Adam Levine: Jake Gyllenhaal Is Not Gay!

Maroon 5's frontman shoots down rumors that his actor buddy is interested in men

Jake Gyllenhaal may not have found his perfect woman just yet -- but that doesn't mean that he's not looking for her.

The actor's good buddy, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, recently opened up to Out magazine about his bromance with The Prince of Persia star and the rumors that (despite his past serious relationships with Reese Witherspoon and Kirsten Dunst) Gyllenhaal might be gay.

"Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay? Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy -- it has to be because of Brokeback [Mountain], right?" Levine says, referring to Gyllenhaal's role as a gay cowboy in the 2005 flick.

The singer says that the talk surrounding Gyllenhaal's sexual orientation is absurd.

"I’ve known this dude forever," he says. "He’s one of my oldest friends, and it’s very weird that they have this -- it’s very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation," he says. "If him hanging out with his bros means he’s gay, it’s like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid. So, yeah, he’s my buddy. I f*ckin’ love the guy."

Levine says that he's turned off by public speculation in general and does his best not to be affected by all the tabloid hoopla.

"The only thing I ever want attention for is music. Nothing about my personal life, friends, or family, who I’m dating and all that sh*t -- that’s an unfortunate byproduct of what we do," he laments. "But it’s very important to a lot of people. I wish it weren’t because things are a lot more important than that, guys, so start focusing on that a little bit."
