Reese Witherspoon isn't brushing her mistakes under the rug, as she's revisited her 2013 arrest with honesty by describing it as an "embarrassing and dumb" moment for her.
The Legally Blonde star and her husband Jim Toth were pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence seven years ago. Footage of Witherspoon not co-operating with the police by resisting orders then went viral.
Witherspoon apologised in the weeks after the event but has now reflected on the moment again in Jameela Jamil's I Weigh podcast.
Jamil said the way the star has "shamed [her]self" at the time was "refreshing". “But, I did something really stupid,” Witherspoon retorted.
"It was so embarrassing and dumb. But, you know what — turns out I breathe air. I bleed the same way. I make dumb decisions. I make great decisions.
"I’m just a human being.”
Witherspoon plead no contest to the charge of obstruction of a person and was required to pay a fine of $313, while Toth plead guilty to a first offence for driving under the influence, E! reported at the time.
Meanwhile, Witherspoon's fashion line Draper James has recently found itself in a difficult situation due to a giveaway that went awry.
The label wanted to show appreciation for US teachers during the coronavirus pandemic by giving them a free dress, however, less than one percent of applicants received one.
The initial Instagram post did include the caveat "while supplies last", but had just 250 dresses while almost 1 million applied.
Draper James then attempted to explain it was a raffle instead of a giveaway. A spokesperson said they had "moved too quickly" and didn't anticipate the demand.
