For years I’ve been hearing from people in the industry that Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are the polar opposites of their America’s sweethearts personas.
Although Jennifer’s reputation has [so far] remained intact, Reese’s took a hit after she was arrested for disorderly contact while drunk and was briefly jailed in Atlanta over the weekend.
I’m sure you all know the details by now, Reese’s husband Jim Toth blew a .139 on the breathalyzer when pulled over for erratic driving in Atlanta on Friday and Reese pulled the ‘Don’t you know who I am card?’ with the arresting officer. Variety has the full details.
If you dig deep enough on the internet, you’ll come up with stories on Reese’s [alleged] bitchiness but one of my favourites is from Mallrats and Clerks director Kevin Smith, who hates Witherspoon so much he wants to egg her house.
When you’re on top you’re easily protected but as has been pointed out in the last few days, Reese hasn’t had a hit in a while. Are we going to be inundated with a flood of stories about her less than angelic behaviour now or will she manage to sweep all of this under the rug? It’s going to be interesting to watch how this all plays out.
And of course, any excuse to post Reese’s mugshot….why is she smiling? And not looking at the camera?
