Here's why Taylor Swift fans can't get over Jake Gyllenhaal's most recent magazine photo shoot...
Listen to this article
Swifties are theorising that the Marvel star's recent feature in W Magazine is a reference to 'Red (Taylor's Version)' – a record that is widely considered to be inspired by the singer's relationship with Jake.
The pop sensation's 'Red' era is one of her most iconic to date, not to mention instantly recognisable!
So it didn't take fans long to see similarities between the actor's look and the album's unmistakable aesthetic...
Gyllenhaal appeared in a spread for the magazine to promote his latest film project, The Guilty, and the colour palette for the said shoot was – you guessed it – red.
The Spider-Man: Far From Home star donned a collection of red and white ensembles with one picture, in particular, grabbing everyone's attention.
In a snap posted by the publication to Instagram, Jake can be seen sporting a scarlet red satin shirt and heart-shaped sunglasses.
The comment section immediately flooded with Swift references as fans drew instant comparisons between Jake's outfit and Taylor's unique style, circa 2012.
The glasses bore a very convincing likeness to those worn by the songwriter in her iconic music video for '22'.
Many users left replies alluding to the songstress' recent re-release of the record, commenting: "Red (Jake's Version)".
Some fans also left references to Swift lyrics that alluded to her relationship with the 41-year-old.
One comment read: "You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-size bed," a line from one of her most infamous break-up ballads, 'All Too Well'.
Another lyrical reference read: "Loving him was red."
It's fair to say that Swifties has a field day in the comments! The actor is yet to speak out on the re-release of Taylor's fourth studio album in 2021.
We're sure Jake knows the Taylor Swift references all too well...
