Witherspoon admitted in the interview to saying a number of crazy things, including the now infamous lines, "Do you know my name?" and "You're about to find out who I am."

The regretful actress explained: "I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked... I told him I was pregnant. I'm not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things."

Witherspoon and her husband, CAA talent agent Jim Toth, were pulled over in a 2013 Ford Focus, after a night out to dinner in Atlanta that she said included one too many glasses of wine. After a field sobriety test, Toth was arrested for driving under the influence and failure to maintain the lane. Witherspoon, warned twice by police for attempting to get out of the car, was arrested for disorderly conduct.
