When Reese Witherspoon got holier-than-thou with a cop recently, I kind of breathed a sigh of relief. It made her seem less plastic. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not condoning her behavior, but it’s kind of similar to that feeling you might get when your picture-perfect bestie gets a giant zit. It’s not like hoping she accidentally gets pregnant or like, throwing a party if she gain a few LBs, but it’s nice to know that you’re not the only one who has bad days, you know?

So anyways, Reese Witherspoon finally made a public apology this morning on GMA for name-dropping herself when her hubby got pulled over for a DUI and she got arrested for disorderly conduct. And guess what? It was totally classy and honest. Shocker.

Reese also goes on to talk about how she spoke about the incident to her kids and admits that she said a lot of “crazy” things in her sheer state of panic (which I think means drunk) — Like telling the officer she was pregnant, which she’s not (watch the full video here). Say what you will, but I think we’ve all been there to some degree. I know I have. I once told a dude at a bar that I was married with two kids, lived in Vermont and hosted a show about birds on the local radio station, where I was also a DJ. None of those things are true and that was mostly out of boredom, but you know what I mean.
