Jake Gyllenhaal Talks About His Girlfriend's Kids (And He Means Reese)


reese-witherspoon-jake-gyllenhaal-romeJake Gyllenhaal is still calling Reese Witherspoon his girlfriend, despite rumors that the couple has split – which came right after rumors that the couple was planning a wedding.

He’s also talking about what an impact her kids have had on his life.

Gyllenhaal told Grazia Australia on Thursday “I’ve learned so much from the kids in my life, and somehow they just become the center of your life and the way you look at things.” The actor has a 3-year-old niece Ramona, but also seemed to be including Reese’s two children, as he went on to say, “Obviously I exist in my girlfriend’s world and my sister’s world in a different way, but it’s opened my heart and I feel much more grown up and want to be grown up as a result of it.”

Would he like to clarify that little girlfriend comment? Maybe talk about whether or not he’s looking to be a stepfather to any of those “kids in his life” in the future?


“As I get more famous, there is less that is just mine so I hope you understand I want to protect that as much as I can,” Jake said. “I understand the news cycle, I really do, but as we all know news cycles come and go and I don’t have to comment on them.”

*sigh*  It’s like he’s trying to put me out of a job!
