After a failed marriage to Ryan Phillippe and a fizzled romance with Jake Gyllenhaal, Reese Witherspoon has found true love with new hubby Jim Toth, and the actress says she couldn't be happier.
"He's wonderful. He's just a really great guy, and I feel really lucky," she tells the May issue of Vogue, adding that even her fans approve of her new man.
"It's so cute: Over the holidays," Witherspoon recalls, "I was at a department store in L.A. with my friends and these three women from Oklahoma came up to me, and they said, 'Reese. We are so happy for yeeew. We liiike this guy for yeew.' And I said, 'You do?!' 'Yes, ma'am. We think he is a niiice man. We think he is going to treat you well and be good to yeeew.' I was like, 'Really?' So sweet! And I told them my mother likes him very much, too."
Witherspoon adds that she finally feels a sense of peace with entertainment agent Toth, whom she wed in Ojai, California in March.
"I think I am mostly very calm right now. Usually, I'm a little bit of a squirrel. I have a squirrelly energy… Like, you don't know where your next nut is gonna come from?" she explains. "At the moment, I am not buzzing around all squirrelly and nervous. I just feel really lucky to be with someone who cares so much and is so kind and loving. You know? It's a really nice thing to finally have that."
Despite her heartache over her past failed relationships, the "Water for Elephants" actress says she wouldn't change a thing about the way her life has played out so far.
"With whatever I've lost, I've gained tenfold in life experience," she tells Vogue. "I have an interesting life."
