Want to date Jake Gyllenhaal? First dates are always at his mum’s place!

Community Service Announcement: Jake Gyllenhaal is single and on the hunt… as long as you get his mum’s approval!

By Chloe Lal
The handsome 34-year-old actor sat down with Ellen on her self-titled show recently and addressed his love life.
"Well, one thing I always do is I always bring my dates to my mother's house for the first date," he laughed, before adding, "I think that's a good move."
Jake had no qualms admitting he always heeds his mother’s advice when it comes to the opposite sex.
"My mother believes, she thinks arranged marriages might be able to work. Ya know what I mean, like in a good way. She thinks that if she picked for me that I'd do a lot better."
And it looks like he’s always been fond of the mother method because Jake’s ex, Taylor Swift even wrote about it in her song "All Too Well."
The telling lyrics read: “And your mother's telling stories about you on a tee ball team, you taught me 'bout your past, thinking your future was me.”*
Like his popstar ex, Jake has also dabbled in the art of music making. "I was in a really, really bad band when I was in high school. The name of the band was called Whole Shot”, he told Ellen.
"It was rock music, I guess. We wrote our own music. I was just a lyricist, so I just wrote the lyrics."
Well Jake, we hope your mother gives the seal of approval to whoever you bring home next!
