Even though Lady Gaga and Jake Gyllenhaal have never worked together fans were quick to note that their chemistry while interviewing for Variety was palpable. Within hours Twitter was flooded with comments and speculation about the pair. “megan fox and MGK walked so jake gyllenhaal and lady gaga could run,” wrote one fan. “THE CHEMISTRYYYY AAAAHH I’M HYPERVENTILATING!! OMG,” tweeted another over a video of Gaga and Gylenhall posing for the interview photoshoot. Fans couldn’t stop the speculation that there might be something romantic going on between Gaga and Gyllenhaal. “uh is jake gyllenhaal dating lady gaga…?,” on speculative fan tweeted.
To be clear, as far as anyone knows, Lady Gaga and Jake Gyllenhaal are not dating. However, at one point in the interview, Gyllenhaal noted that he’d “never held anyone” the way he held Gaga for the photoshoot, and Gaga referred to Gyllenhaal as “daddy” — but never the less, they’re just friends. As of November, Gaga has been dating Michael Polansky for over two years, whom she has referred to as “her world” in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. As for Gyllenhaal, he’s in a very private relationship with Jeanne Cadieu, per Us Weekly. After all the Taylor Swift drama he weathered this fall, we’re assuming he’s trying to keep his love life as quiet as possible.
