Had this happened, it would’ve rivalled Brangelina for all time best celebrity couple. And that’s not something we go throwing around all willy nilly—we understand the weight of that statement.
We’re talking about the almost-couple we’re dubbing Gylleston, comprised of two of Hollywood’s great talents and, let’s say it, faces: Jake Gyllenhaal and Jennifer Aniston.
In a video interview with People magazine, Gyllenhaal admitted he had a crush on the former Friends star for years! Weird, a young man, a product of the 80s who had a crush on Jennifer Aniston…Ok, so it’s really not that hard to believe. Name three men born in the 80s who didn’t have at least a one-year infatuation with Jennifer Aniston.
“I had had a crush on her for years, and working with her was not easy. That’s all I’m going to say. It wasn’t hard,” Gyllenhaal said in the interview, visibly flustered by the question.
He also admitted that he was attracted to more than just her beauty, and her fame from Friends, but her greater personality. Sounds like the basis of a truly beautiful relationship, just sayin’.
We’ll give you a moment to consider what this relationship would’ve looked like. The wedding photos, the honeymoon, the first born, the divorce…wait, what?
