Jake Gyllenhaal: 'Not Rushing' Things With Taylor Swift

Jake Gyllenhaal was nominated for a Golden Globe for his movie 'Love and Other Drugs' on Tuesday, but it was his most recent real life love interest that was the number topic of conversation.

By now, it's clear that Gyllenhaal is dating Taylor Swift -- since being seen galavanting through Brooklyn on Thanksgiving, they've been inseparable, drinking coffee wherever they go. So, will she be by his side at the Golden Globe celebrations?

"It's going to be a long, slow burn for me. I'm not rushing into anything!" he told USA Today. In fact, he's amazed he's even going to be up for an award.

"Dude, I didn't think I was getting nominated," Gyllenhaal said. So how did he find out?

"I was asleep. I didn't wake up. It was pretty unexpected. I got a call and then I checked my phone and I had 25 e-mails, and it was either disconcerting or exciting. In this case it was exciting."
