Reese Witherspoon: Jake Gyllenhaal is Fabulous!

Reese Witherspoon: Jake Gyllenhaal is Fabulous!

Reese Witherspoon graces the April 2009 cover of Elle. Here’s a snapshot of how the mag’s interview:

On her divorce from Ryan Phillippe: “Very humiliating and very isolating…But, by the way, if it’s not painful, maybe it wasn’t the right decision to marry to begin with. Those are the appropriate emotions. When people get in your face and say, ‘This will pass,’ you think, Are they crazy? I’m never gonna feel any better than I feel right this minute and nothing’s ever gonna make sense again. And I still have moments where I’m like, Nothings ever gonna make sense again.”

On boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal: “He’s fabulous. He really is a fantastic guy. Unfortunately, he’s not in the movie, so we can’t really talk about him.”

On being a young mother: “When I first had Ava, I couldn’t afford [help]. And it was so hard. I was out in Los Angeles, living [away from my family]. I really didn’t have any friends. And I had a baby. No one else who was 22 had a baby. I couldn’t go out.”

On her reported Type A personality: “I don’t think I’m a control freak. I think I’m just fearful. I operate from a lot of fear, like, of things being lost or forgotten or neglected. Losing the spiritual rather than the physical. It’s so funny to me that somehow I’ve been portrayed as a very, like, closed-off or uptight person. I’m very open.”

    Jake Gyllenhaal is gay. Reese is just his beard.

    Reese this is why I admire you, with two small babies and a husband you couldn’t rely on you still held it together. You didn’t go blab to tabloids or national tv for pity five years later, you are a better person. I admire you simply because with two small children you haven’t bellyached and moaned poor me to the press. People have made their own minds up about Ryan and his g/f. You win hands down..

  • JESS

    i really like her! I too had a baby at 22 and married. I would feel horrible to have to go thru a divorce publicly and to have to endure the pictures of my ex with his mistress/girlfriend…

  • se

    The computer must make lot of special efect to correct tyhe ugly face of this studio prstitute!

  • teehee

    she has always been classy especially with the way she handled her divorce and it’s good to see that she’s still on top and still looks good.

  • ladybug

    for all of the crap that people have talked about men and their mistresses, i was always surprised not to hear more about this couple. here is a man who definitely left his wife (and mother of his children) for his costar.

  • se

    Like all prostitute she try to be pregnant to force the men married with her!
    Their men never love her and get married only because she had money! To sleep with this garbage it necessary to dring lot of alcoolic drink and take lot of drugs befere the sex!
    When Ryan Phillippe thought that the money would be enough he take another Hollywood prostitute with better appearence!
    Nor Reese Witherpoon has anothe prostitute men to take her money.
    Jaek Gyllenhaal and another Hollywood gingolo of the brothel film industry can only have success with a so a dirty country like USA!

  • voe2

    Oh, why can’t all these wannabe classy celebrities zip their mouths about their ages-old divorce or feeling about it? They have had new boyfriend (many in one case) since then. Reese is commendable for not playing the victim card or the misunderstood one, but she really could have instructed the interviewer not to ask about her divorce (yes, same rule applies to both because both vocally wanted to keep private stuff private). I sense a bit of desire to win admiration here which by the way is also what the other divorcee have been seeking–the strong woman title.

  • h.

    Oh please, she’s gorgeous and you just don’t like her because she’s successful. Get a life.

  • Rita

    Very nice cover. I think she holds herself well in the public eye.. like Angelina. Good PR job!

  • besty

    She looks great in this photos. I like her. She is hot:

  • se

    For all the crap that people have taken about this couple …there are lot of PR whose make lot of propaganda for all these idiot and typical american prostitutes!
    They and lot of ugly people whose Hollywood are making would be paid in this life for all bad things they are make to the people and society!
    It is better for americans through away their garbage and excrements people in their own country!

  • Just stopping by

    This is why I love her.

  • Shakira

    Reese, you are such a class act. You always seem so open and accessible and very normal. I relate and I think many people relate. We never thought of you as a “closed-off or uptight person”. Yes, divorce is the harshest thing ever and you have managed to carry on with such grace.

    As for the wierd fellow Se in #4 & 5, obviously these are not your favorite websites so get off them and go elsewhere. If you don’t like the US, leave the site! I am not an American either but have some manners. Or perhaps you weren’t raised that way.

  • se

    Reese Witherspoon is only a dirty studio prostitute with lot of PR.
    The americans are dirty and they like dirty things!

  • teri

    You aren’t fooling anyone really shouldn’t you be tending to the husband and FATHER you were screwing around on? I can’t stand a woman who ruins a home with children.

