Or did it ever really begin? Needless to say, this won’t do much to discourage the Jakey gay gay rumours.
After what was reported to be a super undercover romance involving stealthy dinners and militarily planned double car travel, Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal have apparently decided to take a break… even though just weeks ago the tabloids were reporting that their love had hit “serious” levels.
Apparently she wasn’t ready and wanted to cool it off feeling perhaps that it was too soon after her split from Ryan and his ubiquitous beater.
But now we’re left to wonder – was it ever a relationship to begin with? Or simply an early effort to drum up interest in their Rendition, due out this Fall? Then of course there’s the suggestion of “bearding” – that she stepped in to give a homo a hand. That Jake needed America’s Sweetheart to dispel the persistent gay speculation.
As I’ve said time and again, have never heard anything to suggest that Jake wants to play with Tom Cruise. Regarding whether or not their dealings were legit – there were indeed clandestine dinners and take out, and he was as I’ve reported on several occasions seen driving away from her gated community but the intensity of their connection was likely heavily exaggerated.
Or… if we really want to get conspiratorial, could be a deliberate leak to throw off the press and the paps. Also very plausible.
Ps. There have been recent rumblings that despite Reese’s post-split makeover, her confidence has indeed been shaken over the demise of her marriage, not only because of the failed union but also as a result of Ryan’s rumoured rampant philandering.
Trust issues are a bitch.
