Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth have announced their divorce after over a decade of marriage.

In a joint statement posted to Witherspoon’s Instagram, they shared that it was “a difficult decision”.

“It is with a great deal of care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” Witherspoon said in the statement.

“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 are extremely personal.

“We truly appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”


Witherspoon’s marriage to Toth, a fellow actor, producer and talent agent spanned just shy of 12 years.

The decision to call it quits came as the marriage had become platonic, Page Six reported.

According to Architectural Digest, the pair sold their seven bedroom, 10 bathroom English Country-style estate for $21.5 million back in 2020.

They co-parent two children together, Ava and Deacon, from Witherspoon’s first marriage to actor Ryan Phillipe, and share a son, Tennessee James Toth.

In an interview with Harper’s BAZAAR, Witherspoon said that Toth was the reason behind her starting a production company, “He said, ‘You should produce movies. You read more books than anybody I know. You should just buy some of them and turn them into films.”

Despite their divorce, Witherspoon had told the outlet they enjoyed being wed and was lucky to be with someone who supported and appreciated her.
