***Breaking*** Reese Witherspoon and Agent Husband Arrested in DUI Incident

Oh this is good. CAA husband was drunk driving and Reese was hauled off for being mouthy!!

Reese Witherspoon and her husband, CAA agent James Toth, were arrested and briefly jailed early Friday morning in Atlanta, Ga., after he was pulled over under suspicion of driving while intoxicated, confirmed an official at the city’s Dept. of Corrections.

While Toth is facing a DUI charge after driving in the wrong lane, Witherspoon was also arrested on a disorderly conduct charge according to a police report obtained by Variety. She was handcuffed after disobeying repeated instruction from the arresting officer, with whom she verbally sparred, to stay inside the vehicle.

The couple was released on bond at approximately 3:30 a.m. ET on Friday.

CAA, which employs Toth and represents Witherspoon, and her publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, declined comment.

A court appearance is scheduled for Monday at 8 a.m. in Atlanta Municipal Court, but Witherspoon and Toth aren’t expected to appear, according to sources. Their attorney is expected to request that court date be postponed.

Witherspoon, 37, was with Toth, 42, in Atlanta shooting indie drama “The Good Lie.” Production on the film was not interrupted by the arrests, according to sources.

Witherspoon has been married to Toth since March 2011. The couple had a son, Tennessee James Toth, last September.

Toth was pulled over after midnight Friday driving a silver 2013 Ford Focus, which the officer witnessed weaving across a double line on Atlanta’s Peachtree St. Toth appeared disheveled and his breath smelled of alcohol, according to the police report, prompting the officer to administer a sobriety test.

As Toth walked in the Walgreens parking lot where the officer instructed him to pull over to, Witherspoon became increasingly agitated from the vehicle, which prompted the officer to warn her to stay in the car for the sake of her own safety.

“Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer,” according to the police report. “I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet.”

Once Toth was placed under arrest, Witherspoon exited the vehicle and was instructed to get back in the car. According to the report, she “stated that she was a ‘US citizen’ and that she was allowed to ‘stand on American ground.’”

The officer then detailed how she resisted as he grabbed her arms to arrest as Toth attempted to calm her down.

As the report details, “Mrs. Witherspoon asked, “Do you know my name?” I answered, “No, I don’t need to know your name.” I then added, “right now.” Mrs. Witherspoon stated, “You’re about to find out who I am.”

The report also specified, “Mrs. Witherspoon also stated, ‘You are going to be on national news.’ I advised Mrs. Witherspoon that was fine.”

Though he told an officer he had only a single drink hours earlier, Toth blew a .139 on a Breathalyzer test administered at the scene. He also is facing a second charge for failure to maintain a lane while driving.

Witherspoon’s alleged violation, which is specified on the police report as “disorderly conduct (obstruction),” is a local municipal ordinance.

Do police departments have regulations or restrictions on releasing mugshots? If she hadn't been such a bitch to the officer, she might have been able to bribe them not to release it. If Mr. Toth looked "disheveled," she must not look the prize.

From TMZ:

During Jim's arrest, Reese allegedly became ornery, demonstrating visual and verbal frustration over how long it was taking to arrest her husband. At one point, she got out of her car and the officer ordered her back inside. When she got out a second time, he arrested her for disorderly conduct, a municipal ordinance.

They were both taken to jail, booked, and released a short time later.

As for Toth's part of the arrest ... the officer in the report described him by saying his "eye lids were droopy" and his eyes were "blood shot and watery." The officer said he smelled a "strong odor" of alcohol coming from Toth.

The officer stated that Toth told him he only had one drink ... but when given a Breathalyzer test, Toth's blood alcohol level was .139.

This incident does make me wonder if they would have gotten away with it in L.A. CAA must have ties to the police and some kind of arrangements for their most important stars. It's surprising that we don't hear about more celebrity DUIs when you think of it. Jim Toth is a nobody in Atlanta.

She's said the right thing, so now the news outlets will just have to observe and see if she follows through.

[quote]"I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said," Witherspoon 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."

I believe her entirely as I've done such stupid shit myself. She knows she stepped over, and she'll do the right thing next. So move along.

I do hope that someone with such a huge perfectionist streak takes this cue for a little bit of relaxation (though not for DUI accusations) and understanding as her own family has been implicated in other stuff.

Sorry R24, I didn't check back on this thread for awhile, and then it took me awhile to decide if I wanted to tell you all about it. I signed a non-disclosure agreement, but decided there were too many other people who saw her asshole-ish behavior for anyone to narrow it down to me.

I'm a makeup artist and I was called in to do her make up for a film for a couple of weeks when the woman who had been doing it since the beginning of the film had to take some emergency time off because her girlfriend had cancer and was hospitalized after becoming very ill from the chemotherapy and they thought she might  not make it. The make up artist had known something like this might come up and she had left extensive detailed notes,hundreds of pictures and lots of video so if someone had to come in they'd be able to jump right in. I explained right away to Reese what was going on she actualy said she didn't understand why the make up artist couldn't come in and do her make up first then leave to go to the hospital, and come back throughout the day to touch up or re-do her makeup. Then she acted like I didn't know how she was suppose to look, even after I showed her the pictures and notes and told her I had over ten years experience she still insisted I didn't know anything about makeup or her face. When it looked like she was going to be stuck with me doing her make up, Reese threw a tantrum, she was screaming that she wouldn't let me or anyone touch her face except the woman who had been doing her make up. She raised such a fuss that it delayed filming by almost four hours. Because of the fuss she made I had to go in front of the director and other bosses to explain myself. Thankfully I had all the notes, pictures and videos to back me up. She had tried to get me fired. When she finally did deign to come back to make up she was all sweetness and light, acting like nothing happened.

