vampire Diaries (2009-2017) and its spin-off Legacies.

In the latter Matthew sports a big bushy beard, a completely different look to the clean-shaven Warner.

Matt became a father for the second time in January to Dorothy, two years after welcoming his first daughter, Ripley.

Following the birth of his firstborn, Matt wrote on Twitter: "Ripley Nightingale Davis. Born March 31st 9:51pm. 7lbs, Blond hair Blue eyes Moms beautiful face. Thank you everyone for all your love and support."

During a virtual reunion with the Legally Blonde cast, Matt revealed his role in the film caused some grief.

"For years and years people would say ‘You’re that a**hole from Legally Blonde!’” he said.

Co-star Reese defended him, saying: “I’m here to tell people Matthew Davis is the nicest person. He was just playing a character."
