Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift may have both moved on from their 2010 relationship, but the pop star’s fans remember it all too well.
Gyllenhaal, 39, posted a childhood photo of himself wearing glasses on Instagram Monday as a way to spotlight New Eyes for the Needy, an organization that provides prescription eyewear to those in financial need and that recently partnered with The Inspire Project on a special speaker series.
“I’ve worn my glasses every since I parted my hair meticulously with gel … which is why NEW EYES has always been near and dear to my heart,” the “Nightcrawler” star began his caption.
But Swifties couldn’t resist the opportunity to quote a line from her iconic 2012 breakup ballad “All Too Well,” which is rumored to be about Gyllenhaal: “You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-sized bed.”

I’ve worn my glasses ever since I parted my hair meticulously with gel (see above), which is why NEW EYES has always been near and dear to my heart. Since 1932, @neweyes_ has provided eyeglasses to people who needed them most. I’m thrilled that they’ve partnered with @theinspireprojectus to create Project Human: Changing the Way We See the World, a speaker series coming to schools and remote learners this fall. Project Human is designed to spark conversations focusing on unity and equality. It’s an opportunity for students to interact with public figures and do what they do best: Keep ‘em on their toes! For a full line-up of speakers or to bring Project Human to a school near you, visit: http://theinspireproject.us/project-human/
Before long, the actor’s comments were flooded with the lyric, with one fan adding, “u posted this pic and thought that the swifties would do nothing???? mistake.”
Even Gyllenhaal’s fellow thespians couldn’t help but poke fun at his throwback pic. “I’ll be honest mate you set yourself up for this one,” quipped “West Side Story” star Rachel Zegler.
