Are Jake Gyllenhaal & Ruth Wilson An Item?

The last we talked about Jake Gyllenhaal, it was when he was telling Ellen that he’d totally let his mom set him up on a blind date. Looks like his mom’s off the hook, however, as he seems to be hooking up with fellow actor Ruth Wilson, with whom he previously starred in the Broadway show Constellations. Oooh!

From Page Six:

The 34-year-old Nightcrawler actor and the 33-year-old The Affair actress attended a Barry’s Bootcamp class together on Saturday (May 9) in New York City’s Noho neighborhood.

After the workout, Jake waited for Ruth to shower and change in the locker room. After she emerged from the room, they shared a “passionate but tasteful kiss” before leaving separately.

First of all, I love that a new couple’s idea of a date is to go to a workout bootcamp where you get your ass handed to you by some beefed up personal trainer. I’m not even being sarcastic – I literally love it.

Second of all, “passionate but tasteful”? That to me says “BEARD!” at high volume, but what do I know. Ruth Wilson could totally do better, though.

Jake Gyllenhaal Wants His Mom To Set Him Up On A Date

The last we heard about Jake Gyllenhaal‘s love life, he was possibly being linked to Rachel McAdams, but it seems like that story was a bust, and thank god (McAdams is way out of his league). No, Jake is totally single and ready to mingle – even if it’s with a woman his mom sets him up with!

Here’s what he had to say in an appearance on the Ellen show yesterday:

“Well, one thing I always do is I always bring my dates to my mother’s house for the first date,” he said, joking. “I think that’s a good move.”

Gyllenhaal said he heeds his mother’s advice when it comes to women and would “absolutely” trust her to set him up.

“My mother believes, she thinks arranged marriages might be able to work. Ya know what I mean, like in a good way,” he added. “She thinks that if she picked for me that I’d do a lot better.”

Maybe you would, Jake. After all, your track record isn’t all that impressive.

What do you think? Any of you have the hots for him/wanna volunteer to be his arranged marriage partner? Speak up now, you just might get the job.

You Will Not Recognize Jake Gyllenhaal After Weight Gain


Jake Gyllenhaal packed on the pounds — pounds of muscle — for his latest film role. First, the dude lost 20 pounds for his role in Nightcrawler. Now he’s gained that and then some, for his role as a boxer in Southpaw. Apparently, he worked out six days a week for six hours per day. Six hours. That’s a full time job. And here are the results:


According to the director (Antoine Fuqua), this is role is gonna be a game changer. Via PEOPLE:

Jake is going to change how people see him. I had him training twice a day in the boxing ring.

… We literally turned him into a beast.

So what do you think of this new look? Upgrade or downgrade? Personally, I’m speechless. I don’t even recognize Mr. Gyllenhaal in there. It’s kind of scary.

What do you think of his latest look?

Are Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal a thing or what?

Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal have been spending a lot of time together because they’re working on a movie called Southpaw. However, their relationship seems to be extending past the co-worker title and might be getting a little more serious, if you wanna take anything from how often they’re together even off-set.

From US Weekly:

The costars let loose at Brenda & Ken of Wolfies Pub with about 60 others following a private dinner at Donatellos Restaurant.

“The owner of Donatellos bought them all a round of shots when they first walked in the door to get the party started. Rachel and Jake, along with the director and crew, were on the dance floor and mixing it up,” the source tells Us.

McAdams, 35, sipped on a Grey Goose martini and later switched to a Maker’s Mark on the rocks during the fun night out. Gyllenhaal, for his part, stuck to Guinness — that is, when he wasn’t doing Trey Songz’s Wobble Dance! “He wasn’t bad at all,” the source notes.

When it got too crowded, the costars then moved to a corner table for more privacy and eventually left around 2 a.m. “They were still having fun but mostly just hung out and talked,” the insider says.

Eh, I dunno. To add some context, this bar is in Indiana, Pennsylvania, so besides hanging out with each other, there’s not much going on, I don’t think. It’s not like they’re in some huge metropolis where they probably have other friends and shit to do.

I can’t really see them together, to be honest. Then again, I can’t see Jake with anyone, especially not while he’s still in Mountain Man mode.

Are Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal doing it or what?

Look, I’m going to admit it: I want Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling to fall (back) in love just like in The Notebook (note: I have never seen The Notebook) and be together forever. APPARENTLY, however, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards at the moment since it’s looking like Rachel is involved with Jake Gyllenhaal. DOWNGRADE.

From US Weekly:

Rumors about the pair’s status have been picking up steam ever since early June, when they were seen having dinner together at Pittsburgh eatery Meat and Potatoes. A fan posted a picture of them on Instagram — and things took off from there.

An insider tells Us, however, that Gyllenhaal, 33, and McAdams, 35, are simply doing their due diligence to prepare for their new film, Southpaw, which stars the Nightcrawler actor as a boxer. “They’ve just been meeting about the movie…It’s really coming together,” the source says, noting that they have “good chemistry.” Adds another source: “Jake and Rachel are just friends.”

Sure, they could just be hanging out because they’re doing a movie together and it’s all part of the research, according to what that “insider” claims. However, I dunno – I’ve got my money on this being a new pairing, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. It’s good to see Jake is looking less insane than he was the last time we saw him, but he’s no Gosling.

P.S. Why is Rachel McAdams so pretty?

Jake Gyllenhaal Punched A Mirror


Jake Gyllenhaal punched a mirror and had to get stitches. No, it wasn’t exactly a fluke accident, like Zac Efron’s jaw-breaker. Mr. Gyllenhaal was really into his character. He did it while filming Nightcrawler, for which he lost about 20 pounds. He was really into the scene and actually punched a mirror and it broke and cut him pretty badly. Here’s more from People, via USA Today: reports that he “flipped out” and punched a mirror. All as part of the scene.

Mara Buxbaum, Gyllenhaal’s rep, told AP that he was back for a final day of filming after “a few hours in the emergency room.”

She confirmed that he hit a mirror, which unexpectedly broke and cut his hand. She said it was “badly cut up” and required “numerous stiches,” reports AP

Yikes. Sounds like he’s turning into Christian Bale. That guy really puts everything into his work. Sometimes too much. Remember when he yelled at the lighting guy? Classic Bale.

Jake Gyllenhaal Talks About Losing Weight For A Film Role


Jake Gyllenhaal lost around 20 pounds for his latest film role, Nightcrawler, that he’s currently shooting. His extreme weight loss makes him look like some sort of bizarro combo of Jared Leto and Christian Bale with a dash of Scott Disick:


Here’s what he said about losing the weight (from E! News via E Online):

I can only approach things from a mental place. Like I’m playing a character who’s hungry, figuratively and literally, who’s driven in ways to do things and succeed at any cost. And I think that defines a generation in a lot of way so I wanted to get their mentally and then have it transform me physically, because I am not one to rely on science as much as I am on just sort of instinct. That’s sort of the character.

Why is it that when guys lose weight for film roles it’s because they’re playing mentally unstable characters (like Christian Bale in The Machinist) whereas women are just always expected to lose weight no matter the role? Yeah, I went there. Just throwing that question out.

I read somewhere once that when Tom Hanks lost weight for Castaway he did it by eating a few handfuls of rice every day. And that Christian Bale lost his weight for the aforementioned role by only eating apples or something equally ridiculous. But it worked. It’s kind of horrifying how well.
