And she's back!

A solo Reese Witherspoon was spotted running errands by her Brentwood, Calif., home on Friday, after flying back from London on a private plane Thursday night.

The actress had been in the U.K. to petition members of Parliament and speak out about domestic violence on various British talk shows. "We are talking about everyone's lives are touched by this issue, whether it be our children, or our mothers or our sisters," Witherspoon, 33, said during an appearance on GMTV Wednesday.

Noticeably absent from Friday's outing in L.A.: Jake Gyllenhaal, who referred to Witherspoon as his "girlfriend" during a recent interview to promote his just-released movie, Brothers.
