Taylor Swift & Jake Gyllenhaal: It's Just Another Hollywood Showmance!

Thu, December 2, 2010 10:17am EDT by 32 Comments

Super-public dates and seemingly staged photos have us doubting these two big time!

There’s been a lot of talk about Taylor Swift, 20, and Jake Gyllenhaal, 29, lately. We know they went on three coffee dates in one week, we know they had a “romantic” rendezvous in London, and we know they spent Thanksgiving together with both of their families. But here’s the all-important question: Do you actually believe they’re dating? We don’t! We’ve analyzed the latest photos of the couple, published in the latest issue of Us Weekly, and we couldn’t help but notice these two performers really do look like they’re putting on a show.

While most A-list couples — the eternal union of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart comes to mind — do whatever they can to avoid the paparazzi, Jake and Taylor appear to be hamming it up for the cameras. Those huge smiles. Those exaggerated hugs. They’re like the new Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag! Seriously now, how many paparazzi are lurking around Park Slope in Brooklyn… on Thanksgiving?!

Here are a couple of theories we’ve got cooking as to why Taylor and Jake are faking it for the cameras:

  1. Jake’s got a movie to promote! Jake’s current movie, Love and Other Drugs, may feature nakedness aplenty between him and Anne Hathaway, but it isn’t doing quite as well at the box office s he probably hoped. The drama only grossed $14.5 million in its first five days, according to Deadline.com. And is there really any better way to drum up much-needed buzz than a highly publicized romance?
  2. Taylor’s fishing for material! Taylor’s latest album, Speak Now, didn’t sell more than 1 million copies in its first week for no reason. Her fans wanted answers! Now that Taylor is openly writing songs about her exes, she’s got a whole new legion of followers — and if she wants to keep this momentum going, she needs to be in the public eye with a controversial man on her arm. Enter Jake… whose name rhymes with fake. Just saying.

We sent the latest photos of Jake and Taylor to body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass, who says the pair’s positioning speaks volumes about their possible showmance:

“She has her hand clenched, which means there’s kind of a discomfort level,” Dr. Glass points out. “This relationship is awkward very awkward, there are more like friends if anything. There’s no romance between them.”

Interesting… very interesting.

Okay, so I do not think this is fake for a number of reasons:
1. Taylor has like zero makeup on, and if it was fake, she definitely would be “made up” more.
2. If you look at the pictures, Taylor is wearing Jake’s scarf.
3.Lastly, if this was a showmance why wouldn’t they have been seen in Big Sur, London or at SNL?

I’ve seen all the pictures, they look staged and kind of forced. The photographer was very close. I think they let US Magazine take pictures of them and have their people give an “exclusive” behind the scenes interview about their new love.

This photo may not be the best but they’ve been photographed together in far less flattering things, i.e., at the coffee bar, that would hardly “promote” either of them. I’m sticking with “I don’t know” on this one.

personally, i thnk they are together, but they’re not in love with one another like ROBSTEN so people are saying they’re fake. they’re still at the stage where they don’t really feel comftorable in public plus they just started going out five weeks ago or so… of course i could be wrong. (if that were the case sorry)

Jake is known in the trade as “Toothy Tile”. He is gay, gay, beyond gay. That’s why his relationships with Kirsten Dunst and Reese Witherspoon ended. They were no longer willing to play the game. Why he chooses to not come out is beyond me, but it is well known in Hollywood that he has a very strong gay life that he tries his best to keep hidden.

