Jake Gyllenhaal &  Austin Nichols: Bicycle Buds

Jake Gyllenhaal and his BFF, actor Austin Nichols, wear matching silver helmets and spandex as they take their bicycles for a ride on Monday morning (April 13) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The twosome went bike-riding together on just about a month ago — Thursday (March 5) in Brentwood, Calif.

Just last week, Jake and longtime girlfriend Reese Witherspoon went on a date at Italian restaurant Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi.

    Please, Jared, stop referring to Austin as Jake’s BFF. It is well-known, from many Jake interviews and photos, that Jake’s very best friend, going back to childhood, is a chef named Chris who lives in New York.

    I know that sounds picky, but ardent Jake fans will appreciate the accuracy.

    Thanks! And your blog is great, otherwise!

    My friend Erin and I bike together almost every day. Does this mean we are a lesbian couple? Just checking… I have been married for 7 years, but from what I understand from the above comments..if I bike with my friend,it means we are in a sexual relationship??

    I agree with Tony, why do you have to drag the date with the beard into this.

    J&A both look great, and nice to see a real smile on Jake’s face for a change.

    Bianca Says:

    Jake is a decent guy who doesn’t let the fact Austin is a loser and a drunk stop him from going out for a bike ride once in a while. Austin thought it would help his career to have a few famous friends. Jake doesn’t mind being friends with a D-list actor. Just not BFF. Ironically, it’s this D-list actor who minds people thinking he is gay! LOL!!! Austin keeps his distance most of the time! Guess he needs publicity right about now.

    Wanda Says:

    “Jake doesn’t mind being friends with a D-list actor. Just not BFF. ”
    Someone is forcing Jake to be Austin’s friend since “The Day After Tomorrow” ?

    lullala Says:

    #12 your are right, but it seems that many posters have too much dreamed about Brokeback Mountain …
    it’s very sad when a man or a woman want desperately believe in something in spite of reality…
    If I’m gay I want everything is gay!

    So they like to talk about beards…fake…phoney…Austin…closet…

    ….lately someone is starting to say:Wait a moment!J &R relationship it last…Damn!… He may be bisexual!
    I dont know if is it more sad than pathetic…certainly boring…

    Hello! Says:

    I think Jake is bisexual. It has nothing to do with Brokeback Mountain. I think he and Reese are in a relationship, but this relationship is more fauxmance than romance, promoting their image and films. I’m pretty certain it won’t last for too long.

  23. 23
    aska Says:

    well yea, reese thinks he’s “fabulous”, that’s like the ultimate gay compliment.

    fauxmance Says:

    “I think he and Reese are in a relationship”
    Just business relationship.
    They are trying and faking, but never look like a real couple.
    Jake’s fans who know him well can tell the difference.

  26. 26
    Halli Says:

    Reese Witherspoon has a reputation for being very calculated.

    Jake also wants desperately to be launched into that leading man status for a good 20 years or so that will solidify his career in Hollywood.

    I think the Reese/Jake fauxmance won’t last forever, She’s stated so many times how much she admires Angelina Jolie when it comes to her professional life (Reese Witherspoon really wanted to be in Mr. and Mrs. Smith – to per personal choices of being a UN ambassador). So Reese is now some bullshit ambassador for Avon. Whatever. I can see through her game.

    This is coming from a straight girl.

    Thats why I love Jake he knows all about the silly gossip and really does not give a f***,.

    ps He was actually coming out of Reese’s gated community

    Jake does care because he works in Hollywood.
    That’s why he’s bearding – pretending to date Reese Witherspoon.

    wHortensia Says:

    I think Bianca has it about right. Jake is a really nice guy and would like to help his friend Austin with some publicity. Biking together doesn’t make two guys gay, for Chris sake. BUT there are some unaswered questions about his relationship to Reese. Namely: 1. She is now 33 and probably doesn’t want any more children. A new baby would upset her present kids a lot. And in two more years her time for having kids will be past. So what is Jake hanging out with her for? If he is straight one presume he wants kids. Why waste his time on a woman who won’t give them to him? Now if he isn’t straight, then it would all make sense. Just sayin’.

    Tilly Says:

    Women can have children until well into the 40′s wHortensia, do some research stupid.

  33. 33
    wHortensia Says:

    Well woman CAN, but most don’t want children that late in life. And I doubt Reese wants to present her present kids with a “new” family. I’m hardly stupid, dear, just sensible.

  34. 34
    Tilly Says:

    Most women these days have children later in life and yes you are stupid.

    wHortensia Says:

    Judy Garland’s third and last child came when she was 33. Please name me important movie stars who have had children past the age of 35. Put up or shut up. Stupid are people who don’t have facts at hand.

    Jake never looks that happy with Reese. (fake) Austin makes him happy. (real thing). HW let him be who he is.

    wHortensia Says:

    I never said that Jake’s friendship with Austin was not genuine. In fact I said I thought it WAS genuine. That he helps Austin get some publicity from time to time because they ARE friends.

  41. 41
    wHortensia Says:

    Reese lives at 340 So. Gunston Drive in Brentwood and the street is closed off by a gate that you can see in one of the pictures. I think the poster who said they were coming out of that gate is probably correct.

