Reese Witherspoon talks fiance

Reese Witherspoon would like you to meet her fiance Jim Toth -- her first non-famous partner in forever.

Reese Witherspoon talks fianceReese Witherspoon got engaged to Jim Toth over Christmas, and she wants everyone to know how awesome he is.

"The best barometer is your friends. I have no perspective. Somehow when they say it to me, I feel happy. My mother said, 'You seem like your old self.' Where did I go to? Where have I been?" mused Reese Witherspoon in a pre-engagement December interview.

Despite Toth's close ties to the industry -- he's an agent with CAA -- he is not a celebrity and represents the first non-performer Reese has dated since before her marriage to Ryan Phillippe, from whom she split in 2006.

So is dating a so-called "normal" guy different? "There's not a compare and contrast. I don't have a chart. I don't blog about it. I'm definitely happy," said Witherspoon. "I'm happy with all the experiences I've had. I've learned what I don't want. I've probably gotten closer to what I do want. It's good. I'm currently very happy."

Toth and Witherspoon started dating in January 2010 but didn't go public until a trip to Ojai for her birthday in March. They have since stayed pretty under the radar -- until this week's announcement.
