Legally blonde star says he's wonderful, but just a pal

They’ve been snapped enjoying a number of dinner dates, but Reese Witherspoon insists that she and Jake Gyllenhaal are not an item.

The Legally Blonde star, a mum-of-two, says the pair are just good friends.

But Reese, 31, is still full of praise for the 26-year-old hunk.

‘I have known Jake for years through different friends and he is just wonderful,’ Reese tells the Daily Mirror. ‘He’s very kind, generous and funny.

‘It’s been nice these past days to laugh a little bit.

‘Yeah, he’s been great and I look forward to maybe making another film with him.’
