Now who would be surprised that people are interested in just how 'Love and Other Drugs' star Jake Gyllenhaal and country-music sweetheart Taylor Swift became an item? Gwyneth Paltrow, that's whom.

Amid reports that she hosted a private dinner in London in mid-November for the young lovebirds (Gyllenhaal's 30; Swift turned 21 last week), the Oscar winner and 'Country Strong' star now seems skittish about the topic, according to USA Today.

"Where is this coming from?" said Paltrow, before acknowledging, "I've just known Jake for a long time and he's a great guy...and Chris [Martin, Paltrow's husband and lead singer of Coldplay] has a friendship with Taylor."

But did a dinner at her home actually trigger the romance? Paltrow confirms it...almost.
