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.”
