Jeremy Sisto confirmed a little-known rumor during his Reddit AMA chat this week when he revealed he used to date none other than Reese Witherspoon. The two were co-stars in the 1992 TV movie Desperate Choices: To Save My Child.

"She was my first actress girlfriend," said Sisto, 41. "We had a long distance relationship for a long time. I was so into her. Then she went to Africa to do a movie and I guess I thought she had broken up with me because she didn't call that much, so I moved on and met my ex-wife Marisa. When she returned, I found out that wasn't her intention but i had already gotten involved. Felt badly. She's a great person."

Witherspoon, 39, declined to comment.

Sisto, known for roles in Clueless, the ABC sitcom Suburgatory and the network's new drama series Wicked City, and first wife Marisa Ryan, star of Major Dad and the new Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, were married for more than eight years.

He and current wife Addie Lane wed in 2009 and have two children, daughter Charlie-Ballerina, 6, and son Bastian Kick, 3.

Witherspoon married her Cruel Intentions co-star Ryan Phillippe in 1999. The two, parents to daughter Ava, 16, and son Deacon, 12, divorced in 2008. Witherspoon has been married to current husband Jim Toth since 2011. The two share a 3-year-old sonTennessee.
