Hollywood Dirt: Reese Witherspoon Apologizes for Disorderly Conduct Arrest, Zooey Deschanel Misindentified as Boston Marathon Bomber
CELEBRITIES BEHAVING BADLY – REESE WITHERSPOON ARRESTED/OFFERS APOLOGY: REESE WITHERSPOON is apologizing for her behavior days after she and her husband Jim Toth were arrested early Friday morning in Atlanta. He was popped for DUI, and she was cuffed for disorderly conduct during his arrest.
The police report states that as the arresting officers were dealing with Jim, Reese started getting impatient and agitated. Reese, quote, “began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer.” She was told to sit down and be quiet, but once her husband was placed under arrest, Reese got out of the car and would not get back in She stated she was a U.S. citizen, and was allowed to, quote, “stand on American ground.”
The officer tried to take her by the arms, but she resisted, playing the don’t-you-know-who-I-am card. “Do you know my name?” she asked the cop. When the cop replied he didn’t need to know her name, she shot back, quote, “You’re about to find out who I am . . . You are going to be on national news.” At that point, she was cuffed and arrested.
Reese and Jim were released at around 3:30 in the morning … and two days later, Reese attended the New York City premiere of her latest movie “Mud”. She posed for pictures for only a couple of minutes and didn’t talk to the media afterward.
Reese later released a statement apologizing for her actions: “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. The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”
ZOOEY DESCHANEL IDENTIFIED AS SUSPECT IN BOSTON MARATHON BOMBINGS – WAIT, WHAT?!: ZOOEY DESCHANEL got quite a surprise Friday when she was briefly — and mistakenly — identified as a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings on a Dallas Fox News station.
FOX 4/Dallas-Fort Worth aired the incorrect closed caption which read, “Marathon bombing, he is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.” The correct suspect was Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, who was apprehended later that day. The “New Girl” star commented on the mistake, tweeting, “Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”
JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT’S LOW CUT DRESS STUNS ELLEN DEGENERES: Whoa, Nelly! Did you see how revealing the dress JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT wore on Friday’s “Ellen” was?
It showed so much cleavage Ellen asked JLove if she was still sewing it when they called her out to the stage. Jennifer replied, rather sheepishly, “It’s a little wowsers, sorry about it.” No apology needed, Hugeboobs — er, I mean, Hewitt.
KIM KARDASHIAN KNEWS: In case you missed the news, our long, national nightmare came to an end Friday morning. After 536 days of fighting and 72 days of marriage, KIM KARDASHIAN and KRIS HUMPHRIES settled their divorce. Kris didn’t get the annulment or the $7 million he was hoping for. Instead he walks away with nothing. They’re not 100% divorced yet; the court still has to sign off on it, which should happen before June 19th.
Meanwhile … Speculation is growing that KANYE WEST and Kim are growing apart. Numerous reports in recent weeks have noted that they’ve been spending a lot of time apart while Kanye records in Paris. And while TMZ points out that Kanye has made at least three trips back to L.A. on a private jet in order to be with Kim for her doctor’s appointments at a cost of about $300,000, RadarOnline has done the math and figured out that they’ve been together only 26 of the past 111 days.
