Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift briefly dated between 2010 and 2011.
Almost a decade has passed since Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal began their brief relationship. But while the former couple has likely moved on already from their past flame, the “Exile” singer’s fans seemingly remember it “all too well,” according to Page Six.
On Monday, the Velvet Buzzsaw star received a massive trolling from his ex’s fans. Based on his post on Instagram, it appears that the “trolling” still stands.
Why Swifties continue to spam Jake Gyllenhaal
It all started when Jake Gyllenhaal posted a throwback photo on the social media platform. The image features him and his eyeglasses during his childhood years.
Reports said that the actor’s post is a way to highlight the initiatives of the New Eyes for the Needy organization. The celebrity also credited the organization’s recent partnership with The Inspire Project. He continued to discuss some of its upcoming projects and missions, adding how they have remained helpful to those who are in need.
Gyllenhaal also revealed that he had worn his pair of glasses ever since he “parted” his hair meticulously as what the picture shows. While his post aims to do good before the public, Taylor Swift’s fans saw an opportunity to troll the actor.

I’ve worn my glasses ever since I parted my hair meticulously with gel (see above), which is why NEW EYES has always been near and dear to my heart. Since 1932, @neweyes_ has provided eyeglasses to people who needed them most. I’m thrilled that they’ve partnered with @theinspireprojectus to create Project Human: Changing the Way We See the World, a speaker series coming to schools and remote learners this fall. Project Human is designed to spark conversations focusing on unity and equality. It’s an opportunity for students to interact with public figures and do what they do best: Keep ‘em on their toes!

Taylor Swift has an “iconic” breakup ballad for him
Taylor Swift is known to create songs for her special someone. Although she did not confirm that she made songs for her ex, Jake Gyllenhaal, Swifties reportedly know all about the “Easter eggs,” hinting which songs are for the actor.
One of the rumored songs is from Swift’s Red album titled, “All Too Well.” A part of the lyrics goes: “You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed.”
Considering that Jake Gyllenhaal posted a throwback photo of him wearing his glasses as a kid, Swifties immediately spammed the comment section with the lyrics of the song. One fan even commented that it was a “mistake” of him to post a photo like this one, thinking that Taylor Swift’s fans would do nothing.
A fellow actor of Gyllenhaal also joked about it, according to Metro. West Side Story actress Rachel Zegler said that she would be “honest,” adding that the Nightcrawler star set himself up for this one.
Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal started to date in October 2010. After three months, though, the pair decided to end things between them.
