Taylor Swift: “All Too Well” Is About Jake Gyllenhaal
Taylor Swift has had almost as many high-profile relationships as she has had hit songs, and as a result, she has written a lot about particular men in Hollywood. And her latest album is no exception.
Us Weekly reports that Taylor’s song “All Too Well” off of her album, Red, is about the time she spent with ex Jake Gyllenhaal. Taylor spent Thanksgiving with Jake’s family in 2010 only to be dumped over the phone at Christmas of the same year.
This particular break-up gave Taylor a lot of ammunition. Taylor told Good Morning America: “‘All Too Well’ was the hardest to write because it took me a long time to filter through everything I wanted to say. It started out being a 10-minute song, which you can't put on an album. I had to filter it down to a story that could work in the form of a song.”
So if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to date an older, very attractive movie star (who hasn’t?), take a listen to Taylor’s track. And while you do that, she'll keep "hanging out" with One Direction's Harry Styles. Jake was so 2010.