That is a stupid remark that is stupid beyond stupid! Jake Gyllenhaal is NOT gay. The only reason he and Witherspoon broke up, and it is public knowledge is that SHE was not ready to get married and HE WAS!!

i don’t know what the deal is with this picture nor them, nor do i care that much- but they both look like they’re doing ads for something- him patagonia, and her, whatever brand of coffee she’s got with it twisted to show the label… i thought they’d make a good pair, but they look very lacking in chemistry… whatevs…

It’s debatable whether or not this is a legitimate relationship, however, the photos do look staged at least. Maybe they are making $$ from giving this magazine the exclusive (just like Pitt-Jolie did with baby photos). Who knows. A new pic of Taylor (alone) shows her wearing a pink silly band – either from Ramona (Jake’s niece) or it’s the same silly band he was wearing for a few weeks. Whatever the case, this relationship just seems strange. It began the same weekend her CD was released. They seem to come from two different worlds.

For your information, Julie, Jolie and Pitt did NOT make money from their baby photos! They gave it ALL to charity which is why they allowed the photos in the first place. That is FACT and common knowledge for those who take the time to find things out instead of wrongly assuming something else!

This story does keep adding things and changing existing things. Why hide their relationship up to now?

Love them!!

Personally I think this website is stupid. You go from one extreme to the other. One minute you are for the couple, the next day, you say they are fake. These two probably saw photographers and probably got uncomfortable. They are not hiding their relationship anymore which I think is great. They should be able to do what they want and not hide their emotions. Jake loves his family too much to involve them in a publicity stunt. The picture of Taylor, Maggie, and Ramona is adorable. The fact that she stayed with his family on Thanksgiving and him coming to Nashville and staying almost an entire week pretty much sums up that they are a true bonafied couple.

Adorbs!

I personally think they are the real deal. They are trying their best to keep their relationship hidden. I highly doubt Jake would involve his niece and sister in publicity photos. He is too much of a family man to do that. Also if it was a holiday I think I would be with the people I love and not thinking of work. Taylor doesn’t need a big actor to sell albums. She has also been stated that if she was to be involved in another realtionship that she would to have fallen head over heals for the guy. They truly look legit to me.

showmance

Posted at 11:25 AM on December 2, 2010  

Taylor doesn’t need a big actor to sell her albums? Have you ever LISTENED to a Taylor Swift album? They are all about the big stars (including actors) that she is dating. Her money is due to her dating male celebrities. This showmance came at just the exact week leading up to the release of her newest album you think that’s a coincidence?

When she goes on talkshows it’s all about who she is dating. Taylor is all about business. Thankgiving is for family but Taylor left her family to go take PR pictures with Jake in NY because business comes first. How many normal women would leave their family during Thanksgiving to go and meet up with some guy they just started dating a few weeks ago?

She has a song saying John Mayer was too old for her to be dating, now she is dating Jake who is only 3 years younger. So either she lied on the Mayer song or she needs more songs about an older guy.

Come on!

If you think this (or any other) posed photograph of them is real then you are not only kidding yourself, but you can also reach up and remove the hook from your lip because their publicists have caught you.
This whole photoshoot couldn’t look more staged if they tried. Getting family members involved in photo ops is common practice to make the pictures look more valid. Maggie would go out of her way for her brother, so it is not unfeasible that she would do this for him.

The longer this goes on for the less convincing it is becoming. No one with an ounce of intelligence buys this “romance”. They may well be dating but let’s not kid ourselves, this is more about publicity than anything else and there is no way in hell they are being discreet about any of it.

P.S. plus the articles of the magazine have direct quotes from people close to both Swifty and Jake giving ALL the details of what went done with both families during their Thanksgiving romance. Again exclusively to US mag like other showmances have done in the past.

If you look at the pictures in the magazine, they ALL look staged. Especially the Jake and Swifty pics. But even the picture with Taylor, Jake’s sister Maggie and his niece Amanda looked like a commercial. If feels like the “Exclusive” outing of Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin that US magazine did earlier this year. But I bet Taylor will still write a song about this romance.

You can tell that pic with Taylor, Maggie and Ramona is a fake setup. The little girl looks straight at the cameraman while Maggie and Taylor look the other direction pretending they don’t see the camera. You can’t use little kids in your schemes, they aren’t good at playing along. Maggie will do anything for her brother. Shame on Jake for using his family this way.
