Jake Gyllenhaal on 'Love and Other Drugs'

"Extra's" Lauren Sanchez got right to asking Jake Gyllenhaal about his relationship with Taylor Swift at Thursday's 2010 AFI Fest presented by Audi's opening night premiere of his new film, "Love and Other Drugs."

Jake played coy when Lauren asked about his brewing romance with the country sweetheart, who will be 21 December 13. He'll be 30 December 19. Both Sagittarians!

Gyllenhaal was somewhat elusive, saying only, "I think there are a lot of difficult things going on in the world today, and I don't think my personal life in particular is that hard."

While he shied away from answering questions about Taylor, Jake assured Lauren he's doing just fine with the ladies.

"How do you physically prepare for a love scene?" asked Lauren, referring to his intensely romantic scenes with co-star Anne Hathaway. "Just a lot of practice," he joked. "When you're devoted to a role, you have to give it all you can give."

"Love and Other Drugs" pops into theatres November 24.
