Thus begins Reese Witherspoon’s Apology Tour ’13. Last week, the Oscar-winning actress canceled appearances on both Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and Good Morning America in the wake of her arrest for disorderly conduct on April 19. But now that April’s given way to May, Witherspoon is apparently ready to talk about her brush with the Atlanta Department of Corrections — and perhaps also about Mud, the movie she was getting ready to promote before she got cuffed in the first place.
Talk of the film naturally took a back seat to talk of her arrest when Witherspoon stopped by Good Morning America earlier today. “We went out to dinner in Atlanta and we had one too many glasses of wine,” she explained, referring to herself and her husband, Jim Toth, whose own DUI arrest inspired the outburst that would get Witherspoon charged with disorderly conduct. “We thought we were fine to drive and we absolutely were not. We know better and we shouldn’t have done that.”
