Reese Witherspoon & Jake Gyllenhaal Still Together

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal are still very much together, Jake‘s rep confirms to

Reese, 33, and Jake, 28, have been a couple since starring together in the 2007 drama thriller Rendition.

Reese was singing the praises of Jake as late as last month in the November issue of InStyle: “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.”

News of the breakup was first reported by People.

    Well, if kneepads says it, it must be true. They only suckle from official spokespeople. Kinda kills those wedding rumors, doesn’t it?

    People’s been wrong before.

  • Lila

    Well she was just his beard. I don’t know why she was with him though. Maybe just that Jake was less of a douche than Ryan Phillipe.



  • Memei

    awww what a shame. Well onwards and upwards….

  • shoe89

    is it really true…it is really sad

  • liv

    Noo that sucks, they seem so sweet and like they had a healthy relationship

  • heat

    that is so sad, they were adorable together

  • **JAMIE**

    i liked them together, but Jake has the worst taste in women. All blonde and unattractive such as Reese Witherspoon and Kirsten Dunst gag!

  • Shanghai Guide

    Yes sad indeed, they really seemed to complement each other well.

  • sarah

    noooo! i liked them together!!

  • sofia

    I’m actually surprised about this! They seemed pretty happy together. Too bad. But that’s life.

  • elisilla

    I neved liked them as a couple, they are in different stages of life, and I don’t mean the age difference…

  • Pattycake

    @Lila: I’ve been waiting for the obigatory jab at Ryan. Come on, this has nothing to do with RP, give him a break.

  • Great news!

    Jake deserves better beard,
    Reese is too old, fugly and dumb.

  • Marieke

    I don’t get why everybody thinks Jake is gay, I honestely disagree!

    I think it’s sad IF they had split up, cute couple. But perhaps it just gossip

  • gay and the beard

    Thank God that boring fakery is finished.

  • Ashleen

    Sad, they are cute together

  • Miss Anonymous

    @Great news!:

    She’s not, she’s not, she’s not.

  • Georgie

    So I guess he’ll be on the prowl for a new beard. Let’s see… rumors of a Natalie Portman hookup can begin anytime now, they have a movie to promote after all.

  • UV

    “Such Crazy People, Why Did They Hook Up In The First Place?”
    They didn’t hook up, they signed the fauxmance contract after Ryan dumped Reese for Abbie.
    That was great PR for dumped Reese, gay Jake and their movie Rendition.



  • good news


  • notbusy

    I’m not surprised if it’s true. Something always seemed off with this couple. Like he was a rebound for her. And he didn’t really seem all that into her. It was either time to get married or split up. I’m not surprised.

  • ohnooooo

    Gyllenspoon moved to splitsville? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

  • ugly

    finally he can now be fully gay…LOL

  • Stephanie

    Jake finally grew his balls back and ended the showmance before Reese totally killed his career. Hope he can bounce back from being turned into boring, pu**y whipped Mr. Witherspoon. He should have never bearded and just continued to dodge gay rumors.

  • Kate

    I’m so happy about this, it was time for Jake to dump that biittchy beard.

  • Emily L

    Is he going back to Austin?

  • Pattycake

    Jake needs to concentrate on his career, not his image. I’ve seen clips from his new film, Brothers, and he is phenominal.

  • Emily

    what? nooooooooo thats so sad!

  • Liz86000

    Oh no! They were so cute together! Poor Reese..

  • Jake dumped the beard


  • anonymous

    I lose all respect for any woman who enters into a contractual relationship to beard for a closeted gay actor. I kind of feel sorry for the closeted one, who feels they need it for their career. But as for the beard, they are only doing it for extra cash that they don’t even need in the first place. Reese is supposedly one of the worst phony bitches in Hollywood, and I have lost all respect for her.

  • ellie’

    I think they made a wonderful couple.. Hope they work things out..

  • Violet

    Oh no, the seemed made for each other :(

  • T.R.

    Jake is NOT and NEVER was gay.
    This was just a rumor that was started by someone that got blown way out of proportion and ended up being spread all over the internet….like all rumors do.
    Plus is didn’t help that Ted Casablanca who works for E! News is like the biggest idiot ever and is ALWAYS starting rumors about male actors and calling them gay.
    If anyone on here had even a little bit of common sense, they would realize that the rumors about Jake being gay are just rumors and that their is NO truth to them whatsoever.
    Practically more than half of the male actors in Hollywood have been called gay at one point or another including A-listers such as George Clooney and even Brad Pitt.
    This sh*t needs to stop and people really need to find something better to do with their lives than contribute to rumors.
    There is nothing wrong with being gay, but some of you make it seem like its a bad thing…especially when you sit there and call actors gay and start questioning their sexuality while going on and on about how they should “come out.” Most of these actors who have been victims of such rumors have never even given any indication as to them possibly being gay, and so it amuses me when people start believing a couple of idiots who have nothing better to do then to start sh*t about specific celebs.
    As for his split from Reese….who the hell knows whats going on there. But I already know that several of Jake’s fan who don’t like Reese will be happy to hear this.

  • Liz86000

    You guys are nuts! Before he was with Reese, he was with Kirsten Dunst! A WOMAN! Wake up, guys! Broke back montain was just a MOVIE! He is an ACTOR! Neither he (nor Heith Ledger) are/was gay!

  • Happy day!

    @Violet: LOL!

    They had zero chemisty and looked fake from day one – because they were fake from day one.

  • Laura

    They seemed so happy together, I hope this isn’t true, tabloids can be wrong, even if it has been confirmed,

  • Amy

    oh noooooo!! it can’t be true! they were such a wonderful couple.
    hope its not true.

  • Anon

    Hmm. I was suspicious as to all the gay rumors..but something about this break-up rings true.
    Look, I believe Reese does want to have more children..but I doubt if she wants to get into a full fledge family affair with a man for who may not be gay but possibly bi-sexual. Being his beard was fun for bouncing back her image after a divorce, but now that time has passed and if it is true he is into men…why would she settle for a relationship knowing that eventually he will want to be with men..and will most likely act on those desires….splitting now is better than dragging this out.

  • Anon

    I don’t think it’s true. I think People magazine is wrong.

  • verywellsaid

    @T.R.: very well said, people that are trying to out folks make it very bad for those that are @<a href=”/2009/11/29/reese-witherspoon-jake-gyllenhaal-split/comment-page-2/#comment-16516472really gay, like it is a freaking pariah or something!!!geesh people get a life…@Liz86000:Thanks for saying this also…I mean what proof do any of you have that this guy is gay? @anonymous: can you forward us a copy of said contract….Thanks

  • Jen

    I saw this a long time coming

  • Jake is gay

    … and there is nothing wrong with that.
    Bearding is nothing to be proud of.
