According to the National Enquirer, Jake Gyllenhaal has proposed to Reese Witherspoon. And she said no.
The couple first met on the set of “Rendition” and hid their relationship until the film started to bomb at the box office.
A source that claims Gyllenhaal proposed said that Witherspoon held back for the sake of her kids.
“She is madly in love with Jake, but her divorce just became final, and she doesn’t want to rush into anything. Reese wants to take things very slowly because of her two young children. She doesn’t want anything to upset or disrupt them. It took her a while to introduce them to Jake – she didn’t want them to know they were a couple until they were definitely serious about each other.”
Actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have put an end to their relationship after more than seven years of marriage.
Their publicists issued a joint statement on Monday confirming the split, according to Reuters.
“We are saddened to announce that Reese and Ryan have decided to formally separate,” the statement read. “They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time.”
They married in June 1999 after working together on the film “Cruel Intentions.” They had reportedly met at Witherspoon’s 21st birthday party before production commenced on the risque movie.
According to TMZ, a source said that the split isn’t the result of a single event, but is more “cumulative.” The website also reported that Witherspoon has been in touch with the divorce lawyer who handled splits for Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Marie Presley.
Witherspoon, 30, and the 32-year-old Phillippe have two children together: 7-year-old Ava and 3-year-old Deacon.
