Witherspoon's friends 'concerned about Toth'

Reese Witherspoon’s pals are reportedly worried that Jim Toth is too much like the actress’ first husband Ryan Phillippe.

Reese Witherspoon’s friends are apparently concerned her husband “could lead her astray”.

The 37-year-old actress was briefly jailed last month after her spouse Jim Toth was taken into custody for driving under the influence in Atlanta, Georgia. Reese was arrested after entering into a verbal disagreement with the police officer and ignoring his request to stay inside the vehicle.

Talent agent Jim is apparently known as a “big social drinker” and those close to the actress fear he could be another ‘party boy’ like Reese’s ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.

“This behaviour is all a bit too familiar. Ryan certainly used to enjoy himself and it caused huge issues. Jim being arrested for DUI is obviously going to concern friends and family,” a source told British magazine Look. “No one wants history to repeat itself or for Reese to get hurt again. This was so out of character – there’s a reason she was known as a good girl. There are concerns Jim could lead her astray.”

Reese issued a public apology for her disorderly behaviour and admitted she was “deeply embarrassed” by the incident.

According to insiders, the couple have discussed toning down their alcohol intake and will keep a low-profile for a while as they focus on their family and career.

“She and Jim have talked about maybe giving up alcohol for a while. It’s been a really scary week and they’re pretty shaken up. DUI is a serious crime. I’m sure Jim gets why everyone’s comparing him to Ryan,” the source added. “Jim obviously has a lot to prove to Reese’s friends, who’ll be watching him very closely from now on.”
