Reese Witherspoon’s husband is a barfly, a happy-hour lover & a bad tipper
Jim Toth and Reese Witherpoon’s marriage served two purposes. It wasn’t just about making Reese a bankable actress and getting her another Oscar nomination (although that was a large part of it). No, Reese and Jim also got married to smooth out his image as a party-loving Hollywood agent constantly knee-deep in wannabe actresses and boozy shenanigans. All of that came out following Reese and Jim’s dual 2013 arrests in Georgia – he was arrested for a DUI, Reese was arrested for being an AMERICAN CITIZEN (and a drunk and belligerent one at that). My point is that Reese and Jim are still pretty boozy, despite their attempts at an image makeover. Now Star Magazine says that Jim is a total barfly, that he avoids Reese by sitting in his favorite bar for hours on end, four nights a week. Oh, and he hits on the ladies.
Two years after he and his wife were arrested after a night of drinking, sources say Reese Witherspoon‘s husband Jim Toth, is still hitting the bottle and causing a ruckus at a local watering hole.
“Jim is a big fan of happy-hour drinks. He comes in multiple times a week by himself to watch whatever sports team is on TV,” says an insider who frequents Tavern Restaurant, just a few miles from Reese and Jim’s Brentwood, Caif., home. “Staff members roll their eyes when he walks in because they know what’s coming.”
“Jim’s drinking habits run the same course every time,” says the regular. “He’ll order a few beers, which then turns into whiskey drinks or strong mixed coctails. Jim will drink in the middle of the day, and by the end of happy hour, he’s shouting at the TV. He doesn’t tip very well either.”
“One day, two young women were seated at the bar watching the baseball game; it was about two in the afternoon. Jim came up to the bar, sat next to them and started chatting them up,” says another regular. “He tried to start up a conversation about the game, but the girls tried to ignore him. The girls got up and left the restaurant thanks to him.”
“Reese and Jim fight like every couple, but the truth is, she isn’t exactly easy to deal with,” says an insider. “She’s very bossy and controlling. Just look at her drunken arrest—you can see what Jim has to put up with. She can also get insecure, and they’ve had fights over this.”
“Given the amount of time he spends in here, you’ve gotta wonder if he just doesn’t want to go home,” says one of the Tavern Restaurant’s regulars. “I can’t imagine Reese is too happy about the time he spends here. I hope, for both their sakes, he’s not drinking away their marriage.”
Does CAA allow their agents to be so boozy in the middle of the day, multiple days of the work week? I know the Hollywood system can still feel like it’s caught in a Mad Men-era, but I seriously doubt that Toth has this much free time to booze it on the regular without CAA noticing and caring. That being said, I believe that he’s a regular at the Tavern, mostly because of this detail: “He doesn’t tip very well either.” If he tipped well, we would never have heard this story. Because he’s a bad tipper, someone at the bar is selling him out.
Here are some photos of Reese from the last week. She gets pap’d so often these days. She’s gotta sell that Draper James stuff somehow.
