Jake Gyllenhaal Goes Public With a New Lady in His Life

Jake Gyllenhaal held hands with a female friend during a stroll through NYC.

Jake Gyllenhaal went public with a new love interest on Friday in NYC. He and his lady friend were photographed holding hands while out for a walk in Manhattan. Their day date came during a break from Broadway for Jake. Jake's in If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, a new play written by Nick Payne, at the Laura Pels Theatre. It's Jake's first-ever foray onto the stage in the US, and he's doing eight shows a week until the show closes just before Christmas. Being in a successful show has affected Jake, and he recently spoke about the experience with The Hollywood Reporter. He said, "I can't tell you what a privilege it is to be up on stage every night, to know that 450 people filled the seats of a theater every night to come see four people work on a stage."