  • se

    To speak about americans whose are assassins and bank robbers isn’t necessary to have manners.
    It isn’t necessarty to respect robbers, assassins and prostituts with frustrate marriage and Reese Witherpoon betray her husband with another man. How many man these women would sleeped to take good places in films!
    Nowadays the man are pig and haven’t any kind of hygiene and character to sleep with all these garbage woman. It is the cause that there are lot of mental retarded at present!

  • truth ALWAYS hurts

    she always looks pretty!

  • Jane

    Nice cover, she looks great.

  • jaime

    wow she looks good!

  • sharon

    i don’t even know how normal non-celebs mothers survive without nannies!! how must we all cope??

  • kate

    Great picture – I think she looks great.

  • fugly reese

  • newname


  • Blah Girls

    Reese looks great! She is such a great mother and so strong for getting through everything

  • fuck off reese

    reese is phony and fake

  • Arwen

    TO SE: are you sick or so frustrated that you spend whole day spitting and commenting this girl who is normal mother and actress?! Go and get some help and get your own life. What have you achieved so far????? With such poisonous character you will not go too far in your life. Detox your sick mind.

  • Patty

    se, I don’t know what country you are from or what culture you represent, but do the rest of the world a favor and KEEP YOUR DUBIOUS OPINIONS TO YOURSELF.

    As for Reese doing it all alone. That’s definitely rewriting history. Here’s her quote about Ryan: “… teaches Witherspoon how to change a diaper. ‘He completely potty-trained Ava by himself,”‘ Witherspoon tells PEOPLE in 2003. ‘He knows exactly how to negotiate a tantrum.’” She has a habit lately of making herself out as a martyr which as a divorced woman myself who had NONE of her advantages I find offensive.

  • Don

    Is that cover photoshopped or what. Jeeze.

  • Reese = Fag Hag

    Who calls their “boyfriend” FABULOUS? LOL

  • Oh please

    I don’t like Reese Witherspoon because she’s a lying PR prostitute
    Feel free to believe her BS PR stories

  • Jake Gyllenhaal is Fabulous!

    geez reese
    Like we don’t know that Jake is gay!


    Wow does she ever age. She looks really good! && this is why I admire her, she has always been so classy from start to finish. Never did you see her diss or get paid for talking about her divorce to Ryan.

    and for se.

    get a life. if you are going to comment there is no reason why you need to be so rude. I am not american but come on if you hate them so much stay off of american websites. also it would be nice if you learned how to spell correctly if you insist of insulting Americans. atleast do it properly.

  • Ha!

    se- comment if you want, but at least make sure what you say makes some sense? Otherwise, just post your nonsense once. The first indecipherable comment was enough to get your point across. Prostitute? Really?

  • Anon

    Se, baby where you been??? I love all the hysterical nonsense you spout. You are hilarious. And just as crazy as ever!!!!!

    Reese is a LOT cooler then I originally thought. And she is really very pretty. I like her taste in clothes most of the time, too. I really like her. And she is absolutely 1000000% correct. Jake is fantastico!!!! O.M.G. She gets to wake up next to that every day. First thing she sees in the morning, last thing she sees at night. Talk about sublime.

  • pixy

    Holy photoshop!

  • Iris

    I Iike Reese.
    She is intelligent, honest, and real.

  • geezzz

    We all know Reese doesn’t look like that in real life… photoshopped to the max. I couldn’t even recognized her on the cover.

  • beatrice

    Bring out the violins “”muttha f#cka”. None of these celebrities are down to earth, it’s all about the image. Some want the goody goody image, some want sexy, bad girl image,,,,they are all lead by their publicists and the people surrounding them giving them props, Reese is no different. She was on a late night talk show and she was so full of herself just like everyother actress in hollyweird!!!!

  • skclick

    This is pretty sad. Makes her out to be the young confused girl that she still is.

  • Ivana

    Anon agree with you…
    Jake is catch…. :)))
    He’ s got something adorable in his look and his smile…
    Reese is right… he is fabulous… lucky her.

  • Lacie

    I didnt even recognize her on this cover. Her face looks more like an Olsen twin than Reese. I like Reese, but, her face and chin look nothing like the photoshop that was done. Way over done.

  • hmmmm

    I like Reese and everything, but I have to say that this photoshoot is way over photoshopped. She looks great though.

  • hmmmm

    I like Reese and everything, but I have to say that this photoshoot is way over photoshopped. She looks great though.

  • a total fan

    Why do they always have to talk about their divorce. Tell me about the here and now. I don’t care to know what happen years ago. They have both moved on so WHY GO BACK TO THE PAST. JUST SAY NO COMMENT WHEN ASKED.


    Reese is photoshopped, just like her fauxmance with her fabulous fagola Jake.

  • slambang

    She is sooooooooo boooooooring.

    If I were dating Jake, you couldn’t stop me from talking about it! He’s so yummy!

  • slambang

    se, Please shut up!

  • athena

    She looks great!! She looks beautiful on this cover…almost like a model herself.
