Reese Witherspoon isn’t going into detail about her relationship with Rendition costar Jake Gyllenhaal – but she’s happy to admit he’s good looking.

“Jake’s cute,” Ellen DeGeneres said to Witherspoon in an interview Tuesday – an assessment the Oscar-winning actress couldn’t argue with. “Yeah. He’s great,” she replied with a laugh.

DeGeneres continued her pseudo-interrogation, asking Witherspoon to choose her favorite Rendition costar: Jake or Meryl Streep. “I have to choose one? That’s not fair!” Witherspoon replied.

The talk-show host also told Witherspoon, whose divorce from Ryan Phillippe was made official this month, that she looked “happy and healthy,” and asked after her children.

“I’m very well, thank you,” Witherspoon said. “Everybody’s great.”
