POLL: Will Witherspoon’s Career Be Affected by Arrest?

Reese Witherspoon Arrested

As first reported by Variety, Reese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct early Friday morning in Atlanta. According to the police report, Witherspoon was handcuffed after disobeying repeated instruction from the arresting officer, with whom she verbally sparred, following the DUI arrest of her husband-agent Jim Toth. Which leads us to ask–will the Oscar-winning actress’ career take a hit following her arrest?

    this sort of things happens to hundreds of people everyday… it’s not news, it’s cheap tabloid controversy… the hypocrisy is so thick you could cut it with a knife… go to any big party and there’s booze everywhere, waiters change your glass as soon as it’s empty… and then you have two hundred couples drive away… so Reese wasn’t lucky that night, big ****ing deal… next week it’ll be somebody else… pay the fine and move on.

      this NEWS is not cheap tabloid controversy. REESE is a movie star, until what just happened. you say pay the fine and move on. that type of thinking is not realistic. when REESE won the academy award, she wanted the good girl image. she had it, until she exposed her true colors. I think she should admit, she was trying to hard to be someone she wasn’t. I would accept those words. anyone can say i’m sorry, 10x but their new character needs to be truthful.

    I’m glad it happened, I never liked her anyway with her ugly ass -nose -in- the –air attitude, I hope she falls flat on her face!!

    • mnatividadc says:

      OK, let’s hold on a split second… no one should be glad that happened to REESE and her husband. that’s a form of JEALOUSLY. YOU need not like REESE, yet being glad it happened, doesn’t cut it. that’s simply mean to the bone. right, she has had her pretty nose attitude for too long. pls chill out, reese doesn’t need to fall flat on her face. the damage is done. reese feels bad enough for embarrassing her husband, her family, and her fans. i never was a fan.

      sounds like a personal vendetta …

    Her career was already in danger. Last few years her movies weren’t good.

    • mnatividadc says:

      although, i agree her career needed a hit movie, is not a valid reason to bring that issue into the picture. that’s her career hanging on. no need to link it to BEING DRUNK. so what, if her last few movies weren’t over 2 or 3 stars. reese has been trying to do her best. too much on her plate. first marriage and children, 2nd marriage and another child.

      why do movie stars drive drunk? does anyone know?…

  4. yo yo yo says:

    frankly…does she have a career anymore…i havent seen a performance out of her since walk the line…

    • mnatividadc says:

      yes she does! her career will need to rebound and if she tries to reinvent herself, give her a chance. the problem is, it will take a long time because the completion is higher than ever. i think she should stop making movies for at least 6 months and focus and her character and her children’s emotional needs for now. everybody’s needs a break. maybe, this had to happen to her, so she could realize /do you know who i am/ is a pathetic thing to say. it’s utterly narcissistic, and reese cannot take it back. it’s part of her history. life is up and down for everyone. i think she is too in love with herself. come on, someone could have been killed in the walkway.
