Yesterday we saw photos of Jake Gyllenhaal out and about in West Hollywood, CA this weekend enjoying a leisurely breakfast with an older woman on Saturday morning. But by Sunday afternoon, Jake had traded that older woman for a much younger woman picked to be his date to the Golden Globe Awards last night. Jake didn’t bring just any ol’ chick to the fête with him, no siree, he asked his ex-girlfriend (and Rilo Kiley frontwoman) Jenny Lewis to accompany him. Might the ex-lovers be sparking up a new relationship together?
Jake Gyllenhaal definitely has a thing for blondes, but there is one redhead who remains near and dear to his heart: Jenny Lewis … The former child actress, who has become a singing indie rock favorite by fronting band Rilo Kiley and releasing two solo albums, has remained friends with the Globe nominee, even after moving on and dating other people. Back in 2009, Gyllenhaal, 30, caught Lewis’s set at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival with then girlfriend Reese Witherspoon. Later that year Lewis, who is currently dating fellow musician Johnathan Rice, hung out with the couple after her concert at the Hollywood Bowl. And Gyllenhaal wore a sweatshirt with Lewis’s face on it while exiting a gym in Studio City last June. Sunday night, they were back to supporting one another with Lewis on Gyllenhaal’s arm at the Golden Globes. With his short-lived romance with Taylor Swift on everyone’s mind, who says ex’s can’t be friends?
So … Jenny is currently attached to another dude … and yet, Jake and Jenny made sure NOT to be photographed too close to one another. The couple made sure not to pose for any photos together, nor were they seen holding hands or touching in anyway. The only photos of the pair together were taken at a distance or accidentally when the pair stepped into the same frame. HMMMM. Friends? More than friends? Whatever the case may be, I’m quite certain that nothing about any of this is sitting well with Taylor Swift today. HMMMM.
