Taylor Swift is “optimistic about love” at the moment. The 20-year-old country singer – who is reportedly dating movie star Jake Gyllenhaal – has refused to confirm a romance with the actor but admits she is very happy with her love life right now.
Asked by Ellen DeGeneres how she feels about love, Taylor answered: “I’m always optimistic about love. Well, why wouldn’t anyone be?”
To which Ellen said: “Especially if your boyfriend is Jake Gyllenhaal, because he is very handsome. Y’all are just hanging out though, right?”
Despite the ‘Love Story’ singer’s refusal to acknowledge the relationship, chat show host Ellen gave her approval to the new couple.
She said: “I’m just saying he’s adorable and I like him very much, and so if that is the case that he’s your boyfriend, I think that’s fantastic.”
Referring to Taylor’s recent revelation that she uses her romantic experiences as inspiration for her songs, Ellen asked: “Wouldn’t he be nervous if anything goes wrong?”
Taylor and Jake, 29, were spotted holding hands and appeared smitten with each other whilst on a romantic walk around Brooklyn, New York.
The pair also attended a taping of comedy sketch show ‘Saturday Night Live’.
Taylor has previously dated Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner and was linked to 33-year-old singer John Mayer last year.
Jake has been single since his relationship with actress Reese Witherspoon ended 10 months ago.
