Just like with Jenny Lewis, it seems that Portman and Gyllenhall remained friends. Jake even presented her with an award in 2011, calling her a modern Audrey Hepburn.
If we met a guy that compared us to Audrey Hepburn, we’d stay with him. While talking about Natalie during the ceremony, he mentioned it was hard finding a place to eat with her, because she has a plant-based diet. Could this be the reason why the two broke up?
Kirsten After Jake
After the two broke it off, Kirsten has continued dating. She was linked to Adam Brody and Justin Long but ended up settling down in 2017 with someone else altogether.
While he isn't as known as she is, Jesse Plemons is also an American actor. The two met on the set of "Fargo" in 2016, and have since hs two beautiful sons.
Could you imagine meeting someone while shooting a war film? We can't. Not only because we don't work in the film industry, but also because we don't find war particularly romantic, but maybe that's just us.
Jake met Natalie in 2009 on the set of "Brothers", a film that was inspired by Homer's The Odyssey. The two managed to keep whatever it is that they had pretty private, and most likely their affair was a short one.
Portman After Jake
We have noticed a pattern with Jake — it seems like many of the women he would have loved to settle down with, find the love of their lives just after splitting up with him. Ouch.
It seems like this was the case for Natalie, who met Benjamin Millepied right after her romance with Jake ended. They married in 2012 and even had two children together. However, the couple have since parted ways since Millepied's extramarital relationship with another woman.
One thing that seems to follow Jake around wherever he goes, is his tendency to break off relationships only to then later get back together again. A prime example of this is Swift's most known song about him "We Are Never Ever getting Back Together." Such a case was his relationship with Reese Witherspoon.
Gyllenhaal met Reese on a movie set. She was in a difficult time in her life, trying to finalize her divorce from actor Ryan Phillippe. Jake and Reese spent a total of almost three years together, including some breaks in the middle.
