Is Jennifer Aniston âmoving onâ with Jake Gyllenhaal? A report claims a âromanceâ may be blossoming between the former co-stars. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk the story and set the record straight.
Aniston and Gyllenhaal famously starred together in the 2002 movie The Good Girl. Now roughly 16 years later, Closer maintains they may be embarking on a relationship after they âenjoyed a cozy dinner date in New York last week.â A so-called âsourceâ is quoted as saying, âJen admitted how good it felt to have some male attention after months of feeling lonelyâ following her split from Justin Theroux.
âItâs no secret Jakeâs always adored Jen and the feeling is very mutual, but thereâs never been a right time,â continues the tabloidâs supposed snitch. The alleged tipster, however, goes on to contend, âJake reached out after Jenâs split and said heâd love to meet up when she was next in New York, so Jen took him up on it.â Itâs said the pair was âspotted togetherâ at Nello, a restaurant in Manhattan.
The outlet also asserts Aniston ârekindled her friendshipâ with Brad Pitt âafter her separation,â but is âlooking forward to a new romance.â And thatâs where Gyllenhaal supposedly comes in. Claims the purported insider, âJen really likes Jake and is keen to see how things progress.â But this article is based on a false premise, one that Gossip Cop already debunked.
Womanâs Day was the first to allege that Aniston and Gyllenhaal were caught on a âsecret date,â a claim that was 100 percent wrong. Aniston was indeed spotted at Nello in NYC on April 24, but she went during the day for lunch. There was no âcozy dinnerâ with Gyllenhaal, who wasnât in attendance at all. In fact, he wasnât even in the state. A rep for the actor confirmed to Gossip Cop that on the day in question, Gyllenhaal was in Los Angeles shooting the Netflix film, Velvet Buzzsaw.
These âromance rumorsâ are based on a date and a sighting that never happened, according to photo evidence and Gyllenhaalâs own spokesperson. Thereâs other falsehoods in this new story as well. While this outlet alleges the actress is âlooking forward to a new romance,â the far more reliable People has actually reported that Aniston âisnât a fan of datingâ and is ânot looking forward to dating again.â While itâs likely sheâll date someone new eventually, she certainly isnât âmoving onâ with Gyllenhaal at this time.
Additionally, the publication claims Aniston and Pitt ârekindledâ a âfriendshipâ after she and Theroux separated earlier this year. But it was actually reported approximately 11 months prior that Aniston and Pitt were in contact, in March of 2017. Her breakup with Theroux didnât happen until February of 2018, so the magazine has its sequence of events all wrong. Of course, thereâs nothing romantic going on with the exes regardless, as Gossip Cop has reported several times, even though Closer previously claimed Aniston and Pitt might be on their way to a âfairy tale ending.â Itâs readily apparent the outletâs reporting on the âFriendsâ star is far from accurate.
