Back in 2010, Kris Allen tried to clear up the rumor that had been spreading about his man crush on Jake Gyllenhaal. In an interview with MTV, Kris told the story that started the rumors, and it only served as a confirmation of his hidden feelings:
"I guess someone asked me: if I was going to be stranded on an island with any male celebrity, who would it be? And I thought for a while, and it was Jake Gyllenhaal. I don't know! I think he's great, like I think he's like a really good actor."
