The demure Southern belle made a serious misstep this past weekend, getting arrested for disorderly conduct on early Friday as her husband Jim Toth was booked for a DUI. When the officer approached them, Witherspoon stated, "Do you know my name?" and "You're about to find out who I am ... You are going to be on national news." She also stated that she was a "US citizen" and was "allowed to stand on American ground." Um, what?

Being a celebrity certainly has its perks, but sometimes, famous folks get treated just like the rest of us. Case in point: Reese Witherspoon chose to whip out the celebrity card, allegedly stating the ultimately cocky line: "Do you know my name?" and "You're about to find out who I am" over the weekend, when her husband Jim Toth was booked for a DUI over the weekend (she was arrested for disorderly conduct.) As it were, it didn't really matter who she was, as the police officer went right ahead and arrested them.
Reese isn't the first famous person to spewed this entitled line, as celebrities have been pulling the "do you know who I am?!" card since, well, always. It's usually used when they're in a compromising situation-be it getting kicked out of a nightclub or being denied a discount on pricey attire. Everyone from Tara Reid to R&B diva Diana Ross have been guilty when it comes to namedropping their own names in order to nab some special treatment.
In light of incidents like these popping up in recent headlines, we decided to compile the most memorable (or completely entitled, whichever) "Don't you know who I am?!" moments.
