Reese Witherspoon, who’s been dating that Jim Toth agent guy for awhile now, has confirmed to her fans that she, yes, is engaged. Toth apparently proposed over the Christmas break and Reese happily obliged.
Jim seems like a cool guy and what not, and he’s not hard on the eyes, but she used to wake up next to Jake Gyllenhaal. And she kicked him to the curb.
I’ll be honest – I heaved a humongous sigh of relief when the Witherspoon/Philippe marriage went belly-up, because ever since I Know What You Did Last Summer, I thought that Ryan Philippe was the height of deep-voiced pretentiousness and no one like that deserves to woo and win the heart of Miss Sweet Home Alabama. Except Jake Gyllenhaal.
And when she did move on to Jake, good old long-term relationship Jake Gyllenhaal, sparks of happiness were emitted from my cold, bitchy heart and I thought, ‘Yes, this is a celebrity relationship that I could really sink my teeth into.’ But you know what? It all comes to an end eventually.
So on that note, congratulations, Reese, Jim. But bear in mind my sage offering of advice that, indeed, nothing good on this earth lasts.
Can’t wait to see photos of your wedding!

What do you get for the girl who has everything? Well, what she hints for, obviously.
According to the The Sun, Jake Gyllenhaal flew to Nashville to spend this past weekend with his sweetheart Taylor Swift for her birthday. The two popped into a guitar shop to poke around and that’s when Taylor set her eyes on a Fender Gretsch signed by country music legend Chet Atkins. After creating a fuss over the guitar, Jake went back and purchased it for her. Originally it was supposed to be a token of his affection, but he later realized that it would be perfect as a birthday gift.
Smart play on Taylor’s part. It’s almost as if she couldn’t afford to buy fifty guitars on her own.

And of course girlfriend is wearing a knit hat with hearts on it. Would you expect anything less? Tcha. Thought not.
Earlier in the week, sources at People claimed that they’d seen Taylor and Jake out and about during the Thanksgiving holiday in New York City, where they ordered maple lattes at a nearby coffee bar. (And have you ever had a maple latte? Because they are to die for, and I’m not kidding when I say that I made four of them for myself this past Thanksgiving weekend, and I’m paying the price today.) Fast-forward two days and the plot thickens, as the couple was allegedly photographed at a restaurant in Nashville. The above photo is the apparent evidence that the couple does, in fact, exist. The picture was reportedly sent in to Perez Hilton by a reader who claimed that, yeah, the photo is the real deal and not a hoax manufactured somewhere on the ‘net.
So, fine readers – the pic. Real, or faked by some people who had some bored Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal-looking friends who were too poor to spend all of their money on Black Friday, so they decided to take a crazy picture at a random restaurant in Nashville instead?
I’m going to go with ‘real,’ because I so want it to be, and because the two in the photo look just exhausted by a general depletion of bodily fluids; you can just tell that these two bumped uglies all Thanksgiving and Black Friday-weekend long, and you know what? Good on them.

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal apparently spend a great deal of time naked in their new movie Love and Other Drugs, so naturally they’re going to get naked while promoting it as well. Well, not naturally, actually. I feel like I’ve seen plenty of actors promote movies where they’re in the buff for a good portion of it while keeping their clothes on, but hey! You know, good for them. Good for them for being so comfortable with their bodies.
Anywhodickie, the pair have three covers of Entertainment Weekly coming out. Which ‘naked + content’ copy are you going to pick up?

“Hang on, hang on, I have to say something! I have been Jake’s onscreen love interest for years, all right? You keep the conversation to me and only me, otherwise I’m going to get nasty!”
Thank goodness that Anne Hathaway spoke out for Jake Gyllenhaal this past weekend at a press conference for their new movie, Love and Other Drugs, ’cause I’m sure that he’s just totally unable to do it himself. During the conference, Jake was – clearly – asked whether or not he was carrying on a relationship with Taylor Swift, and that gracious old Anne Hathaway interjected with that explosion of information up there.
Um, you go, girl?

Yeah, ‘Swyllengift.’ You heard it here first. Totally made it up myself. Before coffee. So I haven’t even had a breath’s time to decide whether or not it sucks, or if I’m going to start referring to Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift as … Swyllengift. I mean, fuck. It’s better than Brangelina … Or worse, Bennifer. Do y’all remember the original Bennifer (Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez)? Those were some great days for gossip. The really seedy, voyeuristic part of me would like to see them both leave their spouses and hook back up, complete with pink and yellow diamonds and furs and the way that fake baking looks on Irish boys with large jaws who try too hard. I mean, marriage with Garner is pretty much almost out of the picture anyway, isn’t it?
Anyway, half of the couple I’m most fascinated with these days (Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal) appeared on today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show and of course, Ellen pushed Taylor for details on the relationship in that oh-so-coy way that she has. From People:
“Are you optimistic about love? How do you feel about love right now?” DeGeneres, addressing the topic at hand, asks Swift on The Ellen DeGeneres Show episode airing Monday.
“I’m always optimistic about love,” responds Swift 20.
Confirming Swift’s stance, DeGeneres repeats, “So you’re always optimistic about love?”
“Yes, always, sometimes,” says Swift, beginning to backtrack slightly.
“But right now you are?” asks DeGeneres.
“Well, why wouldn’t anyone be?” says Swift, before DeGeneres boldly states, “Especially if your boyfriend is Jake Gyllenhaal, because he is very handsome.”
But, DeGeneres concludes, “Y’all are just hanging out though, right?”
Swift acknowledges that she and Gyllenhaal were photographed together in New York last weekend. As the singer says to DeGeneres, “You have a picture of us on the [TV] screen, don’t you?”
“Right,” admits DeGeneres. “But it’s just y’all hanging out – this does not prove anything. I’m just saying he’s adorable and I like him very much, and so if that is the case that he’s your boyfriend, I think that’s fantastic.”
So, good. More of these non-details that continuously confirm that Swift and Gyllenhaal are dry humping, because I don’t see Taylor givin’ it up just yet. And by the way, Donnie Darko was on television last night. That a fucked up movie or what?
