More than just friends?! When Charlize Theron ended her engagement in June to Sean Penn, she turned to close friend Jake Gyllenhaal for support, but have they become lovers?
In August, the two actors were spotted enjoying sushi together at the trendy restaurant, Sugarfish, in Los Angeles, California.
An eyewitness told OK! Magazine exclusively that Jake, 34, was particularly friendly. “Jake was touching her hand and smiling, making her laugh. Their chemistry was obvious,” the eyewitness said.
A source also told OK! that it wasn’t a first date for the two. "There’s always been attraction, but the timing was never right,” reveals the insider. “The romance is fresh, but they are having a blast so far.”
Jake and Sean differ greatly, according to the source. Sean “was like a power keg—you never know what might set him off.” While Jake is “gentle, thoughtful, and kind.”
Charlize, 40, is unlike any woman he’s dated. The insider said Jake admires that “she’s strong, independent, and straightforward.”
