Her latest sighting comes after a new source shed some light on her and Jim’s recent decision to end their marriage.
A source told People that it was “very difficult” for the 47-year-old movie star to accept that she and her ex-partner, 52, were “two very different people.”
Someone close to the two noted that the aspiring producer “has her hand in a lot of pots” and that Toth “prefers less frenzy.”
It added, “They spent less and less time together while she was at work.”

She also flipped a local home for nearly twice the price of what she paid for the home.

Reese has also been busy filming season three of The Morning Show, in which she stars opposite Jennifer Aniston.
Meanwhile, Toth has retained a seat on the board of directors of Flowcode, a technology company. Before that, he left talent agency CAA to work briefly at the failed streaming platform Quibi.
Per Reese’s solemn divorce announcement shared last week, the twosome decided to go their separate ways with “great care and consideration.”
A source said the partners were “working on” their issues and it took them a long time to get to a divorce.

The statement from the Big Little Lies actress and talent agent said: “We have some personal news to share… It is with great care and consideration that we have made the difficult decision to separate.
“We have enjoyed so many wonderful years together and move forward with deep love, kindness and mutual respect for all we have created together.
“Our number one priority is our son and our entire family as we navigate this next chapter.
“These are never easy matters and extremely personal. We really appreciate everyone’s respect for our family’s privacy at this time.”

The source also provided some background on the marriage, saying, “After she set up with Jim, their relationship moved quickly. Reese was thrilled with his attention and excited to marry him.”
Not only has Witherspoon recently starred in films like Your Place Or Mine with Ashton Kutcher, she has also worked on the Jennifer Garner series The Last Thing He Told Me, a thriller set in Sausalito, California.
