Back of Jake Heads West as Taylor Opens Up to Ellen About Romance Jake Gyllenhaal chatted on his cell yesterday shortly after arriving at LAX. He was last on the West Coast two weeks ago, when he touched down in a similar all-blue ensemble. Jake's fresh off a stay in NYC, where he promoted Love and Other Drugs with Anne Hathaway and spent time with new lady friend Taylor Swift — Jake and Taylor were spotted out to brunch and even apple picking in upstate New York. Taylor actually led the way out to California, where she recorded an appearance for The Ellen DeGeneres Show that will air today. Ellen, inspired by the photos of Jake and Taylor together in Brooklyn, asked about her status with Jake. Taylor was hesitant to confirm anything, but she asked, "You have a picture of us on the screen, don't you?" The singer further added, "I'm always optimistic about love."

She side-stepped the question as best as she could. Same with the John Mayer question. Kyla 6 years Wow...bitter people. Seriously, no talent? That's like saying she's fat. Or short. Taylor's smart. And sweet and funny and talented. And IF they are dating, Jake's lucky. And her album's going to have the biggest first week sales in over 2 years, so obviously she doesn't need any publicity.... reba506 6 years As a long time Jake Gyllenhaal fan, I am so disappointed in him. If this is true, then he really needs to re-evaluate what he wants in a woman. Taylor Swift is a ginormous loser with zero talent. xoxoheart 6 years Yeah i agree with you Carri. I hope they are not together, but if they are its definitely not going to last long. I didn't like Reese to much, but she is way better than Taylor. Carri 6 years I think Reese was better suited for him. Taylor seems to be stuck in that high school scene where you date everyone then cry to all of your friends (fans) when it falls apart after two weeks. kimmieb124 6 years ^^Reese is hardly too old. She is a lot closer to Jake's age than Taylor is. I like Taylor's music, but she goes through men really fast and I doubt this will last.
