Or did they?
All the big celebrity news outlets are saying that the two broke up, but aren’t giving any more details because, they say, they have no further details at this point. The couple met in 2007 on the set of the movie Rendition, and it wasn’t long afterwards that the two were seen canoodling off screen. By the summer of 2008, there wasn’t much doubt about whether the two were together. They were seen on an extended summer holiday in Paris, then out for a stroll in Marrakech the next month to check out the bazaar shopping.
Despite reports that 33-year-old Witherspoon and 28-year-old Gyllenhaal have split up, their reps say that it isn’t true, which is the opposite of what a “source close to the couple” says. “They are still together” was the statement that came from reps Nanci Ryder and Carrie Byalick.
Regardless of the state of their togetherness romantically, they are definitely separated geographically. Witherspoon is in London to make an address to the House of Commons about a domestic violence charity initiative that Witherspoon represents along with cosmetic giant Avon. Gyllenhaal is busy shooting a movie titled Love and Other Drugs in Pittsburgh.
