Is Jennifer Aniston ‚Äúmoving on‚ÄĚ with Jake Gyllenhaal? A report claims a ‚Äúromance‚ÄĚ 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 ‚Äúenjoyed a cozy dinner date in New York last week.‚ÄĚ A so-called ‚Äúsource‚ÄĚ is quoted as saying, ‚ÄúJen admitted how good it felt to have some male attention after months of feeling lonely‚ÄĚ following her split from Justin Theroux.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs no secret Jake‚Äôs always adored Jen and the feeling is very mutual, but there‚Äôs never been a right time,‚ÄĚ continues the tabloid‚Äôs supposed snitch. The alleged tipster, however, goes on to contend, ‚ÄúJake reached out after Jen‚Äôs split and said he‚Äôd love to meet up when she was next in New York, so Jen took him up on it.‚ÄĚ It‚Äôs said the pair was ‚Äúspotted together‚ÄĚ at Nello, a restaurant in Manhattan.
The outlet also asserts Aniston ‚Äúrekindled her friendship‚ÄĚ with Brad Pitt ‚Äúafter her separation,‚ÄĚ but is ‚Äúlooking forward to a new romance.‚ÄĚ And that‚Äôs where Gyllenhaal supposedly comes in. Claims the purported insider, ‚ÄúJen really likes Jake and is keen to see how things progress.‚ÄĚ But this article is based on a false premise, one that Gossip Cop already debunked.
Woman‚Äôs Day was the first to allege that Aniston and Gyllenhaal were caught on a ‚Äúsecret date,‚ÄĚ 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 ‚Äúcozy dinner‚ÄĚ with Gyllenhaal, who wasn‚Äôt in attendance at all. In fact, he wasn‚Äôt 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 ‚Äúromance rumors‚ÄĚ are based on a date and a sighting that never happened, according to photo evidence and Gyllenhaal‚Äôs own spokesperson. There‚Äôs other falsehoods in this new story as well. While this outlet alleges the actress is ‚Äúlooking forward to a new romance,‚ÄĚ the far more reliable People has actually reported that Aniston ‚Äúisn‚Äôt a fan of dating‚ÄĚ and is ‚Äúnot looking forward to dating again.‚ÄĚ While it‚Äôs likely she‚Äôll date someone new eventually, she certainly isn‚Äôt ‚Äúmoving on‚ÄĚ with Gyllenhaal at this time.
Additionally, the publication claims Aniston and Pitt ‚Äúrekindled‚ÄĚ a ‚Äúfriendship‚ÄĚ 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 didn‚Äôt happen until February of 2018, so the magazine has its sequence of events all wrong. Of course, there‚Äôs 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 ‚Äúfairy tale ending.‚ÄĚ It‚Äôs readily apparent the outlet‚Äôs reporting on the ‚ÄúFriends‚ÄĚ star is far from accurate.
