AceShowbiz - Jake Gyllenhaal knows how to handle questions about his former girlfriend very well. The actor was grilled about his famous ex Taylor Swift during a Facebook Live session with Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, whom he portrays in upcoming movie "Stronger".
The two men discussed their favorite Boston-based movies and restaurants before Jeff changed the topic and asked Jake about the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer, whom he dated for a brief three months in late 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.
Taylor is known for turning her real-life experiences into songs and it's believed that some of her songs were inspired by her relationship with the "Prisoners" star. Those songs are "All Too Well" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together".
Jake previously dodged questions about Taylor in an interview with The Guardian. "I think when you're in a relationship, you are constantly scrutinized, your friends are scrutinized, but...," he said about his relationship with the pop star, before trailing off. When the reporter asked him another question about the "Shake It Off" hitmaker, he replied, "I would love to not talk about my personal life."
Well, at least we know now that Jake keeps tabs on his ex-girlfriend Taylor, who is now dating British actor Joe Alwyn.
Jake's new movie "Stronger" about the survivor of the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing will open in theaters across the nation on September 22. Tatiana Maslany plays his ex-girlfriend Erin.