That first day after I got done doing her make up she tore into me saying I didn't get it right or even close. I took a picture i had just taken and then showed it to her next to the one taken the day before and asked her which one I did and she couldn't tell

Other incidences:

Even tho her assistant was right there doing nothing, she tried to get one of the other makeup artists, who was in the middle of doing makeup to go get her a bottle of water because the kind of water we had was 'wrong'. when he refused she threw a fit, tho this one didn't delay filming. She did this a few times, every time her assistant got up to do it she would snap at her to sit down because she wanted  that one certain makeup artists not her or  his assistants to do it. After the 4th or 5th time we bought a case of the water she was always demanding someone get her so she couldn't pull that crap anymore.

She tried to get one of her co-stars fired. Right before she came into the make up room the co- star (who is an amazing funny guy) said something hysterically funny and we were all laughing so hard some had tears running down their faces. The punch line of the joke was "And how was your morning darlin'?", when she came in he said to her "How's your morning darlin'?" which sett us all again into hysterical laughing. He tried to explain that we weren't laughing at her, and tried to explain the joke, but she wasn't having any of it, she was SO sure the joke was about her and went to TPTB to get him fired. I think it may have came close to happening but it didn't, because the guy is sweet, funny and doesn't have a mean bone is hid body.

She was always on the phone to one of her friends talking shit about her co stars, then she'd call another friend and told him/her things that the first friend had said about the second friend. Then she called the first friend back to tell them everything. This went on and on with her friends. A few days later she was complaining that she had no friends she could trust, they were all backstabbers.

She also was horrid to her ass

by Anonymousreply 11104/22/2013

Sorry, my post got cut off in the middle. This is the rest of it

She also was horrid to her assistant. One example; she was hungry so she sent her assistant to get her some food, because she didn't want any of the food offered on set. The assistant had to leave the shooting area and go into town to the restaurant she had ate at the night before to get her food. She's a picky eater so her order was no xxx, no xy, extra zz, the food had to be cooked a certain way, with aaa and bb sauce on the side, but the ooo should be on the dish but not on the food itself. Her assistant wrote it down and repeated it back to make sure she had it right. When the assistant got back with her food she screamed at her that she had screwed up the order. When the assistant went to her to show that the order was prepared exactly as Reese had told her she wanted it, Reese screamed in her face calling her a retarded cunt, then she took the food container and ground the food into the assistant's face and hair, covering her face, hair and chest with extremely hot food. When the assistant went to get cleaned up Reese told her to sit in the chair covered in food because if she got up she was fired.

What really made me and the rest of the behind scene people dislike her was when she was going to different groups involved in the film and telling them lies that she supposedly heard the other departments saying about them. She came close to causing a civil war on the set.

The last day of filming she came in with gifts for everyone and told everyone how much she loved working with us, and hoped we'd all work together again soon.

Psychotic two faced bitch.

by Anonymousreply 13504/22/2013

Please, R134 and R135. First, where are you getting the "close to an hour" notion, and can you trust it? Second, a DUI is a serious offense. Or didn't you know that? He was endangering people - driving on the wrong side of the road. AND his blood alcohol level was seriously high, not borderline. Third, the two were presenting issues - she was drunk, too, apparently, and being loud and intruding on a legal (and routine, by the way) process. Fourth, she was in the car when the drunk driver was driving and pulled over (after driving on the wrong side of the road) - the police do not simply shoo passengers away when a drunk is pulled over, especially when they are belligerent.

Fifth, R135, and this is where your clueless yet entitled idiocy shines forth, what the hell do you mean how is it legal for a police officer to conduct a DUI case on the street following normal procedures? Your lack of understanding either of routine police procedure and the underlying seriousness of the matter doesn't excuse you from rank stupidity. You don't let drunks mingle and mix and run around together when you've got a drunk driver. The fact that she FORCED an arrest by intruding, as her husband was then dealing with her like drunks do, is the perfect example of why she was to remain in the vehicle and keep quiet. Her husband wasn't being roughed up. He wasn't having his civil rights undermined. He was an asshole putting other people's lives at risk and he was paying the consequence for that.

And I'm writing as someone who has had a family member beat to death by police, so it's not like I'm an apologist. I just don't see how in this case you can try to turn it into a patriot "on American soil" job. Cunt.

R107, please don't take this the wrong way, but Reese didn't write or say a word of that. That was well crafted spin.

I was a personal assistant at the time for one of the principles on a movie she shot in Canada. When I left LA to go work on the film, people warned me that she was a beast. She is the vilest of vile cunts I have ever worked with in this business, and I hate the use of that word, but nothing else fits. She kept making fun of Canada in earshot of the crew, she never liked the food and she treated one of her co-stars horribly.

And notice she didn't mention anything about the DUI. I understand she wasn't driving, but it was her fucking husband who was endangering people. I do understand that her publicity team probably wants to avoid linking her to a DUI situation so it's in their best interest to avoid mentioning it altogether.

She's had like 3 or 4 flops in a row, so maybe she'll be gone soon enough.

Still want to know why she was 'restrained'. Being obnoxious is not illegal. And, requesting an explanation of procedure, even during an arrest of someone else, is not illegal or necessarily an example of hindering the enforcement of a law.

If she is not being arrested, she had a right to request information, ie why has he been handcuffed for so long; where is he being taken; what is the officer's name; a request for enough movement to begin securing legal representation or a ride for herself or even freedom to seek bathroom facilities...

These are normal American rights. If she was too drunk to be safely in public then the policeman was remiss in not arresting her.

