If there were a celeb version of The Bachelor, we might suggest Jake Gyllenhaal give his final rose to Rachel McAdams. (And then Ryan Gosling would interrupt the proposal and say she belongs with him ... the fan fiction goes on and on.)
So color us intrigued to see Rachel and Jake on what E! News called a "dinner date." Was it really a date date? Nah. They are co-starring in the movie Southpaw in Pittsburgh and went out to dinner together at a place called Meat and Potatoes, but a source told E! they are just friends/co-stars.
A few days ago, a fan got a blurry photo of Rachel, 35, and Jake, 33, as they were eating, and posted it on Instagram with this note: "Why is my girlfriend Rachel McAdams eating dinner with Jake Gyllenhaal." Ha! Check it out:
They would make a cute couple, but neither one appears to be single at the moment.
Rachel is now dating Canadian music manager Patrick Sambrook and they were photographed kissing just last month. Rachel previously dated Michael Sheen — and The Gos, of course. Jake has dated Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, and Taylor Swift, and last we heard he's been off-and-on with model Alyssa Miller.
But dating is not married, so … you never know what could happen in the future.
