All Too Well: When Did Taylor Swift And Jake Gyllenhaal Date And Which Songs Are About Him?

When Folklore won the award for Album of the Year at the Grammys in March 2021, Taylor made sure to shout Joe out in her speech. I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine.” It was the first time she publicly mentioned him in this manner. She shared a similar sentiment while being honored with the Global Icon Award at the BRIT Awards in May. Unlike Taylor, Joe was able to go to college (he studied English literature and drama at the University of Bristol), and live a relatively normal life.

“Jake just told her it wasn’t working out,” a source told Us Weekly. “Taylor is really upset and hurt. She doesn’t know what she did for him to put a stop to it. She feels really burned by him.” Brown, 19, announced she’s engaged to boyfriend of two-and-a-half years Jake Bongiovi, confirming the happy news in a cute Instagram post that showed them both hugging and smiling, with a new ring on show on her left hand. However, it wasn’t Joe who Taylor spent the night dancing with at the Met Gala. Rather, she was caught spending quite a bit of quality time with Tom on the dance floor. By the beginning of June, news broke that Taylor and Calvin had split, and she was photographed kissing Tom in Rhode Island just two weeks later.

According to several reports, one of her first real high school boyfriends was a boy called Sam Armstrong. The internet learned about Armstrong’s existence after he tweeted a picture of him and Swift alongside the captions, “What if I told I dated her??” and “True story” (via It’s really, really hard to tell what’s happening in another person’s relationship. But it’s always okay to voice your discomfort, to go back and say, “That was not okay.” A whole decade can pass—and that memory can feel not so far away. “It was about a person who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him.

In the 2017 Swift song, “Dress,” Taylor sang about meeting Joe at this very event. “Flashback when you met me, your buzz cut and my hair bleached,” she croons on the track. Indeed, Taylor did have bleached hair, and Joe a buzz cut, at that year’s Met Gala. They were also pictured for the first time together as a couple weeks later. But in May 2017 it was reported they had been seeing each other for months, and Taylor had even introduced Joe to her best friends Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid. For months, reports on the couple were a minimum as they kept their blossoming romance out of the limelight.

They said that she was glorifying being thin and that this could lead to eating disorders. Taylor Swift is a beautiful and successful young woman who has achieved great things in her career. She is also someone who has been open about her struggles with her weight. Alwyn is not seen at any of Swift’s shows leading up to news of their breakup, although many other celebrities are.

The singer opened up about how “scary” it can be to fall in love with someone who has a “very grounded, normal way of living” and hasn’t been exposed to the kind of attention she faces. During a conversation with Paul McCartney for the cover of Rolling Stone, Swift spoke candidly about maintaining a “real life” with Alwyn. Swift and Alwyn reportedly rang in 2020 together at a luxury resort in the Maldives. Here’s the complete timeline of Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn’s relationship. The ‘Blank Space’ singer was born on December 13th, 1989, while the Day After Tomorrow actor was born on December 19th, 1980.

So this is a song full of words that I would say to him, that he deserves to hear,” Swift previously explained. “One of the big reasons that Gyllenhall ended the relationship with Swift was because of the media attention. He wasn’t comfortable with all of the attention that they received and wanted to maintain a certain level of privacy. He also became less comfortable with their age difference, which became more apparent the more they continued to date,” Fame10 previously reported. Swift dated Jarhead actor Jake Gyllenhaal for a few months in late 2010.

When asked whether she and Taylor had double-dated with their respective beaus (Selena was dating The Weeknd at the time), Selena shared that they hadn’t, but that she was happy for her pal. “Honestly, if my friends are happy, that makes me happy. That’s all I care about,” she said at the time. After Taylor’s split from Tom Hiddleston, she was officially linked with Joe, with The Sun claiming the musician was incognito in London wearing a wig to keep a low profile with her new boo. At the time, Taylor was taking some time off from the limelight and was rarely spotted in public. The couple could have been introduced by Tay’s friends Emma Stone and Gigi Hadid; Emma worked with him on The Favourite and he previously shot with Gigi for Vogue.

Harris, who accompanied Swift to the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, split in June 2016. A source told People at the time that Harris, who is believed to have inspired songs like “I Forgot That You Existed,” was “intimidated” by Swift’s success. “[Harris] said on multiple occasions that he was intimidated by Taylor, which is why he would not attend any events where she was being honored, or any award shows unless he was nominated,” the insider said. Swift and Styles began dating sometime in the fall of 2012, but the exact timing isn’t known since they weren’t officially photographed together until that December. By January 2013, they had officially called it quits, as evidenced by an iconic photo of Swift alone on a boat after reportedly leaving her vacation with Styles early. While their whirlwind romance only lasted a few months at most, it provided enough material for both artists.

While neither the singer, who is in the middle of her long-awaited Eras Stadium Tour, nor the actor have confirmed reports about their split, fans have already found some indication that they may be true after all. Taylor and British actor Joe have kept their six-and-a half-year relationship out of the spotlight, and have only publicly mentioned each other in passing. The pair met after being introduced by mutual friends in 2016, and made their first public appearance at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards.