Is she really a bad actress? I've only seen her as a kid in "The Man in the Moon" and she was quite good and then "Legally Blonde" in which she was serviceable to what the part required.

As much as the "Do you know my name?" is absurd, I'm also amused by the "I'm a US citizen and I am allowed to stand on American ground.” Is that a line from one of her films?

Also, wasn't there something about her having a habit of buying shoes and then returning them for a full refund after they had obviously been worn? People let her get away with it because they didn't want the hassle with her. Am I remembering this right?

by Anonymousreply 16004/22/2013

This actress is A list through and through. She has achieved about the most success an actress can receive. Money, fame and awards. She wanted to be the world's sweetheart, but if they knew how she got to her lofty position they would be rethinking their judgment.

When Backstabber came to Hollywood she thought she was hot and that she could make it on her looks. Back home she was always the prettiest and she figured she would be here too. Nope. Not even close. She was smart enough to figure that out and also learned about the casting couch really quickly. Her first roles were secured via the casting couch and also led her to do some things she has never done since on film. It is true that she has attempted to buy some of those earlier films and then make sure no new copies are ever released.

In one of her casting couch experiences she met a mentor who has guided her almost every step of the way. Although they stopped sleeping together after six months when Backstabber threatened to tell his wife, they have been good friends ever since and Backstabber makes sure to send over some young actresses she runs into looking for a break to his office to keep him happy.

It came to Backstabber's attention that there was a role which would be perfect for her but the lead had been promised to someone else. Another actress who had very similar qualities and beat out Backstabber for a career defining role and made her white hot. Destined for A list (and still with great name recognition, but not Crash & Burn from yesterday), she made a few more movies and now has one bomb after another on television and in movies. Backstabber started whispering in ears that this actress had a drug problem and could not be relied on. She told everyone she could about the drugs and booze and erratic behavior. None of it was true, but what was a shoo in for the actress and her spot as the actress to watch disappeared in a flash and went to Backstabber.

This is where it gets interesting. On the set, Backstabber met her soon to be husband, but he was already having sex with two of the other still B list co-stars and would have laughed if you told him what Backstabber had in mind. Aside from the casting couch, Backstabber was not and is not a sexual person. She does it out of duty. For this guy though, she knew that would not work. She seduced and teased and the next thing you know, the guy had left the other two co-stars in the dust and was on his knee in a second trying to marry Backstabber. To be the world's sweetheart you needed a husband. Mission accomplished. The only misfire Backstabber had was that her husband would chat in a second and with Backstabber only having sex with him once a month at the most, he would go wandering and straying. She did not mind when he was quiet about it, but after she paid for the third abortion for him, he was out the door.

While they were married, Backstabber continued to climb the Hollywood ladder. Drug accusations here, sending over some of her "friends" from back home to spend the night with a studio executive. To get the ultimate prize, she actually did have sex with a few people who could make or break things for her. She has no actress friends left in Hollywood because she has talked smack about everyone of them. She works for charities but only because it is expected. She has said privately that she keeps every penny she has ever made and that she is not going to give her money to a bunch of broke people or the N word on the street. Oh yeah, she is racist. Probably more so than anyone at a KKK rally. Movies with black people? Not if she can help it. Earlier in her career she could not control it. Now? Casting approval. No black people. Other minorities? No thank you. If she sees you drinking she will try and have you fired. Swearing? She better not hear you. Yeah, so it was a real treat when she had to work with a guy who dropped F bombs every five seconds and had a string of hookers and booze in his trailer the whole shoot. You can see her grimacing the entire movie.

That may be true, but the reason Ryan married Reese is because she got pregnant.

While that wouldn't surprise me at all, why would Reese have to pay for anyone's abortions? Multimillionaire Ryan has his own money. And the reason she divorced him was because he carried on a VERY public affair with Abbie Cornish while they were filming Stop Loss in Texas. All the extras on the film were talking about their affair all over the internet during filming. Ryan and Abbie went on to have a relationship during and after his divorce. That ended when he got caught cheating on her too

[quote] She has no actress friends left in Hollywood because she has talked smack about everyone of them.

Reese does have friends in Hollywood. She's friends with Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston and even Chelsea Handler. She just went on vacation with Diaz and Barrymore

Always seemingly mild mannered and sweet, this A+ list mostly movie actress can be just like her carefully crafted Hollywood public image. But, if you cross her or displease her in anyway, be prepared for some serious vindictiveness coming your way. The best way to deal with our actress is just let her have at you and get it over with. For the most part she is a short term yeller who then smiles and changes the subject and is ready to be friends again. Sure, she can carry a grudge as her actor ex-husband found out. There was not a day in the last two years of their marriage that she did not belittle him or remind him of the pecking order of the house and the fights were legendary. Screaming and throwing things. He just sat back and took it because she could have made things much worse for him and told the world about his cheating but didn't in order to protect the family. One boyfriend found out the hard way that you don't cancel weekend plans with the actress at the last minute. She got him to stop by and handed him five trash bags filled with his shredded clothes. That sweet smile of hers hides the mouth of a sailor and if you get her drinking? Forget about it. She will call anyone out. The reason she likes her current guy so much is that he stood up to her. They first met when she was drunk and out with friends. She likes a guy to be a guy and it makes you wonder why she dated one guy for so long.

Reese was with Toth 1-2 years before they went public, under his advise, because she got so much positive tabloid mileage out of dating Jake G. Supposedly. It also conveniently gave Toth the freedom to step out on her, because she was preoccupied.

Reese will never divorce Toth. As long as he has clout and remains a big shot at CAA she'll stay in the marriage.She knew her career was in trouble long before she married him. But don't feel sorry for him. He's a mean drunk.

