Taylor Swift has fueled speculation she might be dating Jake Gyllenhaal after talk show host Ellen DeGeneres grilled the young star about her "handsome" new "boyfriend".
The country singer sparked rumors of a new romance when she was spotted holding hands with Gyllenhaal during a stroll through Brooklyn, New York on last Sunday. Swift recorded an appearance on DeGeneres' talk show yesterday and Ellen took the opportunity to ask the 20 year old about her relationship with the actor.
DeGeneres asked Swift if she is feeling optimistic about love, and she replied, "Well, why wouldn't anyone be?" and the host countered, "Especially if your boyfriend is Jake Gyllenhaal, because he is very handsome. Y'all are just hanging out though right?"
Swift refused to deny a romance with Gyllenhaal, simply asking, "You have a picture of us on the screen, don't you?"
Ellen devoted a full show to Swift to celebrate the release of Speak Now. The episode will air on November 1.
