Reese Witherspoon Was Channeling Elle Woods When She Confronted That Atlanta Cop

“When a police officer tells you to stay in the car, you stay in the car. I think I’ve played a lawyer so many times in movies, I think I am a lawyer – and clearly I’m not a lawyer. So, I learned a lot.”

–Reese Witherspoon finally broke her silence about her arrest for disorderly conduct in a Thursday morning interview with “Good Morning America.” As we all know now, Reese went a little crazy on the Atlanta cop who was arresting her husband Jim Toth for DUI, launching into a “Do you know who I am?” rant. In the interview, Reese does seem genuinely apologetic and appropriately mortified about her behavior. “I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked,” she explains. “I said all kinds of crazy things. I told him I was pregnant. I’m not pregnant! I said crazy things.” Oh Reese, Elle Woods would have prepared much better arguments than that. [NY Daily News]
