former bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky may be a red carpet pro now — but early on in her career as a reporter, things didn’t go smoothly.
In fact, Ali says that on her first day as E! News reporter, Jake Gyllenhaal accidentally made her cry.
In the last episode of The woman on top PodcastAli joked that she was “going to Jake Taylor Swift” by revealing exactly what happened.
“Jake Gyllenhaal appeared on the red carpet…my first red carpet on E! News…he walks by, and I’m trembling in my heels,” Ali explained.
She continued, “I say to him, ‘Hey Jake, who are you bringing tonight?'” Like, on a date, like, who’s your date tonight?… He went, ‘Bye,’ and walked away from me.”
Ali admits that when he left, she started crying, fearing she would lose her job because of the failed interview.
Although interacting with Jake upset her, she says he proceeded to do so with the interviewer next to her, too.
“There’s an interviewer next to me and her question was ‘So, if you don’t get an Oscar for this movie, it should be totally these tattoos,'” Ali said, “because he was completely tattooed for his movie.” “He went bye and left because he is a serious actor.”
Ali added that celebrities who are rude on red carpets really annoy her because she knows how easy it is to be nice at such events.
“I’ve walked a lot of red carpets because The Bachelorette And I’ve done countless interviews knowing how easy it is to be nice,” Ali explained.
