Reese Witherspoon: How I met my husband

Reese Witherspoon has been proclaiming her love for husband Jim Toth from just about every place she can find, and in February's Elle magazine, the 35-year-old actress reveals a bit more about how she found herself falling for the talent agent.

"It happened out of the blue. This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me," the mom of two tells the magazine. "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."

Witherspoon and Toth tied the knot in March of 2011 after dating for just over a year, but the actress says that after her 2006 divorce from her first husband, Ryan Phillippe, she wasn't sure she'd remarry.

"Jim said, 'I'm gonna show you every day what a good partner is, what a good person is. I'm going to take care of you,'" she recalls. "I was like, 'What are you talking about? I've never had anybody like that in my life.'"

And while it all sounds idyllic, Witherspoon warns that no relationship is perfect - including hers.

"I want to not perpetuate any more of this kind of garbage that's out there in the media about women falling in love blindly," she tells Elle. "No one's love life is perfect...My life is just as realistic as everybody else's."

    "Jim said, 'I'm gonna show you every day what a good partner is, what a good person is. I'm going to take care of you,'" she recalls – Actually those are the words of a abuser/minupulator/controller. Doesn't mean he is but if someone said those words to soneone I knew, red flags would go off.

    What is wrong with most of you commentators? I am pretty sure Reese is prettier and certainly more successful than any of the woman trashing her here. I am also VERY certain that any of the males trashing her couldn't even get a woman 1\10th as pretty as Reese – which means if you think she's hideous the woman you're with must resemble Frankenstein.

    She's a liberal and Phillippe is a Neocon. It never would have worked.
