Jake Gyllenhaal & Rashida Jones Go On A Lunch Date Together


It’s been a while since we’ve seen photos of Jake Gyllenhaal here on the blog but this weekend he surfaced on a lunch date with a new lady, sparking talk that he may be in LURVE again. Jake and his pet pooch Atticus were spotted on a date with actress Rashida Jones … might this be the start of a new love affair?

Jake Gyllenhaal seems to have Swiftly moved on from former flame Taylor, enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon with Tobey Maguire’s ex-girlfriend. The Donnie Darko star dined out with Rashida Jones yesterday at trendy LA eaterie Gratitude, laughing and joking together over a spot of lunch.
Dressed casually in combat shorts and a plain white T-shirt, Gyllenhaal loosely disguised himself by hiding beneath a baseball cap. The couple both seemed more relaxed inside the restaurant, with Jake removing his hat and Rashida taking off her sunglasses. They obviously were comfortable in one another’s company, with Jake appearing to pinch food off her plate at one point. After they had finished eating, they took Jake’s dog Atticus for a leisurely stroll, but were cautious not to put on a public display of affection.

The duo are said to have met at an event in January, shortly after Jake’s split from Taylor Swift – although nothing has been confirmed yet.

You know … while I prefer Jakey poo to be single (and waiting for me), I really don’t hate the idea of him hooking up with Rashida. She is awesome … and they look really good together. Of course, this lunch date could’ve just been a friendly hang out session but … I dunno … sharing food? Meeting the dog? That’s serious biz, right there. We’ll have to keep an eye on these two … but, yeah, I deffo approve of this pairing … do YOU?

    I really could care less about him, but Rashida is soooo gorgeous. I would give my left arm to be half as pretty as her!

  • Mandy

    Dislike. I don’t know why…they’re just odd couple.

  • bekki

    I think she looks a little like his sister … so its sort of weird. But I have no huge objections … I’m happy
