Reese Witherspoon realised Jim Toth was The One when she didn't have to think before accepting his marriage proposal.
Reese Witherspoon "didn't have to think" before accepting Jim Toth's marriage proposal.
The 'Water for Elephants' actress - who married the Hollywood agent last month - was absolutely certain she wants to spend the rest of her life with Jim and didn't hesitate in agreeing to get engaged.
She said: "I knew he was The One all right. A clue was when he asked me to marry him and I said yes right away. Didn't have to think about it. It just feels like the right thing at the right time in my life."
Reese - who has two children Ava, 11, and seven-year-old Deacon from her previous marriage with actor Ryan Phillippe - liked Jim from when she first met him but says the pair can't agree on who pursued who at the beginning of their relationship.
She said: "I always thought he was a really nice guy. And then he asked me out on a date and I still thought he was a really nice guy. Of course, it's always debatable who courted who isn't it? He tells me, 'You courted me.' And I'm like, 'What are you talking about, you courted me!' "
However, their ability to joke with each other is what Reese loves about her new husband.
She said: "We have the best time together. We literally laugh all the time and it's great. We just have a very nice, easy relationship. You know how you get that sort of great feeling when it's all working out?"
