Dreams do come true!!
The friendly exes may have put their relationship behind them but apparently are still very close on the set for their upcoming film, X-Men: Apocalypse.
The the movie's director, Bryan Singer, took to Instagram to share a pic (below) of the duo on set!
Say it ain't so!
On Wednesday, Maggie Gyllenhaal revealed in an interview that she recently lost a role because she was told she was too old! What the what?!
The 37-year-old shared:
"There are things that are really disappointing about being an actress in Hollywood that surprise me all the time.
I'm 37 and I was told recently I was too old to play the lover of a man who was 55. It was astonishing to me. It made me feel bad, and then it made me feel angry, and then it made me laugh."
Though the Oscar nominee was able to laugh it off — we think we're still angry!!
The Parks and Recreation star quipped:
"Patricia Arquette is here, so wonderful. So, so wonderful in the film Boyhood. Boyhood proves there are still great roles for women over 40, as long as you get hired when you're under 40."
Gyllenhaal decided to take the high road and chose not to reveal the specific project.
Nonetheless, the brunette beauty is getting quite a bit of Emmy buzz for her role in the mini-series, The Honourable Woman.
"A lot of actresses are doing incredible work right now, playing real women, complicated women. I don't feel despairing at all. And I'm more looking with hope for something fascinating."
Rock on, sister!
We wonder what brother, Jake Gyllenhall has to think about his sister's struggles?!
We can only imagine he's pissed.
Maggie, keep doing you girl. We foresee many more roles (and awards) in your future!

You go girl!
However, the TV host wanted to chat about something a little more serious — she asked the funny lady about her experience with body shamers.
The Oscar nominee recalled an awkward face-to-face meeting with a particularly harsh critic during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival — which she previously discussed in her recent Entertainment Weekly cover story.
The critic apparently made incredibly sexist comments about the Emmy winner's appearance in a previous film — so the TV star decided it was time to educate the journalist about body shaming!
"I said, 'You know, would you do that to a man? John C. Riley played a really broken down character and looked terrible.'
I said, 'I put a lot of time and effort into having her completely not look like she cared about herself. That was part of how I felt she felt on the inside. Would you ever say that to a man?' And he goes, 'Well, you really looked bad.' And then I said, 'I hope…do you have children? And he said, 'I do.' And I said, 'I hope you don't have a daughter."
Whoa! However, the Bridesmaids actress explained that she wasn't trying to be malicious.
"When I said, 'If she comes home and someone says you can't have a job because you're unattractive,' are you gonna say, 'That's right?'
And he took that in his heart and he was like, 'No, I would never want that to happen. I would never in a million years want that to happen.'"
FIERCE!! Way to represent women everywhere, Melissa!
This isn't the first movie based on the life of Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs. But based on the trailer, this looks like the version we've all been waiting for!
The teaser trailer of Universal's Steve Jobs (above) mostly includes audio from Michael Fassbender, who is playing the titular role of the famous inventor.
Check out the teaser to see Fassbender in Jobs's signature black turtleneck and glasses, and go see Steve Jobs in theaters October 9!
Oh the shade!!
On Tuesday, Melissa Rivers sat down with Hoda Kotb at the 92nd Street Y to discuss her book The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation — and it seems she had a lot to say about Kathy Griffin!
When asked about her mom Joan Rivers' replacement on Fashion Police, Melissa had no problem pulling out the shade.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Whoopi Goldberg was noticeably absent from the View as she left to be with her dying brother, Clyde K. Johnson.
Reportedly, the Oscar winner rushed to California on Monday to be at 65-years-old's side before he passed of a brain aneurysm. The star has yet to confirm her brother's death.
Her family at The View noted the beloved host's absence as they took to Twitter and shared:
It's said that the siblings were incredibly close — as Clyde served as the comedienne's driver for years. Tragic!
What must be the hardest part for Whoopi is that this loss comes a few years after the passing of her mother.
On her mother's death, the TV personality stated:
"And so, I'm not sad because she had a great time… I think I'm just sad sometimes because I think who will love me the way that she did? But I realized that my brother and I have each other so we're OK."
Our hearts are with Whoopi and her family and we wish her the best during this trying time.

What a wild story!
Well, it seems as though her movie is getting even more press now… but not for any reason you'd probably think.
In the film, which is inspired by Cheryl Strayed's journey down the Pacific Crest Trail, Reese gets so worked up that she removes her boots and throws them over a cliff.
While Reese did keep a pair of the boots for herself after production wrapped — there were a lot of pairs designed, each in different stages of distress — we would have thought the props department would have tried to get the lone shoe back.
But apparently not, because a hiker named Chris Kesting just found the boot during a stroll nearly two years after it was thrown into the middle of nowhere!
What a strange world we live in. LOLZ!
Cheryl herself confirmed that the retrieved boot was the same custom Danner creation as the one in the movie, so we guess Chris probably walked away with the best prop from the film.
He could sell that online for a lot of money. Just sayin'.
