Reese Witherspoon & Jake Gyllenhaal Split Confirmed

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal have called it quits – for real this time.

Sources confirm to that Reese, 33, and Jake, 28, have parted ways but the split was mutual and amicable. They took a short break late last month, got back together but appear to have ended it for good this time.

The twosome has been together since co-starring in the 2007 drama thriller Rendition.

The break-up news was first reported by GossipCop.

    Well, I wish them the best.

    Thank God Jake finally got himself out of one of the worst showmances ever. Maybe Jake will now be able to concentrate on his career and not on scheduled photo ops for the tabloids.

  • christine

    i dont believe this

    them seem so happy together

  • Jello Head


  • huh

    oh really. the first split report was probably true, but i’m always wary of these “sources”

  • b

    aw, they where so cute together!

  • wtf

    Toothy just come out already!

  • ivanka

    i think is false

  • GoodGirl

    Will this split give more credit to the rumor of him being gay?!
    Hell YES!

  • J

    I hope it’s false!

  • Lauren

    I hope it’s false as well! I loved them together.

  • vi

    awww thats a shame, they were really cute!! but i wish them the best they are probably really busy but who knows

  • fresh

    Yes!! Now he’s all mine. jk—That’s too bad they seemed cute together.

  • Sam

    Broke up? Witherbeard & Toothy Tile were never “together”!! So is Jake finally coming out of the closet or is he on the look out for a new beard??

  • lola


    I know! We’ll still love you…

  • anon.

    It can’t be true. They were soooo cool together! I loved them! They seemed to get it right! I hope it’s not true. I hope that maybe they will get back together. I saw pictures of Reese and she looks so sad and unhappy. When she was with Jake she was all lit up and fun!

    He’s not gay. How old are you again?

  • hal

    That God if it’s true. My pleasure has nothing to do with whether or not Jake is secretly gay but more to do with the simple fact they were B-O-R-I-N-G together! Jake isn’t even 30 years old yet but he comes off as an old married man with Reese and those kids of her’s. At his age he would be regarded as a talented sex symbol instead he comes off looking and acting like Ward Cleaver. Not just personally but also in terms of his career. Image wise Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t all that exciting outside of his personal fanbase and I think in a way his romance with Reese didn’t help. Yeah I know. His private life should be his private life. But this is Hollywood and every aspect of a star’s life contribute to their success. Jake is too wholesome, his too nice, he takes himself far too seriously. He’s a recognizable star but at the moment I wouldn’t rank him in the top ten of major male Hollywood stars. Lighten up honey. Make yourself sexier, more desirable. Making POP was a smart more. Let’s hope the film is a monster hit because boy do you NEED one!

  • newdawn72

    She is so mature, beautiful, and intelligent. He seemed like he was more devoted than her ex but she needs a mature man like an Ari, or a Clark or etc.etc.etc.

  • hag

    where is that tick-tok chick……..tik toking for the wrong couple again……

  • Pattycake

    Well, this has been a long time coming. I haven’t seen pix of Jake sans split except at public events where he is all professional actor. But the pix of Reese have me almost feeling sorry for her because she looks so unhappy. Jake is NOT going to come out, peeps. Why would he invest two years into this showmance if he was going to come out? I admit that I would have bet that these two would have kept up the show for the release of Jake’s films. That they didn’t makes it sound like it wasn’t an amiable split.

  • Brokeback

    He can do better, no man wants to marry an old hag with children.

  • Gotta say

    @hal: There’s a lot of truth in what you’re saying.

    How old are you, ten and a half?

  • Em

    Aw, I’m so shocked. They seemed so good together, like they really were in love. I hope it’s not true. But if it’s for the best, than it is what it is.

    Sorry about double post. Jared’s server is wack tonight.

  • Emma

    Congrats on the excellent scoop, Jared!

  • Pattycake

    @Jill: Yeah, Reese is only 3 or 4 years older than Jake. I agree Brokeback is talking nonsense. But the divide between these two seems greater than the actual years. They seem so ill matched. It’s been a hard sell to most people from the get go, although some people are incredibly gullible. Have you listened to an interview with Jake? He’s basically a big kid, no matter what his age. And Reese tries to come off as fun loving but never quite succeeds, for a good reason. She’s not.

  • lisa

    People reported this first then their reps came out and said no, I think People had it right from the beginning

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    ahahahahahahahahha… ahahahahahahahaahahah… ahahahahahahahaahaha

  • Caught

    Only a matter of days until Toothy Tile walks out of the closet

  • purple


  • coco

    People always gets it right!

  • xxx

    Oh no…

  • Gasol16

    Didn’t just Jared have this listed a month ago? Yes…He did. I will believe it when it actually comes into the media they broke up. I’m quite suspicious this is a cover up scandal for another couple. But, If they actually broke up. Oh well….Life goes on. So what?

  • Bill

    How stupid are people that post comments here, ‘ hope it’s false’,
    retards JJ reports “split confirmed” that means for you too slow to get it, that their publicists are saying ‘ yes people magazine was telling the truth last week and now we are confirming it and when we denied it then we were lying”.

  • boohoo

    Meanwhile Ryan is still with his whore! Must be love after all.

  • Molly

    He’s gross. Glad she got rid of the KD Lang lookalike.

  • to boohoo

    @boohoo: You’re a jerk for dragging Ryan into this discussion. This has nothing to do with him and Abbie.

  • AGA

    Brokeback—Reese is only 33,hardly a old hag–unless you are 15!
    I dont think Jake is Gay–he will have a new Girl soon enough!!

  • Ava

    It’s about time Jake lost the beard. I guess they thought they were going to be the next Brangelina, but too bad for them anybody with half a brain can see he is as gay as ever and she is as witchy and bitchy as ever.

  • born yesterday

    Who is this idiot who is going on and on with people’s ages? Everyone is entitled to an opinion whether they are 10 or 100! Moron.

  • Miss Anonymous

    People who keep thinking Jake is gay – they are living in a dream world. Just because a relationship doesn’t work doesn’t mean someone is gay!

  • the joker is here


    Well most of the time. People usually gets their info straight from the celebs or their reps, so they are mostly right. But not always as sometimes People reverts to more tabloidish ways for sales. But I do agree that People is the most reliable fact teller of the weeklies, the mag at least tries 70% of the time to do some fact checking and does not always photoshop and outright lie 100% of the time like Star, In Touch and the other tabloids. And unlike Nat Enq People does not break the law and buy hospital records and such.

    @Miss Anonymous:

    That’s about the stupidest comment I have read in a while. Jeez!

  • Katiee

    Toothy just come out already! [2]

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    @Miss Anonymous: shut up! ..ahahahahahahahaha.. you’re gay too! ..ahahahahahaha..

  • sienna

    I knew it looking at the recent pictures of two. She seemed so sad in her trip to Europe. Her eyes were giving her away. And there has been no picture together for a while. I was thinking they had parted the ways and here comes the news.

  • oy

    That’s a shame. It must suck to break up just before the holidays.
