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!

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)

The last time we reported these two were more than pals, it was raw speculation. Hollywood rumors and gossip at their finest. But it turns out we were right!

Five months after her seven-year marriage to Ryan Phillippe ended, Reese Witherspoon appears to be discreetly moving on - with Jake Gyllenhaal!

The delightful duo is starring together in the upcoming drama Rendition, the filming of which officially wrapped in March.

"Reese is ready for someone she can trust," a close friend of Witherspoon tells Us Weekly, who did not comment if Jake wears boxers or briefs. "Jake is an actor, is stable, has a successful career and wouldn't want her money. She can trust him."

According to a source close to Jake Gyllenhaal source, the pair - who were spotted (separately) leaving a New York City apartment building in early March - have been dating for about two months.

On March 30, Reese Witherspoon stopped by The Clay Pit in her neighborhood of Brentwood for some Indian takeout, while Gyllenhaal waited in the car.

"When she came back out to the car, he got out and opened the door for her and was shielding his face so no one would see him," says a fellow diner, Rachel Sounhein.

The two share common lowkey interests: running, cooking, and quiet nights in - a welcome change from waiting for that jackass Ryan Phillippe to come home from boys' nights out.

"Reese and Ryan fought about Ryan's need to go to clubs - with Jake, she won't have that problem," says someone familiar with the situation.

Indeed, when the Zodiac star split from Kirsten Dunst in 2004, one source reported taht her constant partying was largely to blame. Recently, she's been spotted with rocker Johnny Borrell, though she's accumulated many boyfriends of late.

As for Gyllenhitherspoon?

"They are taking it slow," says a Gyllenhaal pal. "It is new for both of them. But they're seeing each other and seeing where it goes. This is for real."

Looks like his niece, Ramona, is no longer the only special lady in Jake's life!

Paris Hilton likes to go doggy style. That we know.

But for some other stars, canine love doesn't necessarily translate into being a dirty slut. Which is good to see. Check out the cute pictures of stars and dogs below!

Plunging Neckline

TOP ROW: Former American Idol finalist Katharine McPhee (left) cradles her chihuahua, Nina, at The Grove in L.A., while Zodiac star and certified hottie Jake Gyllenhaal takes a wander with his pups - Atticus and Boo Radley - on the beach. Jake may not be a fan of boxers or briefs, but apparently, he is a fan of To Kill a Mockingbird!

BOTTOM ROW: Her workouts in West Hollywood are strenuous, but that doesn't mean Fergie (left) can't paws (eh?) to play with a furry friend. Meanwhile, Jessica Simpson goes for an afternoon ride with her bitch in L.A. No, not John Mayer. At least he's not in the picture. We're talking about adorable little Daisy! Aww.

It seems that the sexy co-stars of the new movie Rendition may have come away with a little more than just eight-figure paychecks.

Well, probably not. But T.H. Gossip can't help but speculate on two of its favorite stars potentially hooking up.

Reese Waves

No, not Katie Rees and Antonella Barba. Get your minds out of the gutter.

According to OK! Magazine, the adorable Reese Witherspoon and T.H. Gossip man crush Jake Gyllenhaal have been spotted hopping between each other's homes and hotel rooms!

Reese, who separated from husband Ryan Phillippe on October 30, after he possibly banged Abbie Cornish, has been seen laughing and cavorting with Gyllenhaal of late.

Maybe Witherspoon can answer the riddle of whether he wears boxers or briefs!

Jake was linked to Natalie Portman awhile back, but the only woman in his life right now is his adorable niece, Ramona. So maybe he and Reese have a future together! Or at the very least, more pics on our site!

Boxers vs. briefs.

It's a time-honored debate.

A Cruel Rebound

We've been wondering, what does Jake Gyllenhaal think?

Well, funny you should ask. A New York shopper in Bloomingdale's underwear department recently watched the Brokeback Mountain and Zodiac star shopping with a salesman - and deciding for himself where he stands on this hot issue.

Or at least trying to.

