FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
JAKE & TAYLOR
WHY IT’S WORKING
When Scoop asked Jake Gyllenhaal point-blank about his relationship with Taylor Swift at his Love & Other Drugs press conference in N.Y.C. Nov. 6, he looked uncomfortable-and remained silent. While the match may be unexpected, “Jake is super sweet to Taylor, and she’s beyond giddy about seeing Jake,” a Swift source tells Scoop. “They really seem to enjoy each other’s company.” And for those who may be raising eyebrows at their nine-year age gap (she turns 21 on Dec. 13; he turns 30 on Dec. 19)? “Taylor is more mature than she comes across in the media,” says a source close to the country singer. “Jake has always admired her music,” according to a source who’s seen them together in recent weeks. Swift seems content. Says the source close to her: “She wants to take it slow. She is very excited about Jake.”
WHAT SHOULD THEIR COUPLE NAME BE?
TAKING THE PULSE OF CELEBRITY LOVE LIVES
After four years of dating, the Sing-Off host, 37, popped the question to his actress bride-to-be, 30, near a California beach Nov. 4 with an Asscher-cut diamond ring from Bader & Garrin. “Their relationship has never been better,” a source tells Scoop.
BRAD PENNY & KARINA SMIRNOFF
The pro dancer and her pitcher beau, both 32, have been engaged for a month. She debuted a 4.5-carat sparkler at the Tao Las Vegas five-year bash.
Gomez, 18, and Bieber, 16, sampled cake-batter yogurt at Menchie’s in Encino, Calif., Nov. 2 and held hands as they left. “She’s a sweetheart,” he told Ellen DeGeneres the next day.
HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN & RACHEL BILSON
After ending their engagement in August, “they’re dating again,” a Bilson pal confirms.
[Heart] 11/5, Los Angeles: Christina Aguilera and Matthew D. Rutler, a set assistant from her movie Burlesque, double-dated at Soho House with pals Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. “After she and Jordan [Bratman] separated, her friendship with [Matt] turned romantic,” a pal tells Scoop. [Heart] 11/7, Santa Monica: Marcia Cross and husband Tom Mahoney got crafty with twins Eden and Savannah, 3, at the P.S. Arts Express Yourself charity event. [Heart] 11/4, Beverly Hills: Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham cozied up at the Bottega Veneta and Vanity Fair party for the Motion Picture & Television Fund.
DAVID WANTS HER BACK!
Four weeks after announcing their separation, Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette seem to be at a standstill. A source close to the pair says that the actress, 46, has all but “checked out” of the relationship (although she’s still sporting her ring), while David, 39, isn’t faring as well. “He’s putting on a brave front but … he’s heartbroken.” Another pal adds that the actor remains “desperately in love. He wants to get back together and reunite his family.”
IN THE FAMILY BUSINESS?
Speaking to a group of students at the recent Savannah Film Festival, Liam Neeson, 58, revealed that his oldest son, Micheal, told his “granny” Vanessa Redgrave, 73, that he wants to follow in his family’s thespian footsteps. “He looks just like his great-grandfather Michael Redgrave,” noted Neeson. It took time for Micheal, 15, to fess up to his father, who admits mixed feelings: “Part of me hopes he becomes a doctor or a lawyer …”
RYAN’S BIG HEART
The busiest man in showbiz, Ryan Seacrest, 35, headed to his hometown Nov. 5 to launch the Ryan Seacrest Foundation and unveil the Voice, a broadcast media center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. “It’s very exciting,” he tells Scoop. Between his hosting and producing gigs, the American Idol host says he’s “learned to make time to have a personal life” with girlfriend Julianne Hough, 22. “I’m enjoying it a lot.”
