  • Newly-single Reese Witherspoon is spotted on a dinner date weeks after splitting with old beau Jake Gyllenhaal

    If recent pictures tell the real story, Reese Witherspoon has a new man!

    The actress, newly-single after quietly splitting with Jake Gyllenhaal in December, has been spotted having dinner with a handsome suitor at Santa Monica’s cozy Italian restaurant Locanda Portofino.

    So who is he?

    According to gossip rag People, the man in question is Jim Toth, an agent at Creative Artists Agency – the powerful Hollywood agency that look after Reese.

    ‘They were very flirtatious throughout dinner,’ said a fellow diner. ‘They were having a lot of fun, totally getting along and laughing and talking the whole dinner. Reese seemed very happy. She was smiling all dinner. The mood was upbeat and really good.’

    The pair spent two hours at the dinner table and parted with a kiss.

    ‘Reese reached around his neck and pulled him close for a hug,’ says the onlooker. ‘They kissed goodbye on the cheek – but it was a very friendly goodbye.’

    So was it a date?

    A source close to Reese maintains the meeting was just business, while a pal of Toth’s says the evening was ‘a date’, but ‘nothing serious.’

    What do you think? Is Reese’s new beau a worthy replacement for Jake?