She still gets roles because she's married to a big shot, and makes sure everyone "knows who she is." All the time. Reese loves the power she perceives she has now. She has no real friends in H'wood. Everything is CAA sponsored. (Including Nikki Finke who's their mouthpiece.)

The real question is whether Toth has lost standing with the top guns at CAA. There really was no reason for Toth to be in Atlanta. None. She probably threw a tantrum, had "problems on set" and insisted he come down.

So he "picked her up" to go to the Tribeca Film Festival screening for her movie. The plan was to spend time in NYC and expense everything. That's Reese's other speciality. She never ever pays for anything. Ever.

To the degree Reese sucks up all of Toth's time and energy, she's weakening him at the very job that provides her, and her ex-hubby with work. Their marriage is a business arrangement not a love match.

As long as Toth delivers and makes decisions that are profitable, CAA will indulge him with Reese. His strategy has been to pair her with guys he thought would prop her up. He has her paired up with McConnaughey right now, who's still good box office.

She did a movie with Rob Pattinson, but it tanked. Vince Vaughan was a disaster. Then the second tier up and comers, who are cheap to hire, and need more exposure, like Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, Christopher Waltz.

She's doing a smaller role in the movie about the kids who were murdered in Tennessee, playing the mother of a murdered child. Oscar bait. The most bizarre thing she's done lately is sing a duet with Michael Buble. And not very well.

McConnaughey and his wife, and Reese & Toth are both members of the same church, too. They actually go to church together.Maybe the next photos will be Reese, Jim, and all her "adorable" kids going to church together. Bet.

Jim Toth liked her. He was infatuated with her. They started out fine. It was a "whirlwind courtship." She was a cash cow for them for long enough to matter.

There was a niche market for her romantic comedies with the People Magazine demographic. They talked her down from the $15 Million salary she always demanded after she got paid more than the box office gross on a movie.

Jim was marrying a movie star, America's Sweetheart, and she has a good head for business, smart, not vapid. As she faded she'd a perfect Industry wife and confidant.

Toth was single, mentored by Bryan Lourd but not gay. He's been a womanizer for years. He was moving up at CAA, and his image needed to be "rounded out." He used to tag team bikini girls.

Reese and Toth are most likely high-functioning sociopaths (any top Hollywood agent is a sociopath.) The best way to describe how sociopaths see relationships is comparing the other person in a relationship to an envelope filled with money; you don't know how much money is inside but as long as it keeps trickling out, you'll keep the envelope around. They are both useful to each other, each one is the other's trophy. Even if they don't love each other, as long as they can still get something personally beneficial out of the relationship, they will continue the pretense of the marriage.

R235, that describes a hell of a lot of marriages. Probably most. Calling it psychopathy is going too far. We all have a bit of selfishness and/or self-preservation in us. It doesn't cancel out the better nature in us. It just makes it human. These people are no different.

Is all the fuss over Reese Witherspoon's recent arrest much ado about nothing? Chelsea Handler certainly seems to think so. Asked about her A-list pal at the annual E! Network upfronts in New York City on Monday, April 22, the late-night host (who was arrested herself at age 21 for DUI) said that Witherspoon was dealing well with the fallout from her minor run-in with the law. "She's doing fine. She's doing fine, you know?" Handler told Entertainment Tonight of the Mud actress, who was arrested on Friday, April 19, in Atlanta, Ga. "She was just trying to protect her husband, so...I mean everybody makes mistakes, so it's not a big deal. I do coke all the time with my boyfriend."

Truth is, her husband is good to his clients. Seems like as Reese becomes more and more irrelevant, it's more and more important for her to get in people's faces with how important she is. She loves being Mrs. CAA and havng people be afraid to mess with her.

“If you’re Reese Witherspoon, who do you sell out to save your own ass when the MiniVan Majority suddenly isn’t so impressed with it?” -- This was the final line of my post yesterday re: Reese Witherspoon’s arrest for being a bratty bitch to a police officer in Atlanta. Click here for a refresher. And here’s another refresher: DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? Remember that and the implications behind the question: I am better than you and I can and will destroy you.

Witherspoon was supposed to appear on Jimmy Fallon tonight to promote her new film Mud. She walked the carpet at the premiere in New York on Sunday night but did not work the press line. Not surprisingly, given all that’s happened, she’s not prepared to answer any questions about the incident on television. And Fallon would have to go there. I suppose the low profile play is probably the safest one. Certainly her legal advisors would have encouraged it. Especially since the entire arrest report has been released.

According to the officer who arrested Witherspoon and Jim Toth:

“I asked Mr. Toth how much he had to drink. Mr. Toth stated a drink. When asked where he had his drinks, Mr. Toth looked at the passenger, Mrs. Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon, and she began to answer. Mrs. Witherspoon stated that he had his drink at a restaurant. Mrs. Witherspoon stated that the drink was consumed two hours prior to the incident. I asked Mr. Toth if he would perform field sobriety. Mr. Toth gave verbal consent.”

One drink? Two hours ago?

Is that... is that a lie, Reese Witherspoon?!?

Click here to read the report in its entirety. That’s not the Reese we’ve known for 15 years, is it? Hanging out the car window, waving her finger, questioning the officer’s credentials, spewing nonsense about her rights as a citizen...Is that the Southern belle who once stood on stage at the MTV Movie Awards, chastising girls for sex tapes? The arrest report describes someone entirely different, non?

