The romance between one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men and the music industry’s little darling is heating up. And we’ve got the goods on their holiday plans…in Paris!
Jake Gyllenhaal has finally moved on from his devastating break up with Reese Witherspoon, and two insiders tell us he’s completely head over heels for his new love, country superstar Taylor Swift!
“Everyone is happy for Jake. He finally came out of his rut. He took the breakup with Reese very hard and it’s taken him a long time to get over it,” a source tells us exclusively. “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.”
Our insider also tells us that Taylor’s favorite time of year will be better than ever thanks to her new beau. “The two are already planning to spend the holidays together. And Jake plans to meet Taylor in Paris at the beginning of the new year, where she’ll be performing.” A rendezvous in Paris? Ooh la la!
Another source tells us Jake has his sister to thank for his newfound happiness. Apparently, she’s the one who played matchmaker! It only took one meeting between Maggie Gyllenhaal and 20-year-old Taylor for an idea to form in her head.
“Maggie introduced Jake to Taylor. 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 very down to earth and not at all spoiled or seemed like fame had gone to her head,” a source tells Hollywoodlife.com. “She seemed extremely grounded and very mature for her age. So, Maggie thought she’d be a great match for her brother.”
Looks like sis was right on with her instincts, because our source says that 29-year-old Jake is “so happy” with Ms. Swift. “They are really perfect for each other. He’s in awe of her.”
This isn’t the first time Maggie set up her brother, either. She introduced him to Kirstin Dunst, who Jake dated for 2 years before he dated Reese. And while it took Jake awhile to get over his last love, our source tells us he is finally moving on…and he’s moving on with Taylor.
And the “Mine” singer can stop worrying about penning another song like “Dear John” should things with Jake go south.
