Taylor Swift confronted Jake Gyllenhaal at the Vanity Fair Oscar party


These are some photos of Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift (separately) at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party Sunday night. Jake was invited to the party because he’s a movie star. Swifty was invited… because she wanted to see Jake, I guess. My take: Swifty’s Zuhair Murad minidress screams “PAY ATTENTION TO ME, JAKE! I HAVE BISCUITS FOR YOU.” Anyway, everyone has a different take on what went down at the VF party – the same party where Reese Witherspoon and her fiancé Jim Toth were. People Magazine reported this version yesterday, which is likely the publicist-sanctified version:

When exes Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal bumped into each other at one of the Oscars’s most exclusive afterparties, it didn’t look like they were engaging in idle party chatter.

“They were outside near the restroom having a discussion,” a guest at the Vanity Fair bash tells PEOPLE. “It seemed a bit more serious – it certainly wasn’t a ‘Hi, how are you?’ talk.”

The musician, 21, and the actor, 30, started dating last fall but broke up in December.

On Sunday night, Gyllenhaal and Swift were back together for a short visit at the party, and while there was no overt affection between the two. “It seemed like they were catching up,” says the source, “sorting something out.”

Soon after their chat, Gyllenhaal headed out while Swift stayed and partied with two girlfriends. “They completely kept to themselves,” says the guest. “She couldn’t be bothered by anyone.”

So, the nice People Magazine version is that Swifty was some kind of Jake-seeking missile and she ambushed him at the party and forced him into some kind of serious conversation when he really just wanted to butch it up with other biscuits. Jake even had a “date” – according to Us Weekly, his date was an “unidentified young, curly-haired brunette.” Page Six’s version is basically the same as People’s, only there’s this little tidbit: “Another source reports they stood a foot away from each other, but couldn’t look at each other. ‘It looked like they had just had a heart-to- heart talk. There were handlers and security all around them trying to keep everybody away,’ our source explained.” It just feels like Swifty went to the party just to ambush Jake into talking to her. Which is kind of… tacky. She really is immature, right?

    Write a song about it. I’m sure you will. I’m sure it’s always the guys fault, right? Poor, Poor Taylor.

  2. Sarah says:

    They were an “item” for like what, two months? Is that even a relationship? Ugh, whatever.

  3. kelbear says:

    Taylor needs to lighten her hair. She looked much better with her lighter hair.

  4. Abby says:

    Oh taylor. really? I was wondering why she was there… I hope this is made up. I’m embarrassed for her.

  5. Marie says:

    Jesus was there a requirement that all the women at this event must be ghost white? They all look they they were dipped in powder.

  6. mln76 says:

    Well she is 19 or 20 right. Who didn’t do that shit at that age. Jakey is the one who was immature for fake messing with her in the first place.

  7. Crash2GO2 says:

    Whatever happened to Adam Young? I hope she at least thanked him for the lovely Valentine.

    Jake is getting what he deserves, considering her age when he started messing with her. That will teach him a thing or two. We don’t need another Wilmer on our hands.

  8. Jackson says:

    And what, pray tell, does a Taylor Swift Confrontation consist of? Putting her hand on her hip and giving a defiant fluff of her hair before she turns and walks away? I bet she went into the restroom and wrote something mean about him in the stall, too. Ohhhhh, the drama.

  9. lucy2 says:

    They seemed an odd couple to begin with. Hollywood seems just like high school, everyone’s dated everyone else and it’s occasionally awkward!

  10. Isabel says:

    Ponies, unicorns, JAKEBROKEMYHEART, popcorn, dollies, I love rainbows!


  11. Rita says:

    “They were outside near the restroom…”

    Coffee goes right through me as well.

  12. devilgirl says:

    Gee Swifty, move the heck on. Get over it.

  13. loopygorilla says:

    girlfriend should just write a song about it and move on.

    romeo met juliet and she stab him and called him and a**wipe, and kick him in the face.

    blah blah thats a start… feel free to use that taylor, its a remake of your other song.

  14. Quest says:

    Oh crap…let it go already Swifty. She probably started off with one of her old hits when she saw him:

    “I remember when we were sitting there at the ….”

    Oh good grief, Jake is probably saying that it wasn’t worth the affair.

  15. Mel says:

    @min76 – spot on. The girl’s just 21, she’s still learning, give her a break. On the other hand Jake needs to grow up and grow some.

  16. Andrea says:

    I think we’ve all done stuff like that at that age.

  17. hairball says:

    Ugh, the squinty eyes!!!!!!

