Couple alert: Jake Gyllenhaal is reportedly getting hot and heavy with costar Rachel McAdams


Couple alert: Jake Gyllenhaal is reportedly getting hot and heavy with Southpaw costar Rachel McAdams. The two comely actors are currently filming in Pittsburgh and giving local stargazers plenty to write home about — um, we mean post to social media. An Instagram user captured the pair looking mighty cozy at a local restaurant. Gyllenhaal, whose last serious girlfriend was model Alyssa Miller, and McAdams, who was most recently with Michael Sheen (now romancing comedian Sarah Silverman), have known each other for years, but their behavior of late doesn’t seem platonic.

In harmony

Also interesting dinner companions: Chris Martin and Rihanna. When: Sunday night. Where: Giorgio Baldi Italian restaurant in Santa Monica, California. According to X17online, the two arrived separately and sat a corner table, face to face. A picture of Ri-Ri laughing is posted to UsWeekly’s website. These two have history, having collaborated in 2012 on the song Princess of China, off Coldplay's album Mylo Xyloto.

Bedtime story

It’s not exactly a tell-all, but it’s juicy all the same. The main character in James Franco’s latest short story is a decidedly nonfictional person: “a Hollywood girl” named Lindsay Lohan. Bungalow 89, published on Vice magazine’s website, is about a visit a “lonely” Lohan paid Franco when he was at the Chateau Marmont hotel (unclear of the timing). He reads J.D. Salinger aloud while she lays her head on his shoulder, then allows her to ramble. But no. Franco did not have sexual relations with that woman, though the actress once claimed that they did.

Life changes

The father of Lil’ Kim’s baby daughter, Royal Reign, is not a new person in her life. He’s her on-again boyfriend, New York rapper Mr. Papers. He’s collaborated with Kim on music as well. After the birth, @Daddy has been active on Twitter, retweeting congratulatory posts.

Athletic genes alert: Volleyball pro Misty May-Treanor tweeted that she had a baby girl with baseball player husband Matt Treanor.

Eric Trump and his fiancée, personal trainer Lara Yunaska will wed in Palm Beach at (where else?) Mar-a-Lago, Page Six reveals. The 30-year-old son of Donald Trump has set the date for Nov. 8.

Jason Schwartzman is a dad again. The actor welcomed his second daughter with wife, fashion designer Brady Cunningham.

    Sean Connery had dinner Monday night with a group of friends at Caffe Abbracci. Connery greeted and shook hands with fans as he entered the room and was overheard chatting with restaurant owner Nino Pernetti about the World Cup, saying he regrets that his native country Scotland did not qualify and that England was eliminated in the first round. He did concede that Germany was the rightful winner. Connery also told Pernetti that what he enjoys most in life after making movies is ... soccer. The ex 007 left the restaurant, saying “Cheerio,” to the owner and his starstruck guests.
