Orlando Bloom gladly stoked rumors of a romance with costar Kirsten Dunst during the Sept. 10 Elizabethtown premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

The British actor pulled a Tom Cruise by crashing one of Dunst's interviews to rave about how "wonderful" she is, while hugging her tightly.

Later, when asked what he'd like for Christmas, Bloom answered, "Kirsten by my side – she's all I need to have."

But what of Dunst's longtime on-off boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal? He was also in Toronto Sept. 10, for his drama Brokeback Mountain, but he and Dunst were no-shows at each other’s screenings.

While a source says, "I'm not sure they're still on," a pal of Jake's notes, "He's obsessed with Kirsten. He risks other relationships because all he wants to do is spend time with her."

On Sept. 11, Dunst and Gyllenhaal did arrive together at a private gala in Toronto for Bee Season – featuring a tiny role for Bloom's sometime sweetie, an absent Kate Bosworth.

As for her relationship with Gyllenhaal, "Kirsten and Jake continue to be friends," says Dunst's rep. "It's not likely that you’ll see either one on the red carpet with each other – it just fuels tabloid speculation."
