It must be pretty awkward to have Taylor Swift as an ex.
She’s one of the world’s most famous singers right now – and she’s been very open about her new relationship with Calvin Harris.
So it’s not really like you can just skip town and forget about her.
Luckily, T-Swizzle’s ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal seems to be well and truly over it. He’s even able to laugh about their romance.
How do we know this? Well, Jake endured what could have been a pretty cringe-worthy interview yesterday.
The actor, 34, was talking about his movie Southpaw on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show when Taylor, 25, came up in conversation.
Howard told Jake: ‘I feel – and this is me stepping in – you should have married Taylor Swift, and I’ll tell you why… what a power couple!’
Jake – who dated the singer for three months in 2010 – jokingly replied: ‘Why didn’t you have me on this show sooner?’
Unabashed, Howard continued: ‘I would have said: “Jake, this is The One.” Because to me, nothing is sexier than a woman who can play songs and write.’
Jake was very gracious, telling the shock jock that Taylor is a ‘beautiful girl’. Aw.
Despite being quite open about his and Taylor’s fling, Jake came over *very* shy when Howard’s co-host Robin Quivers mentioned that the singer had penned a tune about him.
‘Do I [have a song about me]? I don’t know,’ he said. Ahh, c’mon Jake. We ALL know that All Too Well is based on you!

Taylor isn’t the only high-profile lady Jake has hooked up with over the years. He’s also had relationships with stars including Kirsten Dunst and Reese Witherspoon.
Some of these break-ups must have hit him pretty hard. When Howard asked how many time he’s been in love, he answered: ‘Three times… twice.’
Hmmm. We wonder who he was talking about?