Which is why Team Reese is working so hard to fix the problem. And now we go back to who she’ll be selling out. Before the end of the day yesterday, PEOPLE posted this article about how “awful” Jim Toth feels to have “dragged” her into this mess. PEOPLE’s “source” goes on to imply that Toth may have a drinking problem and another “source” takes it even further, claiming that “no one would be surprised if Jim goes to rehab”.

WHOA.

What just happened?

Reese Witherspoon drops the “Do You Know Who I Am?” card, gets busted for it, and suddenly her husband is an alcoholic? She... was drinking too, wasn’t she? She’s already acknowledged that she “clearly had one drink too many” that night. How did we get here?!?

Well, it helps when your husband is in the business and understands exactly how this sh-t works. Toth is with CAA. Reese is with CAA. You always protect the talent. The talent, in this case, needs to appear sympathetic. In the celebrity ecosystem, it’s only natural then that he be the one to willingly eat the sacrifice. So that they can feed the MiniVan Majority a sympathy story:

Pooooooor Reese, no wonder, her husband is a drunk! Under so much stress, and with a l’il baby at home too, who can blame her for saying some silly things? She didn’t mean them! He put her in such a bad position. She was just trying to protect him! Because that’s what wives and mothers do. We are nurturers and protectors. We are mamma bears!

And it might actually work. Because people would rather believe in sickness, in addiction, in any other reason OTHER than the fact that sometimes, for no reason, just because, some people are just c-nts.

By the way, around the same time PEOPLE reported that Jim Toth was to blame, US Weekly posted that Reese and Jim hooked up with Cameron Diaz and Chelsea Handler at a party on Sunday night but didn’t drink and cuddled instead. Apparently the only beverage on the table was San Pellegrino. And Chelsea Handler was there?!?

When Reese was still relatively new on the scene, something of a big deal was trying to be made about her ancestor signing the Declaration of Independence or a similar document. I know that that means something to a couple of subgroups within the US, but big whoop de dee!

It so often seems that people who pull the "My ancestor or relative was so-and-so" card present themselves as being so superior to others, yet they are often trashy with questionable morals and values. Reese and her family, complete with molester bother and bigamist father, seem to be par for the course.

We will also see evidence of Reese doing good works. Not only Avon, which pays her, BTW, and probably would love to dump her, but she'll do something with small children or negroes. It will work out very well for her, and, hopefully for her husband, even though his salvation is not required.

Reese has that baby, now, so she will really make his life hell. Pray the poor guy doesn't lose his job. At least not until they give him a cash settlement and a movie deal so he becomes a very successful producer of films.

by Anonymousreply 32004/24/2013

Couple things. People Magazine is saying Reese was looking down in her mug shot because she was "wobbily" and couldn't stand still. As in drunk on her ass.

Secondly, Chelsea Handler was supposed to meet Reese in NYC at the Greenwich for drinks of all things. Other people were there at the bar because it's the Tribeca film festival. So it wasn't the show of affection and solidarity it's been portrayed as.

It reads like this group was meeting there with Reese to cheer her up. Not so. People were there + Reese was there = "friends getting together."If anyone needs cheering it's her husband.

by Anonymousreply 32104/24/2013

Film analysts weigh in - they don't think this scandal will hurt Reese's career. In fact, it could *help*.

"So, will last Friday's incident leave a mark on her permanent record?

"This will blow over [by the time of her next starring role] and it's not really such a big deal," said Exhibitor Relations box office analyst Jeff Bock of the incident. "She's kind of been off-the-radar in terms of leading lady roles for a while and hasn't really been newsworthy for a long time, so maybe it actually helps." ...

Breanne L. Heldman, New York bureau chief of Yahoo! Entertainment, agreed with Bock that Witherspoon, 37, did the right thing for immediately sending out a heartfelt apology for her actions and attempting to clean up the mess quickly.

"She's maintained that squeaky clean image her whole career ... and at the end of the day, she now has a strike on her record, but [considering that] she's in her late 30s and has managed a career like that for 20 years, people will forgive her pretty quickly," predicted Heldman."

Don't get so worked up. It was an arrest for a disorderly. Which is going to get dismissed. It was in the middle of the night nearing the end of a shift - even cops sometimes don't give a shit about a mug shot for this type of offense.

And if anyone thinks the cops are all riled up because she dissed one of them, I doubt it. They'd just think it's funny. They got a little back just by humiliating her and arresting her which they really didn't need to do.

And we get to laugh at her hoity toity attitude that ended up biting her in the ass. As for her BA level, she's short and small so it wouldn't take much to make her tipsy and wobbly. Even 2 drinks would easily do it.

“So I was very busy working and I couldn’t go, so I had my assistant go with him [laughs]. She said it was just awful, ‘Reese it smelled so bad it was disgusting, you’re so glad you didn’t go.’

“They really go down into the sewer and explain the whole system and how it was built hundreds of years ago. It’s kind of cool.” [Transcribed from Reese Witherspoon's appearance on the Late Show, aired 11/25/08]

There'll be all kinds of efforts to soften the images of both husband and wife. This is coming at the worst possible time for her career wise. It's certainly not going to make her husband look good at work. This better be his very last time in the limelight for being a drunk.

I wonder how his peers and bosses feel about his high profile since he married her. He is getting notoriety for all the wrong reasons. It's one thing to emerge over time as a legitimate successor to Bryan Lourd, etc. at CAA ,and take your place in the pantheon of H'wood superagents.

When people thank him at awards ceremonies it legitimizes him. But when he's papped for being Mr. Witherspoon, and now arrested for drunk driving in Atlanta? Even being in Atlanta would be considered a distraction from his real job. But she requires it.

I still think it says something that he had to go to Atlanta. Can you imagine what living with them is like for those kids? And Ryan has had alcohol issues for years.

