Reese Witherspoon doubles as a genius entrepreneur.
In August 2021, Reese caused quite a splash by selling her media company, Hello Sunshine, for more than $900 million. Not bad, huh. But Hello Sunshine is far from her first venture. In 2000, she founded the now-defunct Type A Films, the film production company behind Legally Blonde, Penelope, and others.
Reese and her husband of 10 years, Jim Toth, are both Hollywood heavyweights. A high-flying talent agent, Jim became the head of content acquisition and talent at Quibi relatively recently. He worked at the CCA beforehand.
Matthew McConaughey, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jamie Foxx, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Salma Hayek, Zooey Deschanel, and Neil Patrick Harris are just some of the stars to have worked with Jim, according to Deadline.
