Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal an Item? This Better Not Be True
Isn’t she a little young for him?
Taylor Swift’s new album, Speak Now, just came out yesterday, October 25. And today, a ridiculous story is circulating the web that claims the 20-year-old is dating 29-year-old hottie Jake Gyllenhaal. Coincidence? We think so.
According to People, the two were spotted hanging out together this past weekend all over New York. They attended the live taping of Saturday Night Live to see Swift’s BFF Emma Stone host, and the following day they were spotted brunching and strolling in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Could they just be good friends? Absolutely. Are they actually dating? We hope not.
First of all, Gyllenhaal’s ex is Reese Witherspoon, the 34-year-old movie star with two kids. How do you go from her, to someone who blabs about her exes in her songs and can’t get in to any bars?
As for Swift, she was on a more level playing field with her 18-year-old ex, Taylor Lautner. At least they had something in common to talk about, like how cool it is to be young, rich and famous. What would Taylor and Jake talk about — has she even seen Donnie Darko? She was 12 when it came out!
Obviously, the rumor that these two are dating is making us kind of sick. We just don’t see them together… at all. We love dear Taylor, but the girl has a lot of growing and learning to do. Jake, on the other hand, is almost 30, and it seems like he’s looking for someone who wants something substantial and serious.
We hate to break it to him, but that’s not little Taylor Swift! So quit “strolling around Brooklyn” acting all coupley. You’re making us nervous!
Tell us: does the thought of Taylor and Jake dating bother you, too?
