Jake Gyllenhaal butched it up at the Globes parties, flirting with every girl


Fresh from his unicorn-and-tears-filled breakup with Taylor Swift, Jake Gyllenhaal decided it would be best to not fly solo at the Golden Globes. So he brought a “friend”. More specifically, an “ex-girlfriend” named Jenny Lewis (in the photo above), who Jake allegedly dated many, many years ago, and who he has remained “friends” with. There was some muttering that Jenny and Jake might be back on, but that’s not the case:

Jake Gyllenhaal surprised everyone by showing up to the Golden Globes on Jan. 16 with some new arm candy, but Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the date was strictly platonic.

“Jake and ex-girlfriend Jenny Lewis went to the Globes as friends,” a source tells Life & Style. “Jake and Jenny haven’t dated for years. They’re still friends, and they went as friends.”

Jake found himself Hollywood’s hottest bachelor once again after splitting from country cutie Taylor Swift just weeks ago. Could Jake’s broken heart lead him to try to rekindle things with his former flame? Not a chance, according to the source.

“Jenny and Johnny [musician Johnathan Rice] have been together a long time,” says the source to Life & Style. Jenny, a member of the band Rilo Kiley, teamed up with her beau recently to create the group Jenny and Johnny. “They just released a record together in the summer. They haven’t broken up.”

So Jake brought a “just friends” date for the Globes, and the girl has a boyfriend who has no problem letting his girlfriend go to a high-profile event with another dude. Doesn’t that sound like a situation where the girlfriend gets a “pass” to do whatever she wants to with her best gay friend? Whatever, Jake was around a vagina, so now will have to stop asking him about whether or not he got to second base with Taylor Swift’s stuffed koala. RIGHT?!? So Jake put on his big-boy panties and butched it up at the after-parties, “flirting” with every available vagina he could find.

He didn’t win best actor, but Jake Gyllenhaal took the top prize for flirting the night of the Jan. 16 Golden Globe Awards.

“He was talking to so many girls!” a witness tells the new Us Weekly of the actor, 30, who ended his whirlwind romance with Taylor Swift, 21, just two weeks earlier.

“At CAA’s after–party, Jake macked on Maria Menounos — and he was definitely trying with Scarlett Johansson!”

The star — who brought ex Jenny Lewis, 35, to the show (he dated the singer in 2001) — also chatted up Mila Kunis, 27, that night.

Says the source, “Jake seemed interested, but he’s not her type.”

Later, he hit the Chateau Marmont and got close to Brokeback Mountain costar Michelle Williams, 30. Says an insider, “His hand was on her knee!”

Yeah, Jake should really keep his douche hands off of my Mila Kunis. As for Michelle Williams… well, that seems like his “type” right? He likes petite blondes. And Michelle has that wispy, Kiki-Dunst-quality that Jake seems to like too. Should Michelle and Jake happen? Sure. I don’t even care if Jake won’t touch her boobs. After Michelle’s appearance in this God-awful daisy dress, I feel like she needs to mix it up a little.

Now that you’ve heard all about the heterosexual flirting that went down, don’t you feel guilty for thinking that Jake and Ryan Seacrest were cruising each other during the red carpet interview? Yeah. I thought so.

    Toothy tiles will find a new beard and i hope Williams has fired her stylist!

  2. brin says:

    With all that flirting going on, I almost thought he was Gerry Butler….not!

  3. jinni says:

    I wonder if Jenny and Angie got to see each other and say hi, since they were both in Foxfire together.

  4. normades says:

    What is going on with Michelle these days??? I love her but she has been wearing the most god awful dresses. I mean look at that thing???!!!!

  5. gabs says:

    Omg I LOVE Jenny Lewis. Rilo Kiley is awesome.

    Anyways, I really dont want Jake with Michelle! Hes such a douchebag player and shes too fragile for that. Idk he should back off. He should hook up with ScarJo. Scarlett can be a player too and needs a rebound right now.

    Seriously what was Michelle thinking with that dress? Is she playing a joke on us?

  6. LB says:

    I think Jake and Michelle are just really good friends. He’s the godfather to Matilda, after all. I don’t think she would ever go there.

  7. Vee says:

    Can someone clue me in on all the “gay” rumors surrounding Jake? I don’t get it at all. Thanks.

  8. khaveman says:

    Michelle looks slouchy and way too old for her tender years. AND she has a great figure and should be showcasing it. Stupid, stupid dress.

  9. TXCinderella says:

    You would think that Jenny Lewis would wear something a little more classy. The dress she has on looks like something a high school student would wear.

  10. Marjalane says:

    Wow. I didn’t notice that dress on the show….shudder.

    Did you check out Jake’s up and down looks at Gaycrest? That is SUCH a flirt move! His eyes got wide and if a guy was looking at me like that, I would think he was interested. Everything about J.G. screams gay to me; I think his publicist told him to get his ass out there and butch it up!

  11. Bodhi says:

    Jake & Michelle will never happen, they are way too much like brother & sister. I don’t think that Jake is gay so he & ScarJo totally work for me!

    Question re Jenny’s outfit: Is she wearing thigh highs with the tops showing? Or some kind of thigh bracelets?

  12. insidescoop says:

    Oh my god. I had to turn that off at “do you wear a little loin cloth?” banter. Oh just come out of the closet you two! I mean really…

  13. sapphire says:

    Maybe the flirt was charity, given how Michelle looked.

