A new source has provided some insight into Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth’s recent decision to end their marriage.
A source told People that it was ‘very difficult’ for the 47-year-old movie star to accept that she and her former partner, 52, were ‘two very different people.’
Someone close to the two noted that the ambitious producer ‘has her hand in a lot of pots’ and Toth ‘prefers less frenzy.’
It was added that, ‘They’ve been spending less and less time together while she was working.’
More than ten years after tying the knot, the longtime duo recently ‘found themselves with fewer interests in common.’
