Reese Witherspoon cancels TV appearances post arrest

Hopefully you didn’t already set your DVR for Reese Witherspoon’s appearances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “Good Morning America” this week.

The actress has canceled her rounds on the talk-show circuit in the wake of her Friday arrest, according to The Washington Post. (As CNN previously reported, Witherspoon was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly interfering with the arrest of her husband on a drunken driving charge in Atlanta, Georgia.)

Witherspoon, who is in Atlanta filming “The Good Lie,” was set to promote Jeff Nichols’ “Mud,” which she stars in alongside Matthew McConaughey.

The Academy Award-winner's publicist said she also canceled plans to do interviews in New York to promote the film on Monday. And while she did walk the red carpet at the movie's New York premiere on Sunday night, she declined to talk to the media.

Witherspoon recently apologized for her behavior in a statement: “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.”

    There is some great advice here and all of the poses are easily achievable without looking forced or contrived. I particularly like pose 7 which can make a very dramatic bridal portrait shot in the right location and light. I’ll check out the app for more ideas.

    She looks hot like Kat Bjelland from Babes in Toyland did in the early 90's.

    I like the darker look, and getting arresting just gets her street cred in the entertainment industry. Next she can go to rehab, write a book and do a book tour, yada yada. I bet 2,000 people got arrested that night for the same thing. Wait till all the new "Stoned Drivers" start get arrested. just a matter of time...

    She needs to change her hair back to blonde. With the dark hair it makes her look evil.. She also needs to curve her filthy mouth and basically keep it shut! Whether she one too many doesn't matter. That wasn't what she tried to do to this officer! She tried to tell him....I'm a very important person and you are just a poor lil' policeman trying to act big. It appears she has two personalities! Sweet lil' Reese is one and the other is...keep out of my way or I'll bury you! Maybe that is what she does in Hollywood, but in Atlanta, she needs to understand she is just another person getting arrested for being a total a.r.s.e.hole!!

    If I ever get pulled over for drunk driving, I was offer to fellate the arresting officer to persuade him to drop the charges. Either that or I would feign explosive diarrhea; no, wait...that's how I always get out of speeding tickets.

    What they failed to note is Reese asking the cop, "do you know my name"? and telling him he's going to famous all the over the world, or something to that effect. Sure, most of us do stupid things when we're drink. We lose our rational thinking, we feel invincible, we release your inhabitions, which also means your sub-conscience comes out. So, it seems that, deep down inside, Reese really thinks she's, "all that", and her celebrity status warrants some consideration when breaking the law.

    celebrities do this kind of thing when they have new projects going on so they get attention.
    negative attention is still attention.

      Wow. 2 fails.

      1) You fail because you don't have the brains to come up with a joke of your own, so you parrot others.
      2) You fail because you choose idiots, with idiotic jokes, to parrot.

      For your information,

      * I started the entire fecal matter jokes like 6 months ago on here along wioth Alvarez and others.
      * I really could give two fecal balls what you consider to be original or funny as you are either:
      a) a total nark who hates anyone who doesn't think the way you do
      b) some extremely religious person with no grip on reality.

      And another thing – PLOP! Flusssshhhhh

    I feel bad for the director of this movie. The trailer looks amazing, but it's an indie flick and sure could use some big-time promotion from it's big time stars. Bummer.

    Well, her warning for the cop that he'll be all over the news did come true. She does have power in Hollywood and that explains her megalomania. However, she had a rude awakening that there are still parts in this country where her shiny oscar doesn't mean a thing to the law.

    Not sure how she gets any of the roles she gets, other than she must have a really good agent. Because she couldn't act her way out of a paper bag.

      Not a good time for her to be promoting anything. Don't think her fans are quite ready to forgive her childish behavior. Seems she is more of a spoiled brat than anyone thought.

      You have jail cell toilets.

      Jail cell toilets are made of stainless steel and are very cold to sit on, especially in the winter. Now that's what I call cruel and unusual punishment!
