OK! Magazine has photos of Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal holding hands after stepping off an airplane arriving at LAX. The mag also reports they were smooching. Ooooooh, I’ll be sure to tell Tommy in eighth period study hall. And US Weekly, long proponents of this on-off relationship, will most likely make next week’s cover story title, “ON!” in giant magenta lettering. Jk, it will be another Britney cover, but maybe Denise Richards will try a “my side of the divorce” tell-all. US said:
“Are they making it official? On today?s Ellen DeGeneres Show, Reese Witherspoon finally spoke out about her on-again beau (and “Rendition” co-star) Jake Gyllenhaal. When DeGeneres told Witherspoon, 31, Gyllenhaal, 26, was cute, the Oscar winner gushed, ?He?s great!? The day before, new photos surfaced of Witherspoon and Gyllenhaal (dressed in matching black T-shirts and jeans) strolling hand-in-hand and smooching at Los Angeles International Airport October 22.
The pair had been returning from Rome, where they were promoting their new film. On October 19, Witherspoon, 31, was spotted resting her head on Gyllenhaal?s shoulder while walking through the streets as they enjoyed some downtime. Looks like the couple may be comforting each other even more from now on: Their buzzed-about CIA thriller bombed at the bomb office, coming in at No. 9 with $4.2 million.”
Ouch. The same weekend that “30 Days of Night” topped the box office? Well, at least they can cry and cuddle together. Until next week. When they’re over again, because “Reese just can’t make a relationship a priority in her life right now” or “Jake mentioning he’s been on the floor of a men’s bathroom does nothing for the gay rumors.” Sigh. Hollywood hookups are so tiring.
