Nia Long

Actually Jake (Gyllenhaal) was there

Actress Nia Long was privy to blossoming romance when she celebrated her 40th birthday at the exclusive Post Ranch Inn while movie star Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift were guests.

Reports have suggested Gyllenhaal whisked his new love off to the romantic Big Sur, California retreat for a weekend getaway on Friday (29Oct10), but neither of the alleged lovers are talking.

However, actress Long appears to have confirmed the rumours after chatting about her 40th birthday break on Thursday's (04Nov10) Access Hollywood Live, but she refused to go into all the details.

Asked how she celebrated her birthday, Long said, "I went to Big Sur, to a place called Post Ranch Inn. It was awesome... Actually Jake (Gyllenhaal) was there".

Realising she may have said too much, she clammed up and refused to answer questions about her fellow celebrity guest's possible date, stating, "That is his personal business. I am not here to spill beans... I didn't see anyone with him".
