Jake Gyllenhaal sure knows how to handle questions about his former girlfriend really well. He was asked about his famous ex Taylor Swift during a Facebook Live session with Boston Marathon bombing survivor, Jeff Bauman, whom he will be playing in the upcoming movie called ‘Stronger.’
The two of them discussed their favorite Boston-based movies and restaurants before Jeff managed to change the subject and he popped the question.
He asked Jake about the singer whom he dated for a short period of three months back in 2010.
‘If you lost your legs in real life, do you think Taylor Swift would write a song about it?’ Jeff asked.
The actor asked if the song would be for him or about him losing his legs.
Jeff said, ‘For you. Like a country song.’ Jake responded, ‘She sort of moved into pop now,’ expertly shutting down the Taylor Swift talk.
Everyone knows that Taylor usually turns her real-life experiences into songs and many people even believe that some of her songs were inspired by her relationship with Jake as well.
These songs are ‘All Too Well’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’
This was no the first time that Jake was asked about Taylor.
He has previously dodged questions about her in an interview with The Guardian.
‘I think when you’re in a relationship, you are constantly scrutinized, your friends are scrutinized, but…,’ Jake said about his relationship with the pop star, before trailing off.
When the reporter asked him another question about her, he replied, ‘I would love to not talk about my personal life.’
With this last interview, at least he found out that Jake keeps tabs on his ex’s music who is now dating Joe Alwyn and seems very happy about it. She even went to meet his parents in the UK recently.
