Reese Witherspoon Needs Jake Gyllenhaal to Wipe for Her

How else to explain the eleven minutes the two spent in a first-class bathroom on a flight from Frankfurt to LA?

Three hours into the flight, Reese reportedly got up from her seat and walked forward to the toilet. Two minutes later Jake got up and allegedly walked into the same bathroom. “I started timing them – they were together in there for 11-minutes,” the witness told Star.

Jake came out of the bathroom first, and Reese reportedly followed him three-minutes later. “When they each walked by, it seemed like everyone in their entourage took pains to look away.

Seriously, I’d be grossed out, too. It’s really hard to thoroughly wash your hands in those airplane bathrooms!

Reese Witherspoon Keeps Her Political Views to Herself

“I have a real aversion to talking about my own personal politics just because I feel the influence sometimes, I see the influence of celebrity on our culture. And to think that my opinion is any more informed than anyone else’s or taken as thus is erroneous. I’m just like everybody else. I’m learning, reading, I’m trying to figure it out.”

Reese Witherspoon, the the Associated Press, on why she keeps her personal politics to herself.

Challenge to all Evil Beet readers: Use both the words “thus” and “erroneous” in a sentence today. Then you’ll be as cool as Reese Witherspoon.

Reese and Jake: Broken Up Yet Again

These two just love the drama.

“This is the harshest split they’ve had,” says a source. “Reese told Jake it’s best they don’t talk at all.”

But don’t expect it to be over forever.

“They’re a rocky couple,” says one insider. “It would not be a shock if they got back together.”

Hollywood’s Cutest Couple Giving It Another Go?

Reese Ryan and Eva

Rumor is Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are working out their differences and getting close to getting back together. Page Six says that they have been closer as of late and even though their breakup was pretty brutal, with Ryan admitting he had cheated on Reese, they are spending a lot of quality time together.

“They met for lunch this week at the Votre Sante health-food restaurant, a regular Brentwood haunt for Reese on San Vicente. And they’re going on runs together around the Brentwood Country Club. Both are regular, dedicated runners. Running is a very healing, meditative thing, so maybe it will work its magic on them.”

I have no idea how running fits into this. The last time I went running with my boyfriend by the time I caught up with him I ended up tripping on his foot and falling on my face. That ended our romantic running.

I hope this works out for them. Neither of them really has had a high profile romance since their split. Ryan has shown that he is a devoted dad to their kids and they were just so darn cute as a couple. Ryan’s PR person obviously denied this report but I’m guessing we might see more of these two together in the future.
