Jake Gyllenhaal's Romances
Jake Gyllenhaal, hunky Hollywood actor who won great critical acclaim in Brokeback Mountain with Heath Ledger. Jake never caught my eye until Prince of Persia, a movie not really loved but audiences, except my mom and I. He caught my attention from this movie because of his physical transformation. Before Jake to me had some feminine qualities in the looks department, but Prince of Persia really brought out his manly qualities, his ethnic potential.
In the romance department, Jake Gyllenhaal tends to date, not to be blunt, but white women. Not to pick on him or anything, but I am writing this because I have a huge crush on him! And I'm trying to figure out why he goes for the same type of women in the looks department. Let's backtrack to his main romances during his Hollywood career.
Kirsten Dunst: around the same age, but plain Jane, Reese Witherspoon: older, great personality, pretty, great actress, but still kind of plain. Taylor Swift: way younger, she's younger than me! by a year haha, country superstar with too much baggage. What do these girls have in common? Blond hair and blue eyes.
What really though inspired this was his brief romance with Taylor Swift. Here's a girl who has dated Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, and Jack Gyllenhaal. Throughout all her whirlwind romances, comes another country love song that has fans relating to her every lyric. Though the story goes that Jake pursued Taylor with the help of mutual friend Gwyneth Paltrow, this relationships barely lasted 2 months, thank goodness. Taylor has too much baggage left in her to write a decade worth of songs, and it has to say something when men keep dumping her, and her having "no clue why." So not only has Joe Jonas dumped her on the phone, but so has Jake. And what made this cute-sy couple come to an end? Maybe Jake realized he shouldn't date someone considerably younger than him, especially one who has too much heartbreak to still deal with. I wonder if he got out just in time before we hear about another Taylor song on the radio.
Which brings me to my next point: Jake Gyllenhaal date some women of color! Like me! Haha. But seriously, maybe Jake should look into dating girls of mixed races, well at least something besides the usual Hollywood standard of blond hair and blue eyes. Look at Matthew McConaughey with Camila Alves, now that can give some hope to mixed couples and the next generation. How about some Mexican/Filippino to add some spice to your life. Holler!
