I love hearing about how couples met each other, and for Reese Witherspoon, she's got a super fun "how we met" story. Assuming getting semi-attacked by a drunk person is your idea of a fun story.
Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth met when his drunk friend was hitting on her. Jim Toth was actually the wingman in this situation, which is why you should always get your friend liquored up and take their sloppy seconds because you never know when you're going to marry Reese Witherspoon, err, well, you know what I mean.
Witherspoon explains how they met to Elle magazine, "It happened out of the blue. This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me. He was like, 'You don't know me.' and I was like, 'Yeah, I know. I don't know you!'"
Ok, quick thing, without fail all drunk people yell out, "You don't know me!" This always happens to me?! How many drunk homeless men have thrown their empty bottle of Southern Comfort at my feet while yelling "You don't know me!" Like, so many! I have so much in common with Reese Witherspoon!
Anyways, back to her story. Where were we? Oh yeah, so the drunk guy is hitting on her and...."Jim came over and said, 'Please excuse my friend. He's just broken up with someone.' Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That's just kind of who he is, a really good person."
And that's how they met. Flash forward a bit and they are happily married.
"Jim really surprised me. You don't know who you're going to end up with. When I was 20, if you'd asked me, I wouldn't have said Jim," admits Witherspoon.
