Reese: I'm glad I'm not dating

Reese Witherspoon has said she is relieved not to be dating anymore as she found it too complicated.

The Oscar-winning actress, mother to 11-year-old daughter Ava and seven-year-old son Deacon from her marriage to Ryan Phillippe, got married for the second time at the weekend to Hollywood agent Jim Toth.

Reese told Elle magazine: "I think dating is inherently complicated, anyways; what I do for a living makes it even more complicated. Let's just say I'm happy to not be dating.

She added: "I met a wonderful man. I feel really, really lucky."

The Water For Elephants star is pleased to have found love, as it's one less thing for her to worry about.

Reese said: "I'm in my head a lot and I... worry. I know it's bad for me and I know I shouldn't do it, but I do."

The 35-year-old Hollywood star married Ryan, who she starred alongside in Cruel Intentions, after meeting him on her 21st birthday, which she said was "ridiculously young".

She said: "I was just so, so young. I learnt a lot though. It was an excellent opportunity for me to really find out what it means to be a partner and to be in a marriage and it's not anything that I thought it was."

Reese said her split from Ryan in 2007 had taught her a lot of lessons for a second marriage.

She revealed: "You can't say 'I don't want to talk about that.' You just can't. You've got to talk about it all."
