Reese gets messy

The star takes a tum­ble – and her im­age could be a bit dented

NW - - The 2019 Grammy Awards -

Poor Reese With­er­spoon is lick­ing her wounds af­ter suf­fer­ing an em­bar­rass­ing stum­ble on her way out of Jen­nifer Anis­ton’s big birth­day bash.

The ac­tress, 42, was walk­ing down some stairs out­side Bev­erly Hills’ Sun­set Tower Ho­tel in full view of pho­tog­ra­phers when she col­lapsed like a ton of bricks, prompt­ing a mem­ber of the ho­tel staff to rush to her aid. She was up on her feet again af­ter a mo­ment – but the dam­age to her ego will take a lot longer to heal than a twisted an­kle!

“Pub­licly she’ll prob­a­bly laugh it off and say she was just tired,” sighs an in­sider. “But there’s no doubt­ing she’s hugely em­bar­rassed by this, be­cause she’ll know ev­ery­one will be putting two and two to­gether and as­sum­ing she was blitzed.”

Reese is cel­e­brated by pals as be­ing the life of the party, but that can prompt her to go large on a big night out.

“When she goes out with [her girl­friends], she likes to get a lit­tle wild,” says the source. “She’s a su­per fun per­son to have at par­ties, and it’s not un­usual for her to be the last one on the dance floor. Jen’s party was filled with a ton of A-lis­ters,

and Reese was far from the only one who ap­peared to have a few too many – but she’ll def­i­nitely be red-faced over the fact that her fall was caught on cam­era!”

A lot of spec­ta­tors are won­der­ing where her hus­band Jim Toth, 49, was, as he was def­i­nitely in at­ten­dance at the event ear­lier in the night, and it’s highly un­usual for them to leave a party sep­a­rately.

“There are a lot of eye­brows be­ing raised over the fact that Jim left an hour or two be­fore she did,” shares the spy. “They must have had a tough night.”

With­out ih h her man present, maybe Reese was able to cut loose just that lit­tle bit more than is good for her! And it’s nice she had a good time – be­cause the af­ter­math can’t have been much fun!

“You can bet that Reese will in­sist she finds this whole thing hi­lar­i­ous,” tells the in­for­mant. “But be­hind closed doors, she’s the kind of per­son who is pretty con­scious of how other peo­ple see her, and is go­ing to want to try and pro­tect her ‘Amer­ica’s sweet­heart’ im­age.” n
