Reese Witherspoon's Tiny Skirt Flies Up in Wind

reese witherspoon has skirt trouble

Actress Reese Witherspoon was rocking an adorable red and white print skirt on Tuesday while shopping on a breezy afternoon in Hollywood, causing her to flash her backside.

The wardrobe malfunction was captured by several photographers who were dogging the 37-year-old actress as she walked along a sidewalk.

Witherspoon made headlines for a different reason in mid-April when she and her husband Jim Toth were arrested in Atlanta.  He picked up a DUI and she was crucified by the press for landing in the slammer on a charge of disorderly conduct.

The timing couldn't have been worse for the 'Walk the Line' celebrity, who skipped several premiere events for her latest film 'Mud' before coming out with an apologetic statement:

"I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said.  It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse.  I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job.  I'm very sorry for my behavior."
