Michael Buble has defended Reese Witherspoon following her arrest, saying "everyone makes mistakes".

The Canadian crooner, who duetted with the Oscar-winning actress, said he "adores" her and that she handled her run-in with the law very well.

"Everyone makes mistakes. It's just a matter of, really, how you come back from them," he told ET Canada, during a discussion in Los Angeles.

"I thought that she just showed graciousness and class and great dignity. I hope that when I make mistakes, I come back the same way... I'm sure she wishes she could go back, but the truth is, she's got a beautiful family and beautiful kids, and I think that's what's most important for her."

Reese was arrested for disorderly conduct when she allegedly drunkenly refused to stay in the car while her husband Jim Toth was given a field sobriety test - she later confessed she was "deeply embarrassed" in a statement.

Michael - who teamed up with Reese to record the Frank and Nancy Sinatra duet, Something Stupid, for his new album To Be Loved - said how she dealt with the incident reaffirmed his perception of her as "a kind, humble, down-to-earth, real girl."

The singer, who is expecting a son with wife Luisana, said he hopes his child will be happy.

"I just know right now that I pray that he's healthy and that my wife is healthy. I'm just going to try to be a good dad like my dad was and like his dad was... If he turns out to be a great, macho hockey player or a gay ballet dancer, I'll be just as happy as long as my kid is happy," he said.
