Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is taking his rumoured relationship with singer Taylor Swift slow, insisting he's "not rushing into anything".
The Brokeback Mountain star has been linked to the country sweetheart for the last few months and the couple was snapped together for the first time over the Thanksgiving holiday (25Nov10).
The pair has so far refused to comment on its new romance and, when Gyllenhaal was quizzed about who he would be taking as his date to the Golden Globes in January (11), he laughed off the question, hinting he was taking everything - including his love life - in his stride.
He tells USA Today, "Dude, I didn't think I was getting nominated! It's going to be a long, slow burn for me. I'm not rushing into anything!"
On Tuesday (14Dec10), Gyllenhaal landed a nomination for Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) for his performance in Love And Other Drugs.
