It is all well in Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal's love relationship, which recently was claimed to have been on the rocks, with her even praising him for being "very supportive". In an interview with Vogue magazine's November 2008 issue, which features her in the cover, she also opened up about some other people who are close to her and about her traveling hobby.
"Suffice it to say, I'm very happy in life," the movie beauty said when referring to her romance with Jake. "I'm very lucky to have a lot of really supportive people around me who care very much for me, and, you know, that's all you can hope for in life," she added when referring to her loved ones. "I am very blessed in that way."
Reese and Jake began dating in March 2007, but never talked candidly about their romance. It was after her divorce to then husband Ryan Phillippe being finalized that she and Jake made their first public outing as couple. In June 2008, report surfaced that Jake moved into her $5 million Los Angeles home, making himself part of the family. Neither of them has confirmed nor denied the report.
Earlier this month, Star magazine reported Jake and Reese were on the verge of splitting as she found it hard to be in long distance relationship with him due to his hectic schedule, filming the upcoming "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time". A friend of Witherspoon told the magazine, "This is his first epic, and his mind is on his work. They talk on the phone and e-mail, but he's not 'there.' Reese is wondering if this is how it's going to be between them every time he's out of the country filming."
Having her romance with Jake stays strong despite rumors to the contrary, Reese even took son Deacon Phillippe and daughter Ava Elizabeth Phillippe with her during a visit to Europe, where Jake is currently filming "Prince of Persia". Jake himself is said to have been "trying out what it means to coexist as a family."
