Jake Gyllenhaal answered a question about Taylor Swift while promoting his new movie... it's the Dredge

Every single last bit of celeb dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Jake Gyllenhaal is currently doing press interviews for his new film Stronger – but the latest one posted to his Facebook page is a little different to the standard. 

Sitting down with Jeff Bauman – the double amputee and Boston Marathon Bombing survivor who the film is based on – Jake had to answer some hilariously off the wall questions.

And one of them was on his ex Taylor Swift – a topic he never speaks about:

“If you lost your legs in real life, do you think that Taylor Swift would write a song about it?”

“For me… or about it?”

“For you. Like a country song”

“She’s sort of moved more into pop now”

Good to know he’s keeping up on the intricacies of Taylor’s career direction even after all these years.

Get these two lads their own show, just for the shady comments.

Ryan Phillippe‘s ex-girlfriend Elsie Hewitt has filed a lawsuit this week against the actor – alleging that he kicked, punched and threw her down the stairs.

In court documents revealed by People Magazine today:

the model claims after a party that Reese Witherspoon’s ex husband had left earlier after “being ignored [by Hewitt]”, she went to Phillippe’s house with a friend to pack up her things in the early hours of July 4 and a physical altercation ensued.

Hewitt supplied a “number” of photographs of bruising on her body caused by the alleged attack. The Guess model also detailed claims of drug abuse on the part of Phillippe in the court papers:

Phillippe increasingly combined these drugs with excessive alcohol consumption and often exhibited symptoms attendant of poly drug and alcohol abuse, including mood swings and bouts of anger.

Elsie had this message for her supporters following her “tribulations” last night:

we spend a lot of time on here showing our happiest moments and it's easy to assume someone's life is perfect. everyone's fighting their own battles that they understandably choose not to share. sometimes it's crazy to me that people show interest in me/my life when I've shared so much more of what I'm doing and how I look as opposed to who I really am. I'm a very private person but there are some tribulations I've been facing recently so I wanted to say thank u guys for your love, thank you to those who have been there for me, and thank you for those in my life who haven't, for teaching me a good lesson. I think it's important to feel all your feelings, both happy and sad in order to overcome and to grow stronger. everyone is on their own path and has their own pain. always get back up, keep trying and stand up for yourself and what you believe in. i'll keep working hard and working on lifting my spirits 🕊and if anything, just take this as a positive reminder to be the best and kindest you can be in a struggling world full of enough suffering and hatred. i love u

Niall Horan’s singles are creating all the buzz every time a new one is released – and no more so than in the old band. 

Louis tweeted Nialler last night to tell him that Too Much To Ask is a bit of a banger:

At least some of One Direction are on speaking terms:

Zayn probably won’t be tweeting any of the lads any time soon.
