How long does it take you to get over an ex?
Jake Gyllenhaal seems to be taking his time getting over Reese Witherspoon, but who could blame him? The two were dating for two years, after all. But now it seems Jake may finally be back in the dating pool: eyewitnesses spotted the 29-year-old actor out with a new girl on March 6.
“Jake was hanging out with this mystery girl all night,” one partygoer at the UNICEF/Weinstein pre-Oscar bash at Soho House in Beverly Hills tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She was sort of a Plain Jane, didn’t look like Reese at all. The only similarity is that they were both blond and short!”
Adds the insider, “They were together all night, but they weren’t holding hands or kissing or anything like that. There were no romantic overtones, but they did seem to be very close, sitting close and chatting intimately.”
Well, we say it’s about time! After splitting in November of 2009 after nearly two years together, Reese has already been stepping out on the town with Hollywood agent Jim Toth, while Jake seems to be moving on at a slower pace.
What do you think? How soon is too soon to move on from a serious relationship?
