Contrary to reports that surfaced elsewhere this weekend, Sunday, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal have not broken up. Phew! We knew it wasn't true!

Her rep said late yesterday: "It's not true. They have not split."

The actress met Gyllenhaal while filming 2007's Rendition, and the pair stepped out together shortly thereafter, confirming their relationship in summer 2008.

In the April 2009 issue of Elle, the Oscar-winning mother of two and ex-wife of Ryan Phillippe gushed about Jake: "He's fabulous. He really is a fantastic guy."

Couples come and go, but Gyllenspoon remains intact.

Reese divorced Ryan in 2007 after eight years together; they have two children: Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6. Gyllenhaal's previous girlfriend was Kirsten Dunst.

Witherspoon told Parade magazine last year, "Things change ... But your ability to love, that remains intact. Oh, I have a lot of hope for love! I do!"

Glad to hear that hope springs eternal. Or at least right now. Just don't read anything about David and Pamela Bach-Hasselhoff, guys. Just don't.

After attending Sunday's Golden Globes, it's back to the basics for Jake Gyllenhaal, who got his pulse racing with a morning run Monday through Santa Monica, Calif.

Meanwhile, the equally hunky Matthew McConaughey had the same idea (albeit surprisingly clothed for him), pounding the pavement with his canine sidekick.

So, which of these fitness fanatics would you rather ... you know ...

  • Jake Gyllenhaal Working Out
  • Working Up a Sweat

Who would you rather ...

An actor who's brought magic to the screen and a guy who's brought it to Vegas showrooms and many women's pants both celebrate their days of birth today.

Happy birthday, Criss Angel and Jake Gyllehaal!

In addition to being a fine-looking fellow, Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the brightest acting stars in Hollywood today. As for Criss Angel? Well, dude sees Holly Madison naked. That's pretty much all he needs on his resume at this point.

So, here's a little photo tribute to our birthday boys. Also celebrating one today? Kate Bosworth boy toy / alleged model James Rousseau! Sorry, James. No room for pics of you, handsome as you are. Kate has a gift for you, we'd imagine.

Gyllenspoon Make History

Don't get us wrong, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal make a hot couple and her divorce from Ryan Phillippe (go Abbie Cornish) was somewhat scandalous.

But whenever celebrities without the surname Spears or who don't star on The Hills make the cover of Us Weekly, we can't help but make note of our shock.

Especially this of all weeks. The Hills returns for its Spring run, Jamie Lynn Spears gets engaged to Casey Aldridge, and still, Gyllenspoon. What gives?

Gyllenspoon Make History

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal's untold love story trumped all other celebrity news this week, this popular gossip magazine felt in a head-scratching move.

To the magazine's credit, at least Britney Spears' hectic personal life, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, and Dancing With the Stars all made the sidebar.

Saying Rendition failed to meet expectations at the box office is like stating Lindsay Lohan's box office has been seen by a lot of guys (sorry, Riley Giles).

Some facts are sad, but undeniable.

But it doesn't mean that the movie's co-stars, Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon, don't have some great chemistry. And are possibly dating.

On the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Reese Witherspoon finally spoke out about her off-again, on-again possible beau and definite Rendition co-star.

When Ellen DeGeneres told Reese Witherspoon, 31, that Jake Gyllenhaal, 26, was cute, the Oscar winner gushed, "He's great!"

Gyllenspoon: Probably a couple. Definitely a long-ass couple name.

The day before, new photos surfaced of Witherspoon and Gyllenhaal (dressed in matching black T-shirts and jeans) strolling hand-in-hand and smooching at Los Angeles International Airport October 22. Hot stuff!

The pair had been returning from Rome, where they were promoting their new film. On October 19, Reese Witherspoon was spotted resting her head on Jake's shoulder while walking in the street. It's like they're meant to be.

And while their buzzed-about CIA thriller has bombed at the bomb office, at least Reese has Jake to comfort her. And her Oscar from Walk the Line. Yeah. Take that Ryan Phillippe, you Abbie Cornish-banging sleaze.

To some celebs, such as Kim Kardashian, Olivia Mojica and Paris Hilton, doggy style is just something you do to kill time... and make some money off sex tape sales.

To others (fortunately), it's more about fun, companionship and cuteness. Not to mention a fashionable accessory. Truly, little dogs are all the rage in Hollywood these days.

Let's take a look at a few stars and their furry friends. Below, Kristin Cavallari gives her pooch a lift during a morning outing in L.A. this week. While Lauren Conrad always melts our hearts, we'll say the same about K-Cav if we see a few more pictures like this one!

Also below (right), Jessica Simpson and her BFF and companion, Daisy, are seen at LAX airport in this selection exhumed from our archives of celebrity pictures.

