It seems Jake Gyllenhaal has a thing for younger ladies. After famously (and briefly) romancing a 21-year-old country darling, Taylor Swift, he might now be dating a 22-year-old TV starlet, 90210-actress Jessica Lowndes.
Jake and Jess were recently spotted grabbing breakfast together in NYC. Interestingly enough, he used a similar tactic during his short-lived relationship with Taylor: breakfast dates. Jake must like taking his ladies out for pancakes and eggs... Jake Gyllenhaal & Taylor Swift Break Up

While Jessica and Jake might be seeing each other, it hardly seems serious.

And according to PopEater, when Jake's rep was asked if he was seeing Lowndes, he responded that they were "not dating."
However, Jessica's rep was a little less dismissive with a simple "no comment."

By all accounts, Reese moved on easily enough. She seems blissfully happy, just having tied the knot this weekend to agent Jim Toth. We're not so sure Jake ever really got over the breakup. We can't help but wonder if his new dating methods have anything to do with his failed romance with Reese. After her recent nuptials, maybe he's trying to further distance himself from his ex?
