The first time the two met each other was on the set of Rendition in 2006. A source close to both told PEOPLE, ”Jake went and introduced himself to Reese, things slowly progressed, but it was never something she thought would happen from the start. She just kind of developed this little crush over time.” At the time Reese was still married to Phillippe.
In 2007 while her divorce was still pending, Reese decided that she needed to take a step back from Jake because she was needing to give more time to her family. Well that didn’t take too long, because the got back together that same year.
Reese later said that Jake was “really a fantastic guy. He’s very supportive, suffice it to say, I’m very happy in life, and 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. I am very blessed in that way.”
So soon out of her divorce Reese was extremely reluctant to even think about marriage. “Family is all we have in life, but I don’t know how I feel about marriage,” she told Parade last year. “Obviously, I’m not far enough out of being married to think about doing it again. You sort of reconstitute your family. You find a family with people who come into your life for a reason.”
As a couple, Reese and Jake were last seen together two weeks ago, when they spent time in Philadelphia and in Pittsburgh.
As of now the status of Jake and Reese’s relationship is a little unclear. A source close to the actress told PEOPLE that the couple had split up, Reese was seen driving alone in Los Angeles over the weekend, then on Sunday she was spotted at the Whiskey Kitchen – without the beloved Gyllenhaal.
