International flights can get pretty dull, but not so for GyllenSpoon. Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal kept ocupado while flying from Frankfurt, Germany, to Los Angeles after a trip to the Rome Film Festival, reports Star Magazine
The ever-so-clever celeb couple-du-jour boarded a Lufthansa flight separately, but it didn’t take long for Star’s insider to pick up on the action. “Reese was dressed in all black and wearing shades when she and about six handlers entered Lufthansa’s first class lounge,” the spywitness revealed. “It wasn’t until she was already on the plane that we realized Jake, also dressed in black, had boarded separately.”
Safely ensconced in the first class section, the cozy couple seemed pretty comfortable, the source said. “Reese and Jake kissed and cuddled together under a blanket in her recliner seat in the back row.”
Eventually, nature called and Reese reportedly headed to the lavatory, with Jake joining her only a few minutes later. “I started timing them — they were together in there for 11 minutes,” the observant passenger reported.
After the brief interlude, Jake exited first, and Reese followed a few minutes later. “When they each walked by, it seemed like everyone in their entourage took pains to look away. Jake worked on his laptop, and then he and Reese took a nap side by side.”
Jessica Simpson regrets split with Nick Lachey Two years after her divorce from Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson is still heartbroken, reports Us Weekly. “There are definitely parts of her that regret breaking up with Nick now,” Jessica’s friend recently told the magazine.
According to another friend, Jessica even spent what would have been her fifth wedding anniversary picking at her emotional scabs, “looking through old photo albums that she made when she was with Nick ... she said she was just being ‘girlie,’ but she was definitely somber.”
According to one insider, “Jessica thought she would be with someone right by now.” Certainly the sexy singer can’t count on a future with her current club-hopping escort, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
Us provides the official diagnosis from relationship expert Dr. Janice D. Bennett: “It’s possible Jessica is conflicted about being in a committed relationship again, so she is dating men who are unattainable.”
The pickup artist: Heath LedgerHeath Ledger’s found a way to keep the heartache at bay. Ever since the hunky actor split with his “Brokeback Mountain co-star and baby-mama Michelle Williams, it seems the only thing keeping him going is a whirlwind of other women.
In September Heath cozied up to supermodel Helena Christensen, then in October he enlisted a wingman to distribute his digits to a couple of hotties. Now Page Six reports Heath, following a possible hookup with Kate Hudson, put the moves on Heather Graham and Gemma Ward, in quick succession.
Celebrating Turkey Day in style, the new Joker worked his mack on Heather while dining at a New York eatery. An eyewitness claims Heath flirted “heavily” with the “Boogie Nights” actress, while ignoring everyone else. “(He) told her, ‘We should hang out sometime.’ She agreed, they exchanged numbers, but then he just bolted.” The source added, “He was basically only there to pick up a chick.”
Heath’s next potential conquest, Gemma, is an ongoing pursuit. “He’s following Gemma around everywhere,” a spy informed Page Six. “He somehow finds out where she is going to be and then miraculously shows up to the parties or bars where she is.” Sadly for Heath, the model-turned-actress “is definitely not interested.”
Dish on the flyAccording to Life & Style magazine, Kirsten Dunst recently shared a romantic meal with surfer dude Kelly Slater. “They were flirting a lot, smiling and giggling,” an insider told the magazine. But put the brakes on the story before “Kelsten” rumors really took off. Looks like Kelly’s got a steady and says he’s never even met Miss Miu Miu. … Josh Hartnett is a badass, if he does say so himself. Just Jared quotes the actor boasting about his stuntman-free stance in the face of illness and injury. “I soldier on,” Josh said. “I don’t like to disappoint anyone, or let them down. I’ve had glandular fever and I’ve still gone on to the set, even though my throat was raging… I’ve broken knuckles in screen fights, and once I broke a blood vessel in my eye.” … This just in from the Oh God NO! department: An upcoming issue of Penthouse is set to feature Danny Bonaduce in all his naked, um, glory. TMZ reports the “Partridge Family” bad boy is irate over a nudie pic making the Internet rounds and highlighting his minute manhood. Danny’s banking on the Penthouse gig (and Photoshop!) to set the record straight.
