Jake Gyllenhaal has become the center of dating rumors once again. It seems like if you’re spotted having a good time with the opposite sex, then you’re clearly dating that person.
The actor was spotted out and about with a mystery brunette woman in London on Sunday, Oct. 2, reports Celebuzz. It could be Gyllenhaal’s new girlfriend. The two were photographed walking around in Shoreditch East London and then having lunch at Morito, says the report. Gyllenhaal and the lucky lady went for another walk around the area and were even photographed hugging and laughing together. The pair even wore matching navy blue head-to-toe ensembles as seen in the photos published on Just Jared.

It’s also possible that the two are just good friends. Gyllenhaal has been promoting his latest film, Nocturnal Animals, co-starring Amy Adams and directed by Tom Ford. It was just announced that Gyllenhaal, 35, was cast alongside his former Brothers co-star Carey Mulligan in the upcoming flick, Wildlife, which marks Paul Dano’s directorial debut.
Tom Ford just made a shocking and embarrassing revelation about Jake Gyllenhaal. The director revealed a little too much information about the actor’s private parts and body hair, according to News.com.au. In an interview with Vulture, Ford was asked why he didn’t have Gyllenhaal shave his chest for the movie, in which he appeared partially nude in the film.
“It just never occurred to me that he should shave his chest!” Ford exclaimed. “I happen to like body hair. I think people should leave it alone – I’m not a fan of all this manscaping that goes on. I don’t really get it.”
Ford got more than he bargained for when he saw Gyllenhaal’s naked body. He revealed too much about Gyllenhaal’s personal grooming habits.

“If you like the chest, you should see what’s down there,” he said to Vulture with a grin on his face. “There is no manscaping. There is NO manscaping.”
Ford then finished the awkward interview by thanking the journalist and adding, “I’ll get Jake to show you his bush sometime.”
Back in September, Gyllenhaal was plagued with dating rumors involving his former girlfriend Dakota Johnson. The Fifty Shades star was previously dating Matthew Hitt, but earlier this summer, a source revealed that the couple has called it quits after two years of on-and-off dating. Johnson has been busy filming the Fifty Shades trilogy in Canada while Hitt and his band, the Drowners, have been traveling in a summer-long tour, which has been the reason behind their split.
“Dakota and Matthew have dated on-and-off for the past two years,” a source told Just Jared, as reported by E! News in June. “They didn’t get a chance to see much of each other recently because their work schedules didn’t align. She’s been up in Vancouver shooting the Fifty Shades trilogy.”
Following the news of their split, Johnson was linked to Gyllenhaal and reportedly engaged in some sort of a fling with the actor over the summer.
“Even though it was just a fling, Dakota had really strong feelings for him so when he dumped her out of the blue, she was really shocked,” an alleged source told Heat Magazine, as reported by Morning News USA. “But it was all because Jake freaked out, as he’s bit of a commitment phobe.”
After their brief affair, Gyllenhaal reportedly has regrets about not pursuing a relationship with Johnson and feel that she was the “one who got away.” No word on whether or not the former lovers have since reunited.
