Hollywood's hottest new item Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon are heading for the altar, according to reports. Friends claim Gyllenhaal proposed to Witherspoon during the couple's vacation in Rome, last October (07). The Walk The Line Oscar winner said "not yet", so soon after her split from Ryan Phillippe - but has since said "yes", after consulting with close friends. A pal says, "Not only were they (her friends) crazy about Jake, they could see he was absolutely nuts about her. But you've go tot understand - Reese is a one-man woman who hates playing the field. "When Jake proposed in Rome, he knew Reese needed time, and didn't really expect her to say 'yes' right away. He just wanted her to know that he was serious about their relationship - serious enough to make her his wife." Witherspoon ended her eight year marriage to Phillippe with divorce on 5 October last year (07).
