Illustration for article titled Reese Witherspoons Classy as Hell Apology for That Drunk Driving Mess

This morning on GMA, Reese Witherspoon did her first sit-down interview since being arrested for disorderly conduct two weeks ago.

“I saw [the cop] arresting my husband and I literally panicked,” Reese told George Stephanopoulos. “I told him I was pregnant. I’m not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things.”

And: “I was so disrespectful to him… I have police officers in my family. I work with police officers every day. I know better. It’s just unacceptable.” Well done! Video here.

You know, I appreciate this kind of apology, and it seems sincere. I think too often we're unwilling to forgive people because we forget that they can't literally undo what they said or did. But they can't. So really the only thing we can ask of people to is to make amends, and that can take numerous different forms, but I think a sincere, no-excuses, no "buts" apology is always one of those steps.
