Matthew Fox: I Was Terribly Embarrassed By My DUI

Matthew Fox flashes a smile during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday (October 17).

The 46-year-old actor chatted with Ellen about his turbulent year that included false allegations of hitting a woman and a DUI.

“I was not happy about the DUI at all. I was terribly embarrassed by that. And take full responsibility for it. I really own that and have done every single thing the state of Oregon requires for a first time DUI offender. I have learned a ton,” Matthew shared. “I did four weeks of alcohol informational training. And just learned an enormous amount. One of the statistics that I learned is that 50% of people that get one DUI will get another. I found that pretty astounding after what I’ve been through. I will absolutely not be in the statistic. There is just no way.”
