Jake G Uses The Girlfriend Word


Have you ever heard Jake Gyllenhaal use the word girlfriend to describe Reese Witherspoon? I never have and I don't think anyone else ever has either. To get him to start using it all you had to do was say he and Reese split and the next thing you know he tosses it out at press conference.

Yesterday Jake was promoting Brothers and said this in response to a question from Grazia Australia. "Obviously I exist in my girlfriend's world and my sister's world in a different way, but it's opened my heart and I feel much more grown up and want to be grown up as a result of it."

Wow. Why have we never heard this before? Reese has never said that either. Not in one interview, press conference by either of them. Never accidentally slipped out. Nothing. Now it does? The week after the breakup stories? Please.

I can live with the idea of him being gay, I still love Rupert Everett in Midsummer Nights Dream.... but come on, grow a pair already

captivagrl said...

well, she is a GIRL and a FRIEND, i guess.

I just don't understand what's in to for Reese...

MizCaramel said...

I read Reese is into girls so it's the perfect arrangement for them both... who knows why anybody does anything, poor kids to be taught so young to live a lie.

i think Reese is into Reese and can't be bothered to have a mere man - and if she had been single all the Jennifer Aniston stories would've been out there every time she bumped a dude in the street. She can make movies and have control in her life and hang out with a friend. Not a bad arrangement - if you don't miss the peen

So, is this his way of denying the rumors of a breakup?

I still think he is bi and she was into Ryan P in a big way.

Jake recently guested on KCRW's Guest DJ Project:

When I first heard his voice on the radio I had no idea it was Jake... sounded so weak, baby, blah. Then when his name was revealed, I was actually stunned. And now to read a quote in which he states that he "wants to be grown up"... I feel for the guy. He seems like a kid in a man's body. Good luck with the next Reese or Grey Goose or whomever...

BTW, KCRW is the BEST radio station. Check it out!

Maybe he means girlfriend and sister in an entirely different way.

I've thought for a while that Reese was the answer to Enty's blind about two A-list actresses that slept with the same woman. One was known to be into girls and was revealed to be Angelina. The other was supposed to be a shocker.

angie said...

I thought he was coming out today...finally. oh, GF, ok, yeah, right.

What a sad way to live--everything about your personal life all invented to appease the public who shills out for your product.

No wonder all of H'wood is in therapy..."who am I, REALLY?" must be an oft-asked couch question.

pomme said...

she's pretty,clever,has a good job:she could find a real boyfriend!

PR spinning is easy! Australian tabloid fiction turned into Us Weekly "report":

Source - Australian tabloid Grazia
"Just 10 minutes after walking into a Beverly Hills hotel suite to talk about his new film, Brothers, Jake Gyllenhaal uses the one word that finally ends rampant speculation about his private life: he refers to Reese Witherspoon as his “girlfriend”.

Jake, 28, was happy to talk to Grazia about the children in his life; his 3-year-old niece Ramona (daugher of actress Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Reese’s children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe; Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6. “I’ve learned so much from the kids in my life and somehow they just become the centre of your life and the way you look at things,” he says. “Obviously I exist in my girlfriend’s world and my sister’s world in a different way, but it’s opened my heart and I feel much more grown up and want to be grown up as a result of it.”

Us Weekly
"Merkins aside, Gyllenhaal proved his maturity at a press conference earlier that day when he talked about growing up because of the children in his life.

"I've learned so much from the kids in my life, and somehow they just become the center of your life and the way you look at things," he told reporters in reference to his niece Ramona and Witherspoon's children, Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6. "Obviously I exist in my girlfriend's world and my sister's world in a different way, but it's opened my heart and I feel much more grown up and want to be grown up as a result of it."

One more important detail - Jake refuses to answer personal questions.

Tweet from Jason Matheson, host of the Weekend Buzz and Entertainment Reporter for FOX 9:

jasonmatheson: Just got an email warning me not to ask Jake Gyllenhaal personal questions when I interview him tomorrow - I heart Jake - so I won't :)

Yeah, Reese is very in control. Type A, but I'm that way too. But I do like intelligent men who are interesting, and Jake is def that .

Gay or straight Jake is H-O-T.

I don't understand why his PR people would want to cover up his homosexualtiy anyway, since there are lots of awesome (and VERY CUTE) guys who are gay.

I remember a BI that outed Angelina Jolie as one of a pair of A-Listers who were having an affair with the same women, but were different as night and day. I immediately thought the other was Reese.

My GOD, you don't?

Then you don't know Hollyweird very well do you? Studios are TERRIFIED of Teh Gayness (even though there's a lot of it about). It loses them big bucks made from screaming fangirlies invested in their heroes being straight, finding out that they're gay. Their money also comes from the Red States, traditionally a conservative audience who are largely anti-gay in many places.
