Ellen DeGeneres Grills Taylor Swift About Jake Gyllenhaal

The talk-show host jokingly goads the singer about her rumored romance with the "adorable" actor

Taylor Swift has no problem opening up (and singing about) her exes -- just ask Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and (quite possibly) John Mayer! But how does she bode when asked about her current rumored beau Jake Gyllenhaal

During a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show the Grammy winner was grilled by the host on her status and whether she's getting cozy with the actor.

"Are you optimistic about love?" Ellen DeGeneres asked Swift, 20. "How do you feel about love right now?" The singer attempted to dodge the question, saying, "I'm always optimistic about love." But DeGeneres asked again, "So you're always optimistic about love?"

This time Swift was a little flustered. "Yes, always...sometimes," she said. "Why wouldn't anyone be?" But the always-ready DeGeneres responded coyly: "Especially if your boyfriend is Jake Gyllenhaal, because he is very handsome... Y'all are just hanging out though, right?"

Swift, who is promoting her latest album Speak Now, did not confirm whether she's actually dating Gyllenhaal, 29, but she did admit that the two dined together in Brooklyn. Swift then asked DeGeneres and her audience, "You have a picture of us on the (TV) screen, don't you?"

Though DeGeneres enjoyed teasing the country darling, it was clear she's a major supporter of the possibly blossoming relationship. "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," she said.

Still, DeGeneres does have her doubts for Gyllenhaal (who, coincidentally appeared in the same Vampire Weekend music video as Swift's ex Joe Jonas!). Joking about Swift's habit of writing about romances gone awry, the host pointed out: "Wouldn't he be nervous if anything goes wrong?"

Do you think Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal would make for a cute couple, too? Chime in below!
