We're just about ready to let Reese Witherspoon off the hook for her upsetting arrest two weeks ago. She finally (and bravely!) spoke out this morning on Good Morning America about what she called "one of those nights."

Watch: Reese does damage control with her children after her arrest.

She explained, "We went out to a restaurant in Atlanta, and we had one too many glasses of wine. We thought we were fine to drive, and we were absolutely not, and we are so sorry and just so embarrassed."

Watch: See what co-star Matthew McConaughey had to say about Reese's arrest!

She was arrested for disorderly conduct, while her husband Jim Toth received a charge for driving under the influence and failure to maintain a lane. She said that the hardest part of the ordeal was telling her children. "When you make a mistake, you take responsibility, and we are taking responsibility, and we are doing everything within our power to make it right," said the star, who will always be Elle Woods in our hearts.

OK! News: Jim Toth returns to work after his arrest for DUI.
