Wedding Wednesday: Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
Will this work? It’s so hard to say. On the one hand, Reese appears to be such a level-headed person. There are no stories about her past indiscretions, magnificent tantrums, overindulged proclivities. She’s just a normal person who happens to have chosen movie stardom as her career.
On the other hand . . .
She married Ryan Philippe when she was, what? Twenty-three years old and seven months pregnant? You guys have been reading this blog long enough to know what I think about that! And there’s something about the way she went from Ryan to Jake,* and from Jake to Jim,** without stopping to catch her breath that’s just a little concerning. In fact, it leads me to wonder if Reese is one of those folks who won’t end a relationship unless she has a new partner already picked out and waiting in wings. What will happen if she finds someone better than Jim?
On the other, other hand, Reese walked down the aisle in a pale pink dress. Always a harbinger of marital success. (Ask me how I know!)
* Separation announced October 2006, around the time that Rendition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon, was being filmed.
** Breakup with Jake November/December 2009, dating Jim publicly February 2010.
