After this year’s Oscars, some of us began to think that Jake Gyllenhaal’s new girlfriend should be Rachel McAdams. They were co-presenters at the Oscars, and Oprah even scored a joint interview with them where they just seemed… I don’t know, flirty and sweet and perfect for each other. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that’s happening. LaineyGossip is reporting exclusively (through her extensive sources and eyewitnesses spread out around Canada, I think) that Jake is dating his actress Isabel Lucas, who was the chick best known as “Adrian Grenier’s girlfriend” and “the chick who was in Shia LaBeouf’s truck when he got into an accident”. Here’s more:
The McJakey campaign was born after Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal presented together at the Oscars. Unfortunately there will be no McJakey. Not yet. Because it looks like Jakey is tied up with someone else.
Jake is currently shooting a movie in Montreal called Source Code. Last night he was spotted at Garde Manger and I’m told exclusively that he was “all cuddled up” with Isabel Lucas. She’s the actress from Transformers 2. The one who was with Shia LaBeouf on the night he f-cked up his hand in that accident even though she was supposedly dating Adrian Grenier at the time. She is gorgeous.
Jakey was wearing a white shirt over jeans, apparently even hotter in real life. When he wasn’t wrapped around her, he was trying to get Isabel to dance with him. She seemed shy. And he didn’t seem to be missing Reese at all. Or, for that matter, Rachel.
Interestingly and awkwardly enough, Kirsten Dunst, who is also in Montreal working on a different movie, was also there with a girlfriend sitting on the opposite side of the venue. She spent a lot of time on the phone in the bathroom.
Does this make sense? To me, sure. I’ll buy it. Jake’s a single dude, and he can wrap himself around whoever he wants, and I suspect that this Isabel girl is his type. Now, I know a lot of you think Jake Gyllenhaal is gay. I get it, I really do. There was a time when he beeped on my gaydar – which was also the time when I thought he was much too impossibly vanilla to be of any interest. But time passes and you reevaluate your judgments, and now I’m pretty sure Jake is straight. I also think he’s got an interesting type, and one that should be a welcome relief after witnessing too many douches whose “type” is girls like Bombshell McGee or Peaches Geldof. I think Jake’s type is along these lines: petite, blonde or very fair coloring, and conventionally “nice”. Like, he’s got a thing for really “nice girls” – the kind moms love. Jake thought Kirsten Dunst was a “nice girl” but she wasn’t. He thought Reese was a “nice girl” – which she is, but she still didn’t want to marry him. And now he’s moved on to his new nice girl. Good for him.
Here are some photos of Isabel… she really is very pretty, but that hair! Jesus, girl. Get yourself some VO5 hot oil:
