The Morning Show star Reese Witherspoon has been married to husband Jim Toth since 2011. Who's that, you might ask? Unlike Reese's first husband, actor Ryan Philippe (who is also the father to her two oldest children, Ava and Deacon), Jim isn't a star of the big or small screen.
"She loves that he’s not a celebrity," a source told People back when the first started dating in 2010."They’ve been left alone to get to know each other in a more private way."
Even so, Reese gave a li'l insight into her 'ship when she posted a super sweet photo of Jim on Valentine’s Day 2021. "Love my Valentine ❤️ #11years of love & laughter," she captioned the post.
And in honor of this year’s Golden Globes, she also posted a throwback snap last weekend of the couple dressed up for last year’s ceremony. "Does anybody else look through old photos and think, 'remember when we had places to go and friends to see'? I miss playing dress up with this crew! Taken a year ago during awards season ⭐️💫🥂," she captioned the photo.
But just because he's not famous, that doesn't mean Jim's not still incredibly influential in Hollywood. Here's everything you need to know about Reese Witherspoon's husband, Jim Toth.
Reese met Jim at a mutual friend's party.
In 2012, Reese told Elle that she met Jim at a friend's party, when a very drunk man got in her face. Jim swooped in and saved the day. "It happened out of the blue," she said. "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."
For many years, Jim worked as a talent agent (but not for Reese).
In 2010, Jim Toth became a co-head of motion picture talent department at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), which reps a host of Hollywood's top talent. He spent 23 years at the agency, and personally represented stars including Matthew McConaughey, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jamie Foxx, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Salma Hayek, Zooey Deschanel and Neil Patrick Harris, per Deadline.
Jim and Reese got engaged after less than a year of dating.
They first went public in February 2010, and by December 2010, they were engaged, according to People. They got married at Reese's ranch in Ojai in 2011, and her children Ava and Deacon participated in the wedding. Reese and Jim's son Tennessee James Toth was born in 2012.
Jim's partially responsible for all those Quibi ads you're seeing.
In 2019, Jim left his longtime role at Creative Artists Agency for ex-Disney chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg's startup Quibi, which is launching next month and will produce and stream TV shows made up of episodes of 10 minutes or less. At Quibi, he's Head of Content Acquisition and Talent, which means he likely plays a role in motivating stars like Sophie Turner, Chance the Rapper, and Chrissy Teigen to create shows for the platform.
Jim encouraged Reese to start producing movies.
In 2016, Reese told Harper's BAZAAR that her husband played an important role in her decision to start a production company. "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,'" she explained. Flash forward to today, and Hello Sunshine is making series waves in Tinseltown.
She and Jim bought an amazing home in Brentwood, California in early 2020.
The couple purchased a $16 million dollar English Country–style house last March, according to Architectural Digest. It's just over 9,500 square feet with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Jim is a "wonderful" father, according to Reese.
The Little Fires Everywhere star didn’t miss an opportunity to show her love and appreciation for Jim on Father’s Day last year. She shared a cuddly photo of Jim with their son, Tennessee.
"Happy Father’s Day to this wonderful dad and to all the Fathers who are raising incredible, thoughtful, compassionate kids! I am celebrating you ALL, ✨❤️,"she captioned the post.
Jim is a Leo—who just turned 50.
On July 27, 2020, Reese shared a sweet tribute to Jim for his 50th birthday, calling out his love of triathlon training and family. "Happy Birthday to my amazing hubby, Jim!! 💫 Everything you do, you put in 1000 %! Whether he’s training for a triathlon, giving back to his community, supporting his friends, or loving his family, he gives his whole heart to so many people everyday! I ❤️ you so much, JT! #youmake50lookgood," she wrote.
Reese and Jim love taking walks with their dogs.
In February 2021, the couple were spotted walking two of their dogs, French bulldog Minnie, and labrador retriever Hank, per Just Jared.
Reese has posted tons of photos of the family’s pups, which also include two more dogs, Lou and Major.
