The actor and singer got together in 2011, but the romance ended pretty quickly – and he would rather not talk about it now.
“I’m not necessarily guarded, but I consider intimacy to be very important and I don’t think everybody needs to know about my family or my personal details,” he told The Guardian while promoting his new movie Life. “I’m old-school in that way.”
When asked why he would date Taylor, then, who is “renowned for using past relationships as source material in her songs,” according to the interviewer, Jake replied, “I think when you’re in a relationship, you are constantly scrutinized, your friends are scrutinized, but… [shrug].”
Things got even more uncomfortable when the interviewer asked Jake if he had heard any of Taylor‘s songs rumored to be about their relationship, such as “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “All Too Well,” and “The Last Time.”
