Actress Reese Witherspoon and talent agent Jim Toth are divorcing after months of speculation in the industry, citing a mutual decision made with care, consideration, and respect for their child and family.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, who tied the knot in March 2011, have decided to end their marriage, according to an Instagram post by the “Legally Blonde” actress on Friday. While the news may have come as a surprise to some, sources say that it has been a poorly kept secret in Hollywood for months. The impending split had reportedly been the buzz around the punch bowl at agency holiday parties last year, with insiders expecting an announcement at any moment.
Witherspoon, 47, wrote that they had made “the difficult decision to divorce” and that they were “moving forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect.” She acknowledged that it was a personal matter and appealed to people’s respect for their privacy. Witherspoon and Toth, a top executive at the CAA agency, share one child, 10-year-old Tennessee, while the actress has two older children, Ava and Deacon, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.
The couple’s decision to end their marriage seems to be a result of growing apart. According to Page Six, their relationship had become platonic. Witherspoon’s statement, however, emphasized that Tennessee and their “entire family” would be their “biggest priority” as they navigate the next chapter in their lives.
Representatives for Witherspoon and Toth declined to comment on the matter. While the couple may have done their best to keep their personal lives private, the news of their split has no doubt attracted attention from fans and tabloids alike. As they each take steps to begin a new phase of their lives, their fans will undoubtedly wish them both the best.
