It is never easy to have a long and successful romance when you are at the top of the entertainment industry, with many high-profile splits, breakups and divorces taking place ever year. Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal has been romantically linked to many women over the years and he will no doubt get linked to many more in the coming years.
Most recently, Jake Gyllenhaal has been romantically linked to Ruth Wilson and Rachel McAdams but he has yet to meet the right woman to start a family with. Jake says that he has always wanted to have the chance to become a father and, after working with the young actress Oona Laurence in the new movie Southpaw, the actor says that he definitely wants to have kids.
Gyllenhaal was speaking to Entertainment Tonight, when he told them, "I am not a father yet, but it is definitely a dream of mine, should I be lucky to have that to happen. I have nieces who I love deeply and I have children in my life I love deeply, but when I meet Oona for the first time, I just fell for her. Your heart opens up to her."
He added, "When I started acting with her too, she was the one who was guiding me. We improved a lot, and she would make choices, I would just follow her in an improv, and that's the dynamic."
As well as starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Oona Laurence, the Southpaw cast also includes Rachel McAdams, 50 Cent, Forest Whitaker, Naomie Harris, and Rita Ora, among others. Southpaw is directed by Antoine Fuqua and is set to open on July 24 in both the US and the UK.
