Jake and Jen shared a passionate embrace and prolonged kiss at the 18th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles earlier this month.
"It wasn't just a polite peck on the cheek. There was definitely feeling in that embrace,” a Witherspoon pal told Woman’s Day magazine. "When Reese heard about it, she broke down in tears asking, 'Why would he do that?' She is very unhappy about it."
In her first public romance since splitting from Ryan Phillippe, Reese thought she had finally found love with “Brokeback Mountain” star Gyllenhaal; however, a source now suggests she may be in doubt of her dream man.
"She [Witherspoon] always thought Jake was intelligent and charming. That's why she's so stunned by the photographs of Jake and Jen,” the source said to the mag. “She's really hurt by what she's seen. They seem to be very explicit and everyone knows Jennifer's looking for love."
Jake and Jen founded a friendship when the starred together in “The Good Girl” in 2002, and on the night of the GLAAD Awards, Gyllenhaal was presenting the “Friends” star with an award.
Joe Simpson to Take Britney Spears Under His Wing?
Jessica Simpson and Ashlee Simpson's father reportedly is striving to step up and steer Britney Spears back to success.
According to the New York Daily News, Joe Simpson, a former Baptist minister, is considering taking on the bald beauty’s crazy career.
And it seems that pop princess Jessica no longer sees Spears as her rival. The buxom beauty apparently offered to put a call out to Brit and reportedly is pleased about the potential partnership.
Perhaps Spears is just seeking a fresh family in the Simpsons after her father’s angry outburst in which he called her "out of control" in the New York Post last week. Us Weekly reports that Spears has since decided to block out her blood roots.
"She's cut everyone out of her life," a source told Us. "She says she doesn't want to see anyone from her past."
Meanwhile, according to an inside source at In Touch Weekly, the single mom is hitting the bottle less than a month after leaving rehab. Spears reportedly wined and dined on April 14 at a Beverly Hills condo with her cousin before popping over to Parc Nightclub for a few more rounds of red.
"Brit feels like she can have a few drinks," a friend told the mag. "She feels like as long as she's having fun and not hurting anyone, she doesn't need rehab."
Dunst Ditches Movie Men for Musicians
Kirsten Dunst only wants a man who is going to rock her world.
The “Spider-Man” starlet has been weaving a web of love with Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell and has vowed that she won’t “Bring It On” with any screen stars again.
"I don't ever want to date another actor again," Dunst declared in Jane magazine in its May issue. "This quote is probably going to come back in my face, but I know someone who has a great saying: 'There are no actors, there are only actresses.' Sometimes creative people can be very dark and destructive."
But how does this “Crazy/Beautiful” babe know if a boy is befitting enough to be boyfriend?
"For me, it's an intuitive thing," she continued in the mag. "I have to be blown away or have a really good conversation and laugh with the person right away."
Sienna Miller to Play Keira Knightley's Lesbian Lover?
According to E! News, the on-screen epic is set to start shooting next month in Wales. But from the sounds of it, it's Matthew Rhys who will be having “The Best Time of His Life” as the middle man in a raunchy rumored threesome with the babes.
Knightley, for one, says sex scenes are soothing.
"Sex scenes are easy. I don't really have a problem with them,” she told U.K.’s Daily Mirror. “Actually, it was quite liberating in the movie 'Domino' to be out in the middle of the desert completely topless with a beautiful Venezuelan guy. I was very lucky."
Carrie Gets Cozy With Cowboys Quarterback
Country queen Carrie Underwood may very well have found herself a comely cowboy in Dallas quarterback Tony Romo.
The "Idol" winner helped the sports star celebrate his 27th birthday over the weekend, along with Romo’s fellow athletes in the VIP section of Ghostbar in Dallas.
"Carrie and Tony were having a great time in the DJ booth," a witness told People magazine. "They were laughing, singing together, holding hands and their arms were around each other all night."
According to the mag, the Grammy golden girl even put her singing skills to good use when she led the entire club in singing "Happy Birthday" to Romo.
The star-studded couple also found their way to the DJ deck to don a duet version of Twisted Sister’s hit “We’re Not Gonna Take It."
"They sang and everybody joined in -- I mean everybody," a rep for Ghostbar added. "It was pretty funny."
But when it comes to seriousness, a spokesperson for Underwood insists that the rising relationship “is very casual at this point. It's [in the] really early stages."
It seems to be a pretty impressive leap in love for the star, seeing as though she declared in the May issue of Cosmopolitan that she’s shy, “horrible around guys” and hasn’t had a date since her college break-up.
“When I do meet a guy, there's this 'Does he just want his picture in a magazine?' factor," Carrie confessed to Cosmo. "I'm not saying I want to get married tomorrow, but I'd like to have someone other than my mom to call when I have good news."
Well, perhaps Underwood’s words of “When Will I Be Loved?” now have an answer.
Marilyn Manson Divorce Gets Dirty
Burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese has dished the dirt on her divorce from musicman Marilyn Manson.
"I get the impression he thinks I was unsupportive,” Dita told Britain’s Sunday Telegraph. “But the truth is I wasn't supportive of his lifestyle, and someone else came along who was."
Von Teese filed for divorce in December last year, only one year after the dark-haired duo tied the knot in Ireland.
"Everything went downhill after we got married. I started working a lot to escape my home life,” the dancer added. "I left with nothing. I knew that there was an inappropriate relationship going on ... and I didn't want any part of it around to remind me. I didn't want that sofa. I didn't want that bed."
Will Britney Spears Sing With Sanjaya?
Pop princess Britney Spears' taste continues to become more and more “Toxic."
The bald beauty is eager to work with ridiculed reality star Sanjaya Malakar, Star magazine reported.
