While Reese Witherspoon’s most talked about romance is still the one she maintained with Ryan Philippe from 1999 – 2007, she has remarried since then; however, this doesn’t stop fans from wondering if she and Phillippe will ever find their way back to one another.

According to Country Living, Jim Toth and Reese Witherspoon met during a mutual friend’s party, and Toth saved Witherspoon from quite the uncomfortable conversation. Witherspoon noted to Elle,

“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.”

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth started dating shortly after Witherspoon split with Jake Gyllenhaal in 2010. They made their relationship public in March of the same year. Now, if you’re wondering how Jim Toth met Witherspoon, his job may have had something to do with that.
