Reese Witherspoon & Jake Gyllenhaal ‘drifting apart’ (NO! DAMN YOU, FATE!!)

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal’s oatmeal-esque relationship is hitting the rocks. While Jake is tied up filming the adaptation of the Prince of Persia video game, the long distance relationship isn’t going well with Reese who should, seriously, try to work things out. I mean, it’s not everyday you find a soulmate who shares your ability to bore someone to death during sex. That’s a special bond, my friends. Star reports:

“This is his first epic, and his mind is on his work,” a pal of Reese’s tells Star. “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.”
The relationship hit such a rough patch that Reese, 32, flew to London for a quick rendezvous with Jake, 27, at The Dorchester hotel in mid-September.
“They really needed to reconnect and remember why they were in a relationship in the first place,” says another source.

It looks like Jake Gyllenhaal’s success is putting a wet blanket on his love life – which was already a wet blanket. So I’m assuming that’s bad or something, I dunno. I don’t do laundry.
