Jake Gyllenhaal appears to fire back at Taylor Swift’s ‘All Too Well’

Jake Gyllenhaal has Taylor Swift fans spinning after a photoshoot appeared to reference the messy split at the heart of his ex’s album Red.

The 41-year-old actor featured in W Magazine Thursday to talk about his recent film The guilty. The main image sees Gyllenhaal in a red shirt with notable heart-shaped sunglasses resting on his head – an apparent nod to Swift’s Red the album era, and the similar pair she wore in the music video for ’22’.

Swift famously grilled her former boyfriend – who is nine years her senior – in November Red (Taylor’s version). She released a ten-minute version of fan-favorite track “All Too Well”, including a long clip where actor Dylan O’Brien and Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink replicated Swift’s take on her brief relationship with Gyllenhaal.

The pair dated for three months when Swift was 20 and Gyllenhaal was 29 in 2010. But the short-lived emotional rollercoaster of a romance produced enough material for Swift to release her iconic breakup album two years later. .

Gyllenhaal has remained tight-lipped about the 2021 re-release so far. A source said AND! News at the time that he had “no interest in any of it” because he “doesn’t read the gossip and pay no attention to it”.

“He lives his life and focuses on himself. It ignores all the noise,” the report said. So it came as a surprise that her portrayal this week was so standout at Swift, considering she’s known for her subtle Easter Eggs in all of her work.

While this may all be pure coincidence, the original caption promoting the post on Instagram was “Red (Jake’s Version)” but has since been changed, according to In the style.

“Does he feel 22?” a fan wrote online. “Stylist got the job done,” reads another comment.
