Don't believe everything you read, folks!

While rumors have been running rampant that Jake Gyllenhaal is romancing his Southpaw co-star Rachel McAdams, the 34-year-old actor tells Ellen DeGeneres that he's single ...for now.

Gyllenhaal also joked that whoever that special someone will be has to meet his mama early on in the relationship.

"I always bring my dates to my mother's house for the first date," deadpans Gyllenhaal to DeGeneres. "I think it's a good move."

Well, he does have a history of it -- his ex Taylor Swift even wrote about it in her song "All Too Well."

♫ And your mother's telling stories about you on a tee ball team,
You taught me 'bout your past, thinking your future was me. ♫

"My mother believes she thinks arranged marriages might be able to work," Gyllenhaal jokingly says.

He adds that if his mom were to ask him to meet someone, he would.

"Absolutely, I would trust my mom." says Gyllenhaal.
