Jake Gyllenhaal’s sweet childhood photo was left littered with comments from Taylor Swift fans who couldn’t help but point out the lyric he inspired.
The Spider-Man: Far From Home star took to Instagram to share a cute black and white picture of himself as a child to raise awareness of an important cause.
The headshot shows Jake as a youngster smiling for the camera wearing a pair of round-framed glasses.
And Taylor’s fans couldn’t help but quote the lyrics to her song All Too Well.
Jake, 39, captioned his picture: “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! For a full line-up of speakers or to bring Project Human to a school near you, visit: http://theinspireproject.us/project-human/”
While many people praised him for his message, some simply quoted Taylor’s lyrics to him.
One wrote: “You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin sized bed”
Another asked him: “Is it true you used to be a lil kid with glasses in a twin sized bed”
A third wrote: “TS was right. “you used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin sized-bed”
And one joked: “i’ll be honest mate you set yourself up for this one”
Taylor and the Brokeback Mountain star dated for three months in 2010 and it’s widely believed that her song All Too Well from 2012 album Red was inspired by their romance.
The track, which is a big fan favourite, also famously references a scarf that Taylor left at Jake’s sister Maggie’s home.
Taylor is now in a relationship with actor Joe Alwyn, who she’s been dating since 2017, while Jake has been seeing model Jeanne Cadieu for almost two years.