Reese has been on a downward slide since before she married him. I think she knew her career was stalling and decided to "marry up." No more actors.

She wants power and influence and to be taken care of for life. That's why she married this guy. He is pretty near the top of the pyramid at CAA.

The problem is, if he's so dominated by salvaging her career, and finding projects for her and jobs for Ryan, and jumping up to run to her movie locations when ever she "needs" him, he'll lose ground at CAA.

If that happens, he won't be quite as useful to her. Then what? She won't divorce him unless he is a complete loser. She hung on to Ryan long past the time his shelf life expired. Reese needs to be married. It's part of her image.

Where are the claims that she is racist? I have read that over and over on here, but I don't know what the origins of this are from?

And sometimes I wonder if the claims about her being a bitch are even true? I mean, can a woman in hollywood, who is strong, determined, ambitious ever not be called a bitch?

I think there is a strong double standard about what the men vs. what the women get away with in Hollywood. Just like there is a double standard in that the public seems more willing to accept actresses who identify as lesbian or bi, than they are men who identify as gay or Bi.

When I read that Julia or Reese are bitches, I can't help but wonder if they just get called that just for speaking their mind, and not being little miss Sunshine all the time.

On the other hand, I do remember that Reese and Vince Vaughn didn't get along during 4 Christmases. Interesting tidbit there, Vince used to date years ago. They did a movie together called A Cool Dry Place which was a decent rainy day movie. If you have ever wondered if Vince hot, you should watch it. As his looks are at their peak in this movie. Too bad he doesn't do more drama as he is a better dramatic actor than he is with his same old comedy schtick

I do agree that there is some level of sexism but famous people interaction with law enforcement over intoxication plays out whether male or female (Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan, Reese Witherspoon, Britney Spears, Charlie Sheen, James Brolin, etc.).

Writer-director Jeff Nichols had the idea for Mud back in college during the ’90s. The film follows two teenage boys who encounter a fugitive (McConaughey) and form a pact to help him evade the bounty hunters on his trail and to reunite him with his true love. “I was thinking who I’d like to hang out with on an island on the Mississippi River and that was Matthew McConaughey”, joked Nichols who spoke at the Apple Store in SoHo last weekend in New York. “And I liked him in Lone Star”. “He is the DNA of the project”, said McConaughey. “I’ve done over 40 films and I’ve never done one in which we stayed so closely to the script as on this film”. The Cinema Society hosted the New York premiere of Mud last Sunday and Nichols and McConaughey were joined by Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Paulson at the event and party at nightspot Harlow. Witherspoon did not join the Apple store conversation and she also notably cancelled scheduled appearances on GMA and Fallon following her recent arrest in Georgia. Asked if he thought Witherspoon’s turn from the public eye might affect the film’s opening weekend, Roadside Attractions chief Howard Cohen sounded upbeat. “We’re doing a big television buy and we have Matthew out everywhere”, he said. “We’re totally focused on the great things we’ve done and she’s great in the movie. It happened and it’s played out, but she’s great and did a ton of press ahead of time and she also attended the premiere and I don’t think it will have an impact”.

I know the popular sentiment is "she can recover," but she was arrested after her career stalled. That means she has to make a comeback, which could take years. Even when "The Good Lie," comes out in 2014, people will write that it was filmed when the actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested in Atlanta. She's no Sandra Bullock. Even Julia Roberts has not figured out yet how to come back in her 40's. Why would Reese start to come back after this? Over.

It would be sad if she had not been a bitch for years.

US Weekly takes on the "Real" Reese in this week's issue:

The Atlanta disaster started as a couple's night out. "They were out having a good time and didn't know how drunk they were," says a Witherspoon friend. But the incident highlights one fault line in the two-year marriage. "Jim's drinking has been an issue for her," says a close Witherspoon source. Indeed, at his 2011 bachelor party in Ojai, California, a source says, the groom-to-be was passed out at 7:15 P.M. Says the insider. "Something like this was bound to happen."

The outburst also reveals a crack in Witherspoon's sweetheart veneer. Though the Nashville debutante has cultivated a rep as a perky perfectionist who loves Tupperware and Southern recipes, those closet to her say she can go into diva mode. One insider recalls a magazine shoot where Witherspoon said she "didn't want to meet anyone she didn't already know that day." Then there was the awards show, when, a source says, she snapped at a red carpet handler. "Reese looked at her publicist and asked, 'Why is she talking to me?'"

She's even worse when people [italic]don't[/italic] recognize her. Last year, a waiter at her West Hollywood haunt The Palm caught her scorn. "She asked him to say hi to the manager 'from Reese,'" says a source. "When the server asked,'Just Reese?' She said '[italic]Reese Witherspoon[/italic]' in a condescending tone."

R403, "Mud" is in under 400 theaters, so $2 million is actually pretty good. You can't equate it to a national-release blockbuster and argue the film will "fail" if it only grosses $10 million or so (and moreover blame its failure on Reese).

« Zach Braff hits $2 million Kickstarter target | Main | Carey Mulligan sealed ‘Gatsby’ role with a kiss » Reese Witherspoon suffering memory loss since baby son’s birth

Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon has struggled with memory loss since giving birth to her third child last year.

Last September, the “Legally Blonde” star and her husband Jim Toth became parents to Tennessee James, a sibling for Witherspoon’s two children with Ryan Phillippe, 13-year-old Ava and Deacon, nine.

However, Witherspoon reveals her memory has deteriorated since she gave birth – and she finds it difficult to remember simple tasks.

She tells Britain’s Red magazine, “Ever since I had the baby, I can’t remember anything. Serious, this child stole my brain. I’m losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. But you can’t keep up with everything. I’ve got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby.

