Perhaps most girls who were born around a certain time feel the same collective warmth whenever John Cusack’s name is mentioned. There’s something about the combination of intellect, jet black hair, Say Anything, Grosse Point Blank, a penchant for privacy, family love, radical politics and that tall, lanky body that all girls secretly swoon for. Or is it just me?
I find it surprising whenever John Cusack’s love life gets press. He plays all of the personal stuff very close to the vest, and has never said one word about most of the famous women he’s rumored to have romanced over the years. Among his rumored conquests are Neve Campbell, Lili Taylor, Claire Forlani, Minnie Driver, Allison Eastwood (daughter of Clint) and Hillary Duff, though I don’t believe that last one.
I had no idea he was dating actress Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, and now Star is reporting that the two have broken up over a disagreement whether to marry. O’Keefe is on “Prison Break”, and judging solely from her pictures, she’s very pretty. But come on, who is she? Does this girl really think she’s going to be the one to get Cusack down the aisle? Get real, “Jodi Lyn” if that is your real name (just checked Wikipedia, it is her birth name)… John Cusack is waiting for me! Star Magazine has more:
A girl can’t wait around forever!
With John Cusack — her on-again, off-again beau since 2003 — dragging his feet about proposing, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe finally decided to call it quits for good.
“She desperately wanted to spend the rest of her life with John,” says an insider. “But he’s never felt the need to get married. She hoped for years he’d change his mind, but she’s done wasting her energy.”
The Prison Break babe gave John one last chance — in early January, the two took a Florida beach vacation to try and work things out. But a witness tells Star that after they returned to L.A., “they were really cold to each other, bickering a lot.”
Jodi ended it soon after, and since the split, adds the insider, “she’s been dating and trying to have fun. Anything to get over John!”

I too have felt overwhelming ambivalence about marriage, too, John! Pick me! But let’s play a game. Let’s say you’re a pretty actress who got some luck on a hit television show called Prison Break. Let’s say you meet eternal heartthrob Lloyd Dobler… oops, I mean John Cusack. Let’s say John asks you out, you date, start living together, and the whole time you know that John Cusack simply doesn’t want to get married because he’s not that guy. Would you stay or would you go? I would stay. And I don’t understand a woman who wouldn’t. But, hey, at least John Cusack is single again!
