Keira Knightley and Jake Gyllenhaal have been seen on a string of dates in L.A. which has been sparking rumors that they are a couple, according to a published report.
According to the 'New York Post,' the hunky actor broke off from his long-term girlfriend Kirsten Dunst just last year, and Keira has been enjoying the single life ever since her split with boytoy model Jamie Dornan.
The sexy stars, who were both nominated for Oscars this year, were spotted getting 'comfortable' with each other in the days prior to Sunday night's (3-5-06) Academy Awards ceremony.
"Jake Gyllenhaal's publicist needs an Oscar for what he is trying to pull off. Last month, Jake was photographed at a Lakers game basically sitting in Austin Nichols' lap, but we always manage to hear "stories" that he is punching one piece of high quality Hollywood kitty after the other. Normally, a big Hollywood star like Jake would be stalked by paparazzi, yet we have never seen a picture of him with any of these women. Either he's The Phantom or he's gay. And since The Phantom liked women, that kinda rules him out" - IDLYITW
A source says, "They were at Soho House two nights in a row together and definitely looked like a couple."
On another note, Keira has also been seen smooching her 'Pride and Prejudice' co-star, Rupert Friend.
The duo was spotted last week getting cuddly in the ocean in the Bahamas.
