(Newser) – This probably wasn't the line Reese Witherspoon wanted to be printed a week after her boozy "I'm a US citizen!" breakdown: In an interview with Britain's Red magazine picked up by the Daily Mail, the 37-year-old says new baby Tennessee "stole my brain." The actress is referring to her now-absent memory, not the part of her noggin dedicated to behaving properly in the presence of police. Some context:

"Ever since I had the baby, I can't remember anything. ... I'm losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. ... It’s like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times [puts on robotic voice]: 'Where is Ava? She's OK. Good. Where is Deacon? He's OK. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he OK? Yes. Great. Back to Ava...' It doesn’t stop." (Click to read about the brouhaha surrounding her mugshot.)
