40 Celebrity Couples You Forgot Dated In The Early ’00s
Jake Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst
Jake Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst were the quintessential Hollywood It-Couple from 2002 to 2004, when Kirsten was still uber-famous from her role as Mary Jane Watson in 2002’s Spiderman and Jake was still riding his indie cred wave from Donnie Darko. Kirsten met Jake through his sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, after Kirsten co-starred with her in Mona Lisa Smile. Jake and Kirsten moved in together real quick in a million dollar Los Angeles apartment but ultimately broke up around the two-year mark. Rumor has it that Kirsten always wanted to go out and Jake only wanted to stay in, and that dichotomy is what ended their romance.
