Jake Gyllenhaal: Los Angeles Arrival!

Jake Gyllenhaal: Los Angeles Arrival!

Jake Gyllenhaal exits LAX International Airport after arriving on a flight from NYC on Friday (January 7) in Los Angeles.

The day before, the 30-year-old recently single actor made his way through New York on the subway. Who knew Jake was a straphanger?

Anne Hathaway recently described the time she spent with Jake on the set of Love & Other Drugs as an “intellectual orgy.”

“We talked about our own experiences with love and intimacy, about what turned us on and what didn’t,” Anne said. “So it was completely open from the get-go. Jake described it as a kind of intellectual orgy and I think that sums it up best!”

    Your snarky comment about Jake being “recently single” sucks, jared. He went out several times with a girl over a six week period. That is NOT a relationship. And you really don’t know if he was also seeing other people because Taylor’s PR machine was so busy creating their fairytale with Us Magazine’s help. That girl should be embarrassed for trying to run game on Jake. He is one of the nicest guys around. I am SO glad he pulled the plug on her and I don’t care anything about her being upset. Shame on her.

    So happy for him that he got rid of that idiot. She used him to get her name out there as usual. And now she will write a song about him, of course in her usual teenage style lyrics. Oh ya, she is such a wonderful writer… NOT!!!!!! can’t sing either…

    So is he back in LA to scout out new beards and to arrange a few more photo ops for the gossip mags and then say he doesn’t want any attention? Hey Jake I used to like you more when you just participated in the photo ops quietly. But your ultra fake romance, ultra staged photos ops and then having your PR drop a story that you didn’t like all the media attention turned me off. Being a hypocrite doesn’t become you

    @Annie:

    You know, Taylor “dated” Joe Jonas, Jon Mayer, & Taylor Lautner. Yet you save all your outrage and nasty comments about “beards” for Jake, who only dated her as a favor to his pal Gwyneth Paltrow, for less than six weeks.

    Taylor, Inc, the publicity machine, constantly hooks Taylor up with guys who are hot and famous, for whatever reason, and pretends she’s dating them when she isn’t. She works at being popular. The reason she’s so famous is because she is constant going after publicity.

    Her fansites spammed Twitter constantly, with lies about Jake buying her expensive gifts like some silly guitar for $10,000 (not ture) or some $100,000 bracelet!(not true.) until his own rep had to directly deny it. Taylor likes living her life on the red carpets, and the tabloids. Jake doesn’t. He doesn’t like to be pushed into something by some weird, agressive young girl either. Even Joe Jonas said she was too pushy.

    You’re very ignorant to talk about Jake bearding, because you don’t know anything about him and you’re just repeating garbage from some of the nastiest gossip bloggers out here. You need a better class of reading material.

    Jake has a reputation as one of the nicest guys in H’wood. He played a gay guy in a movie, and he’s been picked on for it by certain people who really hate gays, ever since. (And yes, there are gay guys who hate being gay.) Jake said he is straight. You are calling him a liar. That is pretty low. It’s too bad we live in such a poisoned climate that a man has to actually say if he is straight or gay. That is pretty D@mned sick.

    Is it me or does Jake not look happy. I think the paps should leave him and Taylor alone right now. I miss them dating. Oh well, I hope they remained friends.

    He has a house there, but he seems more often to be in NYC where his sister and mother live.

    @pickles: Um, you act like you know them both personally. Until you do, don’t cut Taylor down. I think she and Jake both are nice. Their relationship didn’t work out and now they have gone their own ways. There is no reason to cut anyone down.

  23. 23
    It's COLD!! Says:

    A New York City based actress tweeted on Monday before their big breakup that Jake used Taylor and dumped her because he didn’t need her anymore. Taylor apparently had no clue. I seriously hope this isn’t true. I would like to think he is a great guy and that he and Taylor will remain as friends.

    Gabriella Says:

    Too bad Heath isn’t alive still they could hang out in NY. I think Jake should just move there since he spends most of his time there now anyways and his thing with Reese is long over.