The mag quoted Brit as believing that the two would make “beautiful” music together.
Well, that is if Spears elects to stay in her singing career.
Brit apparently is feeling frenzied by the prospect of re-pursuing her passion for pop and has contemplated pulling out of public life to pursue a private life with her sons.
The reformed rehabber reportedly revealed her concerns over the weekend while shopping for kids clothes in L.A.
"Britney said that Sean and Jayden are the loves of her life and that she enjoys every moment with her kids,” a witness told X17 online. “She was excited to pick out some new clothes for the boys and she picked up some designer jeans and other items.
"Britney even talked about being a stay-at-home mom, saying that she loves it and that because of her boys, she's not looking forward to going back to work!"
Lindsay Owns Up
Lindsay Lohan is starting to take the blame for her wayward ways, commenting on her public slamming last year from the CEO of Morgan Creek Productions for her lack of professionalism while filming “Georgia Rule."
"It upset me because I was ... a bit irresponsible,” Lohan admitted to Allure magazine. “I didn't think about the consequences, but I was also going through something in my life."
Lindsay Lohan-Keira Knightley Threesome Squashed?
The sexy starlets are said to be feuding, as U.K.’s Daily Mail reported that Linds threw a “Mean Girl” and pulled out of Keira's new film, “The Best Time of Our Lives,” a dramatic biopic of Welsh bard Dylan Thomas.
But this isn’t just a battle for the Boulevard babes.
Keira’s mom, Sharman McDonald (who wrote the screenplay), is reportedly raging at the reformed rehabber, as she was responsible for getting Lohan the lesbian-lover role.
The film tells the story of William Killick, who tried to kill Thomas because he believed he was having an affair with his wife, Vera, played by Keira.
However, movie buffs were predicting box-office bliss for the epic due to the lesbian love scenes and a thrilling threesome with fellow actor Matthew Rhys.
While Lindsay may not want to get too steamy on set, she does admit to being super-sexual when the cameras aren’t rolling.
"I'm a sexual person — everyone is, I think,” she told Allure magazine. “And once a month I'm a McDonald's person. Everything in moderation."
Nick and Vanessa Shack Up
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo recently moved into a Manhattan condo.
"Nick carried the huge boxes while Vanessa helped with the small ones," a source told People magazine.
But there is also speculation that the brunette beauty has had enough bites of the Big Apple and is hoping to head for the Hollywood Hills to pursue an acting career. Reps, however, would not confirm if the "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent has also moved into Nick’s Bel Air abode.
In the meantime, Minnillo is focused on motherhood.
"I want to bring three boys up to be good men in this world and then one little girl," she told People. "I always say I want three boys and a girl but at the end of the day I just want healthy kids."
Daddy Spears Sides Against Britney in Manager War
Just as pop princess Britney Spears has been trying to twirl back into “The Zone” of success, her father, Jamie, has hit back, saying that it’s her own fault if she loses custody of her sons and careens her rep into ruins.
In a statement released to the New York Post, senior Spears sticks up for Brit’s former manager Larry Rudolph, whom the singing sensation fired for such things as pushing her into “Promises” rehab and introducing her to perennial party-girl Paris Hilton.
"When Larry Rudolph talked Britney into going into rehab, he was doing what her mother, father and team of professionals with over 100 years of experience knew needed to be done,” Jamie Spears told Page Six.
"She was out of control. Larry was the one chosen by the team to roll up his sleeves and deliver the message, to help save her life. The Spears family would like to publicly apologize to Larry for our daughter's statements about him over the past few weeks. Unfortunately, she blames him and her family for where she is at today with her kids and career. Larry has always been there for Britney. For this, we will forever be grateful to him."
But the reformed rehabber has put her father’s feelings down to a lack of love and understanding.
"I am praying for my father. We have never had a good relationship,” she told the paper via her publicist. “It's sad that all the men that have been in my life do not know how to accept a real woman's love. I am concentrating on my work and my life right now."
Spears also reportedly feels as if her former manager put her into a compromising career “Crossroads,” as a pal told the Post that she was simply suffering postpartum depression and didn’t have any issues with alcohol or drugs when she was pushed into “Promises."
And when it comes to Britney and “shears," it has been suggested that it was just an act of guilt rather than a reflection of profound personal problems.
"Britney's aunt had just died of cancer,” the Spears source added. “She was feeling very guilty because she hadn't been there with her, she was overwhelmingly depressed and she shaved her head in solidarity."
So while Brit and her brigade are busy telling the public why she laid off Larry, the man himself has instead skipped out of the spotlight.
"Britney obviously has a lot of issues ... Larry's trying to lay low and letting her act out, but ... he doesn't want to see her wind up like Anna Nicole Smith,” a Rudolph friend confessed to the Post.
“He won't get into a public fight with her — yet. This is about saving her from herself."
Katie Holmes 'Cruises' Out of Hubby's Hold
You go, girl.
According to Life & Style magazine, Katie Holmes escaped from Tom Cruise's control to film “Mad Money” in Louisiana.
Mommy Katie reportedly used the time spent out of Tom’s tight grip to reclaim parts of her past, which included reconnecting with former friends and family.
Holmes apparently called childhood galpal Meghann Brie, whom she hasn’t hung out with since hooking up with Tom two years ago.
“She wanted to talk to someone not in Camp Cruise,” another friend told the mag. “Katie told Meghann she can’t believe she abandoned her old life.”
And while “Top Gun” Tom may have converted his wife to Scientology, it seems Holmes may “Cruise” back to Catholicism.
Life & Style reports that the brunette beauty has been secretly speaking to clergy for advice, and would love to enroll Suri into “kiddie Catholicism” classes.
