Reese Witherspoon is “ready” for boyfriend Jim Toth to propose


I don’t know what’s gotten into Reese Witherspoon. Like, two seconds after Reese and Jake Gyllenhaal broke up, Reese fell into the arms of Jim Toth, a talent agent with CAA. Almost immediately, Reese and Jim seemed to be totally serious, and Reese seems to have no qualms about being photographed with him, and to have him spend time with her kids. There were rumors that Reese and Jim had become “hot and heavy” very quickly and now OK! Magazine is reporting that Reese is already prepared to marry him:

Reese Witherspoon and boyfriend Jim Toth are enjoying an incredibly passionate relationship. “It’s very hot and messy, and she loves the excitement of it,” a source close to Reese, 34, tells OK!.

And while a wedding is not on the immediate horizon, Reese is already window-shopping for a ring.

“Reese micromanages everything,” says her friend. “Of course she’ll want to give some input on the ring she’ll be wearing for the rest of her life.”

But while Reese has been eyeing diamonds, friends say she is still waiting for Jim, a Hollywood agent, to take the lead.

“She isn’t going to propose to him or anything like that — she’s still a Southern girl at heart,” says the source.

“But she has definitely dropped a few hints and he’s absolutely head over heels for her.”

[From OK! Magazine]

Once again, I really don’t think Reese is a “hot and messy” kind of girl, but I’ll buy that the sex is good and she’s prepared to nail that sh-t down. And it really would be a good match, I think. Jim seems into her and he doesn’t seem at all nervous about spending time with her kids – that’s serious. Of course, the constant rumor about Reese’s breakup with Jake (besides the gay rumors) was that Jake wanted to get married and Reese didn’t. Why is she ready now? Is it the guy or the timing?

    Both. Imdb shows Toth has a client roster TO DIE FOR, and Jake was gay. Her bio clock is ticking and if she isn’t K-O’ed yet, she will be soon.

    Go REESE!

  2. Team Bethenny says:

    How many weeks have they been dating??

  3. mel says:

    wow i dont know what to say… i really liked her and Jake together and wondering what does this guy have that Jake doesnt.

  4. Riley says:

    I read somewhere that Jake was really clingy and it turned her off. It would turn me off too. I couldn’t spend the rest of life with someone who followed me around all time and always wanted to touch me and stuff. Yuck!

  5. texasmom says:

    I think she was just waiting until she met a guy whose chin matches hers.

  6. TG says:

    I’m not buying this relationship at all. It isn’t Reese’s MO. Doesn’t CAA rep Reese also? This sounds too fake. Maybe he agreed to date her to help with her image. To get people to see her as one of the girls and not some stuck up person. I adore Reese and hope she is happy. I admire confident intelligent women so hope for her sake she hasn’t stooped to the level of those other hollyweird types.

  7. N.D. says:

    honestly I don’t think she has any plans to marry this guy or any other. She’s found the way to raise kids and have her personal needs fulfilled without getting married and dealing with all the issues that go with it.

  8. Laura says:

    Jake’s not ghey, perhaps bi.

    But you know how it is with guys in that situation: Lance Armstrong was with Sheryl Crow for how many years and than broke-up with her bc he didnt want marriage and more kids but she did…. only to do it anyways with a new lady.

    It’s just different, what people feel.

  9. lucy2 says:

    She seems like a really good mom, I doubt she’d be rushing into marriage so soon.

    I think this is more of the tabloids pushing female celebs towards their next story. When they’re dating, they want them to get married. When they get married, they want them to have a baby right away. When no news has come for a while, they want them to break up. Heaven forbid they just live their lives at their own pace!

    Whatever is going on with them, I like her, and I hope it goes well for them.

  10. Leek says:

    Maybe it isn’t rushing. She didn’t rush anything with Jake and she has known this guy for a while. Maybe she is just a smart woman who knows what she wants and she fell in love. You never know what goes on inside another person’s relationship and she seems so grounded that she knows exactly what she’s doing.

  11. Katalina76 says:

    I’ll probably get crucified for this, but maybe she should stop going from one relationship to another. She divorced Ryan and was with Gyllenhal immediately. She breaks up with Gyllenhall and starts dating this guy 2 seconds later. And also, as a mother, I think it’s a little too much how quickly she starts bringing these new men around the kids.

  12. MeMyself says:

    Can there ever be a thread going without someone saying X is gay, Z is gay, etc..

    Really, do you KNOW these people?

  13. Juice in LA says:

    Sumodo! ahahahahahahahhhhaaaa! ahh good stuff.

    I just wonder whether this is the product of a slow gossip month- a Post Sandra/Tiger shixxa storm month, given the rash of seemingly inflated stories this week about people like Reese, Goopy, Halle… maybe the tabs are just struggling to find what ever on earth will glue us all to the monitor.

  14. TG says:

    @MeMyself – I hear you. I think if a guy plays a gay part in a movie many people assume he is gay and nothing the actor says or does will ever convince them otherwise. If I was being paid what these guys get paid to kiss and canoodle on TV and movies I would kiss whomever.