    They needed ‘handlers and security’ to keep everyone away?? Omg, who gives a f*ck??

  18. FakeJohnLocke says:

    To sum it up, 2 people were seen talking, not really sure what they were talking about, then they parted ways and did other stuff.

    Got it.

  19. wow....really? says:

    Of course she’s immature. She’s what . . 20 or 21? I shudder to thing of all the stupid things I did at that age.

  20. grazi says:

    He has to deal with it. He is the grown up who messed around with a teenager, and one that still behaves like a pre-teen. I hope she will keep annoying the hell out of him.

  21. Melanie says:

    Negotiating the contract. She can’t move on until she gets it in writing.

  22. JenJen says:

    “Serious”? How long did they “date” a month? No wonder they dump her on the phone.

  23. Oi says:

    People, her age can no longer be an excuse. 21 is old enough to know that HS is OVER. This was not the time or place for a ‘confrontation’, and she knew everyone was watching. She’s been at this too long to not know how to play the press. She lives off of making trouble and playing coy about it. Put on your big girl panties, buy a big girl dress, and grow up Swift.

  24. tapioca says:

    I guess she didn’t know she was his beard then?

  25. Marjalane says:

    You gotta love the “important” teenage drama! And you know there was an all night bitch session where she and her girlfriends went over and over every detail.

  26. Justaposter says:

    Ahh come on gang, she is just a kid. How many times have we done stoopid stuff at that age? I think many of us have at least one “Oh my gawd… I did what?” story regarding some guy.

    I give her a pass because of her age. And it’s not like she pulled an Xtina (drunk and mouthy) or did a face plant into the center pieces.

  27. guesty says:

    Lol @ Jackson. Is that Kris Kardashian-Jenner in the background?

  28. loopygorilla says:

    i used to just ignore her..but why must she be soo pitiful and annoying and force me to dislike her…

    she is 21 yrs old. grow up.

    life’s not a fairytale, people break up, get over it.

  29. eja102 says:

    I do not agree that age determines maturity.
    I know some people who are many years older than me, and make me wonder how they managed to survive. My boyfriend is 20 and is miles ahead of me in terms of overall maturity.
    At 22, I have bouts of “what the hell was I thinking?” but…

    I said before that this girl plays the victim, and I still believe that.

  30. Jane says:

    She is 21 not some F*ck child and just because she acts like a preteen does not mean she is one people need to stop treating her like one she need to grow up. Just like if Lindsay Lohan mom keeps babying her and telling her that whatever she does is not her felt which she been doing seine she was 21 and probable before that then she never going to grow up and take responsibility for herself and get the help that she needs.

  31. Quest says:

    She is 21 – hell you are old enough to make intelligent decisions and be mature. Being 21 is no excuse of immaturity – most girls at her age already experienced so much in life and have a good head on their shoulders not in their vadge

  32. flutters says:

    Adele’s only a year older than Taylor but based on her music and interviews seems A LOT more mature. I think 21’s old enough to be able to expect a person to be over the drama. That stuff’s more a matter of personality than age IMO.

  33. whatyousay?! says:

    i was falling for the rumors that gyllenhall really is gay but then I remembered, back in the day, being in the bathroom of a restaurant where kirsten dunst and he had snuck off to makeout etc..

    but i’d have to agree, he’s getting his just desserts for dating a young’n

  34. heatheradair says:

    that girl is a waste of an amazing body. take those legs and fat-free arms and give them to someone INTERESTING, who’d know how to dress them. ugh.

  35. mln76 says:

    I am guessing the people who are being hardest on her are closer to her age (I am sure I’ll be corrected if I am wrong) . As a woman well into her 30s I can remember times I was in that situation or was back-up for a girlfriend in that situation. It’s very normal at that age and I am the first one to laugh at my ridiculous behavior back in the day I am sure Swifty will too.

  36. SHump says:

    She’s practically a child still, ofc this is exactly the sort of thing she’d do. Maybe older men should take a hint and STOP DATING HER, ffs.

  37. dee says:

    why does everyone love this chic? She’s so annoying! I hate her music and I can’t stand her!! Not to mention she’s a hoebag! she’s only 21 and has dated so many guys already! including the biggest douchelord of them all John Mayer! she’s not as squeaky clean as everyone makes her out to be!

  38. operagirl says:

    I know most people hate her–I think she’s a sweet girl in a not-sweet biz, and so what if she has some growing up to do? Now’s the time to do it!–but she really is beautiful in an old school way. If I were a part of the fashion industry, I would go out of my way to dress her. She has a very elegant look and body.

