It looks like the Anti-Speidi may have arrived.Ã‚Â Rumors have been floating around for weeks that Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift are dating, and nowÃ‚Â America’s favorite theoretical couple are reportedly spending the holidays together. But wait, there’s more: the duo are allegedly making plans to spend the New Year in Paris. Did they buy the rights to their relationship from Nicholas Sparks?
“Everyone is happy for Jake,” a friend told Hollywood Life. “He finally came out of his rut. He took the breakup with Reese [Witherspoon] very hard and it’s taken him a long time to get over it. He dated in between, but no one has put a smile on his face like Taylor. He’s really on cloud nine. He’s a changed person. No one has struck his heart like Taylor.”
Apparently the two possible lovebirds were set up by Jake’s sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal. “Maggie and Taylor met at a charity event. Maggie thought Taylor was such a sweet girl with a good head on her shoulders…She seemed extremely grounded and very mature for her age. So, Maggie thought sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be a great match for her brother.Ã‚Â They are really perfect for each other. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in awe of her.”
He must be. That would explain why he shelled out $150,000 to fly his beloved to London for some quality time together. If you’re wondering what Taylor’s reaction to this looked like, it was probably something like this.
Sadly for Jake, T-Swift was nowhere in sight at a screening of his latest film, Love And Other Drugs last night in New York. So instead he had to settle for going with Anne Hathaway on his arm. Can’t win ‘em all, Jake. Oh wait, you just did. Check out the red carpet pics in the gallery below!
