Reese Witherspoon to Red: My Brain is Gone!

by at . Comments

Reese Witherspoon is featured in the latest issue of Red.

And while the actress spoke to the magazine prior to her surprising arrest for disorderly conduct this month, at least one excerpt from the Q&A may shed some light on what the Oscar winner was thinking during the unfortunate incident.

Or not thinking, we should say.

"Ever since I had the baby, I can't remember anything. Serious, this child stole my brain," Witherspoon says of son Tennessee, who she and Jim Toth welcomed in October.

"I'm losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people," she continues. "But you can't keep up with everything. I've got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby."

The actress (humorously) adds that keeping track of her children is "like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times . . .'Where is Ava? She's okay. Good. Where is Deacon? He's okay. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he okay? Yes. Great. Back to Ava…' It doesn't stop."

So it's understandable why new parents would want to down a few drinks during a night out.

But less understandable why her husband would then get behind the wheel and why she would disobey police orders.

Ironically, Reese also touches on her reputation as America's Sweetheart, telling the publication:

"People definitely hug me a lot, and hand me their babies. But it's better than people throwing stuff at me, right? I'm always met with smiles."

It will be interesting to see if that continues to be the case.
