I’m not that into following celebrities or their love lives. However, it is always interesting to see who is dating whom in Hollywood’s social arena. The latest buzz worthy news surrounds the fraternizing between golden girl Reese Witherspoon and talent agent Jim Toth.
From a young age, Witherspoon lit up the screen in movies like The Man in the Moon. In looking at her movie history on netflix.com, she had some leads in movies during the 1990s like Fear, Pleasantville and Election. The Legally Blonde movies and Sweet Home Alabama in the early 2000s made her into America’s blonde sweetheart. However, it was her excellent performance in Walk the Line with costar Joaquin Phoenix that won her an Oscar. The last movie I saw her in was Four Christmases, a better than expected romantic comedy.
Personally, she married fairly young, at 23. According to a Marriage Profile on about.com, her marriage to Ryan Phillippe only lasted from June 5, 1999 to November of 2006 when Reese filed for divorce. The divorce was final in June of 2008. Witherspoon and Phillippe have two children, Ava and Deacon. After her divorce, Witherspoon was involved with Jake Gyllenhaal. However, the couple spilt in 2009.
Until linked to Witherspoon, I had never heard of Jim Toth. He works for the talent agency, Creative Artists Agency that represents Witherspoon. According to wikipedia.com, this Los Angeles based agency “represents A-list and emerging stars in movies, television, music, and sports.” As stated by the people.com article, Is Reese Dating again? he is a “ladies man.” I would imagine so since he is both handsome and probably successful too.
Rumor has it that the two were seen at a Santa Monica Restaurant, Locanda Portofino. Even though the People.com article claims that Reese was “flirtatious” with Roth, it’s hard to say if there really is anything going on. After all, every time you go out to dinner with someone does it mean that you are romantically involved? Are you not allowed to have a good time with someone whom you aren’t attracted to? When parting many people hug and kiss their friends on the cheek.
Thus, since Reese just ended a relationship and appears very focused on her children, I don’t think this so called relationship with Jim Toth will last. The real question is who will be Reese’s next love interest? Or perhaps will she simply fly solo for a while?
