As IF Reese Witherspoon
Or maybe it’s As IF everyone else.
Here’s Reese Witherspoon leaving Atlanta on Saturday with husband Jim Toth and an Atlanta PD baseball cap. Because she’s totally best friends with them now, after DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM-ing them two weeks ago. And that’s not even the most embarrassingly obvious part of this photo opportunity.
Oh look, paparazzi, you’re welcome to a clean shot of baby Tennessee’s face!
That sh-t doesn’t still work, does it?
Well, actually, it does.
As I wrote last week -- click here for a refresher -- that’s all it takes. A reminder that she’s a mother and Sweet Home Alabama and apparently...she hasn’t been this likeable in years...?
The Daily Beast (thanks Gen!) compiled the media commentary that resulted from Reese’s arrest video release last week and it turns out, since she’s “just like us”, this whole incident has made her super popular and interesting again. And could lead to a career resurgence.
So... Gwyneth Paltrow works out too much and Anne Hathaway breathes too much, but they still keep it legal, and Reese Witherspoon is an accessory to drinking and driving AND punks off a cop by pulling the celebrity card, and somehow this is not only less hateful but actually ... appealing?
Well that tells us everything about who we are, doesn’t it?
By the way, some of you were wondering about the third person in the car the night that Reese was pulled over. It was her best friend Shannon Rotenberg, wife of producer Michael Rotenberg. She and several other “A List Hollywood Wives” were profiled last year in The Hollywood Reporter. Rotenberg is the one on the far left, a total sorority sister.