    @mln76: ITA!!!

  39. mln76 says:

    @dee I can’t stand her music at all and I find her annoying. I just don’t want to put her down for something I did at that age too.

  40. Sarah says:

    Unfortunately, I too have been that girl many a time,so I will not judge. Hopefully, it is just a lesson learned.BTW, her skin looks great:)

  41. brin says:

    @min76….I agree, give her a break, she’s young and she falls hard(and it’s always in the public eye). Everything is tragic at her age.

  42. AngelMay says:

    Confronted him for what? Wrecking her career as a professional celebrity beard?

    Forget these two I’d rather hear about Madonna and Gwyneth. Did they give each other the invisible treatment and why?

  43. hellen says:

    Yes, everything is tragic and drama-making at that age, I remember it well (and shudder).

  44. Liana says:

    To sum it up, 2 people were seen talking, not really sure what they were talking about, then they parted ways and did other stuff.


    Exactly. And she was there because she was invited.

    I wasn’t as flighty and dramatic as Taylor when I was her age, but I had a pretty rough early childhood and grew up fast. I did, however, have friends who were like she is. Every romance was “the one,” every man was Prince Charming, and when it ended, it was the end of the world. Until the next cute guy came along. No big deal.

  45. the original bellaluna says:

    Quick! We need White Oprah (I mean “Innocent”) to add Taylor to her “Leave Her Alone; She’s Just a Child!” routine. Maybe she could even weasel her way into a portion of Swifty’s earnings.

    (Quite un-nice, I’m aware, but I’ve no patience for false drama.)

  46. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Maybe he stole her favorite thong and was wearing it at the party. And she was all like, Give ’em back and he’s like Hell no Bitch, they fit perfectly.

  47. fabchick says:

    It’s something about this girl I don’t like. I have a feeling she is not as innocent as she would like everyone to believe.

  48. gg says:

    @Marie – tacky, tacky. Get used to people having all different shades of skin color honey, and you might have less angst on the subject. Perhaps you think rolled in Cheetos dust looks better?? Go on over and cheer on Xtina then.

    BTW, I’m pale and I’m not dying my skin orange, ain’t getting leather-bag face or melanoma, over 50 and don’t have a single wrinkle on my face. I doubt anybody would make fun of you if you were naturally dark.

  49. Jenny says:

    Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were there as well. She was there because she was invited and probably wanted to have fun. Jesus, wouldn’t you go too if you could? It just saddens me that people are going to harp on a celebrity that actually sets a good example. She doesn’t get publicly drunk, isn’t cracked up, and doesn’t dress like a 20 dollar hooker. But I suppose as the saying goes “haters gonna hate.”

  50. Bailey says:

    we’ll she certainly was wearing the right dress. if she wants to ambush him, maybe push him into the limo and distract with champagne and her long legs.
    she annoys too!

  51. uh says:

    Uh. Wait. I’m sorry. Why is this immature? She has the right to say her piece as she was one half of the relationship too and was just as valid a part, and if he just fucked off without giving her a chance to do so thats not particularly mature. Some (not all of course) men have the tendency to be extremely into a relationship, spending every hour together, and then just walk away and refuse any attempts by the other person to talk, driving that person to slightly embarassing measures. As to just “getting over it already” come on. If you really care/are invested its pretty hard to just miraculously get over someone instantly, its the nature of love/infatuation.

    I’m not even a TSwifty fan but I don’t see how this is immature. Its not like she pulled him out into the middle of the floor and made a scene. Poor girl was probably just confused, needed closure, and it was the only way she could talk to him.

  52. floridagirl says:

    so how did she get an invitation to this party? Or did she buy it? At a party with 3 exes? It looks like Jake was her target as no one says anything about her talking to the other two. She ran poor Jake out of the party and he is the movie star, not her!She should be embarrassed.

  53. Joe says:

    I think Jake used he for PR. She is very kindhearted/naive girl still. I can see how she could have fallen for this. Lets not forget she practically grew up in public eye. These type of girls/boys usually need more time to mature.

  54. brenda says:

    She was invited to the party because she is a Grammy-winning artist. Even the Kardashits were invited to parties.People are giving her crap because she was seen talking to him? No one even knows what they talked about. Wouldn’t she be more immature if she completely ignored him? FakeJohneLocke is right…this is such a non-story.

  55. normades says:

    “The musician, 21, and the actor, 30, started dating last fall but broke up in December.”

