Why Jake Gyllenhaal took his ex to the Golden Globes 

Calm down, everyone who thought Jake Gyllenhaal was a cad for taking his ex to the Golden Globes so soon after splitting with Taylor Swift. Although the “Love and Other Drugs” star showed up with former flame Jenny Lewis on his arm, it was purely platonic.

The actor and the Rilo Kiley singer turned actress “haven’t dated for years,” a source told Life&Style magazine. “They’re still friends, and they went as friends.”

The pair didn’t pose for red carpet snaps together, but sat side by side during the ceremony.

Jenny and her beau, musician Johnathan Rice, “have been together a long time,” notes the source. “They just released a record together in the summer. They haven’t broken up.”

Right now, Taylor Swift is probably in her bedroom tearing up a sheet of furiously scrawled lyrics.

‘Strong’ Connection

Is Leighton Meester romancing her “Country Strong” costar Garrett Hedlund? The “Gossip Girl” star generated some whispers at HBO’s Golden Globes after-party, where she and the “TRON: Legacy” cutie were “inseparable the entire night,” per an Us source.

While they talked, “Garrett wrapped his arm around her,” relayed the fellow reveler. “She wrap[ped] her arm completely around his neck and pull[ed] him for a quick peck on the lips.”

They were seen leaving together, with Garrett “massaging her shoulders.”

We think they’d make a cute couple!

Unfunny Girl?

Here is one of those celebrity splits that truly shocked us — because we had no idea they were actually together. January Jones of “Mad Men” and Jason Sudeikis of “Saturday Night Live” were coy about being linked to each other several months ago, but now People magazine reports they have split after an on-off relationship that began in July.

“They’ve been on and off for a few months and then the long distance kind of ended it,” a source explained. “But they could get back together. It was just hard to stay together with the distance.” Her buzzed-about drama shoots in Los Angeles, while comedy institution “SNL,” duh, is based in NYC.

But that might not be the only factor in the split. A source told Us magazine in summer, “His friends don’t understand why he’s dating her. They call her an airhead behind his back. She doesn’t get their jokes. They’ve only known him to date smart, funny women.”

Did they not notice she’s really hot?

Fall and Slip

“Boardwalk Empire” was a big winner at Sunday’s Golden Globes … and star Paz de la Huerta may have been celebrating a little too hard. The actress suffered a humiliating wardrobe malfunction while trying to get into an awards after-party, as seen in footage shot by TMZ.

Paz was reportedly turned away from the Chateau Marmont’s fete because a doorman deemed her too drunk. As she left with her male companion, who was apparently propping her up, they both took a tumble — ripping her sparkly gown and causing a little more flesh to show than she had intended. (Amusingly enough, she stopped to sign an autograph in her exposed state.)

Well, Paz, if it’s any consolation … considering the number of nude scenes you’ve done in “Boardwalk,” it’s nothing HBO viewers haven’t seen before!
