It seems as though Jake Gyllenhaal has finally responded to Taylor Swift’s extended version of “All Too Well” and the accompanying short film by the same name.
In a new feature with W Magazine yesterday (January 12), as part of their 2022 Best Performances feature (he was included for his film The Guilty) Gyllenhaal, 41, posed for photos wearing a crimson red button-up shirt with a pair of red, heart-shaped glasses resting on his head. It is believed that the matching red hue Jake wore was not a coincidence. On top of that, the sunglasses are the exact same kind that Taylor, 32, wears in her “22” music video.
W‘s Instagram caption originally read: “Red (Jake’s Version)” and in the comments section, many people took note with users writing, “Jakes version! I am dying! 😂😂😂” and “The caption lmao y’all playing a dangerous game 😂” As of today, the caption on the post has since been changed to focus on Jake’s new movie The Guilty, but a screenshot of the reported original has been circulating on social media.
Hermoso el guiño de W Magazine. Subtitularon la foto de Jake Gyllenhaal como "Red (Jake's Version)", aludiendo al descargo de su ex, Taylor Swift, en una de sus viejas canciones, y la regrabación de la misma (fue viral hace poco). Los fans de ella se empecinaron contra el actor. pic.twitter.com/pXA9ydhfcL— Sergio Iván Fernández (@ivano_91) January 12, 2022
One key line from the original song references a scarf that Taylor sings about leaving at her lover’s “sister’s house,” which Jake’s sister Maggie said she’d been asked about during a 2017 appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “I never understood why everybody asked me about his scarf, what is this?” Maggie said in response to a question about whether Taylor’s infamous scarf is still at her house. “I am in the dark about the scarf. It’s totally possible. I don’t know, but I’ve been asked this before, and I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’”
