Reese Witherspoon to InStyle: Jake is a Great Cook!

Reese Witherspoon to InStyle: Jake is a Great Cook!

Reese Witherspoon finally opens up about the love of her life, Jake Gyllenhaal, in the November 2009 issue of InStyle. Here are highlights from the 33-year-old actress:

On moving on from her divorce with Ryan Phillippe: “You have to keep it together for your kids and for yourself too. I’m trying to learn from the things that have happened in my life, live more in the moment, and have more fun… Going to more concerts. Jake and I went to Coachella this year.”

On cooking with her man: “Jake is a great cook—he does a lot. We spend the weekends outside L.A, in Ojai, where I have a farmhouse. We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it. It reminds me of where I grew up in Tennessee.”

On struggling to raise her two kids, Ava and Deacon: “Sometimes it’s really difficult for me, being far away from home. I never imagined that my children wouldn’t grow up next door to my brother’s children. Or my mom and dad wouldn’t constantly be around. At least I have a lot of southern friends in L.A.—I gravitate toward them.”

“Jake is a great cook” – THAT’S opening up about her life with Jake?!! That is fcukin hilarious. The beard and that magazine are both pathetic, absolutely pathetic.

@WTF – you seem to miss the point – JJ is about celebrities and style – checking the dresses, shoes and hairstyles is only part of celeb gossip – cooking and cleaning are improtant too.

@Shooper: …. talk about missing the point..LOL

# 6

Yes she needs to learn how to not to be a control freak and a stuck up b*tch.

# 7

What’s up with her left arm? Probably bad lightening, but it looks ridiculous.

# 8

She looks great! That color looks good on her. She and Jake seem very happy together though she probably shouldn’t have mentioned her farm b/c the paps will run out there.

@Anna: Photoshop disaster…

the beard and the gay @ 10/21/2009 at 6:16 am

Reese Witherspoon and her fauxmance BS is so boring.

She is so unbelievably dull and stuck up.

“Oh i’m sooo down to earth, i don’t want to be a celebrity blah blah blah!”

She just seems so utterly boring and I feel sorry for Jake for been dragged down with 2 kids that aren’t even his and this robotic and completely uninteresting woman.

Everyone knows Jake is the subject of many blind items saying he’s gay.
She just his beard and get publicity talking about him.

I like Reese and Jake such a cute couple. Ryan sure messed up when he cheated with that Abby girl, now they both look miserable. To the poster who said she’s stuck up, no it’s called being mature and taking responsibility when the other parent checks out.

@Carrie: agree! jake should get young woman, not a widowed plus 2 babies who following her like piece of ****!

You can say what you like, but Ryan is a good father, and those are his kids too. I don’t see this Jake romance going anywhere. He’s her toy, her plaything. But maybe one day he will want children and she is too old and has kids who have a good father. I think she is infatuated with Jake and running around because she didn’t run around with Ryan. So now she is having fun, but Jake probably will get tired of all the partying and want his own family.

Hey! They went to a concert, tooo!!!!!

I have no comment to make on Reese’s relationship – but that body does not belong to her – its disgusting that magazines sculp bodies with the click of a mouse and make these celebrities look anorexic.

Ryan and Reese both seem happier and the kids are not being tortured by fame seeking crazy parents so I say good for both of them. I know Reese’s fans like to rip Ryan apart but seriously he seems like the best case scenario for an exhusband.

holy photoshop @ 10/21/2009 at 8:03 am

Wow they gave her a deformed arm but she did get a waist and some cleavage out of the deal.

These things never work. Ryan has a young girl friend. She will want babies of her own! How can she even try to take care of kids so big as Reese’s. And Reese is the mother. She is in her 30s and Jake is in his 20s. Ryan is the oldest of all! His girl friend is young, too. All these fake magazine articles cover up the true facts. All this will end with Abby and Jake being heart broken. Jake has nothing of his own.

That entire article is the biggest bunch of BS ever. Love of her life? Please, the best she can say is he’s a great cook? She should have said he is her best shopping girlfriend. Struggling to raise her kids? Ryan has them half the time and she has a full time, live in nanny. Her Ojai place reminds her of Tennesse? She grew up in a well to do area without a farm in sight. She keeps trying to sound like Ms. Nice Southern Girl, but she is the total opposite. The only struggling she has to do is juggling bearding photo ops.

Reese’s and Jake’s “relationship” is a media hoax, and thry should be prosecuted for deceiving the public, just like the Heenies “Balloon boy” are.. Trust me, this is no different.

Well said Debbie.

She wants to do only 1 movie a year? More like it’s only 1 movie a year she gets and Jake gets 1 movie in 2 years. I guess they grow cucumbers and tomatoes the rest of the time. LOL

She is the biggest phony ever and will say anything to keep up the “southern belle” image.
