    Jake Gyllenhaal Busy Working—Not Romancing!

    Did Jake Gyllenhaal really get Taylor Swift cuddles for her birthday?

    According to investigative glam rag known as US Weekly, Jake flew to Nashville yesterday to be by his country cutie's side as she rang in the big 2-1, and the duo were way cozy and way "obsessed" with each other at the booze-free bash.

    This certainly sounds feasible, no? But this isn't exactly how the shenanigans went down:

    Considering Jake wasn't even there.

    We're told by most knowledgeable Jake sources that Gyllenhaal was not in Nashville and not at Swift's birthday party.

    Jaylor was hanging together in L.A. at the end of last week, and even though Taylor departed, Jake stayed put.

    He was spotted getting fro-yo on Melrose Sunday and is still in town reeling in the excitement from his much deserved Golden Globe nomination.

    "He's doing the work, not the stuff that sells the work," sasses a pal close to Jake.

    Remember, Jake's buds approve of his whatevering with Taylor (and visa-versa) so this isn't a dig.

    Still, we couldn't be more thrilled about this news! No, not that Swift was left without her hunky man, but because J.G. isn't so blinded by puppy love that he's neglecting his career.

    Jake was fab in Love and Other Drugs, and he can win this thing. While Colin Firth and Jesse Eisenberg duke it out in the drama category, we think Gyllenhaal totally has what it takes to beat Johnny Depp twice over in comedy.

    But he'd by no means a shoo-in.

    It's time to schmooze and work the Hollywood crowd, boyfriend. We're happy your GF is legal to pal around with you, but keep your eyes on that Golden prize!