    Ooookay Says:

    Hey #19, you should tell your bosses at CAA to give you a raise after that you should get a raise after that rant. I don’t know Jake personally (as I’m sure you don’t either), but I’m sure he’s a very nice person. Doesn’t change the fact that he goes along with the PR arranged photo ops. His 2 1/2 year PR romance with Reese was photo op after photo op. And please don’t insulty intelligence by trying to say that the US Weekly cover shoot with Taylor Swift (another media wh*re) wasn’t staged. Thanksgiving day Brooklyn streets are very crowded. Did all the people cross the street so Jake and company and the paps wouldn’t be bothered?

    JakeSuks Says:

    Hey all you guys talk about him like he’s sooooo nice and I bet he’s the most ego sick jerk out there. If he doesn’t want his privates spread all over the tabs and media he should date UN famous people. Yeah right he doesn’t want all the attention. Phony Faker….

    pickles Says:

    #25, I do NOT know Jake personally, but I’m a huge fan of his, so I’ve learned a lot about him, as much as anyone can know. As a fan. I just get really disgusted with people who accuse him of dating women as beards to hide that he’s gay. He is straight. He said so. I believe him.

    Do the people who claim he uses women as beards know him personally? How do they know so much about his private sex life ? They don’t. Yet they are calling him a liar. How do they know? Why should they care ? They’re acting as if something would be wrong with being gay which there isn’t.

    I don’t like to see anyone, especially someone who I’m a fan of, get mistreated. 99% of us posting don’t know Jake or Taylor personally. Taylor’s fans get upset when she’s criticized, well Jake’s fans are no different.

    I also know from going on twitter, that her fansites were definitely spamming twitter talking about all the fake gifts. And I read his rep’s denial. IMO, I think he definitely was not prepared for the intense, constant publicity machine. When the magazines said there was way too much publicity, and it bothered him, he was talking about this tidal wave from Taylor, Inc.

    It is way beyond the normal publicity. If Taylor thinks this is how her life is supposed to be, and her fans think this is the way she should live, then I feel very sorry for her. Four guys have walked away from her. Maybe she should slow down and try to figure out why. She says she “doesn’t talk about her personal life” but she doesn’t need to. She promotes it in every other way.

    I don’t “work for CAA” I’m just a fan. What’s your excuse for being so hostile and argumentative. if you don’t like Jake why bother to waste time here.

    Jake's a cutie Says:

    I agree with Pickles, well said. The “gay accusations’ are just that made by so called jake fans who claim they need him to come out because it will help other gay people. By yet those same ‘fans’ consonantly insult the man and wish his career harm.

    The New York actress is probably jealous of the time spent with Taylor, she upset because Jake didn’t spend time with her. If there was any ‘using” going on, it went both ways. Don’t forget Taylor was releasing her Cd when the story began to break about the couple. Stop feeling sorry for Taylor, she knows exactly what she is doing. She’s the younger Reese but whiner. I still don’t believe John Mayer did anything to her except drop her because the girl is mental. How can you not see it? First Joe Jonas, I mean if a guy has to have his mother do the breaking up, the girl must be pretty obsessive.

    But Jake, if you don’t won’t attention, stop dating famous blond blue eyed “it” girls, its kind of big egoish and sooner than later your clams of wanting privacy becomes a little circumspect. I am sure there are plenty of non famous blonde blue-eyed beauties out there.

    LaFonda Says:

    IMO what these people do in private ain’t none of our biz and if they gay what’s the big deal anyway you can’t help who you fall in love with it jus happen. Ain’t nothin wrong with love at all and I never bash make fun whatever of anybodys love that ain’t right. If they with a man or woman that their biz not anybody else.

    Looks like the Jake is straight brigade is out in force tonight to protect Jake’s “honor” even though most people can see he is a phony liar who beards with more famous women just to get attention and run away from the gay.

    DON’T KNOW WHY PEOPLE ALWAYS HATING ON TAYLOR? WHY DID SHE DO TO YOU?