Now here's the wonderful Jennifer Love Hewitt in The Hollywood Dog magazine with her puppy, and the pregnant Nicole Richie posing with her little Shih Tzu, Honeychild.

Lastly, we have Jake Gyllenhaal, apparently a big To Kill a Mockingbird fan, who has two dogs: Atticus Finch and Boo Radley. He's seen here with one of them.

Which celebrity dog pairing is your favorite?

Reese Witherspoon enjoyed a fun evening of laughs and drinks at L.A.'s La Terza on June 16 with pal Renée Zellweger and six other friends.

Missing from Reese's night out? Beau Jake Gyllenhaal.

Sources say the duo, who began dating in March (five months after her split from Ryan Phillippe, 32), had been getting serious in recent weeks - Jake even bonded with her two kids and met her mom.

But now Us Weekly is citing numerous sources close to the couple saying that the once-sizzling Jake and Reese have cooled.

"She has either called it off or is just taking a break," says a Reese Witherspoon pal.

The hitch? If may have been too much, too soon for the 31-year-old Legally Blonde and Walk the Line star still reeling from her divorce.

"She cares for Jake Gyllenhaal, but the timing is crappy," says the 'Spoon source. "She doesn't have enough emotional space for him right now."

Sources say the cute actress - who has been hunkering down at home because "she's worried that when she's in public, everyone's talking about her failed marriage" - is focusing on staying strong for the kids, Ava and Deacon.

Alas, it seems it will be just the three of them for a while longer.

At least Jake has his sister, Maggie, and brother-in-law, Peter Sarsgaard, to turn to for comfort. And besides, a source recently said that Gyllenhaal told a buddy: "I'm single."

Look out, ladies.

Jake Gyllenhaal is HOT.

Even you guys have to admit that.

And Reese Witherspoon is a cutie.

No one sane is gonna argue that either.

It's nice to see that this sweet, talented Hollywood couple is still going strong, while at the same time, keeping their courtship on the low-key side.

No trips to Hyde. No preening for the cameras, Heidi Montag style. Just good, old-fashioned getting to know each other and having fun.

Reese Witherspoon, 31, and Jake Gyllenhaal, 26, who met last summer on the set of Rendition, had a rendezvous following a May 25 visit to a doctor's office in Culver City, California.

After the appointment, the pair hopped into separate cars and headed to Reese Witherspoon's house. They make have gone to second base there.

"Jake put his hand out of the sunroof and was waving," says an eyewitness to the love story that is Gyllenhitherspoon. "They looked totally in love."

We're guessing that Jake hasn't yet busted out any Brokeback Mountain quotes such as "Reese, baby, I wish I knew how to quit you."

Contrarily, the impression he's giving pals is that of a smitten guy. They've been more than friends for three months now, but every day feels like the first.

"Jake said he's found someone who knows how to look out for both of them, and not just themselves," a Gyllenhaal source reports. "Reese is more attentive than anyone else he knows."

Reese's ex, Ryan Phillippe, was certainly attentive the other night. To Britney Spears. In the bathroom. At Les Deux! Well, probably not. But we heard that rumor.

She's a gamer.

We've always known this about her acting talents. But according to Us Weekly, Reese Witherspoon is now bringing her A-game to her love life!

A Reese Witherspoon Photo

After two months of what one Witherspoon source calls the actress' "trying out a courtship" with Jake Gyllenhaal after her painful split from actor Ryan Phillippe, a Gyllenhaaal pal dishes that it, "it is a definite romance."

What else would you expect, says another Reese Witherspoon pal, since the actress became determined to win the affections of Jake Gyllenhaal soon after separating from Phillippe October 30.

"Reese was the pursuer and really wanted to date Jake," says a pal of the Oscar winner, who co-stars with her new beau in the new drama, Rendition.

"She's known him for a while and thought he was intelligent and charming."

And the feeling is definitely mutual.

"Jake doesn't want a party girl at all," says a Gyllenhaal friend, who says that the relationship blossomed over DVD and takeout nights at home and long talks about movies.

"Reese and Jake are perfect because she also understands the business and the importance of family. Plus, he admires her great talent, thinks she is beautiful and he respects her values. He respects everything about her."

Catching the eye and winning the respect of one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors was exactly what Witherspoon, 31, needed after her marriage to Ryan Phillippe crashed and burned.

"She needed to prove to herself that she was sexy and desirable."

This hot new romance poses many questions...

  1. Is Reese really over Ryan? (our guess: yes)
  2. What does he think about his ex's new love interest? (our guess: he's too busy tagging Ashlee Simpson and other babes that he hasn't even noticed)
  3. Which Gyllenhaal family member does not approve of the relationship? (our guess: Peter Sarsgaard)
  4. Has Jake met Reese's kids? (our guess: no)
