It may have been 5 p.m. somewhere, but it was only 11:45 a.m. when Reese Witherspoon started slugging wine at a recent charity auction in Los Angeles.
“When Reese arrived, she seemed uneasy and apprehensive,” an eyewitness tells Star, adding that the A-Lister seemed to loosen up once she had a glass of vino in her hand. “As Reese kept drinking ,she started to feel more comfortable and got a lot chattier.”
In fact, by the time the auction began, the actress was already on her second glass. “She was bouncing around in her seat and entertaining her table,” the source reveals.
In April 2013, Reese and her husband, Jim Toth, were taken into custody after being pulled over by a Georgia State trooper on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. But now that embarrassing arrest seems to be just a boozy bad dream. “She wasn’t falling down drunk,” the spy explains. “But she had nearly three glasses.”
So much for walking the line!
