4A+ For Reese Witherspoon And Her Publicist: Reese Releases Humble Statement About Arrest

Reese Witherspoon, America’s Sweetheart or whatever, was arrested with her husband for drunk driving and disorderly conduct. And unlike Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan, Ms. Witherspoon knows how to give good statement. Her publicist is very smart. Her statement, via TMZ:

Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I am very sorry for my behavior.

By “the things I said” she was referring to the classic “do you know who I am/what my name is” line.

I’m not saying let’s throw her a parade for saying exactly what someone should after being arrested for drunk driving, but I’m saying it’s refreshing to see a celebrity own up to their mistakes and take full blame. Unlike Lindsay “It Was Totally My Assistant’s Fault, Swearsies” Lohan.

Their separate hearings are scheduled for May 22 and 23 in Atlanta. Sorry for the quality of that mugshot, it’s the best one that’s out there right now that isn’t the side by side one with her husband.

Here’s some photos of Witherspoon and Mr. Witherspoon leaving their NYC hotel yesterday (August 21), right as the DUI news was about to burst. She looks smug as hell, but take a photo at the right time and anyone can look like anything.

    Geez….. Reese, Chewbacca, and wonky titted Tara. You do know Richie Havens died today, right?

    she looks smug as hell because she IS smug as hell. Someone at bikini bootcamp should have told her that liquor has tons of calories. Now we know why she still has that gut, oh, I mean baby weight. Still love her as an actress, because that’s all she owes movie-goers. But she sure as hell can leave that “Let them eat cake” crap at home. I wish she would get the same sentence that I would have gotten if I had gotten rough with the cops.

    I don’t understand why anyone would drink and drive but people that are wealthy can have a driver but they still choose to drink and drive don’t get it at all !
