Earlier this week, it was revealed Kirsten has dumped the 'Donnie Darko' actor after two years together.
Jake is said to be distraught, but his spokesman insists the break-up was amicable, saying: "They split a while ago, but they remain close and are still the best of friends."
Kirsten was tight-lipped about her love life at the recent London premiere of 'Spider-Man 2', saying: "I don't discuss it."
Friends claim the pressures of the couple's successful movie careers put strain on their relationship.
The Hollywood couple starting dating after being introduced by Jake's actress sister, Maggie, who co-starred with Kirsten in 'Mona Lisa Smile'.
Jake recently confessed his love for Kirsten, saying: "She's the only girl for me", and even claimed he was desperate to make a movie with her.
Kirsten, who has previously dated her 'Spider-Man' co-star Tobey Maguire, also appeared to be smitten, saying last month: "I am really happy and in love."
