Actress and talent agent announce separation after 10 years of marriage
Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth said they have taken the “difficult decision” to divorce after more than 10 years of marriage.
Legally Blonde actress Witherspoon, 47, has been married to talent agent Toth, 52, since 2011 before she announced that they are splitting on Friday.
“It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce.
“We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and are moving forward with deep love, kindness, and mutual respect for everything we have created together.
“Our biggest priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter. These matters are never easy and extremely personal.
“We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time. Reese and Jim.”
The couple share one child together, Tennessee James Toth, born in 2012.
Witherspoon also has a daughter, Ava, and son, Deacon, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, who she starred with in the 1999 romantic drama Cruel Intentions, before they split in 2006.
The actress won an Oscar, Bafta and Golden Globe for playing Johnny Cash’s wife, the singer June Carter, in Walk The Line opposite Joaquin Phoenix.
She is also known for her roles in Big Little Lies opposite Nicole Kidman and The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston.
Witherspoon recently starred in the Netflix romantic comedy about house-swapping, Your Place Or Mine, alongside Two And A Half Men star Ashton Kutcher.
