A representative for Reese Witherspoon has shot down reports the Hollywood actress is heading down the aisle to wed her agent boyfriend.
The Legally Blonde star was rumoured to have accepted a proposal from Jim Toth, 10 months after they began dating.

A source told Us Weekly magazine, “Jim is ready (for marriage)… (Witherspoon) is happy, in love and definitely wants to settle down.”

But the actress’ spokesperson has dismissed the claims, telling People.com, “They are not engaged.”

An insider insists the couple is well matched, but there are no immediate plans to wed.

The source says, “Jim knows Reese is the one for him. It’s what he’s been waiting for. (Getting engaged) is a natural step for them but they’re not in a rush. There’s no deadline, no timetable. But it’s something in the future.”

The engagement speculation comes two months after Witherspoon, who was previously married to actor Ryan Phillippe, was forced to deny tabloid reports she was pregnant with Toth’s child.
