Remember when America's Sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon, was arrested for a DUI in April 2013 and the world went into meltdown? Remember when she uttered the words “Do you know my name?” and the world cringed? Well, it turns out the stunning 38-year-old actress was cringing along with us.
Speaking about the incident at a press conference for her new movie Wild at the BFI London Film Festival yesterday, the Oscar winner said: “I made a mistake. We all make mistakes. The best you can do is say sorry, learn from it and move on. I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said.”
This isn't the first time Reese has commented on the event, but it seems like she may be dogged with questions about it every time she intends to promote a film for the forseeable future and Reese seems to know exactly why this may be the case. Analysing the interest in the story, she said: “I think it was a moment where people realised that I wasn't exactly what they thought I was. I guess maybe we all like to define people by the way the media presents them, and I think I have showed that I have a complexity that people didn't know about.”
We don't know how much more Reese can say about the incident. Maybe it's time to move on.
