Back in 2007, I blogged about Reese Witherspoon, commending her for managing to keep it together and stay out of the “Girls Gone Wild” club of celebrities, who at the time, included Britney, Lindsey, Paris and Nicole.
But over the weekend, it seems Witherspoon got bent out of shape when police made her husband “Walk the Line” after he was pulled over and charged with DUI. She was arrested for disorderly conduct.
I think everyone would have probably looked over this incident with this particular “America’s sweetheart,” if she hadn’t pulled the, “Do you know my name? . . . You’re about to find out” card. That’s a hard line for any middle-class American to swallow.
And I was just saying this week how it’s funny that every time someone has a movie to promote, they seem to find themselves in a predicament that makes national news – an arrest, an accident, a divorce, a stint in rehab.
I’m not sure that’s the case this time, but Witherspoon’s latest movie “Mud” with Matthew McConaughey opens to wide audiences this month.
Should this detour you from seeing “Mud?”
Nope. Not, in my opinion. Despite this bug on Witherspoon’s otherwise meticulously clean windshield, she’s a great actress, and I liked the film. We’re told some scenes were shot in Mississippi.
Check out my recent commentary on “Mud” written before I saw it at the Crossroads Film Festival in Jackson before its wide release.
