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...
