But now, the gorgeous gal is opening up about those allegations. On Sunday, she said social media is often to blame:
"I think it's a double-edged sword."
She explained that she doesn't dish details about her personal life online for the masses to see and overanalyze, but that often allows them to come to their own conclusions:
"I think — and this is something Reese Witherspoon has talked about a lot — it's a little different for me because I don't talk about my personal life. Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities'] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, 'That's not true! Just so you know, that's BS!' I say 'BS' because it's Sunday. So I'm thinking in some ways, it's been great because people are able to maintain their voice."
The acclaimed actress explained her choice to not to defend herself from tabloid headlines online, adding:
