Witherspoon Goes Blonde Again After Brunette Fling

Reese Witherspoon goes blonde may not seem like a change, but the star had a blink and you’ll miss it flirtation with darker locks this spring.

As Witherspoon goes blonde again, the actress looks a bit more Reese-like following her month of uncharacteristic setbacks.

Witherspoon’s darker locks also marked a lot of her appearances post-arrest, so the change may help distance her from the drama.

Earlier this month, Reese appeared as a brunette in several interviews to explain her transgression — during which she was filmed mouthing off to a cop as hubby Jim Toth was arrested for DUI.

Before Witherspoon went blonde, she said of her panic and the bad decisions which resulted:

“I saw [an Atlanta cop] arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I told him I was pregnant. I’m not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things.”

Reese spoke honestly of the lead up to the arrests, owning up to the situation:

“We went out to dinner in Atlanta and we had one too many glasses of wine. We thought we were fine to drive and we absolutely were not … We know better and we shouldn’t have done that … I was so disrespectful to [the cop in the video.] I have police officers in my family. I work with police officers every day. I know better. It’s just unacceptable.”

She later said:

“We have to say when you make a mistake you take responsibility and we are taking responsibility and doing everything in our power to make it right.”

As Witherspoon goes blonde, it seems the star’s possibly image tarnishing meltdown has actually passed over for good — and Reese seems to have handled the messy arrest and damning video with as much grace and aplomb as anyone can be expected to muster during such an unfortunate circumstance.
