While the Hollywood pond is a closed circle, and it seems like stars only marry within the industry, some celebrities have decided to keep their professional and private lives separated, and fell in love with your Average Joe, the guy next door or the local bartender. These are the stars who found love with the people behind the scenes: production assistants, camera men and people from outside of show business.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
The love story of actress Reese Witherspoon and her husband of nine years Jim Toth is a modern day love story. Unlike most celebrity couples who meet their partners on set, the first encounter of the actress and her husband was completely coincidental. The two happened to attend the same party, where Jim’s friend was trying to court Witherspoon a little too aggressively. Toth noticed that despite Reese’s subtle objections, his friend wouldn’t give up, and stepped to her rescue.
He apologized for his friend’s drunken behavior, explaining he was getting over a breakup, and Reese immediately recognized Jim’s kind heart and good intentions. Jim isn’t a fellow actor (we don’t all have what it takes), but he also works in the entertainment industry, as a talent agent. However, the two never met through their work. Ever since their first interaction, when he saved her from that awkward situation, Jim has made Reese feel safe and cared for.
