After a certain incident recently left Reese Witherspoon on the wrong side of a law enforcement official, the Avon poster girl has admitted she has also irked her nearest and dearest – all because of baby brain.

The Walk The Line star, mother to 13-year-old Ava, 9-year-old Deacon and baby son Tennessee, told Red magazine about her new found forgetfulness, saying, “Ever since I had the baby, I can’t remember anything. Serious, this child stole my brain!”

"I’m losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people,” she continued, “but you can’t keep up with everything. I’ve got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby.”

Reese, who stars alongside fellow southerner Matthew McConaughey in upcoming film, Mud, also confessed that her children dominate her every thought, saying, “It’s like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times: ‘Where is Ava? She’s okay. Good. Where is Deacon? He’s okay. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he okay? Yes. Great. Back to Ava...’ It doesn’t stop.'

This could explain why reportedly pulled the old "Do you know my name?" defence during her recent legal altercation... she may just have genuinely forgotten!
