"Jake reached out to her and started all of this, but now he’s not acting as interested," a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands Wednesday).

The previously inseparable pair called it quits just before New Year's Eve, then rang in 2011 separately.

"He said he wasn't feeling it anymore and was uncomfortable with all the attention they got," says the insider of the just over two-month romance. "He also said he could feel the age difference. Taylor is really upset. We told her not to move so fast with this but she didn't listen."

Explains a Gyllenhaal insider, “Jake cares about her, but [the publicity] was a lot for him. He wants to keep his private life private, and that’s hard to do dating Taylor.”
