Reese Witherspoon Reveals Her First Date Dealbreaker

She may be happily keeping company with agent Jim Toth now, but Reese Witherspoon still remembers her share of bad dates.

"I had someone correct my grammar on a blind date once, and I knew within the first 10 minutes that the date was over," the Walk the Line Oscar winner, 34, said at a press gathering for her new movie, James L. Brooks's How Do You Know, opening Dec. 17.

Even worse, "I don't even remember what I said – I probably said 'ain't.' " But the lesson she wishes to pass on: "Just don't correct my grammar. I'm from Tennessee. I probably say everything wrong."

Onscreen, she's caught in a love triangle with Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson. But off-screen, Witherspoon's life is a lot less complicated.

The mother of kids Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7 (with ex-husband – they split in 2007 – Ryan Philippe) has been dating Toth since January, and recently brushed off engagement rumors.

"I have two kids," she said. "I have a very sort of settled down life."
