Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift are becoming Hollywood’s most-watched new it-couple and fans have been wondering how the stars made their initial love connection.

The couple- whose 5-week romance has taken them across the world from Big Sur, Nashville, New York, and London- met through their respective teams.

In October, the actor asked his handlers to introduce him to Swift, according to the new issue of UsWeekly.

After a nearly three-year romance with Reese Witherspoon which ended about a year ago, Gyllenhaal was attracted to the low-key, no-fuss dating situation 20-year old Swift offered. “Jake likes that Taylor is sweet, low-key and very easy to be around,” a source told the magazine. “Besides, he likes blondes, he thinks she’s pretty and he has a thing for Southern girls.”

Also, he is reveling in the attention: “Taylor dotes on Jake. She’s love-struck and he loves the attention.”
