Reese Witherspoon said "I do," for a second time, this past March to Jim Toth but underwent some struggles before the wedding. Not only did the actress go through an "awful" divorce from Ryan Phillippe, but also she actually met Jim after he had to rescue her at a bar!
Reese opens up in the new issue of Elle magazine on the collapse of her first marriage to Ryan and how she fell in love with Jim.
The How Do You Know star admits that her divorce from Ryan, the father of her two children, was "awful."
"I have to be honest with you: I'm a totally different person," she explained to Elle (via The Daily Mail). "I don't think I realized how little I was living. I was so consumed with trying to hold things together."
But Jim came to her rescue! The agent had to save Reese from one of his drunken friends at a bar.
"This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me," the actress explained to Elle.
"Jim came over and said, 'Please excuse my friend. He's just broken up with someone,' " Reese recalled. "And I remember thinking, his friend is such an a**, what a jerk. And that Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation."
And it seems she also thought Jim would make a really good husband!
