Is Jake Gyllenhaal the next victim in Taylor Swift’s lyrics? It could be so.
Swift, 20, and Gyllenhaal, 29, spent the weekend together in New York City. Their rendezvous began with them attending Saturday Night Live in Manhattan together. The broadcast was hosted by Swift’s friend, Emma Stone.
“They showed up together. They walked around together backstage, but they were careful not to be seen too close. It was hard to tell if they were together, but everyone was shocked that she brought him,” a source told People.
The country star and actor had Sunday brunch together with another couple at Al Di La in Brooklyn. An onlooker claims the pair looked “friendly.” The brunch was followed by a stroll around Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood.
Both of their reps have no comment.
Gyllenhaal might be exactly was Swift is looking for in a man. The country star recently told People, “Right now the most attractive quality in a guy is a sense of adventure and romance. I’d love to meet someone who would do thoughtful things throughout the relationship to remind me that he was listening to me, knows me and wants to surprise me. Someone who does little things, just sweet little gestures, that’s what I’d wish for in a guy.”
Swift also recently said she’s ready to put herself back on the market to find the right guy. “I love going on dates and getting to know people. For me, love is something I occasionally make an exception for if it feels right. I don’t search it out. I just think that if I’m supposed to meet someone, I will.”
Besides the almost-decade age gap between them, who else doesn’t see this working out? I may be a bit envious if it’s true, but Gyllenhaal is way too yummy for Swift. Just saying.
