Reese Witherspoon Pulls a Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan would regard this as little league.

Two things:
1) I would imagine that one of the perks of being a movie star is that if I were planning on spending a night drinking, I could afford to hire a driver.

2) The original transcript has the officer referring to Ms. Witherspoon as "Mrs. Witherspoon." She's not Mrs. Witherspoon unless she's married to someone whose last name is Witherspoon.

Hey, Reese--

Entitled much?

This is really more of a "Gwyneth Paltrow" than a "Lindsay Lohan."

@3 Spot on. She could afford to hire a driver & car. Indeed, her arrogance is what irritated me. Movie star/celebrity privileged BS. Thankfully no one was hurt.
7
I like a country where being "somebody" doesn't get a pass on awful behaviour.

@6 i was hurt by having to hear about this. this was not a victim less crime

She should of sucked the cops dick then declared herself "legally blonde" from the cum stains.

June Cash? No. no. that's not it. Mrs. Bateman? No... Shit, I know this. Miss Woods?

Vanity fair.

Well, she was right about the "You're about to find out who I am ... You are going to be on national news" part.

I do like the "one drink too many" part. Um, no, sounds like several drinks too many dear.

Being caught driving a Ford is pretty low brow
14
When you're that petite, one drink is too many.
16
To be fair, she was drunk.

@5: It's kind of a Zsa Zsa Gabor. Reese is less WTF, but almost as arrogant. I forget if Zsa Zsa was drunk or not though.
18
@8 Indeed. It stung:)

Bad move. Being famous doesn't make one immune to the dangers of getting behind a wheel while drunk. What if her hubby had gotten in an accident, and hurt himself or someone else? "Do you know who I am" would have been the least of her worries.

Ms Cute - Perhaps it's French. After Chris Evert (Lloyd)'s first divorce, the French Open just dropped the Lloyd and called her Madame Evert. Chris may have opened the floodgates to choice at Wimbledon, as lately it seems as if the married women are all over the map.

Now that I think of it, I wonder whom she'll marry next, if anyone. Greg Norman certainly didn't last long.

@20 You're right.

Madame does means Mrs, but it's also a polite way to refer to any adult female. It's pretty strange to be called Mademoiselle (Miss) when you're old enough to be a mother, since it conveys the meaning of "young unmarried woman".

Some men think it's cute to call 40-something omen Miss, regardless of their marital status. Some women like it, they feel younger that way, more desirable. Some women hate it, on the basis that whether a woman is or isn't married should not be an issue upon which men should forcibly delve, during greetings. Males are called Mr whether they're married or not, so why should it be different for females ? We have as much value whether we're married or not.

So yes, in French you can be called Mrs followed by your birth name, it's not odd at all.

@20, 21: Fair enough, if the reporting was being done in French, and was translated, but this is from an American publication (Variety): http://variety.com/2013/biz/news/reese-w…

Mme. Sissoucat, I understand that in French, there are only the two honorifics, Mademoiselle and Madame, but in English we have Ms., which was designed specifically as a response to the idea that a woman's marital status should be immaterial in public address.

I know people who refuse to use Ms. and decide, even when the woman in question has stated that this is the honorific she prefers, to designate their own title. I have relatives who insisted on using Mrs. when addressing mail to me, despite the fact that I had told them I was "Ms.." not "Mrs." and despite the fact that I hadn't changed my name upon getting married, so that "Mrs. My Maiden Name" was just plain wrong.

In the South it's correct to be Miss First Name your whole life, and a preferred title to Aunt for many women who only want to use that with relatives, not friends' children.
