Witherspoon, and Toth, formerly a top talent agent who worked with the likes of Robert Downey, Jr. and Scarlett Johansson, got engaged in 2010, before marrying in a March 2011 ceremony in Ojai, California. She’s spoken occasionally about their marriage through the years, including telling Elle magazine the story of how they met in 2012: 

It happened out of the blue. This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me. He was like, [slurring, scowling, pointing finger in her face] `You don’t know me.’ And I was like, `Yeah, I know. I don’t know you!’ Jim came over and said, `Please excuse my friend. He’s just broken up with someone.’ Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That’s just kind of who he is, a really good person.

Together they have son Tennessee James, 10. Witherspoon and her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, also share two children, daughter Ava, 23, and son Deacon, 19.
