Last year in November, Taylor Swift released her album ‘Red’ and it became a topic of discussion among her fans.

Now, in a recent interview, the Spider-Man actor has reacted to Tay’s song and the reason behind disabling the comments section on his Instagram posts. Scroll below to read the scoop.
Both Taylor and Jake started dating in 2010 when Taylor was 20 and Jake was 29 and their sweet romance came to an end in 2011 just a year after them being together. After the song was released, fans finally figured out the reason behind their breakup and can you guess what it was? Well, according to eagle-eyed fans, it was their age gap.
Now, talking to Esquire Italia Jake Gyllenhaal revealed that he’s not angry with Taylor Swift and it’s an artists’ way of expressing through their music. He said, “It’s her way of expressing herself. Artists draw on their personal experiences to write songs and I’m not angry with her.”
Jake Gyllenhaal further spoke about Taylor Swift fans calling him a ‘villain’ and revealed the reason behind disabling comments on Instagram. The Spider-Man actor added, “At some point, I think it’s important that when a star’s supporters become unruly, we feel a responsibility to make them civil again and not allow cyberbullying. This involves a deeper philosophical question. About how we have to take responsibility for what we do. My question is: is this our future? Is anger our future? Or can we use empathy and civility in conversations?”
