Reese Witherspoon Issues Apology After Disorderly Conduct Arrest

Reese Witherspoon has issued a formal apology after being arrested for disorderly conduct on Friday (April 19) in Atlanta, Ga.

The 37-year-old actress’ statement, which also speaks to her husband Jim Toth‘s DUI charge, was provided to JustJared.com by her reps.

“Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now,” Reese said. “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 is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”

..more like her personal assistant issues an apology

# 2

Sorry for her husband; I don’t care about her husband. I care about the people he could have hurt or killed by his driving drunk. Her apology is shallow.

# 3

She and hubby should stay off the roads when they drink.

# 4

Sounds legit

# 5

Strange that the apology only comes out after the incident was made public.

# 6

You would think a woman with 3 children who was 37 would know better than this! I’ve always looked up to Reese this is so disappointing.

Love my job, since I’ve been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I’m making it online.(Click Home information)

She’s a tough cookie to have made it in HW (and with an ex who dates girls closer to their daughter’s age)…no one should be surprised that she has an attitude.

At least she apologized which is more than you can say for most other celebrities who get arrested and make excuses. I hope she learned from this and i hope she realizes that just because she’s a celebrity it doesn’t mean she’s above the law. Still really disappointed and will never look at her the same.

She is only apologizing because Variety found out about it. If she was really sorry she would have released this Saturday before she went to the premiere.

@Kelly: I totally agree. I have always thought she had a good head on her shoulders, but the “Do you know my name?!” statement rubbed me the wrong way. Doesn’t matter WHO you are…your husband was way over the legal limit and driving. There’s no excuse for that.
How would she feel if some other drunk was driving and hit their car with her children in it?

wow, surprised to hear she’s not as perfect as she comes across!

@Louise: I agree. She only cares for her husband, and she’s only apologizing because she cares about her career.

There is absolute no excuse for what she and her husband did. That being said at least she apologized unlike other celebs (Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, to name a few). I do believe that she is truly sorry, she’s not perfect, she’s a human being. She seems to be fairly humble and she’s a mother, and I think that is embarrassing enough for her children to know that she went and did something like that. I wouldn’t say give her break because what she and her husband did could have harmed them as well as others, but I will say I believe she is sincere.

Would her publicist have issued an apology statement, if the media didn’t know about it? Hmm…

She has to make an apology to save face. She is actually a lot like G. Paltrow in that a lot of people can’t stand her. They were waiting for her to f*ck so people can see her for what she really is. Mission accomplished.

Geeze people are so critical. It was a mistake and an accident. Thank god no one was hurt. And she was drunk and in result obnoxious. They had a night out as a married couple without the kids. Give them a break. They were arrested and went to jail and will be going to court. They will be penalized for their actions.

She made a mistake, she’s only human. I have no issues with that, unless it was a reoccurring issue, which is not. What I do have an issue with is that she played the celebrity card, “Do You Know Who I am?” Just because you’re a celebrity, rich, and have high social status doesn’t mean you’re above the law! There’s consequences for bad behavior. It made her look very arrogant, condescending, and pretentious!

OMG people make mistakes!! Obviously it was irresponsible, but stop acting like your angels. were all human and have made mistakes too

can people stop saying “at least she apologized”
first: her P.R people would have issued the statement.
second: she only gives a sh*t because ppl found out

AND ALSO stop complaining about her apology statement. At least she released one unlike every other celeb who doesnt and you all would be complaining if she didnt so stfu

@elle: No.. drink driving is NOT A MISTAKE.. its disgusting.. people like you who make it forgivable are the lowest form of scum.. do you know how many children have died because of some a hole who was drunk on the road?
mistakes are: sorry, i forgot an appointment not this sh8t
gross
go away until you know right from wrong!!

That was nice and probably smart for her career.
But, I have seen too many situations where cops abuse the power their jobs give them and antagonize people and situations until they elevate out of control. She just wants this to go away, so she is being conciliatory.

Too late really for an apology your actions speak louder then words….
