Minka Kelly had been in a long-term relationship with Derek Jeter for three years, but that didn't keep Jake Gyllenhaal from asking her out last fall, after she split from the Yankees baseball player in August 2011. Us Weekly reports that Gyllenhaal, 31, had a "secret hookup" with the "Friday Night Lights" actress, also 31, despite being turned down initially.
"Minka wasn't into Jake when he first pursued her," a source told the magazine, but added that Kelly ultimately "decided to give Jake another chance" after her winter romance with man-about-town Wilmer Valderrama faded out in late April. Alas, the telegenic brunette couple never made it out of the spring fling phase: "It was never serious, and it's over now," the source said.
Gyllenhaal's high-profile relationships in the past have included Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon and, most recently, a brief romance with Taylor Swift, who revealed that she would be penning a song about him on her upcoming album. In November 2011, it was reported that Gyllenhaal and Leonardo DiCaprio were trolling for models at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show; DiCaprio is now dating Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton.
