Jake Gyllenhaal is either a terrible liar or his relationship with Taylor Swift was even faker than rumors suggested, because he claims he didn't know the singer had written a song about him.

Stern's logic was that there's "nothing sexier than a woman who can play songs and write songs and all that," at which point his co-host Robin Quivers pointed out, "you have a song written about you."
