Reese Witherspoon Sees The Funny Side Of Arrest Ordeal As Pal Chelsea Handler Teases Her

Reese Witherspoon laughed off a roasting from Chelsea Handler regarding her recent arrest while picking up an award at the ELLE 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Awards.

The talk show host is not particularly known for biting her tongue about uncomfortable subjects regarding her fellow celebrities, but her Legally Blonde actress pal didn't seem to mind as she chuckled at a joke Handler made about her troubles with the law. 'Personally, as a true friend, my favourite project of hers was an overlooked short film that she made earlier this year', she began at the awards ceremony on Monday (October 21st 2013). 'She plays a very inebriated housewife defending her inebriated husband.'

The quip referred to an incident in April when she and her husband Jim Toth were pulled over in Atlanta because the latter appeared to the cops to be over the legal alcohol limit. The Oscar winning actress, rather than wait in the car as she was told, got out and started hurling abuse at the police officer which ended up with her being arrested for disorderly conduct.

Reese and Jim both failed to hide their sheepish giggles - in fact, Reese seemed glad there was someone there to make light of it, admitting to E! News, 'Any party gets that much better when Chelsea Handler shows up.'
