Sex & the Single Woman: Best Celebrity Couple of the Year

In a world where we are surrounded by celebrity news, it’s hard to ignore the influence these people have on us. This can be both good and bad. Despite what some celebrities may want, they are all inevitably role models for us. For this reason, I would like to suggest this year’s best celebrity couple.

You know, it’s hard enough to find a good man in the world today. Try being a divorced mother of two who happens to be in the public eye in a major way. Handle all of this with grace, aaaaaaand land a righteous hottie like Jake Gyllenhaal? Reese Witherspoon, you are my hero.

Reese and Jake started dating in the spring of 2007. Since then they have been photographed out and about with Reese’s children–who apparently get along swimmingly with Jake. I may be making assumptions about their relationship, but that is part of the charm–they aren’t flaunting it in the world’s faces. How tired are you of hearing about Spencer and Heidi? Or seeing Brad and Angelina on every magazine cover?

Yes, I am aware that they recently broke up, but that is also part of why I admire them. They appear to be handling everything by keep it out of the public eye– thank goodness.

On top of all of this, they continue to have successful careers and in general seem to be good people, which is why I think that they are (or were) the celebrity couple of the year.
