Gwyneth Paltrow has admitted that she is responsible for introducing her friend Jake Gyllenhaal to Taylor Swift.
Usmagazine.com reported last month that Gyllenhaal and Swift (Swyllenhaal) became an item after their eyes met across Paltrow’s table during a dinner party. Well blow me down, it’s bloomin’ true!
USA Today asked Paltrow about the dinner party at her and husband Chris Martin‘s London house in November, and whether she introduced the lovebirds.
“Well, I’m scared to say,” Paltrow said.
“It’s so weird. I wonder how people find out these things,” she added. “It was a while ago, so I don’t know why it would come out today.”
“I’ve just known Jake for a long time and he’s a great guy,” she said, “and [my husband] Chris has a friendship with Taylor.”
Paltrow’s matchmaking worked. A few days after the dinner party, Swift organised a last-minute trip to rip to Brooklyn to spend Thanksgiving with Gyllenhaal and his sister Maggie.
