Reese Witherspoon Surprised She Found Herself a Husband

Monday, April 4, 2011

Reese WitherspoonREESE Witherspoon was “surprised” Jim Toth wanted to be with her.

The Water for Elephants actress — who split from first husband Ryan Phillippe in 2006 after seven years of marriage — tied the knot with the Hollywood agent last week but admits she never expected to find love again because she has too many “quirks”.

“You’re surprised somebody wants to be with you because, boy, I’ve got a lot of quirks and wrinkles,” Reese said.

However, the 35-year-old beauty believes her marriage to Cruel Intentions costar Ryan — with whom she has children Ava, 11, and seven-year-old Deacon — helped her “learn” a lot about relationships and particularly communication with a significant other.

“We were ridiculously young. I learned a lot, thought,” she said.

“It was a good opportunity for me to really find out what it means to be a partner and to be in a marriage, and it’s not anything I thought it was.

“You can’t say, ‘I don’t want to talk about that.’ You just can’t. You’ve got to talk about it all.”

Reese — who won an Oscar for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line in 2005 — also admitted she finds it hard to be away from her children.

“There’s this fallacy that we can have it all. I get it often, ‘Oh, you have it all,’ and I don’t,” she said.

“It’s hard. And there are times I take two years off and I don’t work. And there are times I go to work and I feel sick because I can’t see my kids for five days.

“And it’s real hard to go. Work is important to me. The kids are important to me. My relationship’s important to me. But all three can’t be functioning at 100 per cent at all times.”

    What a horrible thing to say – to the above (and only) poster (at this time). She is a beautiful woman and you have no idea what you are talking about. If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
