AceShowbiz - Is there trouble in paradise in Jake Gyllenhaal and Jeanne Cadieu's relationship? The "Brokeback Mountain" star has sparked speculation that he and his girlfriend may be calling it quits after he was caught enjoying a dinner date with a mystery woman.
In photos circulating online, the 41-year-old actor was spotted out and about on a lunch date with an unidentified woman on Sunday, January 2. He was seen walking the streets in New York as he made his way to a nearby restaurant for lunch with a stunning brunette.
For the outing, Jake, who hasn't been seen together with Jeanne in some time, wore an oversized black The North Face jacket that he paired with a matching beanie and a comfortable pair of khakis. The "Nightcrawler" star also wore a white N-95 mask covering the majority of his face amid the spike in coronavirus cases and a new surge of the Omicron variant.
His lady companion, in the meantime, didn't seem to mind the mask and was seen laughing and smiling during the date. In the pictures, she was photographed staring into the actor's eyes with a romantic gaze.
Jake's lunch date with the brunette woman came just months after he hinted that he's ready to start a family following his red carpet debut with Jeanne at the premiere of "The Lost Daughter". During the October 4 episode of "The Howard Stern Show", the actor said, "All I want is to be a good husband and a father…That really is what I want."
Jake, who faced backlash after his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift dropped her 10-minute version of "All Too Well" that calls him out as a bad boyfriend, elaborated further, "And now that I have fulfilled a lot of things in my career that I feel comfortable with, I can safely say that." He then admitted, "I don't know if I could have said that before."
Jake, however, remained mum when asked if Jeanne is the one and whether they'll walk down the aisle together. He replied, "There's only so far I'll go as, you know, in talking about it." He then expressed his love for his girlfriend, "I love her so much. She's such a good person."
"And so that's part of the reason why I just adore her. And not at all the main reason but, you know, one of them," Jake went on saying. "The Guilty" actor then added, "I mean, it was great to have her there."