    That’s just a fancy way of saying they dated for all the month of November.

  56. Jujube says:

    She seems like a major psycho.

  57. Lucy says:

    It seems that everytime one of her super-serious-relationships-i-am-getting-married-tomorrow ends, she writes a song about it and it is usually the guy’s fault…Eventually, we will see who plays who in: it’s not you, it’s me… lol

    Taylor: grow up, please…

  58. Jules says:

    Wow, I can’t believe there are still people on the planet who think Jake is into women. The thing with Taylor was a total showmance just like all the others he’s been in. He is really in love with Austin Nichols. He is praying Taylor will write a song about him to make him sound like a butch heartbreaker…that’s probably what their secret convo was about.

  59. Jeannified says:

    Immature? The girl’s 21 years old. She’s just acting her age. She was crazy about him. I can understand what she did. I was once young and in love too!

  60. Erica says:

    She is Immature I’m 21 and I never act like that nor would I ever, so please don’t say that how 21 year old act because we all don’t only the immature ones do. If that the way she acts after only dating for 2 months (if they were ever really dating) then I can see why he dumped her, hell I dump I guy he acted like her after only knowing each other for such a little time.

  61. Jenny says:

    All you people say that she confused, needed closure or is acting her age ex all sound like Dina Lohan its just sickening.

  62. Cletus says:

    Hell, even when I was her age I had more pride than THAT. If some dude played me like that, I’d have NEVER let it show. I would never give anyone the satisfaction.

  63. Becky says:

    What’s the big deal? I’m not a Taylor Swift fan, but I don’t see why this is even news. Wow-if it had been me at age 21 I unfortunately would have done much worse. I would have gotten completely loaded and made out with another guy in front of my ex (and everyone else) only to wake up feeling very ashamed the next day. Yes, I was very immature (; I’m not a fan of Swift’s music, but it’s not like she put on a big screaming, drunken show.

  64. Emily says:

    Sure Tayloy can go to this party and she has the right to make serious conversation with Jake,but she chose the damn wrong time and wrong place.There are a lot of Jake’s friends,coworkers,A-list stars,and of course,media reporters in the room.If Taylor just say Hello to Jake,I am sure Jake won’t ignore her.Jake always keeps low-key after every breakup.Now Taylor force Jake to make private(ok…not private)talk to her.She knew media will see it and keep guessing and making up stories.This is what she want.

  65. floridagirl says:

    There were some true movie stars at this event and there is more talk about this girl who doesn’t even sing well(makes alot of money though) than the movie star when the Oscars are about MOVIES. This is an example of why Jake broke up with her anyway because of all the drama that surrounds her. I wonder how many movie starts don’t go to these events because of stuff like this? So she won grammy’s a couple of yrs ago..she hasn’t won much since then.

  66. Micki says:

    Two months together is a hormonal storm perhaps but hardly a relationship. I can’t imagine that they were the WHOLE time together and not just now and again. I expect a song about it anytime soon but she seems like a revengeful clinger, 21 or not.

  67. Nicky says:

    Taylor attended a few pre-Oscar parties over the weekend – one of which was hosted by CAA agent Bryan Lourd. A lot of celebs (and non-celebs) associated with CAA were there, including Jake, Reese and Jim Toth. The following morning, a story broke that Taylor and Reese was seen talking to one another about Jake whilst he was supposedly standing no more than a foot away from them. This turned out to be false because Taylor turned up late to the CAA party, by which time both Jake and his date had already left. Fast forward to Sunday, Taylor shows up at the same party as Jake (again) only this time she manages to corner him at a public event to talk about personal matters. Something she could easily have done away from prying eyes (and ears).
    I could be reaching here, but I think Taylor had every intention of “bumping into” Jake at one of those parties knowing full well the conversation would be seen by all to speculate about. Why bother going to the CAA party so late in the evening, especially when she’s no longer repped by them? Interesting also that Jake was at both of those parties at the same time as Reese and Jim yet there are no stories anywhere about awkward run-ins with either of them at any point but stories were leaked about Taylor and Jake.
    I believe Taylor is generally a nice girl, albeit immature for her age however; I’ve no doubt that she’s incredibly media savvy and works hard with her PR team to ensure the press are talking about her.

  68. Elleh says:

    Am I the only one that thinks Taylor Swift has the psycho-bitch gene?

  69. Dani says:

    Most of you are right, I think Taylor is alittle immature, even for her age. Please grow up little girl!!!
