Busy Phillips Wants Jake Gyllenhaal to Date Michelle Williams
Posted by Adam
BUSY Phillips is playing matchmaker.
The actress wants her close friend Michelle Williams to date hunky actor Jake Gyllenhaal, and she’s doing her best to make it happen.
Gyllenhaal broke up with Sports Illustrated model Alyssa Miller earlier this year after dating just six months.
Meanwhile, Williams has never married after having daughter Matilda, now 8, with Heath Ledger, who died of an accidental drug overdose in 2008.
“Busy’s been trying to match-make them for a good year now and got her hopes up when she saw how Jake really became a shoulder to cry on for Michelle at their friend Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s funeral,” a source told RadarOnline.
“But despite her efforts, she still hasn’t gotten them to go out on a date yet.”
Williams and Gyllenhaal have known each other for years, since starring together — along with Ledger — in the landmark 2005 drama, Brokeback Mountain.
“Busy is not really taking into account that Jake would have an issue with dating the ex of his late close friend Heath,” the source said.
Phillips is the one who set up Williams with How I Met Your Mother star Jason Segel, ”who really broke Michelle’s heart” before he turned to Alcoholics Anonymous.
