TV insiders informed the Washington Post that she had cancelled her slated appearance on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon', as well as pulling out of a recording of an interview due to air on Wednesday's 'Good Morning America' to promote her new film 'Mud'.

However, Reese did appear on the red carpet of the film's screening at The Museum of Modern Art in New York on Sunday, but did not talk to reporters present.

Ahead of the event, she issued a statement saying that she was "deeply embarrassed" about her arrest, after police reported she had used the line "Do you know my name?" during the altercation.

"I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said," she said.

"It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse."
