Want to Date Jake Gyllenhaal? Gotta Go Through Mom.
Jake Gyllenhaal is a good Jewish boy.
“I always bring my dates to my mother’s house for the first date,” your former fantasy boyfriend told Ellen DeGeneres on Monday. “I think that’s a good move.”
“My mother thinks arranged marriages actually might be able to work … in a good way. She thinks that if she picked for me that I’d do a lot better.”
Taylor Swift, whom Gyllenhaal dated in 2010, alluded to the actor’s mama’s boy complex in her song, “All Too Well”: “You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin sized bed. And your mother’s telling stories about you on a tee ball team…”
I guess she didn’t pass the Jewish mom test. Don’t feel bad T — it’s a tough one.
