Awkward run-ins with your ex—yet another reason for celebrities to date someone outside the entertainment industry. Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal learned that lesson Sunday at the Vanity Fair Oscar's after-party. And according to People.com, the former couple looked like they were having more than just a friendly chat.
"They were outside near the restroom having a discussion," a guest at the Vanity Fair bash tells People. "It seemed a bit more serious—it certainly wasn't a 'Hi, how are you?' talk." Jake Gyllenhaal & Taylor Swift Break Up

But whether Taylor was hoping to reconcile or not, by the end of the night the two were keeping their distance. While Jake's night out was short lived, Taylor stayed to party with Selena Gomez and Emma Stone.
