Gwyneth Paltrow Responsible For Swyllenhaal, Y’all

|

After just a couple short months together, it’s already being reported that Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift want to move in together.  First, let’s once again note that in the real, non-Hollywood world, it’s actually slightly creepy/predatory for a thirty year old man to date a twenty-one-year-old girl, isn’t it? Not that we think Jakey is a predator; it’s just one more example of Hollywood life having different rules from real life. Second, not everyone has matchmaker Gwyneth Paltrow serving as their own personal eHarmony compatibility test—yet another example of “Stars! They’re Just (So Very Not) Like Us!”

When asked about her role in the hook-up, Gwyneth explained “I’ve just known Jake for a long time and he’s a great guy, and Chris [Martin] has a friendship with Taylor.” The pair reportedly met at a dinner party at the Paltrow-Martin residence on November 13.  “It’s so weird,” she said. “I wonder how people find out these things. It was a while ago, so I don’t know why it would come out today.” Here’s something even weirder: a country-tastic clip for Paltrow’s new movie, Country Strong wherein Gwynnie sings a song called “Shake That Thing” and yeesh…it’s rough. Check it out after the jump.
