The “Spider-Man: Far From Home” actor shared an adorable throwback photo of himself as a young kid wearing glasses on Instagram Monday, which opened the floodgates for Swifties to relitigate his short-lived and heavily publicized romance with the pop star.
The onetime couple briefly dated for a few months at the end of 2010, generating photos of the two walking arm-in-arm that splashed across the tabloids for weeks. A snap of them cuddling up while holding the peak-fall beverage long outlasted their actual relationship.
“I’ve worn my glasses ever since I parted my hair meticulously with gel (see above),” Gyllenhaal captioned the old photo, directing followers’ attention to the nonprofit New Eyes, which provides eyewear for communities in need.
Now why did Swift fans target this photo, specifically? Well, buckle in.
Swift’s 2012 ballad “All Too Well” from her album “Red” ― perhaps her most-celebrated song to date ― has long been rumored to be about the demise of her romance with Gyllenhaal.