    THAT IS UNNECESSARY AND IMMATURE

    MillicentMartin Says:

    I just lol at these stories about him. It is so godawful obvious he likes the d1ck and what makes it so pathetic is he is a LIAR and that’s so wrong to try to persuade yourself and others you are not who you are. That’s what makes me mad at him. Now if it was 40 or more years ago yeah I could see why stars had to hide, but now it’s shameful that they feel they have to.

    hal Says:

    @guest:

    I soooo agree with you guest! Jake wants a private life. I get and understand that. But he’s been in this business long enough to know that if you go out and reportedly pursue not only one of the biggest but also one of the youngest stars currently in the music industry, while at the same time you’re promoting a movie about love and sex and NOT expect the media and press to jump all over that “romance” then you’re basically living in a fool’s paradise. And then to reportedly dump her for the very two reasons why he probabaly should not have been dating her in the first place, if he wished to maintain a private life, it doesn’t make Taylor look bad, it makes Jake look like a jerk. He’s dumping her for two things she can’t help: her fame and her youth.

  51. 51
    hal Says:

    @Carmen:

    Carmen I agree. Even after five years when I see Jake I always see Heath. On one hand that’s a lovely thing. But on the other it just shows that despite five years and five new films, so far, Jake has yet to make a film that matches the notoriety and fame of Brokeback Mountain.

    Not gay! Says:

    @pickles:

    Exactly. These gay rumors about Jake are so stupid,..all because he played one! Like Reese would have been with him over 2 yrs, if that was true…How can people be so damn stupid!!! Taylor was way too young for him…Reese a little old for him. he needs a woman his own or close to his 30 yrs. he does seem like a really nice, down to earth guy. I can’t stand these posters who think everytime a celeb walks the streets with a spouse, girl friend, or their kids, it’s a “photo op’!!! Again, how stupid!! How are they supposed to move about??? In a plastic bubble?? Idiots, the papps are always stalking them and finding out where they are, and they wait. it’s not the celebs fault. only some known stars give out info to be photographed, I doubt very much Jake does.

    I think Jake is seriously hot! People who claim he’s gay don’t know anything about him. No matter how loud you shout, or how many times you say it, and try to bully people, you won’t change anyone’s minds. People don’t like to be bullied.

    I am pretty sure people who are saying Jake’s gay, hate gays. No matter what they say. They claim he’s gay because it’s the worst thing they can think of to say about him. They want to hurt him. For no reason at all.

    Like someone else said, four guys dumped Taylor. Why pick on Jake. Why criticize him for stuff you THINK happened, when we don’t know the whole story or real reasons he walked away. We only know what the magazines make up, which doesn’t even make sense most of the time.

    I like Jake. I don’t care about his private life. People who insist he must be gay, can insist all you want but you won’t make it true.

    Should've moved slower! Says:

    It seems that Jake moved very quickly with Swifty, even having her with family at Thanksgiving. I hate that he hurt her, I’m sure she thought he was serious about her. His lame excuse about media attention is pathetic. Be a man Jake!

You are just a mean and awful making that statement about people you dont know a rats azz about by claiming they are saying these things just to bash Jake. I like Jake and I have a right to think what I will about him as a celeb as do you.

    Well, he said he is straight, and he said it more than once and the harpies around here still bash him, and bully his fans when we support him. So since he said it, and I no reason or agenda not to believe him, then you obviously ignore what he actually says in pubic interviews and you are calling him a liar. You are acting hateful towards gays if you bash someone using the possibility of being gay as a way to harm them. He has a right to his own life. People who are on this crusade are nothing but bullies.

    Mark Says:

    Jake has the need to be seen with high profile women. He isn’t that good of an actor and hasn’t had a hit movie in over 5 years. These women keep his face out there so the public is reminded of him. He does have a fan base like all actors but for the most part I don’t think many people think he’s that good. He really needs to try and find a movie with a good script, director etc. that needs a supporting actor which he can do pretty well. Yeah, I know he got a gg nod but that’s for comedy/musical and even that surprised me that he was picked. Until he gets a supporting role in a very good movie he’s going to have flops and have to be seen with some more super star women for publicity.

    Not too long ago he was so buff and now he looks really scrawny. What happens to someone’s body when it goes thru that drastic change? I mean in POP he was huge and now he’s almost skinny looking.
