It was the “Don’t you know who I am?” heard ‘round the country this week.
Reese Witherspoon auditioning for the role of Legally Drunk ‘N Blonder-er when she disobeyed an Atlanta police officer by getting out of her car after her husband Jim Toth was pulled over for suspicion of drunk-driving.
That suspicion proved to be accurate when he blew a .139 on his sobriety test.
Reese has since apologized for her blabbering, admitting she “clearly had one drink too many,” but that doesn’t get to the heart—or liver—of the issue, which is her husband’s drinking problem.
Jim, a successful Creative Artists Agency (CAA) agent who reps an impressive roster of clientele like Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson, may or may not be an alcoholic, but according to sources, he’s constantly surrounded by drinks per his job.
“Jim has always been a big social drinker,” a source tells People magazine. “A lot of his job is being social. He's out to lunch or dinner almost every day of the week, schmoozing clients and taking business meetings.
Another source corroborates (our emphasis added in bold) that this arrest is "going to make the two of them stop and pause, and think about maybe how much Jim's drinking plays a role in their lives, if it does or not."
If he’s not going to rehab in the approaching days, they’re definitely weighing it as an option.