    And I don’t get the faux thigh highs either.

  14. heatheradair says:

    SO GLAD someone else thought the Seacrest interview was total foreplay – they’re both rumoured to be faking relationships with women and the FIRST question Seacrest asks is about being naked? REALLY? And then, yep, it was 3 minutes of straight-up flirting.

    I tried explaining this to my mom during the red carpet show – “don’t you get the irony! they’re both probably GAY – and they’re talking NAKED and SEX SCENES and LOIN CLOTHS! It’s OOKY!”

  15. Hakura says:

    @Khaveman (#8) – Michelle looks slouchy and way too old for her tender years. …Stupid, stupid dress.

    I know, right? She goes from one horrible extreme to the other… one day she’s wearing something that belongs on Matilda, then her great grandmother.

    OMG. That video… Look how close they’re standing o.O I’m honestly not someone who normally jumps on the ‘he’s totally gay’ bandwagon, but jeez. Even I’m convinced he’s at least interested in Seacrest.

    Anyone else think he brought a date as a combination weird message: ‘I’m totally not gay, even though I’m about to climb Ryan Seacrest like brokeback mountain &/or ‘See, I’m OVER Taylor. *I* broke up with *HER*. Was never into her to begin with, regardless of the coffee house cuddle sessions. See what a good actor I am?’

    Either way, he comes across like a douche.

  16. REALIST says:

    Jake looked very uncomfortable with the Ryan Seacrest “flirting”.
    I do get kinda of tired of the Gaydar action in C/B with Jake-I think it’s just because he was in “Brokeback Mountain”. Think of it the opposite way-if you were gay, wouldn’t that be the LAST movie you would want to be in? I dunno. Also, would Reese Witherspoon be anybody’s “beard”? I think not!

  17. Brittany says:

    Just watched this on silent to watch their body language… Ryan sure is touchy feely and familiar-acting with him…

  18. Quest says:

    I think Jake looked a little uncomfortable at times when Ryan was getting touchy…lol. I like Jake’s vibes, it’s cool but I don’t think he is gay.

  19. Javagirl1 says:

    I thought they were tattoos!

  20. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Yeah, Jake’s not Mila’s type because HE’S GAY!!

    You totally caught it Kaiser, sounded like a pass for Jenny to hang out with her famous gay friend.

  21. Devon says:

    I still can’t get over that monstrosity that Michelle wore to the GG’s. Usually she’s really put together well but UGH! Alexa Chung must have been high when she said this was her favourite. Perhaps that would explain why she was as dull as a doorknob. Wanted to get back to bed and smoke more shit.

  22. anti says:

    they made eyes at each other! classic.

  23. REALIST says:

    Is Michelle channeling the Mia Farrow vulnerability thing? Watch AO Scott’s “Critic’s Picks” review of Roman Polanski’s “Rosemary’s Baby”-Michelle has the Mia Farrow look (and demeanor) dead on.
    Oh, and if you haven’t seen the film, it will scare the CRAP out of you…


  24. Sarah says:

    OMG, I was just waiting for Jake and Ryan to start making out. HILARIOUS!

  25. GirlyGIrl says:

    Excellent pic, it’s like the sun is shining from his crotch.

    Nice work Kaiser!

  26. Jeri says:

    He used to at least have an aura of mystery where you could honestly doubt the gossip, now he’s just a douche that “sells” himself to the highest bidder for publicity.

  27. Matt says:

    The sexual tension between Jake and Ryan was strong IMO. Maybe Jake is bi?

    OR maybe this is my imagination playing tricks on me because I want Jake to be flirting with ME!

  28. Elle says:

    I remember a red carpet with Jake and Guillianna R. after Jarhead where GR asked Jake about the Santa Hat (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, rent the movie, tres hot, gay, bi or whatever). He was visibly annoyed with the question. I wonder if he has mellowed with time or if it depends on who’s asking?

  29. Chris says:

    Am I the only one that thinks Michelle and Jake would be kind of ew after the whole Brokeback thing? I mean come on, he movie-boned her now-dead husband. …and isn’t that where Michelle and Heath got together in the first place? Just, ew. No. Way too post-modern for me.

  30. Someone Else says:

    Ok, I haven’t a clue if he’s gay, but that was just weird.

    And Seacrest is horrible. Who did he bl*w to get so rich and powerful? Oh, that’s right — that other weird with women guy, Simon.

  31. MP says:

    This just proves that Jake is indeed gay, as if it wasn’t already obvious.

    Anyway, Johnathan Rice seems super jealous and has a reputation for being stand-offish and rude, especially to guys yelling stuff at Jenny during shows. There’s NO WAY he’d be cool with Jenny going with Jake unless Jake was gay. And they’re definitely still together.

    Just come out Toothy, it’ll be okay…

  32. Angel says:

    Seeing as Heath and Jake were ‘Best Friends Forever’… and she has Matilda with Heath, (and they both hardcore made out with Heath) that would be kinda weird….

  33. briel says:

    Jake is Michelle’s dauthter’s (Matilda) godfather. I’m sure the “hand on her knee” thing was w/o ulterior motives.
    Though I wouldn’t be surprised if he found Scarlett Johansson attractive.