“It’s like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times: ‘Where is Ava? She’s OK. Good. Where is Deacon? He’s OK. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he OK? Yes. Great. Back to Ava…’ It doesn’t stop.”

Witherspoon’s comments have emerged a little over a week since she was arrested for disorderly conduct – the blonde beauty was held on April 19 after arguing with a traffic cop who had pulled over the car Toth was driving in Atlanta, Georgia. The talent agent was also booked for driving while intoxicated.

How can other clients trust him, especially women, when it's obvious everything that comes into the pipeline has to cross Reese's desk before anyone else is considered. It's as if she has first refusal. I can see CAA giving him a nice severance package so he can become an independent "producer."

My eyes grew wide and I sputtered an apology again. She then pulled out her pièce de résistance: "I'm pregnant." Really? She wasn't showing. I can only assume she did it to make me feel guilty for having so brazenly tripped her up. By that point, my friends and I didn't bother adding fuel to the fire by asking why she was drunk off her ass in her first trimester. Her husband was hustling her off by then.

DASH CAM VIDEO! Yes, including the infamous "Do you know my name?" line!!

by Anonymousreply 42705/02/2013

Okay, having seen the video ... I'm afraid I have to change my initial opinion and side with Reese. (Flame away if you must, bitches.) I've seen WAY too many instances of police abuse of discretion to pin the blame largely, or even mostly, on her. She wasn't acting like an entitled bitch, but rather someone simply upset that a police officer was treating her husband (who was not being at all aggressive or uncooperative, per the incident report) like a common street thug. I, too, would have been both upset and REALLY pissed if I got out of the car to ask a cop a question and was arrested and CUFFED in response (which was fucking ridiculous, considering the doors in the back of a police car are locked from the outside - it's not like she was a flight risk notwithstanding that fact).

Yes, the "do you know my name?" line was over the top, but now we know the context in which she said it: it was MUCH less "diva" and much more matter-of-fact "you realize that because of my name your actions will make the national news" ... which is precisely what happened.

My takeaway is that Reese Witherspoon is a mean bitch. It's too bad that TMZ chopped up the video, because one long version would have told a better story. Wasn't this at 3:00 in the morning or something? She sounds exactly like a rich person who is indignant that her drunk husband is getting arrested, and she will not stay in the car and she cannot believe that she is being arrested.

1. You attempt to connect the DUI stop of a vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road involving rich, famous white people with the experience of African Americans and Hispanics (capitalize it, if you're so sensitive). Absurd.

2. You have no knowledge of the law - you attempt to declare what a passenger's rights are and what a law enforcement officer can and cannot legally do, with no actual basis in fact. Stupid and ignorant.

3. You casually and blindly ignore the fact that not only the driver but the passenger evidenced inebriation. A responsible officer does not attempt to chase a drunk around as he or she is attempting to manage a drunk driver.

4. You also attempt to equate a passenger's attempting to obtain information with Ms. Witherspoon's outrageous behavior, which may or may not have reflected her true personality as well as her being drunk. Did you miss the part about her claiming to be pregnant? Her refusal to cooperate?

5. If this rich white woman had any sense, she would have called her attorney for guidance. Since you and others keep saying she had an hour to do it.

Shut up about rights. You don't understand the rights you have nor the obligations of the police in a case such as this to protect those rights from being bled out of you as a drunk careens into your worthless, know-nothing, loser ass.

[quote]2. You have no knowledge of the law - you attempt to declare what a passenger's rights are and what a law enforcement officer can and cannot legally do, with no actual basis in fact.

Clearly, you have no knowledge of the law, either; as a lawyer I, however, do. A passenger in a vehicle pulled over under suspicion of its driver being intoxicated cannot leave the premises, but he or she is free to move about and act in any fashion that does not actively hinder a police officer's job. She can exit a car (though it is advisable for her to keep her hands visible at all times), make calls on a cell phone, or generally just pace worriedly.

[quote]3. You casually and blindly ignore the fact that not only the driver but the passenger evidenced inebriation.

It is not a crime to be drunk (if you're not driving), not should it be conflated with "public intoxication." Unless Witherspoon was drunk to the point of being literally unable to stand without assistance, she had every right to exit the car so long as she remained in easy eyesight and engaged in normal, unsuspicious activity.

[quote]A responsible officer does not attempt to chase a drunk around as he or she is attempting to manage a drunk driver.

There is almost never only one officer present during a DUI pullover and field sobriety test; it's usually two to four officers.

[quote]You also attempt to equate a passenger's attempting to obtain information with Ms. Witherspoon's outrageous behavior, which may or may not have reflected her true personality as well as her being drunk.

Being a "bitch" to police officers isn't illegal, either. Witherspoon was arrested *only* because her behavior finally reached the threshold of substantially interfering with the arresting officer's interrogation of her husband.

[quote]If this rich white woman had any sense, she would have called her attorney for guidance. Since you and others keep saying she had an hour to do it.

Newsflash: attorneys don't sleep with their phones by their beds. Not even DUI attorneys. People taken into custody for DUI are released on personal bond 99% of the time, assuming there are no mitigating circumstances (meaning outstanding warrants or being on probation at the time of arrest, not "being a famous celebrity").

[quote]You don't understand the rights you have nor the obligations of the police in a case such as this to protect those rights from being bled out of you as a drunk careens into your worthless, know-nothing, loser ass.

And YOU don't appear to understand that two rather important facets of American jurisprudence are the First and Fourth Amendments, both designed specifically to prevent unreasonable searches and seizures, as well as other forms of police abuse. Since it sounds like you'd rather live in a police state where even minor infractions of the law are dealt with in the harshest possible manner, might I suggest Singapore? Or perhaps Tehran?

