Reese Witherspoon and Her Husband Jim Toth Have Decided to Separate.
Before announcing their divorce in March 2023, the couple had been married for more than a decade.
“We have some personal announcements to make… We have made the painful choice to divorce after a great lot of thought and deliberation “They said in an Instagram-posted joint statement.
“We are moving forward with great love, generosity, and mutual respect for everything we have accomplished together after so many amazing years together.”
They further stated, “As we traverse this new chapter, our son and our entire family are our top priorities. These issues are seldom simple and are highly personal. We appreciate everyone’s consideration for the privacy of our family at this time.”
A source informed People that “They truly are the greatest of friends, and this choice is so amicable. They are extremely committed to co-parenting. They are committed to their entire family and to making this transition as easy as possible for all parties.”
Toth, who is not a Hollywood celebrity, moves in the same circles as Witherspoon and, according to Heavy, represents a number of A-list actors, including Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConaughey.

He is a prominent talent agent.
On CAA’s official website, Toth is the co-head of the motion picture talent department of Creative Artists Agency, a major company in film packaging and distribution arrangements.
According to reports, Witherspoon was always drawn to the fact that Toth did not come from the same circle of prominence.
In 2010, a source told People, “She appreciates that he is not a celebrity.” They were left alone to get to know each other in a more intimate setting.
He first encountered Witherspoon at a party.
Toth first met Witherspoon at a house party, where he saved her from an extremely drunk man — one of Toth’s pals — according to a 2012 interview with ELLE.
“That occurred unexpectedly,” Witherspoon recalled. “This extremely intoxicated man was sexually harassing me while acting like a fool and cursing at me. He was like, “You don’t know me” [slurring, scowling, pointing finger in her face]. And I responded, ‘Yes, I understand. I don’t recognize you!”
At this point, Toth swooped in.
“James approached and apologized to his friend. He had just ended a relationship,’ “The woman continued. “James was a very good buddy, rescuing him from that predicament. This is simply who he is, a very decent person.”
Within less than a year of dating, he proposed to Witherspoon.
Toth proposed to Witherspoon in December 2010, around ten months after the couple’s relationship was initially confirmed.
At the time, the couple’s representative told Us Weekly, “They are really thrilled.”
Some months later, in March 2011, they got married on their private ranch in California. Daughter Ava Phillippe served as the maid of honor, and son Deacon Phillippe was the ring bearer, both of whom are Witherspoon’s children from her previous marriage to Ryan Phillippe.
During the wedding, the actress wore a couture Monique Lhuillier gown.
He is the father of Witherspoon’s son.
In September 2012, Toth and Witherspoon welcomed their first and only child, a son named Tennessee James Toth.
According to the actress, Toth has been a father figure and supportive, fun-loving father to all of Witherspoon’s children.
In 2016, she told People, “He’s incredibly patient and humorous with children.” He encourages kids to find humor in life.
