"I Told Him I Was Pregnant!" Reese Witherspoon Embarrassed Over DUI Incident

Reese Witherspoon’s clean-cut reputation took a blow recently when she was arrested for DUI in Atlanta, but in her first interview with the incident – which also saw her husband taken in – she did her best get her image back on track by admitting full responsibility for her action.

Talking to Good Morning America, Witherspoon commented "It's one of those nights. We went out to dinner in Atlanta, had one too many glasses of wine. We thought we were fine to drive and we absolutely were not. And it's just completely unacceptable. And we are so sorry and embarrassed. And we know better." However she wasn’t let off the hook easily; it was reported she’d asked the cop taking them down if he knew who she was, but when that was put to her in the interview she commented “I have no idea what I was saying that night. I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I said all kinds of crazy things. I told him I was pregnant. I'm not pregnant! I said crazy things … I was so disrespectful to him. I have police officers in my family. I work with police officers every day. I know better."

Witherspoon also said that she’d called up the police since to personally apologize, while also admitted it was embarrassing telling her children about the incident. Sounds like a lesson definitely learnt then. "There were so many lessons learned. Absolutely” she said. “When a police officer tells you to stay in the car, you stay in the car. I think I've played a lawyer so many times in movies, I think I am a lawyer — and clearly I'm not a lawyer. So, I learned a lot." Indeed Rees, real life is not like a movie.
