Jake Gyllenhaal has avoided the question for 7 years, but someone finally got the opportunity to ask about it. Jeff Bauman, who Gyllenhaal plays in the movie “Stronger,” lost his legs in the Boston Marathon bombing. In an interview between the two, Bauman finally addresses the Taylor Swift question.
Bauman asks, “if you lost your legs in real life, do you think Taylor Swift would’ve wrote a song about it?” Gyllenhaal responds by saying, “For me, or about it.”
Bauman then says, “For you – like a country song.” Gyllenhaal dodges the question by saying, “She’s sort of moved more into pop now.”
The question references Gyllenhaal and Swift’s brief relationship in 2010. Her track “All Too Well” is apparently about the actor. What do you think?
