The late night hosts take aim at Witherspoon's disorderly conduct incident
Reese Witherspoon hasn't heard the end of her disorderly conduct arrest on Friday, alongside husband Jim Toth, who was booked for DUI. As if the charges and mug shot were not enough, now Witherspoon has to endure a little late-night ribbing.
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was on vacation last week. But the program returned Monday night and immediately offered sympathies to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and thanked the first responders.
Leno then jumped right into the Witherspoon jokes, saying, "In other news, we were gonna have Reese Witherspoon on the show tonight, but she got booked elsewhere." Leno followed up with a few more good ones, including a solid quip about how Witherspoon used her one phone call. But he tells it better than me, take a look at the video below.
Surprisingly, Jimmy Fallon stayed out of it. Witherspoon was actually set to appear on his "Late Night" show this week to promote her new indie film, "Mud" but she cancelled following the arrest.
Not suprising, Jimmy Kimmel didn't resist the opportunity to take a couple shots at Witherspoon as well: "The police report says she asked the cop 'Do you know my name? You're about to find out who I am.' Does that ever work? 'Do you know who I am?' is second only to 'Do you know who my father is?' It's a bad question because the answer is either 'no' — which is embarrassing — or 'yes, and you're going to jail.'"
