Just a few weeks after breaking up with Taylor Swift over the phone, Jake Gyllenhaal had to make a quick decision on who to bring as his date to the Golden Globes. In the end, he decided that Jenny Lewis, the frontwoman of the band Rilo Kiley—who he dated back in 2001—would be the appropriate arm candy. It’s unlikely that the two are actually hooking up now—Jake’s camp assures that they “went as friends,” which makes sense since Jenny is currently dating Johnathan Rice. The two even play together in a band called Jenny and Johnny, but maybe at some point it could become Jenny and Jakey?
After the jump, how Taylor and Jenny stack up. Not that it’s a competition or anything. Keep reading »
Not to get all New York-y on you guys, but Jake Gyllenhaal has been spending a lot of time in my fair city lately, particularly in Brooklyn where his sister Maggie lives. And just today he was spotted taking the subway into the city! The subway. I love that the guy sitting on the seat next to him so does not give a s**t. He’s like, “Jake Gyllenhaal is standing next to me emitting his awesome essence, but I’ve got 10 more stops to go, so I’m gonna take a nap. Wake me when we get to Times Square, Jake.” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
It appears that Hollywood’s most puzzling pair has called it quits. The Jake Gyllenhaal/Taylor Swift relationship is dunzo. Gyllenswift, as we like to call them, apparently called it quits last month, even after Jake purchased Taylor an exorbitantly expensive guitar for her birthday. Maybe Gyllenhaal got sick of staring into Swift’s squinty eyes. Or sick of not being able to go to a bar with his still-underage girlfriend. Or maybe all that coffee was giving him bowel issues. Or perhaps Taylor wasn’t into dating a guy born in the, gasp, ’80s. Either way, we’re sure Swift will write a song about it. [People] Keep reading »
“I think casual sex some people are into, I definitely have been in my life at times. I think you find other things more important as time goes on.”
– Jake Gyllenhaal on casual sex. What, Jake!? What could you possibly have found that is more important than casual sex? Certainly not Taylor Swift. God, what I wouldn’t give for a peek into his little black book from days of yore. Oh, that my name was in it. [Digital Spy] Keep reading »
In the month they’ve been rumored to be dating, Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift have already settled into a pretty blah routine. At first, their courtship had a zip of excitement with a spotting backstage at “Saturday Night Live” and a jaunt to London. But now, the two are clocking a whole lot of time in coffee shops. Which makes some sense because, well, Taylor is only 20 and can’t go anywhere that requires carding. But still, borrrrring.
After the jump, a timeline of how Jake and Taylor fell into their caffeinated rut. Keep reading »
Much has been written about Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway‘s nudity and sex scenes in “Love and Other Drugs.” But how did these two research the heavier parts of their roles? After the jump, Jake shares how he learned about the world of pharmaceutical reps, and Anne describes how she was able to give a convincing portrayal of a 20-something woman with early-onset Parkinson’s Disease.
