Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth had a fairy tale-worthy wedding last March, but the way these two met was anything but!

While chatting with Elle for their February issue, the 35-year-old said that the CAA agent swooped in after he noticed a drunken friend of his was (unsuccessfully) hitting on Reese. Guess the stars really are just like us!

Reese said:

“This really drunk guy was hitting on me, making such an idiot of himself, yelling at me. He was like [slurring, scowling, pointing finger in her face], ‘You don’t know me.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I know. I don’t know you!’ Jim came over and said, ‘Please excuse my friend. He’s just broken up with someone.’ And I remember thinking, his friend is such an ass, what a jerk. And that Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation.”

Reese also commented on how she is different than when she was married to Ryan Phillippe:

“I have to be honest with you, I’m a totally different person now . . . I don’t think I realized how little I was living. I was so consumed with trying to hold it together.”

You can catch Reese on the big screen in her next film, This Means War, out on February 17. Check out the trailer below.