Here's the New York Post account of the trip to the department store made by Maggie Gyllenhaal's little brother and Ramona Sarsgaard's uncle:

"[They were] combing through every style... A good 10 minutes later, Jake was still at it... holding up a pair of tight white briefs that he pulled out of the package to examine, as if he'd never seen tighty whities before in his entire life," an eyewitness said.

"It was hilarious. He looked very confused and had a furrowed brow... He was examining underwear like an anthropologist in the city's most highly trafficked department store."

Alright, well, that tells us nothing, other than that Jake wears something for support. Which is more than we can say for other celebrities. Such as Britney Spears.

Or Jake's BFF, Matthew McConaughey, for that matter. At least we're guessing. This is a guy eschews clothing of all types.

As we talked about yesterday, Jake Gyllenhaal is set to star in the new thriller, Zodiac.

His preferred role, though, is that of doting uncle: to neice Ramona Sarsgaard.

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal Topless

"It's great, wonderful," the actor said.

Ramona, who was born in October to Gyllenhaal's big sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and actor fiance, Peter Sarsgaard, is "incredible."

"Of course, I've brought over presents," he said Wednesday at the Cinema Society and GQ New York City screening of Zodiac.

"She's not talking yet, but she looks amazing. I revel in her growth. It's an amazing process to watch - and to watch my sister also."

In Zodiac, Gyllenhaal portrays Robert Graysmith, the San Francisco Chronicle cartoonist obsessed with the case of the Zodiac killer who terrorized the Bay Area starting in the late '60s.

The talented, handsome actor may not be having wild, public sex with Kirsten Dunst anymore, but he still had plenty of passion left for this role.

"I think it was something natural when you're shooting for 110 days, being immersed in a case where there is so much information and every scene consists of making sure that the dialogue is so detailed," he said.

But don't think Matthew McConaughey's BFF and the Chronicle sleuth are one and the same.

"I wouldn't say I find a lot of similarities with my character. Obsession has many manifestations. I always looked at it like he loves puzzles. He's like a kid in a candy store. It's an odd candy store, obviously. But for him, there was a joy in every clue that he got."

Interesting take on the situation. It's kind of how we feel about each Antonella Barba photo that turns up.

This one's for the ladies.

We know there are an abundance of pictures of gals going wild on this site, and we apologize - but sometimes, almost nude Antonella Barba pictures must be shown to the public. You gotta take the bad with the good.

Lovely Eyes

We'll make it up to you, though. Here are some pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal at the premiere of his new movie, Zodiac. The handsome, 26-year-old, baby-faced Brokeback Mountain star is as charming as he is talented.

Needless to say, former girlfriends Natalie Portman and Kirsten Dunst don't know what they're missing. Or maybe they do. Regardless, it's nice that this bachelor has a good support network, including BFF Lance Armstrong, future brother-in-law Peter Sarsgaard and baby niece Ramona by his side at this big event.

Interestingly, Zodiac is the second film in under two years to be made about the Zodiac serial killer. The first, titled The Zodiac, starred Grey's Anatomy hunk Justin Chambers.

Forget portraying Lance Armstrong on the big screen.

Perhaps Jake Gyllenhaal should star as as firefighter in his next movie instead.

Sexy EW Cover

The Oscar-nominated actor played such a role quite effectively Wednesday after he and his sister, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal were forced from their beds due to an early morning fire at Manka's Inverness Lodge in the San Francisco Bay area of California.

After all, Jake does have a lot of free time now that he isn't having crazy sex with Kirsten Dunst anymore.

According to the Marin Independent Journal, the Gyllenhaals - who frequently vacation at the inn - were among the dozen or so guests that fled into the wind and rain at close to 3 a.m.

"Jake was helping me pull things out of the fire," chef and co-owner Daniel DeLong told the Journal, adding that the actors were helpful and concerned about the historic lodge.

The fire reportedly started after a tree crashed into the back of the inn. Fortunately, Peter Sarsgaard was not injured in the accident.
