In the sketch, the movie star had been flirting with Amy but ducking out on a meeting with the Trainwreck star, so the funny girl called in the fake hosts of MTV show Catfish to track the imposter down - only to discover it really was Gyllenhaal, and he was a big fan.

The couple chatted as Jake held and stroked his pet ferret Falcor and a devastated Amy had to explain that she was the one lying online and she no longer had a ferret, called Margo.

Selena Gomez's Shampooing Secrets


Selena Gomez

While how often you wash your hair is actually dependent on what style it is (curly haired ladies can get away with less washing), some women still choose to shampoo it on a daily basis. Not Selena though, as she's found washing it too often leaves it looking less than A-list.

"I don't wash my hair everyday, which may sound gross, but it's actually really bad for my hair,” she told America’s Allure magazine. “Some of my best friends actually can't go more than maybe two days without washing their hair, and for me, I give my mom and my dad all the credit, because I have thick hair, so it gets better the less I wash it.

“By the third day, my hair actually holds pretty well. It just holds curls better, and it holds product better. It's so strange, but it actually works. I just use a little dry shampoo, and I tease it to keep the volume up. Usually by day four is when I have to absolutely wash it."

Hailey Baldwin: 'There Is No Justin Bieber Feud With Selena Gomez'


Selena Gomez Justin Bieber

The Come and Get It star dated Justin off-and-on from 2011 to 2014, and earlier this year (16), Hailey and the Baby singer sparked rumours they were dating after she posted a picture of them kissing on social media. Last month (Apr16), the 22-year-old model opened up about her romance with Justin, revealing they are not exclusive.

Rumours have since surfaced indicating Hailey is feuding with Selena over the romance, but she insists there is no truth to the reports.

"I think it sucks that people try to start things like that," she tells Us Weekly magazine. "There's never any truth to that, first of all. She's a lovely girl. She's very kind. Her and I have a lot of mutual friends and it's all cool between everybody. We run in the same circles."

And she tells Vogue magazine one of the things she really wanted to work on was her breathing.

The Roar singer, 31, has been dating British actor Orlando since February (16), and things have moved quickly for the pair. As well as vacationing together and piling on numerous public displays of affection, it’s been rumoured they’ve even swapped house keys.

However a spanner was thrown into the works when 39-year-old Orlando was recently spotted looking cosy with Selena, 23, during a trip to a Las Vegas night club.

“They left separately, but there is definitely a flirtation there,” a source divulged to Britain’s Grazia magazine. “Despite vehement denials, it’s widely believed that they’ve hooked up in the past. Katy believes that Orlando didn’t cheat, but found it humiliating that everyone has seen her boyfriend in such a compromising position.”

After the trio sang along to Nick's 2014 hit Chains, the baby-faced singer was asked if he had ever been tied up while getting passionate.

The Teenage Dream singer, who has been dating the 39-year-old Lord of the Rings star for several months, found herself in the middle of a make-believe love triangle earlier this month (May16) after photos surfaced of the actor and Selena huddled next to each other at a club.

Katy, 31, brushed off the drama on Twitter on Thursday (12May16) by posting a link to an article Orlando had written for Time magazine about his work as a United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) ambassador. With the link, she warned her fans against paying attention to the "dumb conspiracy" adding the hashtag, "#dontfeedthebeast".

The Come & Get It star, who has been friends with Orlando for years, echoed Katy's sentiments and showed solidarity by retweeting Katy's message and adding a raised hands emoji. In a separate tweet, she referenced her song Kill Em With Kindness and wrote, "one day they'll get it lol (laugh out loud)."
