Jake Gyllenhaal is starring in the film, “Stronger,” where he portrays Boston Marathon Bombing survivor Jeff Bauman.
And though the film is a serious one, Bauman hasn’t lost his Boston wit.
During a Facebook interview the real Bauman and the fake Bauman sat down for a little Q&A with each other. The real Bauman let Gyllenhaal have it.
First, he told him, “I always thought Ryan Reynolds would play me. Why didn’t that happen?”
Then, he really got down to business.
Bauman: “If you lost your legs in real life, do you think Taylor Swift would write a song about it?”
Gyllenhaal: “For me, or about it?”
Bauman: “For you, like a country song.”
Gyllenhaal: “She’s sort of moved more into pop now.”
Of course, the best song Swift has ever written– “All Too Well”– is supposedly about Gyllenhaal. And it looks like the whole family is sick of hearing about Swift’s tunes. Just recently, Jake’s sister Maggie was asked about Swift’s scarf she supposedly has.
She doesn’t have it.
