What? New Couple Alert? Fans watching the 2015 ESPYS certainly thought so, after seeing Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams attend the July 15 event together. Though they were on hand to promote ‘Southpaw,’ fans were convinced Jake and Rachel were dating and flocked to Twitter to say how they made the perfect couple!
False alarm! Jake Gyllenhaal, 34, and Rachel McAdams, 36, are not dating. Sure, they looked gorgeous when they attended the 2015 ESPY Awards as a pair, but Jake and Rachel were at the show to build a buzz over their new movie, Southpaw. Well, they certainly got people buzzing, as fans freaked out at the sight of the two hot stars together, thinking that they might be an item!
Sorry to break the hearts of all those who want to see Jachel be a real thing (Or would it be McGyllenaal?) Rachel is reportedly dating her True Detective co-star, Taylor Kitch. Meanwhile, Jake has been romantically linked to some of the biggest stars, like Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon, and Kirsten Dunst. He’s reportedly single at the moment, prompting fans to freak out and think he was involved with another of Hollywood’s most breathtaking women.
Fans were stunned by the idea of “two of the most beautiful humans in the world” being together. Some didn’t even know that Jake had split from Taylor, asking when he and T-Swizzle “break up?” and wondered if “Rachel was married to Ryan Gosling?”
Some were excited at the idea that Jake and Rachel might the next IT couple. Too bad, so sad — they’re just co-stars in the upcoming boxing flick. However, if these fans want to see more of Jachel or McGyllen or Jache McGllenadams, they better buy a ticket to go see Southpaw.

If seeing more of Jake and Rachel together wasn’t a good enough reason to see Southpaw, the reviews are in and the movie is a heavyweight contender for the gold! Jake gives a “truly great performance,” one that “hits hard enough to warrant the awards talk.” Don’t just take their word for it — see it for yourself when the film hits theaters on July 24.
Did you think that Jake and Rachel were dating, HollywoodLifers? It’s okay if you got your hopes up. It happens to everyone.
