Ellen Degeneres asked Taylor Swift if she is feeling optimistic about love, and Taylor then replied: ‘Well, why wouldn’t anyone be?’ Ellen added: ‘Especially if your boyfriend is Jake Gyllenhaal, because he is very handsome. Y’all are just hanging out though right?’
Taylor refused to deny a romance with Gyllenhaal: ‘You have a picture of us on the screen, don’t you?’ They then discussed how Taylor uses ex-boyfriends as inspiration when writing songs. ‘Dear John’ is rumored to be about John Mayer. ‘Speak Now’ is on track to recording the biggest first-week sales of 2010.
