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.
