Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth are one of Hollywood’s cutest but also most elusive couples. They’ve done a good job of staying out of the spotlight ever since they went public with their relationship over seven years ago. The Oscar-winning actress and her talent agent husband are celebrating seven years of marriage, so in celebration of that, here’s a look at 8 things you probably didn’t know about their relationship!

8. How They Met

Surprisingly, this love story started with a drunken encounter! In an interview with Elle, the Big Little Lies actress revealed how she first met her husband, Jim Toth, and it’s a pretty funny story! According to her, an extremely drunk guy started hitting on her when Toth intervened. “He was like (slurring), ‘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 a–, what a jerk. And that Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation,” she said. Witherspoon was single when they met, she’d just ended her relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal in late 2009.

7. Dating a Non-Celebrity

It can be extremely difficult to maintain a relationship while in the limelight and it’s even harder when both individuals are celebrities! After a few star-studded relationships with the likes of Ryan Phillippe and Jake Gyllenhaal, Witherspoon moved on to talent agent Jim Toth. She opened up to Glamour about how different it is dating someone who’s a “non-celebrity.” She said: “I have a little perspective on this. I wouldn’t say it’s easier. Every relationship has its own dynamic. And I don’t want to disparage any of the other relationships that I’ve had that were meaningful and wonderful. But what I’m finding out is that it’s very comfortable to be with somebody who understands my career, but doesn’t do what I do. He’s a great guy. He’s wonderful.”
