Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon’s Engagement Ring: All the Details!
As you know, we don’t post about Reese’s personal life here, but I thought this one article about her engagement ring was ok.
Entertainment Weekly showed a picture of the ring in one of their recent segments about Reese, and you can see a screencap of that in the Gallery (click the thumbnail preview image below). Hopefully Reese will make an appearance at an event soon so we can get a proper glimpse of it!
The 34-year-old How Do You Know actress accepted a stunning 4 carat Ashoka cut diamond engagement ring from CAA agent Jim Toth. (UsMagazine.com was the first to announce the couple’s “happy” engagement.)
Toth, 40, worked with jeweler William Goldberg to design the perfect sparkler for his bride-to-be. Set on a pave diamond-and-platinum band, Goldberg says Toth was drawn to the rarity of the Ashoka diamond, particularly with its 62 displayed facets and rounded corners.
“Jim wants it to come from him and for it to be completely unique,” a source told Us in November.
According to Goldberg, less than 10% of rough diamonds each year have the potential to become Ashoka cut diamonds, making it “the only choice” for a star like Witherspoon.

Comments Off on Reese on her Christmas plans
Reese Witherspoon, who topbills James Brooks’ “How Do You Know,” asked how her holidays would be different with a new boyfriend (Jim Toth), laughed heartily and replied, “I don’t know yet. We’ve never spent Christmas together.” She described her beau as “part Italian and Hungarian, so it will be interesting.”
“I make my mother’s champagne punch, which is basically just champagne and ginger ale,” the actress remarked with a chuckle. “Everybody has too much to drink and sings loudly. It’s fun! We watch the kids rip through their presents. They have the best time.”
When she’s not working, Reese Witherspoon is a full-time dedicated mom to her two kids, daughter Ava, 11, and son Deacon, 7. And although plenty of kids would think having Witherspoon as their mom would be considered cool, the 34-year-old recently revealed to MTV News while promoting her upcoming film “How Do You Know” that it’s the other way around: Her kids are the cool ones.
“They’re into the White Stripes right now. They’re both learning to play the electric guitar, and it’s kind of awesome,” she said. “They’re playing ‘Seven Nation Army’ around the house.”
An 11-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy into the White Stripes? We have to agree, she has cool kids.
“That’s the thing too: Having kids that grow up in L.A., the sophistication level is totally different,” she explained. “They are only into songwriters who write their own music, and I’m like, ‘Wow, I was not that sophisticated as a child.’ ”
Witherspoon once told Parents magazine that her kids with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe keep her grounded. “Realizing you’re not anything special to the kids is always a great sort of reminder that you’re just a regular person,” she said. “A regular embarrassing old mom. They know what I do for a living — that I’m an actress — but they haven’t seen any of my movies. Yet.”
Speaking of being embarrassing, Witherspoon said her daughter once asked her not to embarrass her at a Carrie Underwood concert. “She said, ‘Mom I really appreciate you taking me to the concert, but will you please not embarrass me in front of Carrie Underwood by singing because she’s a real singer and you’re just, like, a movie singer.’ ”
Reese Witherspoon is always in the ‘Know’ about her life
You don’t become the queen of romantic comedies without learning a few things about matters of the heart.
Reese Witherspoon, actress and mother of two, is well-versed in the mysteries and mores of love, and she spends hours discussing and debating them with her girlfriends.
“I’m literally the girl who talks constantly about relationships. I hang up with one (friend), and I pick up the phone and call another one. It’s an ongoing dialogue all day long,” she says. “I don’t understand a woman who doesn’t talk about love and relationships.”
She has been through a divorce (from actor Ryan Phillippe) and breakups (most notably with actor Jake Gyllenhaal), but Witherspoon isn’t one to get hung up on past amorous calamities. She views them as life lessons.
“You gotta be glad that you went through them, and you gotta be glad that you learned from them,” says Witherspoon, 34. “You gotta learn what you want.”
And like so many of the romantically challenged, you have to figure out if he’s the one for you. That’s the perplexing question Witherspoon toys with Friday in How Do You Know, a rom-com with the actress playing a past-her-prime softball pro who gets cut from Team USA and finds herself torn between two guys: a self-absorbed jock (Owen Wilson) and a somewhat neurotic businessman (Paul Rudd). But unlike Witherspoon, who exudes certainty and self-assurance, the character of Lisa is a romantic naïf.
“She’s not very good at articulating her feelings. She’s never been in a serious relationship. She’s almost an innocent,” says Witherspoon. “She doesn’t care if (men) call her back if she slept with them. She’s having sex for fun and sex for sport.”
Reese Witherspoon’s two children were left horrified when they saw their mother knocked to the ground in a freak softball accident, which left her with a black eye and a bloody nose.
The Hollywood actress was practicing for her role in new movie “How Do You Know” last year by playing a game of softball at home with her family and friends.
But the game ended in agony for Witherspoon after she was hit in the face with the ball.
The “Legally Blonde” star fell to the ground and was left covered in blood, much to the horror of her daughter, Ava, and son, Deacon, who both witnessed the shocking injury.
Witherspoon tells Access Hollywood, “I got popped in the eye. I got a black eye. Oh, I got a bloody nose… I was just practicing at home with friends and stuff and I just, you know, throw to keep my arm in shape and stuff…
“They (my kids) were there when I got it and I hit the ground – that freaked them out a little bit.”
But Witherspoon admits her kids later felt proud of their mom’s wounds, adding: “They thought it was cool. It’s like I’m the only mom at school with a black eye!”
Reese is currently in attendance at the event to honour her with a Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star, and photos have started to surface! Reese looks pretty in a little black dress with red dots, and, in a surprise move, has her kids with her! Also with her are her parents Betty & John, her boyfriend Jim Toth, and directors James L. Brooks (How Do You Know) and James Mangold (Walk The Line!). It’s great to see Reese celebrating this special day with her family.
Below are a few preview photos from the event – there are bound to be many, many photos around from this event, so I will leave you with these previews for now, and be back with full coverage from the event for you tomorrow! Be sure to check back for all that wonderful Reese goodness!
And congratulations once again to Reese on her Star!
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway laughed with actress Reese Witherspoon at the Avon Foundation for Women event in NYC, chatting about her new movie with Jack Nicholson (“How Do You Know”), her shoes (Louboutin) and doing a mini-triathlon (with her 11-year-old daughter, Ava).
“It was hard,” Witherspoon said of the triathlon. “My results showed my lack of training. Ava pointed out that a 5th-grader passed me.”

"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
