But I also think at some point, you just decide to grow up, you know?
The actor sat in the hot seat opposite Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, who grilled him about Hollywood and his famous ex.
Sources revealed that Reese was not in the same place as Jake, who was believed to be ready for marriage.
We all know that when Taylor Swift’s relationships end, she tends to turn her breakups into a hit song. They were often spotted together and, according to sources, when he met Taylor, Jake wanted to settle down and so did she.
Like a country song.""She sort of moved into pop now," Gyllenhaal joked, expertly shutting down the Swift talk.
The actor is no stranger to fielding questions about his famous ex-girlfriend, with even his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal being interrogated by fans of T-Swift.
Jake’s older sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, introduced the two, and things moved pretty fast. As Jake is said to be a very private person, the reason behind their breakup was not revealed, but it is said to have ended bitterly. They started dating in 2007 while Reese was recently divorced following a seven year marriage.
She and Jake initially denied speculation that they were dating until her divorce was finalized.
"It’s bound to be understood sometimes and confused other times.
I’ve found that a lot."One person that seems to get Gyllenhaal is his buddy and co-star, Ryan Reynolds.
"There's a certain harmony that comes when we're both together," Reynolds told ET in March of their friendship.
"It's a beauty that is unmatched pretty much anywhere, I would think," Gyllenhaal agreed.
Inevitably, when you're dealing with a real-life story, there's the knowledge that nothing you can do will ever match what [Jeff] went through." In addition to sharing his thoughts on being set up on dates, Jake also opened up about masculinity and the ever-changing ideas of what it means to "be a man." The 36-year-old, who attended the Women's March on Washington with older sister Maggie in January, also shared the biggest lessons he's learned from the women in his life, including his mother, playwright Naomi Foner.