    Oi Says:

    wHortensia, are you kidding with this? Madonna, Halle Berry, J. Lo., Gwen Stefani, Nicole Kidman. You gonna tell me they aren’t big celebs? All had babies after 35. All are every bit as successful, or more successful, than Reese. Plenty of women, famous and not, are having children later in life. Reese has a good decade, or more, of being able to have children in front of her.

    Amelia Says:

    It’s great to see Jake with his boyfriend instead of with that fake beard he is always with. But, since the pics were taken by Flynet, the Official Pap Agency for the Reese & Jake Showmance, Jake’s PR probably staged the photo op to show that Jake can 1)still has friends, the beard hasn’t driven them all away, 2)he can be seen with a guy, so he must not be gay anymore. He should just come out already.

    jake fan Says:

    Reese Witherspoon’s fans are really despearate!
    Sorry guys,
    Reese Witherspoon needs Jake just for publicity (more money) – who would write about her without this lame fauxmance ?!
    Reese is just a beard – there is no sex.

    Christian Says:

    Does Reese need Jake for publicity ?! Give me a break , she is Oscar winner and she could have a man more old, rich and famous than Jake.

  58. 58
    ryddian Says:

    Sorry, christian, but a man older and more famous wouldn’t put up with her, not every man would like to be dominated and dragged around like a poppy the way Jake is. Older men are more intelligent,man. They can do better than jake, that’s for sure.

    david Says:

    If it wasn’t for jake, she wouldn’t be with anyone right now, only an ignorant bobo like jake would ruin his career the way he is. No man would put up with general witherspoon, not to forget the fact that she is the sexless woman in Hollywood.Reese’s career ia growing due to the fact that she is with jake, while jake’s career died the day he got together with Reese, his days in the movie industry are counted and is obvious his movies are going to bomb,sorry,Jake and Reese’s fans, but that is the truth, wait and see…..,.

    stela Says:

    Nobody can say that Reese or Jake ´s career is going to ruin.
    Reese movies are still making money. On the other hand, Jake is young and a man can work a lot in Hollywood.
    I bet mainly in Jake that he will win an Oscar one day and this time is coming soon. His movies didn´t go too bad in box office (TDA, BBM, Zodiac, Jarhead for example went well in box office).

    wHortensia Says:

    You really shouldn’t post people’s street addresses

    My dear, star’s street address are easily found on the net. Nothing confidential about them. Except Jake’s. He has hidden away somewhere on Woodrow Wilson Dr or maybe he just lives with his girlfriends of the moment. I don’t think he lives with Austin.
    I am amused by people who think a guy can’t have friends of the same sex without being a homo.

  62. 62
    wHortensia Says:

    David you are so wrong wrong wrong. Reese’s big successes came when she was married to Ryan, not now when she is with Jake. She doesn’t need him one bit for her Hollywood success. In fact he isn’t all that big a star in Hollyweird; he makes a constant stream of movies, but most of them don’t earn much. BTW is his movie “Nailed” ever going to come out? He ought to be doing the talk shows to promote it. And he did something else recently (before Prince of Arabia or Iran or Iraq or whatever) that also should be coming out but isn’t. You don’t win in Hollywood doing movies that never see the light of day. And NO, he will never get an Oscar. The closest he has gotten and ever will to an Oscar was in Brokeback and there the movie was great because of Ledger. And the director and the Canadian scenery.

  63. 63
    wHortensia Says:

    Reese was paid 5 million for Legally Blond; since then she has been paid 14-15 million for every movie she has done. The only figure for Jake that I have seen is 3 million for Jarhead. She is a top level actor; he is not. Her recent movies have all been profitable: 4Xmases cost 80 million to make and has taken in 163 million. Monsters and Alients cost 175 million and has taken in so far 236 million. Rendition took in only 27 million, probably less than it cost to make. Zodiac cost 65 million and took in 84 million so it make a small profit. Reese is doing him a favor by allowing him to be seen with her all the time.

  64. 64
    Hitch Says:


    if Reese was too good, Rendition would have done more money.
    In my opinion, Reese can be in top of her career but she can´t do more than she is doing now, on the other hand Jake is more young and has good perspective better than Reese. He is younger 5 years than her.
    P.S. Ledger was great actor but, in fact, he won Oscar cause he´s dead. If he was alive , been young and handsome, he wouldn´t have won Oscar. Academy loves young – sometime not too good – actresses but they prefer matures, sometimes uglies, actors. If they were young and mainly handsome maybe they´ll have to wait a long time or became ugly like Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron did.

  65. 65
    wHortensia Says:

    Jake needs to make a movie that makes lots of money. If Prince of Persia bombs, his future will be very iffy. Hollywood likes winners, and it dumps losers. Reese is a winner; Jakey is still a question mark.

    Chanoyu Says:



    I hate to brake it to you but, listen we are actually in the 21st century not in the 1950s, 35 is not the age limit for having babies and trust me not all heterosexual human beings, male or female want babies.

  67. 67
    Chanoyu Says:


    wHortensia, honestly, have you no taste? How on earth can you compare mainstream fodder like Legally Blonde or Aliens and Monsters with actual proper films that any self-respecting, normal, educated person will want to be entertained by?
    See, Jake already has money, he’s not greedy and what he has is fine by him; what he’s aiming at right now is prestige and ‘indie-cred’. He already has a cult following. Ten, 20 or 30 years from now if you were an actor would you prefer to be remembered for what, for Legally Blonde? Honestly, I would hideeeee………………
