Reese Witherspoon appeared on the red carpet at Mud premiere in NYC just 48 hours after her arrest for disorderly conduct in Atlanta, Georgia, over the weekend.
Reese Witherspoon, 37, known for her squeaky clean image, released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior to police that began when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was arrested early Friday for DUI.
“Do you know my name?” Reese Witherspoon is quoted as saying in a state trooper’s report.
The actress also said: “You’re about to find out who I am’ and ‘You’re about to be on national news,” according to the report.
Reese Witherspoon’s statement said: “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.
“The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”
Reese Witherspoon said she can’t comment further “out of respect” for the pending case, and her publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, offered no other details.
The Oscar-winning actress posed for cameras on the red carpet at the NYC premiere of her film Mud, but did not stop to talk to reporters.
Reese Witherspoon smiled for the cameras as she would under any normal circumstance, coyly perking up the sides of her mouth as she gave seductive glances to anyone she encountered.
She slimmed up her figure in a loose-fitting black mini dress that drew attention to her toned and trim legs.
Reese Witherspoon also drew attention to her new honey brown hair, which she dyed recently as she is working on The Good Lie in Atlanta, Georgia.
