“When people get in your face and say, ‘This will pass,’ you think: Are they crazy?
” Witherspoon said in the April 2009 issue of Elle magazine, adding that the divorce was, “very humiliating and very isolating.” Still, Witherspoon came to realize, “If it’s not painful, maybe it wasn’t the right decision to marry to begin with.
She was seen driving alone in Los Angeles over the weekend, then on Sunday she was spotted at the Whiskey Kitchen in Nashville – without Gyllenhaal.
As a couple, the last time they were seen together was two weeks ago, when they spent time in Philadelphia (where Reese is shooting a yet-to-be-titled movie with Oscar-winning director James L.
Brooks) and in Pittsburgh (where Jake is shooting his new movie, Love and Other Drugs).
“As much as everyone thinks they’re right there, they’re really not near the whole marriage thing,” a source close to the couple told PEOPLE last spring.
Last July, Gyllenhaal revealed that despite his many relationships, he's only been in love "twice." During an appearance on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show in July, he admitted that his exes shouldn't blame themselves for those breakups. "I think I probably just got scared." In fact, that same month, Gyllenhaal told ET's Kevin Frazier that he hopes to have a family one day.
Despite repeated rumors that the duo had gotten engaged, reps for the pair denied a proposal – and Witherspoon made it clear that she wasn’t ready.
“Jake would marry her tomorrow, but Reese doesn’t want to go there yet, even though he would like to.” The source adds: “There’s a huge attraction between them, and they’ve becomes a team, partners, but Jake can be a little overbearing at times, and Reese is really happy with life right now. ” Then there are her children – daughter Ava, 10, and son Deacon, 6 – with former husband Ryan Phillippe to consider.
“The kids are her first priority,” says the source.
During the scene where Abasi Fawal is watching the footage of the bombing on Al Jazerra, the news crawl in Arabic on the bottom of the TV is moving left-to-right (as it does when there is a news crawl in English). I pay my taxes and outside 1 or 2 parking tickets I have no blemish on my record since I came to this country in 1991.
However, the crawl should move right-to-left, since Arabic is read right to left. I look more Egyptian than the Ibrahimi character but my spoken English is as good as his.
