Drama, drama, drama. Jake Gyllenhaal‘s latest photoshoot does not go over “Too good” with Taylor Swift fans. The 41-year-old actor, who had briefly teamed up with the singer back in 2010, appeared to be talking about Swift’s extended 10-minute “All Too Well” song and accompanying music video in his recent photo shoot for W Mag.
In his portrait, the Brokeback Mountain the star wore a button down and matching heart-shaped sunglasses that are – you guessed it – red. The fashion choice was not lost on the Swifties, as the fan base literally did not waste time pointing out that the shades are eerily reminiscent of those who Evermore singer wore in her “22” music video.
