Ali Fedotowsky claims Jake Gyllenhaal made her cry in 'rude' red carpet encounter
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Ali Fedotowsky is claiming that Jake Gyllenhaal made her cry after an attempted red carpet interview. On Wednesday's episode of the 'Women On Top' podcast, Roxy Manning questioned the former Bachelorette about her worst celebrity encounter while working as an 'E! News' correspondent.
Fedotowsky joked that she was "going to Taylor Swift" Gyllenhaal by revealing exactly what went down. "Sorry, Jake Gyllenhaal, I’m going to Taylor Swift you right now," the 38-year-old replied, a reference to Swift's many songs about her relationship with the 'Zodiac' star.

"Jake Gyllenhaal shows up for the red carpet — my first red carpet for E! News — I’m like 'I’m gonna kill it. I’m gonna be so good.' I practiced. I rehearsed my questions. I was so ready to go." she recalled, as per Page Six. "He walks up, I'm shaking in my heels — which, I'm horrible in heels — and I say to him, 'Hi, Jake who'd you bring tonight?' Like, for a date, like, who's your date tonight?" she alleged. "He goes, 'bye bye,' and walked away from me."
Ali Fedotowsky immediately 'started crying'
Fedotowsky claims that she "started crying" right away, fearing for her career, only to witness the 42-year-old actor allegedly treating the reporter sitting next to her in the same manner. Gyllenhaal's attitude astonished the former reality TV star, who said that she had done "countless" interviews and is aware of "how simple it is to be kind" to reporters. She admitted that red carpet reporting was her "least favorite job [she] ever had."
She did, however, give a shout-out to the celebrities with whom she had a better interviewing experience, referring to Tom Hanks as the "nicest guy ever" and Kris Jenner "the kindest, nicest human being," who "is so smart." "All the Kardashians, Kim [Kardashian], they’re so kind," she added. "Reality stars, in general, are so nice."
Although though Fedotowsky didn't enjoy her time working as a reporter, it did help her meet Kevin Manno, the man she is now married to. The couple began dating in 2013 and have since welcomed two children: daughter Molly, 6, and son Riley, 4.
