Jake Gyllenhaal Finally Reacts To Taylor Swift's 'All Too Well'

Jake Gyllenhaal has finally ended his silence about the chart topping song that stemmed from his break up with Taylor Swift.

It's been three months since Taylor Swift gave the gift that is All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version) to the world, and now the song's (rumoured) subject has finally broken cover.

For almost 10 years, Jake Gyllenhaal has been bombarded by questions about his relationship with the superstar, and while we're still no closer to finding out what happened to that scarf, the Nightcrawler actor has finally ended his silence to give his reaction to the chart-topping song that stemmed from the break up.

In a new interview with Esquire, Gyllenhaal has had his say about what All Too Well is about, and let's just say his interpretation is quite different to what most of us probably took away from it.

'It has nothing to do with me. It’s about her relationship with her fans,' Gyllenhaal claimed when asked about the firestorm surrounding his apparent role in the track.

Despite seemingly denying having played any role in the track, Gyllenhaal went on to say he had no hard feelings about the situation, saying 'it is her expression. Artists tap into personal experiences for inspiration, and I don’t begrudge anyone that.'

Interestingly, when asked whether he'd actually listened to All Too Well, Gyllenhaal gave a flat 'no,' but we'd be surprised if he wasn't well aware of the lyrics.

The actor also responded to questions about whether the backlash from the song's re-release had affected him, with the frenzy surrounding All Too Well (10 Minute Version) leading him to turn off his Instagram comments to avoid attacks from Swifties, who would probably defend their messages to him as casually cruel in the name of being honest.

Described by Esquire as the 'internet's punching bag,' Gyllenhaal said he wasn't fazed about the reaction, but appeared to criticise the failure of artists like Swift to stop their fans from piling on.

'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,' he said. '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.'

But seriously... where's that scarf?
