Details Behind The Jake/Reese Split

Details Behind The Jake/Reese Split

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal officially pulled the plug on their three-year relationship over a series of phone calls earlier this month.

Why over the phone? Jake has been in Pittsburgh the past three months shooting his new movie, Love And Other Drugs. Reese has been busy filming How Do You Know? in Los Angeles.

“It broke his heart,” an insider reveals to Us Weekly. “[They] fought constantly in the past few months [but] no one cheated. There was no drama.”

“She felt pressured to wed again but she wasn’t ready,” another insider adds. “She couldn’t give Jake enough and she got cold feet. Jake wanted all of her. She really worried that they didn’t have enough in common… He was great with the kids (Ava and Deacon), but she felt like he didn’t get the whole scope of what that entailed.”

    just some info Says:

    Ted C has long been putting out bogus rumors about stars.
    He spent years doing exactly what he is doing to Jake now to Ben Affleck. When good will hunting came out and friends Ben & Matt hit the scene, when both boston boys dared to attend the academy awards with their mothers, well that’s when Ted started is gay rumors for them. He kept them going for a really long time, thru afflecks relationships with GP & JL and MD’s with WR & MD.. Ted kept it going, even when both men about to get married. Well, now they are both married and both have 2 kids as well. Both are still great friends and didn’t let Ted’s crappy rumors wreck their friendship. Ted never talks about them or his prior mission to label them something they were not, he just no longer addresses it, he has moved on to a new conquest which I’m sure will end up the same way.

    Jake & Reese are way A-list and I’m sure that there isn’t anyone on the board that has access to them and their story. So I doubt you’ll get any firsthand account from people who know them or have been in their pressence on here…… BUT…
    There are lots of people who blogged and do blog on this board who have and continue to be in the presence of Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols and know that they are a real couple, not some made up PR move like some would love you to believe.

    Who’s up next for Jake???
    There are a few single ladies in Hollywood he can hook-up with.

    Reese I think your going to be sorry, Jake is a kind and responsible man, your X husband didn”t show you any respect when he cheated on you, once a cheater always a cheater.

    Jake is gay Says:

    Closeted gay actors need beards.
    Jake tried to make himself look straight and failed – he and Reese had zero chemistry and never looked as a real couple.

    the reason why he’s gay according 2 ppl is because he was in brokeback….really…

    @just some info: So if a man gets married and has children he can’t be gay, huh? I’m not saying Affleck and/or Damon are gay. I’m saying the argument you’re using is bogus. Listen, you’re going to have to accept that a certain percentage of the population is gay and that applies to Hollywood actors too. Yet, if you examine the actors out of the closet, it’s considerably lower than expected. Ergo. Some of them are lieing. And some of them take the lie so far as to have wives/or girlfriends (or husbands/boyfriends) that they hide behind. And remember, these are professional actors. They can fake it in public a lot better than you or I.