  15. Fire says:

    Katalina76 – I won’t crucify you but I don’t think you remember things correctly. Nothing she has done has been “immediately” or “2 seconds later.” She and Ryan split up officially in 2006 after undergoing counseling at least the year before and amid speculation that he was boffing his co-star. Reese and Jake didn’t start dating until the following year. They broke up late last year and then months later she started dating this Toth guy.

    This is her second relationship in 4 years – so, it’s not like she is jumping from bed to bed (cough*kate hudson*cough) and her kids have a new “uncle” every couple of months. She seems to take things pretty slow (like waiting at least a month to be photographed with Jim) so I really think this story is false anyway.

  16. Carrie says:

    I think this is a good match for Reese. She’s been very clear that she is a Type A, very controlled and ambitious person. She’s also an Oscar winning actress and producer, one of very few legitimately successful and powerful women in Hollywood. So who can she date? Not a normal guy, because he’d never be able to handle the disparate nature of her success.

    Like most very successful women, it can be hard to find a partner. I think both Ryan P. and Jake G. were young guys, both age and emotionally. While Jake is not covered in the douche like Ryan, he still strikes me as a “guy”, rather than a “man”.

    Jim Toth has probably the best client roster in the business…he’s not “famous”, per se, but he’s a major power player in her profession. And he’s attractive, and probably smart and driven as well. From the outside, not knowing any parties involved, it seems like the best match she’s made.

  17. Beth says:

    How could getting married be about timing when she started dating this guy a month after breaking up with Jake? As soon as a celebrity starts dating somebody new they say they are getting married or pregnant. I doubt Reese is dying to get married. If that was the case she would have married Jake. He strikes me as the one desperate to get married.

  18. sdca says:

    Um, the jake gay rumors have persisted for years…it’s not new, nor just related to posts about reece. it’s virtually public knowledge and reece and jake were a publicity stunt for both of them. has nothing to do with jake’s role as a gay cowboy. lol.

    And, i dont recall heath ledger ever plagued by gay or bi rumors. so, again, not about what roles he plays.

    the rumor/heresay/heavily laden with fact info is on a good chunk of the celebrity blog kingdom, and has been for years, like i said.

    otherwise, i agree, it DOES seem that every actor out there is rumored to be gay.

  19. Mistral says:

    Do people in L.A. really date each other for publicity? I’m not trying to be funny, I really don’t get how anyone would want to waste time with a “fake date” instead of dating to find “the one”.

  20. snowball says:

    I’m pretty sure celebs suffer from that same awful condition us mortals do, that blasted chemistry thing that makes you go all gooey inside.

    I don’t think she cares how long ago she dated Jake.

  21. eternalcanadian says:

    Slow news day? Could care less if Reese is eloping or whatever. I think Jake got off easy.

  22. TG says:

    @Mistral – yes they do just look at Jennifer Aniston’s track record of fake dating every darn co-star.

  23. TG says:

    If these jake being gay rumors are so true than how come no one has proof? The same for Tom Cruise. I don’t believe them and I don’t really care if he is. But just because bloggers want to call someone gay doesn’t make it so. LOL

  24. I should be working says:

    Listen, enough with the “Jake is gay” ish. He’s straight until he tells us otherwise, aight? Good grief, you people are flippin’ obsessed with deciding someone is gay. You ain’t met ne’er one of them in person, but b/c you read 10 blogs on the internet, you got it from good authority. STFU. Please!

  25. Lena says:

    Reese Witherspoon and her tabloid publicity fiction.

    I’m sure Jake Gyllenhaal is happy that SHOWMANCE with Witherspoon is over
    and that she uses some other man to get the press

  26. Alexis says:

    Wow…if I were Jake, this would hurt.

  27. fawzeya says:

    I AGREE w/Katalina,,,this actress states she’s an “old-fashioned Southern girl”…since when does living with a man (Ryan P) out of wedlock “old-fashioned”? she wanted children, anyone could see he was TOO young for children & wife at such a young age, but she managed to get preggers!!! Of course he cheated (he was TOO young) then she has ANOTHER man live with her then breakup…and NOW here’s ANOTHER man for her children to get to “know”!! I feel sorry for her children….

  28. Orbit says:

    The person close to Reese is her PR person. I’m beginning to think Reese is no longer interested in men.

  29. MeMyself says:

    I Should be Working…you are much more polite than I am.

    The gay rumors about EVERYONE now is ALMOST as annoying as the dating for publicity.
    Really people? I don’t think Reese would need to draw up a “contract” like that, as she is hardly D list!

  30. Fire says:

    Seriously doubt she would waste three years of her life just for a “showmance.” She certainly doesn’t need it for her career and I doubt she would play along that long because Jake asked her to. Get a grip on reality, folks!

    TG and I Should be Working – right on – let’s see the proof, people.

    scda – not sure what “virtually public knowledge” and “rumor/heresay/heavily laden with fact info” means, but let’s see the facts/proof. Reading a bunch of OPINIONS on celebrity blogs is a far cry from getting FACTUAL information. What if I said I heard you were a coke fiend ? Feels good, huh?
