Or, rather, not groomed himself into my ideal man. Wild, untamed, untrimmed, wooly mammoth beard? CHECK. Hair long enough to be casually pulled back into a haphazard low bun? CHECK. Emotionally stunted, as evidenced by his recent tendency to date much younger swimsuit models? CHECK … okay, so he’s not quite my dream man. But close enough! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest in a long line of celebs to drop a pretty shocking amount of weight for a role. In recent days, Gyllenhaal has been spotted filming the movie “Nightcrawler” in Los Angeles, looking downright frail. I love the dude’s bone structure, trust, but those cheekbones are positively skeletal. Lest you think he’s playing a drug addict or, I dunno, cancer patient in the film, he’s actually portraying a journalist who stumbles upon some underground crime ring. You know us writers — so malnourished!
So, what other celebs have gone to dieting extremes for the sake of their craft? Who lost the most? How did they do it? Click through to find out!
It is rare that I meet a man bun I don’t love — and this is not one of those times. I imagine I might be alone in this, but I find Jake Gyllenhaal even more bangable with that nubbin of knotted hair. I wonder what kind of hair ties he uses? I’m a Goody girl. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
There have been mixed reports about Katie Holmes’ love life ever since her split from husband Tom Cruise last summer. The mom is raising Suri Cruise in New York City, but is making time for herself too. She landed a gig on Broadway in a show called Dead Accounts, and now she’s landed the perfect guy! A new report claims that Katie is having a secret romance with Jake Gyllenhaal!
“All eyes will be out for a first sighting of Katie Holmes and Jake Gyllenhaal in 2013 after it was claimed the pair are secretly dating,” UK Grazia reported. Apparently, the couple were “introduced by Katie’s former ‘Dawson Creek’ flame Joshua Jackson. Josh has been the mastermind behind this romance.”It’s about time Katie pick her romantic life up and start living! She’s young and beautiful (and possibly a manipulative gold digger who planned their whole marriage, all with a sweet smile that barely covers her conniving mind), and she deserves love and happiness.

We all love Taylor Swift, but man, girlfriend has been doing some batshit crazy things lately. All these boyfriends! And she falls in love in two seconds flat and then, because she’s mega rich, buys houses and stuff right next door to them. True story: I once accidentally saw Taylor Swift perform at an Apple store in, like, 2007. Nobody was there. I was trying to get my computer fixed, and she was just singing to three people. But anyway! Taylor is pretty, young, rich and famous. And as Ryan O’Connell writes on Thought Catalog:
Her career depends on her getting laid and having her heart broken. That’s what 99% of her songs are about. If we don’t know who she’s sleeping with, what else is there to really know about her? It’s practically her job to always be in love with someone.
And that could turn practically anyone batcrackers
So we’ve catalogued the year in crazy Taylor Swift girlfriend moves, for your pleasure.

Can’t remember how to pronounce Jake Gyllenhaal’s last name? Just pretend you’re the Swedish Chef from “Sesame Street” and you’ll probably be close.
When Jake Gyllenhaal started dating Taylor Swift back in 2010, he must’ve known he was gambling that a song might be written about him down the road. So, is this it? If a blogger from Oh No You Didn’t! with a lot of time on his/her hands is to be believed, “Begin Again,” is Tay-Tay’s Jake Gyllenhaal breakup song. The theory is that Taylor is singing about moving on after getting dumped by Jake and relishing the sweetness she found with Will Anderson from the band Parachute. One clue is that she and Will Anderson dated eight months after Jake and she mentioned “eight months” in the song; Will is also a James Taylor fan and she makes a reference to all her “James Taylor records.” And then there’s a whole bunch of other little digs at Jake — or whomever — about how he never laughed at her jokes and didn’t like when she wore high heels. I wouldn’t put it past John Mayer to have been a dick like that, either, though. Gurl, we’ve got to help you get better taste in men. [ONTD]
Dude. Dude. I am really, really into Jake Gyllenhaal’s Paul Bunyon-inspired wooliness on the cover of Details’ September issue. Let’s go chop some wood, if you know what I mean… Anyway, the actor has a decidedly more manly look and vibe to him in both the magazine’s photos and interview, in which he talks a lot about his approach to acting. He’s got two films coming out — “End of Watch” and “An Enemy” — which required him to play vastly different characters, both physically and mentally. The former, a bulked up cop, and the second, a nerdy history professor (hence, the beard?). Sounds like the perfection combination, if you ask me. Check out some more photos above, and read the interview at the link! [Details]
In my nightmares, the sleeping guy is me and the standing and reading celeb is Ryan Gosling. I wake up in a pool of sweat every single time. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Over the long weekend, Jake Gyllenhaal was obviously slutting it up. And by slutting it up, I mean that he (gasp!) went to lunch with Rashida Jones at a cafe in Los Angeles, and the very next day dared to (ZOMG!) go to Subway and give a one-arm hug to his “End of Watch” co-star, Anna Kendrick. Just like I did the other week, I watched both stories develop from minute little tidbits into full-out scandals via the headlines appearing in my Google Reader. After the jump, how both rumors grew more and more salacious over the course of just a few hours. Keep reading »
