Anne Hathaway Confirms Taylor Swift & Jake Gyllenhaal Dated (About 5 Years Too Late)
One of the biggest celebrity relationship mysteries might have just been solved thanks to Princess Mia Thermopolis herself. While chatting with Glamour, Anne Hathaway talked about meeting Taylor Swift. However, during that conversation, the actress pretty much confirmed Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal dated. To my knowledge and based on several interviews with both the singer and actor, neither have ever officially said, "Yes, we dated." Obviously, they've talked about each other coyly and were photographed together, but whether they did or didn't have a thing has never been solidified. That is, until now.
Here's what Hathaway told Glamour, while discussing T. Swift:
She just seems to be following her heart. I met her — I hope it's OK to say this — when she and Jake [Gyllenhaal] were together. She was 20 at the time, and we hung out one night. I was like, "You are a magnificent creature." She was on fire and I've watched her become this force of nature.
Oh snap. Making it appear even more clear that the relationship was real is that Hathaway wasn't sure should even mention the former couple. I bet Hathaway met Swift while she was filming Love & Other Drugs with Gyllenhaal. And she obviously fell in love with the singer just like everyone else in the world.
I don't think anyone ever doubted Swift and Gyllenhaal were a couple, but now we pretty much have proof. I hope this doesn't ruin Hathaway's friendship with Swift or Gyllenhaal. But I really doubt that, because Swift is all about supporting other women in the entertainment industry. Instead, they'll probably just have a chat and then we'll all notice that Hathaway joined Swift's "squad."
Whatever happens, I just have one thing to say: Thanks for spilling the beans, Anne.
