Actress doesn't want him using foul language in front of her kids

Jake Gyllenhaal reportedly agreed to follow a set of rules when he moved in with girlfriend Reese Witherspoon.

The actress has daughter Ava, 8, and son Deacon, 4, from her marriage to Ryan Phillippe, 33.

And she wanted to ensure things continued to run smoothly at her £2.5million LA home when Jake arrived last month.

‘Reese believes in wide-open communication, and she discussed at length with him what is best for her household,’ says a source.

‘Some of the things she insists on are run-of-the-mill. He has to take off his shoes when he’s in the house, trash must be taken out when the can is three-quarters full, and no feet on the coffee table.’

But Jake, 27, is said to be happy with the rules because he loves Reese, 32, so much.

‘Jake used to swear like a sailor, but not anymore,’ the source tells Star magazine. ‘If he does, he has to apologise.

‘Jake would much rather stay at home, make popcorn and watch a movie than step foot in a club.

‘So when he was looking for a girlfriend, he looked for someone who was past all that – and he found her in Reese.’
