Reese Witherspoon Laughs as Chelsea Handler Teases Her About Drunken Arrest
Reese Witherspoon laughed at Chelsea Handler's reference to her disorderly conduct arrest when they attended Elle's Women in Hollywood event on Monday night, October 21. As she presented an award, Handler poked fun at Witherspoon's April ordeal.
"Personally, as a true friend, my favorite project of hers was an overlooked short film that she made earlier this year. She plays a very inebriated housewife defending her inebriated husband," Handler said, as quoted by E! News.
The "This Means War" actress and her husband Jim Toth reportedly laughed at Handler's reference to the incident. "And if you haven't seen it, you can go on YouTube," Handler added.
In addition, Handler mentioned the actress' popular comedy work "Legally Blonde". "I've seen her naked and I can tell you, she was miscast," Handler said. "A more appropriate title would have been 'Legally Bald'," she told the audience members, causing them to howl in laughter.
"I don't know if I should thank you for that. Jesus!" Witherspoon responded. "Any party gets that much better when Chelsea Handler shows up," she added. Besides Witherspoon, other honorees such as Shailene Woodley, Melissa McCarthy, Naomie Harris, Marion Cotillard, Eva Marie Saint and director Nancy Meyers attended the event, which was held at the Four Season Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Witherspoon and Toth's car was pulled over by a police officer back in April after he apparently showed signs that he was intoxicated. While the talent agent was being inspected, Witherspoon was told to stay in the car but she repeatedly disobeyed the instruction. The police later arrested the Oscar-winning actress for disorderly conduct while Toth was arrested for DUI.
