Are you hardcore shipping Jake Gyllenhaal and Rooney Mara as a couple?! Those pics of them taking a walk in the Big Apple have everyone talking, and it turns out, they also include straight-up proof of the pair’s actual relationship status. Check it out here!
Are Jake Gyllenhaal, 35, and Rooney Mara, 31, dating or what?! If you zoom out and look closely at the photos of them on a stroll in New York City earlier this week, the answer is pretty clear. Let us explain…
It turns out the duo wasn’t alone at all when they went on that walk in the Big Apple — they were joined by actor Charlie McDowell, who also happens to be Rooney’s boyfriend! Yep, she may have been walking next to Jake, but she’s been dating Charlie since 2010. That’s six long years! SEE THE PIC OF CHARLIE, JAKE & ROONEY HERE.
So if Jake and Rooney actually did seem flirty on this stroll, like some claimed, it was all right in front of her man, who seems to be quite okay with it. We’re not quite sure how these two became such good friends that they’re hanging out so casually like this, but we’re kind of all about it!
Jake and Rooney have never starred in any films together, but her sister, Kate Mara, was in his 2005 flick Brokeback Mountain. Maybe that’s the connection? Either way, they definitely seem to be enjoying each other’s company (as friends)!
And while the 31-year-old is totally loved up in a serious relationship, it seems Jake is still single. Of course, he’s been linked to A-listers like Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift in the past, so we’re not too worried about him finding someone!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Rooney and Jake would be a cute couple? Are you disappointed it’s not the real deal?
