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.

They need one of those bikes for two. These guys are so cute. They give BFF a new definition. :)

Please Jared,
don’t try to spoil this by mentioning the beard.

“They give BFF a new definition”



# 5

they are adorable together.

Jake if you’re reading this: If you are bearding with Reese, stop it!She’s not good for you!

# 7

I’m sure this will be a ride…………………………………..TO NOWHERE & NOTHING, folks!!

# 8

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!

HERE WE GO LU-BEE LOU @ 04/13/2009 at 1:19 pm

if jake is gay, he should just come out and say so, and if this austin is his boyfriend, they make a cute just jared style couple! lolololololol!

Loving those bike shorts Jake!

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??

Jaustin jaustin jaustin @ 04/13/2009 at 1:45 pm

They are so great together. Never get of enough of them together
They are the hottest couple in Hollywood.

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.

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.

“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” ?

Jake is sooooooooooooooooo HOTT!!!!!!

wow, reese witherspoon was right…he seems to have a big “nose” :P

#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…

rionemesis @ 04/13/2009 at 2:49 pm

and i was already hot with this weather xD, Jake is simply yummy!

mmmmmmm hmm. i wonder if there was any post cycling pork sword dueling.

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.

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

Jaustin lives on! I love these two together, they seem tight.

fauxmance @ 04/13/2009 at 3:55 pm

“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.

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

hollywood pr @ 04/13/2009 at 4:48 pm

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

So nice to see Jake and Austin together again!

And “hollywood pr” you know that how?.

wHortensia @ 04/13/2009 at 5:24 pm

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’.

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

wHortensia @ 04/13/2009 at 5:33 pm

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.

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

wHortensia @ 04/13/2009 at 5:45 pm

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.

wHortenis and Blaire you are both wrong.

Jake and Austin have been friends ever since they filmed Day After Tomorrow together. So why are you assuming their friendship isn’t genuine? Get a life

Caren, how do you know Jake was actually coming out of Reese gated community, do you live there too?

Caren, how do you know that is Reese’s gated community? Do you live there too?

Jaustin fan @ 04/13/2009 at 6:26 pm

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

wHortensia @ 04/13/2009 at 6:31 pm

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.

wHortensia @ 04/13/2009 at 6:39 pm

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.

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.

Google street map is brilliant.

Reese lives in Brentwood one day and Santa Monica the next. Funny how that works to fit every time to fit the crap being written.

Austin has a nice little tushy!

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.

Reese lives in Brentwood.

Dear God, Jake looks so good it’s insane

Aw, they make such cute couple, Toothy Tile and the BF, minus the Beard..she was taking the day off.

God bless Jake! His butt is amazing! And Austin is not bad too!
Of course, these guys make me feel good much more than Reese.
Please, Jared, go on with kind of pics. It´s a bed of roses :)

Black & white @ 04/13/2009 at 11:52 pm

How much bs people said here.
They are just two greek god with their bikes for a ride.

Love Jake and Austin, they’re so hot together.

Dump the beard already Jake.

herknessmes @ 04/14/2009 at 3:04 am

I love how Jared is careful to mention “Austin Nichols” swiftly followed by “girlfriend-Reese-Witherspoon”!!!

Panic much?

I am in Jake and Austin heavy. The guys are so sexy!

You really shouldn’t post people’s street addresses. That is a terrible thing to do.

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.

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.

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.

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…..,.

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 @ 04/17/2009 at 12:31 pm

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.

wHortensia @ 04/17/2009 at 12:38 pm

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.

wHortensia @ 04/17/2009 at 1:03 pm

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.


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.

wHortensia @ 04/18/2009 at 3:49 am

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.



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.


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………………

Is Jake trying to be the next Lance Armstrong or something? He’s always riding his bike.