She's just lucky they didn't run a drug screen on her bitchy, entitled, drunk ass.

America's sweetheart? Fucking hoover nose.

Just saw the TMZ video, her husband just stood there when she was going off and then told the cop "Sorry, I had nothing to do with that". HAHAHA, he even knew she was acting the fool.

by Anonymousreply 43905/02/2013

R437, you are contradicting yourself so I pray that you are not a real lawyer who has clients. What's shocking about this video is that she bolts out of the car AFTER her husband has failed a sobriety test. Yes, she panicked, but she can't interfere with a police officer's job. You state this and it's clearly in the video. I don't want to waste my time here but I would like to thank Reese Witherspoon for showing just how distasteful and obnoxious rich, drunk Hollywood types can be. This is what an A-lister is really like, at least the ones that have no class.

[quote]431, nope. We are losing our rights as American citizens, something blacks and hispanics on the rode minding their business already know. The driver was wrong and got what was called for. But the passenger has a right to ask about being detained unnecessarily, the nature of the situation, and what is going to be required next. And, they certainly and legally can not be 'ordered' to wait inside a car for over an hour to find these things out.

and, your response was "you don't understand the rights you have nor the obligations of the police in a case such as this to protect those rights from being bled out of you as a drunk careens into your worthless, know-nothing, loser ass."

yep, classy. that's you.

lol

I'm stunned that anybody can watch that video and say Reese was acting as anything other than a cunt.

The police officer was treating Jim as a common thug? Are you kidding me? He was drunk driving, weaving in and out of traffic on Atlanta's main thoroughfare. The cop was being very polite and professional, Jim was surprisingly calm and cooperative and then there's Laura Jeanne popping in and out of the car after REPEATEDLY being told to just stay in the car and wait. It was probably a shock to her that somebody actually told her "no" and had some power and authority over her in that situation. She wasn't told once or twice to sit down, I think the cop told her to stay put around 7 times before he finally cuffed her. Even her husband knew she was out of line.

You can't just start arguing with a cop as they are giving a sobriety test. First she starts with the "I'm pregnant thing", then the arguing and then finally "you're going to know my name" threats.

No wonder she went on GMA yesterday. She knew this was going to come out and make her look even worse than the initial police report.

No, this is the REAL Laura Jeanne Poon and it ain't pretty. Makes me believe every nasty rumor and story about her. A nasty piece of work.

Maybe it's my distrust of cops (whom I've seen use brute force when it wasn't necessary)but this video isn't that bad. Of course, Reese was wrong, and her asshole husband shouldn't have been driving drunk.

by Anonymousreply 44305/03/2013

This is probably a dumb question, but is Laura Jean Poone her real name or was that a goof?

by Anonymousreply 44405/03/2013

Her real name is Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon.

by Anonymousreply 44505/03/2013

People must really hate her and her husband. This story is almost two weeks old and won't go away. They must have no power anymore - a powerful couple would have been able to make this go away.

Thanks, R445. I was puzzled by that and thought the bookers at the police station gave her a porn name as a joke.

Why does any star say, "Do you know who I am?" So stupid. That might work in ass kissing Hollywood but in the rest of the country, it's asking for trouble.

by Anonymousreply 44805/03/2013

I call this blind as REESE. It mirrors what I've heard and what so many others have posted here about her. And Lainey has made it clear for quite awhile (WAY before the arrest) that she's sitting on some good Reese shit. ---------------------------------------

No one wants to work with Hollywood’s most difficult mother. She now has a reputation among child care agencies for being the most unpopular celebrity nanny employer and many now only send to her the nannies on their staff who specialise in dealing with mega bitch moms.

She is surprisingly less organised than you would think, often requesting services with no lead time and expecting to be offered priority treatment. When the nanny arrives, she often won’t speak to the person directly, communicating via her assistant, and often implying that the person isn’t attractive enough, and because of this, may or may not sell her out. Because only ugly people compromise confidentiality, I guess?

She confiscates cell phones. She also demands to go through the nanny’s private messages. After a dinner party once, when she and her friends were particularly mouthy, backstabbing several prominent actors and actresses, she demanded to search the nanny who had stayed late -- without prior notice -- so as to make sure she wasn’t bugged and threatened legal action for no reason. Speaking of working hours, she has been known to require extra time but isn’t willing to pay for it, rationalising her request by blaming the person for an imaginary offensive -- like missing diapers or a bent branch/stem in the garden. Ie. “I notice that the whatever bush over there looks a little trampled. You weren’t careful enough. You are staying an extra two hours.”

She is known to be verbally abusive and impatient. She once watched a nanny pick up spilled baby food all over the floor while tapping her hand on the counter and criticising the person’s physique and intellect as the reason for why it was taking so long. Many nannies in LA, hearing horror stories from their peers, have turned potential work placements with her because they don’t want to bother with the drama.

Not Jennifer Garner.

That very powerful spell caster STOP THE DIVORCE – and get my ex boyfriend back. My name is Joy Philip, from Canada. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went for a business summit early this year. I meant a man who's name is PROPHET AHMED he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down because our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster,i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try.And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend(now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mother and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better.in case you are in any situation you can contact prophet ahmed at his email solutiontemple399@gmail.com or his personal cell +2347053375151 Thank you for all your help prophet.

Joy Phillip - Are you one of those types of brides who send out angry e-mails demanding more cash or presents of greater value when you are dissatisfied with what you've received? Or does the prophet take care of that for you? Just checking.
