What's Really Going On With Reese Witherspoon And Jim Toth's Marriage?

In the '90s, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe made up one of Hollywood's most beloved power couples. While many fans thought the two met on the set of "Cruel Intentions," the pair actually began dating after they met on Witherspoon's 21st birthday (via Us Weekly).

The two wed in 1999 but sadly divorced seven years later. Although Witherspoon later dated Jake Gyllenhaal, she eventually remarried CAA talent agent Jim Toth in 2011 (via Women's Health). "She loves that he's not a celebrity," a source told People when the two first began seeing each other in 2010. "They've been left alone to get to know each other in a more private way."

In the 10 years since the two wed, both their careers and their family have grown after welcoming their son Tennessee James in 2012. Toth also helped encourage his wife to begin producing. "He said, 'You should produce movies. You read more books than anybody I know. You should just buy some of them and turn them into films,'" Witherspoon told Harper's Bazaar in 2016.

Rumors of Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth's divorce have swirled

Although Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth are, by all appearances, happy, rumors are flying that the two may soon be calling it quits. According to a report in OK!, Witherspoon is allegedly considering divorcing her husband (via The Blast). One source told OK! that Witherspoon and Toth have been more like business partners than a married couple since 2016. While there's no proof that the two are divorcing, the actress recently sold her production company Hello Sunshine to a private equity firm backed by Blackstone Group, Inc. for a cool $900 million, which would only serve to further her financial independence (via Variety).

In July 2021, Witherspoon posted a picture of Toth on Instagram in honor of his birthday with the caption, "Happy Birthday to my wonderful, passionate, curious husband who is obsessed with competitive gravel racing, @traegergrills BBQs, eating crazy healthy foods (like MCT oil and athletic greens) the best tattoos artists, sunset drives and sports ... Literally All of the Sports (especially Pickle Ball ... want him to explain it?) No one loves your family or friends more than you JT. So excited to celebrate you today!"

About ten days later, Witherspoon posted yet another cute picture of her and her husband on Instagram with a caption that read, "Soaking up these summer nights with my cute hubby (not pictured: 9:30pm bedtime)."

While only time will tell if Witherspoon is serious about divorcing Toth, fans are hoping this couple goes the distance.
