Welcome back to another round of Hollywood’s favourite dating game; Are They, or Aren’t They? This week the potential love connection that has set the tabloids a flutter is Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal. Alone we love them, but together? We aren’t so sure yet.
On the one hand, they’re beautiful. This means they would make beautiful babies and there isn’t much we love more than beautiful celebrity babies. On the other hand, Jake isn’t Ryan Gosling and never will be, so case closed.
Alright alright, we’ll let the Gosling comparison go since he seems to have moved on too…. for the time being.
The two stars have been seen out together a handful of times in recent weeks, including one dinner rendez-vous in Pittsburgh at a spot called “Meat and Potatoes.” This doesn’t give us much hope for an exciting, papparazzi-friendly romance because really, is there anything more boring than meat and potatoes? Well, that and the fact that Jake was wearing Adidas track pants. Of course, reps for the stars are denying these rumours, simply stating that they have been seen together because they are currently filming a movie together. Isn’t that convenient?
If these rumours turn out to be true, it could mean that we’ll see Jake hanging out in Toronto where Rachel owns a home, and we’ll never pass up an opportunity to pull up beside a Gyllenhaal at a red light on our bicycles. Just sayin’. Of course, Jake doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to relationships (right, Taylor Swift?), so having him in Toronto is kind of like bringing him home to meet her parents and I’m just not sure we’re ready for that.
Long story short, we love our Canadian girl Rachel McAdams and we’re kind of like her over-protective big sisters. We just want what’s best for her. Sure, what’s best for her is Ryan Gosling, but if that’s out of the question I guess Jake makes a pretty good runner up.
We’ll be watching closely to see where things lead with these could-be lovebirds.
