Reese Witherspoon and boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal have reportedly split.
Us Weekly reports that Gyllenhaal has been pushing for marriage with Witherspoon, but she “felt pressure to wed again and wasn’t ready.”
Witherspoon was married to actor Ryan Philippe with whom she has two kids – Ava (10) and Deacon (6).
According to the mag, a source claimed that Witherspoon “couldn’t give Jake enough, and she got cold feet.” The source added, “From the beginning, Jake wanted all of her, and she knew he deserved someone who could give him that. He wanted to be together at all times, and it became a lot for her to juggle with work and the kids. When it comes down to it, she isn’t ready to get married and he is.”
The source also claimed that Witherspoon broke it off in early December, but it was “mutual and amicable.”
The reason? Aside from the marriage issue, the source said that Reese felt “like she wasn’t giving her kids enough (energy)” because of her relationship with Gyllenhaal.
The two actors have plenty of things to keep them busy. Jake Gyllenhaal will probably be promoting his films “Brothers” and “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” while Reese Witherspoon will be working on a 2010 James L. Brooks film alongside Jack Nicholson, Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson.
