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.
