Since splitting with Jake Gyllenhaal in December, Reese Witherspoon has been slowly getting back into the dating pool. Sources say the star, 33, has been quietly and casually dating Hollywood agent Jim Toth.
The new couple was seen having an "intimate" dinner Wednesday night at L.A.'s Pace restaurant. Though insiders say that Witherspoon and Toth are not serious, they definitely seem to be getting along well.
"Reese looked very cute and casual in jeans with black boots. She was in the best mood ever and would not stop laughing," a spy said. "It was very obvious that Reese likes Jim and the two had great energy together."
When they got into his car, "Jim seemed protective of Reese and made sure that she got into the passenger seat safely," added the source. "They kept laughing as they drove [away]."
Maybe a light relationship is just what Witherspoon needs, since pals close to the actress say the reason she and Gyllenhaal ended their almost-three-year relationship was because he was pressuring her to get married. Divorced from actor Ryan Phillippe, Witherspoon (mom to Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6) just wasn't ready to tie the knot again.
"She felt pressured to wed again but she wasn't ready," an insider said at the time of the split. "She couldn't give Jake enough and she got cold feet. Jake wanted all of her."
