Jake Gyllenhaal Responds to Taylor Swift’s ‘All Too Well’ For the First Time

Does Jake Gyllenhaal remember his love affair with Taylor Swift “All Too Well?”

Three months after Taylor Swift released the 10-minute version of her hit song “All Too Well,” the actor answered questions about the song that allegedly details their romance. 

 “It has nothing to do with me. It’s about her relationship with her fans,” he told Esquire in a new interview, published Feb. 17. “It is her expression. Artists tap into personal experiences for inspiration, and I don’t begrudge anyone that.”

Gyllenhaal, however, did turn off his Instagram comments in late 2021 amid the re-release of the song and shared his thoughts on “cyberbullying.”

“At some point, I think it’s important when supporters get unruly that we feel a responsibility to have them be civil and not allow for cyberbullying in one’s name,” Jake noted. “That begs for a deeper philosophical question. Not about any individual, per se, but a conversation that allows us to examine how we can—or should, even—take responsibility for what we put into the world, our contributions into the world.”


When asked specifically if he’s listened to Red (Taylor’s Version), he replied, “No.”
